So. The Ram restaurant at the Northgate Mall in North Seattle.

This place really looks like the protypical chain brewpub/sports bar I've seen many places. In fact, it really reminds me of the Fells Point DuClaw "brewpub." Anyways... As one walks in from the Mall parking lot, the first thing you notice is that the pub has very high ceilings with a nice size wrap around bar in the middle of place. There are 8 large flat screen TV's over the bar, all showing various sports channels. The pub is pretty good size and has very much your typical Chili's/TGIF feel to it. Atmospere is clearly not this place's strong suit, though there is nothing wrong with it. The day I was there the Ram had their standard 6 on tap with 4 seasonals. I got a sampler of the seasonals, all of which were decent if not exactly anything to get too excited about. The regular beers, from what I could tell, were not worth trying. They consisted of a blond, hefeweizen, pale ale, ipa, porter and something else. Pretty much exactly what you would expect at a place like this. The service was so-so, but I give the distracted waitress extra points for nipping my disappointment right in the bud. The Ram has a 6 beer sampler for $3, but it does not include the seasonals and you can't substitute. I most definitely did not want to just try the regular line-up, and was about to express my unhappiness, when the waitress beat me to the punch and just asked me if I wanted to try the seasonals. I said that's what I wanted, whereupon she poured all 4 gratis. Hard not to be impressed with that kind of service.

After running through the samplers I decided to get a half pint of the DIPA. The waiteress indicated they didn't do half pints, but that as it was happy hour (this was 3:00 on a Thursday), pints were only $3. So I just got a pint and drank what I could.

Overall, this was an OK place. However, you can do so much better in Seattle, so in all likelihood I won't be back. Nevertheless, if you're stuck at the mall with a girlfriend or wife (or boyfriend or husband), this would not be a bad place to kick back with a beer while she does her shopping.
