Ouita Michel has several restaurants in Lexington and they are loved by all in Lexington. There is a great range on the menu, from great burgers to delicious shrimp and grits, definitely make sure to save some room for their fantastic pies.
Another Ouita Michel restaurant, this classy spot is worth the drive. Choose from the set menu, a four or seven-course dinner with the suggested wine pairings. The service is top notch and the restaurant itself is in a historic home to add the charm.

Their Hefeweizen is great, we also love the peanut butter stout, tastes like dessert and their strawberry milkshake IPA is divine. They are onto something great with the crafted cocktails using their brews!

Great local beer, friendly staff, and really inviting outdoor space/patio. They serve a limited menu of bar food on a daily basis and food trucks on busier days. Great place to hang out.

McCarthy’s is definitely the quintessential Irish bar in town. Fun atmosphere for game-watching or just socializing.

Marikka's is one of our favorite spots to hang out, they have one of the largest selections of beer, draft, imported, domestic, wine, and mixed drinks. They have several sand volleyball courts both inside and out, unless there's a tournament it's pick-up style and no judgment. They also have darts, pool tables, foosball tables, and more.

The burl arcade is a throwback! 80s and 90s arcade games, a wall of pinball machines, ski ball, and guitar hero. There is a coin machine, we recommend bringing cash.

Another Ouita Michel restaurant with an amazing view! This place is special, it's farm to table, which makes everything taste fresh. We love the shrimp po boy, but you really can't go wrong here.

Great sandwiches and baked goods in a historic building. This restaurant is off the beaten place, but the drive through Lexington horse country is a treat of its own. Guy Fieri named their Brown Bourbon burger the top 5 he's ever had.

The restaurant is located right on the river and has a large outdoor seating area. Most of the times we've gone there's live music too which has been lots of fun! The food is a classic barbecue and is on par with other BBQ places in town, we also really like the crawfish etouffee.
