First time and we'll be back when in the area. Nice casual atmosphere with attentive staff. I had the meatloaf with greens, corn oysters, and Mac and cheese. Make sure you add the jalapeño vinegar to the greens. The Missys pies are great too make sure to save room.

If you're a real "foody" this may not be the best place for you. However, if you like food simply prepared with a touch of the South at very reasonable prices then you'll love it. I am indeed a local and have eaten at one Ramsey's or another for well beyond twenty years. Want a classic Hot Brown or a... More

This is where all the locals go. When we first moved to Lexington our realestate agent took us here. The food is DELICIOUS!! Trust me you will get plenty for leftovers. You should try Fried Green Tomatoes , a Hot brown, Fried Chicken, they are so good and they are Southern . You can relax in your jeans and feel... More

We had been told this was the place to go for southern food. I wasn't impressed. Nothing was bad, but it certainly wasn't outstanding either. The coating on the fried green tomatoes was a bit gritty and one of my companions said the mac and cheese was just average. I probably wouldn't go back.

If you love the idea of home cooking this is a great place to eat. Great choices. If you are use to home cooking everyday it may not be as special. I suggest everyone try it at least once, many people will return again and again. I have been 3 times and I live about a hour away.

Loved our first visit to a different Ramsey's location yesterday so much we tried this one today. Good service, good food, reasonable prices and clean. Like the pot roast the best so far and you just can't go wrong with the pie for dessert. Yes, it is diner food but once in awhile you need a fix and this is... More

Great restaurant for families. Offers a wide variety of good southern foods. Blackened catfish and fried Pickles were excellent.

Known for it's laid-back atmosphere and down-home, country-style cooking, Ramsey's has been a favorite with locals for many years. The original restaurant on the corner of Woodland Avenue has moved to Zandale Road, joining the second location off Harrodsburg Road,and three newer locations. I have eaten many times at the old Woodland location and now eat at the one on... More

The food is great. Home cooking with an extensive menu. 4-7 daily is happy hour. Top shelf liquor makes this a favorite neighborhood diner. My favorite is the Ky Hot Brown. They usually use in season vegetables and having a daily dish. Great food and great drinks = great time!
