We've enjoyed several dinners and brunch at Ramparts with friends who live in the neighborhood. It's definitely a cozy, friendly, "everyone knows your name" kind of place -- and we wish we lived nearby to have a lovely, but casual restaurant with delicious food so...More

This is very much a local neighborhood tavern, as there is really nowhere else to eat in the neighborhood. It's a decent pub-like atmosphere, with food specials and half-price wine on Saturday. My special was short ribs--good, but not as tender and as tasty as...More

Definitely a neighborhood restaurant with a regular clientele. Good food at reasonable prices. Went on a Tuesday and it was Taco night and they offered a variety of different Tacos. I had the ribs which were very good and tender. Definitely worth a try!

Ramparts tries very hard to be "special" -- and it is worth visiting for dinner from time to time -- of you go limit yourself to the "specials." They are great -- otherwise be prepared to settle for an unspectacular occasion.

Stopped in here for a birthday celebration with a large crowd. The service was great. They were quick, helpful, patient and friendly the entire time which is tough with a large crowd. The food was really good and their beer list is pretty extensive, which...More

I really like Ramparts. It has a nice vibe, great beer on draft and a very reasonable wine list. On Saturdays, many of the wines are half priced. What would make me love Ramparts? Consistency. About half the time that I venture beyond the sandwich...More

Been there in many occasions & have never walked away hungry or thirsty. Wide beer & wine selection along with excellent regular menu choices & interesting specials. Can't go wrong with the suggested food & drink pairings. Service is quick, staff is knowledgeable, & food...More

Was looking to kill a few minutes and get a bite to eat, so stopped in on a Sunday afternoon while awaiting a flight arrival at Regan airport. What a great spot! The ribs were excellent and as good as any steakhouse and my son...More

If you group is more than 2-4 people, I suggest a reservation. They do not do well with groups larger than that. And be warned -- they will put a 20% gratuity on their bill, so if you leave a tip, it is on top of that.
