This is a new location. It is nice to have it in this area. I have never had the level of service from a fast food place as here. The staff was the best and the food fresh. Great addition to the area and such a pleasure experience.

Reviews:
It was love at first bite at this friendly southern Indiana restaurant. We started with the aromatic garlic bread, with crunchy crust and soft insides. Our expectation for the rest of the meal was high after that and they did not disappoint. All my lunch mates raved about all their dishes which ranged from the chicken parmesan to lasagna. Each dish was large and delicious. My luigini with clams took me back to a small Italian restaurant by the Vatican city. The most memorable part for us all was the small town welcome and hospitality from our waiter and charismatic owner. The owner is an Egyptian New Yorker who moved here because of love. The went to the kitchen and whipped us up a delicious complimentary dessert that his grandmother used to make. Prices for dinner range in the mid teens. Lunch menu is small but you can order anything from the dinner menu on the back. They will have a Sunday brunch buffet in two weeks.
Excellent food! Wife had chicken pucatta I had spaghetti meatballs. Both were great tasting and good portion of food. Complimentary rolls with marinara were a great addition. Caprese salad was excellent. Service was good but not 5 stars. Ate outside. Nice night. Tables are uneven but it was ok Will definitely go back. Not sure why anyone would want Olive Garden with this nice restaurant here.
We started with the calamari, perfect! The marinara sauce is wonderful. I had the Caesar salad again beat expectations. My friends House salad met expectations. The lasagne was perhaps the best lasagne I ever had in the states. My friend had the cheese ravioli slightly salty but excellent the service was outstanding. We will be back!

I can't remember having ever been here before. I was craving a chicken Caesar salad, and thought for sure a chicken joint would have, but I found out pretty quickly they don't offer one. However, the cashier recommended a Market Salad and I'm so glad he did! Haven't had fresh fruit like that and salad in... Forever? So fresh. Loved it!
The woman working the day I went in was rude and in a hurry. The food was great and prepared in a timely manner. Most other times I have went in the people have been much nicer.
ALWAYS so nice and caring, left my purse here once, 200 dollars in it, I got it back a few days later with everything in it. Always greeted with a smile and the food is always delicious.

Reviews:
The food is always very good and I always order for delivery. It is always extremely fast to get to my home. The drivers are very professional despite the weather being that they are busy when it rains. I alway try to tip the best I can for them. This is my favorite location
Being too busy at work led me to place my order. I wanted to try the Brooklyn Style Pizza, but it doesn't come any smaller than a large. So, I shared! I ordered a Brooklyn Style with Pepperoni, Mushroom, Salami, Bacon, Provolone and Shredded Parm cheese. I ordered it from my phone and was fascinated by the online tracker. It arrived quite fast and they delivery boy was very pleasant. (too bad that they don't get the delivery fee and you have to tip extra for them to get it) WOW! I shared this pizza with three other people and everyone (myself included) were amazed at how tasty and hot this pizza was! It was in foldable slices and the toppings were loaded up clear to the end of the crust! Kicked Papa John's butt! I wish they had locations were you could go with friends on your way to or from someplace and kick it at a table with some beer or coctails and some live T.V.

Comfy Cow

109 E Market St
New Albany, 47150
Reviews:
This weekend was my first time in any Comfy Cow location, and I went twice because it is really good. OK, flavors. You don't get standard, run of the mill flavors like vanilla and chocolate. No, you get to try out burbon ball and chocolate with cayenne and cinammon. I dove into Prezel Logic (with peanut butter chips and chocolate-covered pretzels) as well as Cow Tracks and really liked them both. Each had a smooth, creamy flavor that was indicative of higher quality ingredients and handmade churning. Personally, I didn't think the prices were all that high. $3.xx for a scoop on a sugar cone isn't too bad. Three of us indulged for just over $10. That seems on par with other places in town of similar fare. The staff was friendly and helpful, offering tastes of anything you wanted to try. The old building shares a similar look that is becoming common downtown with exposed brick, tall windows, wrought iron and a cleaned-up, industrial chic. Outdoor seating is available both in front and back. Parking is simple and convenient. The music selection was a bit strange (lots of late 90's and earlly 00's pop and rock), particularly given some of the nostalgia (think 50's and 60's) on the walls. I'll definitely be back!
Out of all the dessert shops in the area, this is my favorite. Always fast and friendly service as you try all the flavors you need until you find that perfect one for the day. It doesn't hurt that the ice cream is some of the best around. Totally worth trying if you've never had it.
Comfy cow is the place for ice cream. It has hand dipped only...and their seasonal flavors are always fun. My personal favorite non-seasonal flavor is simply southern which has a nice pecan and bourbon flavor. The people that work there are always friendly. We stop here almost once a week. It's convenient too...right off the bridge in downtown New Albany!

