    We were a group of 3 early on a Thursday evening having our first visit to the Lexington. We were greeted warmly by our friendly and efficient server. We enjoyed our meal greatly. The food we selected (chicken, brisket, and pork belly) was flavourful, well-prepared, and attractively presented. The only suggestion is that the food is rich and heavy and we all agreed that something lighter on the plate would balance that. The ambience is indeed "energetic" and if you are looking for a quiet dinner, this may not be the best place. On other little thing is our table was sticky. Not sure what was going on. The table looked clean but the brown finish on it was just .... sticky. Not appealing. All said, we will go back for the delicious food and friendly service.

    Date night at The Lexington.. we had never been.. I had the Fork + Knife chicken.. good gawd I will be dreaming of that one.. the chicken was crispy and juicy.. the jalapeño honey was decadent.. left my lips tingly.. and the biscuit was southern perfection!.. all said it was a phenomenal meal.. and the potato salad was one of the best.. seriously! I want to go back! Also the Lovesick blues cocktail was quite yummy.. my boyfriend enjoyed his Carolina BBQ pork sandwich too, but did I mention the chicken 🤤

    Good atmosphere and great service! It was our first visit, and we both tried the fork and knife chicken due to the fantastic reviews. We were a bit underwhelmed. The presentation was great as the dish was brought to our table, but the chicken was sliced VERY thin and most of the plate was made up of batter and the buttermilk bread. Taste was good, but difficult to eat as it was mainly fried batter on bread. We did start with the Brisket burnt ends, which were almost the most delicious thing I've ever had... so unsure if we'll give Lexington another go.

    While the day was very cold outside, so too was the restaurant! We were sitting right at the back so it wasn’t a case of the door opening and closing on us. The bathrooms were also fridid. The food was tasty with healthy portions, although we found the coffee was warm versus hot. And despite being there for breakfast and ordering meals with toast, there was no jam! Service was very good too.

    The staff were very nice and attentive but unfortunately we were quite disappointed with the food which was why we went. All of the meat we were served was very dry, fries were soggy. I would recommend going to this spot for a drink (which were very tasty and fun) as the ambiance is very energetic and a cool spot. But as a date night it was disappointing as it was hard to have conversation and the food was not great especially for the price. Everyone I know speaks very highly of this place however, so I’m just assuming the kitchen was having an off night.

    What a great place! The shrimp & grits were delicious but shrimp could've been grilled a bit longer. One of my friends was brave enough to have a platter without sharing... no complaints. Definitely got noisier after 19:30.

    We really enjoyed the food, and the service was pretty good considering how busy it was. Did take a while to get our drinks and was slightly annoyed that we weren’t allowed to use a visa gift card to pay for our meal. As parents of two, we don’t get out much and it’s a treat going out. Not accepting a normal method of payment was kind of annoying. We would definitely eat there again though.
