We stumbled across this restaurant by accident and we're so glad we did! The food was fabulous and the wait staff was awesome. We ate in the bar and the 2 women working that area worked as a team. tending the bar and waiting on...the tables. They were efficient, very friendly, and truly illustrated teamwork. We also had a chance to visit with the owner and he was gracious and clearly, a committed local local restaurant owner. As a final bonus, there is a great beer bottle and can collection (the owner's) displayed on the shelves in the bar which brought back many great memories of beer I used to drink in my younger years (including Buckhorn, $3.99 a case back in the late 1970s). If you're looking for an unpretentious, friendly, locally-owned restaurant with great food, Sutton's is the place for you!More

Food was good tasting with plentiful serving sizes. Fried Shrimp with rice pilaff & snap peas was at a good price for amount served. Chicken Gorgonzola Penne was more than enough also for one person.

I visited for the first time with my wife on Valentines Day weekend. The calamari had a nice breading and came with a lobster sauce. I would highly recommend it. We ordered the two most popular entrees. The Fra Diavolo had fresh scallops and well...seasoned shrimp. The Manzo Pasta had slices of tender steak cooked medium along with onions. Both were fantastic but we liked the Manzo the best. For dessert we had the bread pudding and chocolate mouse. Both were unbelievably good. The only disappointment was the coffee. I would have expected better coffee from an Italian restaurant. I wouldn’t hesitate to dine here again.More

Too loaded with red pepper to be edible. Ruined a normally good entree. Tried picking a few pieces of penne out and didn't complain. Waitress noticed I didn't eat it and insisted I choose a replacement. Manager came over and accused me of eating too...much of it. Refused to replace it. Told me I should have asked for a replacement sooner. Like that would have made a difference? Interesting approach to customer service.More

I chose Sutton's Restaurant for my wife's and my 49th wedding anniversary dinner because of the high ratings and reviews that others had left. I was disappointed. Upon entering, I noticed that both glass entry doors were heavily smudged with handprints. Inside the door was...a double stack of perhaps eight cases of cutlery. The floor appeared dusty as if it had not been recently mopped. The hostess was very friendly and engaged in cheerful and humorous banter. Our waitress, Terra, came to us quickly and was engaging, knowledgeable and friendly. We found that she was from our neck-of-the-woods. I ordered spaghetti with meat balls and my wife ordered baked spaghetti with one meat ball. I warned her against more because my experience with other places is to receive huge, tasty meatballs. I was disappointed. Our meatballs were small, tough to chew and not as tasty as I had hoped. My meat sauce seemed a little greasy and not as fresh-tasting as I expected. My wife, however, was satisfied with the flavor of her spaghetti sauce and her meatball, although disappointed about the small size. While there, I watched two employees have a testy exchange right in front of us with another cluster of four standing around a table behind us, talking quietly but with looks that I took to be discontentment on their faces. They did not appear to be happy at all. With the exception of the two wonderful employees with whom I reacted, the whole experience was a let-down for me, and I apologized to my wife for the dinner choice.More

12/20/20 I came here with my date for dinner after church, as we both haven’t been to this restaurant in a while, and wanted to try something different. Upon entering, you must wear a mask as the staff is wearing theirs, and once seated you...can take it off. I’ll never understand this method but they’re complying with the covid rules. There’s no dividers but they do space you out far from any other tables. I ordered the mussels appetizer as my main dish, and my date had their French onion soup. The food was good, but not enough for me to come running back. I’ve spoiled my taste buds and had better quality mussels elsewhere. Also, my date didn’t enjoy the French onion soup, was disappointed in the bland taste. Overall, the experience was good, our waitress took great care of us and we took care of her. Unfortunately, we were told the bar was open until 11pm but it actually closed @10 pm with the entire restaurant. I’ll come back here again to try one of their many pasta dishes, whenever I’ll be in the mood for a carb filled meal.More

We went to Sutton's during a football weekend trip and truly enjoyed our experience. My husband and I were actually on a diet, so we split a meal (the pork chops), and we had more than enough food to fill up both of us. And...it was quite delicious! My sister and her husband were with us, and each thoroughly enjoyed their meals (quite plentiful and delicious) as well. The atmosphere was casual and cozy, and the service was wonderful! We will come again the next time we are in Lexington!More
