Enjoyable evening at Heirloom. Pork and fried chicken were both delicious. Woodford Belle drink was too sweet for our taste. Looking forward to trying lunch some time.

Fabulous food and service. I am not a fan of chicken liver but these are amazing. If I lived nearby I would eat here at least once a week. Trust me, try ghe chicken liver dish!!

My wife and I agree we should go to Heirloom more often. I was really impressed with the quality of the food and they have excellent bourbons.

Portions were not like they used to be. Way to little food for the cost. My friend got chicken livers and can not eat the ravioli because she needs to eat gluten free, so she told them to not serve her the ravioli. No compensation was made at all. She did not get anything substituted or any price reduction. $30 for 5 chicken livers and a Bloody Mary - RIDICULOUS!!!

I ordered the warm spinach salad without chicken because I had ordered it a few times before with chicken, and I ended up bringing some home I got so full. This time the size was like a house or dinner salad with very few items on it, so I had to order the chicken late, so I would get full. Again, ridiculous such a small potion with a Bloody Mary cost me $31, $38 with tip.

Not sure what the problem was but when we asked for a different table away from the door, the waiter DID NOT want to accommodate us. He finally did put us in the back of the restaurant when my friend stood her ground on the move.

We will not be back for a long while. Heirloom WAS my friend’s favorite restaurant. We have chosen another restaurant to go to for our lunch outings. Something has definitely changed!!!!!! Disappointing!

Of all the places that my husband and I have traveled this was sincerely one of the top three meals that we’ve ever had! It was amazing from start to finish! Best Caesar Salad, Watermelon gazpacho and our main dishes (beef filet and Fried chicken) were superb! When you think of fried chicken you think how can it be that good...you should give it a try!

Every bite was so delicious! The food was outstanding. Our server was so nice. I don't think she was supposed to have our table but she didn't want us to wait. I only wish we were not seated by the door - every time a server or customer came in and out it was really loud. Our table was in the corner window. Still would love to go back.

We sat outside on a lovely summer evening. What a cute little town! Service was very professional and outstanding. My husband and daughter had the filet and it was a generous portion prepared just right. I had the salmon, which was cooked perfectly, however, I did not care for the cauliflower under the salmon. Too rich and cheesy. Would have preferred something lighter and fresh with the salmon, but that's just me. Overall an excellent experience!

We had another wonderful lunch at Heirloom. While we live in Louisville this is our go too for out of town visitors and in countless visits, have never had anything but a perfect meal. This was a Fathers Day weekend lunch with our adult children and everyone loved it. We took a trip around the square in Midway after lunch which is another bonus.

Covid dining is an experience that I won’t miss. The food was good, especially the salmon dish. We got quite distracted with staff using gloved hands to pull mouth of mask down then picking up drinks and such. It really is hard for the staff I am sure.

Except for larger distance between tables, plastic silverware and masks on the servers, everything great about heirloom is back! Buttermilk chicken and the Mary burger were as good as ever and my bloody Mary was excellent. Service is superb which is also why this is the “go to” place to eat in charming Midway!
