Diner Reviews
  • "we and 2 other couples met for brunch on sunday , prior to going to an afternoon play. 2 of the couples were late, but we were never rushed or hurried. It was early, about 1030. Once we ordered , however, it did seem to take quite a while for the food to arrive, however the food was overall very good.The only entree that was lacking was mine- I had the baked eggs and they were a little over cooked. All in all however.I enjoyed the meal"

  • "It was excellent and convenient for dinner prior to the Friday night show on the stage. The service was superb and the food was much better than anticipated based on previous experiences a number of years ago."

  • "Went with a group of 4 for lunch on a Sunday...we ordered the crab dip which was REALLY good. The rest of the table ordered the fish tacos, biscuits sandwiches, and 2 monte cristos. The fish tacos and biscuit sandwiches were fine, but the monte cristos were disgusting. One of them didn't have preserves. It kind of tasted like two pieces of cold french toast with some meat inside. Usually this sandwich is a knock out at other restaurants, and here, it was very disappointing. Also, it took forever to get our food and it felt like we were constantly bugging the various waitstaff for water/refills."

  • " We made a reservation thinking it was going to be busy. Place was not busy at all. They were able to take us in 20min before our scheduled reservation. We ordered wings, a burger and a cheesesteak. It took us 45 min to receive our appetizer and another 30 min for our main course. In total we waited 1hr 15 min for food. I would see other couples and families sit down after us and recieve their meals before us. On top of that our waiter that caused us to have a bad experience. I had to ask for refill. Our waiter would pass by and look at our drinks empty and not bother to ask us if we want refills or if our food was ready anytime soon. We would ask if our food was ready. He said he will go ask but wouldn't give us an answer. Bad experience."

  • "We told our waitress we were dining before the show and she made it a point to get our food served quickly, gave us instructions on how to validate our parking ticket and even offered to escort us into the concert. We have dined here often the food is good as a reasonable price. Great bar atmosphere and weather permitting the patio is an awesome way to dine."

  • "I reserves a table for two. We were seated in the back dining room, by ourselves. We could enjoy the guitarist in the background and still have a normal conversation. Obviously, this was a week night and not Friday or Saturday night."

  • "OK, this is a bar (not really but in spirit). The original of what is now a five or six restaurant chain in Annapolis/Eastern Shore/Baltimore it is close to the heart of downtown Annapolis. Attached to a performance venue where some of the best talent around comes to sing/play, etc., The Ramshead Tavern has surprisingly good food. I don't mean to denigrate it by saying that but you simply don't expect food this good at what is at its heart a bar. We sat in their outdoor garden which is covered with vines and foliage. It is outside without being on the road so very appealing. The food is varied, with starters, main courses, innovative salads and good sandwiches all available. They have one the best burgers in the area. We recommend!"

  • "We had a great experience at Ram's Head for Father's Day. The food is some of the best for brunch in Annapolis for much better prices than most. The covered back patio is a really beautiful spot, and it's shaded so it's comfortable in the summer."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We've been here for shows but only eaten dinner here a couple times. The service and the food are always good. I do think the alcoholic beverages are a little pricey, but the selection is pretty good. It is my favorite place to eat in Annapolis and my favorite venue for an intimate concert."

  • "Shrimp salad sandwiches were on very stale rolls. There were about 3 shrimp (cut up) on each sandwich. The salad had a great flavor but not much of it. It covered about 2/3's of the roll. If they need the profit then I recommend charging more and adding more shrimp salad to fresh, daily purchased rolls. French fries were warm. We believe the order probably sat for a while before it was served. They were not particularly busy."

  • "Onion rings only slightly warm, French fries downright cold. Medium rare hamburger uncooked. Asparagus dried out (I guess they were supposed to be roasted). Out of 7 people, nobody raved about their lunch, although I thought the Chesapeake Chicken was very good. I couldn't actually taste crab in the topping, but it tasted good. The 7 layer Greek dip is described without Feta on the menu but came with Feta (not good for vegan). The waiter replaced it immediately. All in all, the service was excellent. Great beer list."

