I own The Barrel Market in Lexington and I have had numerous customers to my store tell me about this place so I decided to drive over from Lexington and experience it for myself with another couple.

It was ell worth the drive from Lexington. We enjoyed Salmon, Nashville Chicken & Waffles and Shrimp and Grits as our entrees. We all loved them. Brought out nicely, very hot. We had Brussel Sprouts as well because my wife likes them. All 4 of us felt they were the best Brussel Sprouts we had ever had. Enjoyed a Ham Appetizer and Cheesecake Desert which were all excellent as well.

I’d suggest you have a jacket or sweater, we are all a bit chilled. The table we sat at was large, and the ambient noise level in the restaurant is high and it made it a bit difficult to hear the person sitting farthest from you.

The server was knowledgeable about the menu and Bourbon. It was very evident that everyone has been well trained in their offerings, and customer service.

Certainly a place to enjoy on its own or for those exploring The Bourbon Trail.

And if your visiting the Bourbon Trail, stop in The Barrel Market located in The Summit at Fritz Farm in Lexington.

It was absolutely delicious. The food was amazing and service was excellent. Staff was very knowledgeable about the menu. Our tasting was amazing. The room we did our tasting in was beautiful. Staff very knowledgeable about the bourbon, history of the selections and their product. Bartender in the front bar (think it was Jeff or Chris) made a fabulous Manhattan. We truly had a wonderful time. We will be back!

Best old fashion I’ve ever had! Ordered the brussels for appetizer and was surprised at how well the blue cheese complimented it. Four in our party. Two ordered the club sandwich and had to get go boxes. One had the Caesar salad with shrimp that was really good. I had the BBLT and wanted something besides chips to go with it, so I got the bourbon roasted carrots.... they were YUM. I don’t usually let hubby have dessert when he doesn’t finish his lunch, but he wanted the bourbon flight of the day! Everyone was pleased and we just loved the facility!

Love this place.. Not disappointed yet.. Food very well prepared. Not a fan of the mixed drink from the bar, but I prefer my bourbon neat. Stick with what you like...

Good was great, atmosphere was good.
I wouldn’t order the charcuterie board again as the bread was bad and there needed to be some textural variety
But dinner was great

We will be returning here in the future! Great experience, beautiful design, and outstanding food! The staff was friendly and they answered so many of our Bourbon questions. We bought a bottle to take with us after dinner!

Food & beverage were outstanding. Loved the modern environment which was a welcome contrast from other distilleries & restaurants we visited while in town. Meal was set at a leisurely pace while still having an energetic atmosphere.

We arrived and the modern facilities were definitely a different sight,so we were a little weary. Upon arrival the staff was amazing and our tasting was perfect. We had a reservation for lunch after and the food was fantastic. We enjoyed it so much we came back after another tour down the road. We stayed for hours of drinks and bocce.
The whiskey is a fresh take on the classics and they do a magnificent job. Missing this one would be a mistake. Go visit!

The overall feel of this place is great. Modern, open dining. Incredible bar. Our server was INCREDIBLE. However, the food at lunch was just sub par. The Brussels sprouts were great, as others have said. But the burger was overdone and the chicken sandwich was lacking in flavor. The Old Fashioned was bland. Not something you'd expect when paying these prices. I'd still recommend a visit, and I'll even go back for dinner the next time I'm in the area.

The chicken and waffles were amazing. My wife enjoyed it. We also enjoyed the fries very much. I got the wagyu burger and it tasted slightly above average for a burger. When I come back I will be getting the chicken and waffles. Need to recommend that to more people

Service was wonderful and the views as well. All the food tasted great except for the fried chicken. It was $18 of wasted money because it was over cooked and the breading was thicker than an orange peel. I saw three other tables with the same chicken meal and they all looked the same. The other tables were peeling away the breading. In short don't get chicken, but all the other meals are awesome.

Perfect all the way around. Drinks, appetizers, and meal was on point. Server was very polite and just the right balance of service and letting us be able to talk and eat. We will certainly be returning.
