One of the only decent locals in my neighborhood. Service at and in the bar is excellent, less so out in the restaurant area. The ambiance in the bar area varies but generally tends to sports bar with multiple flat and big screens. Selection is the six Ram standards (blonde, hefe, amber, pale, IPA and a porter) and 1-3 seasonals. Beer knowledge is fair among the bar staff and negligible in the wait staff. Fairly pricey for Lakewood, but it’s corporate pricing across the board and they have specials and happy hours. The food is a step and a half above a place like Chilis and the beer selection is much better. Combined with walking distance from my house and a solid PNW IPA and I’m a fan.

Another Ram pub off the list this is just like the others. Good food the beer is decent and you know what to expect when you walk in. We where taken back that the service was very good and they seemed to really care which was very nice. I got the Scottish ale one that I had not tried and it was very nice with good color, the aroma was pleasant and the flavor was a good Scottish malty with a slight peat flavor. We will go back when in the area and in need of some good food and beer.
