I haven't visited Shakespeare's and co for a couple of years. From my memory it is pretty much the same . The novelty of an international restaurant in lexington ky persists. I had tea (earl grey in a bag) and the English breakfast with oJ...More

Shakespeare & co, awful, waiter service barely adequate , kitchen service very slow, portions small, cook doesn't understand the concept of over easy eggs. Toast ? What's that ? I had two Tiny untoasted circular bread coasters. Food Much to costly for the Decor experience.

Not much good about food or attention to detail. Repeatedly either forgot to bring bread, water, food, and messed up food order. Have eaten here five or six times and have never been impressed. Won't go back.

In the heart of downtown across from the opera house, Shakespeare and Co. is a warm, friendly place with an offbeat Victorian vibe that is very comfortable. You can dine seated at sofas or regular tables. The menu spans from Middle Eastern to French to...More

I don't have a clue but have been told that breakfast is a draw to the restaurants since they have a good breakfast/brunch menu.

For breakfast or lunch. It doesn't tend to fill up really early, but it does for dinner and turns into more of a bar. I would say for breakfast, but honestly, the children's menu is lacking. If your child loves pancakes... More
