Restaurants near SDF & convention center

We are working at a convention this weekend & staying in a hotel near SDF. Are there any good restaurants within 15 minutes of this area? It seems like all I'm seeing is fast food & the cracker barrel? I don't need fancy, but I do need edible, LOL.
Thanks for the help!!!!

    1. The airport area is quite grim as far as food. Koreana II comes to mind and Lee's Korean is just a few minutes away. Really you can get on the Watterson Loop and go most places in town rather quickly from the airport. No need to stay in that area. Check out for the local view on restaurants. Do note that many Louisville people are notoriously cheap and will incessantly talk about how expensive restaurants are, but believe me if you are coming from a metro area of any size you will find virtually all the restaurants to be very cheap by comparison, excepting of course the national high end steak house chains.
