Was recommended this restaurant for brunch and since Saturday and Sunday was already fully booked, got reservations for Friday morning. Needed to get in and out since we had tickets for the final day of racing at Keeneland. Were told that the portions were large,...so did not order appetizers. Ordered an item that is not normally found on a brunch menu, the fried soft shell crab Benedict. Two biscuits, topped with tomatoes and spinach, then covered with a large whole soft shell crab, and a third layer of two medium over easy eggs. Lot of different flavors going on here, but were all good and worked well together. As warned, it was a lot of food, more than I could eat. Service was outstanding and the prices reasonable. Very good location with ample free parking on the side. Good ambiance within, and would like to return to sample some of their other options.More

This was the second time we have visited Lexington and both times we went to Carson's for dinner. Very cool modern, industrial feel. Many of the locals even recommend this restaurant. The food, service, and atmosphere are all excellent. Very popular place to booking a...reservation is recommended.More

The Brunch at Carson’s is yummy. My Wife and I love going to Carson’s on the weekend. Today I ordered Carson’s select breakfast consisting of scrambled eggs, crispy bacon and biscuits and gravy! The secret is crispy bacon! My Wife ordered the savory Chicken and...Waffles. Which was very yummy! Kyle Zimmerman the GM who is always working leads by example thus making Carson’s the place to be for Weekend Brunch. EnjoyMore

Went to brunch while visiting our son. It was amazing from start to finish. I ordered the scramble bowl and without a doubt it was the best breakfast I've ever had. Service was excellent. We enjoyed the music, food, service and atmosphere. Definitely going back!

Had a wonderful night there. Had the Brie appetizer and pretzel with spicy mustard. Both were very good. Main meals were filet dinner, filet medallions and sweet and spicy ribs. All were excellent. Even though in the heart of bourbon country, I tried the scotch...flight and it was a nice sampling. Definitely would return. Service was very good.More

I walked into this restaurant and was immersed in the cool vibe of the years of probation with a touch of glits. The waiter was attentive, knowledgeable in menu, and made some delicious drinks. You need to have an Old Fashion due to the large...amounts of bourbon available. We started with the melted goat cheese, so good. Then came the scallops and salmon. The plating was beautiful and everything was amazing. I enjoyed every mouthful and had to close my eyes to be consumed by the flavors. Just straight up yummy!!!More

I was invited by a business friend with whom I had by trying to have dinner with for several months. We had a delightful server, Lauren, who took great care of us as we were at Carson's for over four hours. We split an appetizer...version of the ribs, which were superb, and I had the shrimp and grits for dinner. I look forward to returning!More

Food and service were both excellent. Food was probably the best I have had in a while. There was lots of flavor in everything!

I am a bit delayed in writing this review from a few months ago, but the photos are so outstanding, I just had to write a review. This was a celebratory lunch with one of my friends after being very cautious with COVID. We started...with their Bloody Mary's - mine spicy. Not only were they an adventure with all the goodies on top - they were excellent. My favorite part of the meal was sharing the baked brie. Excellent appetizer - grilled brie with chutney, nuts, and bread. I had the soft shell crab salad. It was good. If I were to split hairs, I would have asked for it to be dressed a little lighter. We shared the bread pudding. In my opinion - you could share this with 4 people, it is such a generous portion. Wonderful good and service, can't wait to go back!More
