My son-in-law is from Kentucky and had talked about the Hotbrown sandwich so we had to stop to get one! Yummy cheesy sandwich unlike anything I've had before! Great menu with excellent friendly service!

I heard this was the best fried chicken in Kentucky - the whole meal was delicious. Great happy hour drinks and an amazing bartender - Johnna.

There's a little wait, which told me it was going to be good! The little store attached is a good way to shop while you wait. The service was very good.

Celebrating at Ramsey's was nice trip today. Had not been to a Ramsey's for years. I had strewed tomatoes, kale greens, and Cajun catfish, and hush puppies. Every thing was delicious,but I did not like the hush puppies. The servers were very nice.

Easy to get to from Interstate, clean and comfortable. Good and prompt service, which is always a plus while travelling. Much to my wife's dismay I wanted to share a Hot Brown sandwhich...which we did when we passed through a few years ago. Either my memory is bad, or the sandwich has changed...it just didn't seem as good as in... More

Home cooking, so many choices defiantly worth coming here. Great atmosphere and friendly employees. Both times we had to wait, but it never was as long as we were told.

I try to eat at one of the 3 Ramsey's locations each time I am in Lexington. Always good food in a clean and friendly environment. Be sure to get a piece of pie - they're delicious!!
