Pretty big place. It is divided between a restaurant area and bar area. A large U-shaped bar dominates the room. They have a good selection of their beers on tap, and there is always a couple of seasonal options to choose from. Food is decent, but it is not worth the prices charged. Nice place altogether.

Visited out here for a homebrew competition. Reminds me of the Ram in Schaumburg, bit and open warehouse type feel with a weird trendiness. Kind of a strange place. Big sweeping bar, decent food selection. Beers come in 3 sizes, not sure on samplers. The beers are actually very well made and somewhat interesting and eclectic. Prices are sound as well. Wouldnít mind returning.

This is a fairly large establishment. On the left when entering is the lounge, aka: sports bar, with the dining area on the right. They have about 7-8 regular beers on tap with 3 seasonal beers to choose from. They have a solid selection of beers with most of them having shagged an award or two. If undecided you can order a sampler selection of six beers. Surprisingly they do have bottled BMC offerings for the uneducated. The menu has a good variety with salads, sandwiches and dinners to select from or just wings & things to go with the beer. If you are in a hurry they do have Growlers to to go. For a chain operated establishment it is quite good.

Ram is a great place to hit up for lunch or after work with a mix of friends. Their brews are not very exciting but certainly better than BMC stuff. That being said they offer all the BMC so you can go there with Craft fans and non a like. Itís a sports bar with above average bar food. Its a good watering hole and for what they are trying to be I think they are good at it. I generally eat here for lunch about a half dozen times a year for lunch with friends (as its near our office) If you go on a week day for lunch and sit at the bar you can be in and out in 45 min no problem

I stopped there once after work to grab something to eat ended up staying a while. Food was really good and beer was great (both selection and taste).

Great food at this place, a nice casual dining place great for watching the game. Beer is alright, nothing special but nothing horrible.

I stayed right across the street in the Westin, so this was mighty convenient! Itís a typical large chain brewpub with a big dining area and lots of big TVs. I usually sat at a bar that looks into the kitchen, as it was too smoky by the regular bar, and I didnít always want to sit in the dining area. The food was quite good and reasonably priced with large portions, as Nathan mentioned. The beers were OK, Iíd put them slightly below average on the whole.

I stopped here with friends for a Friday night dinner. It was pretty dead at 9 PM which I found kind of suprising. Perhaps the others closer to downtown are busier.

The food is nice, slightly upscale and reasonably priced for the portion size. Expect to drop between $10 and $15 on your meal alone but get a huge serving.

There are three options for beer - a 6-tray sampler, an 18 oz pour or 23 ozs. I wish they offered something in between like most other brewpubs do. I had the Hefeweizen and a seasonal dunkelweizen. Neither was that great but both were decent. If I had to rate them they would be in the 3.1 and 3.4 range respectively. Growlers are half price through the end of the month if you want more than 23 oz.

Overall it is not a bad place. Iíd probably go again for a beer but primarily for the food.
