    The food was decent. We chose the restaurant based off their gluten free menu. Unfortunately this location seemed very unorganized. Hostess was nowhere to be found. Waiter was nice but overworked. Long wait just to place our order, he seemed rushed when he was with us.

    While the food was decent, all I could taste, in everything from the burger to the chips to the chocolate chip cookie skillet was salt. So if you need to watch your salt intake, not the place for you.

    I found this place and took my boyfriend for his birthday. He got the beer battered jumbo shrimp which was amazing! Not too heavy and full of flavor. I got the salmon and was very delighted by the simple, yet delicious, grill and seasonings. The $20 bottle of Prosecco paired nicely with our dinners and the ice cream cupcake was to die for! It was small for two, but it ended up being so sweet, so sharing ended up being the best option. Our server was underage, so he could not bring us the Prosecco, so another waitress came to open it for us. The only problem was that she didn't know how to open a champagne style bottle, so I had to talk her way through it. Other than that, we had a great time and my boyfriend was very pleased.

    There are some other restaurants in your area known for being good Steakhouses, but very expensive alternatives. We chose "RAM" thinking it would be a more reasonable choice. Unfortunately, it wasn't. I chose the 18 Oz Ribeye with a baked potato. This was cooked wrong, looked like a 12 oz, wasn't very flavorful, and you could tell the small thing called a baked potato had been cooked a day or two before by the yellowing of the meat. My wife had Salmon, but was not given her steamed veggies that were supposed to come with the meal. Only one in the party was happy with a huge burger that made everyone regret our choices. Save your money, and go to an Applebee's. At least you know your getting substandard food for much much much less.

    Needed to meet some friends staying near O'Hare and knew that they wanted something that was "budget-friendly'. This fit the bill nicely--convenient location, lots of choices on the menu and unlike most of the other restaurants in the area, not too expensive. Wait staff was very nice also!

    Stopped for dinner before heading to the Allstate Arena. Not my first time here, but it was for my 3 friends. We all enjoyed our meal. The steak sandwiches were excellent. Cooked the way we like them and not an ounce of gristle and very tender. The shrimp were not heavily battered and were good sized. The only disappointment was the beer soup which was just so so. Our waitress was extremely pleasant and friendly. Over all, a great place to stop and have a bite to eat.

    it was so loud in the dining room we asked to move to an outdoor table. Once we moved, the service became painfully SLOW. From the time we finished eating it took 40+ minutes to get our check after asking twice for it. I finally got up and found the waiter and grabbed the check from him so we could leave.

    I knew from the second I walked in something was wrong. It was a Saturday night and the place was dead. We were seated promptly and our drink orders were taken and delivered right away. The service was great! The food not so much. We each ordered steaks. I ordered a medium-rare and got a well done steak. The manager had the cooks remake the steak without hesitation but when it came back it was extremely rare and bleeding! I apologized before asking to have them put it back on but there was no way I was eating a raw steak! After that it finally came back medium/medium rare. The manager ended up taking the meal off our check. The food was subpar. The veggies were very bland. The price wasn't that bad & that's why we chose the place.

    We came here for a nice lunch. It was a party of four, and we had a great time catching up. The noise level was quite loud, but we still heard eachother. The food was great. We all tried eachothers and nothing tasted bad. Our waitress, Maddie, was great as well! She was nice and checked on us often. No one left hungry, and for the price we were super satisfied. I'm sure that I will be back for more!

    Service was excellent and enthusiastic. Burger are great and so are the fries. The baked beans are a 10 out of 10. They don't get any better anywhere. The RAM brand wheat beer got a good review from our group: the RAM brand IPA fell short of expectation for a "craft" IPA by today's standards. Overall, i would gladly eat and drink here again. The Ram is a solid value and a good group experience. After an Allstate Arena event, you should stop here for an awesome burger and some fun.

    Service was great. We're picky about our drinks and they accomodated us very nicely. Waitress always showed up at just the right time and was never annoying. The food is good. I couldn't say it stands out especially, but its a sold pleasant meal. The only complaint I have is that its quite noisy making it a little hard to carry on conversation. There is a lot of salad and sandwich kind of things and just a few real dinners, which surprised me a bit.

    I met a sorority sister, who I hadn't seen in about 5 years, at the Ram in Rosemont for lunch on Friday, March 28th. We met at noon. She needed to leave at 1:30 sharp for another appointment. We let our server know that, and he made sure that we were served promptly. He also agreed to take our picture with my phone. What a great guy. I wish I remembered his name. The food was quite good (I had a steak salad, my sorority sister had fish and chips). My only complaint (and this is my issue with most restaurants these days) is that the noise level made it hard to have a quiet conversation. I feel like we were shouting at each other most of the time. All in all though, it was a great lunch at a fun venue. We'll be back.
