Picked up two perfect veggie hot browns after a day at Keeneland and couldn't have feasted on better food ! This was our second visit to Ramsey's and we couldn't wait to return for the celebrated cuisine .... Fantastic!

If you like gravy, cheese, and bacon, you want a hot brown at Ramsey's. The best sandwich I had in Lexington... And it will probably come back to haunt me when I'm 60 and my arteries are hard. Great service, crowded as all get-out at lunchtime, but absolutely worth the wait and coronary disease.

The food is pretty good but loaded with bacon grease. There is no calorie rating on each dish, but I can assure you it is very high. OK place to eat if you are not on a diet.

This restaurant is the only Ramsey's I visit. I'm a purist. I love the atmosphere, the neighborhood, and of course the food. There is something for everyone. And there's very good comfort food on the menu.

Ramsey's has several Lexington locations. Service is friendly but often harried. Food is traditional southern fare, prepared in as mundane a way as possible. OK for what it is, but you'll find most people don't linger here. These places can be a weird mixture of screaming kids and drunk basketball fans. But if you want a slice of Kentucky, you'll find it here.

Best thing on the menu is pie, many varieties, prepared by Missy's Pie Shop, owned by the same people who own Ramsey's. Suggestion: have your meal somewhere else, and drop by here for a slice of pie as dessert.
