Quickish service and and friendly waiters and waitresses. Food reasonable although some of the more healthy options appear to have been taken off the menu in comparison to the last time I visited - more of a focus on burgers. Although my entree of fish tacos was good my creme brulee was rather disappointing - thin gooey creme and not... More

Big bright clean sports bar area is comfortable spot to lunch or hang out for games. Cheese beer soup and lettuce wedge is consistently good. Beer always cold and good service to match. Easy to stop quickly or linger. A favorite.

I go for lunch all the time. Can be a bit noisy if you are having a lunch meeting. Huge portions. Great food and service. I am not a beer person but I hear that they have great unusual beers.

So this place has a wide verity of beers on tap, both house and guest ales and some really interesting food on the menu such as burgers with blueberry jam on it! Really not expensive for what was there, good atmosphere and friendly & helpful staff. Also do 64Oz bottles of beer!

We like the RAM for comfort food, such as their ribs or meatloaf or loaded waffle fries. We're not beer drinkers but we get the reasonably priced cocktails. We go early so I can't really speak for how busy it gets at night or weekends. We find it comfortable and never had a bad server.

We were looking for a nice evening out at a restaurant nearby and chose The Ram. They do have a nice selections of beers and I had the Tripel and my wife had the Chicago Blond. That was the highlight of the evening. I had a burger which had no taste to it. The best part of it were the... More

They have good beer here but TERRIBLE service and not friendly server. We had a table of 7 and our service was beyond slow. My friend asked if they had a beer list and the server responded in a rude voice "right in front of u and behind me on the wall". My friend had never been there before so... More

Food was ready good! I recommend the mac 'n cheese and the ahi tuna tacos. Both were delicious! The beer on the other hand was just ok. Everything was reasonably priced and the server was friendly. Good experience overall!

It's a nice place with decent food. It didn't blow me away but it was good enough for me to give it four stars. I would go back if I were nearby.

Great menu with many options. Service was great, friendly, and fast for our large group of 21. Thankfully, they accepted reservations. I had a sirloin and it was prepared perfectly.
