“Great place for an event”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

I went to a rehearsal dinner here. They rented out the back room, which was small, but spacious enough for about 12-16 people. There was a fantastic buffet, and a server that periodically came around to take drink orders. All the waitstaff were super nice and accommodating. I cant wait to return to just hang out at the bar and catch a game :)

“Really great brunch and birthday celebration!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

We went to Ramparts for brunch on Easter and also to celebrate my mother's birthday. There were 6 of us and we were treated very well! The service was very good and our server was very attentive. The food was great, especially since some buffets are not always the best. They kept things nice and fresh and were constantly replenishing items. There was something for everyone and even with the desserts, although we had 2 at the table unable to eat pastries, they had a wonderful fruit bowl. It was a really nice experience and we had a wonderful time! I've been here many times at night at the bar and that's always fun, but they are also a wonderful restaurant.

“Best neighborhood burger”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Great neighborhood venue. A traditional watering hole, and sufficiently upscale never to be confused as a grunge bar. Still, very casual and laid back. Very welcoming. Good selection on the menu for food and drinks. Go there! Relax! Enjoy!
Our introduction through friends was their Monday night half price burgers. The burgers were worth the full price any other night, especially in that neighborhood venue.

“One of our favorite pubs”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

Ramparts is devised into two sections-beer/sports parlor and eatery/restaurant. If you want European/Canadian style men's beer hall you have it here- if for sit down eating hit the restaurant section. My wife and I enjoyed a pleasant evening there in late February and enjoyed greatly a plate of ribs. Finger sucking lip smacking good!

“Ramparts”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

This is a fun neighborhood restaurant, that has a variety of Italian, steaks, seafood, etc. on their menu. It's always packed so make a reservation. You can't go wrong with their ribeye, which is always good. They also have specials, and a large number of selection on their menu and a full bar. It's decorated really fun with booths and a fun restaurant with great service. The service staff has been there awhile if that tells you something. I always take one of my best friends there for her birthday at her request. The only thing is they took their wonderful scalloped potatos off the menu. My friends and I all loved those.. put them back on. Good veggies for sides. In the summer they have a little bit of outdoor seating but inside is so darling you kinda want to eat there.
