I definitely recommend this place. Food is always delicious. A creative twist to a meat and three. Great service as well

I love everything about Ramsey's! The corn sticks, creamed corn, pan-blackened catfish, cajun catfish, meatloaf, and the PIE! OMG! It is just all so good and comforting.

Over-rated by locals since they know the few dishes that are good. Our vegetables were tasteless. Fried foods were over breaded and cooked too much, think burned. Service was slow and it was not crowded. If you try ask around to find out what foods...More

Service is always very pleasant, everyone has a smile for you. Chicken livers are the absolute best. The pieces are large and the portions are very generous and cooked to perfection. Sides are just like home cooked. I really love going to Ramsey's anytime.

I saw one gentleman go to the bar with a dog on a leash. He might have been there for a takeout. But at any rate, the dog was in the restaurant. Would seem logical that they would therefore allow dogs on the patio,
