Carson's Food & Drink
Great food and service
My husband and I had the best experience dining at Carson’s. We arrived early and enjoyed cocktails at the bar prior to our reservation time. The service was outstanding at both the bar and the restaurant. Every item we ordered from the spicy shrimp appetizer to our salads and entrees were delicious.
Cannot wait to visit again!
We were there very late night but bar and kitchen were both extemely accomodating! I love Carson's. It has a very metropolitan ambiance but is equally comfortable. The menu is spot on--everything I have tried is wonderful. This is one of my go-to establishments in Lexington!
Tge service and the setting are amazing, and the food & drink do not disappoint. All around great place to eat.
Awesome place and awesome food!
Its a great local place with an AMAZING selection of food and drinks. Staff was friendly and quick. The place it self was beautiful. My new favorite spot in town!
The food is always amazing and we love the atmosphere.
We arrived and were seated at a booth which I had requested in my reservation. We started with the Brie, jam and fruit. It arrived warm along with our waitress wanting to take our order. As always, the burgers never disappoint. Once our food arrived, it took awhile for our server to check on us. Condiments were left off one burger. Burger was cold by the time our request was taken care of. Four Stars!
Better service with a smile would have warranted 5 stars.
Beautiful mix of old and new...original brick, reclaimed wood, with modern fare and delicious bourbon. The wait staff were knowledgeable as well as delightfully charming and helpful with recommendations. Only in Lexington for one night like us? This is THE place to dine without any pretentiousness.
Very good food. Really loud. Sat by the front door. Pretty chilly when door kept opening. We’re seated in a very small booth, crowded. We were celebrating our anniversary.
Been all over the world... Carson’s is still top of our list
This is the beat restaurant in the area! The food is amazing! I have definitely found a new favorite restaurant in the Lexington area.
Energetic atmosphere. Good food and service.
Always a great experience and delicious food! The service is always super friendly as well.
Spectacular brunch. The chicken and waffles were so good. This place never disappoints.
Server was awesome as was food and beverages!
Arrived early for reservation and were seated immediately. Service top notch. Recommendations from our server on point and showed extensive personal knowledge of the menu. Salads fresh, burger amazing, and filet tender and perfectly prepared. Will definitely be back!
Great food and drinks.
Food always good—soup and salad is my go-to. Service a bit slow but we went at peak lunch. Love the ambience.
Good appetizer menu, large portions. Place was packed from 5:30-7:30. Make advance reservations. Food lacking in flavor eg. Mussels good presentation but sauce was flavorless; Ribs gave you a lot and fall off the bone but sauce no distinct flavor - both disappointing for that
It was a great time. The food was delicious!
Perfect place to meet up with friends from high school to catch up on life. Great service, food and atmosphere was perfect for a beautiful Sunday brunch.
Never disappointed...the food and service are top-notch!
This is a beautiful place to eat! The food was amazing and the service was top notch!
From a bartender who refused to make eye contact with us when we arrived to the server who was more concerned with other tables, we had a good meal and first evening in Lexington spoiled by poor service.
I refer Everyone to Carson’s whenever I’m asked. It’s great for casual, dates, meetings, anything really and the food is always superb!
My wife and I met with another couple who had never been to Carson's but wanted to. They were impressed with every aspect of the evening there. Ricky, our server, was phenomenal; never hovered, always knew when to check with us, and was like an old friend to each of us. We were there 3 hours and every minute was terrific. Carson's gained at least 2 new repeat customers that night.
The best place to go for some great food. Brunch on Sunday has a live band, a lot of fun! Must go here!!!
I have gone here once before but the other three people with me had not. They all loved it. The server was excellent, my reservations were ready, the food was presented beautifully and the ribs were excellent. My friend loved the Bloody Mary's and for once when I ordered a Mimosa, I did not feel like I was just drinking Orange Juice. I see why it is one of the top restaurants in Kentucky.
Excellent brunch. Great service, amazing food. Consistently great!
We came to Lexington from NY to see football game. Carson’s was beyond our expectations.
Carson’s was awesome. We went for a birthday and all had a great time.
So glad we made reservations. That’s something customers should do. The salmon bruschetta was so a real treat with lots of flavorful dill and capers with the goat cheese and salmon. My meal was the Portabella veggie stack. It was excellent but I had the sauce on the side. Good thing as it was very hot. Such a flavorful dish without it.
Fantastic food and service!! Great experience overall! Thanks Smiley and Amanda for the great time! Can’t wait to come back!!
Service and atmosphere were great. Food was very sub par. I was not impressed with the food at all. Flavorless.
Awesome place!! Our waiter, Scott, was very informative since it was our first visit. He was very courteous and the service was excellent! We will definitely be repeat customers! Thank you!
Great food and wonderful service,wonderful beverage selection.
Awesome food and service!!! Always a great place to visit!!!
Wonderful experience. Will definitely go again!
