Great place to spend a couple of hours eating after driving through a wonderful landscape defined by rolling hills, and the typical fences of horse farms that characterize this part of Kentucky, a few miles northeast of Lexington.

Been here several times, and always enjoy the whole experience. Driving to this place is a scenic adventure into Kentucky Horse Country. Windy Corner in right in the middle of horse farms. The building is rustic, down home, and cozy. The food is so good. The whole experience is a high. We always take out of towers here for dinner... More

The atmosphere here is local, comfortable. But the food is FANTASTIC. So unexpected. The artichoke fritters are a dish that must be sampled. We went twice, the second time close to closing time and we were never made to feel rushed but were welcomed and chatted with by the whole staff. It's also a little gift shop for some local... More

We are regulars at Windy, food is good but a bit on the pricey side. Baked goods are delicious. If you visit during busy times expect to wait.

We had variety of foods here. To start the appetizers, fried pickles were super, and chicken fingers were the best the 5 of us have ever had, I could have ate 3 orders, no problem. I'll be back for that alone. Meals - Double Bacon burger was more than a mouthful, very tasty, bacon was very good. Fried catfish poboy... More

we have been eating here for many years and never a bad meal. tonight the salmon was cooked perfectly, the lovely lemon oregano dressing made the fresh greens sing, and as usual we ran into friends we hadnt seen in a while and had a great time. this is central Kentucky at its best.

Great food and desserts! I had the fried oysters and they were very fresh and flavorful. The owner rocks. He saw us three days later at his other restaurant which is connected with West 6th bar (which is a great bar/brewery) and he remembered our names. How awesome is that. Would highly recommend you take a trip to windy corner... More

It's hard to say which is better, the scenery or the food. The restaurant is located in an historic building and the inside is decorated like an old fashioned general store.
