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.

About as good a brewpub as you'll find in the NW burbs. Decent variety on the menu and various seasonal beers. Their year round beers are good, but nothing special.

you can go here for beer and not so good food. We have had office parties here. Not a great place with families. More of a sports bar.

This is a pub /craft beer type restaurant. the menu has plenty of selections. My portobello mushroom burger was actually one of the best I have had and my friend meals, burgers, chicken sandwich and salads were large portions . Everyone loved their meals except the Kale and Quinoa salad was practically all Kale, little quinoa or dressing. I had... More

After a day of biking in Chicago, we had dinner at the Ram. We had a young college student as a server named Kristopher and he was awesome! Made our night. He was so friendly and competent. Food was good and came in a timely fashion. The manager stopped by to see how things were and we gave him the... More
