I always have a great experience at Carson's!!! Excellent food and service!
Carson's never disappoints! The food is great and the setting looks upscale yet relaxing.
Bread pudding french toast and deep fried biscuits are a must! Always delicious and stay is very friendly! We❤️ Carson's!
Food was excellent! Server was friendly and attentive. Noise level was okay, it’s part of the atmosphere. Will go back again and again.
Food and the drinks were excellent - extremely busy but our server was great. No room to wait though for table and hostess a tad bit overwhelmed
What made this dinner outstanding was our server Tyler. His recommendations when requested were excellent and he checked on us periodically without being intrusive. Superb job by him.
All 5 star plus. Best food and drink I had in a long time
From entering the restaurant to the final bite of dessert this place rocks ! Great food, staff and reasonable prices
Little too loud next to the streer
Everyone in our party of 4 enjoyed their meals. Service was excellent and prompt. In town for Keeneland and would definitely return.
Great service. I made a reservation through this app, We was actually 15 minutes late and was able to get seated quickly. Service was five star and food was excellent.
First time at Carson’s and it didn’t disappoint. The food was excellent. Will definitely be back!
My boyfriend and I frequent Carson’s regularly, or as much as we can (always packed and hard to get a table). We came for his birthday and it was perfect. We sat in a booth and it was pretty quiet. The service is always so great and food and drinks, incredible. They have a wide variety of options on the menu so whoever you bring will find something they like. We had a wonderful time and look forward to visiting for dinner again soon. 😊
First time dining there and was impressed with the food, ambiance and service! Glad we made this choice!
Amazing food and atmosphere. Will definitely be back.
Our server was excellent as was the food. Delicious
Restaurant was fine…parking a nightmare!!
Great, thank you!
Jeff was our waiter. He was awesome. Super knowledgeable about the menu and our options. Drinks were never empty, food was on point, service was impeccable. Made for a wonderful evening and experience. Would highly recommend Carson's and top marks for Jeff.
Overall great experience. Andrew, our server, was kind helpful and had excellent timing. We were able to get in and out without feeling rushed. Food was excellent as always.
The food was delicious! I had the grilled ham snd gruyere sandwich, my husband had the pork belly burger and we were both very impressed! Andrew was our waiter, very attentive and kind. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
Our go to place in Lexington. Terrific food and service.
We traveled to Lexington to celebrate our daughters 22nd birthday. After checking the menu we chose Carson’s. We were not disappointed. Scott provide excellent service and made perfect suggestions on the food. The music, the vibe and the history make this place a must do. This was one of the best meals we’ve had in Lexington.
Food and service was great. I had the ribs which were amazing. Also loved the smoked gouda mac and cheese.
Really not impressed. We had heard raving reviews about Carson's, so we decided to try it out. For the price, the food was mediocre. Our waitress was fine towards us, but we witnessed her rolling her eyes at a large party seated in her area and her demeanor towards us completely changed at that time as well. I guess she was just having a bad day 🤷 The broccoli with cheese sauce was literally two long stalks of broccoli with a glob of lard-looking cheese. Not that appetizing.
Food was creative and delicious. Fair pricing. Noise level is too high, really cannotarry on a conversation unless your next to a person.
We had the best anniversary dinner. Our server made fantastic recommendations and was absolutely phenomenal. They even gave us a champagne toast on the house. We highly recommend this place. It’s our favorite lexington spot.
I took a friend traveling through Lexington for brunch! She enjoyed her Bloody Mary and meal tremendously! She’s giving you guys a 10/10!
I enjoyed the food and atmosphere of Carson’s. We love the Béarnaise sauce and Parmesan cheese on the fries! I had a kir royale, which was also delish. My husband ordered the filet mignon while I ordered the Spinach and Field Greens with salmon. Every bite was tastebud heaven — many vibrant flavors coming together for pleasurable nourishment.
Great! Kudos to our server Tony!
Great service. Excellent food as always. Love this place.
Fun, even with kids!
Carson's food is always excellent. I brought someone who had never eaten there and she loved her meal as well.
Went for the first time while in town for racing season and bourbon tours. Loved it so much we booked again for our last night before heading hone.
Service was spectacular. Food was great and the cocktails extra good!
Perfect experience. Seated immediately with an on-time reservation. Food was excellent. Service was incredible. Steaks cooked to perfection with perfect char. Hefe was fresh off the tap. Ashtin was our server and she was on point with the timing and service. Best restaurant value in Lexington.
The food was excellent as well as the service. Carson’s is one of my favorite restaurants in Lexington KY
Tony provides excellent care. Great recommendations, speedy service, and a charming table-side manner.
Drinks were tasty! Tuna was tip-top!
