Fine beer on tap. Happy Hour a real bargain! Half price appetizers and drinks Mon-Friday 3-7. Friendly servers. Located close to the heart of the city of Annapolis, in the inner West Street business district. A participant of Dining Under the Stars on Wednesday and Saturday, enjoy live music while dining outside.

Only one complaint from our lunch. They obviously don't pay attention to the special requests when I book through Open Table. I had indicated it was a birthday and no mention, but more importantly I had asked to be seated in the front corner since we would have a stroller with us. Instead they had 2 men sitting at that table for 5. Frustrating. But the service & food was good after that.

I've eaten at the Ramsshead Tavern dozens of times over the years before shows. The food was always MUCH better than it was last night. The crab soup was vegetable soup with a TEASPOON of cold crab meat sitting on top. That is NOT how to make MD crab soup. Understandably, crab meat is very expensive right now. So, raise the price, but don't mess up the recipe! I ordered a burgar it was so well done and dry it was almost not worth eating. A bottle of wine (that is $10 at (at most liquor stores) was $35 per bottle. I understand they have to mark up, but really?

Service was good. Real noisy in the bar area (sports on TV and a lot of yelling). We ate in the restaurant and the noise level was acceptable.

Ladies room paper towel machine was stuck. We reported yet no one even put paper towels out on the sink! REALLY ?

Sadly, I won't eat there again. Too many other options in Annapolis area.

The deviled eggs and fried brie was tasty. Didn't care for Mac and cheese, tasted like one of those out of the box brands.

The waitress was terrible. Slow and sloppy service. She forgot us while she was working behind the bar and we had to remind her of our existence twice. And one order was placed wrong and his food came after everyone else finished.

The service was terrible. Our server was bizarre. I only know his name because it was on the receipt. Bacon burger came out of the kitchen without bacon. One of the pizzas had no sauce. The dishes they got right were uninspired. We had to go up to the bar to get our own refills. The bartender seemed alright. No one came to check on us. Several staff sitting around as we left and I couldn’t find the manager. No one thanked us for dining there. There are many better choices in the area. This dinner stunk.

Of the 6 people there 4 out of 6 meals were good. I would avoid the steak sandwich. The service was not attentive and there were always a great deal of people standing around. Lots of plates left on the table after appetizers, but drinks were not replenished until the end of the meal and those glasses were also left on the table. Management seemed to catch on a bit towards the end, as we saw him ask someone to bus our tables. But by then we were already finished. Overall our server who I truly believe was née was as nice as could be. But the lack in service was not due to lack of staff. This instance was more of just forgetting we were there. For us we will not be coming back to eat here. I think it is still a fun place for the bar and concerts.

Our experience was just average at best. Started out poorly with hostess seating us at a table in a busy hallway next to a restroom. Requested another table which they accommodated. Ordered crab dip as an app which took 45 minutes to arrive. We ordered the fish tacos and the cast iron crab cake. Both entrees were fine, nothing to write home about. Our server Abby was excellent.

The food was excellent and the service was very good. It was easy to make a reservation. But the booth was a little dark. Also, the sound from the music next door was a little distracting.

Unfortunately, the food, drinks and service was sub par and failed to meet minimum expectations. The restaurant ran out of many ingredients from the special drink menu; and when we asked for a lemon drop martini, it lacked any taste. Won’t visit again.

I appreciate how difficult it’s been getting restaurants back up and running at capacity. It seems Ram’s Head is understaffed, having just 4 waitstaff members for a Saturday night. The staff did its best, was kind and respectful and overall we had an enjoyable evening.

Service was awful. Took 20 minutes just to get water. My father is elderly and doesn’t move well, The hostess tried to seat us in a booth way in the back when no one else was seated in the entire room. When we asked to change tables, she basically rolled her eyes at the thought of the inconvenience to her.

Food was really mediocre at best . Crab dip had way too much cream cheese in the recipe, not enough bread . My mahi was dry so was the rice with it . And the dessert options were limited, almost all involved chocolate or peanut butter. I’m a key lime or creme brûlée person .

Mostly a bar that serves the standards, plus some Maryland favorites. Kind of smelled like a bar, but preferred to sit in the bar area because the dining room looked sort of depressing. Great crabcake though - no filler!

Not overly impressed. Soup came out luke-warm. Burger very bland. Rueben was average. Not sure how it’s so highly rated to be honest. Cool spot for a beer, and great ambiance, but not somewhere I’d recommend for food.
