My family eats at Columbia's Downtown regulary.
We always have a great expeience. The staff and food is always great. You cannot beat the Nighthawk Special. Lamb Fries and Hot Browns are a favorite also.
Diego salad yummy!
I love going here and the nighthawk is always going on in January and at least through valentines day. My hubby and I love to go and have a glass of yellow tail merlot and the tenderloin and huge tater!
I am a Fan, now I will order the meat without all the butter swimming around and I don't like that they now use margarine instead of real butter on spuds. I love the vinegar oil dressing too. May have to go tonight!
Great Food & Service Very welcoming
Great Food Warm & Friendly Service. I felt right at home. I especially liked the wine 14 Hands Recommended by the Owner. Steak was perfectly done tender & juicy. Memorable stop off on my way to Florida. I will make this a must DO destination everytime. The chicken strips are real tasty and home style I recommend for kids. The Receptionist at La Quinta recommended this for Great Homestyle cooking. I have already recommended to several colleagues.
Can't go wrong...
You can't go wrong with the Nighthawk special - but get the garlic butter on the side lest you have a heartattack before dessert. The Diego salad is very good and has lots of good crispy lettuce and celery. I always order mine with house dressing and a side of blue cheese - yeah that is why I don't get the garlic butter.
I'm A Fan
Our first stop in Lexington, I was looking for a regional type food or beverage to sample.
Did no one else ever ask "What are Lamb Fries?"
I've never heard of them before and as far as I know this is the only place around you can order them. They say they taste like chicken livers. But to me - they are not as chewy
Just for fun, don't ask what they are, order a few - eight come with the appetizer. And then after, ask what they are. You'll have a great story to tell your friends.
The Nighthawk and catfish were great. So were the fresh-baked rolls. Friendly people, good food, nice atmosphere, they invited me back, so I'm sure to return.
Yay, I'm a fan
