Came in for a late dinner on a rainy Sunday night. We've been coming to Ramsey's for many years, and they never fail to please. Good service, good food, good atmosphere. We do kind of miss the original on Woodland Ave. though.

There isn’t really anything bad on the menu, and the prices are fair and portions ample. But the Missy Pies... save plenty of room. My daughter’s favorite is the peanut butter chocolate. Sugar coma afterwards... but worth it.
