Description

The Red Hen, founded in 2008, is Lexington’s first farm-to-table restaurant, featuring the bounty of the Shenandoah Valley. Each day we create a new menu based on the freshest and tastiest produce and meat, whether it is a ribeye steak from cattle raised by the Potter family, who have been farming in nearby Collierstown for seven generations, or a beet risotto using vegetables from Rancho Calixto, a family farm founded by immigrants from Mexico. This dedication to local food means each dish preserves the intricate flavors of the land. It’s also good for the environment and our local economy.

"Owes Apology "

30 June 2018

The owner of this restaurant should apologize to the customer, Ms Sanders, whom she treated so rudely and cruelly. A customer is a guest and should be treated with respect and courtesy. I would be ashamed of myself if I had asked someone to leave like that, embarrassing her in front of her family an friends.

"Keeping America Great!"

I can't praise the owner highly enough for sticking up for her employees and demonstrating her integrity. I've already purchased a gift card to this fine little establishment and can't wait for the opportunity to use it. Good on ya!

"Excellent! "

25 June 2018

I’m sure the food is incredible, but what is the best is the fact that this establishment exercised their right to refuse service. If you republicans don’t like it, I hear there’s a bakery that serves your kind.

on my way to south carolina from ny i visited a friend in va. i offered to take them to dinner of their choice of rest. we went to the red hen. i had the braised leg of lamb dinner. very disappointed. the lamb was tough as though it wasn't cooked enough. the polenta was kind of soggy. i had a brownie for desert that was more like fudge...i wonder if they use flour at all. the waiter was not attentive and had to be reminded to bring items that we asked for. we waited forever for the check. when More>>

I think it's great what you did. It's very important in this day and age we be allowed to stand for our beliefs. I would have done the same thing.

"Delicious."

24 June 2018

I love the food and visit often. This restaurant is a gem. I am proud to see people will stand up for what is right and decent in this world. We need more people like you at the Red Hen to wake up the ignorant representatives of this current government. I wouldn’t want her near my kitchen either.

"Disappointment"

24 June 2018

I could not recall the name of the "hip" little joint we had once visited in Lexington, but a friend just reminded me.... and I find the lofty little miscreants that run the place have made the news. Sad, really, for this democrat, that folk that preach tolerance practice so little of what they preach themselves. But, it is a nice little piece of real estate, and one can only hope the next occupants offer better food and service. From the comments that now populate this site, I am reminded that More>>

"Pathetic"

24 June 2018

The owner is a woman’s advocate and marches for women’s rights then kicks a woman out of a Restaurant because she does not agree with her politics, ya that’s supporting women I guess, what a hypocrite.

"Awesome Morals"

24 June 2018

Thank you for standing up to lies, bigotry, racism, and low morals. You have the right to refuse service based on your moral obligations. I truly believe your small gesture made millions of us (with heart and intelligence) cry a bit and smile plenty. We need to stick together and make America the loving and accepting place it used to be. America is not about hatred and discrimination and racism. Thank you.
