Heirloom - Midway Ratings and Reviews
Appetizers, entrees and desserts outstanding assortment of flavors for the mouth to appreciate. All presentations were superb. Best complete meal I've had in years. Just the best.
We frequently visit Heirloom when we have a special occasion. Their food is outstanding. It's honestly the best we've ever had. We always order a meal, wine and dessert is a must. It never disappoints! The uniqueness of the dishes make you come back for more. It was exciting to see a party that was seated behind us start eating and passing the plates around to taste everything since they couldn't believe how amazing everything tasted. They saw us get dessert, as we were seated prior to them, and inquired about what we had ordered. I told them and then said, you will need to save room for dessert for sure!
As always, our experience at Heirloom was the best
We come from Michigan and always make a point to get to Heirloom for a fabulous meal. Great food, great service, great atmosphere, always a great time.
Heirloom is an absolute MUST when dining in Midway
Our group of 3 had lunch at Heirloom on a busy Saturday during Keeneland's 2016 Spring Meet. We truly could not have had a better experience. Our table in a window gave us great views of the afternoon activities in downtown Midway as well as the tastefully decorated interior. Our server was exceptional, her extensive knowledge of the craft beer selection as well as the lunch menu was impressive.....she made all of the lunch entrees sound so delicious, which made our decisions difficult! We chose the fish and chips, the buttermilk-brined fried chicken, and the chicken livers with ricotta ravioli. All were perfectly plated and scrumptious, but the chicken livers were over the top outstanding! Go to Heirloom, you will not be disappointed!!

Maybe the best lamb dish I've had. Smoked quinoa? Outrageous!
Always a great place to eat!
We eat here often - sometimes for a special occasion, sometimes to entertain friends, sometimes just to enjoy a meal out. The food is always delicious and the service is "the best." The chefs pride themselves on creativity; use of fresh, seasonal fruits, vegetables, fish and meats; and amazing desserts. I have never talked to anyone who has had a meal at Heirloom who has been disappointed!
Food and service were outstanding
We were there for a birthday celebration. The day was beautiful so we opted to dine outside. Our server was courteous, well versed on the menu choices and gave us just the right amount of attention. The food was delicious and prepared and served in an elegant manner.

This is an outstanding restaurant. I highly recommend it. Creative and exceptionally prepared menu delivered with friendly, relaxed but professional service.
Central Kentucky winner!
We selected this restaurant as a midpoint between Louisville and Danville for a college sister mini-reunion. An excellent choice. We loved the food and the food choices, drinks were available, desserts were decadently good, and the service was outstanding. With nearby shopping, easy access from the interstate, parking outside the front door, we enjoyed a terrific day. And the restaurant might even let us return!!!
Heirloom is easily one of the best restaurants anywhere. What a gem to have in central Kentucky! The food is creative, beautiful and delicious. I love this place!

