Ordered several dishes and our family was fighting for bites of each other's meals! Live 1.5 hours driving distance away, but will adjust my travel schedule when headed towards Lexington to make sure I get a meal here. Amazing!

We were in our way to a fundraiser, so we thought we'd try the Julep cup because the reviews were so good. We were not disappointed. The salmon was amazing, and the pork chops were divine. Bar selections are great, and if you know Bourbon,...More

Great food with live music. this location is hindered by being located and hidden in a retirement tower. The food is excellent and the service is superb. We are always welcomed with a wonderful chef surprise before our appetizer. The beef wellington rocks, and so...More
