“great bbq salad”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Ate there today and food was good. But don't order butterscotch pie! Got a slice to go and it was awful. Butterscotch filling was only about a quarter inch thick and thick as mud (or clay) with no taste of butterscotch at all. Just sweet gummy goo. The meringue Was quite good though. Wish I had tried it there and I would have sent it back. I would have saved myself $5. Got a slice of mayday too but haven't tried it yet. Hope its good otherwise I'm out $10.

“Slow service, even for a Sunday”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

I've been going to Ramsey's for 20 years and always have enjoyed their Sunday brunch. It is typical to wait 20-30 minutes, after being seated, for brunch due to the crowd. The wait was over 60 and the food came out less than hot. I'l mark it down as a one-time event, but hope that they staff appropriately on Sundays...it's the best brunch deal in town!

“Good local cusine”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Great atmosphere, good service, reasonable price, good food. My wife and I dined here May 21, 2013 and enjoyed it very much. The Hot Brown was a little dry but good. The Veggies were good but a little bland. Would go back here the next time in town.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Great atmosphere to go along with amazing southern food. The catfish and hot brown are wonderful and their sides are all top notch.

“Fantastic Southern Food”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

When I travel, I like to get a bit of the "local" flair...this place had it in spades. The food was wonderful, fried green tomatos, friend chicken corn on the cob....a southern food bonanza. While the food took a bit long to come out, it was worth it in the end.
