If you’d like to eat a healthy but delicious lunch, you can try a salad at one of these local Louisville eateries. They offer everything from traditional Caesar to greens covered with fried chicken and cheddar cheese. The best places for salad near our Louisville apartments include:

River House 

At River House, Chef John Varanese is known for his culinary innovation. He partners with local farmers to provide fresh ingredients and prepare regional cuisine with a Southern flair. For lunch, you can order the Granny Smith apple salad. Full of flavor, it features grapes, bleu cheese, toasted pumpkin seeds, and zesty greens covered in a pecan-vanilla vinaigrette. If you’re in a hurry, place an advanced order for curbside pickup. 

Jack Fry’s 

Established in 1933, Jack Fry’s quickly became a sportsman’s hangout. Founder Jack Fry loved horse racing and amateur boxing, and he used to discreetly handle bookkeeping from the back room. Today, the restaurant has a more upscale vibe. Memorabilia and photographs cover the walls, and diners enjoy their meals on tables covered with a white cloth. During your next visit, try the blue cheese salad. The perfect choice for lunch, it includes lettuce, charred spring onions, shaved radishes, applewood smoked bacon, and parsley with a pecan-vanilla bean vinaigrette. 

Selena’s at Willow Lake Tavern

It all starts with fresh ingredients at Selena’s at Willow Lake Tavern. The chefs here serve a fusion of Creole and Sicilian cuisine to “create one of Louisville’s most tasty dining adventures.” The dining room offers a relaxed experience, and the staff here always provides fast, friendly service. When it’s time to order, you can try the 1979 salad. A customer favorite, it features chopped romaine covered with Swiss cheese, ham, homemade croutons, and other toppings.

After lunch, you can go out for some gaming fun at a nearby arcade. If you’d like to become a resident of Axis on Lexington, please contact us. Our leasing team will be happy to schedule a tour and show you our apartments in Louisville, KY firsthand.
