Great Sports Bar – I have been a frequent customer of the Ram for about 10 years. This is my neighborhood sports bar to watch big games and especially UW Husky games. The food is great and the staff is always friendly. I have tried many different items on the menu and all have been great. Good job to the entire Staff!!!
Great food and beer! – My experience at the Ram was pretty good. Me and a buddy of mine had dinner there and it had a really good atmosphere. We went during a UW home game, so we thought that we would have to wait a good 30 to 40 minutes to be seated, but even though the place was packed we got seated within 15 minutes. TV's everywhere made viewing of the game really easy. I forget my waitress' name, but she was very nice and knowledgeable about the menu items. I ordered the king crab artichoke dip for an appetizer, it was delicious! It probably isn't best for a healthy diet, but if you're looking to indulge on some good dip, that's one to get. I didn't see many super healthy options, other than the typical salads. But coming to a restaurant/ brewery, I assume most people wouldn't be looking for a very diet friendly meal, although the option would be nice. For dinner, I ordered the crab and shrimp cake sliders which were great! It was a good amount of food, and coupled with a side of soup, it was pretty filling. My buddy ordered the total disorder porter burger, which was a monstrous burger. I got to have a bite of it and it was really good. I got a milkshake, which was kind of mediocre. My friend got a beer that was pretty good, it tasted very fresh and nice of tap.
Overall, the atmosphere was great. It could use a wider variety in the food menu, but still good food and beer. The service was decent, not the best I've had but still made my dinner experience a positive one.
Nice atmosphere, horrible customer service – I went there for lunch on a Friday and the greeter was very unprofessional; look, attitude and conversation wise, called corporate and the general manager to that store called me back on a Monday and seemed very rude. They were asking about my complaint and 100% was for the employee instead of wanting to take the time to listen to my experience. I felt more attacked then listened to. Food was ok but over priced. I would not recommend it to anyone and I will not ever eat there again.
Average Food but Terrible Customer Service – The resturaurant looked nice but my experience quickly went downhill when it took 10 mins for a waiter to even notice that we had been sitting there. I had to get our own menus. My food didn't come as I ordered it. While we were sitting there I kept seeing other customers going up to the waiters and asking for things like refills and the check. The food was mediocre and I would never reccommend it to anyone.
Over priced for below average tasting food – I really do not see what the hoopla is all about regarding this chain of restaurants. The food is below mediocre for the price they charge. Their lunch menu on the weekends has prices starting at $8.99 and that's for an appetizer!! My daughter ordered a teriyaki chicken sandwich, which was overdone (hard and tough) and my clam chowder tasted straight from a can. If you are desperate or just have money to burn and want to patronize a noisy place with unexciting tasting food, try this chain. Personally, I refuse to be a lemming.
Good Beer! OK food and large crowds – Sign up on their web site for the MVP Club, and get a coupon for a free hamburger plus the usual birthday dessert deal. The Blonde is very tasty, but the Buttface Amber Ale is the winner. There is good beer on tap at The Ram. This place can get packed in both the family style dining area and the large bar section; so beat the crowds and get on the waiting list early. The hamburgers are the way to go. They aren?t fantastic, but they are pretty darn good after a few beers. It?s simply medium quality American style food in a casual setting with good beer. If you enjoy beer then you definitely want to give The Ram a try.
Good beer, overpriced food – Living close to U-Village, I have been to The Ram quite a few times. It has good beer and pretty good food, but the food is definitely overpriced. Another con is that it is pretty much always crowded. Their Thai Chicken salad is pretty good, but is also like $12 or $13.
Put you name in - then take care of your shopping – This is definitely a fun place to go when you feel like celebrating. The Ram is infamous for their Mile High Mud Pie and if someone in your party manages to eat the whole thing themselves it?s free! The atmosphere is especially exciting on Husky game nights and packed with UW students and alumni. The Ram doesn't take reservations though, so make sure and come early to put your name in.
Decent Beer, Terrible Food – Their food is WAY too expensive for the amount you recieve. We ordered the appetizer sampler (it sounded big on the menu) and it wasnt. The beer was pretty good, the mixed drinks I had were OK. Overall, there is much better in the UDistrict for brewery/restaurants. Have eaten here a few times, wasnt impressed either time.
Atmosphere – A good place to go for happy hour. Fun atmosphere, good deals. Also a great place to enjoy your favorite team.
