Always good food.

Good food and decent prices at this family friendly diner. And whatever you do, don't forget to get a piece of pie!

Veggies are good (those of the fresh variety) Rest is pretty standard fare with the exception of the hot brown. One of the better ones around.

We moved to Lexington 8 years ago, and Ramsey's was a favorite early discovery. We bring our out of town guests here to sample their consistently good Southern cuisine.

Ramsey's is a local favorite. They serve consistently good homestyle comfort food. The portions are generous. They use local, fresh ingredients. They have something to appeal to everyone, from wonderful thick, juicy hamburgers, crisp loaded salads, pot roast with carrots, green beans and mashed potatoes or cajun fried catfish. I don't think that it is possible to walk away hungry... More

If you want authentic Bluegrass home-cookin',here's your place. It's usually loud, but always good & hot & they'll let you order a lunch portion, which is good because they give you tons of food!

Huge portions of some of the best country food I've had. I virtually lived in Ramsey's when I first moved to Kentucky and still go back as often as possible.

This is southern cooking at it's most "homey". Comfort food in a comfortable atmosphere with comfortable service at a comfortable price.

While visiting relatives in Lexington, they treated us to dinner here. It was an enjoyable meal and we were impressed with the variety and quality of the sides, the squash and the roasted potatoes were great. Alas, We were too full for the fantastic looking pies. Service was prompt and friendly.
