Cribb's Sandwich and Sweet Shop

Reviewed By wndrwmn - South Carolina

Cribb's has been a staple in Lexington for years. Their warm customer service and delicious food have kept people coming back for more. Located in a historic building just off Main Steet, they serve up various soups, sandwiches, baked goods and more. We recently had the chicken salad sandwich and egg salad sandwich. Both were very good!

Momma Rabbit's Nibbles And Sips

Welcome to Momma Rabbit's! Let us introduce ourselves. We are eight siblings: Will, Sarah Grace, Spencer, James, Webb, John, George, and Richard Allen. We grew up as an agrarian homeschooling family learning to grow crops organically, along with raising sheep, goats, and free-range chickens with the help of our guard llama, Uncle Bob. We always wanted to expand our family business together, where we could combine our love of whole foods, with a desire to serve with family-friendly Southern hospitality. By combining our resources and hard work, along with a modest inheritance from our grandmother (nicknamed Momma Rabbit), we explored various opportunities, while gaining experience in the restaurant business, along with Will and Sarah Grace honing their skills by graduating from culinary school. As a solid first step toward our ultimate vision, we bought Everyday Gourmet in December, 2014. Since then, we have expanded our menu offerings, sourcing more of our ingredients locally and directly. Building on this success, we are pleased to have you as our guest at Momma Rabbit's Nibbles and Sips! Whether it's coming in for unique and appetizing lunchtime fare, allowing us to cater your next event, picking up a prepared Home Supper, having a relaxed evening to enjoy our light nibbles, dinner specials, and distinctive desserts and beverages, or joining us for weekend brunch, we hope you thoroughly enjoy your time with our family and come back to see us often!

Enjoyed a great fresh lunch with a friend. I ate the chicken cordon bleu wrap with fresh fruit. It was really tasty and the fruit was better than expected. My friend had the Lewis and she said it was tasty too! The atmosphere was nice and our waitress did a great job! Will definitely be back!

Libby's of Lexington

Reviewed By EbonySunshine - Chicago, Illinois, United States

I came in the middle of the day for lunch and the place was bustling. Despite this, everyone I encountered seemed to be energized by it. I saddled up to the bar and witnessed first hand how the kitchen staff tending to the incoming orders and the servers worked together to keep diners happy. My simple lunch was a meal of mozzarella sticks and a garden salad. It was good but after seeing what kept coming out of the kitchen, I'll have to bring my appetite and come again!

Tired of the same old fare and tried this place. Asian variety with some standards like Orange chicken (very good) and General Taos’s . Salads were good and the Tempura veggies were great for a table appetizer. Philadelphia roll very good and excellent egg drop soup. Fried rice and veggie lo mein were very good. Definite return. Only down took a full hour to get entree. Wait staff attentive.

Great Cajun food! The spice was not too much - just right. The prices were very reasonable for the quality and size of the portions. I could eat the creamy smoked corn every day! The Cajun egg rolls were so creative and very good. There were ten of us and every single person raved about their food.

Contemporary American Italian Cuisine. Handcrafted salads, chicken, pasta, pizza, seafood, steaks and veal. Extensive wine list and gluten free menu. Kids welcome. Full service catering and private dining. Open for lunch and dinner

Reviewed By teri7478 - Columbia, South Carolina

Our family eats here often and usually enjoy a great meal, but today was a huge disappointment. I had the Travinia Fettuccini, a dish of fettuccine Alfredo with "wood grilled" chicken on top. The chicken was way over-cooked, chewy, and as dry as shoe leather....MoreI would like to apologize for your meal. Freshness is very important to us, and your feed back only helps us get better.

Hudson's Smokehouse BBQ

Reviewed By Villagesre - The Villages, Florida

Went here after a school play, 6 adults, 1 teenager. Three ordered buffet, no problem, had plenty of choices. The others all ordered off menu. Chicken livers, a salad, brisket sandwich, one other item. All of the ordered items came out one at a time, the three eating off buffet were done and getting their desert when the brisket sandwich came out last. And truthfully, I think it was pulled pork sandwich. Every brisket all over the country In places I have eaten, the brisket is sliced?! Not impressed at all, just average food, etc.

My husband, daughter and I love "Japanese food" we've dined at a lot of Hibachi restaurants. Our daughter has been requesting sushi since she was 2. Anyhow.... we were first disappointed that they don't have Japanese sodas (daughters request) our pot stickers were okay. The crab Rangoon was okay as well. The children's shrimp hibachi was good and my husband said his steak hibachi was alright. The yumm... yummy sauce was very thick and more like bad flavored mayo. My chicken teriyaki flavor wasn't bad but the chicken was very crispy. I love all the veggies that typically come with the hibachi meals but all mine came with was onion, zucchini and string carrots :( my husband ordered a Sopporo and it was flat so he had to order different beer. My Thai Strawberry Lemonade was very blah.... No flavor at all. We definitely won't be dining here again and couldn't recommend it to friends.
