Troll Pub Under the Bridge

It’s a good day when my parents come to town, and I always make sure we go somewhere new to eat when they are here.  It’s also not very often you will see 61 degree weather on a December Saturday night in Louisville.  So after taking in a play at the Kentucky Center we decided to stroll down Whiskey Row until something popped out at us.  This particular night it happened to be Troll Pub Under the Bridge.  Anything with a whimsical troll beckoning passersby to enter deserves a shot, so we obliged the troll and took a chance.

Seeing as how IPA beers are my favorite, when an IPA beer cheese is on the menu I have to order some.  Served with hot pretzel bread sticks I have to say the beer cheese was the best part of the meal.  The beer did not overpower the cheese as there was a perfect balance of flavors.  Between the three of us we split an order of mild wings and a 10” supreme pizza.  The wings were crispy and flavorsome with in-house made sauce.  The pizza was a big disappointment.  To me it tasted like something that came out of a freezer and was thrown in an oven.  The saving grace of this particular establishment is the building that it’s in.  With giant wooden doors and large gothic handles as you enter, exposed brick walls, and large industrial doors (I decided belonged in a mine somewhere) in the bathroom as art, you can’t help but enjoy the space.  It is my sincere hope that Whiskey Row continues to grow and with it the restaurant scene as well.
