I just stumbled across this restaurant and had to add it to my list of recommendations. One of the best pizzas that I have ever had. And they have dessert pizzas too with Nutella & fresh strawberries. Absolutely amazing!! It is worth the trip to pick up one of these pies!
When I am in the mood for dining on a fabulous rooftop this is where I go. Inside isn't too shabby either. The food is fabulous. I have never had a bad meal there. Very much a part of Lexington. You'll want to dress up when you go here.

A great casual dining spot with my favorite Hot Brown in town. The hot brown is a Kentucky specialty that was created at the Brown Hotel in Louisville. It is delicious comfort food and Winchell's is amazing! You need to go when you are hungry because you definitely won't leave that way.

Whenever I am in the mood for a good steak this is the only place I go. They have chicken and seafood too as well as freshly made sushi. They make their own fresh French bread baguettes everyday and serve them with every meal with delicious herb butter. Their Prime Rib, Cajun Beef Alfredo & Salmon Picatta are some of my favorites. They also have Kobe beef if you are in the mood for something special.

If you are in the mood for an amazing pork chop (they are cooked medium) or some delicious shrimp and grits you should head to Coles. The pork chop is mind-blowingly good and the shrimp and grits are sublime. They are my two favorites so I haven't had a chance to try more of their menu but based on those two items, I doubt that you could go wrong.

If you are looking for healthier fare you can't go wrong with Vinaigrette. They have amazing salads, soups and lemonade. It is so good that you will forget that it is good for you. The menu was created by one of Kentucky's premier chefs, Ouita Michel. They also have a vegan salad available.

This is one of my all time favorite places in Lexington. The food can be a little adventurous but it is absolutely amazing. The ambience can't be beat. It is an outdoor restaurant so the weather plays a big roll in when you can go but this is place you will hate to have missed. So make it a priority when you are here. You won't regret it.

If you are in the mood for casual home cooking then Ramsey's is the perfect spot. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. They serve fresh local seasonal vegetables and they have the best pie in town. I would make an effort to go here while you are in town.

If you are in the mood for something filling and economical, you can't go wrong with Mancino's. The subs are amazing! I love the Reuben, Veggie and Club. I always just get a half and the portions are huge! Great for lunch or dinner. They close at 8:00 p.m. so just keep that in mind.

If you want to taste what a good home cooked meal taste like in Kentucky, go to Cracker Barrel. I have never had a bad meal there in over 30 years of dining with them. It is comfort food with a country atmosphere. A third of the restaurant is a cute country store. Great for picking up a souvenir or two. If you want a true southern meal, try the country fried steak with sawmill gravy, dumplings, with macaroni and cheese and green beans with some buttermilk biscuits and a sweet tea with lemon to wash it all down. YUM!!

This is my favorite place to go for sushi or hibachi. It is right next door to my favorite nail salon. I love the Osaka roll or the chicken hibachi and the Mochi ice cream. It is soooo good! And the staff is so nice. I would definitely recommend going here while you are in town. And if you feel like staying in, they deliver.

I was just recently introduced to this place and its Chicken Pho. It is absolutely delicious and was a lifesaver in helping me get over a bad cold. Their pot stickers and more specifically, the sauce that comes with their pot stickers (its homemade) is the best I have ever had. If you are craving some comfort food with a kick don't miss this place.

I just went here the other night for a friend's birthday and was quickly reminded how wonderful it is. I had amazing Aracini and Chilean Sea Bass along with a delicious moscato and a fabulous dirty martini. They nailed it the first time around. It is a quiet little spot that is tucked away but worth finding if you are in the mood for some incredible Italian food. Quiet and intimate. Great spot for a date night.

If you are craving authentic Greek food while you are in town this is the place to go. The owners are from Greece and have brought their delicious receipes with them. I have been to Greece many times and I love having this restaurant in town. They make my favorite Greek cookies, Kourabiedes, delicious light shortbread like cookies covered in a mound of powdered sugar. And the okra cooked with tomatoes are wonderful comfort food.

This is a Lexington institution, locally known as Joe B's. Most locals have grown up eating here and have loving memories of their breadsticks. If you go, be sure to get a breadstick and their potato soup is pretty tasty too. Not to mention all of the pizza options. A great casual dining option.

If you are in the mood for going onto the University of Kentucky's campus, Pazzo's has amazing pizza and a great beer selection. They also have service that is slower than molasses in January. So be prepared or get it to go. It typically takes around 30-45 minutes. But their Funky Chicken pizza is so good that it is still one of my favorite places.

This place is a nice comfortable Sports Bar that doesn't get too rowdy. They have the best boneless wings I have ever had. Nice and meaty and not too much breading. Their bleu cheese dressing was a delicious treat as well. And their friend macaroni is a great appetizer. If you go on Monday night they have 69 cents wings. Great for those who just want a casual budget friendly night out.

I recently learned of this new restaurant and was eager to give it a try. I have been to Hawaii several times and I love Poke. Especially when it is hot and muggy outside. Their Miyako Poke bowl is delicious! Fresh and very filling. I know this will be a favorite spot for me this summer.

Entertainment & Activities

If you are visiting Lexington, KY in April or October then you should go to see the races at Keeneland. It is very much part of the culture and history of Lexington. A big social occasion where you can see people dressed in a variety of apparel, from casual to formal. You may see distinguished visitors like former Presidents of the United States and other dignitaries. If you are there in the Fall try some Burgoo. It is a delicious stew that will keep you warm.

This is such a fun experience and if you are in town on and want to try something different I would absolutely recommend this place. I have been several times with different groups of friends and it is the perfect thing to do before dinner. It lasts about an hour and you usually end up working with other people including your friends to find clues and solve the puzzles. If you like a good mystery don't miss out on this while you are in town.

Parks & Nature

This is the only park in the World dedicated to the Horse. As a horse lover myself I have been many times. You can see many different breeds of horses, go on a trail ride or carriage ride to tour the park. There are often special events and horse shows going on out at the park so be sure to check its website to see what might be going on while you visit. It is easy to navigate and the scenery is iconic within the state of Kentucky.

If you feel like getting out and enjoying nature, this home is located in a neighborhood that is right next to a 600+ acre park. It has volleyball courts, soccer fields, a bike path, a playground, a 16 acre fenced in dog park, an indoor riding ring and a cross country jump course.
This little 26 acre park is just a stone's throw away and is a little hidden gem in the middle of Lexington. You can go there to enjoy a peaceful hike, enjoy some beautiful nature and natural springs and learn about the history of Lexington. Great for small children. No pets allowed.

It occurred to me that since so many of my guest bring their pets with them that it would be good to list a 24-hour Emergency Vet Clinic. This is where I have taken a few of my own dogs for after hours emergencies and specialized surgeries. They have a wonderful staff and you can find comfort in knowing that they will receive 24 hour care.

This is one of my favorite little shops to go to after having Brunch at Wild Eggs. It has all sorts of cute things and is a great place for finding gifts. They have a lot of Kentucky & University of Kentucky themed items as well as Bourbon & Bowties bracelets.
