I ordered the Greek salad with Chicken. The chicken was great. There was hardly any lettuce in the salad , all cucumber and tomato and feta. My wife had the chicken sandwich and loved it. Parking in Lexington is a real challenge.

This is a great place to eat anytime BUT Sunday Brunch is a real treat and a bargain to boot! All the lovely things about eating out--white tablecloths, proper and friendly servers, AND Eggs Benedict than are delicious. Never ending water and coffee (iced or hot)--just a lovely place to go with friends for a Sunday treat.

Great staff, great service, great food. Fun environment and really great evening. Good wine selection - unusual but actually each one we tried was good or great. Definitely recommend

I first went here about 4 years ago, and it was memorable for its southern hospitality and good southern food. I have kept going back, despite subsequent disappointments, but my most recent visit may be my last. We visited at about 4PM on a Saturday without a reservation, and the hostess made a show over having many early bird reservations,... More

The Southern Inn in Lexington is a consistently good experience - fast, friendly service (our server was Scarlett - very appropriate) and excellent southern cooking in a smart well decorated restaurant and bar. With Sunday brunch items at around ten dollars why would you go anywhere else? I had Shrimp and Grits with collards and the family had omelets and... More

We had dinner here on our second night in Lexington, tried on the first night but they had a 2 plus hour wait, I don't personally believe any place is worth waiting that long for, so we ate across the street at the Robert E Lee hotel. I found the menu to be very limited, I had the Reuben with... More

The food and service is very good! As much as is possible they use local meat and vegetables. This restaurant has been in Lexington for many many years and the present owners have enhanced the food and dining experience. I have dined here on many occasions.

Recommended as the best by our hotel staff, this place did not disappoint. I had a fantastic sirloin steak and my wife had the blackened chicken penne pasta. Service and food are both top notch!

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch at the Southern Inn during a recent Lexingtom visit. The design and decor are perfect for the setting. The neon sign is a nice homey touch. The welcome and service was good though it could have been a little more enthusiastic. At lunch the food is a bargain. I loved my calves liver with fabulous bacon,... More

Everything about this place was great. The meal. The service. The price. We had a reservation and were seated as soon as we arrived. The food was fresh and delicious. My wife had the fried chicken which she said was about the best she ever tasted. The service was friendly and unobtrusive. Highly recommend.
