Great first time to the Castle and great experience! Food and service was great and the environment was quite interesting! Make time for a night cap at the bar and if in town stay in the available hotel suites!

The blackberry jam was delicious. The fries were crisp and perfect. The sausage was made with meat from animals feed almonds which made it taste slightly different but still delicious. The waiter was very polite stating of course to each item ordered. It was overall just a great experience!

For the price of $52 for the wagyu filet, they had the nerve to upcharge $4 for a substitution from grits to vegetables. $140 for 2 pieces of meat and 2 small serviings of vegetables with the tip - drank water.

We had lunch and the menu had excellent choices for either breakfast or lunch. We chose three entries to share. The scotch egg, done semi soft boiled and encased in the most delicious sausage I have ever tasted. The salmon crepes in their cheesy sauce was divine. The Belgian waffle and its caramel sauce made a perfect dessert for our brunch. Coffee is delicious. Service was outstanding. There were other guests dining, but we were not too close to them and had our conversation with a feeling of privacy and comfort that we could stay all day.

My visit to Castle Farms two months ago exceeded my expectations. Unfortunately, this trip was a disappointment. I made reservations a week in advance to have lunch with friends who had never been. When we arrived, we waited for a bit before someone was available at the desk. We were told our table wasn't ready and we were escorted into the dark bar to be seated there for lunch. When I said that we really wanted to be in the dining room, I was told that it would be a few minutes to set it up, which was fine as it gave us opportunity to look around the castle. When we returned to the great hall to be seated, we had an awkward wait before someone was available to take us to the dining room. There were only two tables of guests in the room when we entered.

When our lunch arrived, I was embarrassed to see a two-bite piece of chicken on a waffle for my friend. As it was her birthday celebration, I did not make a fuss. Our entrees were meager, without any garnish, not what one would expect for the caliber of restaurant that Castle Farms is trying to be. This venue has potential, but it is falling short. Guests coming here should feel like someone cares that they are here.

We were so excited to eat here, and felt let down. For starters, there were flies and bugs flying around the entire time we were there, which literally made it feel like we should have just dined outside. When our food arrived, 40 minutes after we ordered it and only the second group seated, the portions of two of our meals were surprisingly small. My husband’s salad was nothing special, just an ordinary Caesar salad ridiculously overpriced. My father’s burger was cooked well when he requested medium, and so it wasn’t good at all. I enjoyed my grits and lamb sausage, and my stepmom enjoyed her crepes, however for the price we thought the portion size was small and the food should have been spectacular.
The meal just fell way short of expectations for the price. Our server was very nice, but the food took way too long to come out and when it arrived it just wasn’t great.
Beautiful setting though, but I would not recommend it to people.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary (even got a sweet card and dessert) and it was a great ambiance. The filet and scallops were delicious! Everything seemed fresh, farm to table from their organic garden out back. Wonderful way to celebrate a special occasion.

Anniversary dinner. Had always been fascinated with this place, so decided to take my wife for anniversary dinner. Food (filet) was excellent. Service was exceptional. Ambiance kind of meh, which was surprising considering it’s in a castle and really the whole reason we went. Need to dim the lights a bit, upgrade the dining room furnishings and create some atmosphere.

When entrees run between $30 and $40, you expect great food. 3 scallops? 2 tries to properly cook a meal and still was not good? Expensive, not very good meal. Since it is a hotel of some sorts, you'd think they would have signage as to where the restaurant entrance is. No. And going to the parking lot after dark, it was pitch black. Not a light to be seen anywhere. Luckily No One else was there! Should have been an indication of what to expect.
No, not at all what we expected. Completely disappointed and Definitely would not recommend and do not intend to go again.

Nice evening. For your price range a few things comparable restaurants present; scrapper for crumbs on table after main course, water glass filled consistently, crisp shirts or blouses for all restaurant personnel, know patrons last name to call and not such as “my man”. Last, how do you continue to support your price range calling for nice casual plus and yet have customers next to you with hat on head backwards? My main course was scallops, explained as three, yet my dish presented with two. My wife had pork chop entree, extremely FAT! Yet, you have much to offer and all personnel extremely pleasant.

The food and service were very good. Take a sweater - it is VERY cold in the dining room. We were dressed for summer, and it was winter inside.
We will not return for a special occasion again. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and they did not special for him, no small dessert, nothing.

We were very disappointed in our trip to the Castle. From the entrance to the parking lot through our visit the service was lackluster. The food might be average at best. They boast farm to table but it didn’t seem like it. The meals looked thrown together on the plate and had zero garnish. We asked for several simple things that should’ve been standard or easily accommodated but weren’t. They confirmed our reservation 5 times but never once acknowledged that we were celebrating a birthday that was noted on the reservation. I have never had that happen with open table before. It has the best backdrop and venue to be something truly unique and special but falls short in all categories. This place could be magical but it’s definitely lost it’s sparkle.

I have nothing but amazing things to say about our experience at TKC! Stephen, the manager, sat us and was always on hand if needed. Kaleb was our host and he was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and helped us make some amazing food choices. The filet was the BEST I’ve ever had! I will definitely return next time I’m in Lexington! Well worth it!

We had a very enjoyable meal for my mothers birthday. We both got the Wagyu filet. It was the most tender meat my mother and I have ever had and cooked to perfection. Our waiter was very attentive and kept our wineglasses filled. They made my Mother’s birthday dinner very special. We wanted the courses spaced far apart and they accommodated. Everything was excellent it was a perfect evening.

Way too expensive for the food you get. The noise level is off the charts, so you can’t hear the person next to you. The tea is all peach flavored which is not advertised. Overall, I wasn’t impressed by the food. For such a small menu, the food should have been excellent. Loved the castle though.

Visited for our 30th wedding anniversary and also stayed at the castle for the night. Was a pleasant overall experience but not worth the price. The food was OK but not of any caliber to brag about. Also, if you have much of an appetite, the portions are disappointing. Service was good and staff was pleasant but really got the feeling that they were trying to upsell at every opportunity. Business I suppose.

Keep your umbrella with you. Our oversized golf umbrella left at the door where we were asked to leave it was stolen. Because of the construction, sound seems to be amplified. If you want a confidential conversation talk in your car.

So glad we went. It is beautiful and the staff couldn’t be more pleasant and professional.

Kudos!!
