Diner Reviews
  • "We recently had a group event where we had 16 people. They had our table, but then more people showed up who had not RSVP'd to our event. Instead of turning them away or trying to squeeze them in at the corners of our table, Ram's staff relocated us to one of their private rooms so we could sit more comfortably. They were fast and courteous. Then when serving us, they were prompt, refilled our orders without us asking and were always available to help out (and all this happened while they had a special event with a pro-athlete in the bar area)! Food is great, menu is extensive and service is wonderful!"

  • "at 11:45 AM on a Saturday the restaurant was empty. We sat outside. We waited 15 minutes for two iced teas and one water and waited over 30 minutes for food. had to go in twice to ask 1) where our food was and 2) where our waitress was since she never bothered to ask how things were and we wanted to leave. will not go back anytime soon and we go there about once/month. with so many restaurants in the area, why go somewhere where the service is this bad. management really needs to look into this to see why a situation like this would happen when the restaurant was empty."

  • "We have been here a few times and have always had a good experience. There is a lot of seating and it is occasionally crowded but table open up quickly. We always eat more than we expect to, but it's good food and they have a great kids menu for our one-year-old."

  • "The service and food was good with a lot of variety but is a bit on the pricey side."

  • "We went to the Ram in Wheeling for Father's Day with a rather large group, and everyone from the hostess to the servers was wonderfully friendly and helpful. We have young children who were served well, and most impressively the food was excellent! We will definitely be returning."

  • "The RAM restaurant and brewery was a very pleasant surprise for my whole family. We celebrated Father's day there with a dinner for 5 adults. The online OpenTable reservation system was easy. Upon entering, I could see that it was designed like a sports bar. None of us in the family expected the varied menu offered nor the quality of dishes served. Everyone raved about their dishes. From the fish tacos, to my chicken penne, to my mother's baby back ribs, every dish was original and delicious. I would definitely recommend the RAM for the food. Oh, and my husband loves the beer they serve!"

  • "We were promptly seated, greeted by our waitress, and brought our drinks. After ordering our appetizer, our waitress disappeared. It took ~25 minutes to get beer cheese dip, brought out by an apologetic food runner, and still hadn't gotten to order dinner. After finishing the dip, the waitress came back to take our order, food which took another ~45 minutes to get, again brought by a flustered member of the kitchen staff. The orders weren't perfect, but not bad enough to warrant sending back-we were hungry! We had scavenge for ketchup, taking one off of an empty table, as our waitress waited until we were halfway finished eating to check on us. Maybe this was an off-night, but we will be patrons of RAM Schaumburg for the foreseeable future."

  • "The food was great, all 10 of us got something different and all of us liked and enjoyed what we had. Notorious PIG (pulled pork), steak and fish was a highlight. Even my picky stepmother loved her fish! 👍 Beer selection is amazing and I highly recommend it. The service was not great but not horrible. Everything took very long and the waitres did not check in with us much. We had to keep asking her for more beverages etc. Everything else about our experience was really amazing. Highly recommend it! "

  • "We had never been to the RAM before, but my daughter investigated the menu and chose the restaurant for her graduation dinner. We brought a big party and were not disappointed. The menu was varied and had something for everyone, even my 8 year old nephew. The service was friendly and attentive and everyone had a smile. They even gave my daughter dessert on the house to say congratulations. We'd definitely go back again"

  • "We were greeted right away and directed to our table, we choose the bar area, and what a chose it was. Hulk Hogan was doing a signing and we got to see him and I got a picture with my phone. You had to be on this list for signing and payment, but at least I had the chance to see him. The area was just filled with happy fans as we watch them leave with their items signed. "

  • "Went there to watch the Hawks game and was put in the dining area (made reservations through Open Table) so that was expected. There were TV's there so it wasn't that big of a deal. The bar area was packed so there was no open seating anywhere for four people. The beer there is good, I really enjoy the Blonde Ale and the food was pretty decent, I had a steak sandwich with fries. The service however was poor. It wasn't very busy on the dining side of the restaurant and out waiter kept disappearing into the kitchen so it was difficult to catch him if we needed anything (he rarely checked up on us). Overall, I would probably find a different place to watch the game and have dinner and a beer next time."

  • "We have eaten many times at the Ram and always enjoy the good food. On Easter Sunday we decided to try the Brunch. We had reservations. The food was terrific and the service swift and friendly. They checked on us frequently. With the holiday they kept the TVs off and the high ceilings kept the noise level down so that I could easily hear those at the table but not the people at other tables. I would recommend this dining experience to anyone. The balloonist was amazing."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "A very good brunch, especially good value. Plenty of hot dishes, good carving station, excellent omelet chef. Short wait to get in at the reserved time. Probably could have used a few more waitresses-we found ourselves waiting for drinks and explanation of the buffet. I was waiting for ham to be brought out, carving staff asked if I didn't want to wait, that they would bring it out to me when it came from the kitchen. That was a nice action. Drinks were good. Sr price started at age 55, and that was $9 off adult. "

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."
