Dined at Ramsey’s for lunch during their corn special and enjoyed the crisp corn on the cob. The fried chicken was done nicely and the catfish was also good. Friendly waitstaff and reasonable prices make for a great lunch spot.

Frequently stop by for breakfast after church on Sunday. Opens at 9 and close to our house of worship. Great service, wonderful breakfasts. Lots of seating indoor and out. Toy chest for the kids. One of several Ramsey's locations in Lexington. All are great.

No change to the menu. Pies are still great as well. As far as atmosphere I would visit the one down on Old Harrodsburgs Road. There are some nice trees to find shade in if you happen to take the short stroll to the banks... More
