We stopped in as we'd never eaten here and needed an early dinner. We were the second customers of the evening but the restaurant quickly filled up! Our waitress was very accommodating and patient as we perused the menu and asked questions. There is a LOT to choose from and everything sounds wonderful. We were served complimentary bread with dipping... More

Suttons is one of our go to places for a great meal at reasonable prices. This local family owned restaurant never fails to impress. My husband and I had traveled to the islands for our big 40th celebration and just wanted something casual back in Lexington. We arrived in time for happy hour and had wine and draft West Sixth...

The best Italian meal we have ever had. The lasagna was authentic and fresh. Just wonderful!!! My husband had the Ciopinno. He loved it. We will be back. Hugh menu. We have decided that Suttons may replace Malones as our new "go to" restaurant. Hidden gem in Lexington.

There the name was - on one of those Interstate Exit signs with Wendy's, Arby's, and KFC. "One of these is not like the others" as the childhood rhyme goes. Sutton's has real meals with lots of choices at reasonable prices, and service as slow - or fast - as you want it. Sandwches, pasta, salads, pizza, and great looking... More

First and maybe last time trying Sutton's. This place seems to have an identity crisis. It isn't a pub and it isn't really Italian. There wasn't anything bad about the food, in fact my mahi mahi with pasta was only a tad bit overcooked. Our waiter, however, didn't seem to want to believe that I liked it and asked me,... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our small family restaurant. Our culinary diversity is a reflection of my palate. I am truly a foodie and love to prepare items that I have created or experienced which includes all types of cuisine. My family roots are Italian and Ukrainian.

My husband and I went to Sutton's for the first time tonight. We had the seafood sampler--mahi, shrimp, and sea scallops all grilled to perfection. Our server Josh was friendly, attentive, and was able to give some great advice on entrée items. (Plus he was a pretty cool guy.) Perhaps the only thing I found lacking would be the atmosphere....
