A diamond in the rough

We went there for our anniversary lunch and our 17 year old son's birthday lunch...4 of us in total, PLENTY of food, and all for less than $60. Home cooking style food, great service, great atmosphere, and not your "run of the mill" food selection. The deep fried parmesan corn on the cob: amazing... read more

Great place for local treats. We split a traditional hot brown, fried green tomatoes, corn oysters, coleslaw and green beans. All the dishes had a southern flare to them. The restaurant is a locals hangout with a borderline country interior and lives up to the Ramsey's tradition. If you're looking for some southern comfort food this is the place to... More

We sat outside on the patio and had a wonderful meal! The server gave out grilled corn on the cob straight off the grill...delicious!

Great Lexington local diner food. Very good food, nice service, a must do for the full local experience. I and my group very much enjoyed the down-home hospitality, food, and service. Worth the visit. Get out of your comfort zone and try somebody else's comfort food! Great corn on the cob, fried Okra, pork chops, fried chicken, and a 100... More

We thought we were going to have dinner at a diner, well when we walked in we were amazed. Every chair was a different color or decoration, Memorabilia everywhere, just a cute atmosphere. This diner is known for their pies and so you will have to save room and try a slice.

If you want food that feels like home, OK better then home stop in at Ramsey's. Eat in or do like I do, call in your order but not too far in advance so you can get a two for one drink and visit at the bar. This ain't no KFC although Colonel Sanders was from just up the road... More

It doesn't get any better around here if you want country food. Cracker Barrel doesn't compare to this place. The veggie plate is a hit and so is the pot roast, bbq chicken, buffalo salad and each and every pie they serve. Save room for the pie! When corn is in season....lookout cause you are in for a real treat!

They make the best fried chicken and homemade pies. Creamed corn is good and the pickled beets. Wait staff is so friendly and atmosphere is fun.

I have been coming here for many years. Unfortunately the last few months the service has seen a steady decline. It takes over a half an hour to get food from the kitchen. While the food is good, it seems this is an extraordinary amount of time. I hope this improves as we do enjoy the food an coming here.

I don't know that I would call this a diner…maybe a restaurant as many tables and chairs and an extensive menu. Meals are a combination of meat selection and 2 sides, as well as a wide selection of sandwiches. The menu offers 'home cooking', but I opted for an inserted item on the menu- chicken salad with fresh, local tomatoes... More
