Windy Corner Market – Lexington Kentucky

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!

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

A Woman of Many Titles

Today my sister took me to try a new restaurant – The Mammoth Railway Cafe in Park City.  It’s part of a bed and breakfast – the Grand Victorian Inn.  I have never written a review of a restaurant before, or food, but as I know the owner of the cafe (He was one of my older brother’s best friends in high school and therefore treated me as an annoying little sister), I thought I should share its amazingness with the world!

The building itself is beautiful. It was built in the late 1800s and has been everything from an inn to a stagecoach to a house/residence to a boys school to a old folks home. It has a great history, and one I would like to learn more about. It had fallen into disrepair when it was bought and restored.  My friend owns the restaurant half, and then there…

Berea: Historic Boone Tavern Restaurant

A great review on eating at Boone Tavern in Berea, Kentucky where the food is fantastic and affordable and the service is great. Always an enjoyable experience.

Since it was still pretty early in the morning, we decided to go to the Historic Boone Tavern Restaurant for coffee and breakfast.  Good choice!

boone's tavern restaurant table setingI’d heard of Boone Tavern Hotel & Restaurant and had admired the beautiful 1909 building whenever I’ve been down to Berea, but had never stopped in.  It was built by Berea College as a guesthouse after the wife of the president of the college had entertained 300 guests of the college in just one summer.  Can’t say I blame her for saying “enough”!  Well played, Mrs…
