Wonderful cuisine with imaginative menu and LOCAL sourcing. Interior is amazing. The historic little building was once the billiard room annex for a hotel! Great woody interior and some historic carpentry work. Lovely intimate atmosphere.

It was with great anticipation that I ordered a regular black and white milkshake and my husband a regular cookies and cream. The help was pleasant, but couldn't agree as to who was going to make the shakes. Upon settling the matter, the shakes were completed in record time and we were on our way. What a let down. Neither of us could tell that ice cream was an ingredient in our respective shakes. Mine was little better than chocolate milk and my husbands was unidentifiable. After several sips we just trashed them. $10.00 thrown away. Save your money.

Located in Historic Lexington, Virginia, Southern Inn Restaurant is a successful mix of casual, but elegant dining. Proprietors George (chef) and Sue Ann Huger offer a contemporary, seasonal menu utilizing local produce, meats and other products, as well as fresh seafood and in-house baked goods.
Went there for dinner. Service was prompt and friendly. Oyster appetizer was excellent although a bit small. Great sauce and about 5 small but perfectly done oysters. Liver entree was large with 3 nice slices of liver. Onions a nice touch, bacon would have been if the strips were done just a bit more. My wife got the mozzarella appetizer that was also very good. She opted for the sirloin entree. Great potatoes, fresh green beans and tender beef. Once the mozzarella was generous my wife ate less than half of her entree. We asked to have it boxed up. The server returned to tell us someone had tossed it out. Did not offer to replace or comp the dish. Lots of good dining places in town that would have done the right thing. Next time in town will not give them another opportunity to trash our food

Pronto is a modern and airy caffe offering delicious LavAzza coffee and espresso, fresh baked goods (bread, croissants, pastries), sandwiches, salads, soup, and, of course, amazing homemade gelati. Check out Pronto on facebook and twitter at ProntoGelateria. Open 8am-8pm everyday (except Tuesdays-- closed Tuesdays). Pronto opened in Oct. 2012 and is owned and operated by Lexington natives Francesco and Meridith Benincasa.
We stopped at Pronto for my iced coffee and some baked goods for my husband. Friendly staff, clean and bright interior. Pronto was a very popular spot the afternoon we were there, especially the ice cream area. We loved the small town feel Pronto....the antithesis of a national chain coffee shop.

Upscale Casual Dining in the Heart of Downtown Lexington, Virginia.Featuring local products with a Southern flair. Intimate, casual atmosphere. Serving Brunch, Lunch and Dinner. Also offers catering. Reservations Recommended!
We had lunch at the Bistro. The restaurant was crowded with a large group that filled one side of the room, and was very loud. We ordered the oyster sandwich, which was okay, but not as flavorful as we expected. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. I would go back again when it was not so crowded to see if our experience would be better.

TNT's has daily specials for lunch and dinner and a full menu for all meals including breakfast. Huge servings, you will not go away hungry. Everyone is very friendly and helpful, excellent customer service. And did I mention the homemade desserts? Too many to list but the cheesecake is to die for! You cannot get a better value for your dollar, very reasonable prices!

The menu is both diverse and offers a variety of flavors....not a dull deli style shop. Service is friendly and while it was busy when we were there...we ordered relatively quickly and the food came out in a reasonable time frame. Both indoor and outdoor seating. Great location. Cool old style bookstore a couple of stores down.

Nick's Italian Kitchen has a strong local reputation for their homemade Italian foods.
I've enjoyed their pizzas , calzones, and subs. Today I had a Cheesesteak made the way I like it and it was great. Special orders are no problem.
The staff is Italian and the food is authentic. They like kids too. I say the prices are average for pizzerias.
