We're surprised by the building, expected an old "southern inn", and it was in just an old building in historic town. BUT don't be put off by that. The food was excellent. I do not like or eat desserts, but they make these in house and the 3 of us tried 2 different desserts and they were "to die for",... More

We were looking for a spot for lunch and stopped at the Southern Inn Restaurant, where I ordered a salad and my husband ordered a chicken sandwich. The 'homemade bread' that was brought to the table before our meal was really a thinly sliced baguette, and was stale. I was afraid that this was a sign of the kind of... More

I am sorry to be so negative, but the food was terrible. The Calamari was not cooked and tatesless, the salad dressing mostly water, the portions of salad skimpy, and the service slow. After having dinner with my son and NOT ordering any alcoholic beverages, the cost was $74 without the tip. Don't bother going there, Henry

Ordered the brisket. Old and tired. One piece fatty, the other dried out. They appear to be rushed and somewhat and somewhat uncoordinated.

My husband and I were looking for a spot to eat dinner in Lexington, saw the large neon sign and walked in. The place was much nicer than I expected from the sign. Our server was excellent and courtieus. We had the spinach artichoke dip, which was very good BUT it was still very cold in the center. He did... More

When ever we am in Lexington, the Southern Inn is our go to restaurant for dinner. It was/is chef owned and has a charming old time ambience. The prices are not over the top and We have never had poor service.
