Food was great - I had a really good burger. I was told by my husband that the beer is good too! It was a great atmosphere that night as the local team was playing and the game showed on giant screens. It was a great experience and we will go again.

1/2 price. Good atmosphere. I can get dinner there and keep the last half for my lunch the next day. Great deal!

I meet with friends on Tuesdays at the Ram. We selected the Ram because of its service and the value received. The food has been of good quality, However, a change was made to the happy hour menu. I ordered the nachos and didn't notice that the name had been changed to "ball park nachos". What a disapppointment! The nachos... More

I particularly enjoy the Salmon Hummus salad. I always sit out on the deck (overlooking a large creek). The wait staff are professional and friendly, and I'm never rushed.

Good food, good service, good beer. A little hard to get into or out of because of traffic but if you catch the traffic lights right it is okay.

Ram is always good no matter what I order which is usually a salad. The husband usually gets a burger of some kind. We have not been disappointed with them any time we've been there.

This is primarily a sports bar. Their own beer is great, with enough varieties to please any beer drinker. The burgers are above average. The buns could be more substantial. Ours fell apart because the burger was so juicy. I had the hillbilly burger, and the crispy fried onions and peppers were a tasty addition to the meat flavor. Carol... More

We were travelling through Salem on our way home to Canada. After a very long day of driving, we wanted something in the way of burgers and beer (my husbands words). We were told that this restaurant had a little bit of something for everyone so we went and sat in the bar. My sweetie ordered the Beer Battered Shrimp... More

We ate here twice during a weekend. On Saturday we were there around 3 pm, so the crowd was minimal and the service was great. On Sunday we went in around 1 pm with a 20 person group (half were kids, ages 7-15). It was jumping with business and we were lucky enough to get a bunch of tables put... More
