We always visit Ramsey's when in Lexington. My granddaughter loves the place. I love the great selection and variety. They have so many vegetables to choose from and many are used in homemade recipes. The stewed tomatoes, fried green tomatoes, creamed corn and fried okra are just a few of the many choices. I also love this new location, the... More

Country cooking at its best! The service is always amazing whether you are a party of 12 arriving for dinner or you are a party of two stopping by for iced tea. The clearly marked vegetarian dishes are a godsend in country restaurant where many vegetable choices are often contain critters!

The Zandale location is great, and looking forward to using the patio in the Spring -- excellent service and food, as usual.

Family time: we all enjoyed delicious food, from beans and cornbread to salads and sandwiches, it was all good. And then you got the home made pies!!! Need I say more? We eat there often!

Everything is great! My favorite meal at Ramsey's is the pork chops with the red sauce, fried corn, potato salad, and fried okra. You can't come to Lexington and not stop in. You won't be disappointed. The 2for 1 Happy Hour will also will bring you in if you enjoy a cocktail. The Missy's Pies are awesome! Enjoy!

Great casual place to try a hot brown. I also enjoy the meat + 3 sides for dinner. The veggie plate is another great selection! They offer seasonal and local vegetables. Must try for Lexington. Should also get a slice of Missy's brownie pie with ice cream.

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.
