I used to love Ram for a relatively inexpensive decent meal out, and my wife and I recently went on a surprisingly slow Friday. The service was slow, and my steak was under cooked. I wasn't expecting 5-star dining, but didn't think it would be this bad either.

Unfortunately, we had a very negative experience. It took 10 minutes or more before we were acknowledged and given a menu, another 10 minutes before we were able to order drinks, 10 more minutes before we received our drinks. The two dirty martinis we ordered came without garnish (olives) and tasted like pure olive juice. After waiting to tell the waiter, who didn’t come back for some time, we decided to leave and go to another establishment. Terrible service! Terrible cocktails!

Went for Father’s Day. Biggest complaint was that there wasn’t any A/C and our server said it had been like that for days. So the A/C certainly wasn’t our server’s fault but he left a lot to be desired for in the service we were given. First round of drinks came quickly. Then we had to ask for refills on the off chance we saw him. My husband’s meal was supposed to come with fries. By the time our server returned after our food arrived, my husband had finished his meal. He asked for the fries anyway and they came fairly quickly...these were tasty and worth the wait. Our server ultimately comped our appetizer and 2 of our alcoholic drinks. But it just felt like it was an effort to eat there. Not what I was expecting. I would return to try again but only if there is A/C.

The restaurant was extremely hot...their ac was broken but was never shared with us until I asked. Food came out fine, except for one meal which had things that weren’t suppose to be on it, and we’re missing things that were supposed to be added. The expediter did bring the missing items though.

Lexi, our server was amazing with both serving us and making sure our kids enjoyed their meal. The food was excellent and the ambiance was just as good. All in all it was a good dinner but I would have to say we were most pleased with our server.

The Ram is a favorite place to visit. The food is delicious and generous portions. We like to selection of seating; either the dining area or the bar area to customize our visit. the staff is so attentive and delightful and of course the Ram brews are amazing!

It’s was early on Mother’s Day. Service started off excellent, but as the restaurant filled we saw less of our server. Overall, the food and service were good. The kids loved the big dirt cups at the end of the meal.

The food was horrible. There were 5 of us and not one person liked their meal. Beer was good and waiter was nice. The place was not busy at all. When you pull up to a restaurant on a Saturday night and there are plenty of parking spots available....drive away!

Not bad. We arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately and were given the choice of sitting in the bar/dining area or the regular dining area. We chose the bar/dining area so we could watch the NBA playoffs on the giant projector screen. Food was good and service was good.

The best thing I can say is that the food and beer were great. However, the service was not so great. We were running a few minutes late for our reservation and when I called I got told they could move our reservation back instead of holding it for not even 5 minutes past the reservation time. After explaining that is a bit ridiculous they said the reservation could be held and that was no big deal. Then when we got there, we waited almost 10 minutes to be sat because there was no one there to acknowledge us. Then we waited 10 minutes at our table before anyone came to take our drink order and our server(s) were barely seen. The man who did take our drinks was not our server and was more than obvious he was not happy to help us. When questions were asked he seemed annoyed. None of us could get a refill if we wanted to. We were there for almost 2 and 1/2 hours and halfway through the place died down. I would give it another chance, but maybe at a different location.

Overall it was alright. The mixed drinks could use some work they tasted subpar and not quite like what they should (the mojito tasted more like a lemonade, as did the margarita as if they were made from the same mix). Food was pretty good, standard bar food, service was okay as well.

Love the Burgers at Ram, but this time the family just had a few more errors than normal. Food was over salted, kids hamburger was not well done, service on refills was slow. It was brought to the attention of the waitress and staff. They did correct the kids burger, but fries were just over seasoned for everyone. Staff was still friendly, and the value for what you get is pretty good.

I have held several business lunch meetings at this location. Noise level is always great - nice and quiet so we can speak in normal conversational tones. I prefer chair seating for business meals. Mostly booths, but some of the tables have both booth and chair seating. Service is professional and courteous and not intrusive. We sat for 2 hours and were not rushed out. The lunch menu has a very good selection. I prefer the Cobb salad with steak.

Service was HORRIBLE. Waiter kept forgetting basic things like straws, napkins, silverware, requested drinks, condiments.

Waited a long time between check-ins. The Whisky list was written on a large note card and spelled 'wisky'. It was all bottom shelf stuff. I wasn't asking for Pappy's, but not a list of what i would expect at the 7-eleven either.

Beer was good. No stouts (only a decent porter), which was disappointing.

Although the food was good we had problems with the way it was served. Side salads were served before the appetizers. Literally within seconds of receiving the appetizer they came to our table with our entrees. Since we hadn't even touched the appetizer yet we told them we weren't ready for our entrees. They took them back to keep them warm and warm is at best what they were when they were served about 10 minutes later. When two of the entrees were returned because they were cold, we were guaranteed quick replacements so that we could all eat together. The replacement meals had vegetables that not only were not warm they were cold. The meat was nice and hot but the tomatoes served with the sauce were refrigerator cold. We were given a discount but not sure that would be enough for me to try this place again. Also the manager called one of the women in our party "babe". Very unprofessional.

Dear Whom This May Concern, my husband and I were in this evening to have an Early Valentines Day Dinner. We have been here several times and love the food and drinks. We had a not so pleasant experience this time around! Our waitress Wendy didn’t ask if my husband or myself wanted another drink! When she brought us our salads it came with a dressing we didn’t care for! When i asked her about a different dressing she rolled her eyes. Wendy didn’t come back to the table at all to ask how the food was or if we needed anything else! I also had a coupon that I showed her prior to ordering and she brought us the bill without taking the coupon off. I’m not one to complain but this was supposed to be a Date Night / Valentines Day Celebration for my husband and myself and it wasn’t an enjoyable experience at all! The food and beer was fantastic as always, I wish i could say the same for our customer service!

The restaurant didn't have my reservation correct but was quickly able to accommodate my party! Our waitress took a long time to come to our table to take drink orders. My dad ordered a glass for his beer bottle at least three times and then she brought it to him after his beer was empty. Not one of the modifications was ensured (asked for no onions and/or specific dressing on the side, both were not done). They did give us a birthday dessert and kept our waters full, so that was a plus. They also were willing to split our check among a few people so that was helpful. Overall, I'd go back but not for any special event. Good service after at the bar.

Our waiter Marcus was AMAZING. He even helped my 93 year old grandma down the stairs!! Our reservations were for 7:15 and we didn’t get our dinner until 9:15 and the manager apologized, but didn’t seem to care much.

The only reason we would go back would be for the great service provided by Marcus. RAM is lucky to have him.
