The food is clearly homemade and good quality. The atmosphere is funky and cool, filled with memorabilia from many decades in this country including various sports and elections to political office. This is a find!

Went to the Ramp, on a Tuesday night and it was very busy. The waitstaff and bartender were very welcoming. It was our first visit, recommended by friends and the staff at The Tides Beach Club. It was great. The food was perfect. Many different varieties. The atmosphere is very casual with lots of memorabilia to look at. It is... More

As visitors we would never have found this place but we got chatting to a local who recommended it. From the outside it looks like a fishing tackle shop, covered in hundreds of fishing floats and tucked away under another establishment. Rammed with sporting and political memorabilia this cramped little bar is full of charm. Good service and food for... More

The location and ambiance are great. Fun, if crowded, decor and good service. The food was mixed. We loved our onion strings and crab cakes but the fried clams were just average.

We visited in September and had a short (very short) wait for a table. Dined on the Jonah crab cakes which were good but very different from the meaty Maryland crab cakes I was used to. My partner had the Lamb Pappardelle and I had the Mixed Seafood Grill. He enjoyed his and I could have eaten mine every night... More

Always, always fantastic! Great ambiance, food, service! Cape Porpoise is a little fishing village with a few restaurants. This is my fav! Love the atmosphere!

Let me just start with, the staff is great & the food is good. Right on the water. Beautiful sunsets. Now about the Flies OMG there were quite a lot. Then the mouse ran by a few times while we were eating. I'm all done with that.

The Ramp is in a great location and almost every seat has a view of the water. We visited in Sept and the food was decent, but the service left a bit to be desired. We had lobster rolls and they were good, although they did have celery and onion, which isn't my personal taste for a true New England... More

Everything is handmade...even the chips on the nachos. Delicious lobster rolls. Service was fantastic! Really small but tons of character. A hidden gem! We will be back!

I went here with four other family members and all the food we got was so delicious. The chef clearly knows what they're doing, respecting the ingredients and putting together really well balanced and beautiful dishes. It's a surprisingly good menu in a little downstairs venue with sports and political memorabilia. The staff was friendly and the location is just... More
