Kingfish Restaurant on 6th Street Downtown Louisville where the Muhammed Ali Museum now is located. I miss the steamboat shape this restaurant had back in the 1970's when I worked there. It was incredibly busy as people from Indiana flocked from across the river on Friday and Saturday night and now it is ironic that it is located on the other side of the river in Jeffersonville, Indiana.


I also want to send prayers out for Muhammed Ali who is in critical condition.

I miss Kingfish there too. My parents and I would go there to eat as a kid. Brings back memories. I also hope Ali will be okay.

I remember Dipper Dan Ice Cream located at 3rd. Street, Buddy's Bakery On 18th street, Davis Doughnuts on 4th Street I believe, Iroquois Bakery in the 3rd. Street Shopping Center. Levy Brothers downtown. Hazelwood Dairy on Taylor Blvd. Fentress bait and Tackle near Churchill Downs, HR Fish and Chips on 7th Street, Thornberry's Bakery on 3rd street.

Nope~! The Colonade I went to as a kid and that was a cafeteria-style restaurant. This was more of a fast food/healthy food restaurant. The one on 4th street was on the corner of 4th and Walnut, opposite side of Stewart's or before you get to Stewart's but the opposite side on the corner. The one in St. Matthews was were Chik place is.

Thanks for remembering Bob Brady Appliances! He was my father. His first store was in the West end; the 2nd was at Dixie where the Watterson on ramp was built.

A bit of trivia...his first store advertised on billboards, with a painting of his face. People always said his eyes on the billboard followed them. Few know that Cassius Clay Sr. painted the billboard.

My father also served in the army in World War II with the 755th field artillery battalion, as a Tech 4 (basically a Sergeant). He was attached to the 101st Airborne and fought in the Battle of the Bulge where they were surrounded by the Germans in Bastogne, eventually relieved by Patton.

Thanks again,
Kelly Brady
