We dine at Rampart's every 2-3 months, usually on Saturday nights where they offer 1/2 price wines from their good wine list. Everything clicked this time--we were greeted quickly and escorted to a booth. While I was not thrilled with the location (right by the kitchen and bar) as the evening progressed there was minimal impact on our dining experience.... More

We had brunch here on New Year's Day with my daughter and her boyfriend. Ramparts is a comfortable tavern, the kind of place where everyone meets for a meal or drinks. Brunch was very good, and we enjoyed yummy bloody marys with our meal. Very nice experience.

Went here to watch some college football. Nice little spot. The waiter was great, he talked about the game with in addition to his great service. The food was really good and they had a great beer selection.

Such fabulous food for a bar. Nothing terribly fancy or cutting edge, just really great food in an old fashion neighborhood. Every time we've gone it was consistently great.

Really liked the atmosphere here. Great service. Plenty of tv's for sports. Had a group of 5. Great list for wines. I loved my burger. The salads are large. However both people who ordered crab cakes were disappointed.

We found this place while googling restaurants near a concert venue. The reviews seemed to be OK so we tried it. I am so glad we did! We arrived about 5:15 to a nearly-empty restaurant. By the time we left at 7, the restaurant was full and some were waiting. It was obvious from the chatter that there were many... More

Wonderful brunch specials plus regular menu. Breakfast items are especially good. Soups and sandwiches good too. Small place but didn't feel rushed and service was good.

Ramparts is literally a short walk from a friends Arlington neighborhood. We have visited this bar quite a few times for a quick beer and bite to eat. Generally we sit at the bar but don't under estimate this restaurant. It is much more than a bar. The interior would lend easily to a small wedding reception or party. There... More

We come here whenever we visit friends who live nearby. Nice unpretentious mom-and-pop style place for either a meal with the family or a viewing at the sports bar’s many monitors. Both areas are two different rooms with their own entrances so they don’t intrude on each other. Food and beverages are good and the place is within walking distance... More
