This deserves a 3.5 rating, but Trip Advisor does not give you that option. This was recommended to our large group as a dining option in Lexington that would satisfy all the various tastes. We arrived on Saturday (May 23) without a reservation and said our party could be anywhere from 10-15 people. Obviously on a busy Saturday night around... More

The atmosphere can be a little dull but if your looking for a good breakfast or a comforting meal give it a try. The hot brown here is worth trying for sure.

I did not like the place, it is very loud, very crowded and the food was not that good and over priced. But this is how sports bars are and have always been, so I should had known, but I thought I would try the place. Not going to be going back, now if I liked to get drunk and... More

Unfortunately, I felt compelled to warn others of the toxic atmosphere. i waited and let some time pass so that I could be a bit more objective. This place was highly recommended for it's breakfast menu. My family and a few travel companions eventually arrived in the afternoon and I ordered a classic breakfast dish of eggs, hashbrowns, bacon and... More

Though not a sports buff, we go to Winchell's for the food ! Anything we've ever had reeked of great flavor and homemade goodness ! I hate to wax on regarding this place, but in the ten plus years of eating there, never a disappointment !

Winchell's looks like your typical sports bar located in a strip mall, but what makes it stand out is the service. The staff was really nice and service was quick and efficient. I ordered their Hot Brown and it was large enough to be split between to people. I recommend this place for it's casual atmosphere and good food.

We went here one evening just to try the Kentucky hot brown sandwich. It was tasty but rather huge. I understand they have a lunch size portion available which would've been a better idea. The beer was inexpensive but the wine was a bit pricey. The atmosphere was typical sports pub.

We recently ate at Winchell's for dinner and had yet another great experience. The servers are awesome and enthusiastic, and the food is unique. The menu is large with a lot of locally-sourced food, and the bar is lively without being obnoxious like some places can be. You can tell my the typical wait times that it is popular and... More

No apps and dinners ranged from oysters, fish, soup and sandwiches. Everything was very good , but the white bean soup- which was lacking in taste .No desserts , everyone was... More

It puzzles me when they serve chopped bar-b-que plate and don't serve some type of bread with it. It was very good, but you didn't have anything to help with the sauce. Lots of regular locals seem to be there. I would go back and try it again.
