Nice place for dinner and brews! Definitely could use some work on the variety and quality of the brews, but the food sure is terrific! Overall a decent place.

Can't believe I've never rated a RAM before. I've been to a handful, and the quality has been pretty consistent location by location. Since I'm most familiar with the Schaumburg location, that'll be the one I review.

The vibe and aesthetics are markedly like a neighborhood chain restaurant, although that's not really a bad thing. Chain restaurant aesthetics are bad when they're too aggressive--Applebee's is aggressively stupid, Red Lobster is aggressively ersatz, Buffalo Wild Wings is aggressively masculine, etc. RAM's have a little bit of a soulless prefab feel to them, yes, but they're not in your face about it--they don't make the waitresses dress slutty, bad music isn't blasting, and there's no kitschy crap on the walls.

The beers are consistent. I've never had a RAM beer that knocked my socks off, but I've also never had one that wasn't at least pretty good.

The food is maybe a step above your standard chain restaurant fare, and the beers are a step above, say, Granite City, or even a good number of smaller, non-chain brewpubs. Stopping by RAM doesn't generate the same king of enjoyable adventure vibe you get from checking out a new, completely independent brewery. But it does mean you're in for solid beer in a pleasant atmosphere.

All of the beers served icy cold whether they are an Oatmeal Stout or a pils.
