Diner Reviews
  • "We go to Ram frequently. In addition to their freshly brewed beer selections, they also offer a great varietyof food. Especially recommend their fish fry and burgers. "

  • "Have only been to RAM for luncheons on multiple occasions. However for the luncheons, the food selection is varied and has always been fresh and served promptly. Nice selection of appetizers. The service has always been good."

  • "We took my daughter and 4 of her girlfriends here for her 14th birthday on Friday night. The 5 girls had their own table, and my husband, her brother and I sat at a different table. The waiter was accommodating, friendly and knowledgable. The girls laughed and had a great time, and I didn't need to worry they could disturb nearby diners as the noise level is a bit louder anyway (one of the reasons we chose this place). Husband thought the ribs were overcooked, but I enjoyed my turkey burger! The girls thought their food was good also! After dinner, the server brought a huge dessert (on the house!) for sharing and we all sang "happy birthday"! The ambience here turned out perfect for this age group!"

    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "With our reservation we walked right in and were seated. Food came out fast too. Food was good (not great, but what I would expect from a brewery-type restaurant)."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "This was a work lunch for us. I had never been here before, but enjoyed the experience from beginning to end. Good food, good and quick service, and our reservation was honored even though we were a bit late."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Even with a reservation, we waited 45 minutes for a table. It was a busy Saturday night and one large table (probably 20 or more) wouldn't leave. The bar was packed, so we sat at an auxiliary bar and waited while many employees sprinted past us. Finally we flagged them down to order a drink. We then ordered a second and it never came? Finally sat down and we were well taken care of at the table."

  • "Food wasnt that great for the price. We got an appetizer that was $9 but you didnt get that much and they seemed like it was something that was frozen. Beer was very good but food kind of took away from the good beer."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "1st visit here- honestly, we had a great time - would like to see a larger selection of brews available. Food was good - buffalo chicken salad was large, plenty of food. Faberge burger was very tasty - would like to see a bit more food on the plate, but I might be complaining because I have a large appetite! Meat was cooked correctly (Medium/Rare) and lots of flavor! I would recommend this for someone who skipped out on lunch - great taste! Great service by our waiter as well as bussers staying sharp - good job! We will come back if we are in the area!"

  • "A great place to meet old friends for food, drinks and conversation"

  • "We enjoyed are time there the only problem was the waitress forgot one of our appetizer and a glass of wine"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "RAM has good own beer with options for all tastes. A free 3 flavors sample helps you in case you are not sure what to order. The sandwiches are phenomenal, my burger is always cooked as requested and my friends are always happy with their orders as well. Service could be better. This week the place was not packed but, still, it was hard to get my waiter's attention."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "In the reservation comments, we asked for a quiet table for 6. We arrived exactly on time and were told there was no table available and wanted to seat us in a large booth. Not good for older and some handicapped people! After a lot of fussing, they sat us at a table in a back room that was so close to the next table that we were almost in their laps. The service in the back room was less than attentive-never came back to refill water or ask if we need anything more (which we did) and no one was around to get their attention. The food was good. The quality of the food and the selections on the menu have improved since our last visit a few years ago."

  • "We recently moved to Highland Park from Washington state, where RAM Restaurants (11) are found - it seems around every corner. We've always had great food - above average service and enjoyed our time at each one. Wheeling, IL's Ram Restaurant truly does equal the Ram clan of restaurants out west - with great food - pleasant crowd and a wait staff that was attentive (from the manager - to wait staff and even the bus boys). Truly a great time was had by our party of 6."

  • "it could use some fine tuning. We went with another couple on a Saturday night. Despite our reservation, we were first seated at an awkward demi-lune table, and had to ask twice to be reseated. Service was rather slow, and my request for gluten free tortillas to go with our appetizer was denied, even though they are on the menu. (I would have gladly paid extra for them.) The vegetable and rice accompaniments to my steak were very small, about a half cup of each. However, the food was tasty, and we enjoyed our meals. There are televisions scattered throughout the restaurant, so if you are looking for a place to watch a game, you've found it! Just don't expect Ram to be more than it is."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "We were a bit disappointed in the quality of the food this time. Had eaten at 2 of their other locations and went away very satisfied. This time, my husband's beef sandwich looked rather dry and boring and I was surprised at how small the Mahi piece was in each of my tacos. The drinks were good but the noise level made it very hard to have a good conversation without having to raise our voices. Definitely liked the Schaumburg location much better."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "Their portions have gotten smaller on the mile high ice cream. We go frequently to the Ram and that dessert has gotten significantly smaller."

  • "Always good food, friendly staff, convenient parking."

  • "We always go to the Ram on our night for the Marriott Theater and its always good food and friendly service."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "We live in Evanston, IL so Wheeling does not usually come to mind when looking for a place to eat. Knowing I needed to pick up a package from FedEx, I searched for restaurants in Wheeling. Ram seemed reasonably priced with a lot of choices on the menu. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good and even my husband, who is a beer snob, enjoyed the beer. Don't know when we'll be back that way, but if we do, we'll definitely return."
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "Good service for typical bar food. Decent beer options and prices. Nice service even for a large group!"
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "Anyone will have a great time at Ram's. They have great food and is a great place to hang out. Ram's has become my favorite place to go out for drinks and good eats. I love this place."

  • "Ordered a turkey burger except requested it to be a beef patty and there was a mixup in the kitchen - not a problem since the turkey burgers are tasty - but the manager came over and apologized and not only took the burger off our bill but comped us a dessert as well - far more than necessary. However, at Ram, outstanding service is what we expect and when they do have a rare slip up, they overcompensate. What a pleasure to go somewhere that understands outstanding service will keep the customer loyal!"

  • "Great burgers and salads. Consistently good. Friendly service."
    Dined on 10/12/2013
  • "We were visiting from out of town, and this was a great place to meat. It is a fun atmosphere, and the menu offers plenty."
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "We were very disappointed with the food. The hamburger was like a frozen patties with no taste. Several of us had hamburgers and were not impressed. You would think for $10.00 plus, it would not taste like a frozen patty that was quickly cooked. The Gluten free option also had hardly any food in the bowl. The waiter was wonderful but the food and drinks took forever because they were backed up in the kitchen. Not very impressed. The selection of beer was pretty good."
    Dined on 10/12/2013
  • "Went in for an early dinner, so initially we had the place to ourselves. Service was efficient and pleasant. Lots of great choices. Save room for dessert."
