Mixed - but potential

Well we have been several times. Every time the 'lead waitress' is barking out at staff - extremely unprofessional. We only will eat there if Emily is our waitress. Food is inconsistent in flavor. Overall, there is great potential. Staff is very disorganized though and kitchen is slow to get out... read more

I loved the former Sweet Pea Owners. They were passionate about the business and it was obvious. I am not sure what happened to have them disappear. The new owners have done some nice updates to the restaurant. I have been there twice since the new owners. Most things are the same but there is a learning curve. it doesn't... More

We recently returned to Sweet Pea's and were quite underwhelmed. We originally ate here after the Lexington BBQ festival and it was pretty good. My wife and I went to dinner and it was quite different. My wife ordered the smoked prime rib, it arrived cold and rather tough with no Au Jus, or Horseradish. I ordered the "world famous"... More

Very expensive for the poor quality food they serve. DO NOT ORDER their Shrimp and Grits (if they still have it on the menu). Shrimp was chewy at best, grits were clearly instant grits heated from the hot tap on their coffee machine.

New restaurant in Lexington, it has only been around a short time. The owners, Richard and Jennifer, are warm and inviting. It is a great place for large groups and the menu has something for everyone. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the menu items. Go and check out the newly decorated dinning room!

Was in town visiting a friend and was having lunch before heading back home. I decided to try the Luke burger. It was absolutely delicious. I am usually a pretty adventurous person when it comes to food and have no problem trying something new. This particular burger comes with a fried egg. If you like/love eggs and you've never tried...

We found this place with a coupon book. A very pleasant surprise. Great food, excellent service and a quiet crowd. I had the chicken salad that was fresh and full of chunks of the best white meat. No filler here and best of all, no onions! We will be back!

We were at the BBQ festival and was disappointed with the actual BBQ offered on the street and I love Brisket and stumble upon this restaurant. It was the bomb. Great food, awesome Brisket, great price, friendly staff. Don't bother with the festival, go here. We all had something different and delicious. Great atmosphere and I promise to return when...

I went on a Friday night with a friend. I got a steak with spinach. The spinach was fresh and it was so good. The first time I went I got shrimp and grits (this was before it reopened), and got fresh grilled asparagus. My food was awesome the atmosphere I thought was hot and smokey.
