The Ram is a private, independent, family-owned and operated restaurant business. We were born on February 26, 1971 when our founders took their entrepreneurial spirit and experiences they received making pizza and serving beer at Shakey’s Pizza Parlor to open their own restaurant. That first restaurant was called the Ram Pub, which was a “Deluxe Tavern” that served hot food, including cook-your-own burgers and steaks, along with beer and wine.
The “Deluxe Tavern” concept gradually evolved throughout the ‘70s into our casual, full-service, family-oriented restaurants of today. Our brand grew further when we opened our first fine-dining dinner house in 1980.
In 1995 we launched the Big Horn Brewing Company. By brewing our own ales and lagers, we are able to offer our guests superior quality, nationally recognized, hand-crafted beers at value prices. During this time we created some of our first TV commercials, which can be viewed by clicking the link below.
Since 1971, the Ram’s primary commitment has been to always provide our guests with superior quality food and gracious hospitality. Although Big Horn Brewing Company is now one of the largest brewpub companies in the country, the goal of our brewers continues to be to produce the freshest, most “drinkable” beer of the highest quality.
The future of the Ram is bright and promising. In 2001 the second generation assumed leadership of Ram International and has infused Ram with vitality and vision. As we continue to grow into new markets, we remain committed to instilling in our Team Members the dedication to excellence and guest service that has inspired us since 1971.
