This is one of those few places that you can get a table for a large group without an act of Congress. You can skip the coconut pie, but the fried chicken breast is fabulous.

This is the joke of Lexington. Glasses are dirty, food is served cool at best and it must be serve yourself coffee. When we brought the dirty glasses to the managers attention he blew it off and didn't get us clean glasses. All this at a relatively new location. Won't be going back. Please check your glasses.

My chicken and dumplings were delicious and ask for extra corn bread. The vegetable platter was off the charts...so fresh, so good. The coconut cream pie wasn't good so now we have to go back and try another dessert. Loved Ramsey's Diner.

I wouldn't consider Ramseys a place to seek out if you are coming from out of town (I live in Lexington), but I can recommend it for good eating if you want to be sure you have a lot of variety for all ages, good food and reasonable prices. Nothing is really outstanding about Ramsey's, but it's always reliably good,... More

Ramsey's is consistently good. They offer fresh vegetables and seasonal specialties. It appeals mainly to those seeking comforting food that their families might have prepared. It's low key and relaxing. I've always had wonderful service. And the caramel apple pie is the best. I find its eclectic furniture and furnishings interesting and fun.

This place is Very affordable. I always get good food and great service. We also go to the one off Harrodsburg Rd. Ky classic is the Hot Brown - if you come to Lexington or Louisville - Get the Hot Brown. Unless you don't love cheese or bacon...then pick something else. They have vegetarian stuff too. Now don't get me... More

If you're in the mood for a southern meal and your family members' kitchens are closed, head to Ramsey's. You'll likely not leave mad though you won't leave ecstatic either.

This is a local favorite for good reason. We grew up here in central Kentucky eating home-cooked Southern food prepared by our mothers and grandmothers. This is like that so go there relax and enjoy yourself with satisfying portions of comfort food. Forget chain restaurants--they can't compete with this. Be sure and get dessert as they're homemade too.

We came to Lexington for the UK game, and we were excited to eat at the infamous Ramsey's. We were severely disappointed. The restaurant was hot inside, the sun was beaming inside onto the tables, blinding us. There were no curtain, so we were miserable. It took a very long time to get service, the servers seemed stretched too thin,... More
