Melissa was an outstanding server with perfect cocktail suggestions and warm, attentive service. The food was beyond amazing! Each dish was perfectly prepared and so enjoyable- we appreciated taking our time to have a delightful dining experience. Heirloom is unique and should be a destination for every foodie in the Bluegrass!
Save room for dessert! Thanks Chef!!

Nice as usual. Food is very good. Steak TarTar should have been ground smaller and not served with toast points. Service was ok. Overall good experience.

For those new to this area, Heirloom is an absolute gem. The railway town of Midway with its cute and interesting shops is only out done by the charm of this restaurant. From the best burger for miles to the chicken and mashed potatoes, every meal is scrumptious. A full bar, attentive service, and on a sunny day, outdoor seating, this is absolutely one of my favorites in this area. Some of the shops are exclusive (Crittendon’s and Freedman’s leather), but Heirloom is our main reason to visit Midway. I have never had even an average meal. I was worried that Covid would ruin the service and some of the regular staff appear missing, but the service has remained excellent!

This restaurant is such a good restaurant you don't want others to know about it. So leaving a good review is counter my strategy. I'm still leaving a perfect review though. So that's how good Heirloom was. (Hint: order dessert too)

Very very disappointing. We come in from Louisville a couple of times a year and it seems as if maybe there is a new chef??? Hollandaise on oysters seems powdered, not home made. The Caesar seemed to have no dressing on it. The filet was tough. The meatballs were not good at all(grits were good) it’s just not near as good as it used to be. Sad

We were a bit early but we were still greeted promptly and pleasantly. We were seated immediately. Our drink order was taken right away and as we enjoyed our delicious drinks or food order was taken. I am gluten intolerant and the waitress was very helpful in my menu selections. The short wait for the entree was well worth it! We will definitely return!

Our server was very nice and informative. Our food took longer than expected to reach us. The food was good but not worth the prices, particularly the ribeye, spaghetti squash, and desserts.

I come from a family of skilled comfort food cooks. The fried chicken dish is the closest to homemade I have had. I would not change anything about it. The service, ambiance, and everything about our visit was stress free and enjoyable. Thank you all for nailing it.
