    I look forward to dining at The Black Jockey. Love the catfish and shrimp with grits. I love the atmosphere and had a chance to speak with executive chef, and I need to dine there more than just holidays .

    This was probably the best customer service I’ve received in a long time! Diamond was terrific. The food was good, and very reasonably priced and the live music was great. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Louisville.

    Best part of the experience was the music. Menu is an interesting cross between who knows what and Soul Food. It is like someone created a menu of their own favorite food. Taste of food - catfish below average due breading and tarter sauce were most likely store bought and very little flavor. Wings - needed more crisp, the jerk and Thai sauce were definitely store bought. Fried green tomatoes average. Salad average. Bar - limited. How can a bar in Louisville, KY not make a decent Old Fashion. I do see potential, need to be great at the food on an eclectic menu. Service was good. I'd try it again because of the music and service or I may just go for the music and totally skip the food.

    The waitress we had was very inattentive. She bring the food out in piece and we didn’t eat together. Our drinks were sitting at the bar even just a Coke. We had to ask Momma Dee to help her. She never said how is everything can get you any condiments. The greens were filled with vinegar and it was just a bad experience this night.

    It's a lively place. Service is friendly but a bit slow. Burgers were good but salmon just ok. Old fashioned was disappointing, particularly in bourbon country

    Was disappointed that we had to use our phone for the menu. The chicken in my pasta was overcooked and rubbery as well as cold, although the rest of the pasta was enjoyable. I had requested a standard table when I made the reservation, but they took us to a high top. I told them I was unable to sit at that and she found another table. The server was less than attentive and couldn't tell us what the special was. The high point of the evening was that it was directly across the street from the Palace so it was easy access for the Bob Dylan concert. Not likely to recommend unless going to a show afterwards.
