“Delious Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Four of us ate here the day after Thanksgiving. The food was absolutely delicious. Not sure of the name of my sandwich but it was scrumptious. I could probably make a meal on just the Truffle Oil French Fries. The place is small and crowded, may look old, but this is in a somewhat historic area. None of that takes away from the delicious food!!

“Better a few fresh desserts than a display case full of stale ones”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

I write this with some trepidation because I have had good dining experiences at Wallace Station, but we were greatly disappointed with the desserts we were served this Saturday afternoon when we stopped by for coffee and a little something sweet. The brownie cheesecake was dry as a bone and the buttermilk chess pie was also uninspired with way too much nutmeg and a hard, crumbling crust. When my Mother asked for a replacement for the brownie cheesecake, we chose a peanut butter cookie that was hard, dry and practically tasteless. Of course, there were many more dessert offerings to choose from that might have been good, but we were no longer interested. Perhaps it would be better to offer four or five fresh desserts daily than offer a whole display case of poor/mediocre/stale offerings. Also, the place is really in need of an exhaust fan. While I treasure all the panini sandwich choices, the place could also use a good exhaust fan; each time I visit, I carry the smell with me for the rest of the day. Ironically, our lunch stop at one of Wallace Station's sister restaurants, the Windy Corner Market on Bryan Station Road in Lexington, could not have been more fresh and delicious. We will give Wallace Station another chance, but will return our desserts again if they have not improved.

“Fun in the Dark”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Visited Wallace Station with friends on a rainy day. The restaurant lost power, but continued to serve patrons as able. The food was good as always, and the company even better than usual because of the element of adventure.

“Our First DDD Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

This place got mixed reviews, but we went anyway. After driving through the incredible Kentucky horse country, we arrived at a very unassuming, but very busy converted house. The November day was very warm, so we sat outside. The food was very good and generous. The service was quick. We were a little surprised that for as busy as they are, some of the vinyl seats are torn and duct taped. But we liked it and would go back another time to try some of the other offerings.

“Cuisine in the Country”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Right in the middle of a scenic drive through Kentucky horse country sits a unique place that used to be a country store back in the day. Enjoy homemade soups and gigantic yummy sandwiches in a casual and friendly atmosphere.
