Ram Restaurant & Brewery - Wheeling Ratings and Reviews

The restaurant is very nice - good food, good service, friendly staff. Both the restaurant website and OpenTable could be more helpful with clarifying that bar area seating is open and if that is your preference don't bother with an OpenTable reservation. We wanted to watch a hockey game while we ate and while the restaurant put the game on the TV in the dining room area the bar was really our preference which is why I specified it in the OpenTable booking only to find out that was not possible.
We have been going to the RAM on and off ...
We have been going to the RAM on and off for years and enjoy the food. The one thing that's consistent over the years is that they always seem understaffed which seems to compromise efficient service.
Our reservation was for 5 o'clock leaving us plenty of time to leave by 6:30 for a show at the high school.
We started to get concerned when by 5:20 we had no sign of a wait person. We finally flagged someone down and she told our waitress to come by. Our waitress came by with a tray of drinks in one hand and the pad in her other hand in attempt to take our drink orders. We told her to go ahead and deliver the other drinks first and then she disappeared again. Finally the first waitress who helped us came over and took our order. She was super helpful and got us our food in a timely manner and we were able to leave on time.
I always order the turkey havarti melt plus avocado. My husband ordered a burger. My sandwich arrived without the avocado and my husband's arrived without the bacon and some other items. A few people chipped in and got all of our items that were missing.
We do enjoy the atmosphere and the food there but just know to leave plenty of time as the service is often times lacking.

Very friendly servers and excellent food. The only negative thing I would have to say, is that the coleslaw had a little too much horseradish in it. So it you are not a fan of horseradish, skip the coleslaw. Other than that, everything was excellent.

Enjoyed the Cubs-Indians World Series finale.
We were there as a group to celebrate a birthday.
Good place to watch a game.
Service was abysmal!! Server mixed up drinks and food took forever - I in fact never did get my food order.
Server was not cooperative or attentive to what would have been a very lucrative table.
Actually composed to management at least twice.
Would NOT recommend.

Waited 30 minutes to be seated (even though we had a reservation) waited an additional hour for our appetizer (waitress forgot to put it in) and then our food was so below average that We asked for part of it to be taken off. Would not recommend this place to anyone. They definitely need additional staff

Great place to see the Cubs play. I was a bit disjointed at the Large screen being a bit blurry. I was lucky to grab a booth location!My fish taco's were very good with some great home brew. Excellent service considering it was a crazy Friday night watching the Cubs play in the World Series. My wife's Chicken Caesar salad was also very good.

Went here to watch the Cubs World Series game 2. Food was good overall. Service was a little slow, but I don't blame the server. It appears as if they didn't have sufficient staff to handle all the tables. The bar was packed, as was the dining area. We sat at a booth, but waited over 10 minutes for our first contact with a server. Once we ordered, the food seemed to come out fairly quickly and we didn't feel rushed to leave the table as we enjoyed the game.

Came in on a Sunday afternoon to watch football with some coworkers. It was surprisingly not packed and they had lots of games on! Music overhead, instead of confusing which game you were watching with what you were hearing :) Beer is always good, food was much better than I remember - with vegetarian options to boot! - and the service was great. I believe the gentleman in the bar's name was Don - he was awesome.

Burgers are this month's special and you can't go wrong ordering any of the burgers, either the special or the build-your-own option. I have a burger with Morkt's cheddar, grilled onions, and barbecue sauce. It was the best burger I've had in a very long time, paired with a Ram pale ale, their homemade chips, and it was the perfect meal out with my friends while watching the ball game in the giant screen. Service was okay- our waiter seemed to be ignoring us much of the time- perception that a table full of women don't tip well? Because we were in the corner? Here's a hint, dude...women tip well when the service is good.

Had a great experience, as always. We've been going to this location of RAM for years and always request that Don is our server if he is available. He goes above and beyond to make sure we're always well taken care of and feel special. Nice pub food selection that's a couple of notches up and energetic atmosphere makes it easy to bring the kids.

We were from out of town but I made reservations for 6 of us. Seems like a fun place. We had an awesome server, Kristopher, and we enjoyed talking to him. He attends Marquette University and wants to teach high school math. 4 of us were teachers and in fact my husband was a high school math teacher. He made our night! Food was good except one person order a kale and quinoa salad and she said she couldn't find any quinoa, only lots of kale. We should have said something but didn't because we were having such a good time. The manager even stopped by to ask how things were and was very friendly as well. Would definitely recommend The Ram!

Pleasant sports bar ambiance and good service remains, but the new, abbreviated menu is AWFUL. Heavier than ever on the fried and fatty with little diversity and few healthy choices remaining. The two appetizers and entrees we chose did not measure up to consistently good past quality. What a shame. A favorite dining destination of ours since it opened years ago is gone for good.
