We believe there’s nothing more important than taking time to dine well with family and friends in a beautiful space. And we have a passion for all things Bluegrass - curing our meats in-house, supporting the region’s diverse farming and food community, and keeping a local-first mindset in everything we do. Epping’s is located in a renovated historic building that once held Epping Bottling Works, home to the hustle and spirit of local entrepreneur John G. Epping. Today, we are proud to honor that history and be part of the energy of downtown Lexington’s Warehouse Block.

Overpriced for what we received. Waitress was not very attentive. We didn’t get the value for our money. $225.00 and our drinks were weak and very little quantity. No left overs like most restaurants. We have been here 3x and won’t be back.

As always, excellent service - and the folks behind the bar were super busy and yet was on it. Nothing overlooked. Seasonal specials were delicious.

The food and drinks were excellent, if a little on the pricey side. Service was great, but it took a bit longer to settle up than we would have liked. Our server, Tara, was knowledgeable and friendly. Overall, an enjoyable dining experience.

Had a wonderful dinner with excellent service. Enjoyed a variety of vegan dishes and the cocktails were very good as well. We appreciated the accommodations on a couple items to make them vegan.

Had a nice family brunch on Sunday. We've now been for brunch twice and dinner once. Dinner is more small plates then entrees which is great for sampling. Though I will admit, the brunch is my favorite.

Lamb meatballs were a hit at the table. Halibut dish was delicious. Chopped salads were a disappointment—nothing special and needed more dressing. Cake flight was a good dessert to share. Bourbon butterscotch dessert hit the mark as well. The atmosphere was lively with a nice decor. My only complaint is that the service might be described as “inattentive.”

We ordered charcuterie and 3 small plates. Was Uber disappointed in the small charcuterie for $21. Literally had 4 slices of meat, two small triangles of cheese, olives, pickles and toast. Def not worth your time there. Was happy to see the small plates made up for it the beef Suya was great, as well as the fingerling potatoes- both good portions for tapas. I’ll pass on the chicken egg rolls next go around.

We went for dinner and the food was delicious, had good variety, and arrived with good pacing. Our waitress (I'm blanking on her name) was fabulous and added to the experience. It can be a bit loud due to how the ceiling is designed but otherwise a great experience.

Without a doubt one of the best dining experiences I've ever had! Location was great and the decor was top notch! Our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. Food was absolutely amazing! We arrived around 7:30 and ended up staying until close talking to the bartenders and tasting some rare bourbons...all of which was unexpected and so much fun!

Also, their wine prices are beyond awesome...and pours were very generous. In addition, you can buy wine there at a DISCOUNT if you take it with you...who knew???

If you're in the area, Eppings is a MUST GO destination!!!

This has become one of my favorite brunch places! The food is amazing and the service was great! Had the breakfast burrito (sorry-I ate it too quickly for photos) and would highly recommend. None of us came in planning to get dessert, but we all ended up with a different flavor of the custard. Chocolate, vanilla, or chocolate mint....you cannot go wrong with any of the options!
