    Our experience was fantastic! We were visiting Lexington to play golf and watch PGA Championship and found J. Ruby's online so decide to give it a shot. Got the only reservation last week and wasn't disappointed. We ended up just sitting at the bar and eating there to watch the the PGA on TV. The lead bartender was amazing! He recommended our steaks and it was perfect! If we ever make the long drive back, we will visit again! Thanks for a great experience!

    Truly a hidden gem!! Our 1st time visiting Lexington and asked for recommendations for dining. Was recommended Malone's and Palmer's but finally found Merrick Inn and was delighted. Tucked away in a colonial house. Had lamb and pecan crusted pork chops..definitely recommend. Cocktails were wonderful and of course their selection of bourbons was expansive. Had the Merrick bread pudding...heaven! Can't thank you enough Merrick for such an amazing experience 🤩

    We were visiting from Wisconsin on Friday night, and we had the best experience at OBC! The waiter, Chris (I apologize if I have that name wrong) was phenomenal. He made our experience at this restaurant a remarkable one. I got fist bumps from my dining partners on having chose such a great place. We had the halibut, chicken parm, and two had the short ribs, all meals were excellent. Rolls were divine, and the beautiful deserts on the house made it very special! Thank you!

    At first, my only complaint up front would be to help improve, (as an out of state visitor who loves brunch) on noise level. Yesterday hosting my sister and cousin who live close, Carson's perhaps could improve on the noise decibel level at lunch. Perhaps you could use creative noise blocks such as, quilts, large bombayish/New Orleans fans hanging from the ceiling, or a miracle to break up the decibel level. Other than that, it was perfection in my humble opinion. Our waitress was the best I have seen in decades. Well done! We look forward to new locations as well as return visits to this gem. Thank you!

    Exceptional in every way! Had filet and salmon, and each was perfect and delicious! Brussels sprouts and salads were next level, too. It’s a long drive for us, but so worth it!
