A lot of good food for a good price

I had the fried chicken breast (yum) - (meat and three) with parmesan crusted corn on the cob (yum), house salad (pass if you are from CA), apple fritters (yum), a corn breadstick, and chocolate cream pie (yum).

Ramsey's has great fresh food with excellent service. Because the food is local the menu is limited with lots of seasonal specials. I like to go in on Sunday mornings for breakfast, my favorite is the pork chops with the Ramsey Red Sauce and get my required Infused Bloody Mary. A great way to start ones day.

Sunday's brunch is delicious. On top of that after eating your meal you can order a delicious pie as desert.

My husband and I like to go to Ramsey's Diner - we have never had anything that we don't like! And it's the law that you MUST get pie for desert!

I love Ramsey's and there are several right here in the area. Each one is consistently good with home cooked options like meatloaf to great burgers and desserts. The yogurt chicken is my personal favorite and love that I can have an Ale 8 with it!

I was there to have dinner with 3 friends last night. Deep fried pork Chops yum yum. The Sweet beats are assume as well. The service was a little lack lustered but I take into account how busy they were overall a 10 out of 10 in my book. Take the time to check it out. We will be back

This is my families go-to restaurant in Lexington when we are wanting genuine home-cooked style local favorites. The portions are generous and the prices are very reasonable. The restaurant is always clean, and we find the staff very friendly and accomodating. I highly recommend!

Ramsays is a dependable count on American restaurant with great down home cooked meals. Whenever I have friends from out of town we are sure to hit Ramseys, everyone can find something on the menu to please them.

We visit this restaurant once or twice a month. It is a great place to go to get some comfort food and most of all pinto beans with onions (aka soupbeans). Although not as good as my Mom's - they are still very satisfying. Rasmey's offer more veggies than just about any other restaurant in Lexington and you can get... More

Food was good. Wait time wAs a little long. Waitress didn't offer to refresh our drinks until we asked. I'd still recommend Ramsey's on the food alone.
