    I have had delicious meals repeatedly at Heirloom, but on 11/14 the food was terrible. I ordered the snapper and it was tough and flavorless. I tasted my husband's crabcakes and they weren't much better. Both of us were very disappointed, as was the other couple who had joined us who ordered the same items. The spinach salad, however, was delicious.

    My wife and I visited Heirloom for the first time recently while celebrating a special occasion. We were very pleased with the decor of the dining room and the small accents that lended to the overall experience. While the menu is limited, there is a good variety of offerings, focusing on quality. From our first course to our last, everything presented to our table had excellent visual appeal, which was matched with amazing tastes and pairings. The service we received was unbelievable as our server referred to us as "friends" throughout the evening, making us feel like we were his only table for the night. Overall, we enjoyed every aspect of our visit and will definitely return to Heirloom.

    I had dinner last wednesday night at Heirloom, five of us including a toddler. The appetizers, crab cake, chicken livers, and scallops were great. The butternut squash soup was tasty and rich. Almost everyone got the beef tenderloin at our table, one person got the rabbit. Everyone was satisfied. The servers, Bo, Dalaina, and Amelia all took care of us, that's what you call teamwork. Very pleasant experience, you're missing out if you haven't dined here.

    I never know what to order for lunch because there are so many excellent choices. Gave some thought to ordering the fried chicken for lunch and a crab cake sandwich with those scrumptious fries to take home for dinner. No bad choices at Heirloom!

    Nice place, but a large table ahead of my wife and I delayed our meal by over an hour. By the time our food arrived my wife couldn't even take a bite. So the guard at our hotel got an expensive takeout dinner. I ate and enjoyed my meal, so I can recommend the place for another try. But be prepared for slow service if the small kitchen is busy.

    After being on the road for an extra 2 hours due to traffic, we were not going to make our reservation time. Called Heirloom and they were very accommodating and said they would hold the table till we got there. Once we arrived, we were pleased to see a beautifully decorated, quaint restaurant in such a cute little town. The food was amazing! Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. A big shout out for the Autumn Soup! It truly was the best tasting soup we have ever tasted! Wished we could have taken a large container home with us. It was that good! We will definitely be back!

    Heirloom is a nice spot for lunch, with very good service and a varied menu. I ordered the crab cake which, while tasty, was coated with grease. The sides were all unhealthy or spicy--jalapeño slaw, which was fresh but just not to my taste(too spicy), and French fries, thin but also extremely greasy.

    We were greeted as soon as we arrived. Our waiter was very congenial. Knowledgeable about the extensive wine list. The menu offered a nice selection. The crab cake could have stood as an entree by its size. The squash bisque was delicious. The beef tenderloin and the pork chop were both grilled to perfection. All in all it was a very pleasant evening. We did not feel rushed and enjoyed our food as well as the atmosphere.

    I took a friend here for her birthday. It was the perfect spot. We live about an hour's drive away but so worth the trip. Our waiter, William, was a delight and was very friendly and helped us make the perfect luncheon selections. The fried chicken was the best ever and the root vegetable soup made us both swoon. Will definitely be back. Definitely make reservations as the restaurant only has about 14 tables and I would hate for you not to get in!

    For 15 years, while attending the opening Fall weekend at Keeneland, I have been searching desperately for a rewarding dining experience. For the last three trips, we have had dinner at Heirloom. Their menu is anything but run of the mill, the food is quite good, and the waitstaff very knowledgable about the menu. Although it is not the equivalent of fine dinning in NO, NYC, SF, MIA, or LA, it is quite good and the best we have found in the area (we have tried many others and, for the most part, found them lacking).

    This was our first time at Heirloom, but not our last! The food was delicious and beautifully presented - using locally grown products and highlighting produce at its peak of perfection. The service was impeccable, our server even going above and beyond to make us feel comfortable with staying a little longer with another cup of good coffee when a rain storm started, then providing us an umbrella to use to get to our car. Thank you for an excellent dining experience - we will definitely be back!

    Every time we have company from out of state or out of the country we find ourselves dining at Heirloom. It doesn't matter what menu or special items you choose, you can be certain the experience is going to be comparable to any fine dining experience you have had anywhere. The attention to detail in the presentation and the interesting mixing of flavors with the garnishes will be something you will be talking about for a long time. We have already reserved our table for the 13th of September when we will have an author friend here for a book signing as our guest.

    I've been wanting to try Heirloom for quite some time and it was everything I expected! The food (tenderloin) was superb and the dessert was purely an unexpected delight-blueberry corn cake cobbler. One of my favorite things was that while the culinary experience is first-rate, the atmosphere was casual and comfortable. A great combination! Can't wait to find another special occasion excuse to return!D
