We love date night at Rodney’s. The food is always excellent and the service great. My husband had the red snapper special and there were no leftovers. Rodney’s filet tends to be my go-to. Always tasty and my leftover is great the next day.

So glad Georgetown has this restaurant and chef.

I traveled down from Cincinnati per the recommendation of a friend. Rodney's did not disappoint! I had the pleasure of meeting Chef Rodney and spent some time talking with him about his passion. He's a fantastic man and from what I'm told, a great employer. I was alone, so I sat at the bar. The manager Jennifer was very attentive and fun to chat with. They have a wonderful drink selection and very reasonable prices. They have a very loyal customer base and I met several last night, who stop in weekly for the best steaks in the area, along with the conversation. Rodney's is certainly a staple in Georgetown and rivals neighboring steak houses in Lexington. You definitely get the vibe of a family owned restaurant, yet it's fine dining. Rodney cultivated a special atmosphere. Even the music, lights & decor are carefully curated. The food was exquisite. I had the artichoke dip, which surprisingly had capers (intriguing & delicious at the same time). The chips were fresh. The food was at the perfect temperature. Beef Short Ribs were the special and I devoured my plate. It was a generous serving of braised short ribs with fingerling potatoes, carrots, mushrooms & gravy. Definitely comfort food and what I had in mind. They were the best short ribs I've ever had. The food coupled with the hospitality made this a very enjoyable meal. The only disappointment is I didn't allow enough time to stay for dessert, which I heard is divine. I was headed to a concert in Lexington. The stop in Georgetown was definitely worth it and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. I don't mind driving an hour for delicious food and supporting this incredible entrepreneur. Thank you Jennifer & Rodney for making me feel at home and preparing such a delicious meal.

I did some research in advance of a trip to Georgetown in advance of a horse show held at the Kentucky Horse Park. Rodney's was even better that I had hoped when I booked the reservation. Everybody in our group of five ordered steaks and they were all excellent cuts and prepared perfectly. The sides and desserts were on par with our entrees. Lastly, our server Julie and the entire staff were off the charts nice. Highly recommend.

Everything about this restaurant was delightful! From the minute you walk in the door you are wrapped in the cozy ambience of what I believe is a historic home and are welcomed by friendly staff who make you feel instantly welcomed. The service, food and drinks were nothing short of perfect, and the chef came out to check on everyone! It is definitely a rare find! Can’t wait to go back!

My husband and I celebrated our ninth anniversary with dinner. We started with a baked brie with shrimp, followed by a roasted veggie salad and block cut strip with a peppercorn sauce and brussel sprouts. When we arrived, we had confetti on our table and a card signed by the restaurant. We love going to Rodney's when we have a chance to. The personal touches and great service and food is so worth it.

This is our second time dining at Rodney's while visiting Lexington. We eaten at a number of great restaurants in the area, but Rodney's has become our favorite. The combination of drinks, food and service is off the charts. We started with the artichoke dip, and shared the house salad (which was definitely farm-to-table). My wife enjoyed the grouper and I had the tuna special(cooked to perfection. The specialty cocktail list hailed a fall creation, mulled over maple, while I opted for the Rodney's Old Fashion. Just a super experience. Our server Julie was just amazing. She waited on us last time, and remembered our order back then! her enthusiasm and joy, pervaded the entire experience. Ask for her! But all the servers are great there. The venue is really nice as well, an old home remodeled to give you a warm dining experience. Go to Rodney's you wont regret it!

The bread and olive oil dip were the delicious beginning of our meal. We enjoyed salads, lamb chops, sole, filet, and grouper, along with a fine Malbec. Erica was a wonderful server, and added to our enjoyment. Rodney checked on us when we finished, and it was nice to see him again. A very pleasant evening was had by all.

Food was not Chef quality for such a high ranked restaurant. The meal wasn’t any better than a chain restaurant using food service ingredients.
Service and atmosphere were nice but food was lackluster in taste and in presentation.
We were very disappointed for a meal costing nearly $200 with app and 2 cocktails. Will not go back.

Unforgettable experience! We have eaten in castles and have dined extensively throughout the United States. If you are in the Lexington, KY area and are looking for a fine dining experience with a romantic ambiance (provided from the 1840 house the restaurant is in) go to Rodney's. We started with toasted ravioli with fresh marinara that was divine, followed by caprese salad with heirloom tomatoes and fresh, creamy burrata cheese and a balsamic dressing that left us in amazement. The steaks were phenomenal. We had a filet and a bone in ribeye. The sauces were spectacular. So grateful we found Chef Rodney in Georgetown. We would have missed out on the best dining experience we ever had. Our server, Laura, was kind, helpful and truly a joy. Our table was decorated for our anniversary, and they gave us an anniversary card. Chef Rodney came out and mingled with his guests. Where else could you go and have this kind of foodie heaven? Don't miss out on this place! A gem in Georgetown! Thank you, Chef, Elizabeth and staff for an incredible dining experience we will never forget!

100% pleases with our celebration. Julie was our server and she is personable and makes the best recommendations. Food was spot on. My wife got the shrimp and scallops and I had to steal some shrimp. I had the filet ….. perfectly cooked. When we were almost finished up, Rodney came out and chatted. Very kind and genuine. This is out go to spot for special occasions.
