By now, you've been to some variation of this place a hundred times. It's a safe bet - good beer and good food. Varied menu has something for everyone. And very accommodating for our large convention group.

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!
