The bar offers a nice selection of draft beers and bourbons. The bartender was very nice and knowledgeable about the local craft beers and bourbon. She suggested places we may want to visit and was just plain nice. We enjoyed our visit.

This is the place to enjoy the best fried chicken in all of Kentucky! Awesome people! Service was so friendly too!

For a place with good reviews we clearly hit it on a wrong day... The dinning room was not open, despite serving lunch until 2pm... We sat in the bar and there was one person doing both bartending and serving... The food was just OK, the service was poor and we had a bit of a weird discussion with the... More

No. 1 not because of it being the first one in time (it was actually our 5th stop on the Bourbon Trail), but the 1st and best in terms of service and attention. We were heading back to our hotel on a dark and chilly night and wanted to do two things on the way, get another stamp in our... More

My wife and I were looking to have dinner downtown prior to the theater and decided to try Sway again. We ate here once before a couple of years ago. We had a reservation for 5pm on valentines day, which is early for us, but our show was at 7:30. It was very quite at this time, since it was... More

The food I ordered was great, but even with reservations we ended up waiting over 35 minutes for the appetizer to come out. We were about to leave. The fried chicken with gravy, mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts were all good. The sweet potato my husband ordered was ridiculously small. There was more butter than potato.

Got into town late and found this place at the Hyatt. Had the southern fried chicken and it was excellent! Perfectly cooked. Would definitely come back again. The manhattans were pretty good too, except need better cherries.

Quick, pleasant service. Seated at the open window. Weather was perfect. Ordered the deviled eggs. Beautifully presented and tasted very good. I was offered a choice of biscuits or cornbread opting for the biscuits. They looked great but were undercooked with an odd tasting sweet butter. Not my favorite. I ordered the shrimp and grits which was spicy, creamy awesomeness... More

I arrived from the airport at 11 PM, so I went for this as a quick and easy option. I had the chicken fried steak sandwich, which was good, though a little heavy on the sauce. And the french fries were boring and bland. I also had fried green tomatoes, which I had never had before. Not sure what they... More
