This place was highly recommended by the cousin we were visiting, even though it was at least a 40 minute drive from their house and even farther from our hotel. It was nice to get out of the city of Lexington and see some of the rolling hills that we've heard so much about regarding Kentucky. The market itself is cute with a nice front porch and outdoor seating out front, I also believe there was a screened in back porch. There are numerous items to buy that you would find in a general store around the walls and they were fun to look at.
We got there after 7pm on a Friday night and the line was pretty much out the door to order food, in fact we were lined up on the porch and were yelled at to come in and line up along the wall. You wait in line that was inexplicably slow, order with a cashier, get your drink and then sit down. The tables were close together and it was very, very loud in there. There was a band of some sort in the back porch, which really wasn't that far from where we were sitting but we couldn't hear them even after a few tables emptied. My husband and I ordered right in front of my cousin and they waited a long time to get their food after we got ours. They also never received their appetizer though they were able to get two desserts to replace this. The food was good, my husband got the combo with shrimp and oysters and I got the grilled salmon with lemon oregano. Even heated up, my meal was very good. We did think it is a bit over priced and when I pay $15/per person I don't really like a person coming out of the kitchen screaming my name and having to get up and get my plates from them. A better idea would be the little triangle number stands that even Chuck E Cheese uses! I don't know if I'll return just because of the noise factor. Maybe in the middle of the afternoon or something it might not be too bad or maybe when it's warm enough to eat outdoors it could be better. I do like the fact they use local products but that is not enough for me when it's that noisy.
