Always good at The Ram...

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.... read 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

We had 20 plus people to watch football and eat. The servers did very good in keeping everyone's food and drinks in order. They were very accommodating to our group. I had a salad and it was excellent. The bloody Mary was wonderful too.

A standard brewery & restaurant. The menu is dominated by a large number of sandwiches. Burgers & others. I tried a steak that was ok. Nothing special. I had bad luck with the waiter that was serving my table. He was too busy or didn't care. I'm more inclined to believe the latter. It's a good place to watch sports... More

I visited the restaurant twice during a trip to Wheeling and as I was on my own, sat at the bar overlooking the cooking area. The chefs and food preparation staff work hard and non-stop and assemble meals using pre-prepared packs - lots of plastic bags being opened. I found the food however good and tasty and better than other... More
