I've been to Rams Head Tavern in Savage about 5 different times and have always had a wonderful experience. The food is great, the service has always been prompt and friendly -- and the ambience is really special. The restaurant is located in a renovated warehouse with high ceilings and exposed brick walls. Can't wait to go back!
A tasteful variety on the menu....the food is delicious and exquisitely prepared! Seating is comfortable and private as there are many booths in the restaurant. The prices are moderately high but reasonable for the selected dishes....which are quality! Overall we have dined here 3 times and have been fully satisfied with each experience. The service is not rushed and attentive to detail. We highly recommend it!
Sat there for 25 minutes. No one bothered to come and serve us. Went up to one of the waitstaff and asked. They acted like it was no big deal and didn't even apologize. Got up and walked out.
Always excellent quality and service, and value for the meal. Pretty quiet when we went (11:30 AM on a Saturday). I expect that changes later in the day.
We went for Prime Rib which we had but two of the three that were ordered were raw instead of cooked medium. Asked them to cook them more, which they did...but it still wasn't right. Ate them anyway.
I went for my birthday. The food was good and the service was pleasant and outstanding. I'm looking forward to having Sunday Brunch there.
I enjoyed the food, location, value service here at Rams Head Tavern. I would be hesitant to refer my friends only because of one thing - it felt outdated. The Ambience of the dinning room. Instead of using plastic table clothes It would benefit you to invest in cloth tablecloths (black, white or burgundy). In addition to it being fair more attractive and would help to make it feel updated and inviting, and it is less of a bacterial (germs/food) issue, While you will have to change the tablecloths for each patron it is less likely that there is a bacterial or cross contamination issue from patron to patron. Example people with colds, or food allergies - if I am allergic to fish (shrimp) and someone drops fish or sauces on to the plastic it is there when I arrive. Unless you are cleaning your tables with clorox or anomia between patrons. Moreover, while we could hear the much excitement from Bar area upstairs it wasn't distracting. However, it would've been nice to have some subtle music upstairs. I know I will be back for the food for sure!
Can't beat the location - Historic Savage Mill...food is decent.
Wonderful place to dine but service was a little slow.
Delicious food, tasty beer, and great service! A classic pub/restaurant in a landmark venue.
We had a fantastic time here. We sat upstairs in the dining room and our server, Richard, was wonderful. He was friendly and had great recommendations and timing. The food was SO delicious. We both had specials - bacon wrapped scallops over a fried lemon risotto and a ribeye with mashed potatoes. Every single bite I kept stopping to say, "wow, this is SO good!" The beer was great too, we will definitely be back!!
Food is always good here. Creme Brulee was not fresh. The carmelized sugar was not crusted. They were pre made :( my host and server was excellent.
Sunday evening visit. Maybe 5 tables to serve with no more than 4 couples per table. There was just 1 young and or inexperienced waiter. We were hosting a business associate from Canada. The service was slow and inattentive. The food was fabulous. Made a bad impression. We will return for the food and ambiance. Hardest working person was the female server who carried trays of food from the first floor up stairs.
Love this place, and between happy hour before 7 and kids eat free, makes it a really good $$$$ deal
Great brunch with bottomless Bloody Mary’s, mimosas and good food!
Jazz was a server and she was charming, attentive, and efficient. Food was good as always. We had a great time as usual.
Classic place with great food and beer in a classic building. A real treat anytime!
Food was just ok. We had a party of 8 people of which two people ordered the grilled chicken Ceasar salad and the chicken was ice cold. Sent it back and the chicken had been reheated and came back dry and not able to eat. The staff was friendly and courteous however there was 1 bartender trying to prepare drinks and wait tables= understaffed. Women's restroom toilet was not functioning and would not flush in addition to no paper towels. Great place to meet friends for lunch and watch Sunday afternoon football, especially when trying to watch more than one game at a time.
They didn’t appear to have enough servers. That caused a delay a noticeable delay in service. Food was good though and the waitress was very responsive, even though understaffed.
We had tasty pub food and good beer. Our server was great and responsive, but overall service was slow... which could be a good or bad thing, depending on your perspective. There was also a fire alarm (false alarm) ringing for a while, which didn't disrupt service but definitely made it hard to talk and disrupted the ambiance at the bar.
Sunday Brunch has a delicious menu! We were pleasantly surprised at how good the breakfast was. We also enjoy their lunches, a nice selection of sandwiches, burgers and salads. In the summer the patio is quite nice with a view of Savage Park.
We ate here on Thanksgiving. They offered a traditional thanksgiving dinner and other options on the menu. A couple things got mixed up but they made it right.
With a dozen completly out if control kids at a near by party, this was more like being at a Chucky Cheese rather then a tavern. Kids were litterally running around everywhere. I think even the staff at Chucky cheese would have tried to control this.. But the Rams Head staff seemed oblivious. The food was good although came mostly cold.
We went there for Thanksgiving Dinner. The restaurant was cold, so my boyfriend never took off his coat. No sooner that we got our soup the dinner was served. The food was cold.
The service was OK.
This restaurant is in a great setting, but they should try to improve on the whole experience.
Pro: We went to Ramshead for our annual Thankgiving Dinner. The menu offered was specific to the holiday, and offered some alternatives besides Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings. The food was delicious. Atmosphere was quiet. Not that many people were there at the time we were there, lots of space. Our server was attentive and helpful. Servings were abundant, took food home. We were stuffed!
Con: The temperature of the room was too cold. I had to put my coat back on to eat dinner. I also noticed others there wearing their coats and hats during their meal.
The food is usually excellent, but today the imperial steak special my wife ordered medium was extremely dry, had no flavor, and did not come with leeks as then menu description detailed. The pulled pork sandwich had very little BBQ flavor. However, the crabby tots and fondue burger was wonderful. Perhaps, this was an off night....
What a great place for Sunday brunch. And who could pass up bacon bits with the Bloody Mary bar? I'm sure that we will all return. It's certainly worth the drive.
The tavern proves a basic brunch service. Good but nothing special.
We enjoyed our dinner at Rams Head. Dinner was good and the service was quite good.
This restaurant is part of a mill that is over 200 years old. The building is beautiful and the restaurant is amazing. Always a good time.
The food was awful!! Lobster was wet and soggy. They only had one and it’s the special for the day we went. Drinks were horrible. Bartender couldn’t make a mai tai or a any drink that wasn’t beer.
Hard to find in Columbia, MD! It’s such a shame that someone using Open Table visiting another city can’t get to a restaurant easily and that is what happens in this area ... basic bar food, fish dishes and array for draft beers
Great atmosphere and food. The shrimp and grits was amazing
Have eaten here before and the food was great. However this time around, we had a horrible experience. The food my wife and I had ordered was way over cooked. The server was MIA for most of the time and after we got our meals, she was gone for a good 20 minutes. We decided to eat. I should also mention that we were the only ones on the second floor as they were preparing for a party which was nice because we didn’t have to fight over the noise of other people talking. Overall I probably wouldn’t eat here again unless the food and service gets better
Great service. The drinks were amazing. Love the outdoor seating area.
Always great food, but service was a bit slow and inattentive this time.
Definitely suggest sitting outside. It was beautiful and more quiet.
enjoy the outside seating area ... bean soups great! ... along with the Pear salad
Went for my Birthday and my husband, daughter and boyfriend joined us for dinner. After meal was done they surprised me with a big slice of cake.
