Great Crab Cake and Wine – Club Grotto is a consistent star in Louisville. You'll always have a good meal at this restaurant. The shrimp and grit cake is a good starter, but the scallop appetizer can't be beat. For salads, the bibb salad with brie is always fresh and appealing. Entrees - from the pike to the vegetable platter and the short ribs, the chef does a great job. The waiters are all very knowledgable about the menu and the wines. It's a great place to enjoy a fusion of Kentucky dishes with a pacific flair.

Club Grotto was GREAT! – The food and the service at Club Grotto was TOP notch!! We were dining with several friends and we had several appetizers; the New Orleans shrimp, the oysters, and the fried green tomatoes: all were superb. I had the grouper and my husband had the filet for our entrees: both were delicious. The chocolate souffle was TO DIE FOR. Not only was the food fantastic, but the service was awesome as well. In addition, the wine list was excellent, and there were also several interesting Bourbon choices on the spirits menu. I highly recommend Club Grotto for your next upscale dining experience.

The Best of Louisville – I can't understand why Club Grotto is only rated 3.5 stars. It is the best in Louisville.

It is always consistant and has one of the best menus in town. The service is always 5 stars! Wonderful wine list and reasonable drink prices. The McKinney's, who own the restaurant always make you feel welcome. It is my favorite!!

New Orleans shrimp, corn pudding and other Southern specialties served in a cavernous setting. – The Scene
Gargoyles, fish tanks and framed photos that look like stills from a Hitchcock film comprise Club Grotto's eclectic decor. When the sun goes down, the dining room becomes so dark and cave-like that it's hard to read the menu.

The Food
The menu features international fare, but focuses on Southern specialties. New Orleans barbecued shrimp makes a feisty but delicious appetizer. The walleyed pike is rolled in cornmeal, fried and served with a delectable array of vegetables, including real mashed potatoes, beets, corn pudding, and seasonal greens. Adventurous diners might want to try the sauteed calf's liver with caramelized onions or the ever-changing Vegetable Orgy. Chef Jim McKinney's seasonal soups are terrific.

Dish to Die For
The fallen chocolate souffl? is like a turbo-charged brownie drowning in hot fudge.
