Very pleasant experience. We,ll be back in the future.
Great food, good service. Overall experience very nice.
The food is ALWAYS delicious. The atmosphere is the best in town. Over the top wonderful experience.
It's always good at Palmer's. I have the same thing every time because I know how good it is. I try my wife's food just to get a taste of other dishes. I always recommend Palmer's to my friends and family. Great place to relax and enjoy a great meal. A little pricey but worth it overall.
Great outdoor seating. Met my sibling and their significant other for a brunch. It was raining but that did not hinder the service or appropriate outdoor seating for the occasion. Plus, you can never go wrong with bottomless mimosas.
Great food and service
Always great food at Palmer's. Love sitting outside listening to the fountain on a beautiful night having wonderful food.
Seafood was delicious. Best in Lexington I’ve had. 10/10
Would have preferred more chips or crackers with beer cheese and no carrots
Made reservations but had to wait because outdoor seating is first come first serve. Excellent service but food was under seasoned. Surprisingly affordable. I wouldn’t go on my own but if someone else wanted to go I wouldn’t say no.
Great date night dinner on the part!!! I will return with friends.
Service was a challenge, needed to stop other servers to assist. Oysters were not a good selection, crackers served were stale. Excellent bar beverage. Salmon Oscar was very good, presented nicely and would recommend.
Very good, will return in future.
A delicious brunch experience!!!! Excellent food and amazing service.
Awesome food and service. Highly recommend! Great date night with close friends!
The champagne chicken was not very good. The seasonal vegetables (squash, zucchini and red bell peppers) were overcooked and without flavor. I also thought it odd to serve red peppers with squash and zucchini. The plating looked like it was just thrown together. There were gnats swarming around and dead mosquitoes in the window sill.
Service was slow, server was rude food was average at best and it wasn’t busy!
Food and service was excellent! Shrimp and grits were so tasty - love this place.
Waitress clothing was dirty. Food flavor was mediocre. This was extremely surprising, I have been going to Palmer's for over four years and have had nothing but good experiences there. I will give it another try.
Got seated then ignored. Walked out after no one acknowledged us after waiting for 15 minutes. The table seated after us was waited on immediately being seated next to us.
I recommend Palmers for the quality of food and excellent service.
Great food and great atmosphere! I would definitely recommend this place!
Good service, good food, nice outdoor seating. Good happy hour specials - ahi taco especially.
Great food. Fast and friendly.
good, the food and service was excellent.
Always a great experience
Excellent in every respect.
My son and I were in town visiting UK and enjoyed a great dinner here. The setting was lovely despite the rain and I can only imagine how nice it is to hang out with friends by the water on a nice evening. We both very much enjoyed our meals and, I, my cocktail (a great Bloody). I highly recommend the Cajun Pasta with shrimp!
Love being able to sit on the deck - it’s so beautiful
From the young lady who sat us to the server who waited on our table everyone was so friendly
Palmers never disappoints and I really appreciate their courtesy and caution during this pandemic. My date and I loved our food and we felt completely comfortable dining here. During less cautious times I dine here regularly and they have hosted my graduation lunch, every visit has been wonderful.
Wonderfully underrated restaurant! Food, ambiance and value were top notch!
Food was great, atmosphere was terrific! Staff was outstanding!
Amazing as always. Regulars
The food was great and the service was amazing. The only complaint that I have was that the restuarant was very warm and there were numerous flies and gnats buzzing around during our entire dinner.
Great service and awesome food! Wonderful atmosphere-practicing all the safety protocols.
My wife and had our anniversary dinner there, the shrimp and grits were awesome, they have the smoked Gouda grits with very tender shrimp and pieces of andouille in the sauce tasty , we also had the beer battered fish and was also very good. The service was impeccable, our waitress was spot on!
Given the pandemic situation, it was OK. No menu. No bread. Made a reservation but opted to wait to sit outside. After a 30 minute wait, they asked if we would sit at a high-top in the bar, which we declined. Then we sat down at our table. The waiter tried extra hard and the food was as expected. We just miss the usual experience.
We ate outside by the lake and it was lovely; flowers and plants everywhere. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. I can't wait to go back.
