KY Restaurant reopens for 99th season

Count me among those who make a beeline online for seafood restaurant searches when traveling. I love fish. Any fish. And I can say that without hesitation because I honestly have NEVER eaten anything out of the water that I didn’t like.

Well, yes, it needs to be well prepared, but I’ve ticked that requirement almost every time, so don’t worry. I even like the things that make many of my friends cope. Oysters? Octopus? Bring him.

Now, I understand that I will find octopus at every seafood restaurant. And some of those “joints” are specialized for sleep; around here, most come out of a lake or a river.

GOOD SEAFOOD RESTAURANTS IN LOUISVILLE

In downtown Owensboro, there was a place called the Kingfish. My family loved it. The one in Louisville is still open and is probably a competitor to another seafood joint that has a weird tradition that just ended.

MIKE LINNIG’S IN LOUISVILLE WILL REOPEN AFTER A TWO MONTH HAS

If people raved about Mike Linnig to you like they did to me, then you might have been disappointed to see a red banner message saying “TEMPORARY CLOSED” when you searched for it in the last two months. That’s because Mike Linnig’s closes every year in November and December.

(By the way, is it just me or does that video look like it’s straight out of an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives? Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Yeah, someone needs to get a hold of Guy Fieri.)

MIKE LINNIG’S HAS BEEN SERVING SEAFOOD FOR NEARLY 100 YEARS

However, you might wonder why they would give up on the holiday season, which is probably the busiest time of the year for most restaurants. Well, because the people at Mike Linnig want to spend time with their families. And they can afford it; Mike Linnig’s is heading into its 99th season of delivering the goods to Louisville seafood fans or ANY seafood fan who happens to wander into his southwest Louisville location.

A few years ago, Mike Linnig added a new pavilion to meet the demand. It also provided more space during the outbreak of the COVID pandemic. It’s also a heated pavilion, highlighting once again how invaluable patio heaters have become to the restaurant industry.

It’s been a long time since a close friend recommended I visit Mike Linnig’s and I confess I had forgotten all about it. I’m glad it came up again in a recent conversation so I can now set reminders so I don’t forget it’s there.

Mike Linnig reopens for 99th season Jan. 26.
