This old Louisville tradition, worthy successor to the old Bill Boland's, earns a warm recommendation: From its cozy setting in a historic Buechel home (once a log cabin) to its down-home service to its good American-style fare at reasonable prices, this place is just plain comfortable, and a prime choice for a family get-together. $$
