If you need some good homestyle cooking, Ramsey's is the place to go. I've only been to the location in S. Elkhorn Village, but it is very, very good! For a very reasonable price you can get a 'meat & three'. Love this place!

By far, hands down, no question best hot Brown in Kentucky. Local veggies supplied. All homemade food. The pies are the best pies as well. Not much on the hot brown,? Go with the breakfast. Best deal in Lexington.

All the food we have had is awesome, but the peanut butter pie is the best around. Great overall menu items with a home atmosphere

Twice recently we have met friends for dessert and coffee. Ramsey's at Tate's Creek is a great place to do that. We will be back and order pies again.

If you need good old comfort food and strong drinks you need to go to Ramsey's. Their catfish is superb in any form- southern fried, cajun and blackened. Their mac and cheese will put you in a carb coma. You have to have the good...More

No change to the menu. Pies are still great as well. As far as atmosphere I would visit the one down on Old Harrodsburgs Road. There are some nice trees to find shade in if you happen to take the short stroll to the banks... More

The Zandale location has a private room and a covered patio. Either would accommodate your party. Call and speak to a manager for reservations.
