We stumbled upon this restaurant on our drive around downtown. The food was great, burgers, sandwiches, troll fries, and especially beer cheese and pretzels. Friendly staff and quick service. I would stop by here again if in town.

We stumbled on this and it was excellent. I ordered the Philly cheesesteak and oh my! It did not disappoint. Hubby got a hot brown and said that it was the best he's had. Make sure to visit when in town.

Uncooked pretzels, cold beer cheese and average lunch club is what I am left with after my visit to the troll pub. Was totally bummed!

Cute little place. Kids love the atmosphere. Food was excellent and service was great! Check it out--a few blocks from the Slugger factory.

If you're looking for a dark getaway from the typical bourbon places of Louisville, this is a nice place to try. The burger and fries were good, but not memorable. The unique location and feeling are the best reasons to visit.

Yes, it is about 10-15 minutes depending on time of day. It sits on the opposite side of the Yum Center from the Galt House.

It depends on the sense of humor of the wedding party. The place is a dungeon with low lighting. But it should be a perfect place for lots of noise!
