Diner Reviews
  • "We made reservations, but changed our minds once we got there to sit in the bar area instead. We ended up waiting for a while because some people decide to just hang out after their bill was paid. Once we did get seated the food was great, the waitstaff was on point and the sample tray of beer was awesome! We will be back for sure :)"

  • "It's a great place to hang out. The ambience is awesome. I recommend this place to every one."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "I thought one of the best things about Ram was the friendly and attentive service. The wait staff was well trained and kept a good eye on the table, but from a distance. We felt well taken care of."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Had to send the ribeye back--very over cooked and was not a good cut of meat. Other food was just ok. Fish on Fish taco lacked seasoning and didn't appear to be blacked, but the topping was very tasty."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "After reading other reviews we felt safe going here. The beer was very good but the food was very weak. My husband ordered ribs, $22, and the portion was not what we expected. I ordered the Buffalo chicken salad, it was a big bowl of romaine with ranch and some chicken strips. Nothing special at all. The beer cheese appetizer was meh also. The setting and service was really nice. Our waitress was on top of everything and the restaurant had a nice decor. The kids ate their food, burger and chicken, both were standard kids meals they ate it up. Won’t return, there are too many other spots in the area to put up with so so food."

  • "Very comfortable and laid back atmosphere. The staff and management are a delight and will go out of their way to make you happy. My last visit there, they made a special batch of gluten free chips because they had run out. I asked them not to go through the trouble, but the manager insisted. He was incredibly nice and its because of him we've now made this RAM location in Schaumburg our top choice for after work drinks and apps. Just wish happy hour ran a little longer. ;)"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "The table we sat at was near a window and my feet were colder inside than they were outside! Our server was very friendly and knowledgable. The food I ordered was missing a few items and lacked any real flavor. Good beer and a vibrant scene always make me come back though."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "We made our reservation on my Open Table app just 30 minutes before arriving. We were promptly seated when we arrived. Our food was excellent, the portion sizes were generous, and the service was good. They have an interesting list of beer choices and the ones we chose were very good."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "The food was amazing. Our waitress Madalyn was one the best servers I ever had. I like my steak medium rear and most places always over cook it, this place made it perfect! We were sat near the windlw and the only complaint was that there was an aweful draft."

  • "It feels like a chilis. I was hoping for more, but the noise level was reasonable, and the server was really nice."

  • "We were a party of 4 on a Saturday night. It was our first time. The ambience was nice and it wasn't too loud. Our waitress was very nice and the food was delicious....the place was very nice and classy."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "I had the blackened Mahi tacos. Kinda just okay. Spanish rice was the worst. Bland and soggy. The beans were average. The place looks like a good time and could've been. Something smelled delicious as I walked in but it definitely wasn't what I ordered. I'll try another place before I think about coming back."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Had a double date here and we were able to carry a conversation in a comfortable setting. Waitress gave good recommendations. Would definitely come back!"
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "Great food and decent beer as always at the Ram. The service however was not good this time. We lost our waitress frequently once for 15 minutes waiting for drinks. It was not busy there."
    Dined on 1/12/2014
  • "We went to Ram to have dinner with friends that we have not seen for awhile. The ambience was perfect - casual and comfortable. The server was great about giving us a little time to catch up before taking our order. She checked in frequently, but didn't rush us. Food was served in a timely manner and drinks were always quickly refilled. The server was attentive and friendly throughout the evening. All 4 of us chose a different entree, and everyone was pleased with their selection. All of our plates were cleaned by the end of the meal. I would definitely go there again for an evening out with friends. I doubt we'd take our family there. With 3 kids it would be a bit pricey and I don't think I've ever seen a coupon or discount offered."

  • "Ram is a very nice restaurant. Nice decor and ambience. Very good food and beer. A great place"

