Diner Reviews
  • "Friends and I went to the Heirloom for lunch to celebrate a birthday. We found the service, food and ambiance outstanding. We recommend highly."

  • "The Heirloom is our favorite restaurant in the Bluegrass. The food is excellent and the service is wonderful Bo is our favorite server. We particularly enjoy chatting with Chef Mark's father, Mr. Henry Wombles, who always comes by our table when we are there. Both lunch and dinner are as good as it gets. The chicken livers(appetizer) are the best I've ever had, and I'm partial to the beef filet and its marinade. The seafood dishes are also always good, and the warm spinach salad with bacon should not be missed."

  • "This remains our favorite in the the Bluegrass area. Ask for a booth for a little privacy. Sometimes gets a little loud due to poor acoustics. Servers are kind and very attentive."

  • "Heirloom was a great restaurant for a nice date. Great food at a reasonable price. Close to Lexington, but almost feels like you're in Mayberry when you pull into the small town with a train track running down the middle."

  • "Came highly recommended and we were not disappointed. Crab cakes were excellent as was dessert. A great find in tiny Midway."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "For this visit my husband ordered 2 appetizers instead of an entree and he liked them so much he said he would probably do it again on another visit. I had the agnolotti which was a pasta dish and I really enjoyed it also (I consider it a perfect summer entree--very light and refreshing). We will be back!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "Service was wonderful - everyone was polite and helpful. Our waiter was awesome in his explanation of the dishes and a great help in our making our decisions. The food was absolutely devine - our compliments to the CHEF - each dish was a wonderful blend of complimentary flavors. One of the BEST places we have eaten in quite some time. Will definitely be BACK!!!!!"

  • "We went here for our first time on a Saturday night during restaurant week. The server was witty and playful, the food was delicious, and the ambiance was energetic. We all had the prix fixe -- gazpacho, scallops, and cinnamon? ice cream. We also threw in an order of fried chicken livers for good measure. The livers were the star of the show, but the scallops were also cooked to perfection."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We went during the Lexrestaurants summer promotion week and had the $25 special selections. The gazpacho was delicious and the scallop entree was very fresh and great (albeit a little small but we assumed it was because of the deal). We even on Sunday copied that dish at home but used shrimp and it was fantastic. Finding new things to fix at home is one reason we eat out and Restaurant Week gave us a chance to try several places at a fair price without totally blowing the budget. We had such a nice time we have already made reservations for another visit to try the regular menu."

  • "I loved the setting in the picturesque town of Midway. We even had the train go by a few times to add to the romantic throw back atmosphere. About the restaurant itself, what a lovely place. The food was scrumptious, elegant yet delicious. The staff was great, we were personally greeted by the patron when we came in and when we left. Absolutely recommended!"
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Not quite enough food for the prices. Very well prepared and great ingredients,,,,but left hungry. The lovely flying saucer plates are very artistic but when the soup bowl holds about 5 tablespoons of soup, I consider it an insult. If it was expensive to make soup like lobster bisque it might be accepted but with inexpensively made Gazpacho...go ahead and give me some soup."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "This was quite a gem. We came out for restaurant week and we are already planning our return visit after looking at the menu. The service and ambience were lovely."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "The crab cake was wonderful and the red snapper my husband chose was awesome. We like to order different dishes and taste something new as we share. The chef's new pretzel bread was brought out as we waited for our order and it came with regular bread, butter and cinnamon butter, a melt in your mouth experience, very nice. Looking forward to our next occasion. Coming here has inspired me further into using more spice and dreams when I cook at home. I can allot of foods and think back on our dinners there, I now mix and match my own sweet/spicy salsas with dishes thinking outside the box like peach,tomato,pineapple with Salmon. Thank you for inspiring me."

  • "My wife and I absolutely LOVE Heirloom! We drive from Lexington for the amazing food and great service. The spinach salad, chicken livers and beef tenderloin are spectacular! This is our favorite restaurant in Central Kentucky!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Midway is cute. The waitstaff seemed unorganized - no one was waiting in front or behind us. The restaurant week preset meal ran out and had to substitute scallops with shrimp. My friends thought both versions were "fine". I had the pea ravioli and thought it was "fine". The restaurant was freezing cold. The wine list was ok. I may have had my expectations too high, but I was underwhelmed with all aspects of Heirloom. It was good/nice/fine atmosphere and food, but was expecting mood music, more professional host/waitstaff and even higher quality of food. I feel that I've had better mid-range food in Lexington, then driving out for "high end" food in Midway."

