The Ramp

The Ramp Restaurant has been around for years.  I’ve always been a fan of Mission Rock Resort, so this week was my first visit to The Ramp.  Fortunately for me, I don’t have to go to a restaurant three times before writing a review like Michael Bauer of the San Francisco Chronicle!  The Ramp is a classic dive bar with wonderful views and lots of outdoor seating for that perfect San Francisco sunny day.

The Ramp has a huge and varied menu.  The Ramp burgers look amazing – definitely something I’ll try on my return visit.  The menu is also seafood centric with cioppino, fresh oysters and, of course, fish and chips.  The grilled fish on ciabatta looked amazing, too.

Since I’m trying to watch my weight, on this day, I chose the Crab Louis.  It was a beautiful preparation as you can see with plenty of everything one expects in a Crab Louis.  I thought the dressing was a little light on taste, but all of the ingredients were fresh and crispy.  For $14.75, I thought it was quite reasonable.

The Ramp has a full bar.  Wines run from $5 house to $11, and the selection is good.  The Ramp has a nice selection of draft and bottled beers with lots of local products to choose from.

Be warned that The Ramp is very crowded on those perfect sunny days.  There were only a few tables available when I went for lunch.  And, with outside seating, you can take your pooches.  Mine were particularly well behaved on this day.