  • "Food was excellent and service was great. Would definitely go back."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "Atmosphere is a nice typical bar/restaurant vibe. Food is about average with a selection of burgers, sandwiches, appetizers, etc. If you are a beer lover this is a great place for you to sample craft beers. For those that are looking for cocktails or wine, this is not the place as they were under poured or not mixed correctly. Our service was fair to poor as our party of 8 was not waited on frequently enough. Glasses remained unfilled for some time. Not sure if I would ever come back."
    Dined on 12/9/2013
  • "This was our second visit to Ram. Overall, the evening went fine. The food is generally good, although on this occasion the ends of my burger were burnt, making it less enjoyable. The portion sizes are generous. The service was lacking somewhat. It took our server fifteen minutes to bring our a root beer float."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "The food was great and our waitress was phenomenal. The scene was awesome and it had a great sports bar/brewery feel. The only setback was that the hostesses were extremely rude and almost refuses to give us the correct amount of menus. Once we were seated though, the waitress was the best waitress I ever had."
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "Server was slow and inattentive. He never checked on us after service. Would be hard pressed to go back."
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "This is your place. Food is decent, not stand out. Beer is decent. Decor needs to be updated. Great TV behind the bar. Our server was more interested in talking to the hostesses rather than taking care of anyone."
    Dined on 11/17/2013
  • "Great place to get together with friends to watch a game. Lots of TVs to watch while you eat in the sports bar area. If you don't want the sports bar there is a quieter area on the other side of the building. Food is good for a sports bar and lots of local beers to choose from. Our server was very good and quite attentive to our table."
    Dined on 11/18/2013
  • "The Ram was the best place for us to meet. There were 5 of us and we used to work together 20 years ago. We were seated at a table that was out of the way and quiet enough for us to talk (and hear). The menu has a variety of food to meet everyone's needs and food desires. The adult beverages were delicious."
    Dined on 11/15/2013
  • "The food was just ok. The fried pickles were good, but the burger was overdone. I never know why they ask how you want it cooked if they are going to make it well done anyway. This would have received a higher rating if the burger was cooked properly and if we could find our waiter when we were trying to pay the check."
    Dined on 11/17/2013
  • "We love going to RAM because of the layed back atmosphere and the great service. We have yet to try something on the menu that we don't like. I recommend the meatloaf, it's pretty amazing!"
    Dined on 11/11/2013
  • "I had the ribs and they were excellent. The beer selection is outstanding."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "Dined with a group of four so I was able to taste a good sampling of food. The Ale Cheese app was very good although we had to ask for more chips and bread because we were about half way done when we ran out. I tried the burgers and the chicken sandwich both of which were very good. I had the shrimp and sirloin combo. The shrimp were excellent. The sirloin and strip were below par. So overall, stay away from the steaks and you will have very good food. The server was great. As a note to the restaurant...buy better quality steaks and raise the price. My bill was $180 with tip and I would have been willing to pay an extra $10 each for the steaks if they were better quality. If it wasn't for the steaks you would have a 5 star review."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "The Ram is a great place for casual dining with excellent food and drinks. They specialize in their own crafted beer and if you are unsure of which one to order, they will bring you samples!"
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "Went for dinner on a Wednesday night (World Series Playoff). Place was less than half full, yet the service was very slow. One diner had soup & a salad, and they both came out with everyone else's entrees. Requests for refills on coffee took a long time. They were, however, very responsive to any dissatisfaction with the beer. I had the Red IPA and it had such a bitter aftertaste I had to swap it for something else. The Hefewizen is a nice alternative for Blue Moon drinkers, but it has very low carbonation and tastes flat. My Rueben was very good, though I found the creamy cole slaw to be tasteless. Overall experience was "fine", I'd be willing to try it again."
    Dined on 10/30/2013
  • "The service at the Ram restaurant in Schaumburg is extremely slow. We went for lunch and it took us almost 2 hours. They need to get with the program and step it up for lunchtime. Most folks need to return to work and don't have the time to wait."
    Dined on 10/28/2013
  • "This is the first time my friends and I had been to Ram, and overall, it was a good experience. The menu options were plentiful and not too pricey. The only thing was the service: while our waitress was helpful, she wasn't necessarily too attentive to our table. Granted, we were there for a dinner on a Saturday night, but it wasn't super crowded. It took a LONG time to get drinks refilled and for our checks to be both delivered to our table as well as processed. If they would just take the customer service up a notch, it would have been a perfect experience."
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "It was a okay place to meet for a early Saturday lunch. The sandwiches were tasty but nothing special. The French Dip was lacking. The coleslaw was excellent. Food portions seemed small for the price paid and only one side was provided - either fries or slaw."
    Dined on 10/19/2013
  • "Nice lunch - had the pulled pork sandwich. The list of beer is great."
    Dined on 10/17/2013
  • "Nothing special. Just a predictable meal for the money."
    Dined on 10/19/2013
  • "Visited RAM with another couple because we wanted to try something new. We enjoyed sampling the beers before ordering a special brew to have with dinner. We ordered burgers and sandwiches with delicious fries and chips. My husband absolutely loved the meatloaf sandwich. We enjoyed a massive slice of ice cream cookie pie, which we all four shared. The service was very friendly and accommodating. We recommend RAM for a casual date night snack with drinks or dinner and drinks. The space is large and ideal for groups of any size. Didn't see a lot of kids here, which was another plus for a date night."
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "It was great for our group we were celebrating a birthday and they were very accommodating. Our server was excellent and our food was fantastic."
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "The RAM has been on our short list for our Chicago visit. Reservation via internet was a piece of cake. Despite a Saturday night and on a short notice we got a table for 4 with even several time options. Upon arrival, we were guided to our table within minutes. The place is nicely decorated, our two sons being real sports fanatics were all happy. Our waiter was Darley, she did a super great job, nothing at all to complain about. The food perfect as expected, a real very much positive dining experience. We will be back....."
