Stopped in for lunch...nothing special. I had a Mushroom En croute which was mushrooms topped with 5 cheeses.( I expected mushrooms in a pastry so I guess my definition was different than the chef's).

The staff was friendly and our meals were very good. We also liked all the horse pictures on the walls.

Stayed at the Best Western Paris and went here on the suggestion of the hotel manager. What a great choice. Food was good and our server Chase was even better. He was friendly, knowledgeable and just down right pleasant.

My husband and i were just passing through Paris today on our way to see a horse for sale. What a pleasant surprise! Our waiter Josh was great. We both had a cocktail on the patio right across the street from the "World's Tallest 3 Story Building" and a couple well done Thoroughbred burgers. The burgers were just the right... More

My wife and I stopped in for a late lunch on a beautiful spring day. We had been out for a ride in the beautiful countryside. We were greeted by a most pleasant lady who seated us and took our drink orders right away. She was friendly in an honest way, and not because it was part of her job... More

My college friend (from CA) and I (from FL) met in Lexington and were touring the countryside where all the horse farms are. We ended up on the road to Paris so just went with it. Neither of us had been there in 40 years. We were hungry, so stopped at Clay's when we saw the outdoor seating. It was... More
