As usual the food was excellent. Very attentive service. A little confusion with running my gift card to pay the check but was resolved by the manager.

The menu was great, food was very good. Service started out great but fell off. Not sure if it was because it got busier or because the waitress was training a new woman. But we’d definitely go back!

I recognize that we attended Rams Head Tavern on a slower night so we experienced a quiet evening. There was plenty of room and it felt very open. Our server, Leigh, was very friendly to our party of four. The food was very good for what it was, pub food.

The waitress was either very tired or hated her job. She did not bring silverware or straws and I almost needed a catchers glove as she dropped the drinks on the table. While I frequented this restaurant in the past, I’m sure I will not go there again.

The grilled romaine salad was delicious. Entrees included seafood fettuccine and grilled salmon. Both were meh! They lacked seasoning and the seafood dish was to include lobster, crabmeat and shrimp. All were rather skimpy. Actually had only two shrimp in this dish that cost $34. Service was great though. Erin was professional and attentive.

The jazz concert was canceled. But we turned it into a dinner out with friends. The dessert menu needs to be expanded. Although we asked the waitress her opinion about certain items, she couldn’t answer. She’s never eaten most of the dishes we asked her about. She was very matter of fact about it. I still gave her an outstanding rating, because she handled her business. She was very attentive. Hubby did give her a large tip for great service. But she needs to be able to tell us about the food if we ask. My opinion.

We were early for our reservation but our table was ready. The restaurant was packed but we had such great service. Brittney was friendly, knowledgeable, and fast. Manager Chris checked on us several times to be sure all was good. I got the bacon burger with tots and my wife got the prime rib dinner (Tuesday special). They were done exactly as we asked them to be. Great prices too.

This was our first time at the Ram's Head Tavern. We were attending a show at the Ram's Head so this place made sense! They offered 10% off of our bill and $5 off on parking in Gott's Court Garage. We got there at 5:30pm - place was moderately filled, but as we got closer to show time, the place was packed. Our waiter was quick, yet you could tell he was stretched across many tables. I assume, like many places, it's hard to find people to work. Apps ,beer, and food were great with the exception of the Bison Meatloaf. I've never had such a hard lump of meat. I know bison is less fatty, yet I make a great bison meatloaf that is moist. This stuff had no seasoning on the inside and we had a hard time cutting it. Trying to swallow it was another issue. Unsure if it was leftover or overcooked. We didn't bother to send it back since we had the show to go to and since the place was full up, it would have been awhile to get a replacement.

We will go again and I will gladly share my bison meatloaf recipe. :)

We were very excited to attend the Holiday Drag Brunch at RamsHead in Annapolis, I purchased tickets in Nov before we attended the show on 12/18, 2021.

The box office personal was UBER helpful by email & phone, as their interface to purchase tickets had a glitch & wasn't working.My hubby & I walked up from nearby where we live, very much looking forward to a wonderful time, as we knew it was a sold out show.

Upon arrival, the young woman at the box office was not very helpful, she couldn't find our name on the "list", & proceeded to make me go through my emails for "proof" of our purchase, all the while saying "People scam for tickets all the time, so we HAVE to be super careful". I had to hold a bunch of people up (who were waiting for their will call tix too) while I desperately tried to find trail of my transaction...on my phone, while my husband (who this was an Anniversary surprise for) stood waiting, in his coat, dying of heat.

I found the confirmation email & showed it to her, 100% true story, she would not accept the email for proof. Despite it being issued from their ticketing service & confirmation purchase for the day, the seating and the tickets.

We are now at 15 minutes, a line has formed and we still haven't gotten in.

My husband, who works with computers says "does this sort of thing happen often", she says "all the time but you're not on the list"...My husband, gosh bless him says "if this happens all the time, do you not have a way to check otherwise?" She says "Oh yeah, there's a list". My husband, every the polite person, does a face plant gesture & asks politely "could you check THAT list please, & pray tell, why didn't you check that in the first place?"

A hostess interrupts & says, I'll check MY (paper) list. Low & behold we are there. OMG, really?Once seated, waitress Lauren is fabulous, we order drinks (which were delicious) a& food, all wonderful & perfect. Sadly hostess was rude when seating other folks, & on our way out, same.

We came for dinner before a concert. It took an hour to get our food and the order was wrong. I ate my hamburger while watching the concert. Frustrating... They need help in their kitchen or adult supervision managing the entire restaurant. We won't try to eat before the concert the next time we visit!

Tried this place a few times before a concert but won’t be going back. Gravy for meatloaf tasted like it was from a jar and crab cake was missing the main ingredient. Food isn’t worth the price.

Even though we had reservations and we were early, they seated us about ten minutes later because they were indeed busy. But once seated the service was timely and most attentive.
Once aware of my dietary concerns & allergies the server got the chef involved. He was wonderful to make sure my meal was no only absolutely delicious but allergy safe.

We we early for our reservation and the hostess was rude about it despite the restaurant being empty. Our server has zero personality and never smiled and was not very responsive. Food came out quickly but soup was barely lukewarm. Didn’t bother to send it back because service was so bad. Place was full when we left.

Service was poor at best. We sat for over 20 min with no acknowledgement from anyone. Other tables seated; Given water & drinks and ordered food! We had to stop someone and ask who was our server. There seemed to be confusion as to who was assigned our table. If you continuously walk passed two people waiting, say something to them or get the hostess or say something to the other server (only 2 covering our area!). I feel a little extra attention should have been provided since we had been there for so long and we were there to see a concert. Time was of the essence.

They were out of the Pinot Noir my wife requested. There was a 2nd Pinot listed, but not offered as a sub. Guessing they were out of that one too?? She offered Merlots which my wife does not care for. This is not the first time this Pinot issue has happened with us at Rams Head either. Stock more!

I got fish and chips. Not provided ketchup nor malt vinegar - which they have. Got up and went to the server station and got them myself.

I love Rams Head. Our rehearsal dinner was there! But service is hurting here. Hostess was great! Made sure we got the performance package discount and parking voucher.

Our waitress was great however someone dropped the ball when one of our group of 6 got their meal/lobster after we all had eaten. We arrived very early and there were only a couple other tables occupied. When he got it he had to rush so we wouldn’t be late for the concert.
