Comfort food at its finest. Staff is always very friendly. Portion sizes are generous and moderately priced. The only thing I wish they would improve is the texture of their hush puppies.

We always have a fun time when we go here. The food is amazing, though most of our favorite things are very rich with very large portions. The pie is amazing. And our servers and hostess are always friendly and well-organized. Definitely recommend.

Need I say more:) the pies are awesome. They have great meats and veggies too. I have been traveling to the Lexington for over 20 years and Ramsey's is always on the list.

Tried this place for lunch on a weeklong business trip. It is a local favorite apparently. It's ok. For my preference and taste, it's ok. There were plenty of sandwich options- most included mayo and onion roll. I had the fried chicken sandwich which was actually pretty good. Creamed corn was ok. I've had better but certainly wasn't bad. Prices... More

Fantastic food, I had the standard Reuben and it was delicious. The service was great too. And the company made it even better.

Lived here since I was a teen. Don't even think the Brown Hotel's Original hot brown is as good. Love the atmosphere.

The lady at our motel recommended this restaurant as a southern, home cooking restaurant. Our meals was fabulous, the waitress was friendly and very accommodating. Definitely will be going back.

Home grown, hometown feel. The environment is very family friendly, wait staff is very attentive and the food is very filling. Just make sure you save some room for pie. Missy's Pie selections are amazing. You can get your pick warm or cold...enjoy.

We were seated by the door, which sucked cause it was very cold outside in the morning. I ordered the beast. This breakfast was huge for the price that you pay. It includes 5 eggs, pancakes, toast, home fries, bacon and sausage. A lot of food for 9.99. Needless to say I only ate about 1/3 of it. My boyfriend... More

Ramsey's has a good variety of "home cooked" meals. The service is always good. I often get carry out and eat inside the restaurant, both are very good.
