Food was not good at all. Been to Honeywood about a year ago and it was wonderful! Food choices Salmon, Lima bean and potatoes. Was not even edible. Salmon dry and no seasoning at all. Lima beans horrible and even potatoes horrible not sure how you mess up potatoes. Other guest had steak frites, ordered steak med rare it was medium well. Nashville style catfish and shrimp n grits were average.

We dined outdoors due to the pandemic. There are no lights or candles so you are sitting in the dark so it was a little odd.

The brunch offerings are amazing right now, have never had anything we didn't thoroughly enjoy at other meals, but brunch is where it is at! They are also doing very well with the COVID precautions. We felt well cared for, and safe during our visit. Thankful for the amazing staff!

Server wasn’t as present as we needed her to be. And I saw her eating behind the wall in the server area. Food wasn’t as tasty as usual. Nothing overly bad, just not outstanding. My mom’s soup beans weren’t soupy at all, rather very thick and a bit dry. Hoe cakes weren’t as good as usual for all three of us. My salad was pretty good but not too much to that. Had to wait for drink refills and the restaurant was not busy at all.

Service was really poor. If you ask waiter for anything he acts put out. Drink glasses were never refilled unless requested. Ambience is nice, but the Bluegrass Music sound track may get a little irritating if not a fan of Bluegrass Music. The food was good enough, prices reasonable enough to return, but the poor service makes me reluctant. Other choices in the Summit are better

Service was terrible from the moment we arrived. The hostess never even looked up and was staring at the iPad the entire time. Once the server arrived at our table he acted as if we were a complete inconvenience to him and was rude the entire time! My food arrived to the table luke warm. The ONLY positive thing about our dinner was that the drinks were strong. This place was a complete disappointment for our date night!!

Had a reservation and got there about 10 minutes early and got seated immediately. Took about 15 minutes to get our first cocktail. The service after that was fine though. Drinks were really fresh, but on the small side. I ordered the steak frites and it was a little bland and a little pricey for a 6 oz and some fries. My date ordered the pork chops with grits and greens and it was pretty good! We really enjoyed the four o’clock appetizer. We will go back!

Honeywood is my favorite "go to" restaurant to have a relaxing lunch with the girls. The service is excellent, seating is in within guidelines of Covid standard, and the food is always outstanding. I told my husband they have Shrimp & Grits (his favorite) so we will be back for dinner soon! Thank you for being dedicated to the community and to creative and healthy foods.

We stopped here our route to Louisville from PA. We both travel extensively and consider ourselves foodies. This place what we wanted for a Friday afternoon “date”. The corn soup was hands down the best item we ordered. The oysters were good, but the sauces weren’t horrible but not the best we’ve ever had. The TKC chicken was also a nice small bite. Warning... they are hot! We could have used a little slaw or something light to cool them off. So many more items I wanted to try! Add as a must go to if ever in Lexington

First they tried seating 6 of us at the smallest possible table they had and had to ask 3xs to move to another table. We posted it was a special occasion and my son’s bday and nothing was said or done. We travel to Kentucky to help celebrate and we were disappointed in this restaurant-we expected more.

Fantastic experience. The service was flawless. I wish I had taken the time to remember the server's name so I could compliment her. My husband ordered a beer that they were sold out of and she brought him a rate of something he'd never tried that he ended up loving. That set the tone for the whole meal. I also felt extremely safe with their COVID safety protocols- plenty of space between tables, employees wearing masks, digital menus, etc. Of course, the food was top notch. Thanks!

We love coming here for their specialty drinks. Being vegan, there aren't many vegan options but I find the staff extremely accommodating and the chef willing to make substitution and trying to accommodate us as much as possible.
