While the taste wasn't horrible, all of the food screamed frozen. When dining out, the least an establishment could provide is food that is not pre packaged. The place was not the cleanest, and the floors look like they haven't been washed in years. The...More

But we went because of a dish we saw online on their menu. But it was no longer available. They gave us a free dessert because of the mix up. Food was ok - we both ordered the fried chicken.

I stopped in here to eat an early dinner/late lunch on a Sunday, when there wasn't much open in Lexington downtown. Summer is slow season because the universities are ghost towns. My daughter had the Fried green tomato sandwich, and she loved it. We shared...More

Our group of 5 had a very nice dinner here - the menu is quite varied, and everyone can find something they like! Very casual, a bit noisy but not loud. All dishes were excellent, and we will definitely return! Service was great!
