Description: Located on Frankfort Avenue's restaurant row in the historic Clifton neighborhood, we offer more than 130 bourbons, as well as a selection of antique expression whiskies that you won't find anywhere else. Bourbons features upscale dining in an elegant but casual atmosphere and a bourbon-inspired seasonal menu graced southern inspired cuisine.

Who knew you could pair peppercorn crusted filet with mushroom bread pudding and herb infused ricotta cheese? Awesome. Also had a very nice meat/cheese platter as an appetizer. As you might guess by the name, they have many bourbons (over 100). They also serve bourbon barrel beers and Coke products. Server was extremely helpful without being bothersome.

So wonderful to find a restaurant that has not gone the way of the "elevated SoutherN" trend. Duck confit and soy braised short ribs were excellent, lobster bruschetta had my husbands eyes rolling back in his head in pleasure. Service friendly but not hovering, lovely room.

We didn't eat here but the food looked good. We sat at the bar and tasted several flights of bourbon. They have many bourbons to taste and the bar staff is very knowledgeable.

I took my wife to brunch this last Mother's Day and she was pleased with the selection of food. Although not a huge fan of fried chicken(think KFC) this was one of the most tender and flavorful pieces of chicken we have tasted. The one down side was having a 1:45 pm sitting after everyone was finishing brunch. Much of the food was gone and we had to wait for them to replenish the empty containers. On the bright side they brought the food directly to our table to compensate for this. Service was good and surroundings pleasant. We will have to go back to check out the menu when they are not exclusively serving brunch. The restaurant is located in the historic Frankfort Ave area near many interesting local shops.

Possibly one of the best meals I have ever been served. The oyster and the shrimp appetizers were great. Perfect spice, preparation, and presentation. Entree was the Short Rib. Amazing is the only way to describe it. And don't forget the great bourbon flights! If you only have one night to eat out in Louisville, this should be your place.
