I've always enjoyed the food here, although the prices are moderate to high. The building has been there for a long time -- since the 1980's or earlier. It isn't really run down but could use some work. A few of their staff members have worked there for 25+ years, which says the company must treat them well.

the staff here was so personable and friendly and to top it off, the food was great and didn't take long at all. I was a little skeptical because it was very busy, but was very surprised at how fast we were served.

We had called ahead and tried to make reservations but was told they do not accept reservation, but if we arrived before 6:30 PM there should be no trouble getting in. When our party of 7 adults arrived at 6:10 there were several empty booths that we could have our choice of, but we wanted a table so everyone could sit together, & were told it would be about a 20 minutes, and we were willing to wait. However on two occasions we witnessed the Hostess sitting people that had arrived later than others, and in one case the hostess hugged the person and made personal conversation, so it was evident she knew this person. After a 40 minute wait I asked the greeter how much longer it would be, before our table was ready & was told they were cleaning it now, & we would be seated as soon as it was ready. Just minutes after that, I overheard the Hostess that had sat her friend before others, & the greeter scheduling the seating, having a disagreement over the table we had been promised and waiting for. The greeter said to the hostess why did you do that , the party of 7 is supposed to go to that table; the Hostess said the party of 10 is larger and I am seating them, and promptly motioned for the party of 10 to follow her, and sat them at the table we had been waiting 40 minutes for!!! The people that she sat ahead of us had been no where in site when we arrived,nor had they been outside the two times that a member of our party went outside during the 40 minute wait! Immediately I said to the greeter, “You just gave our table away didn't you?” It was evident she was scrambling to find something else, she quickly asked "would it be ok if we sit a chair at the end of the table", me thinking we were going to be seated at a table because we had told them from the beginning we did not want a booth, and the reason we had waited for seating, said it would be fine to put a chair at the end of the table. We followed the person seating us............... strait to a booth!!!!!! When we asked to see a manager about our experience, the very, very, young woman that was brought to us, was very rude and unprofessional, we left the establishment after a 40 minute wait and 5 minute, going nowhere conversation with a juvenile, immature, disrespectful manager, not capable of handing her job and clearly in a position too big for her. Our family will never attempt to eat here again. Stay away from this place unless you are a personal friend or relative of the Hostess or Manager,or you will be treated poorly. These people need to wake up and realize, hard earned money can be spent in an array of nice places in Lexington, and we will always take ours elsewhere from this point on!!!!!!
