Good beer

Came here for a work do with about 40 of us. Excellent beer and good food. I guess it's the US version of a pub and it was quite enjoyable.

We had no idea that First Street Ale house does a reasonably priced Sunday brunch until we went there with friends. Get there early (it opens at 8:30) for best seating and access to the buffet. There are omelette stations with chefs, breakfast foods, lunch foods, fruits, salads, breads, desserts, soups...it's terrific. A great value for the money.

Visited for brunch again last Sunday. The outdoor patio seating (expanded in the rear) is still the best in Livermore. They change up the buffet brunch just enough to keep it interesting. The Cajun Salmon is my favorite along with the soup (usually clam chowder). Will continue to come back every month or so. Arrive early (9am on Sundays) for... More

Family friendly, beer drinker friendly, couple friendly, solo friendly..... And the food is fantastic. This is an establishment in downtown Livermore and can't be missed.

We love the Ale House, staff always friendly and accommodating, we usually sit outside because the noise level is quite high inside. I love the tri tip/blue cheese salad, very yummy, my boyfriend loves the Tri tip sandwich. Then there is the beers and Ale. Many local and artesian brews

Tried this place and had a turkey burger which was just ok, it had an interesting flavor. I would probably come back and try something else. The service was really good.

On the way back from a road trip, we stopped here to eat dinner. When I entered, it was pretty fascinating to see the world's largest collection of beer cans. We sat @ the community table. Our waitress was nice, and they were playing some old music inside the room. I ordered lemonade for a beverage, which tasted good. And... More

Great spot for beer or food. The fries were awesome and the steak sandwich was pretty good too. The bartender was cool and provided awesome service.

Overall, good experience. The watermelon beer was light and refreshing. Fish & chips were disappointing. Grilled cheese of the week was great!
