Reviewed September 2, 2014 via mobile

Excellent country cooked food. I had fried chicken pinto beans fried corn and mashed potatoes with gravy it was just like mom used to make! Hubby had the pork chops. The portions are huge and the service was awesome too. This was our first time eating here we will definitely be back!!

“Friendly, down home cooking and service”
Reviewed August 31, 2014 via mobile

Our rule traveling is to never go somewhere we can go at home. We drove by Ramsey's and we are glad we did! Great food, great servers, great fix when there was a mix up, immediate attention from manager. All around great place!

“Still at the top of their game!”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

We have exhibited for years at the Woodland art fair and we always ate at the Ramseys across from Woodland park. It is gone now, so this year when we did the art show we decided to try the Ramseys on Helmsdale place off Man o war. The food was great and the service extraordinary.Thanks to our server Shaye who was quite good and checked back with us before we had to ask. I am not much of a meat eater anymore, but my husband told me they had the best burger he had ever eaten....and he was right! We both had the cheeseburger and I had several of their wonderful August vegetables...creamed corn was outstanding! We even went back there after the show closed and we were pretty muddy from the rain and teardown...no one cared..same wonderful service and food.

“Great local experience”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Stopped here with the family on our way from Chicago to Tennessee. We wanted an authentic local dining experience and we got exactly what we were looking for. The kids LOVED the chicken tenders. Buffalo chicken dinner was excellent and you have to try the fried corn! Save room for a giant piece of homemade pie afterwards. Worth it! About a half mile off I-75 just south of Lexington. Take the time to stop here even f you're just passing through instead of heading to the old roadside standbys.

“Great Home Cooking”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Wonderfully fresh vegetables and homemade meatloaf and pot roast. The corn, squash and fried okra were delicious. The atmosphere is very family oriented. The service is great. The brownie and peanut butter combo pie was unbelievable. We will stop there again.
