The menu had an exceptional variety of delicious items to choose from. I had very delicious fried chicken and some absolutely amazing Mac n cheese, and others in my group had the hot brown which looked absolutely delightful. And you can't eat here without having the pie!

I've had both lunch and dinner at Ramsey's over years of visiting Lexington. It has the best real Southern food in town. The staff is friendly, the service good and the food great. Love it!

A diner environment, our country fried pork chops and fried chicken breast made from scratch. The fried green tomatoes were awesome and the pecan pie a great finisher. Friendly, homey service.

While visiting my parents, we went to Ramsey's three times. Had breakfast with eggs, pancakes, bacon instead of a normal dinner. Fresh veggies, fruit, pies make icing on the great food and service. Great place to take kids and prices are very reasonable.

This spot is busy, yet friendly...reminds me of "family dinner at grandmas"...the portions are large & there's plenty to choose from...I recently ordered the vegetable platter & then splurged on the best piece of coconut cream pie I've had in years. Yum

Seated quickly. Friendly service. Reasonable prices. Pies were the best part. Had the May Day (aka Derby) pie warmed and served ala mode. Delicious! Family has peanut butter pie and apple pie. Both commented it was good as well. My meal was veggie plate. It was ok. Would go back again.

Ever since college days in Lexington this has been favorite restaurant. Great selection of sides. Fired green tomatoes, kale, and stewed tomatoes are not sides you can get anywhere. Favorite entrees are buffalo chicken and Cajun catfish. All pies are good also.

Excellent place to dine for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Great food! If you are looking for a meal similar to that in which you cook at home, then I highly recommend Ramsey's Diner.

Ramsey's Diners (several Lexington locations) all offer Kentucky-based and Southern implied foods, and wonderful pies. They'll even provide a half-entree of both their standard Hot Brown and the fantastic veggie hot brown (my personal fave).

Thank ddsettl
