Painted like a cartoon barbershop with striped awnings and kooky art inside and out, Lynn's stands out visually without a doubt. The main entryway is actually a fully stocked gift shop full of wacky toys and costumes, so waiting for a table is never dull. Thankfully, the food and drink live up to the high expectations set by the ambiance. Southern staples are done up right, with some creative flourishes for good measure. The Fried Green Tomato BLT is a stunner, much like Lynn's world-famous French Toast. Dinners are a little heartier, and there's a full bar for the quenching of thirsts (cocktails are appropriately funky too). See website for menu, party planning assistance, and Lynn's bio.

Beer nerds take note: The Nachbar is the place to be for beer selection in Louisville. There's a hefty menu of Belgians, Germans, other imports, and the best of the American microbrewery offerings. Lots of bottles, and lots of draft selections too. The walls are of exposed brick, there's billiards and a backyard, and a full bar in case beer isn't your thing. There's rock'n'roll on the jukebox, locals bellied up to the bar, and the decor seems not to have been updated since the '70s. See website for beer list, photos and more.
