Good home cooking

This is an excellent local spot. They make great home cooked meals. They have excellent vegetable choices as well. Great family restaurant and a place to gather with friends.

We met his cousin's at their favorite local restaurant, Ramsey's Diner, for a nice meal while visiting family. The foods were terrific - They have Kentucky Hot Brown on the menu as well as a vegetarian version. Local beers are served (hubs was a little disappointed that there wasn't a stout on the menu) which always makes it a treat... More

Local place that features sandwiches and fresh vegetables. Have had almost everything on the menu and am never disappointed. My favorite is the cajun catfish appetizer and the veggie plate. Good service decent prices. ***Recommend

We were looking for a place to eat on Google and came across Ramsey's. Skeptical at first due to it looking like some random strip mall bar from the outside, we were soon blown away by the home style food that came to our table in generous, fresh,hot portions. Our server Sindey was wonderful, she was attentive to all our... More

If you want to eat great food, especially for me at least, the country fried steak, mac and cheese and fried green tomatoes, then they have to be on your to do list. Always consistently good, clean, friendly and filling. Should take any out of towner to visit for the regional food and fun atmosphere. I know one of the... More

Great food, terrific service, go with a friend for lunch or dinner. Restaurant is newly built but Ramsey's is at least 15 years in business. Support local businesses

Ramsey's dinners come with a meat and 2 sides, plus a dry flavorless piece of cornbread. The vegetables are cooked with meat so don't plan on controlling calories. They have several pie options for dessert but if they offer to warm it up be aware they will microwave it and turn the crust into cardboard flavor. Service was friendly.
