Since I had what I thought was terrible Lasagna at Caproni's I thought I would thy theirs. Not the best I have ever had but definitely better. The surroundings were nice though crowded and noisy. Service was good. A safe bet for good food.

Magee's bakery years ago use to be located in downtown Maysville, Kentucky. They moved out to Orangeburg Road for a bigger space and to be closer to their home. It is well worth the drive to go to their shop. There is no place to sit down but the transparent puddings makes the trip special. They have cookies, cakes, elephant ears, in the winter mincemeat pies and other treats.
They are noted for their transparent puddings which have been featured in Southern Living. Not sure how the recipe originated but saw a similar recipe in a cook book from the 1600s at Gunston Hall (George Mason's home) in Fairfax, VA. I never pass up the opportunity to go there whenever I am in the area. Stock up for a picnic!

Chandlers is in the heart of historic Maysville in a cozy history building. It feels like eating at a relatives home with a raised area, central large tables, and window seating.
All variety of southern cooking is available from steaks to grits, collard greens to cole slaw. Deserts are seductively gooey. Families have always been present along with couples on their night out. It’s a relaxed atmosphere for all hungry folks.

We visited this cafe for coffee and also found great pastries and house made breads. The coffee cake was outrageously good.

My wife was recently injured, so we were looking to take a drive and a stop at a nice restaurant. We chose this place, regretfully. Since they portray themselves to be an Italian restaurant, we decided to order two Italian dishes. I ordered the lasagna which was described as having layers of cheese. Sounded good but turned out to be a gooey mess and not very tasty. My wife thought it tasted weird. She ordered spaghetti and meat balls. The spaghetti and sauce tasted fine but the meat balls looked like they had lots of filler of some kind. She did not finish them. Like so many restaurants that have been in business for many years, this place seems to be getting tired although the setting next to the river and the railroad track was neat. We will not be returning.

Close to my hotel and combined with a great looking menu made for a pleasant dining experience. The grilled chicken breast Cajun style was great, but a trifle overdone and combined with a zucchini/tomato dish, baked potato and an excellent draft beer made for a memorable supper. Laura facilitated my meal and answered my questions about the menu. Very friendly also. Beautiful, spacious and tastefully decorated eatery. Look forward to a return visit.

Just a great local pub. Great service . Good beer selection along with free peanuts and hot popcorn. If u need more decent pub grub. Great place to eat, drink and discuss life with locals.

No where else in the world can you get a BIG BOY hamburger. It is one of my all time favorite craves. That hamburger is like no other. They have other meals too- breakfast bar, salad bar, pies to take home, but friends, for me, it is all about the BIG BOY burger. That's the only thing I go for- well maybe not the only thing. There are the fries, onion rings, cole slaw and chocolate shakes, too.

We stayed at the French Quarter Inn but their breakfast didn't interest us after reading reviews of it. We found this darling little diner and each had omelets. Excellent! Not greasy. Toast was good and our waiter kept coffee coming and coming.... We will definitely eat here again whenever we're back in town.

We met some of my family there and we had an appetizer and drinks while they were eating. The service was excellant. Good place for steaks.