Reviews:
Excellent Grits, I wasn't as big of a fan of the Fried Chicken but, I'm sure some of the other items on the menu will be perfect. Will go back and amend this review if needed.
I got the lettuce wedge, which was good but for seven dollars I expect it to be ice cold not lukewarm. The dressing, blue cheese, bacon, and tomatoes were good. I would order it again and hope that it came out cold next time. I ordered the short rib Ragu for my entree. It was very good I would definitely recommend it. They have a good offering of bourbon and craft beers.
The frites are amazing. So is the house made ginger ale. I Will be frequenting this establishment:

Toast on Market

141 E Market St
New Albany, 47150
Reviews:
Good food. Nice setting and the staff were very gracious. Recommended.
I always get so excited when I get to try a new breakfast place in the area. I've been to Toast a couple of times. The wait is always reasonable (we never wait for more than 15 or 20 minutes, even during busy weekend brunch times), and the ambiance is warm and inviting, but the food is lackluster. During my first visit here I had an omelet. It was somewhat forgettable, so much so that I don't remember which I had. The coffee is good and strong, and you never have to worry about an empty cup. They even ask if you want a cup to take on-the-go as you get your bill. After this first time of being less than impressed, I thought I'd give the restaurant another try before writing a review. My second visit was not better. I ordered the Steak and Eggs. The eggs were perfectly cooked (over easy), but the steak was bland and limp. Atop the steak was a tomato AND raisin chutney. I wish the menu had stated that there would be raisins in the chutney; I realize that chutneys typically have a sweet component (dried fruits, peels), but I wasn't happy to see it all over my steak. The toast that accompanied the meal had no butter; the waitress didn't appear until she presented us with the bill, so I had to flag down the hostess when she brought another party back to be seated. By then, my toast was cold, and I was picking at my raisins in frustration. The one item I did love was the Hashbrown Casserole. This really isn't your normal hashbrown or breakfast potato side. It's a creamy, cheesy dollop that they plate directly from a tiny teacup. It's perfectly seasoned and, sadly, is the only thing that saves this dish from being just "bleh." I know that Toast has some amazing reviews. I may try them once more to see if I see the same things. Perhaps having been to so many better local places that serve a mind-blowing breakfast, I just cannot love this place. But, for now, this place is a blip in my memory of food, and sadly, not worth saving memory space.
I've been here twice and really haven't been impressed either time. The food is really nothing special - very ordinary. I'm not sure why it's so hyped up. Same with the service - it's fine, I didn't have any problems, but it's nothing exemplary. I've had a breakfast sandwich and a South of the Border omelette. My breakfast sandwich had some kind of sprouts on it that were not mentioned in the menu that gave it kind of a funky taste, combined with the vinaigrette - just gave the whole sandwich a very acidic, vinegary taste - just not what I imagine a breakfast sandwich to be like. The omelette was alright, the salsa on it seemed like canned salsa which was a big turnoff. Maybe it wasn't, but it sure seemed like it was. The hash brown casserole was pretty bland, i feel like chains such as Craker Barrel have a better hash brown casserole/potato side. This place gets pretty busy on Saturday morning when the farmers market is going on, but that should certainly not be a reason why the quality should suffer. There are better options around and even if you live in southern Indiana, I feel like it's worth venturing into Louisville for a more satisfying breakfast.

