Went there for Mother’s Day with a 2pm reservation. We arrived early and they were able to seat us. Since we were there early we were able to get the Brunch menu and hear the last of the jazz playing both of which made my kids happy. Food and service was outstanding thank for making my wife’s mother’s day perfect!
Cant wait to return, maybe for her birthday on the 24th

The staff at Ram's Head was outstanding. We brought my 92 year old mother-in-law, who walks with a walker. They made every effort to make sure she could easily get to our table and avoid stairs.

Yes. The service was great. It was a very relaxing brunch, which is what I really needed. My parents really enjoyed it, which was important to me.

Nice location, the outside terrace overlooks trees and stream. Food & service were ok - it's a "tavern" so bar food was to be expected. The bacon on my club sandwich was undercooked. I was told the turkey was fresh roasted, but it was cold cut quality. The other ingredients could have been fresher.

I really enjoy the food and atmoshphere at Rams Head. We were there on a holiday for brunch-things seemed a little scattered and we had to ask for condiments and never got a side of fruit that was supposed to come with a meal but overall the food was good and I would go back.

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.

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 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!

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!!

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.

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.

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.

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.
