“Quaint little hometown gem”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Staying in town for a short conference at VMI, I ate here with two dining companions at the recommendation of a lieutenant on post. There is ample parking in the back and plenty of tables for a Monday walk-in.

We were shown to a booth and given sizable menus, as well as a print-out of the specials. I ordered the tomato and basil bruschetta for the table, a generous portion of eight toasted points with light cheese already melted on them with a sauce of tomato, basil, onion, and balsamic vinegar in the center of the plate that one could spoon out as much or as little as one pleased. The tomatos were fresh and chunky-cut, and the toast was only slightly toasted, leaving the bread still warm but ready to soak up the vinegar.

My main course the the grilled vegetable club, a large roll stuffed with onions, zucchini, squash, and tomato slices, along with a nice slice of mozzarella. The sandwich was large and tasty, and was better off eaten either in half or with a fork and knife. The bread did get soggy on the bottom from the juices in the veggies. The sandwich came with a side of slaw and a sour pickle spear.

For dessert I had the key lime pie packaged for take-out. When I ate it, the flavor was not as tart as I would have liked. It came with a dollop of whipped cream on top of a berry reduction.

Overall, a very satisfying meal at a reasonable price. Service was fine and would recommend again.

“Nice meal...”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Started off with stuffed mushrooms which were very good. My side caesar was not so good---a bit wilty. My fish was average, husband's duck was very good as was my son's mac-n-cheese w/sweet potato fries. Waitress was very nice, but the food was a little slow coming out (except for the child's meal which was very fast). Overall we were happy with the meal.

“Always consistent.”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We usually go with family to eat here, the service is quick and the food is really good with something to eat for everyone no matter if you want a nice salad or a. Big steak.
The only thing I wish they would do is put some tall plants around the dining room, but they will not since they have been in business for years and have not figured that out,but that is what all the locals talk about.
Change the interior and make is a happier, warmer restaurant,because I think it is one of the best I Lexington.

“Excellent soups”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We had lunch at the Sheridan and it was excellent. We had the crab bisque, with just the right touch of sherry in it, and though no lump crab, the flavor was delicious. The caesar salad was perfect--not too much dressing and fresh. Our adult son had the daily soup special (chili) and a Reuben sandwich which he enjoyed. The waitress was excellent--knowledgable about the menu, perfectly attentive--and the service was quick.

“a lovely dinner”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

The waitress was incredibly helpful and pleasant in answering our many questions, even volunteering to check with the chef when she didn't know. DH had duck, and although I'm not a big duck fan, it was the best duck I've ever tasted. Interesting menu, nice surroundings.
