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.

Moms southern cooking. Nothing fancy but good local food. Bar is nice. Creamed corn is homemade. Coleslaw is great. Simple and reliable. Breakfast here is a must.

IMO they have the best Hot Brown in town. Either the regular hot brown or the veggie one - they are both awesome. It's a great place for brunch as there is a wide variety of options and they also serve alcohol, what's brunch without a bloody mary? This is a very local place that has been around for years....

I have been here many times and have never had a bad experience. Its one of my favorite restaurants in Lexington. Service is great ,food is great and prices are great. Several locations in Lexington. My favs are the hot brown or Pork chops in red sauce or chicken livers with white gravy or the BLT salad.
