Poor experience, service and food. Disappointed overall. Wait staff more interested in socializing than attending to customers. Food was average with brisket over spiced and undercooked. Price not in line with the value. Together made for poor experience.

Cool restaurant built in an old firehouse, in an emerging neighbourhood. 8 pages of bourbon to choose from, cool and tasty mixed drinks, very solid and diverse beer selection. Big portions, good BBQ and a compact but wide ranging menu. Helpful and cool staff. Lots of choices in Louisville, but this one is one you shouldn't miss.

Our tour guide at Four Roses Bottling recommended The Silver Dollar and we are so glad we came on our last night in Louisville. I had the Chicken & Waffles and my husband had a burger and everything was cooked perfectly. Our server Nick gave us wonderful bourbon tips and we enjoyed them all.

Great drinks and food menu. The beer can chicken is awesome! All 3 of us had something different and we all enjoyed it. Great ambience with outdoor and indoor spots. There's a cute dessert place across the road if you want to top off the night with something sweet!

Great experience. Chicken and waffles, fried okra, and cocktails were the highlight of our experience.

Stopped by for a couple of drinks on New Years Eve. Outstanding bourbon selection.....knowledgeable and efficient bartenders. Ambience and atmosphere is relaxing and fun. Enjoyable time.

We've been visiting Louisville for years and found a new fav in The Silver Dollar. Our table had brisket, spicy chicken thighs, and chicken and waffles. Sides were collard greens and hashbrowns. Every dish was amazing. My fav: chicken thighs. Service, drinks, and atmosphere were perfect. Alex, our server, made great recommendations and made us smile from the moment we... More

We visited Silver Dollar on a Saturday around 2 p.m. We had quickly scanned the online menu in the car before deciding to give this place a try. Several of the dinner items had us craving the beer can chicken, pork chops, or fried catfish. However, when we were seated we were told we could only order from the brunch... More

We tried the Silver Dollar for the first time on a Friday for a holiday get-together with a friend. The restaurant is cozy and charming, with exposed brick behind the bar and seating that does not make you feel as if you are piled on top of other diners. Service was attentive and responsive. There is a small, but well-chosen... More

6 of us arrived at 5pm on a Saturday evening and were seated right away. We were celebrating a 26th birthday, and when we reported this to our (most excellent) server Ibrahim, the birthday boy received a free shot! Highlights of what I ordered: The Kentucky Mule cocktail provided a nice kick. My pork chop was served with a whole... More
