Southern Inspired 'Better Than Bar Food'

Our Chefs rock just as much as our musicians! 

We open Fri-Sun at 11 AM, Mon-Thurs at 4 PM serving up made from scratch, southern inspired 'Better Than Bar Food' in a fun, casual environment, a full bar selection and live music all day & night long!  Full Menu

What does 'Better Than Bar Food' mean?  - We take a lot of pride in our kitchen! We make our own sauces & marinades in house and prominently feature made from scratch items throughout our entire menu.  Simply put, the menu might resemble bar food, but we take no shortcuts so it's 'Better Than Bar Food'

How is it 'Southern Inspired'? - Much like our music, we don't like to stick to just one genre or style, but we do draw our influences from our southern roots as demonstrated by our Nashville Hot Chicken, Dixie Biscuits, Voodo Grinder & more delicious recipes! 

What are some popular menu items? - We enjoy it all of course, but people love our Chicken Tenders because they're hand cut & hand breaded fresh every day with our own special seasoning! We also feature the best wings in Louisville including our unique Chili-Brown Wings with our custom brown sugar and chili dry rub.  Our Nashville Hot Chicken, a la carte Tacos & our appetizer selections are also hugely popular, but come try us out and find your own favorite! 

Where are you located? - Tin Roof is located in the St Matthews neighborhood of Louisville surrounded by other bars & restaurants  3921 Shelbyville Road

When is your live music? - While our food alone is worth the visit, combining it with events & entertainment is even better! Check out our full calendar of events here
