Seafood at its best! A dozen of us went there on Sat night. Best onion rings ever as appetizer! We are tried the Fired Jumbo Shrimp and it was amazing. Huge shrimp and fired to perfection with great seasoning. They also have italian food and we chose the buttered pasta for our side and it was delicious. Don't be fooled... More

We had a hot tip on the food at Ramon's. A local gave us directions and told us to order the fried shrimp, onion rings and the cavatuna. We did exactly as we were advised. She was right. The fried shrimp arrived hot, crisp and flavorful. The onion rings were fabulous. The larger order was enough for five. The cavatuna... More

We had a recommendation from a local and this places serves mainly deep fried southern food, shrimps, catfish, pork etc. It is not licenced so you can take your own wine with no corkage. So not exciting cuisine but honest local food . Gluten free options were a bit limited as most food is battered but they served good grilled... More

The food here is real good southern style. Only problem is it is busy busy so if you are in a hurry you might want to go someplace else. The staff is very friendly. The building hasn't been updated in 100 years. But best food in town.

This place is right out of the past with great local food. Fried shrimp is their special dish and it is good! Not much to see from the outside but a whole different world when you enter. Family run and operated with real class, they make you feel like family when you show up. You can bring your own wine!... More

There were 7 of us in Clarksdale for the weekend before going to Memphis for the International Blues Competition. We were looking for a new restaurant to try and decided to stop at Ramon's on a Saturday night. When we walked in we were asked if we had reservations - we didn't and told them we were from out of...

I found this gem a little late into my trip, but when I found it I was there everyday for 3 days. Known for their fried shrimp and onion rings which were really really good. They have perfected the batter. I didn't have anything bad. The spaghetti and meatballs were good as well. You'll leave full and happy. They are... More

Description
This is a hidden jewel in Clarksdale! Ramon's is very homey and off the beaten path down in a neighborhood, but it has the best fried shrimp and spaghetti around. They serve a dish of fried chicken livers and spaghetti. Dinners come with a salad. Everything is fresh and tasty and the service is very southern and friendly.