Tan Thai Restaurant

4510 Charlestown Rd Ste 100
New Albany, 47150
Reviews:
Mr. J and I recently discovered this restaurant in Southern Indiana. I must say I'm already hooked on their dishes. My favorite was the Pad Thai dish with level 3 hotness. It is my new fav! I love that they grow most of their vegetables and chili peppers that they use in their dishes. The sweet tea is a must;) Every dish our family ordered was delicious. We will be back and very soon. ~Mrs. J
This place is a Thai food juggernaut. Every menu item I've tried has been 5/5. The smooth jazz elevator music CD played on repeat sets the mood just right to open your tastebuds up for the upcoming mastication. Massuma curry and Pad Thai are as good as they come. Also the Thai tea is the best you'll ever have. The heat level runs from 1-3. Beware of level 3. It's not bad going in but later you will pay. The lady that runs the place is such a sweetheart too. She runs the front and the husband runs the back. It seems they're the only 2 that work here. Service can take a few minutes when it gets busy, but be patient. It's worth it.
Drove past this place countless amount of times.. Was told by that he thought it was best restaurant in New Albany so I gave it a shot. Wow! Best Pad Thai I've ever had and it's not even close.

New Albanian Bank Street Brewery

415 Bank St
New Albany, 47150
Reviews:
The New Albanian on Bank Street is one of my favorite watering holes located north of Louisville. They currently have 17 craft beers on tap so at least one of them has got to make you go, "Ahhhh....".
While I miss the great food they used to have, I still love frequenting this place. Great beer, and now they have Taco Punk offered Thur-Sat. The bartenders are knowledgeable and witty. It's my favorite place for my friends and I to grab a beer, or for me to come out and write.
I appreciate Bank Street Brewery as a restaurant as well as a proponent of New Albany's downtown. This location and its owner have been fairly instrumental in shaping the way that the area has undergone a renaissance as of late. First, the restaurant. The drinks are excellent. Along with the full selection of New Albanian craft brews (which I'll put against anything in the region), Bank Street offers a full bar for cocktails. If you ever get the opportunity to hear Roger, the owner, discuss what goes into brewing, take it. It is fascinating. The food is very good. I don't think I'd throw around words like "amazing" or "phenomenal," but it is good. Bank Street doesn't offer pizza like its sister location, but treads more on the entree side of the ledger. I typically get the Croque Madame and fries. If you get fries, try the lavender oil. Deceptively good. The restaurant layout is convertible depending on the season. There is, of course, the main bar/seating area which can be opened up to the front patio seating (which allows dogs) in warmer months. The large windows at the back look onto the brewing equipment and copper lines, letting you know where your beer came from. There is also "The Reading Room" with plush couches and shorter tables which give a more laid back environment. This area opens up (in warmer times) to the side patio with even more seating. The patio area also plays host to live music, Fringe Fest, during New Albany's Harvest Homecoming. You will probably spot the New Albanian logo at local events. Be sure to stop by and grab one of the best beers in the area and support local brewing and a mainstay of the downtown resurgence.

Habana Blues

Reviews:
Absolutely delish. Started with the plantain chips and guac and the goat cheese stuffed, bacon wrapped dates. YES PLEASE! I like that they have the smaller portions (duh tapas restaurant) but I really didn't want the huge entree after such great starters. I got the half portion of the melt in your mouth steak and whipped potatoes with the blue cheese sauce on top. (Cue heart attack!) I left feeling very happy. Only downside is that they don't have a wheelbarrow to roll you out of there.

Wow. Who would have guessed this little gem existed in New Albany. No.. Not wow. More like Holy cow! After stopping at a nearby winery, my handy dandy little Yelp app rated this the highest restaurant in the area. Totally agree. Located in an old building that was once a hotel, Habana Blues is a tapas style Cuban restaurant with hearty sandwiches that you'll be doing good to finish. The el cubano looked delicious, as did everything else that my party of 6 tasted. If only we had room for the coconut flan...
