Went out to eat with friends and three of us got a salad, one got a steak. It took close to an hour before our food came out. Then trying to get our check was a nightmare and they were incorrect. I spoke with the manager, but all he did was give us two complimentary dessert tickets and two complimentary appetizer tickets... cause yes, after this nightmare what I really want to do is come back/ NOT! It was unreal how terrible the service was.

We were seated near the exit to the outdoor patio...we were cold for the entire stay. Server was nice but evidently very busy as everything took longer than expected...food was only luke warm...we were never offered refills on our drinks. Not a good experience!

We were a party of six with 8 PM reservations on New Year’s Eve. We were seated and not acknowledged by anyone for 20 minutes. By this time we had noticed a draft at our table and other patrons eating dinner with their coats on. We asked for the manger and he did state that the heat wasn’t working and wouldn’t be fixed till the following week. I realize this was out of his control but he should have mentioned the heating issue when they seated us. It was very disappointing that the manager didn’t offer any type of compensation for the inconvenience of eating dinner with our parkas on on New Year’s Eve. An establishment that’s been around for as long as RAM has should have handled this better.

We were a party of 5 adults. Two of us ordered entrees and one person ordered a dinner salad. (the others had sandwiches). We requested bread with our entree and salad, and received a small portion of toasted pitas. When we asked for additional bread, we received another skimpy portion. For the cost of an entree and a pricey dinner salad, we felt we did not receive value for the money we spent. The entrees were not large and there was hardly enough food to make a satisfying meal. Obviously, the Ram wants us to order appetizers, etc to jack up the amount we are spending. It was a disappointing experience.

We were very disappointed with our total experience at RAM. We have always wanted yo try and sadly will not be going back. Our service is the main reason. The only reason why it ended up okay at the end was because the manager was involved. After waiting 20 minutes for our appetizer i went and found the manager because our server was no where and when we did see her she avoided our table. The manager retrieved our app and then shortly after our food came. I had four unhappy kids at this point because we waited so long for the app (hence why we got one to tie them over) then they barely ate their food because they had just eaten the app. Drinks werent filled in a timely manner, until the manager was involved. My salad was partially wrong and when it was fixed...i never received dressing until i got a togo box because we were over the whole experience and i had the chance to ask someone for it. It was my dads birthday and we didnt even sing to him (at the restaurant) because we couldn't stand to be there any longer. Some delays i could understand if the restaurant wad packed...but it wasnt. We were a party of 7 but that still doesnt mean we should receive less service. The manager did comp our bill $16 but it still didn't make us have any desire to go back. Very disappointing.

Food was average, husband's burger a bit greasy. Nothing special. I understand that it's a beer and burger place, but the choice of salads didn't look very good compared to similar restaurants, so I got the quesadilla. Greasy, but tasted okay. One in our party like her chicken sandwich. Service was good at first, then waitstaff forgot to put in one order. It came pretty quickly, though and they did offer to give us a free dessert, so that was appropriate (we declined). Then waitstaff was so busy, they didn't come back to us for some time. Cleared some plates, but left 2 for a good long while. Uneven experience.

We have gone to Ram a few times and have always enjoyed the food. This time, not so much. Our server, Marcus, was very nice, but not very quick. We ordered an appetizer (pretzels and beer cheese) and our beverages (my husband and I both had soda and our daughter had lemonade) right away. The appetizer was out before our drinks and I had to ask for them. It was about 15 minutes for the appetizer to come out. The beer cheese was inedible because it was so spicy. I ordered the filet medallion sandwich and asked for the fries to be crispy. They were not crispy but I didn't want to wait for a new batch. My sandwich was really good. My husband had the Bavarian Burger and he said it was just ok. The service was pretty slow. It was a Sunday evening, our reservations were for 5:30, and it was not busy so I'm not sure why the kitchen was so slow. Kids eat for $1, which is a great deal. However, the beverage should be included. The drink was an additional 99¢.
Marcus was on top of the refills and like I said he was very nice. It wasn't his fault the kitchen was so slow.

The restaurant didn't have their air conditioning working and they did not inform us that it didn't work, which I thought would be considerate of them. They were also out of several items but we were not told until we went to order said items and then had to decide on something else on the spot. Overall it was not a great experience, which is something that I am used to from RAM.

We have gone to this Ram Restaurant location several times and every time we have noticed that the food and the quality of the food has gone down. Diminished greatly! They need to make some changes that are going to lose more people because it's the first time I was there on a Saturday night with more Empty Tables than table serving patrons. Very disappointed

Food and beer were good and our first waitress was excellent. The second was was not as nearly as attentive. I walked over to find our waitress to pay our check and then asked some random waiter to run our credit card after waiting almost 20 minutes to pay our check. Your bathroom are by far the most disgusting I've ever been in. Porta-potties are cleaning and smell better than yours. I try to hold my breath while using them.

We ordered nachos, pretzels with beer cheese, and guacamole during a girl's night out. The nachos were sad - nothing but cheese and black beans on top, nothing on the chips underneath. Pretzel bread was probably cooked much earlier in the day and then microwaved so it was rock hard. Guacamole was good. We complained to our very nice and attentive waitress who then got us a free dessert. The ice cream cake was delicious.

I hope they were just having a bad day. It took 5 to 10 minutes before we were greeted and seated at a table. Then another 5 to 10 minutes for a server to come over to our table. I hope it was just because they might have been shortstaffed. This visit I would certainly disappointed with after being her several times previously and being very happy

Food was great, but two out of four of the burgers had condiments on them they weren't supposed to have on them.

The service wasn't wonderful. There were no refills on drinks, he barely came to check in on us, and we waited for over fifteen minutes for him to come take our payment.

My husband ordered his burger rare to medium-rare and it came out well done - no pink at all. I ordered mine well and it came out charred - like close to a hockey puck. Our server was not attentive at all despite things being very slow for a Saturday night. The only redeeming thing was the beer. We will not be coming back here. Years ago the food and the service was much better.

I went with a group of 7 and we had made a reservation and they seated up not only right away but a bit early. We were there at 4:40pm on a saturday and there was quite a few tables open. The menu was pretty expansive but had a huge burger selection with some interesting options and substitutions. The waitress got one persons order wrong but then was able to correct it and get the right food to her within 3 mins which I found impressive, Nothing worse then one person not having their food. We all tried the desert ice cream cupcakes but I was dissappointed since they tasted a bit freezer burned, with they used higher quality ice cream, but its a great concept and we had never seen it before. The creme brûlée we ordered was also a bit soupy which was disappointing, but still tasted good. Overall it was a pretty good meal with some room for improvement in the deserts.

my first time being their and my mom informed it was my birthday, took 40 minutes for appetizers than an additional 40 mins for dinner which sucked. Also my mother informed the server it was my birthday no cake or ice cream or dessert in the house. the charged us for items we didnt purchase and informed at the end of the bill. so not worth our money here!
