    I think our waitress's name was Dawn, and she was great! I ended up getting the cheese dip for dinner (I'm a vegetarian and not a ton of options, unfortunately) and it was so good. I also got the pumpkin seasonal beer which was fantastic, but pretty sweet.

    Suggested by a former colleague, we met here for a weeknight dinner. She recommended the burgers; many variations from which to choose. I picked the Hillbilly (beef burger, bacon, gorgonzola cheese, crispy fried onions, ...) and it was a wonderful combination of flavors and textures. Homemade potato chips were good, too. Our server (Lauren) was super -- enthusiastic, attentive without hovering so we could eat at a leisurely pace and catch up on lots of talking. Got a nice glass of wine at a decent price (they have LOTS of beer options). Bread pudding dessert was OK -- nothing much going on with the flavors in the bread pudding itself, but the caramel sauce (not too sweet) and ice cream helped.

    5 of us spent a very nice lunch this past Sunday at the Schaumburg loc. A little loud, but it was a Bears game. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere. They did not bring my lunch out with the rest of the order, but made up for it - mgr bought me a drink, apologized and actually it was not a big deal. The sandwich came out shortly and was delicious. Would definitely stop by again!!

    RAM is one of my go-to restaurants, so I scheduled a meeting there. When I arrived, they said they didn't have a reservation under my name - but then we found one of our party arrived early & was already seated - so maybe they checked it off. Most everyone enjoyed their meals - the only thing that was a disappointment was the cheese soup. Not up to it's usual quality - soup was thin and chicken was rubbery.

    We took my wife there for her birthday , we have been there before . She ordered a rib eye steak medium well and was as tough as leather, the waitress only asked how it was two minutes after it was brought to the table. My wife ate her potatoes and some of her veggies. The waitress came at the end of our meal and we told her that my Wife's meal was subpar , the waitress then told the manager and he came to talk about it with us. The manager did remove it from our bill , protocol I am sure. This experience has us second guessing about a return visit....

    I was thrilled to find healthy options that sounded tasty. I tried the Num Num which was a chicken breast with avocado on a lettuce bun rather than a bread bun. I went unhealthy with the sweet potato fries, but oh so yummy! My husband had the tacos which he said were tasty. This is a fun place to go for a casual dinner.

    The bar area is open seating, which is nice. We enjoyed a good dinner with some good Oktoberfest beer! It was crowded and the service was good. Nice place for a good get together with friends to catch up or just stop in for dinner. Enjoy.

    Pleasantly surprised with how good the food tasted. Portions were perfect for dinner so you won't overstuff yourself. Will try the fish tacos next time and maybe the bread pudding for dessert. Didn't drink any beer or spirits but they had plenty to choose from.

    We were a party of 10. My husband & I were a little early but our table was ready and the waitress was available. She asked if we were there for a special occasion. I thought she was just making conversation and I told her our daughter just got engaged. To our surprise, after everyone arrived and orders were taken, they brought over glasses of champagne for everyone and a non-alcoholic drink in champagne glass for a 20-year old. Our waitress was Lisa and she was wonderful. She was very nice, made sure she checked on us, and we never felt rushed. We had a very nice time and will definitely return to Ram.

  • Reservations Ha!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 8/3/2014
    I made reservations for 8 of us using open table at 1:15 pm. These were made at about 11:15 am. When I got to the restaurant I was told that they had a patio table for us which I did not reserve! They walked me thru the restaurant to show me one bad set up for 8 then to the bar/lounge for a long skinning high top that we could have. The host told me that there had been several large groups arrive since the time I made my reservations and they had to accommodate them there fore we did not have a table. Really what was the point of the reservation. I actually stood in line to check in behind another group of 8 without a reservation and they got seated at regular tables and we did not. That was wrong. We had a reservation they did not.

    It has been a year and a half since I changed job. My first job was my dream job and my coworkers were my family. We wanted to have dinner and found Schumburg was the central location for all of us. But where to go? Needed to pick a place were 10 of us could go, noise level was not too loud (we wanted to be able to hear one another) and of course good food and booze. Between PF Changs and Ram i picked Ram. And Im glad I did. A few of us arrived early and we were able to be sat right away. We were not rushed by our waitress to order. We were busy chatting and waiting for the rest of our party. When we did order, food was great. Even though mine had bacon on it when I asked for no bacon. All in all we had a great time!

    We were seated and waited about 20 minutes to be waited on. We frequent the Ram and knew this wasn't typical and since we weren't in a hurry we didn't mind. We were finally waited on by the manager who took our drink order. When our server finally came, she was adorable and obviously new. The food was outstanding as usual and we enjoyed the complimentary appetizer we received for waiting. Our server struggled with her other tables as well but I have no doubt she will catch on and appreciated that the management really had a handle on this type of thing. This place is wonderful. We love it!

    Everything about our evening was great with one exception. Two people in our group each ordered a glass of white wine, one a chardonnay and the other a pinot grigio. They were both brought a sweet, white wine - neither received the wine they ordered. Clearly the bartender was trying to pass off a cheaper wine and we were sorely disappointed. Even worse was the rudeness of the waiter when we called him out on it. He did bring two complimentary glasses to each with an apology but the damage had already been done. The upside was that they were donating money back to a great organization but this cutting corners was a bad choice.

    I went to the Ram this past Saturday. It was a first date and I have had good experiences in the past. I chose it because it was a good location for us to meat given that we were both traveling several miles to Meet up. The salad I hade was great, out waitress was super nice and friendly, and the booth I requested in the special requests section wa available to me. I think it's a great restaurant.

    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 :)
