Crab dip was great, as were the pretzels, and the macaroni and cheese. That you're allowed to bring leftovers into Ramshead Stage for the live event is a great plus too. All in all, we had a wonderful experience.

We had a great meal before a comedy show at the Ram's Head. Since we had tickets to the show we were offered 10% off our dinner check, $2 off a drink after the show and parking validation in a neighborhood garage. Kelly was a great server and got our order out quickly as the show was about 45 minutes from starting so we weren't rushed!! I highly recommend this venue for shows, menu selection and service!

I was happy to see three great vegan choices. That made my decision to eat there. My friend isn't vegan so we both could get what we wanted.

Connor was wonderful! Brussels sprouts are amazing! Prime rib was disappointingly thin cut, but good.

Went for the first block on west st. event, and was really excited to try a new place. The waiter seemed to be very overwhelmed. He accidentally spilt one of the drinks at our table—which we understood the chaos for that day of an event happening outside. But after him forgetting my fiancé’s drink, then undercooking her steak and then cooking it again (to which it was then over cooked). It was just mediocre food with really poor service :( was really hopeful with the gluten free friendly menu but very underwhelmed with the entire experience

Waitress wasn’t focused on her job! Food was sent back . Did replace with an ok shrimp salad sandwich and these places never follow thru with the points for the open table app.

The restaurant was fairly crowded but was understaffed. My appetizer came with my meal, which took about 45 minutes to arrive. The Old Bay deviled eggs did not taste very good, and the lettuce in my wife's salad was wilted.

Server wasn’t in his best mood. Mac and cheese Quattro tasted like nothing, outdoor tables were wet from the rain ( they take you there to seat you but you somehow have to dry your own table and chairs ) food was just ok.

The food was edible, nothing outstanding to write about. The service could have been better. Ketchup was brought to the table for burger and fries, no other condiments were offered such as mayonnaise, mustard, or salt. Ambiance was tolerable, nothing more. We arrived at 5 p.m. with most tables unoccupied and were seated in the sun with no umbrella or shade, even though unoccupied shaded tables existed. We were kind of made to feel like we had intruded upon the waitstaffs nice quiet evening.

Everything was wonderful but the kitchen was backed up and it took an hour and a half to get our food. Most of the beers we asked for were not available. Our waiter was great but he was also swamped with tables.

Good but not great this time around. Server seemed distracted or overwhelmed with too many tables. Food was not cooked to order. Very long wait for food and drink. I love the ambience and maybe this was just because of a sold out concert that night. Easily remedied by hiring more servers on these busy concert nights.

Ordered crab soup and a Reuben. Soup came at the same time as the sandwich. No crab meat in the soup, just beans, potatoes and tomatoes. Reuben on dried out toasted swirl pumpernickel bread. Fries were warm, not hot. I asked for the 1,000 Island dressing on the side and it came that way, with a dark orange film on top. Service was SLOW !

Great choice when attending a performance at Ram's Head. They seemed understaffed the night we were there and I assume that is why we had to request delivery of ordered items multiple times. I would suggest choosing to reserve here a couple hours ahead of the performance, just in case.

Fine beer on tap. Happy Hour a real bargain! Half price appetizers and drinks Mon-Friday 3-7. Friendly servers. Located close to the heart of the city of Annapolis, in the inner West Street business district. A participant of Dining Under the Stars on Wednesday and Saturday, enjoy live music while dining outside.

Only one complaint from our lunch. They obviously don't pay attention to the special requests when I book through Open Table. I had indicated it was a birthday and no mention, but more importantly I had asked to be seated in the front corner since we would have a stroller with us. Instead they had 2 men sitting at that table for 5. Frustrating. But the service & food was good after that.

I've eaten at the Ramsshead Tavern dozens of times over the years before shows. The food was always MUCH better than it was last night. The crab soup was vegetable soup with a TEASPOON of cold crab meat sitting on top. That is NOT how to make MD crab soup. Understandably, crab meat is very expensive right now. So, raise the price, but don't mess up the recipe! I ordered a burgar it was so well done and dry it was almost not worth eating. A bottle of wine (that is $10 at (at most liquor stores) was $35 per bottle. I understand they have to mark up, but really?

Service was good. Real noisy in the bar area (sports on TV and a lot of yelling). We ate in the restaurant and the noise level was acceptable.

Ladies room paper towel machine was stuck. We reported yet no one even put paper towels out on the sink! REALLY ?

Sadly, I won't eat there again. Too many other options in Annapolis area.

The waitress was terrible. Slow and sloppy service. She forgot us while she was working behind the bar and we had to remind her of our existence twice. And one order was placed wrong and his food came after everyone else finished.
