Never disappointed with Chow45. Great food and prices. You do not feel like you're in a small town; this is the type of food you expect from the big city, but with a small town atmosphere.

Really great food. Would have liked to know some of the prices (such as the specials) before ordering. I thought the price for the "Kids' chicken alfredo at $12.99" was overpriced. The food was delicious though. The service was also very good (the only thing I would ask is that the servers say the specials a bit slower, we had... More

This Lil place is awesome. A friend and I (he's eaten here several times) stopped here for lunch. It doesn't look very appealing from the outside, but the moment we walked in we were greeted by several smiling faces. The service was great, very attentive staff. The food was great and a wonderful variety to choose from. From sandwiches (the... More

This is an old home that has been turned into a restaurant-- the atmosphere is quaint and darling. We fell in love with the place when we walked in the door.

Chow 45 always has something different on menu! The Potato pancakes are outstanding, they are made with the potato casserole left overs from the day before. The dessert menu is quite extensive and all homemade. We absolutely love this place!!!

We were driving through Mayfield on the first day of vacation and stopped to find some food. A local person told us about this place. It is a great find. Everything we had was great and the service was super! Don't miss this place on your way through Western KY.

I've eaten at Chow 45 for lunch several times and have always been pleased. My wife and I went last evening for dinner and were very pleased. Her steak was way over cooked and they cooked another one promptly and without question. The shrimp and grits were excellent although I would have preferred the grits not been in cake form.... More
