Liked the happy hour Ahi Tuna Tacos; the wine prices
Great meal and service
Beautiful surroundings, food was delicious and Tabitha, our server, was very personable and helpful since it was our first time there.
Service was ok. Never received, or offered bread and butter when clearly the other tables all had a board. Ended the evening with a stomach ache. Won’t return any time soon.
I had the Imperial Flounder and it was absolutely scrumptious. Server (Ashley)was top notch. Great experience at Palmer's Fresh Grill. I'll definitely go back.
Birthday brunch. Everything was perfect. Free dessert for the birthday girl was a nice touch.
Went for valentine's day and it was our first time going. Thought the service was really good and the food was good as well!
The oysters were absolutely amazing!! The happy hour special was great - ahi tuna tacos and Moscow mule were fantastic. Can’t wait to go back in the summer and sit outside!
We enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the service. Our only complaint is that it was noisy.
Our experience was perfect. The food was very well prepared and presented, our server was engaging, polite and helpful. Our preference for seating was the only issue, it was a cold evening and we sat by the door and occasional draft was experienced.
Great restaurant and food is excellent!
Palmers was an overall great experiment. The food was spectacular and the service was of high quality. A great place for any and all occasions!!!
The location couldn't be better, we were seeing a show at the comedy club, it is the closest restaurant to the club.
The food was good, I would say it is very similar to Bonefish Grill (the bread is even the same). I had the scallops, they were very good. My husband has shrimp and grits, they were average. We also had the fried green tomato caprese, the tomatoes were delicious on their own, the addition of mozzarella and balsamic seemed like an afterthought.
There were several large parties there, so it was extremely loud. We actually took our dessert to the bar so we could talk to one another, it was much quieter there (until UK went into OT).
Overall, I would say the restaurant is good. Nothing I would go out of my way for, but good. May be a better experience in the summer when the outdoor area is open.
Over all I enjoy Palmer’s.....I just always think EVERYTHING is under seasoned.
This was our 1st time for eating here. I suggest to make a reservation if you want to eat here. We had ours for 500 pm and the place filled up quickly. Food was great and the SERVICE was even greater. We will be back here forsure.
This was our first visit to Palmer's - and we loved it! The food was delicious, and the service was outstanding. We had the fried catfish and the salmon, and both were wonderful. We'll be back!
My husband and I had a very enjoyable and relaxing dinner at Palmer's. Our waiter was very good too. This always makes your dinner better.
My husband took me here for my birthday. Everything was excellent thank! Was our first time to visit but most certainly won’t be our last!
Great food, good atmosphere, fair prices. Would recommend to anyone who loves great seafood choices.
Palmers has quickly became one of our favorite restaurants. The food and atmosphere was top notch.
Great place for a special occasion. I hope we can visit Palmers again soon.
We noted it was our anniversary and even though it was NYE they gave us a special menu and a lovely sign for our anniversary. Food was perfect and the service was fabulous as always.
Always for Christmas Eve diner. You never disappoint. Happy Holidays.
Actually, Christmas Eve...very quiet and tasty food with very good service!
1st visit. Will return.
We had a great birthday dinner. Food was great.
Too noisy. Something needs to be done about the noise level. Been there many times-noise is always the issue. Had the salmon which was excellent. Rib eye was good. Burgers are not good. Meat is not seasoned well/not at all.
Wonderful evening, food was cooked to perfection, a great waiter. Make sure you get a Bloody Mary.
Palmers never disappoints...great food, great service in a beautiful place!
We don't come to Lexington often, maybe every two years but we always stay at the Marriott and eat at Palmers as it never disappoints us! This year I believe it was under new management but it was wonderful. I had the special and my husband had the catfish dinner and it's always as much as we can eat! Desert was delicious as well.
We will always eat here when in Lexington.
The tuna shashimi appetizer was the best! And leave room for the bread pudding it was delish!
The service was exceptional, and they really honored the veterans on Veteran's Day. The Salmon salad was terrific.
Took a while to get waited on after being seated. The people in the booth behind us kept shaking my seat every time they moved.
Most of our party had never been to Palmers before, and we were all impressed! Great food and service, and we stayed wayyy past other customers (still within their hours though), and no one made us feel like a nuisance for staying awhile. Palmers was a great place for our girls night!
Ryan was a joy to have at our table. She made the experience fun and provided great service. We’ve been to Palmers several times and have always enjoyed the experience. I would certainly recommend going there.
Had not eaten there for some time. Food was excellent. Being on a low-carb diet, they suggested substitutes for the carb heavy sides.
scallops delicious, bread pudding best in town, blueberry martini is best I've had, and waitress was phenomenal! We will be back!
Everything was perfect! The space was beautiful, the service was impeccable and the food was fabulous! A+++
Palmers is becoming a regular for us, mostly because of the high-quality seafood. There doesn't seem to be any other venue in town doing that category well. In our party we got shrimp and grits, fried whitefish, and I got scallops. I asked for a swap in the starch (from cuscuz to rice), which was very well executed by the kitchen without a fuss. Our only problem was that it was generally too much food, which most certainly wasn't their fault. The service was spot-on, and my margarita was super.
