Only two of the eight ladies had never visited Darlin Jean's Apple Cobbler Cafe which was part of a shopping trip to Midway. We had called ahead and out table was ready. Lindy introduced herself as our waitress and she was super. She anticipated our needs/requests and gave great advice about the menu. We ordered several different items and 100%... More

Nice laid back place with some great Kentucky comfort food! The Vidalia Chicken is a grilled chicken breast with a delightful Vidalia sauce; give it a try! The burger is the best around if you are in a casual mood!

So we got to the restaurant at 8:30 not knowing they close at 9pm. It's 95 degrees outside and it's 85 in the restaurant. They seat us. We immediately realize it's almost closing time and offer to leave. They were fantastic and wouldn't let us leave. They turned on fans for us and brought out amazing food. The Hot Brown... More

I was on assignment in Midway and decided to catch lunch in town. I asked for recommendations by the locals and 3 out of 4 recommended Darlin Jean’s Apple Cobbler Café. The building itself is interesting and it is a family owned business (I think 3rd generation now operates the restaurant). The staff was very friendly and helped me decide... More

Excellent food, I highly suggest the bagel melt and onion ring appetizer, cold Coke products, quaint ambiance, good service, decent value for a small, non-chain restaurant. We were very impressed.

Enjoyed dinner here with friends. Everyone ordered something different and all were happy. Their menu is simple but very good. They have fried pickle spears were an excellent Kentucky delicacy. A must try. The staff are friendly. They have outside seating which was great on a nice summer evening.

My husband, along with my daughter and her boyfriend, met another couple for the June Midsummer Night in Midway, Kentucky. The festivities were okay. An art gallery we wandered into was pretty neat as was one of the antique shops. We were hungry and decided to get a bite to eat and decided to give Darlin Jean a try. The... More

We have eaten here a number of times over the years. Never disappointed. Had ten of us last night for father's day. Great food and service. One of our favorite places in Midway.
