Food scene
Haywood's restaurant and the Georges Hotel occupy a recently exquisitely renovated late 18th century Federalist style brick building in Lexington town center. This is one of the most expensive places to eat in Lexington but the food is excellent and the setting luxurious. There is an active bar scene on weekends with piano and music.

Since 1932 an institution in Lexington and by far the oldest continuously operating restaurant in Lexington. Long a favorite of the college alumni crowd and locals alike it has been significantly remodeled and upgraded since a fire gutted the original building about ten years ago. The food is fresh, well prepared and presented -excellent quality. It is a very reasonably priced restaurant for the quality of the venue and food. There is an active bar scene on weekends and college events.

The best upscale bar scene in Lexington with excellent food and service. The building is a very nicely renovated 19th century brick building with attached Hotel (The Georges). There is outdoor seating as well a very attractive indoor venue and bar. Food is served for lunch and dinner and is best described a bistro or upscale bar food. Prices are reasonable for the quality of the experience.

Since the roaring 1970"s the quintessential college bar/restaurant in Lexington. It is across the street from a very attractive small city park called Hopkins Green near the center of town and close to both colleges. Once a loud, rough and rowdy place new management about five years ago significantly improved the quality of the food ,the venue and the service. There a less of the college crowd these days and more locals and visitors, some with children. The food is good and inexpensive and the bar is still classic but more mellow than in years past.

By far the BEST Asian restaurant in Lexington and reasonably priced. The owners and operators are from Thailand and the food is authentic and at times very spicy. The restaurant is not open on Monday or Tuesday and lunch is served only Friday thru Sunday.

One of four microbreweries in the Lexington area, in my opinion this is the best. The scenic view of the nearby Blue Ridge mountains and adjacent farm land is spectacular. The venue is modern and interesting, dog and kid friendly and the beer is good , pricey but worth it. There are occasional music and food truck activities on weekends- visit website of Facebook for details.
