Have visited Bristol Bar & Grill numerous times. We like the one on Hurstbourne best. The one at Prospect has limited menu and poor decor . Hurstbourne menu selection is good and food also very good. Brunch is great ... but get there early to beat crowds.

I agree with a previous reviewer that the menu is limited. I settled on a spinach salad with chicken. The chicken tasted cold and unfresh, like it was previously frozen. The rest was just spinach with some cheese crumbles. I could've put this together myself for much cheaper. I expected more from a local restaurant. I think I would rather... More

I have visited Louisville several times but this was my husband's first visit. Finding good local food was easy when I asked the front desk where they eat. It also was close to the hotel. Inside seating was available in either a large atrium or the regular restaurant. Despite being November we could have eaten outside because it was a... More

This restaurant is right next door to the hotel where most of the family were staying so we decided to give it a try. There is something for everyone on the menu....steaks, seafood, salads, sandwiches, etc. The... More

A lunch check for the three of us came to $50 and that was by just ordering two burgers and a lunch portion of salmon. The server was attentive and friendly. I had to send my salmon back because it was undercooked. It's a clean, well-decorated place that might be better suited for a romantic dinner or a business lunch... More

I love fish tacos and these were outstanding. The combination of ingredients made it a very special meal. The amount on each taco was eye pooping and I was very satisfied after the meal was done

I rarely eat at the Bristol on the East side, but decided to stop in there for lunch today. The weather was beautiful, so I sat in the outdoor seating, which is very nice and plentiful. I had the pepper cheese Bristol burger, which was great, as always, with their delicious skillet fries and a great Grey Goose Collins. The... More
