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.

    I brought my wife here for her birthday brunch. We have dined her a few times before and everything was great but this was our first brunch. As always everything was great. The staff and manager were very friendly and nice. We both ordered the “specials” which were the bulgogi quesadilla with a kimchi sauce and the eggs benedict with crab. Both entree’s were very delicious and portions were good. The bloody mary was a little more spicy than I’m used to but was very tasty. Quality brunch. Great staff. Great experience.

    Food and drinks were AMAZING! Good value on their giant selection of bourbons as well which is a plus. Our waitress was okay, nothing over and above. The food was pretty pricey for how much food you received but it was fantastic. Ambiance was very awesome and family friendly but as a couple it was great.

    Epping’s is always a treat! Myself and seven other good friends had a wonderful dining experience at Epping’s last night. Our server Matt was very personable, attentive & knowledgeable about the menu. He was also very helpful with recommendations for cocktails and food pairings. Lastly compliments to the Chef Nate for all the amazing small plates shared amongst the table with friends & individual entrees for us all. PS the lasagna feature was to die for! The addition of crispy guanciale bits.. unreal! 🤌🏻

    Service wasn’t good, ran out of water even though they put a pitcher on the table. Had drinks and had to wait 15’ for the waiter to stop by and see if we needed something. Table next to us arrived 30’ later yet was served their dinner before ours. When we were served they brought out 3 of the 5 servings and then waited another 8’ till the other 2 meals were served. When approaching the server, he agreed it wasn’t good service and would check with the kitchen.

    As always the food at Epping’s was delicious and served in a timely manner without feeling rushed. Our server, Susan , was great! She was friendly , professional and anticipated our every need. The focaccia , Spanish shrimp and the crab cake small plates are a must. Desserts are excellent as well. Everyone at our table raved about the bourbon apple pie frozen dessert.

    Great food and space. We have been here many times for brunch and dinner. While our server was fine, the overall experience suffered because there was a separate event in the other half of the restaurant that took all the staff attention. I was not aware of this competing event when I made my reservation. My husband ordered a beer that never arrived (all the bartender had to do was reach in a cooler and get a can out), however the bartender had time to make many mixed drinks for the special event. We had a great view of this from our seat. Really disappointing experience overall from a service standpoint and different from the numerous times we have been here. If you can’t give regular customers good service when there is an event then you should close the restaurant to regular reservations.

    Kitchen was sooooo slow this visit and it wasn’t very crowded. I ordered piri piri chicken and it was just ok. Small portion for the price. The other person ordered a chopped salad with chicken. Again, the chicken was nicely seasoned but the salad I could have ordered at Wendy’s (and for far cheaper). Ordered the red velvet cake for dessert to share and it was THE driest cake I’ve ever been served in a restaurant. We were in a hurry, so just paid and chalked it up to experience.

    Nice night out with a friend in from California. Brussel Sprouts were incredible, same with the Foccaccia (sp?) bread. Beet salad coulda used a few more greens. Cap steak was incredible and heard the Piri-Piri chicken was so good. Nice server... left happy!

    Our waiter Hunter was delightful, nice young man and good server. The bar was busy but it took way too long to get our drinks. And that happened last week too, last week we actually got our entrees before our wine. I just figured it was a one time thing but twice isnt good and a 3rd time means we wont return.
