Pre-game meal. In & out with no issues. Food & service were great.
The food is outstanding! The price is right and the service is great! Vibe is MUCH better at Thirsty Fox. Zim’s is too bright and cafeteria feeling.
The shrimp and grits was excellent. My dining companions also had excellent choices and everything was very enjoyable-we will return!
Great food, service, atmosphere was great! Would recommend! Will go again.
Zim's food is always delicious. The service is good. We seldom have to wait to get a table, but there is usually a fairly good size crowd. We try to go there about once a month.
We love Zim’s cafe. We have been several times and it only gets better!!
great service and good food. Convenient location in downtown Lexington. Will go again
The food was delicious! We'll definitely be back.
New Year’s Eve!
Birthday there and while brunch is their specialty their dinner was very pleasant.
Great place to eat! Love this place! HIGHLY recommend~
First time at Zim’s , food was great, casual atmosphere and close to Rupp.
First Time dining at Zim's and we really enjoyed it! Very convenient to Rupp Arena. Perfect Place for a Pre-Basketball Game Dinner.
Great food, service, and atmosphere.
Our last visit was in August 2021, and it appears now that the portion size has been cut down greatly over what we had 3 months ago. We were a bit disappointed.
This is a local gem in the visitors center. Took us awhile to find it, but we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner before the UK BB game there. Two of us had the pork plate and I had the Bourbon trail chili. We each had a hoecake (Corn bread) and the meal was complete. I would definitely go back here again.
Ate here prior to a concert at Rupp, and loved it! Food was delicious, menu was creative (but not weird), and we all really enjoyed what we ordered. Bar looked inviting, and I will have to go back sometime to try some of their offerings. Great downtown spot!
Wonderful dinner experience. Our server was friendly and attentive but not intrusive. Food was great! We can't wait to go back.
Very nice place.. good quality food, and prices still reasonable. Portions kind of small. Some unique takes on many dishes.
Pretty quiet for a Thursday night. This seems to be more of a lunch place as they were out of several things by dinner. Food was good. The Windy corner has many of the same items and I thought they were better prepared there.
Service was good.
Perfect meal prior to a basketball game. Wasn't stuffed but extremely satisfied!
Went with a group of seven with a reservation. We were seated immediately; the restaurant was not busy. Very excited to find quite a few vegan options. Several of us ordered them so I was able to sample more than just mine. Super tasty! Our server was great. Very prompt. Kept my coffee refilled. Too enthusiastic thumbs up.
we had such a good time...celebrating a friend's birthday...and all was perfect!
Zim's Cafe was inviting and everyone working there was incredibly nice. The service was outstanding and quick! I had the pulled pork platter and a Cosmopolitan. Both were great!
Food excellent. Bre did a great job serving us.
Always a pleasure to dine here. The food is always excellent. The staff is super friendly and efficient. I love that you can make reservations.
Great food, we had catfish and porkchops with greens and chesse grits. All done very well. Finished with Bourbon Pecan Pie. Humble but good atmospere, cheerful, attentive service. A very good experience, and great value for quality.
Nice menu selection of sandwiches, I had shrimp and grits, creamy grits with lightly seasoned shrimp and lots of butter. Great fried artichokes with mild remulade sauce. Artwork was a nice touch, service was great. Maybe a new place, will become popular.
Another fantastic Ouita Michel restaurant, this one low- to medium-priced. I had the salmon, which was great. Any of Ouita's restaurants is always a safe bet for a kickass dining experience. Outdoor seating made me feel safer.
One high point of this place is that it's connected to The Thirsty Fox and has a variety of brewed adult beverages on tap, many of them locally produced. I had the RockHouse porter on tap.
Recommend? Hell, yeah!
Great service, excellent menu, and tasty food. My Go-To dining spot when I want to sit and talk to a friend over a good meal in a friendly space.
Good meal as usual
Food was delicious. Unfortunately for us, there was a large group of guys that was really loud-not the restaurants fault though.
The artichoke appetizer and the fried pickles were delicious. The cocktails were very good as well. The hot brown was amazing. The pork chop was the best ever. The macaroni salad was so good. The chili was very good. The chess pie was outstanding. Can’t wait to go back.
Best eggs Benedict I’ve ever had!!!!
Loved the patio setting. Drinks and preparation of food was excellent. But the one big complaint was the tiny portion of salmon served to two of the three whom ordered it It looked as if one serving was halved to serve to two. We do enjoy this owner’s dining establishments overall but disappointed w two of the serving sizes
We really enjoyed our pre-concert dinner. The food was very good and the staff were very nice.
The food was really good. I had the catfish and it was some of the best I’ve ever had. My daughter had the shrimp and grits and was impressed. We both had the greens for a side , outstanding!
Food was absolutely delicious and our waitress was very efficient and friendly. We could not have been more pleased. We were there for UK family weekend, and it was by far the very best place we ate all weekend and will definitely be returning!
Dinner on the patio, very enjoyable
Went for the music great Atmosphere expect to be patient for service.
