We're a bit like our hometown: sophisticated, well-traveled, but grounded in our roots. We believe there's nothing more important than taking time to dine well with family and friends in a beautiful space. And we have a passion for all things Bluegrass - curing our meats in-house, supporting the region's diverse farming and food community, and keeping a local-first mindset in everything we do. Epping's is located in a renovated historic building that once held Epping Bottling Works, home to the hustle and spirit of local entrepreneur John G. Epping. Today, we are proud to honor that history and be part of the energy of downtown Lexington's Warehouse Block.

    We have been to Eppings many times after work l, but this was our first brunch. Everything was fresh, delicious, and reasonably priced. Our waitress even reseated us with no problems when my handicapped mom couldn’t get into a high top chair. The staff here is always so accommodating and the food so tasty.

    The manager is a gem, warm, friendly and just a lovely individual. The restaurant is beautiful with comfortable seating and an upscale feel. The food was just mediocre with the exception of eggs poached to perfection for my Benedict. We were served lukewarm coffee, despite requesting an increase in temperature for the refills. Overall, a nice experience with a few issues.

    What a wonderful meal. Loved everything about the meal, the service, and the drinks. Wasn't super noisy, but could do with more acoustic muffling. Or maybe I'm just getting old :)

    Always fantastic on every level. The pretzels with beer cheese is an amazing appetizer(which they all are) but the pretzels are baked fresh in the bakery. I had the Eppings Chopped salad with salmon and it is always perfect. The ambiance and service are top notch.

    I had included in the reservations that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, and by doing so, I had assumed we would be seated in a corner or table or comfortable booth to the side. Instead we were seated at a table in the middle of foot traffic and restrooms, which would have been understanding if the restaurant was busy, but there were minimal persons when we arrived and were seated. Then a large party was seated directly behind us at a booth when they could have been spaced out and seated at any of the other open booths. Other than the poor seating, the food was excellent and the salmon and steak were cooked to perfection. Our waitress was excellent. The atmosphere was warm and aesthetic.

    Hi James! Thank you for sharing your thoughts, and for alerting us to an important issue. We're delighted you enjoyed our food and service, but apologize for a missed opportunity by our staff to practice the heightened attention to detail for which we strive. We appreciate your providing us this coaching opportunity, and look forward to serving you again soon! Happy anniversary, and thank you for choosing us! Kind regards, Chris Hutchison / Director of Operations

    We like the chic atmosphere in here and the inventive delicious food. Only issue was the wait staff had to yell “corner” out every time they went back to the kitchen as to not run into each other. Seems like this could be resolved with a mirror hung on the wall so they could see.
