Home grown, hometown feel. The environment is very family friendly, wait staff is very attentive and the food is very filling. Just make sure you save some room for pie. Missy's Pie selections are amazing. You can get your pick warm or cold...enjoy.

We were seated by the door, which sucked cause it was very cold outside in the morning. I ordered the beast. This breakfast was huge for the price that you pay. It includes 5 eggs, pancakes, toast, home fries, bacon and sausage. A lot of food for 9.99. Needless to say I only ate about 1/3 of it. My boyfriend... More

Ramsey's has a good variety of "home cooked" meals. The service is always good. I often get carry out and eat inside the restaurant, both are very good.

Unfortunately, the meatloaf was a bit dry today. Perhaps I should have chosen something else. The mashed potatoes and fried green tomatoes were fine, however, I could have used some butter with the cornbread. The coffee was good and hot and service was good ad usual. Hopefully, the next meal will be up to their usual standards.

This is more or less a Cracker Barrel type of place: Breakfast served all day, stick to your ribs type of country cooking. Except I don't think the food is even as good. The only exception: Missy's Pies. They sell them here and they are huge pieces and really pretty good. Hard to have room for pie after so much... More

We had a large family group looking for a quick lunch while on a trip. The locals pointed us to Ramsey's diner and we had a delightful meal. There were good choices for everyone in our group--a vegetarian, a couple of seniors, and a toddler among us. The service was pleasant with a bit of southern hospitality--our drinks were refilled...

Ramsey's is a great place to take the family for a dine out. It's slightly on the pricey side, but for that special occasion it offers a wide variety of choices, good service and a reasonably good ambiance.

My husband & I were on vacation in Lexington, KY and this place was recommended to us. We both enjoyed the food very much. It was great! The waitresses were very nice. As we were waiting on our food we noticed how busy everybody working there was....Hopefully we'll have a chance in the future to eat here again!

There is a variety of country food and delicious pie choices. The staff was very attentive and friendly. Going earlier in the evening would be helpful for noise control and seating because it is a busy place.

The tables are so close together it's almost impossible to get the chairs pulled out far enough to slide into them. Also very noisy. No conversation with others at your table is possible. But you can hear conversations at the tables around you as they are shouting to their companions. Food was good but not for people on a "healthy"... More
