The Ram is a chain restaurant, but they offer a wonderful bar area, a private dining room for small parties and catered events, as well as the larger restaurant area. Plenty of televisions to keep you occupied if that's what you like, however, it is also a comfortable place to just eat and talk with friends or family. Last, the... More

I can say what I ordered is what I got. I ordered the turkey cobb. I can't say I would order it again. The turkey patty was pretty tasteless. However it was as advertised. I do have to say they served the fries hot and crispy. The beer is good and the service was okay. Once he understood that we... More

Our quarterly association meeting was held there last night. If I were the one who organized it, I would be pretty upset. The room was much too small for 40 people. Maybe it could have been set up differently. Our server, Taylor, was very nice. Too bad he was the only server for 40 of us. Food took forever as... More

We had a reservation, but it took awhile to be seated. Only 1 of 2 appetizers came (although the second eventually came and was comped). Main entrees were not complete and or we're subpar, and the server disappeared for long stretches. In my opinion, a good place for beer and appetizers - not a meal.

Visited the Ram with a large party, 16.Only one waiter was assigned to take orders so it took a long time to get anything. When the food finally came, they mixed up similar orders so it took even longer to get that straightened out and the right order to the right person. Four people at the table ordered fish taco's...

The Ram is a brew pub on the upscale side of the genre. I arrived early on a Monday and had no problem finding a seat in lounge side. By the time I left it had filled in. The beers were great. I'm tired of over hopped, high gravity beers, these had a nice balance without outrageous amounts of alcohol.... More

I've been here several times and I am definitely a fan. If you've ever been to a brew pub in Wisconsin (like the Great Dane in Madison), this is very similar. They make their own craft beer- the selection is smallish but very good. Excellent burgers and appetizers too. Good place to go with both small and large groups.

The Ram is a very good bar / restaurant in Wheeling, IL. The atmosphere is nice and very clean -- everything from the entrance to the bar and dining areas and even the bathroom. The waitresses are also very pleasant, and service is fast for both food and liquor. I had drank a cocktail, and I do not recommend ordering... More

Decent food, decent prices, and large portions across the street from the Westin North Shore. Probably best value nearby the Westin.
