855 China Basin @ Illinois
The Ramp's claim to fame is their large waterfront patio. Dining
is available during breakfast and lunch, and the bar is open
til 8. I hear on Sundays they offer salsa music and a barbecue.
I was there on a Friday afternoon and the joint was hopping.
The view is spectacular, all the way across the bay on a clear
day. Sitting in the sun with a cocktail or burger ain't a bad
Hm. You gotta think of it like a sports bar. The menu has burgers,
sandwiches, fish and chips and the like. $6-$9. Standard fair.
Well, they sure do know how to fry to perfection. My club sandwich
was very good. My friend got the chicken breast sandwich, and
the chicken was falling off the plate. The fries are curly.
What more can I say?
Oh, except the iced tea was like lemon water.
If it weren't for the service, I probably wouldn't be writing
a review of The Ramp. Our guy? He tried. He seemed to be very
busy and working hard. But it took us close to half an hour
to get our drinks. By that time, people seated after us already
had their drinks and food. No no no!
Reservations: Not necessary.
It's a really tasty sports bar with some not so tasty
