We had one night in the area and wanted a good local spot. Big menu and good service. We went Sunday night and it was crowded. Parking in front. We would go back again.

I still think about the blue cheese dressing at this place. It's old school homemade good. We had a variety of things and enjoyed them all. The burgers were good. The pintos and cornbread was very good. All in all, just basic good, enjoyable food.

The portions are HUGE. However, the selection for breakfast is very slim (only about 5 choices). The food is fresh and service was fast and friendly. We'd never eaten here. Good for a first try, but I'm not sure we'd go back.

.... food was so tasty that I wanted to order the same again. Only reason not 5 stars is that waitress didn't ask if I wanted anything else. She just brought the check. As I type this review I'm sitting here trying to decide what to order next, if anything. That's how good the food is. I should add that... More

Ramsay's is the perfect family dining place in Lexington for family meals, business, or even just to gather with friends for drinks and food. Menu covers all tastes and the portions are huge. We have taken travelers from Barendredcht NE, Sao Palo,Brazil, China, Australia, and Texas that want to experience Ky Foods. No one left hungry. I remember being partial... More

I had my first hot brown and loved it (took half of it home for another meal). My husband started with Maker's Mark, and for dinner had really tender pot roast, acorn squash, sweet potato, and creamed corn. Our only regret was that we had no room for dessert! Atmosphere is casual and good for families.

Great homestyle cooking. Large portions. The blackened catfish is my favorite. And you have to try to save room for pie. Or get a piece to take home.

Ate here twice. Once for dinner and the next day for dessert. Large menu of good country cooking. Good prices and large portions. We had the vegetable plate and fried pork chop dinner. Everything was excellent. (especially the creamed corn!) Service was friendly and food arrived quickly. Although we don't drink, we did see others drinking beer and bloody Mary's,... More

Seven adults and five children had a great Sunday dinner for less than $100! Great selections of family style meals including Pot Roast, Fried Chicken, Pork Chops, Rueben sandwiches,zucchini burgers, etc. Large selection of vegetables including Fried Green Tomatoes. Great pies and other deserts. Four locations in Lexington, all great!
