Fantastic food, I had the standard Reuben and it was delicious. The service was great too. And the company made it even better.

Lived here since I was a teen. Don't even think the Brown Hotel's Original hot brown is as good. Love the atmosphere.

The lady at our motel recommended this restaurant as a southern, home cooking restaurant. Our meals was fabulous, the waitress was friendly and very accommodating. Definitely will be going back.

Home grown, hometown feel. The environment is very family friendly, wait staff is very attentive and the food is very filling. Just make sure you save some room for pie. Missy's Pie selections are amazing. You can get your pick warm or cold...enjoy.

We were seated by the door, which sucked cause it was very cold outside in the morning. I ordered the beast. This breakfast was huge for the price that you pay. It includes 5 eggs, pancakes, toast, home fries, bacon and sausage. A lot of food for 9.99. Needless to say I only ate about 1/3 of it. My boyfriend... More

Ramsey's has a good variety of "home cooked" meals. The service is always good. I often get carry out and eat inside the restaurant, both are very good.

Unfortunately, the meatloaf was a bit dry today. Perhaps I should have chosen something else. The mashed potatoes and fried green tomatoes were fine, however, I could have used some butter with the cornbread. The coffee was good and hot and service was good ad usual. Hopefully, the next meal will be up to their usual standards.

This is more or less a Cracker Barrel type of place: Breakfast served all day, stick to your ribs type of country cooking. Except I don't think the food is even as good. The only exception: Missy's Pies. They sell them here and they are huge pieces and really pretty good. Hard to have room for pie after so much... More

We had a large family group looking for a quick lunch while on a trip. The locals pointed us to Ramsey's diner and we had a delightful meal. There were good choices for everyone in our group--a vegetarian, a couple of seniors, and a toddler among us. The service was pleasant with a bit of southern hospitality--our drinks were refilled...

Ramsey's is a great place to take the family for a dine out. It's slightly on the pricey side, but for that special occasion it offers a wide variety of choices, good service and a reasonably good ambiance.

Thank Roger D
