We eat here often, they have very good food. Our favorite sandwich is the monte cristo. The onion rings are the best we have ever eaten. Usually have good desserts. Service can be a little slow at times, and they are closed on Monday and Tuesdays I think. Midway is really neat place to visit, like going back in time.

I think if you are visiting Kentucky for the derby you must make a stop in Midway and Darlin Jeans. The food is good, the staff is welcoming and the atmosphere is Kentucky. This place will remind you of home and the town is something special. Eat, Relax and Enjoy this wonderful small town restaurant.

One of the best sandwiches I've had but can't remember the name! Basically, it was roast beef, two cheeses, on a good roll. Very tasty. I had the loaded baked potato casserole as a side. Wonderful! My wife had the chicken salad which she said was good. Everyone was friendly, clean....including the restroom. Yeah, they do need to address the... More

Midway has done awesome eating establishments. This is one of the best. Everything is good. Enjoy a nice drink while sitting on the covered porch. The staff are very nice, food is good and value is tops.

We needed a stop on our way home and Darlin Jean's had great reveiws. I will warn anybody to check their hours, as they do close from 2-5 daily. The staff in the kichen were LOUD, they seemed much more interested in each other than waiting on clients. I had the hot brown which seems to be a popular item... More

We were excited to try Darlin Jeans' after reading the reviews. There were 3-4 alternatives in Midway as we drove from Indianapolis to Tennessee. Our first reaction was as we were seated... the "mildew", "mold", "musty" smell was overwhelming. My wife used their restroom facilities and found them their cleanliness condition to be less than satisfactory. As for everything else:... More

We arrived for an early dinner and sat outside on the deck under an umbrella. Food was really good - we had the onion rings which were served with an awesome sauce; I had the firecracker shrimp salad (yummm -- it is a take on Bang Bang Shrimp from Bone Fish Grill) and my husband had a burger which he...

We choose the Apple Cobbler as it opens at 5 for dinner. Being a Thursday night, there was not much of a crowd. We sat by one of the glass doors, our server was very nice but could have done a better job. When I told her there was a fly or gnat in my wine glass, she looked and... More

We decided on a whim to do Midway for lunch. It was a beautiful drive from Lexington. My friend recommended Darlin Jeans as he had eaten there on several occasions. We were pleasantly greeted and seated immediately even though they were very busy. My friend had the Turkey Reuben and I had the Debri (sirloin on a hoagie bun). Both... More
