Surrounded by horses

Recommended by our tour guide at the Thoroughbred Center, this was a great stop for lunch. The best part? It was right next to a paddock with a couple of mares and foals.

Perfect spot for a gorgeous Kentucky Saturday afternoon. The drive out to Windy Corner is one to roll the windows down for. You pass by horses that live in better houses than most people. I had started to question if I had driven to far into the county when I saw the cutest little Southern Eatery nestled at the corner... More

Great food in a rustic setting. Not far off the beaten path, and the scenery is postcard material -classic Central Kentucky.

It's worth the trip to Windy Corner to see the horse farms that surround it! Once there the food is delicious. I had the health salad which was delicious. Folks around me had fish baskets and burgers and the all looked good.

Great little out of the way place to eat for the family or to just get away with your love one. The food is great and the service is excellent . You may have a little wait but this should tell you this is the place to be.

What a delightful dining experience! Loved the location amongst horse farms and beautiful bluegrass. Fried shrimp po boy was excellent. Husband loved the Kentucky Colonel sandwich with fried chicken and country ham. We splurged on desserts and it was worth every extra calorie. This was such a nice treat. You place order at the counter and they bring to table... More

Just a few miles out of Lexington wonderful food awaits ! The breakfast, lunch and dinner are beyond compare. Service is not as fast as a hungry person might like- but worth the wait.. Locally sourced and well presented!

The most beautiful drive out to chef Ouida's hideaway. Order at the counter and they bring you your food to the table as it is ready. Everything is great here, and the specials are not yo be missed. Go in the summer when you can sit on the back porch. Great little market items you can pick up there as... More

This is a no frill kitchen with just good food. I like looking out the windows. We ate there in 2012 when the location seemed more remote. Since Lexington is exploding with growth it will probably be crowded out by new eateries. That's what happens when a wonderful place gets discovered.
