Probably more of a breakfast spot.

The food was great, as was the service.


Seating was cramped, I mean really tight in the booth. Should have asked to sit outside. Bathrooms weren’t the freshest smelling. Food was good - nothing crazy delicious and I felt it was a bit pricey. Friend had the Bloody Mary and said it was okay but was not a fan of the Mimosa.

Great breakfast! Everything cooked perfectly....best French toast I have ever had!!


I am going to chalk this up to Covid shortages--in staffing, and in menu items. But the "Lemon Blueberry Waffle" had no lemon, only a sprinkling of blueberries, seemed about as high-quality as a frozen grocery waffle, and arrived cold. It also cost $12, which is just comedy gold. I also took my friend's biscuit because the waffle was so unsatifactory, and it was as hard and cold as a hockey puck. Won't be eating there again.

Good food. Good service. Reasonable prices. Clean. Pleasant ambiance.

Fat Man Reviews

Food Fun Adventure Saturday took Fat Man Reviews to the Lexington Diner in Lexington, KY. This is a local spot that serves typical diner fare including burgers, sandwiches and breakfast all day.I started with a Diner Delight. This drink was very refreshing, the blueberry vodka comes through very well. The orange juice not overwhelming, but the drink is very sweet, they top it off with Sierra Mist. This was a very well-made drink.We tried the Diner Beer Cheese, it is made with Country Boy Shotgun Wedding beer. The cheese was fluffy and had a weird mouth feel, it had subtle heat and is served with carrots, celery and a pretzel. The pretzel was like a bread stick, and it seemed fresh a little doughy in the middle and not a ton of a crunchy on the outside.For my entrée I tried the Chicken Cordon Blue the chicken was fried well and was crunchy, but it was pretty dry and lacked any flavor. The potatoes tased old, and they were dry as well. The gravy was pasty a little gritty, and again it tasted old. The cheesy garlic okay, but the cheese was sprinkled on top barely melted and there was not much of a garlic taste. The potatoes and the grits were not as hot as I expected them to be either.My fiancé tried the Diner burger. This had lettuce, tomato, cheese and pickles on it. It was okay but tasted almost like a frozen burger and lacked flavor and seasoning over all. The fries under done and a little soggy, but they were seasoned correctly.Lexington Diner offers a full bar, there is no draft beer and there are a few TVs to catch a game on. The outside patio area looks pretty cool, but does not offer any shade except for 3 tables closer to the restaurant. The service was excellent and everyone was super nice. Based on the menu, the restaurant puts a lot of emphasis on breakfast and brunch. The Fat Man says that Lexington Diner is not Fat Man Approved.


Some of the food was not prepared well, but the service was excellent.

In our experience, most places get off to a good start and slowly fizzle out but Lexington Diner gets better and better.One of our favorite places to eat. Good Food, Good Service, Outdoor Seating.Some of our favorites: Burger, Grilled Fish, Chicken Tender Salad, Buffalo Chicken Wrap and Potato Salad.


We went here for brunch on a Sunday for my daughter’s birthday. The menu is full of great choices and the food was phenomenal! Best brunch I have had. Lovely cocktails as well, many choices perfect for brunch. Would highly recommend.

Seated quickly, service was good and food was pretty good.


This little place is tucked into a small strip mall and is a local favorite. They have a small bar in addition to booths, tables, and outdoor seating. Be warned, you can't get alcohol on Sunday morning until after 11am! Perhaps I just ordered the wrong thing, but I wasn't impressed with the food. I got the sunrise burrito, which was in a corn tortilla (yuk). The only thing I could see or taste was the chorizo sausage, although I think I spotted some cheddar. No eggs or peppers in sight. The garlic cheddar grits were good. The wait person also took forever to bring me my check after I said I was ready to leave (and they weren't that busy). It wasn't horrible, but there are definitely much better breakfast and brunch spots in Lexington!

The food was very delicious. Huge potions. Every things was hot and fresh. Micaela was very friendly and very helpful and attentive. We will definitely come back here to eat. I got then hot brown omelet and my husband got the Denver omelet.


Went for brunch. Enjoyed sitting outside. Food was fresh and delivered hot! Service was fine.
