Dudley’s makes a nice cocktail and the food is always consistent. My only complaint was it was quite warm at our table in the back the night we visited.

When you drop over 100.00 for a meal you expect it to be good. Dudley’s has been a staple in Lexington for many years, but it fell way short of expectations and was a complete waste of money. The fried Chicken Skins were very good, but that was it. I ordered the special strip loin steak and specifically asked the waiter if it was tough. He assured me it wasn’t. When I received the steak, as soon as I cut into it I knew it was awful. Tough, gristle, fatty. All around terrible. The manager came over and told me he would bring me something else and said he would come half of it. I agreed and sat and waited and waited and waited for something And it never came. My bill came and I was charged 30.00 for cabbage and rice. Eventually they comped my meal. The attitude of not caring about my experience was the troubling part. The manager acted like my money wasn’t a priority. My bill was still over 100.00 because I used this as a valentines dinner for me and my date. We purchased wine and other drinks. My date had to awkwardly eat her food while I sat there and waited for something that never came. If you are waiting to take your date out and splurge. DO
NOT GO TO DUDLEYS. The whole staff couldn’t care less of you are satisfied or not.

One of the best meals we have had in a while. The shrimp and grits were to die for!

Really great meal and service. Outstanding! Beet salad was insane and the tournedos were incredible.
