Ramsey's Diner is a Classic of Lexington Eateries. You'll find a couple spread out around town. It's delicious and always packed. Especially in the summer when they have the Corn Specials going on (which you need to try). My favorite items on the menu are...More

The atmosphere in Ramsey's is so pleasant. The tables are not up against each other so you were not being bumped by other diners. The waitress we had was really personable and right on top of drink refills and napkins. She paid attention to the...More

This location is in a strip mall and not a place you would likely try if you're not a local, but don't be fooled. The menu is full of true southern, comfort food; fried green tomatoes, fried okra, Mac & cheese... I had fried chicken...More

Like eating at home without the fuss. I love the selection of southern favorites and for a weekend brunch the breakfast is all you want and more. If I am visiting Lexington, you can bet I will eat at Ramsey's.

Comfort food at its finest. Staff is always very friendly. Portion sizes are generous and moderately priced. The only thing I wish they would improve is the texture of their hush puppies.

We always have a fun time when we go here. The food is amazing, though most of our favorite things are very rich with very large portions. The pie is amazing. And our servers and hostess are always friendly and well-organized. Definitely recommend.

Need I say more:) the pies are awesome. They have great meats and veggies too. I have been traveling to the Lexington for over 20 years and Ramsey's is always on the list.

Tried this place for lunch on a weeklong business trip. It is a local favorite apparently. It's ok. For my preference and taste, it's ok. There were plenty of sandwich options- most included mayo and onion roll. I had the fried chicken sandwich which was...More
