Heirloom - Midway
The incredible thing is thatThe incredible thing is that not only was the food GREAT (and the presentation also), but the atmosphere and the service were impeccable! This restaurant is a chef owned business who really cares about what he puts in front of his guests! I rate it as one of the top 10 restaurants I have ever eaten in....and I have traveled all over the world! What a treasure! Jim6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMIt doesn't get much betterI am amazed that this little gem stuck away in Midway doesn't have a line outside every night. My wife and I have been there at least 20 times by ourselves and with friends and each time the food quality and service have more than met our expectations. Of course, we have developed some favorites, but it has never missed a beat no matter what we eat and we do try new items.
Go, enjoy and see if I am not correct.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBluegrass ChicOur second visit to the area, our second visit to Heirloom....not disappointed in either. We enjoyed the scallops with a deconstructed fried rice and beef special with a marsala wine sauce - we finished every bite of both entrees. Somehow, we managed to also consume a dessert - some combination of peanut brittle, mousse, homemade ice cream, torched marshmallows...incredible. Portions were surprisingly hearty, and we will be back next year!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food in unexpected locationWhile visiting from Arkansas we happened to visit Midway Botique. We noticed several restaurants along the street and mentioned that we might bring some friends to Midway for dinner. They suggested Heirloom. We made a reservation for the following evening. Three of us had the Halibut. It was delicious. The holdout ordered chicken livers and said they were the best she had ever tasted (sorry Colonel). I'll definitely return.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways an adventure in flavorFine service always difficult to choose from a menu of temptations. Food was excellent and beautifully presented.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food!Everything we ate (there were four of us) was absolutely fabulous, and our server was delightful. A perfect evening!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZING!!!Heirloom is ALWAYS amazing! My wife and I made a pledge to go there more than just for special occasions. It's just that incredible!!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMQualityThe food is wonderful...especially that Mary's burger and the fried chicken. Well worth the drive from Frankfort which I wish had restaurants of this quality. Midway is a charming town ... And the Heirloom is a special restaurant.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful surprisesHeirloom offeres outstanding food with a creative flair. Everything we ordered was delicious and came with a special twist. Our appetizer featured an amazing leek broth. Our entre combined the crispy pan-fried grouper with the cold, tangy ceviche. Enjoy a rewarding dining adventure at Heirloom.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner restaurant.Great food in a small upscale restaurant. Small town atmosphere added to the ambience. Our waiter was friendly, very helpful and prompt. I had the beef tenderloin and It was perfect...looked just like the pictures on the website. My wife had the scallops and they were perfectly done but a little too spicy for her personal taste. Next time we will ask them to tone down the spice a bit..even with that, they were very good. And, it was Wednesday night....1/2 price on bottles of wine. A great unexpected surprise. We will definitely come back again to try other items on their menu.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers' Day Brunch at HeirloomBest restaurant meal we've had in years...right up there with the Jekyll Island Club. Great job, Chef Mark and staff.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMQuint but tastyThis restaurant is situated in a quaint little town in rural Kentucky. However, the food and the service is outstanding. He would not expect this level worked restaurant in such a small town.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousThe crab cake sandwich was one of the best I have ever has. I subbed the fries for the Arugula salad, which turned out to be a great choice for me. My husband ordered the Warm Spinach Salad with chicken. I didn't try his, but he said it was very good. He did comment that there was a little too much bacon, for his taste.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful experienceWe loved this place! The food outstanding
and dining here was the perfect ending to a very special day for us.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFull bar service nice addition!After years of being able to serve only wine, it is nice to have a full bar available now.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant!We enjoyed this restaurant that was "tucked" away in Midway, KY (an beautiful, quaint, historical town outside of Lexington, KY). The restaurant decor was very simple, elegant and inviting. The lunch menu was simple, but had a enough different choices for our party of 4 to chose from. We ate at this restaurant on our way into Lexington for a weekend birthday celebration for my wife. It as a great time!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time there April 27,First time there April 27, 2013 and will definitely go back. Great food, service and ambience. The menu was varied and sophisticated. A real dining gem in this area.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA DELICIOUS PLACE TO BE!FOOD WAS AWESOME AND SERVICE INCREDIBLE. SMALL AND FRIENDLY NOT STUFFY.

Hands down, my new favorite restaurant.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and fun. VeryGreat food and fun. Very loud environment. Difficulty finding our open table reservation, but was given the table we had requested. For some reason the open table did not record my name correctly so I had to go into profile and change the error. The waiter appeared to not have our reservation but accommodated us as we were first to arrive. No questions asked............good service.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDo not miss this place. DriveDo not miss this place. Drive out of your way. A California pure and full-flavored gem. Reminded us of Cindy's Backstreet Kitchen in
St Helena.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful simple decor, invitingBeautiful simple decor, inviting bar setting, and delicious food and presentation.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was good, not great, butIt was good, not great, but good. I had the burger and it was average (not the wonderful creation I had read about). It was pricey for lunch.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMfood and service was excellent.food and service was excellent. specials were phenominal: entree as well as dessert4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and great restaurantGreat food and great restaurant but cut the salt back!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen we visit Keeneland forWhen we visit Keeneland for the races, we make it a point to dine at the Heirloom.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMLIMITED MENU - NOT!While size of the menu is limited, the quality of food at Heirloom is certainly not! Each of our group of four had a different entree and everyone raved that theirs was the best (we always do a lot of sharing). I had the halibut and it was served on a bed of risoto that that was just wonderful and covered with a seafood sauce that icluded bits of crab, lobster and other fish. We passed on appetizers in favor of desserts and I can attest that the home made ice cream that night was superb. We understand the chef mixes different flavors each night. As good as the food was, our waiter was the key to our wonderful experience. He was soft-spoken, reserved, unobtrusive and genuinely pleasant to talk with. Be sure to visit!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHeirloom just doesn't missThis was our umpteenth visit to Heirloom, and once again we left as "happy campers" From the warm spinach salad to the duck and scallop entrees we were in food heaven. The carrot soup was a real treat and the crab cake and chicken liver appetizer didn't fail us.
Our waiter Beau helped to make the evening a pleasure.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second time atThis was my second time at Heirloom. A most pleasant evening, I enjoyed this visit as much as the first visit. The food was very good and well attended by the waiter.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMA Gem in Thoroughbred CountryOur B&B host highly recommended Heirloom, reinforcing the reviews we read on Trip Advisor. Set in a storefront facing railroad tracks in this small town between Lexington and Frankfort (hence, Midway), Heirloom is sparely but elegantly appointed, with little to get in the way of the light streaming through the ceiling-to-nearly-floor windows. The menu is not extensive, but every dish is a work of art. It reminded me of a local eatery here on the Delaware/Maryland border, the Fair Hill Inn: locally sourced ingredients creatively prepared to take the dish to the next level. You will leave completely satisfied.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMA great dinner, fantasticA great dinner, fantastic place on the way home from