  • "Bad Mother's Day brunch. Requested outdoor seating with reservation. Told us the couldn't accommodate but there were open tables visible outside within 5 minutes of being seated. Food delivered to table exactly 1 hour after arrival. Egg dish was so over cooked that it was hard. Bacon served with another dish was so fatty that no one wanted to eat it. Food was warm at best. Coffee had grinds in the bottom... A lot of grinds. Have had great great Mother's Day brunches in the past here but we won't be returning. "

  • "we have gone t the ramshead a number of times, but this was our first brunch there. it will not be the last! The menu was super and the jazz music was a great accompaniment. We took out of town friends who were most impressed."

  • "We has a reservation and went to the Rams Head specifically for the "jazz brunch" but when we arrived, we were told the band was out on the patio and there were no tables available out there. We sat at a booth indoors next to a very loud group and could not hear the music at all. So much for our visions of a relaxing brunch enjoying jazz music - we ended up with a very ordinary breakfast experience. "

  • "We were looking for something a little different for a weeknight.vWe found a performer playing at the Ram's Head and booked acouple of tickets. Then we were offered the Performance Package which included dinner and a parking discosunt along with piority seating and we bit on the offer. The service and foor were just what a Tuesday evening pre-performance meal demanded and the show was fantastic. We have been to the Ram's Head before but not taken them up on this offer. We "will" do it again."

  • "We had tickets to the show at Ram's Head on Stage and decided to eat in the attached restaurant (since food inside the show is so-so). I have had better dinners here before, but we were in a hurry and went with what was quick. Their battered onion rings are always great and were the high point. I had a cheesesteak sandwich, which came on a large sourdough roll too large to bite into, so ended up just eating the filling (which was strips of grilled steak, not a typical steam-um type, plus cheese, onions and peppers). Fries were OK. My husband had fish and chips and enjoyed them ... they are nicely fried, not greasy, and a good sized portion. No time for dessert. On other visits, I've liked their cream of crab soup but wasn't in the mood."

  • "Rams Head Tavern is great if you're seeing a show at Rams Head Live. It's convenient and the food is basically good. Nothing amazing or highly memorable, but you could do worse and go to a chain restaurant. I had the Shepherd's Pie, which was just fine. My companions had the crab cakes and chicken fingers. If you're doing a show, this is a great place to go as you do get a discount on your meal."

  • "Their special attention to visitors attending their shows is a standout; and it's consistent.. The host or waiter grabs your tickets, seats and serves you quickly for dinner, and walks you to your venue seats. Just this weekend, we witnessed a patron who was dissatisfied about something and the manager extremely politely went to their nearby table and addressed their concern. Also, the music venue attracts fun folks who love and respect the musicians. My husband and I, or my BFF usually end up hooping and laughing with folks seated nearby before it's over. Yep. We have become regulars here instead of the Birchmere."

  • "This was not our first time here. Waitress impressed upon us we should hurry because we had tickets.Told her if we were late it was okay. Woman ordered food right away. Woman was to slow to order because waitress insisted on getting drinks and I told her I was not finished with my order.Then she proceeded to wait for the rest of my order. Man ordered a bottle of wine. Woman ordered most of meal yet she only asked man how is everything. Woman insulted by waitress and was told quinoa was not a green salad. Really I knew it was a grain because I have eaten it on many occasions. I believe it would have been proper for her to explain it to me if I asked. She took us to the concert exceedingly fast. Two words Carols Creek next time."

  • "Went out to see Brian Culbertson and decided to grab a bite before hand. The Ambiance was excellent the service was outstanding. Because we went to a show and had dinner we received free parking and was escorted to our seats. Management was also too. I will def. be coming back."

  • "Ate here a few years ago and had a great time, came in before a show last weekend, and found a lot to be desired. Service was fine but not impressive. I ordered one of the specials, my date had the Cobb salad, and we split an appetizer and dessert. Everything was mediocre at best - my duck was overcooked, the salad was just ok, the appetizer needed a sauce to bring it all together, the dessert was nothing better than what we could defrost at home. Overall, we were unimpressed, with no plans to return!"

  • "Oh, heart, do not break! After all these years, no Tavern Ale! I was really, really disappointed. It was such a popular beer among my friends, it baffles me that it was removed. I'm hoping this decision is revisited. The substitute IPA was simply not as good. And the highest noise level that you call "energetic" I call "too loud." Please turn down the music. We were in the smaller tea room, so it might have been unbalanced in there. Still, going to a show at the Ram remains one of my favorite things to do."
