What a gem! Don't expect gourmet meals, but the food is really good for a cafeteria. Staff was friendly.... Food very reasonably priced and place very clean.

The food here is decent--nothing fancy, but it's perfect if you're there to watch the morning workout. After an hour out in the cold, a hot breakfast and complimentary steaming cup of brewed coffee hits the spot! Their cappuccino wasn't bad either.

So, I was drawn to the track kitchen while given a tour by a Keeneland employee. She brought me here just to show me the pictures on the wall and told me it's an experience. I came back for their breakfast special because it was $5 and I wanted to eat something more local. The fact that I paid $5... More

Not all that obvious or promoted but a must as part of any visit to the Keeneland race track. A chance to experience another dimension of life at the track rubbing shoulders with grooms, hot walkers, exercise riders, owners, trainers and everyone else associated with making the place work. Its location also ensures that you see parts of the operation... More

We went to the Track Kitchen to eat lunch before entering the grounds at Keeneland. DD and I both ordered a made-to-order sandwich and an order of fries to share. Each of us also had a bowl of banana pudding. The food was very good, plentiful, and very reasonably priced. We arrived around 12:30 and the place wasn't too busy.... More

Passing through Lexington earlier this past July (2016), I urged the family to let me choose a stop at the Track Kitchen. What we experienced was a deplorable let-down and sad realization of how things have deteriorated since the dismissal of Turf Catering and the new oversight by an executive chef fresh from a major resort hotel. Here is my... More

The food is very good, prices are good and the atmosphere is unique. If you have out of town guests, bring them here, to rub elbows with trainers, jockeys, grooms and horse owners. The Kentucky Derby winning trainer, may be sitting at the next table. Now open for lunch.

We read about the Keeneland "Track Kitchen" in a newspaper article and since we were traveling and going to be in the area, we definitely put it on our route! What a breathtaking environment driving through the grounds. We found the kitchen and there were only a hand full of people inside eating. The staff was friendly and courteous and... More

I was taking a friend to Lexington and was asked to see some 'horse country'. I remembered during the off season of Keeneland you can get to the backside and see what most don't even know about ref the race horse industry. Took the Rice Road entrance to the back side (Gate3) and what a treat to see the beautiful... More
