Went to the Woodland location mid-afternoon before the Kings v. Wizards game at Rupp Saturday and found it to be a cool place. Not many people, but looked like there were some regulars watching football and getting buzzed on PBRs at the bar and a table of well behaved frat boys pregaming in the back. Large, open space so no... More

Great atmosphere, great food, great location! Had been going there for years and now that I don't live in KY anymore, I really miss it. 100% recommended.

Traditionally Irish, the brunch here is cheap, the mimosas are bottomless, and the food is pretty darn good.

The Voodoo Burger is horrible and so is the service at Lynagh's! At 12:30 pm we went to Lynahs for lunch as soon as we walked in the door the server asked what we wanted...we had no idea we had never been there before. Several minutes later the server returned, we ordered 2 voodoo burgers, fries & Klosh beer. After... More

If you don't mind the dive bar feel, it's great. Wide selection of beers, rotating taps. Burger is awesome, but the buffalo chicken is the hidden gem, one if the best sandwiches I've ever had. Fries are also world class, but they don't come with the sandwiches, three bucks extra. Which makes it probably about 10% more expensive relative to... More

My wife and I had a great burger ( called the O-round) and pub fries at Lynaugh's. The bar has a huge selection of beer and a pretty cool atmosphere to enjoy it in. Look, this place is a bar first and restaurant 2nd. If you are expecting a dust free environment or squeakily clean bathrooms you might be disappointed.... More

An UK alumnae took us to this pub citing their burgers as worth a visit - it was. One can order toppings to make their burger special - avocado, bacon, mushrooms, grilled onions, etc. The burger was delicious; and the draft beer cold. Will return on my next trip to Lexington.

Many Lexintonians herald this establishment for its burgers and beer. Frankly, I can't get past the smudgy floor, sticky tables and chairs, mold-infested bathrooms and ceilings, and the horrid service.

Best burgers in town, a more mature crowd than most places close to campus, and I've gone there for years. Servers can get a little confused with a table of large people.... they made a mess out of out bill and people ended up paying for things they didn't order.. our waitress has "no clue" but, the company was good...
