If you’re looking for a great place to enjoy the sights and sounds of summer head over to Proud Mary Honky Tonk BBQ in Lexington. This restaurant located on the banks of the Kentucky river boasts a huge patio, outdoor bar, dance floor and live music stage overlooking the river. There’s cornhole, sand volleyball as well as an indoor and outdoor firepit. If that’s not enough to entice you then the melt in your mouth brisket certainly will.
This local favorite has plenty of room for small and large parties alike with multiple decks. They use to take reservations but unfortunately due to the large number of no-shows and other issues they no longer offer reservations. On nights when live music is on stage, there may be quite the wait for a table so arrive early or plan on waiting – but it’s well worth the wait or arriving early.
They serve up BBQ, fried catfish and frog legs just to name a few of the favorites right along with some of the best summer entertainment in Lexington. Some of our personal favorites are the ribs and pulled pork. They also make their own sauce, which is quite tasty.
The full bar offers many local drink options as well.
This seasonal restaurant typically opens for the season with a large Mardi Gras party. Live music graces the stage all summer long from Thursday – Sunday. If the weather isn’t cooperating, there is also plenty of room inside their large dining room.
Plan an afternoon with the entire family, play a game of cornhole and enjoy the outdoor tiki bar and patio.
