Depending on how much you want to spend, in Lexington you might want to look into a la lucie, Dudley's, Giuseppe's Ristorante Italiano & Bar, Merrick Inn and Jonathan at Gratz Park, to name a few. Outside of Lexington, Beaumont Inn in Harrodsburg and Holly Hill Inn in Midway are some that come to mind.
thanks for the ideas, I'm not worried about the price i just need somewhere that serves chicken and steak.
One other thought in Louisville. You may want to think about Captain's Quarters. It's about 7 miles from downtown Louisville on River Road. It's a very pretty drive along the river. Takes about 15 minutes.
The restaurant sits on the river and has a really nice deck on the back. If the weather is nice, dine outside and watch the boats come & go. On the weekends, they have live music around a big outdoor bar.
Here's the menu:
Here are some photos of the place:
Buck's is closing, isn't it SeaGrover? I have not been to Rivue, but my friends loved it. Top of the Galt House with stunning views. L and N Wine Bistro is in an old house and is very romantic. They have an outside dining patio, too. I really love Varanese. It's becoming one of Louisville's favorite places. They have a casual, yet nice feel with a fountain wall and live jazz. As mentioned above, Le Relais is a lovely French restaurant at the small Bowman Field airport. Loads of charm! Food is superb. Why not schedule a ride around town on a biplane afterward?
In Lexington, my favorite is Gratz Park Inn...Jonathan's. Always superb.
I remember reading on Robin's forum that the owner of Buck's was retiring. But I don't know if that means that the restaurant is going to close or if someone else will keep it going.
