Ram's Head Inn Ratings and Reviews
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.
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 ....
The Ram's Head Inn is my personal favorite in the area. My parents were both born and raised in Connecticut, and, hence, I visited that part of the country and the seashore quite often. The RHI always reminds me of New England, and fondly. It is quaint and nicely decorated / appointed. This is, of course, especially true when the winter holidays roll around. I have a mid-December birthday and there is NO place I would rather go to celebrate it with my wife and our son. It was truly special, the ambiance unparalleled, and the service superb.
RAMS HEAD is one of my favorite places
Had the chicken pot pie & it is luscious & quite large for 1 person
Took 1/2 home gave it to a guard in my bldg., said it was the best meal he had in ages!
Dessert vanilla ice cream that was Jack & Jill..a taste from the past.
Place is so cozy w/holiday decorations.... dine @ Ram's Head every Dec.
We were at the Rams Head the night before Thanksgiving, so it wasn't very crowded. We had an excellent meal, with great service, great food and great entertainment (Lounge Singer). This was an historic restaurant with a cozy and antique atmosphere. I would definitely return when in the area. Highly Recommended.
First time here and we'll definitely be back. From the minute you wall in you take a step back in time to when restaurants paid more attention to detail. The bar area was really nice and the drinks were great. The tv in the bar was a bit out of place but I'm sure it's there since people probably complained about not being able to "watch the game" when they should have just enjoyed the atmosphere and the company they were with. The food was pretty good as well, not exactly on point with how nice the atmosphere/vibe was...The crab brulee appetizer was great but a little cold at the bottom, the stuffed shrimp dinner was pretty good, a touch fishier than we expected, and the veal/crab meat over risotto was a touch fishy also and very salty...and I love savory. That being said it was still good enough that we want to try other entrees. The service was great and very friendly and attentive. Overall we had a very nice night and will definitely be back.
Hadn’t dined at Ram’s Head in some time. The food was quite tasty and well presented. The service, when compared to previous experiences, was best summed up as sophomoric. The servers were polite but new little of the menu items preparation, how to serve each item or what utensils to serve it with and didn’t admit it. At a nearby table another diner saw it right away and asked if they had the 2017 vintage of Boone’s Farms. The server said she would have to check. Lastly, much of the serviceware was well past it’s prime. Sorry to see this landmark in such a poor state. Hoping for better times.
Good ambience Food was fair Service was attentive but very uneven with several mistakes Osso buco special wasn't bad but was dull and needed a little more punch My wife's fish was over cooked and dry Overall not bad but for the price and my expectation from a previous visit was disappointing
I had such high hopes for a spectacular anniversary dinner. The service was good but the food was so basic. Nothing to rave about. Filet and lobster tail were tasteless, veggies were boring. And then a 25 minute wait to get dessert that was terrible. Pumpkin cheesecake was so dry, I couldn’t eat it. No aperitif was offered. We should’ve known when we entered the restaurant on a Saturday night and it was practically empty. So sad. It’s a beautiful restaurant, I think they just need a new menu, chef, or something.
Inexperienced server; veal with crab was salty and not piccata at all and way off base from what it was supposed to be; onion soup lousy, rack of lamb flat with little taste; coffee warm not hot; dessert with a candle was a nice touch for our 50th anniversary.
We used to visit Ram's Head as a family when I was younger, and we decided to go back for old time's sake. It was a good as we had remembered. Everything from soup to dessert was delicious, and the service was attentive and helpful. The only disappointment was that the ambiance was not as refined as we had remembered. People were dressed very casually despite the business casual attire noted on the website and the atmosphere was staid. The restaurant was completely empty when we left at 10pm.
We have been to Ram's Head Inn before and liked it very much. However, this time it was very disappointing. We both ordered Beef Wellington and a nice Napa Cabernet, only to be told that the chef couldn't prepare my beef medium rare, said our server. When the wine Steward came around, he said he could get the chef to prepare the beef medium rare. The meal was fair, at best with the meat less than tender. That server, the gentleman, did try to help and we appreciated it, but the young woman server who took our order was inadequate and needed professional training. On the other hand, the woman playing the piano and singing in the tavern was terrific. Expectations at Ram's Head need to be raised in terms of food preparation and service. It was disappointing.
