“Nice Food and Good Service”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

Ate here on a Friday evening on recommendation of our B&B host who booked a table for us. Just as well as the restaurant was full and turning people away.
We were seated quickly and service was very efficient.
For starters we shared a Greek Salad. Everything tasted nice and fresh. For mains my wife had the herb grilled trout and I had the blackened chicken & pasta. Both were very tasty and well cooked with portions of a good size.
Well worth a visit.

“Great meal”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 via mobile

Great dinner, excellent service! We were driving through on our way home in NC and decided to stop in Lexington...we read some reviews of Southern Inn and decided to try it! Great meal, my his and had duck and I had liver...perfectly prepared, and well plated...great favors and at a more than reasonable price. The restaurant was bustling and smelled great when we got there. Interesting wine list...with some great choices. Highly recommend if timid on you route, and worth going out of your way

“Good home cooking!”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Ordered a couple glasses of red. We don't normally get the same food, but both decided on the duck (a little over done for what we ordered, but larger portion than Bistro) and it was very good. I had a Caesar salad to start. Great finish with a chocolate tort, best of the weekend. All desserts looked great. We still preferred the entrees we had at Bistro and Brix.

“perfect service, delicious food, inexpensive”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

Mt wife and i had lunch at the Southern inn on October 30. We had a very light lunch consisting of garden rolls and an antipasti plate which we shared. It was all delicious, and served within a few minutes after ordering. If there was one item that could use attention it was the wine list. Lexington is a place where one should expect to be offered a good selection of Virginia wines. The Southern Inn wine list had very few wines by the glass, I think only one of them from the region, and few wines by the bottle from Virginia. That should be corrected. The people in that area should be very proud of the regional wines and should feature them.
Nevertheless, we loved the place, very comfortable and attractive, and we will return. The bill for two, without wine, was $20.

“Lovely place.........”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

We had dinner here on the recommendation of our B & B hostess and it was excellent. Lovely food from a reasonably short menu, my pork with pear chutney was first class. The dining room manages to very nicely combine a lively friendly atmosphere with rather smart décor, proper linen and fresh flowers.
