A brewpub/sportsbar/suburban/generic/ mall scavenger/ lifeless establishment. Yea they brew their own beer but they also have had one of the worst Barrel age beers ever, a Bourban barrel aged IPA that was good after one sip but did a serious dip after that. A fitting stop for any Ikea/ Woodfield mall shopper.

Itís cool place with a wide variety on tap, but the variety is really just in name. Most of the beers seem poured from the same tap. Didnít try the food. Friendly and helpful staff.

Nice looking place with a huge bar, hardwood floors and numerous seating options. The prices rocked - six beers in their sampler for $2.99 plus tax, and they gave me their two seasonals for free. Nice people, nice service. I didnít dig the Chicago Bears jerseys that the staff was wearing, but whatís a Packer fan to do on a football Sunday in enemy territory?

Food is the strong point at this place. Lots of food options to choose from, a lot of them good. Beer is pretty good, but the best part is that it is super cheap. You can get a 5oz sampler of all thier beers on tap (6) for 2 dollars. Beers are 3.75 for a 20 ounce glass. Growlers are 4 dollars on Fridays and in July. Cant beat that. Very generic place in the suburbs, with some unispired decor, but not bad if you are stuck out there in suburban hell.

Pretty much like every other of these commercial brewpubs in the suburbs. Their microbrews are below average, but the food selection and taste is excellent. The beer sampler is actually a damn good deal, would be better if the beer is better. You get 6, 4 oz. beers and 2 half filled 4oz seasonals for $1.99! The best beer was the Porter. The weiss beer was interesting because it was very banana tasting. The banana bread pudding dessert is insane.

I enjoy RAM. Itís just up the block from IKEA, so after a day of shopping itís a good place to kick up your feet. It gets a little loud in the smoking section (which is where the bar and multiple TVís are located), but thereís a small room with a fireplace tucked in the corner which is rather nice. (Smoking is also "seat yourself", so it can be a little daunting if youíve got a party of 6 on a weekend.) The food menu should please most people, from burgers and salads to fajitas and steaks. Their craft brews are all rather nice... my wife likes their Hefeweizen, but I swear by their "Total Disorder Porter". I always get a growler or two if Iím in the area. I believe refills are usually $7, but there are daily specials (last Fridayís refills cost a measly $4!) Definitely stop by if youíre close.

Eh not all that bad. They have this sampler pack thing that you can try. Give that a shot, but dont really expect anyone to be able to help you out that much. Food was sub-par, service was bad.

December 2003. Giant, loud and ugly sports bar appearance...server knew nothing about beer and didnít understand, I mean could not comprehend the concept of a vegetarian entree -- and this in the Chicago suburbs! Beer was very bad, food not much better; this is sub-Rock Bottom, sub-John Harvards to say the least.
