I had a quick lunch at Lexington Diner while passing through town. I enjoyed it very much, especially the staff who were very friendly.

Went for brunch on a Sunday. Overstuffed omelettes were great. Fluffy eggs and plenty of filling. Good coffee too.

First time eating at the Lexington Diner. We came here for brunch before going to Keeneland. Everything was great. Service was quick. We’ll definitely go back.

Food was excellent! This is always one of my go-to spots. However, make sure to budget quite a bit of time, as the service is rather slow. We had a 10:15 reservation and didn't leave until 11:45. I know that a lot of restaurants are struggling with staffing right now, so I understand. I am just sharing in case anyone tries to have a "quick" brunch here before going on to something else!

We made a reservation and got seated at that time. The food was good and the service was very good. We can’t remember our waiter’s name but he had a cat tattoo on his leg. He was a very good and attentive waiter.
The home fries were great!
The Wifey really liked the breakfast brown!

I enjoyed having breakfast here--the food was very good and well presented, and our server was courteous and prompt. There was a nice array of guests: families with children and pets, friends, etc. I enjoyed seeing all the different people enjoying themselves. I periodically visit Lexington, and this restaurant will go into my rotation!

I went for the very first time this past weekend and decided to try the breakfast. I use the reservation online however at 9 AM when they opened there was hardly anybody there so it didn’t seem necessary. The food was fresh hot and extremely tasty. The staff was very kind and I will be going again

Very busy evening so service was a bit slow. However, we didn't mind as the server went above and beyond to take care of us and was very friendly. With all of the issues in finding help this place does all they can to take care of you and make you feel welcomed.

Seating was cramped, I mean really tight in the booth. Should have asked to sit outside. Bathrooms weren’t the freshest smelling. Food was good - nothing crazy delicious and I felt it was a bit pricey. Friend had the Bloody Mary and said it was okay but was not a fan of the Mimosa.

I am going to chalk this up to Covid shortages--in staffing, and in menu items. But the "Lemon Blueberry Waffle" had no lemon, only a sprinkling of blueberries, seemed about as high-quality as a frozen grocery waffle, and arrived cold. It also cost $12, which is just comedy gold. I also took my friend's biscuit because the waffle was so unsatifactory, and it was as hard and cold as a hockey puck. Won't be eating there again.

Service has declined since the last time I was there. Staff appeared to be more interested in socializing with each other than serving their customers. Also I asked for mayo to put on my burger and this is what I got. It was to difficult for me and the person I was with to open. BTW we are not older or weak just was not user friendly. Over all very disappointing.
