I recently had lunch at Ramsey's off Zandale and the burger, as always, was amazing! They use Critchfield beef which makes all the difference.

This was a great find for lunch on our way to Knoxville. Friendly staff and attentive service. Nothing flashy but had that down home vibe Food was plentiful and flavorful for the price. Worth the stop should we pass through that area again.

If you want excellent food with great prices, you do not want to miss out on eating at Ramsey’s Diner. I haven’t had anything that wasn’t delicious from their menu. And the pies...the pies are amazing slices of desert that you don’t want to leave...More

I’ve visited all of their locations except the newest over the years, with our favorite being the old building on High and Ashland next to Missy’s Pies, owned by Ramsey’s. Right on the corner, the occasional vehicle would rearrange the front wall. Guess that gets...More

I have been to Ramsey’s so any times I could not even guess! Lunch and dinner is always good. Expect country cooking. There are 3 Ramsey’s in Lexington at last count. They’re all the same. Food is good, drinks are good and price is average....More

We walked to Ramsey’s from our hotel because we heard they had the best Hot Browns around. Very good, but oh so hot....be careful not to burn your mouth! My husband had the Buffalo Chicken breasts (2 large fried breasts) with corn oysters, fries, and...More

Like another reviewer, Ramsey's is not what it used to be. Some menu items are still great like the Hot Brown, others are mediocre. Wish they would go back to the way they used to do things at this restaurant.

No change to the menu. Pies are still great as well. As far as atmosphere I would visit the one down on Old Harrodsburgs Road. There are some nice trees to find shade in if you happen to take the short stroll to the banks... More

The Zandale location has a private room and a covered patio. Either would accommodate your party. Call and speak to a manager for reservations.
