A very nice menu with items that are artfully presented on the the plate. We were looking for a place with some local dishes and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent and I recommend this restaurant to all.

From the outside, I wouldn't have expected the quality of food. Duck, grass fed sirloin, pork tenderloin, etc (pork tenderloin voted best by my family). Award winning deserts (literally)- yum, pecan pie. Highly recommended.

Besides the great wine I had while dining at the Southern Inn, I wouldn't order anything off the menu, imagination and creativity are lacking, if you have a dull palette, and care not on food tastes than I recommend southern inn to you, for future reference if you are a vegan, or vegetarian call ahead, so that something may be put together for you, in retrospect of this local spot, they do gather their produce from local markets/farmers, the hostess and waiters were lovely, kind, and helpful, the head chef was disengaged, and his minions rambunctious and out focus, food was delayed and backed up coming out of the kitchen, but the wine was right on time!

Had a great lunch, excellent food, excellent cocktails. Staff was outstanding, knowledgeable and courteous, especially in regards to their knowledge of gluten free options on the menu and their gluten trained staff. Open glass kitchen was impressive to say the least.

All my trips to Lexington include at least one evening meal at the Southern Inn. It is a proper balance between a very well prepared American contemporary meal and cost. Reservations are recommended because if you arrive aftter 6:30 pm on the weekend, plan on waiting, but the wait is worth it. Oh, save room for locally prepared desert.
