Lots of Food For the Money

We were seated quickly and the food did not take long to arrive. It was tasty and the atmosphere was fun. Worth the visit for sure.

Longevity tells you something. Ramsey's has been around long enough now to be considered a Lexington icon. They've been able to make a success of the classic diner style "Meat & Three" served in a more homestyle setting. It a'int fancy but it's good and there's plenty of it. The meat entrees are always reliable, especially pot roast, meatloaf and... More

It's the same menu for years. Occasionally there are corn days, asparagus, or chicken salad. The pie dessert change frequently.

Have taken family here multiple times and it is always good! Fried chicken breasts and Cajun fries catfish are must haves. Each entree comes with 3 vegetables (2 at lunch) and they have a wide selection of veggies. Then to top it off, they have great pies. Prices are very fair, around $12 for two chicken breasts and three servings... More

We were on a horse barn tour in Lexington and our tour guide suggested we try the Hot Brown at Ramsey's . We did, and it was excellent! We also shared a warm piece of Pecan Pie ala mode. The place was nice and clean, and the service was very good.

Quickly took our name and called within 15 minutes. The long wait was waiting for the food. Once dinner arrived the food was great. I would highly recommend the pot roast and chess pie!
