The food here represents everything country deliciousness! The fried green tomatoes are a favorite, and as much as I tried to avoid the hot brown because it I know it's not good for me... It's so good for me!! And if you some how have room, get yourself one of their amazing pies :-)

Ramseys is a favorite among locals and tourists alike. They offer generous portions just like eating at Grandma's house. The service is typically fast and friendly with a down home feel like you are eating at Mel's Diner. Finally, the desserts are worth the trip alone, so be sure to save room for a slice or take home a whole... More

Found this place on Trip Advisor and we sure were glad we did! The decor is very laid back and the atmosphere is too. Our server, Ashley, was very friendly and took time to go through the menu with us. Prices are reasonable and the portion sizes are good. All of the vegetables that we had were delicious. The corn...

I was visiting my daughter for a couple weeks and we went to this Ramsey's and I really enjoyed it! I love how they have a "horse" theme all around, very clever! We sat in the bar and had drinks and dinner! They have a great happy hour and the food was very good! I look forward to visiting Ramsey's... More

We found out about this place from a friend who attended school here and they said if we were coming to Lexington. We had to eat at Ramsey's. Oh how glad we did!!! A great southern meal with a great atmosphere. Service was very quick and food was hot and tasty. Will definitely be back!

There are several Ramsey's around Lexington. Have been a bit disappointed in the one on Harrodsburg Rd.

Thought we would be wowed from the reviews but it was overrated. We ordered the banana pie and the chocolate was so bitter that we had to send it back (which never happens) for the tollhouse pie which was pretty good.

Casual dining restaurant, eclectic with various types of tables and colorful chairs. Local memorabilia on the walls. A friendly vibe. May Eat in or on their patio. Also, I sometimes call ahead for take out. Delicious food. I love the Yogi Chicken (lettuce) Salad, the Pork Chops with choice of sides, (lots of sides to choose from...even corn on the... More

If you don't like Ramsey's i don't like you. The kind of person who doesn't like Ramsey's is the type of person who likes waiting in line at the DMV, getting your teeth cleaned, and reads the owners manual to their car. Meaning if you don't like Ramsey's you are irrelevant.
