We have 2 Semi-Private dining rooms available for large parties located in the back portion of our restaurant. While most of the restaurant is laid out "shotgun" style, these two rooms open up to a spacious area with a contemporary yet rustic feel.

Oysters on half shell were great. Bourbon list is extensive, with superb selections. Smoked chicken, the sampler platter and every side were all delicious. No room for dessert. Waiters kept drinks coming, and checked on us enough.

I was expecting more I guess. They weren't bad, my food was good (pulled pork sandwich). My husband didn't like his ribs (said too dry) or the brisket( not a good texture). He even said he liked Mark's Feed Store better. BBQ is our favorite and for the price and overall taste, it wasn't good enough that we will probably try it again. It was a cute building and the service was good.

If you're a salmon fan, this is your place! Each time I have gone to Doc Crow's it has been perfectly prepared and the dish (as is) is incredibly well executed. Add the charm of their incredible servers and beautiful atmosphere, and you've got a winning combination!
Other items to indulge in would be: the collard greens, Oysters Rockefeller, shrimp, and brisket!
You can't make a bad choice here!

Being from New Orleans, I was more than pleased with the menu selections. All three of us enjoyed our meals and the experience, so we returned to the restaurant (that same evening) for a nightcap or two. We walked away just as pleased.

The service and food was great. I booked the reservation for a surprise birthday dinner for my boyfriend, and even noted and called the hostess to make sure they knew it was a surprise. However, when we got there the hostess couldn't find our reservation and eventually ruined the surprise by telling my boyfriend and I our party was waiting for us in the back of the restaurant.

Little disappointing. Although it wasn't very busy when we arrived, the service was extraordinarily slow to start, but it did improve somewhat as the evening went on. The pulled pork was really fatty. In both the heapin' chips and my entree. The bill was reasonable, $158 for 6 people that included 2 glasses of wine and 2 cocktails

The restaurant atmosphere and service was great. The food not so much. Brisket was fair. Cole slaw was terrible ( no taste). Baked beans mediocre at best. Bread on po boy was good. Sweet potato fries were decent.
Side note. I'm not a picky eater. I had really looked forward to going. I was disappointed.

My visit left alot to desire. The ribs, pulled pork and brisket were all disappointing. On a lighter note, the service was excellent. I would not give this establishment my business ever again. I have eaten smoked meats plenty of times in my life, and there are plenty of better options in Louisville.

it was way to loud , server not friendly, told me I had 0.00 on my gift cards (although I knew better) I told her to get the manager to check it finally came back out and said both had money on them, food was just okay

Food is actually pretty good. Our server was fair. Ambience is poor. There is a front dining room with the bar, and a back dining room. Connecting these two rooms is basically a very wide hall with open viewing access to the kitchen. There are about 7 tables in this area. Two or three of these tables are directly across from the open kitchen. Despite making reservations ahead of time, we were seated at one of these tables. The noise level of clanging dishes and cooking utensils is loud and constant. It was pretty miserable. I could not wait to leave. I would not eat here again, despite food that was decent and at a fair price.

I am a repeat customer of The smokehouse and this visit had exceptional service. After arriving an hour earlier than the reservation, we were seated promptly with no question. The food was as expected and excellent. The service was great though the server was busy with some large tables.
I describe the restaurant as having excellent smoked meats, great cocktails, but to me, the stars of the show are the side dishes.

We've dined at Doctor Crows several times, the food is always good. The pulled pork and beef brisket are some of the best in the city. Our complaint is with the service. We feel invisible when we go. The server takes our order and we don't see them again until we ask for the check. This has happened on each of our visits.

This is the second time eating at Doc Crows. I would have liked the seating to be more comfortable. The booths really need to be fixed and that took away from a more positive experience. Service was ok. The food came a bit rushed with apps and main course running into each other. I would have liked our wait person to have noticed that without us telling her we were not ready for our main course. Still, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and the food good without pretense. That makes me happy.

I arrived early for my reservation and took a stool at the Bar. The bartender was very knowledgeable of their vast Bourbon collection. He served me 3 taste and all 3 were hits.
The Oysters Rockefeller were good but a bit small only 4. I ordered the pork chops with greens, the chops were crispy and juicy. The mashed potatoes were not seasons and the greens had a tad bit too much vinegar for my liking. overall a good dinner and service was good.
Fantastic local place by the YUM center ...
Fantastic local place by the YUM center and downtown activities. Oysters, beers and a wide selection of bourbons and wines. The food is comfort but with interesting twists of flavor. Appetizers to share or whole dinners and super salads. Always a place to stop in whenever in town.
