Sunday lunch

Tastes great, large adult servings, wonderful waitstaff! Kids meal was a little light for my daughter but she loved having an extra side of mac n cheese. BLT salad was wonderful. We only had to wait 5-7 minutes. Make reservations if you have 6 or more people.

A local favorite, Ramsey's is always good. The Kentucky Hot Brown is certain ally a local favorite. I love the pork chops and in the season-CORN DAYS- serving the best local corn on the cob and other corn dishes. Leave room for their great pies!

I enjoy visiting this place whenever I visit Lexington. Love the fried pork chops- truly amazing. Always busy and usually a wait (5-10 minutes) the downside is they have virtually no waiting area and you end up standing just inside the door. That's my only gripe. The food makes it worth the standing.

I dare you to get a bad meal here! This place is awesome. I am hooked on the Hot Brown and any piece of pie they have. This is the perfect place to sample the Hot Brown, a local favorite. Each mouthful is a different combination. Nice crispy bacon crusty cheese coating over that creamy sauce covering the turkey, tomato... More

If you're looking for some good comfort food, this is the place. Can't go wrong. I have had most of the menu, and it is all good. I recommend the Cajun catfish, not too spicy but just right, you get a generous portion of fish and 3 sides and cornbread. Meatloaf is delicious also. There's a few locations in Lexington,... More

My husband and I went to Ramsey's for the first time. We are new to the Lexington area. The service was beyond great. We were greeted by the manager who sat us and got our drink order. He also gave us great recommendations for their menu. Their food is good old southern food. Delicious! Our waitress was wonderful! She was... More

We have loved Ramsey's for a long time and enjoy them all. I miss the one in Woodland Love the fried green tomatoes. The drinks are good and generally priced right. I usually get the veggie plate.

Stopped at Ramsey's for lunch on our way home from Paris, Ky. Not a bad place to stop for lunch. The menu is pretty specific but there are enough choices for most people in a party. The food was good but nothing special. They did however have some very good pies. The chess pie and black bottom banana were great.... More

Haven't found anything that I don't like. My favorite comfort foods are their Kentucky Hot Brown and Open Roast Beef Sandwich. And their pies are to die for. They have a wide variety daily but my favorite is their butterscotch pie. It reminds me of what my grandmother used to make. Also, awesome huge meal salads.

Great restaurant. Home cooking. 13 country style entrees combined with 3 veggies. Variety of 23 vegetables. Try the fried corn. It also serves breakfast all day. One price for the breakfast, but you tell them how many eggs, how much bacon or sausage along with home fried potatoes, grits and more. The food is excellent. I prefer the meat loaf,... More
