    Willson-Walker House: Don't Miss a Meal at the Willson-Walker House

    by butterflykizzez04 Updated Apr 4, 2011
    Willson-Walker House built 1820 view from Main Str

    My dau., niece and I entered this 1820 elegant home, mainly just to see its beauty. It was a lovely restaurant. You go up the beautiful staircase in the enter to go to the restrooms, I was tempted just to excuse myself to see more of the home..lol

    We were seated promptly. The room was elegantly decorated and the linen, dishes, glassware gorgeous. My girls were totally impressed and immediately starting asking rules about ettique...thank goodness.
    They are both nine.

    The restaurant was totally lovely and food good, highly recommend and would eat there again.

    Favorite Dish: The ordered the chicken and fries off the children's menu for only $4.95 each and it included the drinks..they ordered "Shirley Temples". I had soup and salad. It was a very nice "Southwestern Potato Soup" and House garden salad with Champagne Vinagrette dressing, very good. The check was only $17.45 very reasonable.

    Our waiter was a college student from either VMI or Washington-Lee University, so I gave him a $5 tip..He was very attentive and very helpful with giving suggestions and answering questions..besides he is a college student, he could use the nice tip..lol

    Dining room of the Willson-Walker house

    This is the elegant dining area of the Willson-Walker House on Main Street in historic Lexington.
    The walls are a deep burgundy color and there is beautiful crystal glasses with water containing lemon/lime slices and iced tea with mint julip leaves.. very nice touch.

  • The Counter Culture Cafe/Healthy Foods Coop: The best and only Vegetarian Vegan place around!

    by Lavendergrits Updated Jan 11, 2009

    Being vegetarian you can usually find something to eat but you can't always find a vegetarian kitchen and a chef with a commitment to vegetarian/vegan cooking. Lunch is served daily from 11-2 . The service is fast and the choices are terrific. The Cafe is conveniently located in downtown across the street from Washington and Lee University. I suspect it is the only vegetarian restaurant in a 50 mile radius.

    Favorite Dish: Everything!

    Sheridan Livery Inn: Sheirdan Livery Inn

    by butterflykizzez04 Written Apr 5, 2005
    Sheridan Livery Inn (taken from Main street)

    Now, we didn't personally stop or eat here. We did walk past it on our walking tour of Lexington. It is a very nice old building.
    Here is some of the history of it:

    The inn has long been a landmark on the local scene. It dates from the year 1887 when John Sheridan, an Irish immigrant who had been in the calvary of the Confederate Army, purchased the building and opened a livery stable. The livery stable closed in 1919 and Sheridan sold the business to the Rockbridge Steam Laundry Corp. Subsequently, the building has passed through a succession of owners.

    It has been inn and restaurant owners Ugo and Gina Benincasa's dream to convert the historic building into a viable hotel/restaurant/conference center with office space, however. To that effect, they purchased the building in 1994 and started working on the project nine months ago with the help of architect Skip Ravenhorst, interior decorator Jacquelyn Buckner, building David Loughead and others.

    foyer of the Willson-Walker House

    We entered into the beautiful foyer of the house. It was like stepping back in time.
    The bathroom are located up that beautiful staircase. The two doorways of on the right are the dining areas.

    Noel (dau.) drinking her first

    My dau Noel and my niece Tiffany got to try their first "Shirley Temple" at the Willson-Walker House. It was fun for them to order them, even though Tiffany wasn't very fond of it.
