On Saturday night, the staff of Everything Kentucky ventured out in to the country….Horse Country to visit a cute, quaint little restaurant called the Windy Corner. This little country store and restaurant certainly lived up to its reputation. We’ve only ever heard good things about this place and it certainly didn’t disappoint.
When you walk in this place, country living is the immediate feel. From Kentucky Pride goodies for sale all around to the hustle and bustle of the filled tables of people eating good food and enjoying a wonderful Saturday evening, this place has a little bit of everything.
This little joint offers a wonderful menu and their dinner specials are very unique. I had the Shrimp and Grits and it was to die for. Seriously, some of the best shrimp and grits I have ever had and my family knows grits, honey!
Shrimp and Grits
If you have out of town guests that have never been to Lexington, I would highly recommend this for a great little lunch spot. I think this is the type of place that anyone would enjoy!
Pros: great food, helpful staff, great desserts (the cheesecake did NOT disappoint). The wait to get our food wasn’t bad and they were packed. I really, really like this place!
Cons: The only thing that I didn’t like is you walk up and order. I’ve never been a fan of ordering and then sitting down. The line was huge and you always have this one annoying person that has stood in line for 20 minutes, finally makes it to the cash register to order and STILL has no clue what they want. COME ON! This is just my preference and not a deal breaker by any means!
Definitely want t to try their breakfast, it looks really good! We will for sure be back!!
All in all, I give it 7 out of 10 bourbons! For more information check out the Windy Corner Website and Facebook Page!
Local Feed is a recent addition to Georgetown Kentucky! We decided to try it out last Friday night and we are SOOO glad we did. The building dates back to the 1890’s and it is so cozy with a very simple decor. It has a very warm feeling from the second you step inside.
To sum up the food, it only takes one word.. AMAZING! Local Feed prides itself in the farm to table concept, which was very apparent and delicious. Our server, Woody was so knowledgeable and really described each entree and all the specials. The service was as top notch as the food.
We enjoyed 3 “Shareables” to start our dining experience, however we ate them so quickly I only got a picture of one! We had the, head cheese (it was a special that night), the deviled eggs and the brussell sprouts. It was all delicious and the perfect start to our evening.
One special that night was the Hot Brown! It was made with Country Ham, Chicken and Gouda Cheese and was mouth watering!
We also enjoyed a regular menu item, the Ham Chop served over creamy grits with red eye gravy, topped with tobacco onions. Going to be honest, I am still dreaming about this meal. It was incredible.
Of course we had to try dessert which the selection was very impressive. We went with the Apple Streusel and it was the perfect way to top off our evening!
I do suggest making a reservation, this isn’t a large place and they actually prefer you make one as well. We arrived about 10 minutes early and they sat us immediately. They do have a very welcoming bar area and are known for their amazing cocktails. They also carry craft beer and domestic beer in a can. They offer brunch on Saturdays and a buffet on Sunday.
I am so glad Local Feed is now in Georgetown, it really is a great spot! Be sure and check out their website here and there Facebook page.
