It was a Saturday at noon so restaurant was very busy. Our waiter was superb. The special soup was a tomato watermelon gazpacho & it was incredible. Burgers are always good here. A couple of us had salads with light summery dressings - perfect for the hot day we were having. Wine list is also good. Lots of choices so we definitely will go back!

Everything was perfect - food, service, atmosphere etc. except for the booth seating. They need to be refurbished badly. They are no longer comfortable and have no support. I love this restaurant, but I will always request a table in the future. It is a beautiful restaurant and the booths are lovely, but please they need some attention!

After not having dined at Heirloom for almost a year, we returned to a most incredible meal with the friendliest of service. From the special treats we were offered (Salmon Tartar) to the Watermelon Gazpacho and the Beet Salad plus the Heirloom Tomatoes the starters were wonderful. The two wives had the Chicken Livers which they raved about and my brother-in-law all but ate the bone on his Pork Chop. As for me, I had the Rack of Lamb which was seasoned and cooked to perfection. The couscous that the lamb was served with was some of the best that I have ever had.
The problem I am now faced with is that Heirloom and it's sister restaurant Distilled will have to fight it out for my loyalty. Of course, I could just split my allegiance and be a VERY happy camper.

To be able to have such a delicious gourmet lunch in a little town like Midway is often unbelievable, but it exists at Heirloom, where I had the best espresso I’ve had since I returned home from Italy.

Terrific restaurant. The chef brought out a Moroccan flavor in the Rack of lamb! We love this place. I could eat here every week.

We had an EXCELLENT time with our server, Owen (Bo) and the bartender! We thought we should "doctor" our drinks, and that was a huge mistake. So the bartender's recipes are outstanding! Do NOT second guess them! Also, our salad and dinner we incredibly good, and the price point outstanding. We had the beet salad and the rabbit cassoulet. Portions were perfect, and the tastes outrageously delicious! This farm to table, locally sourced restaurant is amazing, and a MUST experience for anyone near or in Midway!

The chicken livers were delicious! The octopus was very tasty! The lamb chops were delicious, but the scallops risotto was mushy and not much flavor. We will be back Vince was a very friendly server!

The food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing and cooked to perfection. The earthy taste and freshness of the food are heavenly.

I highly recommend the lamb. WOW!!! Cooked perfectly, tender, very tasty and just plain amazing.  I wanted to gnaw on the bones. It was the best lamb I’ve had at a restaurant.

Went here for my wife’s birthday and it turned out to be an excellent choice. The rabbit was amazing (hadn’t had it since I was a boy) and the crispy spinach salad my wife selected was surprisingly special. They offered us homemade mint ice cream as a birthday gift and it too was outstanding. We’ll be back!

Have eaten here several times and the food and drinks are always delicious. Only complaint is that on this most recent visit my halibut was quite overcooked. Squeaked against when chewing it and the consistency was closer to chicken breast rather than fish. Was delicious but definitely overdone. Did mention to waitress but since I ate it all anyway there was nothing to send back.
Still highly recommended for a nice, not overly expensive meal.

Heirloom is a great place to meet up for lunch - quiet enough for conversation...simple menu with lots of delicious choices. Its location is easy to reach from Louisville, Frankfort or Lexington.

On this visit, I had the crab cake...my friend had the chicken livers, and we split a plate of 4 sinfully delicious deviled egg halves.

If you have time, it's also fun to explore nearby shops on Main Street.

Y’all... go. Don’t doubt it for a second, make the reservation and go. Get the filet and be amazed. Literally the best filet I have ever had. Worth every penny and had exceptional service.

We’ve been coming to Heirloom for years and go for our wedding anniversary and Valentine’s Day every year. After multiple working dinners out this week at very expensive and very noisy restaurants, Heirloom was refreshingly intimate, quite, and the food was the best I’d had all week. Worth the drive!

Wonderful food, A top notch place in the middle of nowhere. However it was our anniversary and we mentioned it in our reservation on Open Table, and they paid no attention to it. I was angry but said nothing-that is not my style.

Three main fantastic things about Heirloom. First, when you make a reservation, you walk in and they actually have the table waiting for you....seems like a small thing, but they make you feel like they've been waiting just for you. Secondly, I love the option of eating indoors or out. Third, the food and drinks are fantastic (extra spicy Bloody Mary, I'm particularly talking about you!) The staff is experienced and friendly as well.
