Probably the best Ram location I've seen. Good staff, good food and decent beer (it always seems to be about the same). The crowd inside seemed pretty nice.
I came in September '06. I was staying in Northview on my first trip to Chicago, and found that this was the closest brewpub. I had three beers, a burger and chatted at length with a guy at the bar about things to see and do in Chicago. Good times and it's a really good location, right amongst Wheeling's Retaurant Row.
Per the beer, I find that they do better on their lighter stuff, maybe putting a little more effort into it because it's more popular.

One of the best Ram's I have visited for sure. Service was hard to beat and the beers were great. Of coarse no smoking in all of IL so step outside. Selection of beers was not above average but the ones I tried were very fine--something like a 7 on a 1 to 10 rating scale. Very nice bartenders who were very gracious to serve up samplers of their beers and offer ideas about the food. Would for sure visit this location again, but like most other Ram Brewpubs, always a pleasure.

Stopped them on the way to the airport one tuesday afternoon - they had pints at 2$! Good start.

I also had read that some of the reviews that some people had given the other RAM locations, and they weren't all that favorable. Knowing this, I had a "well, we'll see" approach.

The beers were generally good, probably another B+, nothing to write home about.

The place was packed, and they allow smoking at the bar (yuck).

I had a roast beef sandwich, which was excellent.

All around, not a bad place, but somewhat run-of-the-mill. There are better places, but if you're there, you'll enjoy the beer.