Best food in the state
We are spoiled in Louisville for restaurants. Even so, with my love of Mayan Cafe and Jack Fry's and on and on, I really believe the consistently best food in the state is at Heirloom. Their autumn bisque is perfection. The buttermilk fried chicken, the burger and the fish and fries are the same. Our last visit was Saturday, March 5 for our wedding anniversary. The service was impeccable, my manhattan was lovely, food was great and the triple citrus dessert was perfect. We will return again and again and would recommend Heirloom to anyone.
Excellent service with incredible food!
My husband and I were greatly surprised by the fresh ingredients, generous portions, and beautiful presentation of food. The server was helpful in making suggestions, all were delicious! Elegant atmosphere, high back booths made for cozy date night. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Great Post Va!entine Dinner
Due to several factors we did not dine out on Valentines Day. However, the Thursday after worked well for us so we finally made the trip to Midway to dine at Heirloom. We were welcomed and seated immediately. Our server was pleasant, knowledgeable, and efficient. For drinks, my wife enjoyed a glass of 1000 Stories Zinfandel, and I tried a generous pour of Basil Hayden bourbon. Our dinners were superb. My wife had the beef fillet and I had an appetizer of lamb meatballs on rice grits that was generous enough to qualify as a main course. Finally, the dessert, a lemon tart topped with fresh raspberries and sauce completed a perfect dinner. We think we have found a new favorite restaurant in the Bluegrass.
A night out for me is a rare occasion, especially on a special night like Valentine's day, and often I am underwhelmed by what is delivered when I do get the chance night out. The cards were stacked against us. The snow was falling, the kids didn't get to bed on time, slippery roads made us debate even making the trip. We finally walked through the doors, almost an hour late for our reservations, and we were greeted with a warm smile and a 'glad you're here safe'. From that point on, all I can say is perfection is what was delivered! The menu was small with well thought out courses that made it almost impossible to choose what to have. Everything sounded so great. And great doesn't do justice to how it was presented and tasted. From the amuse to dessert they knocked it out of the park. Service was wonderful and not just from our server, the entire staff showed they care about every aspect of the restaurant, just about everyone checked on our experience. I work in the industry and my wife can tell you I am super critical of every aspect of my experiences when I go out. Impossible is how she would probably describe it. I could find no faults this evening. I often recommend Heirloom to people who are looking for a great experience, even though I haven't been able to go in over four years. Talk about reassurance to keep that recommendation going! Well done Heirloom!
I could eat Heirloom everday
Everything was absolutely amazing from start to finish. I can not wait to go back to this restaurant and try more. I had zero complaints. The time between appetizer and main course was a tad slow but I didn't notice since my fiancé and I were talking and telling stories. They gave us complimentary dessert for the delay anyway!
Dessert is the star
We've dined at Heirloom several times over the past few years and the quality of the food is generally very good with a set of items the chef is accomplished with. And the wait staff is very good and accommodating. But the desserts may be the new star here. The pastry chef is making his (her?) own ice creams and they are creative, to say the least: try the "Smores" dessert (I know, I know) made with smoked vanilla ice cream. Don't criticize until you're tried it. Alongside the Graham ice cream. Yeah, as in Cracker. My advice if you've never been and want to have fun with your friends? Go, order wine or your favorite cocktails (they do make a respectable Manhattan), play with the appetizers and desserts. You'll leave with a mouthful of interesting and fun tastes.

Terrific as usual!
My wife and I just adore Heirloom! The food is always amazing. At this lunch we dined on the spinach salad and the fried chicken. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Heirloom is the Best!!
I had the rack of lamb which was cooked to perfection with rustic carrots. The Cab our waiter recommended was very good. I always have a great dining experience at Heriloom
Absolutely the very BEST steak we have ever eaten.
Outstanding food. Our waitress (pregnant) was wonderful.
Dinner at Heirloom
Have been to Heirloom numerous times. Food is always excellent, as is the service. We will continue to eat there, and love to take guests there. Outstanding eatery!
Awesome, adult only atmosphere!
Always a great meal here with the BEST steak. THE BEST in Lex. Also try the cheese plate appetizer. Never noisy, and never any kids. Our favorite place for a special dinner.
Charm, ambiance, delish!
A+++++. This small-town gem boasts seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients with a very inventive American Southern menu. Delicious and healthy. Highly recommended!
As usual, the food was wonderful and service excellent.
What can I say?
Again my visit was the same as before- wonderful. The server Beau was excellent.
We had a delicious dinner here....and I became a butternut squash fan too due to the delicious salad. My husband and I both had the special which was bone-in Berkshire pork tenderloin. They offered great wine - we had a 2013 Elouan pinot noir (Oregon). The portions were generous enough that I had leftovers for the next day's lunch. Highly recommend the drive to Midway!
Great food, excellent service, small, pricey. Menu changes with the availability of local items. The use of butternut squash was excellent, butternut squash bisque, very nice. The sea bass was very good, a generous portion, served on a bed of corn, squash and other things. Flovors were excellent. In the winter, it gets very cold every time the door opens as they don't have a 2-door system, get a table in the back but it has small town charm.
I wanted to treat my mother to a quite, gourmet meal and the Heirloom nailed it:-)

Foods and staffs were completely perfect. This restaurant should be used with wife, girlfriends or special friends. Really nice and I think one of the best restaurant in Lexington area.
you can never go wrong
I ordered the rack of lamb that our waiter Bo recommended and it was heavenly! Heirloom is always a good choice.
