Carson's Food & Drink
Easter dinner with family.
We love Carson’s food- delicious and unique! Just be patient- the service is slow...but it’s worth it!
The Easter baskets with treats for the kids was a great addition! Thank you they loved them!
Best scallops I've ever had!!
Great for a special birthday
great place and great service but real noisy. overall a great experience
Incredibly enjoyable experience! The food was great, they had fair portion sizes for the price and the environment was great, too!
Great food, great cocktails, great service. Loved this place.
Always an excellent experience!
Wonderful! Great food and service!
We waited 45 minutes for our food. Once it was served, my steak was overcooked and potatoes were cold. Staff was friendly and comped us our wine.
Took 4 people to dinner for birthdays. I’d eaten there before and liked it. My filet was tough and tasteless. Whole plate was on the cold side. Fried derby pie dessert was greasy and no better than fair food. Tasted dirt in one bite of dinner and found it to be a piece of mulch. No one was impressed with their food and felt we could have gotten better tasting food much cheaper elsewhere since the bill was $300 with tip.
We eat at Carson’s often and have always had a great experience. This last time the service was slow. We waited a long time for our food. Mine was room temperature but one member of our parties was piping hot. Everyone’s food was good but we did not receive it very timely. There were several open tables so the restaurant was not at capacity. I would still highly suggest Carson and we will return. Won’t let one mediocre experience ruin it for us!
Food, service, and atmosphere were so good, we returned the next morning for Brunch. Best chicken and waffles I've every had!
Brunch was wonderful
Carson's provides excellent, and friendly service, and delicious food and beverages. We enjoy special occasions here and eat here every Wedding Anniversary! Spoiled the first minute theough the door. Be sure to make a reservation, tables fill up fast. Thanks Carson's for memorable dining experiences!
We were visiting from FL, and a friend recommended Carson's. Luckily, we were able to snag a reservation (there were very few remaining)! The UK Spring Game caused an unexpected delay, but they were very accommodating. Everything we ordered was great, and we were not made to feel rushed, even though we knew they probably needed the table. Only downside was that my husband did not receive his leftovers once they took them back to box them; in fairness, we did not follow up, though.
Carson’s always delivers. The food, cocktails and service were great! This is one of my absolute favorite restaurants in Lex.
Our server Julia was awesome! She was there when we needed her and not when we didn't. The food was tasty and fresh. Julia was able to quickly answer any questions we had about the menu. This was a business meeting and my guest/client had just driven in the night before from Buffalo New York. She said more than once what a perfect choice Carson's was. Thank you!
Great service. John is an excellent server. Food was very good. It’s noisy inside but better on the patio. Nice atmosphere.
Best overall restuarant in DOWNTOWN Lexington. Great patio, drinks and service.
Ate here twice during out stay in Lexington. The highlights were the shrimp n grits, ribs and wedge salad. Portions are large, easy to share. Great kids menu and loved the old fashioned happy hour. Make reservations.
Food was outstanding
It was good, for sure. My steak was just over-cooked but I still ate it so hesitate to be negative. Love this place though
My business meeting at Carson's had a surprising twist! Not only was the food and service great, but one of my employees gave me a folded $100 bill for a business payment. Got back to my office and received a call from Carson's. They had found "something" on the floor and wondered if it was mine. Yes, it was the folded $100 bill that had fallen out of my purse when getting my wallet out to pay for our lunch! Honesty is a great virtue and I applaud Carson's for not only hiring great wait staff, but ones with integrity too. You bet, I am going to tell everyone I know to eat at Carson's. Thanks Tony!
Hoping my kid ends up at UK so I can get back to this restaurant in the future. It’s that good.
Loved everything about our dinner!! Service, food...especially dessert!! The Derby Pie Bites were excellent!! Wonderful!!
I have recommended and takennnumerous friends to Carson’s. They never disappoint !!
Great atmosphere with good music. Ordered $16 breakfast and was disappointed. Very blah. Great bloody Mary.
Delightful as always. Fun casual atmosphere. Love the live jazz music on Sundays during brunch. Local gem!!!!
Excellent food in a vibrant environment with really good service

Love this place, always
It was a really cool place with really good ambiance on the inside and really good food. As long as you eat off the sandwich menu, it's pretty affordable for what you get.
Service very friendly, food was fresh and good portions
Service was exemplary!! The way we were treated with the desert and champagne to celebrate our 44th anniversary was wonderful!! I have told many of our friends about your place. We hope you receive lots more business from our word-of-mouth praise! We will return!! It’s no wonder you are always packed!

We had a delicious lunch in a very classy yet comfortable atmosphere. We will be back for sure!
I found Carson’s to be an excellent choice for lunch with an old friend. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent! Can’t wait to go back!
Everything was great. We really enjoyed our date night.
Food was amazing - must try the baked goat cheese! Our server, John, was exceptional and we kept asking for his suggestions. We had a great time and will be back!
