Historic Restaurants In Louisville KY

The new Walker's Exchange has been serving the fine folks of Louisville and beyond since November 2019. Long before this 250+ seat establishment opened its doors for three square meals a day, Walker's Exchange fed travelers from near and far as Louisville's first full service restaurant. The new Walker's touts an open kitchen and patio seating next to The Belvedere.
