The food was well thought out and presented. Everything tasty and beautiful to look at. Service was top quality and relaxed, you felt like you had a real open exchange with a human being. It wasn’t just our server but everyone that we came in contact with was kind, friendly and knowledgeable. Will definitely go back.

Amazing food . Absolutely delicious and cooked perfectly. Service was excellent. If I had to find something to complain about it would be portion size too small but I’m a big guy. Would definitely recommend and go back again.

Lexington never disappoints. Food is great value and the vibe is nice. A bit loud at times though but otherwise flawless.

This restaurant is fantastic! The service is outstanding. We had guests with us who were gluten and dairy free and our server beautifully described all of the menu choices and how they could be made to suite our dietary needs. All the food ( and I have had most of the menu) is delicious . The ambiance is cozy and happen’n!

A friends get together for 4 was expanded easily by the restaurant to 6 people. I asked for and received a quiet table at the back of the restaurant which was perfect. Six old friends were able to catch up with each after several years of COVID imposed restrictions on get togethers. Our server Zlatan was dynamic and helpful and otherwise very discreet. We each had a different starter and similar main meals. The starters were well presented and so tasty. The mains were cooked to perfection, with very little remaining on anyone's plate. The evening was topped off with delicious deserts that were portioned just right after a big meal. Well done once again to The Shore Club! I won't forget the greeters at the door who made us feel welcome and were so pleasant as we were shown to the table. Thank you so much!
