About the restaurant
There’s a quiet country road hiding near one of Lexington’s busiest intersections. Tucked down the lane in a tree-lined cove, Giuseppe’s has been serving great Italian cuisine serenaded by live music for the last 25 years. Renowned for its fresh fish and seafood, hand-cut steaks, traditional and contemporary pasta dishes, homemade desserts and extensive wine list, Giuseppe’s captures its guests with the ambiance of candlelight, easy sounds of slow jazz and a taste of passion which flows from your fork, making every dish its own invitation to return. Whether you prefer a table in the main dining room, the lounge, or the patio, Giuseppe’s is the perfect romantic spot for dates and anniversaries, and it’s also a favorite for large gatherings of family and friends. Giuseppe’s Private Dining Room provides a relaxed, intimate venue for business and social events. That is how something so hidden still stands out, and that is why those who find us return again and again.

About the restaurant
Time counts at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse. Since our humble beginnings back in 1978, we've continued to refine our brewhouse experience to make BJ's a place where you can make the most of any meal. We want BJ's to be a place where the moment you leave is the moment you plan on coming back. We pride ourselves in our craft and attention to detail. Our guests come here for our award-winning handcrafted beer. They come here for the Southern California twist we've put on the Chicago-style deep dish pizza. And they come here for our Pizookies®, our world-renowned dessert. But above all we know people come here to make their good times better. So in many ways we haven't just crafted a brand, but a mindset. And our guests are the reason for this. And it's because of them we're continually striving to make sure every moment they choose to spend with us counts. Welcome to BJ's, a restaurant with a Brewhouse soul.

About the restaurant


The Blue Heron Steakhouse is located in the thriving historic Jefferson Street corridor. We offer an excellent menu with steakhouse classics and modern Southern fare with specialties such as fresh oysters, the finest cuts of beef, shrimp and grits and more. Our restaurant started as a hand-crafted cocktail bar and consumer demand made it obvious that we needed to expand to a full-service kitchen. The Blue Heron is situated in a renovated home with exposed brick, a beautiful, locally crafted chandelier, a roaring two-sided fireplace in the colder months. Locally owned and loaded with character, The Blue Heron is a perfect setting for an intimate date, an evening with friends or simply a casual dinner while watching the game.

After living in Lexington for three years, we’re just now trying this place. Its location, on Jefferson street, is incredibly unassuming. Here’s why, this IS the best steakhouse in Lexington. Not Malone’s, not Jeff Ruby’s, not Tony’s. My wife and I went here for dinner tonight, split an appetizer, tomahawk steak, and cheesecake. The steak, I had very specific instructions on, and they nailed it. Lacy, our server was incredible. Ask for her when you go.
