Southern Inn Restaurant
DeliciousWe went with my college age son and several of his friends for a "special dinner". Everything was delicious, and the service was great- very friendly. Couldn't have been nicer, and reasonably priced. We will be back the next time visiting Lexington.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Food!!We found Southern Inn's website and decided to give it a try. We are very glad that we did the food was some of the best meals that we ever had. My wife and I dine out a lot and to experience this great food coupled with great atmosphere and service is a true find. We only wish that it was in PA so that we could be "the regulars".5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBoth classic and modernA gem of a genteel, old Southern downtown restaurant, where you can get some classics, like fried chicken, meatloaf and mashed potatoes, but you can also get more contemporary cuisine. The menu is imaginative without being over ambitious. Tasteful interior decor, the booths are great in terms of noise reduction, and it's popular with the locals.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery AccommodatingSouthern Inn staff were so accommodating and welcoming especially on Mother's Day. They made us all feel very special even though we were out-of-towners. The food was excellent in every way from salads to desserts. I am very fortunate I was able to get an honest review of Southern Inn from the TripAdvisor. If I am ever back passing through Virginia again from Hawaii, I will certainly visit this super restaurant5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food great peoplewhenever I travel I look for great food AND great people. Lexington Virginia and the southern Inn has both. It is a five star experience. I liked it so much I went back the next day. I would recommend this jewel for anyone and any occasion. Thank you for allowing me to experience food prepared and served with love and skill beyond my wildest dreams.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMtremendous food and servicewent there for dinner after son's graduation from W&L Law.

Unusual range of choices including excellent calve's liver.. Food was very well presented and even the iced tea was freshly brewed. Great experience overall.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNew to the areaWe had never been to this area before. Our B&B, The Hummingbird Inn suggested it on their website. What a wonderful place to eat. The food was outstanding. The Inn had a deal with the Southern Inn for a free dessert with the meal...and were they ever great!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular!Chef George is amazing! His love of food shines through everything - from the beautiful restaurant remodel to crisp linens to the thoughtful menu choices - it is always a delicious experience. We were seated at a table with a window view into the kitchen. The girls had so much fun trying to figure out what was going on inside, and loved watching their desserts being created in front of them. The kitchen custom made a vegetarian pasta for the kids, and a vegan dish for my husband while I splurged on the special - crab cakes. They were hands-down the best crab cakes I have ever eaten, and we left feeling fully satisfied.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Food Favorite in LexingtonThoroughly enjoyed this new experience in Lexington...a surprising food destination in VA. The food was very well prepared and interesting. Good wine list. Charming service. We have tried several other locations in Lexington which we have enjoyed and we will certainly make the Southern Inn another fav.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMNeed to have more vegetableNeed to have more vegetable choices, maybe sides?

I recently had the special Zuppe di Pesce (I think a better name would have been cioppino). There was a nice mix of fish and shellfish, severed in a bowl with veggies, herbs, and a really nice broth with several crostini. It was really excellent.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLots of +'s and one -Wonderful experience except that the beef in the beef salad was way too chewy. The wine was perfect and the desserts over the top.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest place to eat in Lexington!Best place to eat in Lexington!
