Tried them tonight. Nice folks but over priced food.
Mixed greens ended up being a bowel of iceburg lettuce. The meal was chicken crab and potatoes.

$36.00 with 3 teas.

Sorry to say it, but save your money. Cracker Barrel is less than half the price and as good and better.

Guthries...tried them, they just weren't good. They put frozen steaks on the grill so the final steak is carbon on the outside and cold and raw in the center. They don't know the difference between Bananna Foster and Bananna Pudding. Veggies were mush. It's typical somerset cuisine designed for smokers with no teeth or taste buds.

Go to Sully's where even fried food is not grease

I suppose that Guthrie's terrible, greasy food and the outrageous prices are why the place has little to no open places to park every night of the week that they are open. Believe me, I know. I drive by there almost daily for one reason for the other.. I've seen cars parked at the business next door to them many times because of the overflow. Yet the wait time for a table is quite reasonable... They're obviously doing something right or the crowds would not be as huge as they are. I'd actually say Guthrie's is doing a LOT of things right, for that matter..

(Obviously, the OP of this thread placed this statement strictly to "bait" one of the Mods into deleting it, beings as they've been whining on here since sometime last week about how things get zapped anyway. Go to one of the "Captain's Lounge" forums for proof of this eye opening conclusion if you doubt what I'm saying. Just a friendly head up, in case anyone is interested).

Your assumptions couldn't be more wrong. I'm sorry to say it and I'm not trying to insult you but you are wrong.
I started this thread to honestly review a restaurant that I have been looking forward to trying for awhile. It was sub par and I'm sorry that it was.
We ate at Culver's tonight and talked about how much better the chicken cashew salad was than Guthrie's pecan encrusted chicken salad.
I think that Guthrie's wants to do well. The service was good and all staff were friendly. But they are far from earning the money that they are charging.
I would like to hear how folks rate Guthrie's against other local restaurants. All I'm saying is if you're going to charge like Outback then serve that level of quality.
I was looking forward to the seven layer white chocholate with raspberry puree cake, but after the meal I was so disappointed that I didn't bother trying it. Instead I went to Dairy Queen for a small orange julius. That's the truth, sorry if it offends you.

By the big red X I guess you think the food that I ate last night was really good.
Too funny.

Typical Somerset, complain about one of the few good places to eat locally.

Guthrie's is one of the only places in Somerset I will go to eat with my wife on a "in town" date. Service is always good, nice outdoor seating in the summer, ribeye sandwach is always good and they've had some nachos as an appetizer before that were as good as any I've ever had anywhere.

I guess it is tied into the economics of it all but this is why Somerset can't support better restaurants. Nobody is willing to pay a very reasonable price for dinner... And instead of supporting a locally owned establishment you suggest Cracker Barrel. I don't get it. Name me one great restaurant in Lexington that is a chain? Can't do it. They are all owned by local people.

The Cracker Barrel comment was really only about the salad. I am in Lexington weekly and I do not care to pay for good food.
The breaded chicken that was on my salad at Guthrie's was about like a frozen chicken breast out of the box.
I would like to hear what people like on Guthrie's menu so I'll know what to try.
Do not get offended at me because Guthrie's sold me a sub par salad.
The tea was good.
The waitress was really good, but our rolls didn't come until the meal was over. Not her fault but still.
The honey cinnamon butter was excellent.
The table and chairs could have been found in a mini mart deli.
Reviewimg restaurants makes them better people. reviewing a restaurant helps them grow their business, if they pay attention.

It's been a while since I was there, but when I was Guthrie's was just as good as Malone's steak. No, it wasn't on par with the Chop House, but my New York strip was so good, I contemplated ordering another, and I was stuffed. The chef may have changed or something (been a year or two), but it was fantastic, and I recommended it to out of towners. There's my review.

I have had some good food and bad food at just about every restaurant in town from Guthries to Cracker Barrel to McDonalds. I still go to all of them. Being involved in a small business, I always appreciate the wonderful reviews of some people. It is sad that most of the reviews people make are negative and the people that have a positive experience remain quiet. All I can say is the last time I was at Guthries was excellent and the folks that went with us thought the same.

I didn't care for it. When I was there, I honestly saw a lot of "upper class" people there. Now I'm not saying anything bad about them, I don't know them, but it seemed that people may have been there as a status symbol.

The service was great, but I could have made better food at home.

I'll never understand why people start threads like this one just so they can trash a local business. If you had legitimate issues with the food, you should have talked to the manager. A good restaurant welcomes constructive criticism and a chance to win you over as a customer. Although Guthries cuisine may not be your cup of tea (it's not mine either), it does appeal to a lot of people. Quite frankly, I'm glad they're doing so well.

Thanks Lisa, I didn't know anyone there, but I do think that some people really want to believe we have an upscale restaurant in the area. Guthrie's could be that place, but they need to get it done in the kitchen. That's all I'm saying. Not trashing the place.

your calling them a lot of upper class people but you didnt know any of them. so what makes you say they were upper class unless its because no one had body odor or because they had on clean clothes. what a stupid remark to judge some body of being upper class and then turn around and admit you dont know them even.
you usually make more sense then this so its disappointing to hear you talk this way about people you dont know.
sure enough its a damn shame that people will dress better to go out to eat then they will for church any more but what you just said makes no sense at all.

You aren't going to get much in the way of an unbiased, objective review from me. I am a Guthrie groupie. I have eaten there since they were in Jamestown. You may have just ordered something you don't care for from their preparation. Try the Ribeye. I used to go to Louisville to Pat's Steak House (extremely old restaurant, cold aged, hand cut steaks). Then my friend turned me on to Guthrie's. Nobody and I mean nobody makes a ribeye with such quality and taste along with a baked potato or their extremely cheesy potatoes augratin a salad and bread for $17.99. I get it almost every single time with blue cheese dressing on the salad. Pretty sure they make the dressing there. In fact, I cannot seem to get to anything else. Finish that off with a white chocolate cake with raspberry reduction and I am telling you... that is life! I would eat there every day if I had the money! Love it! Love it! and they are local! Oh and just my opinion Outback in comparison is an outhouse. Just saying. Sure they have the best blooming onions and chopped blue cheese slaw, but steak to steak, Guthries wipes the floor with them. Who needs a knife? In face, I am so hungry I think I'm going to

Yeah, big steak and blue cheese dressing fan here....have an Outback here were I live now. I like it, but Guthrie's is way better. Like I said, they're as good as Malone's ....and priced better. The prices are good for the food. When you go to a place known for steak, you order the steak! LOL. The strip is good too.
