Visited the Ram during Gen Con and had a fantastic lunch. We tried several of their beer selections and they were fantastic and had great food as well. Service was even better.

Beer batter made with house brew. $11 with fries and decent slaw. Ice Tea was $2.79. Bar service was fast and friendly. ..

In town for some work, buddy said good place to go and was not disappointed. Tried the hillbilly burger and butt face ale, not to bad and I am not a big beer drinker. Nice place to eat, do stop by!

I always stop here at least once each GenCon. The beer is always great and I love their burgers. I should probably try something else, but I don't/

Just an ok experience. Served quickly but food was meh. Nothing special. My husband had short ribs- didn't really care for them. I had fish and it was ...ok. The craft beer was pretty good. If we come back, it will be for the beer.

This place has a great selection of craft beers. They also have great drink specials throughout the week. Didn't have a chance to grab a bite to eat but from what I saw on the tables the food did look pretty good.

The place looks nice, just the type of brewery bar I like, but don't waste your time. Place was very quiet, but still took 15 minutes to get a beer. Bartender Brian was too busy talking to his friends and filling drink orders from the restaurant to handle the bar. Ordered short ribs, they arrived cold and gristly, salad was... More

We stopped in after a long day of business stuff and had mouth-watering tender sirloin steaks. The scalloped potatoes on the side were like potato lasagna. The menu had been changed for the gaming convention to elven or something so I have no idea what craft beers we tried but they were all awesome. Not a per diem buster, convenient... More

Dined at the Ram twice during a four day stay in Indianapolis. Once with my 15 year old son and we had a late lunch which was very good. The server was very pleasant. The second visit was with about 40 people from our lacrosse team. (Mix of parents & children) We were seated in a private room and enjoyed... More
