Cheapside B and G is downtown and has an older inside bar area, and a couple more modern (I use the word advisedly) added on, with some outside seating and some upstairs on a deck-like arrangement. The music throbs which means you probably could plot the death of the planet at your table without anyone knowing but you might not be able to hear afterwards. That said, the music mix is eclectic and good. The margarita was fine, nothing exceptional, as were the ribs and the chicken quesadilla. Half a rack of ribs is a lot of meat, so plan accordingly. Beer choices were not outstanding. I would classify this a great place to hang with a bunch of buds interested in some serious drinking or a large and loud girls' night out sort of place.

We stopped here after visiting the Lexington Farmer's market and were very pleased. The bar setting was great, they have a huge outside area too, and the service was excellent. We shared fish tacos and a bean burger and both were well prepared and presented. The menu is quite large, they have craft beers (and Kentucky Bourbons) and it is worth a return visit to try the dinner menu.

While staying for 1 night in Lexington, we stopped by for a drink, since they have a neat outside bar on the streetside of the restaurant. The drink prices were average, and so were the drinks.

Went for a drive to Lexington with my wife on our Anniversary. This place has one of the best outdoor sitting area and very good food options for vegetarians. They do need to fix their bathroom configuration though - there was no separation / door between the 2 toilets :)
