This place is a well-known sports bar and restaurant, so we dropped in for drinks during a Mariner's game. TVs are everywhere, and the place was crowded. We ordered Mariner's Teas, which were blue-colored mixed drinks served in carafes. We allso tried the Buttface Amber, and Crab Artichoke Dip. Everything tasted good, and it was a great place to catch the game.

I can't help being a little disappointed though, since I went there several years ago during my days at the University of Washington (next door). The Ram has gone through a remodel and is now more a standard chain, like Red Robin. It's still good, but you don't have "$2 Tea Tuesdays" where the drinks were cheap and super strong, and it felt like a neighborhood pub. Now the mixed drinks are mild and fruity, to appeal to a more general taste. I just miss the old days.

Bottom Line: Good for drinks, especially at game time.
