The vegetables were fabulous. The meatloaf only alright. It seems to always be busy, so plan for that. The waitress was alright at best, but we would still go there again. The prices were reasonable.

This is my second time eating here. First was during a job interview. It was really good but didn't get to appreciate the atmosphere. The food, service and old time dinner atmosphere is really great. Will definitely be returning soon.

I am in Lexington once a year and never fail to go to Ramsey's for their Hot Brown (or as I call it, "Heaven on a Plate.") The staff is always friendly!

For years we have dined at Ramseys. There has never been a disappointing meal. Today I enjoyed the hot brown and my husband had the Buffalo tender salad. We followed up with a chocolate praline pie warmed and a scoop of ice cream. Yum!

One of the best restaurants for home cooking in Lexington. Amazing homemade pies! The vegetables are fresh from the farm when in season.
