Great beer selection and tasty bites

Much better than average pub food with an excellent beer selection. You can buy a growler of your favorite brew to take home and enjoy. Very attentive staff as well.

We arranged for the private room ($75 fee) for a 6:30 start time for 13 guests to host a family pre-Thanksgiving gathering in order to accommodate a hearing impaired relative. We arrived on time and the room was not prepared for us. The table was placed in the middle of the room with no place settings or water to indicate... More

I have visited the restaurant/bar before and enjoyed the beer and food. This latest visit was also good. Their porter is very tasty and the food wholesome fare. Service is quick and the staff are very friendly and professional. Certainly one of the better venues near to the Westin Hotel Wheeling.

This establishment in Wheeling's Restaurant Row continues to be a best bet for good food and excellent service. We had a private party and they were so flexible and helpful they made our party run smoothly the entire evening. They even kept track of my expenses so I wouldn't go over my budget... who does that any more! Thanks to... More

I seem to always lean toward a burger and its just OK. The servers and managers are very friendly and attentive. The bill with no liquor just seems a little high for a burger place.

Its a commercial place with beer and bar food. Nothing that stands out. I don't really like the bar atmosphere. SO, my opinion really doesn't say much.

Nice place, good beer, but food is nothing to write home about. Was there on several occasions and it's always the same story.

The food is very average. If you are into craft beers this is your place. They should serve pizza like the one in Texas. The Cobb salad was ok. The rest of the food I cannot recommend.

I've been to the Ram Brewery numerous times. Pleasant atmosphere, numerous tvs for sports, good food, I love the Vampire fries. They come with a garlic dip the consistancy of catsup, but garlic and white not red. They have so many beers! If you can't find something you like, face it you are not a beer lover. Come for a...
