About us


What makes us great?

Carson’s Food & Drink brings Lexington to life by combining Kentucky Proud products and local craft breweries with new and exciting recipes and a décor that feels like “old Kentucky elegance”.

Kentucky is an amazing place filled with history, thoroughbreds, bourbon, great food and the big blue nation; and Carson’s brings you ALL the Bluegrass has to offer, under one roof.
