We had the special burger and since they had run out of the grouper taco, a warm spinach salad with shrimp, which were delicious! The decor of this restaurant was quite unique in its understated frilly elegance, good service. We plan to come back.

Midway is a unique town and The Heirloom sits along its main street. Our dinner was delicious. Our entrees included duck, roasted grouper, and beef tenderloin. Service was friendly and efficient. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Went with my family(6 total), the seating was mostly booths with a few tables inside and a few outside. It was still roomy even though there was 6 at our table. I ordered the fish n chips which were a bit soggy on the bottom side, but were still delicious. The fries were little straw fries that were over cooked... More

Following our tour at Old Friends Retired Horse Farm, Heirloom was recommended to us. There are quite a few interesting places to eat in Midway but I am glad we selected Heirloom. The menu has plenty to offer and the special of the day was excellent. The Autumn Bisque was wonderful. Many assorted local beers and wines. Lovely feeling inside... More

We visited as a group of 5 and shared two of the 12 course degustation menus. It was great to get so many different flavours. So,e dishes were great, others missed the mark but the variety was fantastic and we didn't go hungry.

Heirloom is truly a standout among its peers. The flavor profiles of the dishes are so obviously crafted with loving devotion. Everything is always cooked perfectly. Service is excellent. They achieve a level of depth and complexity in flavor that you can't hardly find elsewhere. Do yourself a favor and go to heirloom. Repeatedly.

It's hard to find a soothing palette of beige and cream, much less one whose walls are adorned with whimsical, painting-size "cutouts"; whose backlit bar is simultaneously sleek, warm and inviting; and whose food doesn't allow the design to do all the work. But there's one place. Heirloom is Lexington's small-town neighbor with seriously sophisticated cuisine.
Owned by chef Mark Wombles and his father, Henry, the restaurant came out of the gate in 2006 to acclaim. Its standard has remained high, with only occasional slips. Now, however, with Nicolas True blood — formerly of The Mansion at Griffin Gate — as chef de cuisine, Mark Wombles' original vision of using fresh, local ingredients to create Kentucky dishes with a global sensibility and a hint of California influence is being met and exalted.
