Delicious

Very casual, a bit noisy. But a good selection on the menu and everything we've tried has been good.

My boyfriend and I came here late Tuesday, just after arriving in the area. We were hungry and this was literally the only place open! We had a steak sandwich and a crab cake sandwich, and we were not disappointed! I actually went back the next night to way dinner again. I had the cobb salad with grilled chicken and... More

What a treat! We went for brunch on a Sunday which lasts until 2pm. My husband had the western omelet and I had the Belgium Waffles. We shared wings with hot and bbq sauce. Wings were perfect. Our food was cooked great and portions were nice. We sat at a high top table near the bar so we enjoyed a... More

Nice atmosphere and the food was good. Bar was very busy, so we sat at a table. Service was friendly and prompt.

Had lunch here and the food and service was very bad. Fries were soggy and drenched in grease. The burgers were not cooked right and tasted really bad, left a terrible taste in my mouth for hours after. Salad was wilted and seemed to be sitting out for hours. The waitress delivered the food and then never showed up again.... More

Pretty pricy but the food was great and the atmosphere romantic. The restaurant is a little tight but it was nice.

Family of six having a late late lunch on a Saturday about 3.30 PM. Place was fairly empty, couple of people at bar, maybe 2 or 3 small tables in restaurant. All of us were hungry, went there on a word from someone, not a recommendation. Ordered 6 drinks, 3 cocktails, 3 beers. The beers were good, 2 of the... More

I have been patronizing the Ale House since it opened in '97, and at various times could be considered a "regular." I have been for brunch, lunch, dinner, late night snacks, special dinners, and drinks at the bar. I've dined here alone, with friends and family, on dates, and as part of business meals. Of all the (many) times I've... More

I especially liked the bowl of chili which had a large amount of cheese covering the whole top. The home made pretzels were especially nice with the garlic butter although a little over priced at $9 for two large pretzels and three types of dips. I tried a number of different local beers which was nice as the bartender knew... More

This restaurant is special for my husband and I. We met here for the very first time, and decided to come back for my birthday this past Saturday evening, May 9th. To keep my comments in the right frame of mind, I have never written a negative, critical review, and my husband and I dine often: from NYC to pubs... More
