Closed. In its place is Pies and Pints (good pizza and above average beer selection). Also right around the corner is Hop Cat, largest tap selection in Lexington.

This is a nice restaurant located in the center of downtown Lexington, not far from my place. They have great food, but it is somewhat pricey and slightly upscale, so I am not a frequent visitor. The service is what I would call "stiff." They don't know much about any of the beers and it's normal for your waiter(tress) to mysteriously be changed in the middle of your meal. The beer selection is very lacking. Very few bottle selections, even fewer good ones on tap. Nice atmosphere and nice restaurant. Don't go here for good beer.

A place to go more for food than beer selection. Somewhat upscale restaurant, although the feeling is a little pretentious, like a three-star restaurant that thinks it is five-star. The decor is pleasant - a renovated downtown building, lots of brass, heavy drapes and antique paintings and photographs on the walls. Lots of partitions so that the dining areas are cozy. Menu selections are nice, I had the broiled scallops which were not overcooked, as is so often the case.

The waitstaff looked like they were all college students, which is not surpising since Lexington is a college town. My waiter was efficient and pleasant, although a little informal for the surroundings.

The tap selection was fairly weak, mostly B-M-C. Bottled was fair, with the "usual suspects" imports. The seasonal was Great Lakes Christmas ale, which I followed with a Salvator.

Overall, a pleasant place with good food, a nice atmosphere and a passable beer selection.

This is one of the most beautiful pub settings I've seen in the US. Located in the Victorian Square Shoppes, a very nicely preserved and restored Victorian block, the pub itself is set out nicely with lots of dark oak, brass, and tile. There are nice stairs leading to a second floor area and the seating areas are nicely broken up and made intimate.

The beer selection is unfortunately limited to afew good brews on tap and a fairly short list of bottled beer. This a pricely venue so the pint charges are a bit steep. This spot is about atmosphere more than the quantity and quality of beer. Service is somewhat stiff and a bit formal.
