JW's Steakhouse is located in the Marriott Lexington, KY hotel and resort on Newtown Pike and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. JW's Steakhouse features 100% Natural Choice Beef, fresh seafood, free-range poultry and homemade desserts for locals and those on vacation in Lexington, Kentucky.

Over 1,200 people attended at the event at Keeneland's Keene Barn and Entertainment Center in Lexington hosted by God's Pantry, with sixty restaurants, caterers, and beverage distributors showcasing their finest items at the annual Taste of the Bluegrass culinary event.

The Lexington, Kentucky hotel's talented culinary team was led by Executive Chef Sharon Caudill and won two awards during this event. The Kentucky Butter Cake with Bourbon Sauce was voted "Judges' Best Dessert" as well as the "People's Choice Award" for Best Dessert, too.
