I visited on a Saturday evening and was able to sit right down. We had pretzel sticks as an appetizer. I thought they had decent taste but they were too dry! I wasn't overly hungry and only order the boneless chicken wings app as a dinner. They were good but not that memorable. The blonde beers were good and it... More

Nice exterior curb appeal, surprised the place was empty on a weeknight. Was surprised the bar was near empty. Wait staff looked frazzled, and I could not figure out why. Took a few minutes for waitress to help me, and I had to ask for a drink list, she pointed to the chalk board, and did not bother giving me... More

During our week in Indianapolis we visited the Ram on a number of occasions. The giant silo outside is an easy land mark to spot and the service inside is very friendly, quickly putting us at ease. They have a broad range of home grown beers to try and they're happy to help you to explore them. The food is... More

Atmosphere is awesome, the food is always good. The service can't be beat. Don't make the mistake of thinking St Elmos is the only game in town, this place is a must!

Had lunch here with a business associate during the FDIC Convention. Good service. Place was not so loud that we could not have a conversation. I had a tuna melt with homemade chips. Both were good. Associate had a burger w/fries that he really liked. Place was busy but the service was really good.

Stopped in during FDIC conference last weekend and yet again this place lives up to its good reviews. This place was busy but we were sat and waited on right away. Food was out fast and warm and tasted very good. Beer was cold and bottomless...LOL well if another was ordered. I will return here again next year.

I always try something new when we go since everything we've ever tried food wise has been a hit. The beers are good, the mixed drinks are good, the deserts are outstanding! My husband loves the Proud Mary, a big Bloody Mary with a large kabob of cocktail vegetables and cheese and a 4 oz blonde beer.

Stopped in after a long day at the Children's Museum. A tall, ice cold Blonde Ale really hit the spot. Friendly wait staff and quick service made it a very enjoyable meal. I enjoyed a huge portion of fish & chips with a side of slaw...plenty of food even to share. The only complaint I had was that the fries... More

We had a lunch reservation and our waitress was great. My husband got some southwest type burger with chips and said it was really good. I got a burger with caramelized onions and some sweet Roma sauce. It was good, it just got a little too sweet about halfway through. We got the 6 beer sample flight.

We visited twice in a three day period...when we went for lunch with a group of 8, it was so crowded we opted to sit in the bar. Pros: Everyone seemed happy with their food. Several ordered bloody mary's that came with a huge hors d'oevres skewer of cheese, veggies, etc. and a neat salt combo on the side. Those... More
