This is a hidden gem in KY. It has to be one of the best restaurants in the state. The menu is innovative although not extensive and the food is excellent and well presented.
The service was excellent and friendly. Hanna had a great personality and engages in conversation if she sees it is welcome. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Beet salad was incredible, the best that we have ever had. Very fresh. My beef tenderloin was on the same level. Perfectly cooked medium rare. My wife had the scallops, which were very good, but not great. We also ordered the cheese plate to start with. It would have been nice if they told us what cheeses were being offered, but they were still all delicious. The one downside was that we felt rushed. We went through 3 courses in just under an hour. It would have been more enjoyable had they timed everything out more appropriately.

Drove from Louisville to have lunch at Heirloom. Definitely worth the drive. Started with the butternut squash soup which was outstanding. I was all set to order the crab cake when I was told by another diner that Heirloom's fried chicken was the best. So I ordered it and was not disappointed. Boneless breast on top of mashed potatoes. Crunchy crust and juicy chicken. Highly recommend.

Never would have found this place without a friend's recommendation, but glad we did. Everything was delicious; I was especially impressed by how well the scallops were done, this far from blue water. As you would expect, the bourbon list is impressive. Very attentive service. Wish we lived 1,000 miles closer.

My husband and I have visited Heirloom on multiple special occasions. It is our go to place to celebrate! Every single thing is outstanding from the service to the food and from start to finish. I do not believe there is a better restaurant in central Kentucky and we have wined and dined at several of Lexington's more popular foodie spots. Plan to make a reservation and take your time enjoying fantastic food in a wonderful little Midway, KY gem.

This was our third trip to the Midway area and to this restaurant. On our first two visits, we had great experiences. In fact that was why we took friends with us. On our most recent visit we were very disappointed with the food. The Caesar salad had a strange taste, the chicken livers were dry and overcooked with almost no sauce (the waitress did remedy this) and the steak was overcooked. Our waitress was very good and we were comped on the appetizers, but overall I do not think we will return.

Another fantastic meal and evening at Heirloom. This restaurant still continues to beat any offering in Lexington, including its sister restaurant Distill'd. The the service is excellent and each plate shows care. It delivers high end cuisine while maintaining a comfortable, almost neighborhood feel. The clientele reflects this, with the dining room just as likely to have folks in Stetsons and cowboy boots as business suits. The common thread is that each person in the room receives the utmost attention from the kitchen and the serving staff. I'd like to thank Moe for his great service that night. He is knows how to balance his attention so that needs are met, but you aren't interrupted throughout the meal.
