Warm ambiance in a historic neighbor with good service and terrific food! Entrees may be pricey but the staff easily accommodates sharing. The wedge salad and New York strip were both yummy!

We've visited Lexington several times and tried a few restaurants, but noting compares to The Blue Heron Steakhouse. Interestingly, we have never had a steak there (I'm sure they're great). We split the fried chicken with a side of sautéed green beens with bacon and shallots. The portions, split were plenty for both of us. The next night we split the shrimp & grits, which are the best outside of New Orleans, and the fried chicken is to die for!
One curious thing: I ordered a bourbon on the rocks which was $9 on the menu, but was charged $10.50. I asked about the discrepancy and was given an obtuse answer ...something about an extra charge for the bartender to add ice! Because the waiter appeared new and the experience was so good, I did not press it further, but at best found it odd.

Booked a table 3 weeks in advance. Were placed at a table on the enclosed porch. Maybe it was an enclosed lean-to. Couldn’t hear each other talk. Listened to the waitress scream the menu specials to the table next to us. Got up and left. Hostess would not seat us at a table in the main dining room, which was completely empty. We will not be back. I’d suggest you search for another steakhouse.

We were seated right away with an open table reservation that I had just made. The filet was absolutely perfect. Prepared just as I ordered and very juicy. Two sides come with dinner so it's a lot of food. Broccoli was good but too garlicky for me. Nice environment and outside dining options.
