IMO they have the best Hot Brown in town. Either the regular hot brown or the veggie one - they are both awesome. It's a great place for brunch as there is a wide variety of options and they also serve alcohol, what's brunch without a bloody mary? This is a very local place that has been around for years....

I have been here many times and have never had a bad experience. Its one of my favorite restaurants in Lexington. Service is great ,food is great and prices are great. Several locations in Lexington. My favs are the hot brown or Pork chops in red sauce or chicken livers with white gravy or the BLT salad.

My granddaughter and I had lunch together on our visit to Lexington, KY. She is attending the University of Kentucky and I wanted her to have a great home cook meal, even if I didn't cook it! She enjoyed her meal and so did I!

My husband and I go to this Ramsey's frequently. It's country style cooking in a relaxed atmosphere with good service and great prices. You cannot beat this, and you won't be disappointed. If you go, ask for the fried chicken. It is scrumptious. Or you might try their veggie hot brown. Lately my husband has been getting the zucchini burger.... More

There was a nice variety of specials which included a choice of 3 sides and, my Wife and I were both totally pleased with our meals. The iced tea was exceptional. In... More

Visited today while finishing up my Christmas shopping. First time I have visited this location. Previously visited the Harrodsburg Rd location which was good, but I like this location better. It is clean, and more brightly lit. The service today was excellent. While they weren't packed at 1130am, there were plenty of other occupied tables. I had the big breakfast.... More

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!
