Arrived at the restaurant and had trouble finding a hostess. This is Thanksgiving Dinner! The three of us were seated at a table for six with a plastic table cloth. The pre-fix dinner did not arrive with all items included on the menu. When we asked about it we were told they had run out of stuffing and cranberry sauce. The turkey tasted like it had been around for awhile. The sweet potatoes , salad and squash soup was very good as was the pecan pie but It was a disappointing experience.

Thanksgiving dinner was an enjoyable experience. The food was pretty good (turkey was fairly dry but was overcome with generous serving of gravy, candied yams were not southern style but were good, and green bean casserole was also not southern style but was quite good. The squash soup wasn’t really a soup, but rather it was more of a fairly thick squash purée. It tasted delicious but was odd eating the purée (like eating baby food). Only complaint would be that the meal was supposed to be a 3-course dinner, but the servers were presenting the appetizer along with the main course which meant that either the appetizer or the main course was getting cold.

All-in-all, it was a nice way to celebrate the holiday. Glad that the restaurant and the staff were willing to be open to serve up a nice holiday dinner — Thank You!!

I've been to Rams Head before, like it in general, and will probably go back again. This time was a little disappointing, however. I went for their Thanksgiving Dinner special, which I did last year and enjoyed very much. Some of it was still excellent. Turkey was fresh, moist, and had that home-cooked look and taste. I also really enjoyed the green bean casserole and dessert. But the butternut squash soup was a bit too sweet and uncomfortably thick (and didn't show up until well after the other food was served). And we all hated the cornbread dressing. There was a small square of what looked like cornbread on the plate, and that was it. I was surprised when the server told us it was the dressing. It looked and tasted like someone cut a square of regular cornbread, let it sit out on a shelf for a couple of days until it was stale and hard, and then put it on a plate. It was awful. None of us would eat it. So please, please, Rams Head, keep doing all those good things well. But trash that horrible "dressing" and get something better next year. (Whatever you had last year was good.) The stuffing/dressing is one of the best parts of a turkey dinner!

We enjoyed a get-together with close friends (reservation for 8).

They gave us a great table in the back, and Vanessa, our server was wonderful!
We had everything we needed without obtrusion.

We met for brunch, and everyone was able to find a great meal for their specific taste and diet.

We had a great time. I did however miss the Sunday jazz music this time.

We have come to the Sunday brunch because of the jazz group and the good food. It appears that Rams Head at Savage has decided that they will no longer have the jazz group for Sunday Brunch. However, we will not come to the Sunday Brunch for only the good food. We will find some other place for Sunday Brunch.

Ram's Head offers a beer release party the first Thursday of every month, it is a great deal! The food is great, the beer us cold, and if you are lucky enough to get a table outside it is spectacular!

I was unpleasantly surprised with our food and serve. Every item we ordered (and we ordered an appetizer, two entrees, and desert) was unappetizing and clearly not made with quality ingredients or by a trained chef. I'm especially confused as to how you can mess up key lime pie. Our waiter was also slow because he was unaware his section was sat. Overall we did not have a pleasant experience.

The Rams Head at Savage Mill is my favorite go-to for business or self-indulgent lunches in the area. Great entree and salad selections, a range of seating options, and really good desserts. The outside seating is fantastic when the weather is good. A bit expensive, but a consistent positive lunch with great service and ambiance.

Went to Rams Head for Father's Day brunch. Great food at a reasonable price and at a convenient location. Service was slow. It took waitress about 20 minutes to take our order and another 40 minutes for the food to show up. Manager explained that the kitchen was backed up due to the holiday. When food finally arrived it was very good!

We hadn't been to Ram's Head for a while and were looking forward to revisiting it. However, our waitress was pretty uninspired, not terribly helpful, and the beer was very disappointing. We have been to local breweries and would suggest that Ram's Head up their ante on their brews. The food was good. It's a pretty location.

Had a reservation for 7 for my wife's birthday. Also ordered flowers, which were delivered to the restaurant well ahead of the afternoon reservation. When we arrived, table was not organized and flowers were nowhere to be seen. We asked to be seated away from the jazz band and were moved over one table, despite many available tables. This is a nice place/nice environment with awful service. Food is good and prices reasonable. Would be great if they adopted a customer-service approach.

The Rams Head at Savage Mill is my go-to place for a friendly or business lunch. They also have a nice downstairs bar. They have great beer battered shrimp, fish and chips, and their peanut butter pie is fantastic. They also seem to have a few temporary specials for some variety. I recommend sitting outside if the weather is warm and not windy. Inside is comfortable and takes full advantage of the Savage Mill ambiance - lots of brick and a warm vibe. There are two indoor dining levels and I recommend the upstairs.

Service was interminably slow...20 minutes to get a glass of wine? Not good... similar long wait for our brunch food to be delivered. Restaurant was not that busy so I have to chalk it up to an inexperienced server who was more attentive to coworkers than our table, sadly. Food was decent, but not piping hot...I'm guessing our plates sat in the window for a while. I like the venue but it did not come through on this visit. Three diners...three disappointed diners....good thing we were more concerned about catching up than enjoying a great meal.

The waiter didn't bring utensils with the food, I asked. The he was standing around checking people out then bringing other people water. So I told him again we needed utensils and he finally gave them to us over five minutes after serving food. It took much longer for ketchup and he also said he would bring that when he brought our food.

It is in an historic village and the restaurants decor fits this. But its also a sports bar with many wide screen TVs. As a result downstairs is noisy but there is a large much quieter upstairs.
