I have come here with family and as excellent beginning point or stop along the night and will continue to do so!!!
My husband and I stopped in Cheapside Bar and Grill recently and had a great experience. It was very crowded, so we had to wait for a table. The service was very good, even though the food took a little while to come out (our server told us that the kitchen was a little backed up--which was understandable given the crowd).
I've spent many a birthdays, happy hours, lunches there, it's a really great spot.
I'm a fan of the buffalo zinger (chicken fingers) and the bbq chicken pizza.
They also do have live music some nights... so there's always something going on at this place.
Nothing better than sitting on the patio upstairs, under the umbrella, while the rain falls. Best outdoor dining experience in Lexington.
Very happy with this place. I was visiting for a conference and tried this place because of the nice Oasis outdoor seating area. Very good choice. The drink selection was solid and at a reasonable price, for beer and burbons anyways.
Meh... – Food: Decent...
Upstairs patio/deck: Pretty awesome...
Drink prices:... Decent...
Nothing impressive at all really but it's a good place to get smashed and not care about acting a fool I guess.
I go because it's convenient but I don't normally stay long.
Cheapside Bar & Grill (131 Cheapside) is a downtown Lexington bar and restaurant. It's more relaxed and quiet than some of the neighboring bar & grills. It's an attractive, expansive place inside. The food, drink, and service qualities are reasonable. Pricing is sensible and the staffers are friendly. Cheapside noise and crowding doesn't go to extremes. There is an elevated outdoor deck that offers a view of part of downtown. The average crowd is a little older than what you find at other nearby bar & grills. Drinking hours are Monday through Friday, 11:30 am to 2:30 am, and Saturday - Sunday 11 am to 2:30 am.
Great Place to Catch Live Music! – I've read the other reviews, and obviously they should be going to applebees or fridays. There they'll find all of the consumerist comforts Wal-mart has taught them to expect. Cheapside is an excellent establishment. They bring in some of the greatest bands in town, and they're drinks are great. Space is a bit limited, but that problem is quickly solved in warmer weather. They have heaters on the patio, and unless your a comlete prince or princess you should be plenty comfortable during most of the year. They use real seasoning in their food so there's actual flavor. Which sets it leaps above other "more-easily-accessible" establishments. Cheapside is a great place. Its my personal preference, if I'm looking for tunage on most any night of the week. I say if you're a music lover give it a chance. You won't be dissapointed.
Not for Kids! – My husband and I went there with a group of friends and a couple of kids. The place wasn't set up for large parties nor children. The drinks sucked and the food wasn't spectacular. My time and money would have been better spent at Applebees!
This is THE place to be! – Cheapsides is THE place to see and be seen in Lexington! The bar inside offers a cozy atmosphere and the bands are terrific. And when the band begins a-rockin'- (especially August Christopher!) - get ready to party! Or you can choose to dine in the glass-enclosed restaurant or head outside to the two bars located on the patio or the balcony - which overlooks the Cheapside crowd and city. There is so much to offer in downtown Lexington - and Cheapsides is a perfect spot to either begin or finish a night on the town.