  • "I researched restaurants for our trip to Kentucky that were near the Kentucky Horse Park and selected this one. What amazing luck. This is, hands down, the best restaurant that I have ever eaten at. I had the duck. Not sure why I picked this because I have never had a good experience with duck in the past. Originally I wanted the lamb but they did not have it that night on the menu. My sister had the pasta dish, dad had the livers, and mom had the burger. Everything was amazing. The duck was just like a high end Filet. It was so tender and so well prepared it was amazing. We all shared everything and all the dishes were tops. I think we will travel back to midway one day just to eat at this restaurant."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The food is simple in its presentation but wonderfully complex in its taste. Most certainly on any foodies top 10 list"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We had a wonderful meal. Both the fish and the duck were excellent. We really enjoy the creativity of the chef and we consider this our favorite restaurant in the Lexington area."

  • "My lunch with my friend and former boss for his retirement was absolutely perfect!!!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "The menu was filled with wonderful selections, but I could not resist the burger! It was one of the best I have ever had! Fresh! Good Quality Beef, beautiful tomato! YUM! We did say no to the dessert menu, but as we were walking out we noticed a couple sharing the blueberry cobbler---it looked fantastic!"

  • "We have been several times and always enjoy the food. Service is a little hit or miss"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "My husband and I enjoyed an anniversary meal here and as usual, the meal was perfection. The Berkshire Pork Tenderloin dish is a favorite. Deliciously prepared and presented. The tastes blended so well. We've enjoyed every meal at Heirloom."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Good food, great service, interesting specials, charming locale. A bit pricey for everyday dining, except for lunch which is reasonable and different than most lunch menus. Highly recommend."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "We once again ventured away from Lexington for dinner at Heirloom, and once again it was worth the drive. The occasion was our anniversary. It fell on a Wednesday, and of course we had trouble getting out of the office in time. Although they were busy, Heirloom's hostess was very gracious about pushing back our reservation. Our server was pleasantly attentive and recommended a wine that worked well with our menu selections (even better, the bottle was half price because it was Wednesday!). Finally, the food--as usual--consisted of fresh ingredients impeccably prepared; my husband practically licked his plate clean!"

  • "My boyfriend and I spent a weekend cycling in beautiful Woodford County. Dinner at Heirloom was a special treat! Outstanding food and service in a friendly, neighborhood place. We will return!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Heirloom is a lovely restaurant and we enjoy it very much for dinner. I was therefore very disappointed by our lunch time experience. The menu was limited, a couple of salads, a couple of sandwiches and their very rich chicken liver plate. They were not prepared for a holiday weekend lunch so service was slow and bordered on rude. If you want to go to Heirloom, go there for dinner."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Chef Mark Wombles continues to add beautiful and innovative delights to the menu. Both our entrees were delicious, but the newly added strawberry gazpacho was outstanding. A wonderful mix of tastes and textures. I tried it out of curiosity, but I will have it again for real dining enjoyment. Combined with excellent service, the Heirloom stands out."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Heirloom has become one of two ABSOLUTE go to places in central Kentucky for my wife and I for special occasions, a REALLY good meal or the place to bring out of town guests. No matter what we order it is a hit. Mark and Mathew are always looking for a way to "kick it up a notch". Dinner specials, new dishes with a twist they just don't miss."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "I took my girlfriend there for our anniversary and we were so impressed. The food was amazing. Hands down the best place we have ever eaten at. And I'm a bit of a foodie. The atmosphere was spot on for a romantic dinner for two. The wine list fit us to a "T". I would definitely recommend this place for anyone that has a special occasion to celebrate."

  • "The food and ambiance are always great here. Would love to see a less exotic entrée or two for the less adventuresome dinner like myself. It is my spouse's favorite restaurant. He usually loves everything on the menu."
