This restaurant is fabulous. I ate here many times while visiting Lexington and everything I ate was wonderful. The portions are generous and the prices are great. Plus, the wait staff (like Larry) are really friendly and give good service. This restaurant is a hidden gem.

Our great server, Larry. See him there for wonderful service. He has been there over 30 years. He will be leaving in 7 months. The food is delicious and portion sides are large.

I really liked this restaurant. The free breakfast is large and awesome. If you are there for use of their ballroom areas for business they will even deliver your order to you at the venue. Goo service!

Larry was our server and too very good care of us. For appetizers we had fried green tomatos and a beef and potato soup, both were very good.
