Great brew pub. Ram has locations in Chicago, Denver (under the CB and Potts brand), and Seattle. Beer is always very good. Had a new organic IPA today called Big Dread. Excellent IPA, please give it a shot. Dinner has always been decent on previous visits. Had lunch today and their sandwiches... read more

I was recently in Wheeling on business and went to the Ram with some business partners. 2 of us order the Fish and Chips. The fries were good but as I got into the center part of the fish it was still raw. The other guy that also ordered the fish had the same problem. The management was real nice... More

We love Rams. They have EXCELLENT burgers. We are never disappointed. We always get the burgers, but took some friends there for dinner one night. They ordered various items and it all looked great. They were pleased with their orders.

And on a Wednesday night with no specific game being broadcast I was surprised at how busy it was. We had our own room and the food provided was good. BBQ and the best creamy mashed potatoes ever. It is obvious that the locals like it so that is a good endorsement.

I'm a devoted Beerhead so The Ram is my kind of place. I have met the brewer here and he was nice enough to give me a tour of the brewery too. They make some very good craft beer here and the food is nice too. There is a comfortable dining room here with sports on the flatscreen TVs, etc.... More

I've been there a couple times in January while in town on business. Both times with a small group. We were there to socialize, have a couple beers and some food. I can't speak for the restaurant side of the house, but the bar area is large with lots of seating. The in-house brewed beers are good, and there are... More

It's a nice place. Well maintained. The menu is diverse. The service was good. The food was slightly above places like Friday's. Overall it's a decent place to eat.

The menu has a little something for everyone here and all the food I've had is pretty good. I had the pulled pork P.I.G sandwich - good tasting pulled pork. Fries were just OK. My daughter had the corn dogs off the kids menu. They tried to make the corn dogs more interesting recently by deep frying, but that's not... More
