Great lunch. I had a house salad with all the extras and some corn bread on the side. Makes for a perfect lunch - not too filling but enough to get you through the day. I had a great server who threw out a few...More

Great little casual place for home style comfort food. Awesome pies. Unfortunately, the level of service is declining. We ate here on a Wednesday evening. Restaurant was not over busy, but it took an extraordinarily long time to get our food. We finally had to...More

I love everything about Ramsey's! The corn sticks, creamed corn, pan-blackened catfish, cajun catfish, meatloaf, and the PIE! OMG! It is just all so good and comforting.

Over-rated by locals since they know the few dishes that are good. Our vegetables were tasteless. Fried foods were over breaded and cooked too much, think burned. Service was slow and it was not crowded. If you try ask around to find out what foods...More

Service is always very pleasant, everyone has a smile for you. Chicken livers are the absolute best. The pieces are large and the portions are very generous and cooked to perfection. Sides are just like home cooked. I really love going to Ramsey's anytime.

Sat at the bar. Service was great. Food was not. Okra was cold, mac and cheese was cold. Neither had a good flavor to them, very bland. The corn bread tasted like they were using really old butter. The corn on the cob was great....More

I saw one gentleman go to the bar with a dog on a leash. He might have been there for a takeout. But at any rate, the dog was in the restaurant. Would seem logical that they would therefore allow dogs on the patio,
