“Bringing good music back to the Bluegrass region”

Willie's Locally Known, a music venue serving BBQ and wings that are already being hailed as legendary, opened in March at 805 N. Broadway, Lexington, KY.  Willie's is the place for great food and wonderful music. Big patio, multiple bars, great food, Allen&Heath GL 2400 board with recording capabilities, indoor and outdoor stages, and we have plenty of parking. Give us a holler to book a show or come hang out to jam anytime. Under the direction of Kentucky chef Ben Berry, Willie's offers a menu of barbecue smoked on site, mouth-watering wings, fried green tomatoes, oyster po' boys and other simple, savory southern fare. Across from Thortons on North Broadway. Willie's is on the left as you head away from downtown towards Applebee's Park. There is plenty of parking around back if the front lot is full.

We took my dog here for dinner for his 12th Birthday. The food was incredible, but the service was even that much more enjoyable! They brought my dog a biscuit and even came over and gave him a piece of brisket fresh from the smoker. It was a great way to end the day. They had a nice fire going too which made it really relaxing and a great dinner.

We visited willies on a road trip from maine! It was recommended to us by another restaurant in town when we asked for a place with live music on a Tuesday night. The atmosphere was great, so comfortable! The music, the brother brothers,a bluegrass band from NY was fun and we even got to meet Willie himself! Coming from so far away we didn't know anything about the area so I would definitely recommend this spot and hope to return again some day!
