This loft-like downtown spot serves a hearty brunch every day until 3 p.m. Try the Big Damn Breakfast and you’ll be fueled up for the rest of the day. For dinner it serves a mean burger, and offer the occasional can’t-miss burger and bourbon special.
The Fern Creek neighborhood’s best dining spot, the pub boasts an eclectic menu. Favorites include the Kentucky Hot Brown, frog legs, Icelandic cod and jumbo shrimp, along with soup du jour and gumbo. Beer garden in back for private parties.
This 48-seat brewpub features at least seven house brews on tap — along with an occasional guest beer. The pub fare accommodates both meat-lovers and vegetarians. Save room for the house dessert — ice cream made with malt from the brewer’s Nitro Porter.
This wildly (excuse the pun) popular breakfast and lunch spot is an ode to the egg. The dining room features egg art and even egg-shaped salt and pepper shakers. The creatively titled offerings include “Violet You’re Turning Violet” blueberry pancakes and “Crispy Hippie Crunch” granola waffles.
This bistro, located in an historic former stop on the L&N railroad, has an exposed-brick interior and fireplaces that lend a cozy feeling. The seasonally-changing menu offers dishes to pair perfectly with the extensive wine selection, which can be ordered by the taste, glass, or bottle.
