The food was delicious. Crab appetizer, clam chowder, grill mix, grouper— all excellent. Yes it’s pricey, however quality was delicious.

We were in Louisville for a concert & decided to eat at Brendon’s Catch 23 based on the reviews. We were greatly disappointed. The restaurant was very loud. My husband wanted to customize a combo (steak & king crab leg) & was told they don’t vary from the menu. He asked to see the general manager. 20 minutes passed, with no visit from the general menu. He saw a man in a suit who was possibly the general manager. He approached him & asked if was the GM. The man said he was. When my husband said he had asked to see him, the GM said he delivered my salad. He didn’t identify himself or ask if we had wanted to speak to him. But he did reaffirm the restaurant policy of no alterations to the menu. We have dined in fine restaurants from DC to Atlanta & have never heard of such an inflexible policy. Anyway, I ordered the seared scallops. They were cooked perfectly, but the accompanying sauce was bland. The scallops were only seasoned with salt & pepper. The only standout was the heirloom tomato salad with fresh mozzarella & basil infused olive oil. My husband’s 18oz rib eye looked more like 12 oz. Needless to say, we won’t return

Brendon's Catch 23 had incredibly good food as always - and after holding this large customer event there for the last three or four years we were again very satisfied. The waiting staff AND especially the maitre d' was very attentive to our desires and I have nothing negative to say. It was an outstanding dinner.

That said - even when the place was not very busy yet, like from 5pm to 6:30pm - the bar staff was extremely slow. They worked the waitress and waiter side of the bar and pretty much ignored our side of the bar. We have to literally go around the bar to get their attention for drink reorders or new orders as folks arrived. The problem truly was a bit disappointing - as the entire establishment could have made hundreds more dollars if they had just tried a little harder.

Otherwise, a great time.

This restaurant was across the street from our hotel and had been recommended by a local. It was crowded on a Saturday night but the service couldn't have been more attentive. The seafood was fresh and delicious; we ordered the two tier seafood appetizer which was fabulous and was presented with special effects! All the entrees were delicious---the ceviche and the tuna were sublime. For dessert, don't miss the butter cake or the bread pudding.

While on business in Louisville on a very rainy evening, I was looking for something different which was also close to the hotel. Brendon's was a good choice. The ambience was wonderful (in an older commercial building with pillars and high ceilings. I had the oysters for an appetizer which were actually much smaller than I expected. The sea scallops entree with risotto was very good. The service was excellent.
