Restaurants in Versailles, Lexington and
Midway you may enjoy

The first restaurants recommended are in Midway, scenic 12 minutes away. Locally owned. In fact, all the restaurants that we recommend are locally owned. We have a small café (Melissa's Cottage Café) in walking distance that has "home style" food that is enjoyed by many. We also have an American Grill/Sports Bar restaurant that is 5 minutes away on Main Street called "Riccardos."
 
Asterisks below are by ones that I especially enjoy.  But all listed are good.  ~Elise
