Dudley's on Short
Love this place, everytime we come to Lexington!
Great food and atmosphere. Always a pleasure. Staff if friendly and attentive.
Great Food, Service, Location--Locally Owned Lexington Restaurant!
The calamari was excellent. Had a good heat too it without being overpowering. The service was excellent! Very responsive and helpful. Good bread variety. The main course was good. The Ahi Tuna was rare and plentiful. The side course was a bit too strong for my taste. The maxwell dish was properly cooked but I would like the steak to be thicker. Overall an excellent experience.
Great original food choices and good service. Service felt a little rushed but understand they were trying to move people through before a concert. Menu options offered really good choices other than the typical steak dished and they were done very well. Highly recommend giving it a try.
Dining on Dudley’s rooftop garden on a summer evening is by far my favorite. Everything was great. The waiter was over-the -top. Thank you Dudley’s!
Awsome night with great food and exceptional service!
Dudley’s is the absolute go to for a date night in Lexington Ky.
Service was fantastic. Though the food is usually good at Dudleys the kitchen staff must have been having an off day.
A wonderful post graduation brunch We have nothing but the highest regards for Dudley’s on Short. Lovely, kind and attentive wait staff. Food was delicious.
Perfect, as usual. The waiter was new and did a really nice job .
Food was outstanding. I had the daily fish special and the flavors and side were unique and wonderful and the fish was so fresh. Our waiter was very attentive and there was extra wait staff floating to help. Will go back soon.
Creative menu options and outstanding service. Topped off our meal with a chocolate sundae dessert.
The service was very good, attentive but not smothering. The food was excellent, especially the duck, which was one of the best meals I've had in a long time. For any special occasion or for a really nice date night, Dudley's is always our first thought.
Exceptional service with excellent food. Our only criticism is how rapid our service was. Not much time to linger over courses. In and out on a Friday evening in 50minutes.
Felt like a private dinning club ..... Great deco! Some staff was amazing. Gentleman that delivered bread was top notch! Owner lady at host stand not so much ! She treated us like newbies, and smiled and waved to old customers her recognized! She’s missing the boat when it comes to the new waves of guests . Menu was good , but chef might need a little refresher on latest and greatest of the food scene!
I went there for brunch on Mother’s Day and it was very good. The food was excellent and the service was very good.
Dudley’s never disappoints! Our food was delicious - lamb shank, steak, deviled eggs, fried green tomatoes and chocolate meringue. Excellent mimosas spiked with Galiano. Service was impeccable. It was a fixed price meal for Mother’s Day - good value!
Everything was perfect. Seating on the outdoor patio, excellent drinks, great appetizer and wonderful entree which my wife and I shared. More that enough to eat. Good value for our dollar. Anthony was our server and he was superb. I will ask for him again when I make a reservation there.
We were able to dine outside on the enclosed patio. It was quite lovely. Everyone seemed to enjoy their drinks and meals. One in our party had special dietary requirements and the chef was able to prepare something special that was very tasty. We haven’t dined at Dudley’s in quite a while and would come back.
Not our first visit. Food quality was fair and way over priced.
This is one of my favorite restaurants. Had dinner with a friend, sat outside -- so wonderful!!! I had the tuna, & we split the brussels sprouts salad & dessert. Everything was very good. My only complaint would be the aioli with the tuna was totally unnecessary & didn't work that well with the dish. My friend had the smoked duck which was excellent as was the salad.
This was my second time visiting this restaurant and it has a brilliant menu and the food is outstanding. I also love all the different home baked breads to choose from.
The best meal we had in Kentucky! Very creative menu and excellent execution. Enjoyable wine-list with enough variation. I would highly recommend this restaurant!!
Always great food and service!
We took my mom for her 94th birthday celebration. She LOVED it---the setting, the food. The service was great and mom attacked the ice cream sundae dessert with a passion (thankfully it only had one candle). Thanks to the entire Dudley's crew for a very memorable evening.
A wonderful experience, we visited in celebration of a graduation. The food was exceptional, service premier, and all in all, a lovely experience.
We went to Sunday brunch and it was wonderful. We were seated upstairs which was more quiet than downstairs. Brunch menu was a mix of traditional and non traditional options. Staff was attentive but not intrusive. Definitely a must while in Lexington
Lovely restaurant and accommodating staff: we had a great time celebrating our daughter's graduation eve here!
Limited menu especially if Specials don't work for you. Good wine list. Halibet, a signature dish was overcooked. Mgr. Comped item.
Great restaurant & patio! Come for the creative & excellent food! Love the specials & the brussels sprout salad! Looking forward to returning already!
Excellent meal...service was impeccable! Truly a pleasure... will definitely return!
Well had an excellent meal here. We loved the menu and ate their daily specials. The duck was superb. They have a comprehensive wine list that pairs well with the food. Our server was very helpful, friendly and efficient. The decor in the dining room is charming.
The highlight was the coconut rice pudding dessert. It is a must.
A Lexington classic. Never, ever, ever disappointing.
Our waiter Taylor was outstanding. Food fantastic. Hard to impress my husband but you all did it!
Dudley’s was a delightful brunch experience. Our service was great. There were so many things that looked good on the menu that it was difficult to choose. We all enjoyed this very much.
Always a quality dining experience at Dudley’s.
Not bad. The prawns however not cooked properly and the oysters did not feel fresh and still almost frozen.
We had an outstanding dining experience. The food was fabulous and the attention we received from our server enhanced the evening.
Was there for lunch with friends. Had club sandwich and sesame cake with lemon icing. Club was a club and quite good as they usually are. I loved the cake. Others all had salads which were well received. Bill for all four (my treat) before wine and tip was about $65. Would definitely go back again.
