We have dined at Rodney's many times either with or without friends and always have had the best of the best food. Either dining outside on the patio or inside the atmosphere has been relaxing and fun. While dining there on this particular occasion it was noted by the waitress that there were dietary needs by someone in our group and Rodney prepared food for our friend. Very impressive. We can't say enough and we definitely recommend Rodney's to others. Rodney's is the best that has come to Georgetown.
Thanks again
Linda

What can I say....we just enjoy the food here. It’s our go to place in Georgetown for dinner. Tonight, for me it was just appetizers and soup. The oysters, crab bisque soup, and lobster were perfect. We have never had a bad meal or experience here...best reason...#the chef won’t allow it.

All around first class dining experience. Restaurant is in a beautiful historic home. Lovely decor. Exceptional service. Vast libation offerings. Wonderfully complete dining menu. Everything we have ever ordered here has been superb. Where else can you dine that the chef/owner, Rodney, personally comes out to talk with you several times during our evening. We were a group of eight and everyone was very pleased & raving about their meal.

A nice merging of “southern” fare and fine dining. The food was excellent. The pork shoulder was fall-apart tender, the duck was crispy on the outside and juicy inside with a reduction that was amazing, and the lamb was perfectly cooked. Flavorful sides, well presented, great service, good wine list. Not cheap but definitely worth it!

Fabulous experience. Four of us had dinner that included lobster tail appetizer, caprese salad with heirloom tomatoes, Cajun shrimp and grits, crab cake, bone in 16 oz ribeye. Every dish was cooked and presented extraordinary. Our server Kat was delightful. We are experienced diners and this was one of the top 5 meals ever. Thank you Chef Rodney.

Brought visiting friends to Georgetown and Rodney's never disappoints. It has a menu with many choices for all types of tastes. Using Open table for a reservation makes planning dinning so much easier than "Calling Around"

Food not worth the price, filet was less than 1/2 inch thick and crab cake was fishy tasting.

We had eaten at various restaurants over a period of 4 days. My friend spontaneously said,
"I believe that this is the best food yet that we have had."

Hint-the table for two really needed more elbow room.

Outstanding! In the reservation I made I indicated it was my wife's birthday. When we were taken to our table there was a birthday card waiting for her. Rodney came out to greet us and wish her a Happy Birthday! The menu is terrific, the server (Kat) was wonderful. She made great recommendations, did not rush us through the courses.

Our dinners were cooked to perfection - roast duck for me, shrimp/scallop combination for my wife. We shared the Sinful Chocolate Cake for dessert and it is appropriately named.

It was a wonderful dining experience.

we enjoyed dining at Rodney's very much. the only complaint I could possible have was the mashed potatoes were barely warm, which I know can easily happen. The sweet potato slaw was also good, but I cannot eat spicy. Had I known I would not have ordered it. Recommend noting on the menu what items are spicy, as not everyone enjoys spicy food.

The waitress told me she could have brought me a replacement for the slaw if I had told her. Not a big deal, we enjoyed the meal very much. Georgetown is lucky to have Rodney's

Rodney's was a choice I made from the internet , and it was certainly worth it! We drove from Westfield In, to spend a day in Georgetown, and time in Lexington.We had a wonderful dining experience at Rodney's. Quiet atmosphere, attentive waiter, but not hovering. My husband ordered the potatoe soup, and stripe bass, and I ordered the wedge salad and appetizer size lobster tail with cognac sauce. The smoked tomatoe dressing on the wedge was delicious. We both enjoyed our food very much. Will come back again, maybe around Thanksgiving time! We have already recommended it to Two friends!

Dimly lit with tall dark walls makes for a cozy romantic atmosphere which is ideal for a soft lovey conversation and a chance to feed the one you love with the most delectable food. Try the lobster bisque, crab cake, warm goat cheese salad, and the red curry chicken. ❤❤❤
