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.

Didn't really enjoy the meal honestly. This was our first time visiting. Had the monte cristo and I didn't care for it. I didn't like the bagel it was on, it seemed really dry, and it was served with just regular jelly. Fries were hot and crispy which was a plus. Service was ok. Probably wouldn't return, just wasn't blown... More

I have been coming here since it first opened. The food is outstanding. The cobblers for dessert are even better. It's a real treat to come here for a meal. Never had anything bad.

I've been eating at this restaurant since its very first days. It has been great from the very start. The debris sandwich is simply the best. I have friends who drive from Louisville to eat the baked potato salad. Arrive ready to eat and you won't be disappointed. I cannot rate this restaurant high enough. They have been consistent from...
