You feel warmly welcomed into Kentucky when you go to this place. The food is traditional, tasty, hot, and served by friendly Kentuckians, great accents and all. A great upgrade in space over the cramped downtown venue.

Had no idea what to expect, but knew my husband & I had to taste this local meal, before leaving Lexington. UNBELIEVABLE! The most delicious meal we have ever tasted! Not anywhere near healthy--bread, ham, turkey, Mornay sauce, brown gravy, bacon and all baked with fresh tomato slices on top! Worth every bite! We were told by the locals that... More

We stopped by for an early dinner after seeing the reviews here and were not disappointed. The food was great, portions were good, and service was helpful and friendly. We had a great meal, and would recommend this place.

Let me preface this review by saying I've been to Ramsey's before, and I greatly enjoyed it each time, and I will go back in the future. I will however, not go if I need to be somewhere quick and I absolutely will not talk it up to family or friends from out of town and then take them there.... More

I stopped by to pick up dinner after a long 14 hour shift at work. I just wanted something to serve my family and opted for a place close to home. I was surprised at the excellent favor of the food. The southern flair was great! The greens and chicken reminded me of my grandmothers recipes! I added coconut pie... More

Southern country cooking at its finest. Ramsey's is comfort food the way it is meant to be. The 'Hot Brown' is exceptionally good and cheesy. Missy's pies are to die for, my person favorite is the combo, creamy, delicious peanut butter filling with a chocolate brownie crust. You'll never go away hungry.

One can never go wrong with Ramsey's. Staff is always friendly & attentive. I've ordered the Veggie Hot Brown, the regular Hot Brown & the salads and it's always amazing. And dessert is always to die for as well. Thanks to everyone at Ramseys!!! Makes it difficult to try other places.

Went to Ramsey's with some friends because I was craving a KY Hot Brown. I have not had a Ramsey's hot brown in years, and I was not disappointed! The hot brown is among the best that I have had and will definitely be back for another as soon as I return to the area. I also ordered fried green... More
