Delicious American foods, perfectly prepared and reasonably priced . A large variety of ethnic foods are available, and service is excellent.

“Home cooking”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Service was slow. Food was greasy and typical home cooking. Don't go if you are on a diet as the calories in the food I am sure are really high.
Seating was tight. We were a party of 8 that I will say they were able to seat us straight away but I was disappointed in the food. I will say that American home cooking is not my favorite so that may be why I was not impressed.
I will say the portion sizes are really big so there was plenty of food and you will not go hungry!

“One of four Ramsey's locations”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Ramsey's is a local favorite chain that offers Blue Grass food - a cross between Southern and Country dishes. Ask for Corn Oysters (not on the menu), slightly greasy cornmeal cakes made with creamed corn, for an example of the cuisine. Fresh vegetables are especially good during early fall "Harvest Daze",

“Great eclectic atmosphere. Great food.”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Ramsey's has several locations in the area and the food is always great. Definitely home cooking at it's best in Lexington with many of Ramsey's signature specialties and topped off with Missy's pies! Service is always the very best.
