    My husband and I had dining reservations at Walkers Exchange for Thanksgiving dinner. The food was very good, and our server was very attentive and friendly. We would definitely dine there again.

    VERY disappointing for The Galt House. Food quality on the buffet poor and not maintained - products not stirred or temped, so they were crusted over and lukewarm; many food outages (gravy?? Pumpkin pie out at 3:00 and not restocked during my entire time there?? cheese and meat trays 2/3 empty? Etc.) Buffet stations never cleaned during my entire visit - never wiped down, food debris everywhere. For a special occasion buffet that was taking reservations, this was a huge disappointment.

    Made reservations on thanksgiving day for a standard table, not the brunch. Got there and all that was offered was th $40 per person brunch. None of us could eat that much so we left. Thats why just 1 star on food, because we never ate so I cannot comment or rate. I guess Im glad something was open on thanksgiving, we ended up going to neighborhood services and were extremely pleased there.

    Our family wanted an alternative option for Thanksgiving lunch/dinner and Walker's Exchange provided the perfect option. The food options were outstanding, delicious, and fresh. The service was fast, incredibly friendly, and on point. Our family loved the relaxing environment to have a great Thanksgiving lunch/dinner. This is a great option for any meal.

    A little convoluted to find inside the Galt West Tower but once we were there, we were seated quickly and served quickly upon being seated. Our server was very attentive and everything came correct and timely. And the food was UNREAL. We got the hush puppies as an appetizer and the portion size alone was shocking. It would take me three whole meals to finish this many hush puppies. They were so good though. For entrees, my husband got the boneless hot honey fried chicken and it was perfectly crispy and perfectly cooked. I got the streak frites and it was also delish. We both tried a cocktail each (as a date tradition) 4th street bramble was so good although the vida en fuego Paloma was a little bitter for our tastes. The enviornment was cozy, and low key, there were a steady stream of patrons although it never felt crowded or loud at any point. Highly highly recommend and will be returning asap.

    Not the best experience or food. Service was terrible. Didn’t see waiter again from ordering food until we had to ask for our check. Appetizer was brought out at the same time as entree. Didn’t receive all items that came with meal without asking multiple times.

    This place has so much potential! My son and I went before a show at the KY Center which made it super convenient. The prices were fine. We had steak and fries but could have gotten a better steak and fries with a salad and drink for cheaper at Outback but for the location I am willing to pay more but the quality was lacking. We had to flag down the server several times to refill drinks, get steak sauce (the herb butter couldn’t save the cut of meat we got), and he never came by to ask us how the meal was. We had planned enough time for a leisurely meal but when I asked for the dessert menu I was told they had derby pie. So, no coffee and dessert since we aren’t big derby pie fans. The ambiance and sound level was great when we arrived although the tables are a little close together but the volume on the music was turned up halfway thru dinner which totally distracted from table conversation but not as loud as you might find in a bar. They have spent a lot of money to make the place a beautiful location but they lost my business on the food. Workers were nice and cordial so I could overlook the inattentive experience we had. I hope they improve because I would love an excuse to make this one of our go-to downtown spots since we frequently attend events at the KY Center.

    We walked out before ordering. The hostess wasn't helpful at all. Friendly at greeting, but my chair had oily food on it and she gave me a wipe to clean it myself ! No apology, no offer to get a fresh chair. Then we were told that we would be greeted by our server AFTER he took the order from the party of 16. No offer by hostess to get us a drink or cocktail. Menu was ordinary and limited. Parking lot outrageous, no validation. I expected much more from a restaurant housed in such a prestigious hotel. Do not recommend, will never go back. ZERO stars. Terrible experience.

    The service was so slow. We didn’t get our drinks until after 30 minutes of sitting there. Then at the end the waiter brought the bill and charged me for a larger size drink than I ordered? I would go somewhere else if I were you.

    Service was terrible! Received appetizers with meal and meal was cold. Never checked to see if our meal was good or if we wanted another drink! There was hardly any one in the restaurant so it was not because they were under staffed.

    Service was limited. Never received our appetizer, took several requests to get water, and finding our waitress was a challenge. Maybe they were short-handed? The food was great - especially the Steak Frites - great flavor. Citrus carrots, too! Decent prices, as well.

    Our server was Ajit (on an exchange work visa from India). We were so amazed at his work ethic and smile and positive energy. He was very enthusiastic to be working and be our waiter. We felt he really wanted to ensure we enjoyed our food and beverage. He offered a sample of the beer I asked about. This made for a very delightful date for me and my husband. Thank you Ajit!
