Rams Head Tavern (which is connected to Rams Head On Stage, the concert venue), is a great place to go for a concert/dinner combo. My wife and I have eaten there three times and each meal has been excellent. The restaurant even gives discounts when you have dinner before a concert and wait service will escort you from the restaurant directly to your seats in the concert venue. Nice.
One of the things I like best about the music venue is its intimacy. None of the tables (individuals are seated at assigned seats at tables, so be prepared to meet strangers) are particularly far from the artists. The venue has a VH-1 "Storytellers" kind of vibe, and musicians seem to talk more (tell stories) between songs than when they play other venues. Some people may not like that, but I enjoy gaining the insight/background behind the music/lyrics.
The crowd can be a little stuffy/older. I am in my mid 30s and my wife in her late 20s. At all the concerts we've been to there (half dozen or so), we have usually been the youngest or one of the youngest people in the room. You do not have to get dressed up, but people don't show up in tank tops and shorts either. The shows we have been to have been in the pop/folk/jazz genre.
Tips: Some tables have limited views in that they are blocked by posts holding up the ceiling. You can clearly see these posts on the seating chart. Try not to get behind one! Also, try to not be on the left side of the stage (per the seating chart). All the artists I have seen perform there face forward, so if you are off to the left, you are looking at their right sides and butts. Finally, try and get a table that is away from the main aisles. There is table service and the waiters are constantly walking around. If they walk right in front of you all night, it can be distracting.
With some careful planning on seat selection, this is a top venue to see an up-close, intimate performance from quality musicians.
