All my wife and I can say is a great little place in the rolling hills of Kentucky. We were in Lexington for a week on business and visited the market twice it was that good. If you traveling through Lexington it is an easy 15 min drive off the I-75 and to add you will see beautiful horse farms... More

Windy Corner represents one of the things I love about Lexington. You take a beautiful drive 10 minutes out of the city to a restaurant with an unremarkable look, you go in and get a great meal, and you observe (and overhear) fellow diners who come from all different walks of life. Our latest trip to Windy Corner was on... More

This is our go to place in Lexington. We always find great food here every time. Nightly specilas are great, particularly Wednesday shrimp etouffee, Friday fish special (amber jack for this week) and Saturday ribs. This week's soup of the day, zucchini and tomato soup, is fantastic. Salad greens are of best quality, love the salmon (steamed) salad. Also like... More

My family and I stopped in on a Sunday morning for breakfast. The place is a cross between hometown diner and general store. It sets in the middle of horse farms, beautiful scenery. It was busy on this morning so it took a little bit to get our food. We all had something different and everything was great. Make this... More

OK, so we are from metro-Detroit, Michigan. Horses around there are pretty rare, except for the occasional parade horse, or mounted patrol horse for crowd control at big events. It was joy to listen to the occasional whinny of a horse or two from the adjacent horse farms as we ate our meal meal. We loved the fresh herb and... More

Great spot in the middle of the bluegrass pastures. Horses across the street. If you sit outside you feel like you're at your own horse ranch enjoying a break from tending your own horses. Food is good and atmosphere is super. The real Kentucky experience with the locals. We seriously started and ended our days here getting one of their... More

That being said, we liked the place. We really weren't expecting much considering it was basically an old grocery made into a restaurant with fast food service (but not fast food). We did have to stand in line a while to order, but that was OK, because that gave a table time to open up. We also needed the time... More

Great place to come with a group, motorcycle group for us, riding always includes somewhere great to eat!, that's part of the fun. So, it's a wonderful afternoon stop to enjoy some great food, I love the menu as it has a wide range, salads to hot browns, seafood, bbq, burgers, and they are all good!
