I visited on a Saturday evening and was able to sit right down. We had pretzel sticks as an appetizer. I thought they had decent taste but they were too dry! I wasn't overly hungry and only order the boneless chicken wings app as a...More

During our week in Indianapolis we visited the Ram on a number of occasions. The giant silo outside is an easy land mark to spot and the service inside is very friendly, quickly putting us at ease. They have a broad range of home grown...More

Atmosphere is awesome, the food is always good. The service can't be beat. Don't make the mistake of thinking St Elmos is the only game in town, this place is a must!

We are coming into town for the DCI Championships and need a place for a large group of parents to get together for an early lunch on Friday August 12. Everyone would need to be on separate checks but would probably be a group of anywhere from 25-50 people. This is the first time we have all tried to get together so not sure just how many people will be able to make it. But we need a definite place and then can get a more accurate number. Is this something your restaurant could handle on a Friday?
