    We’ve been to the exchange several times and enjoyed it each time. Our server needed s a little pep in her step, I think she took a Valium before she came to work. Our first round of drinks were not correct, they did fix it but I can’t understand how you mess up a cosmo or basic Jack & Diet Coke. The menu needs a few more items added back, it has gotten really sparse.

    Great service from staff. 10 oz steak was at best 6 oz and over cooked. 12 dollars more and I could eat a true 16oz steak from an actual steak house. Nashville hot chicken was good.

    Cool place and suggest if you near Churchill Downs or fairgrounds….make the 10min drive over. Town was very nice and people friendly. We had the Rattlesnake Pasta and Steak Frites. Food was very good and service was ok. Would definitely go back if/when in area.

    Restaurant is beautiful, food was amazing, and drinks were great! I want to commend our waitress Camille for outstanding service! We went back a second time to have drinks and were lucky enough to have her again. She was attentive, not pushy, personable, and gave great recommendations! One of the best servers I have had in a long time. I would definitely go back to this restaurant if I was ever in New Albany again!

    Annie is a great server. I really appreciate and enjoy her ability to treat the customers as she would like to be treated. One of my reason for coming to this restaurant is my appreciation for Annie. This establishment should not take her for grant the connection that she has with her regular customers.

    Our first time in and we will be back. Everything was wonderful. The appetizers were warm and tasty and served in just the right amount of time. Plenty of specialty drinks to pick from, wine and beer options too. We had the burger and sirloin entrees and 100% recommend. So much food it was hard to finish. But save room for the bourbon smoked sugar topped ice cream and that warm chocolate chip cookie we split 3 ways.

    My dinner was perfect (steak frites); husband’s dinner of fish & chips should have been sent back. Either the fish was bad or terribly undercooked. Didn’t want to make a fuss so he just shared my plate.

    The reservation was made with ease, we were seated right away. For an app we had the short rib tots - OMG - delicious! My friends had the fish and he loved it but I had the caprese chicken sandwich and I didn't think it was very good. The fries were, and I love caprese salads so I thought I would like it but i really could not take much other than the chicken. Everything was great - except the sandwich.

    We had drinks and appetizers. Highly suggest having the Betty White after the meal or to end with as it is slightly sweet. Goat cheese fritters are to die for!!!! It was very loud as there were a few large groups of diners. The musician was also amazing. Services was a bit off so I might suggest picking a time to go before dinner rush or after if you’re only going for drinks.
