Whle visiting Savage Mill my husband and I decided to stop in The Rams Head Tavern located at the mill. I ordered a cup of Cream of Crab soup and Beer Battered Shrimp.
The soup was described on the menu as containing lump crab meat and being flavored with sherry. When the soup was set before me there were "slivers" of lump crab meat sprinkled on the TOP of the soup. The crab meat had never been cooked in the "cream soup" at all. The soup was barely warm. The crab meat was not fresh and it contained shell. There was no flavor to the soup at all. There was no hint of sherry or any spice. I could not even finish it all because it was so bland and the temperature was tepid.
My entree was the beer battered shrimp. It was warm and had a nice batter, but I would have liked it to be a bit more crispy - perhaps the golden fried mentioned on the menu? For shrimp dip I was served chipolte aioli. It tasted like melted velvetta with spice (maybe they should have put it in the cream of crab soup). I suggest you request cocktail sauce for dipping your shrimp. The cocktail sauce didn't have much taste to it (could have used some horseradish), but was 100 times better than the chipolte aioli sauce.
My husband had a Righteous Rueben. It had sat on the plate long enough before it was served that the bread was soggy, especially the bottom slice. My husband described it as "soggy and not flavorfull".
All in all - not the best of eating experiences.
