Ate my first hot brown here which was awesome!! The Parmesan corn on the cob was ok but not a favorite.

I can always count on Ramsey's to serve great food. Sometimes it takes a little while to get the food, but when you do, you will love it. There is usually a wait at the Hamburg location, because it draws a crowd, but they get you a table within 20 minutes. The staff is very friendly too.

Dinner was good but the pies are the star of the show here. Lemon yogurt chicken was tender, sides were not as impressive. The pies are simply amazing, crust is tender and melts in your mouth. Service can be slow but worth the wait.

This restaurant has some of the best Kentucky "home" cooking. Excellent staff, really good country food and an interesting atmosphere.

I had the cajun style catfish with mashed potatoes when I went there, and the catfish was seasoned very good. We were in a party of about 15, and other than them loosing our reservation we didn't have any issues with the food or the staff.

Ramsey's is the best local restaurant in Lexington. There are several Ramsey's in different parts of Lexington and each one has excellent service and food. We usually go to the one off Harrodsburg Road where it has a very neighborhood feel. The many sides are delicious and the meals are reasonably priced. I love all 3 types of catfish(regular and...

I thought the food was above average. The atmosphere was "fun" but not too loud. The service was above average. Definitely save room for dessert. The pies are the stars of their show!

Fun, casual diner with bar. Wait staff was friendly. Service prompt and food hot and good. Meatloaf - just ok (not like moms), fried corn (just like moms - yummm), green tomatoes (very good) was what I had for lunch. The portions were not huge but were just enough. I enjoyed my visit here - alone and won't mind to... More

Ramsey's Diner has been a Lexington staple for years and I have been going to the High Street location for an age. The restaurant is on the corner in an old building. It is not very handicapped/disabled friendly and, due to the building's "historic" status, does not have to come into code. I have a bit of difficulty navigating the... More
