I made reservations at what is supposed to be the best restaurant on the Mainland for my anniversary. We arrived to find no Valet or coat check. Before heading in to the dining room we had a drink at the bar. At the bar was a gentleman and his wife. The man was wearing an old and tattered sweatshirt.
...what happened to the dresscode? The bartender was pleasant and personable. When it was time to eat our romantic dinner we were seated 1 table away from a table of 7 elderly women. Each one talking louder than the next making for a less than romantic evening. Keep in mind the place was empty and has multiple dining rooms. The food was good and the waitress made us laugh and provided exceptional service. I'll be hard pressed to ever return.

Took my sister for a Christmas present treat. We were greeted immediately and seated in a lovely room. Our server was outstanding - made us feel very welcome. We chose to use the "Complete Lunch" fixed price menu. Excellent pea/ham soup. Wonderful turkey, bacon club sandwiches. Divine cheesecake with pots of coffee. A gentleman (owner, manager?) came to check on us which is always a nice touch. This restaurant is worth the drive to share a wonderful, quiet meal in a beautiful venue.

One of our favorite "special occasion" restaurants. Minor inconveniences keep this place from achieving 5 stars in our mind.
On busy occasions the bar is usually understaffed. Also on busy occasions, food service and quality could be a bit faster and better prepared. Our risotto was too salty and the lobster a bit overdone and a little rubbery.
The friendliness and attentiveness of the of the entire staff is, as usual, what keeps this place a solid 4.5 for us.

Food was great. Price was reasonable.
We had Kelly. When our table was being pre bussed a girl helping out kept dropping things. Knife fell in my lap. Then when our water was filled bus boy spilled water on my cell phone.
The dress attire used to always be at respectable level.
Guys were wearing pants falling off.
Women in ripped jeans.
The hostess was wearing red jeans.
The food made the experience for us.

We have dined at the RHI several times. This time was a bit of a disappointment. Our meals were warm, not hot, and fairly ordinary. The couple that accompanied us had hot, tasty food, so it was just the baked stuff shrimp that was lacking. We love the quiet ambiance, and terrific service, though, so we will give it another try before moving on...

Fantastic Food and ambiance. So good in fact, I had a holiday dinner there a week earlier and decided to take my wife there for New Years Eve. However, I have learned that one of my co-workers cars was towed from their parking lot for making the right decision and leaving it behind after having a few to many drinks. Our tab for that evening was well over $1100.00 and thought it was a disgrace that The Rams Head Inn would tow a patrons vehicle. Needless to say, we will not return in the future. There are plenty of restaurants that don't "take your money and run" Pathetic.

We have been there numerous times. It always exceeds our expectations. The only downside this time was a group of diners way across the room that were very loud and obnoxious. Very much ruined the beautiful ambiance

I highly recommend Ram’s Head Inn BUT!!!

We have always loved The Ram’s Head. The issue for us this year was an extremely long wait to be seated. I noticed groups arriving after us being taken to their table way before us. Same size group. We had the same issue last year.

It was nice that the manager hurriedly served a bottle of wine as a piece offering but, I don’t drink!!! We were STARVING by the time we were seated!!! The hostess knew we were sitting in the bar area. They could have kept us informed and maybe serve our appetizers there while we were waiting. Honestly, I think we were overlooked even though we checked twice with the hostess.

The servers were superb. We had the same servers twice before and were happy to have them again.

The question is, “Will we return next year for Christmas?” We would like to but, will we once again watch the waiting area empty out except for us? Should I make our reservation two hours earlier then when we really want to be seated?

A bottle of wine poured in a hurry didn’t cut it!

Haven’t been here in years. Now I know why. Lackluster experience.

Walking in seems like an old cluttered country club. Maybe that’s the look the wanted to achieve.

Hostess was pleasant. Sat us in the Garden Room with no other patrons. Didn’t want to disappoint the server in that empty area so stayed. Should have asked to move.

The area is a walk through so customers and staff go through non stop.

Our waitress was nice. Our bus girl couldn’t stop biting her nails or cuticles. Disgusting.

Had seafood tower. Ceviche was horrible. Very small claims. Shrimp were seasoned but rubbery. Mussels bland.

I had Mahi. Small and seemed fresh from the freezer. Daughter had Beef Wellington. Was ok. Wife had Salmon. Loved it.

Service besides nail biter was good. Didn’t want to offend her or embarrass my family do didn’t say anything.

A bigger joke was some manager type guy in a suit came near by and yelled over to our table, “how’s everything over there?”. He was about 15 feet from our table and leaned towards us like it was too much for him to walk over or was unintentional uninterested.

There are way better options. Time for new owners too bring back the charm.

Frequent this resturant a few times a year and was very disappointed this last visit. Missing appetizers, drinks took over 20 minutes and one of the drinks was gin instead of vodka. There were 7 in the party and some got their meals before others. When I tried to point out to the waiter that there were missing appetizers - he became obstanaite and said they were pacing the food, when it was obvious that they were going to bring out the main meal next. For a meal that cost about $100 a person , you expect courtesy. It was a long nite we were sat at 7:30 and finished at 11:00 . I would think long and hard before returning. There are many options at the shore ....
