Better than expected

I got the strawberry salad with shrimp. Yum. Sat out on the upstairs balcony overlooking the water. Wonderful views.

We go to St. Augustine about 2-3 times year, and we always make sure to visit A1A, the food is really great, prices are good as well. Always great place to stop in for lunch and drinks.

We have stayed in St. Augustine many many times and somehow never went here. We decided on this trip (Our anniversary) that we would. We called ahead and they said they are not taking reservations and were pretty rude on the phone...we almost didn't go but really wanted to try the place. We went in and got our name on... More

The only person who bothered to smile at us from the hostess to the wait staff was the guy running the food out. No one looked happy to be there. Service was slow and unenthusiastic. We are local, not the usual tourist crowd. We ventured out for my birthday and thought we would check this place out. My hamburger was... More

We tried this restaurant twice. The first time was only to try the beer, (IPA) which was OK, but the chips we ordered were stale, and the salsa very bland and watery. The next day we came for dinner, which we took in the downstairs bar area, which is of course quite loud. The food ranged from very tasty (jambalaya)... More

The Bride and I stopped in for dinner last night and ordered their Mango BBQ Chicken. Now that's a meal to remember. It was tasty but not overly spicy. The atmosphere was good. Megan was our server and she did a terrific job. Very pleasant. This is not our first trip to Ale Works nor will it be our last.

We loved our bartender, Sean! Great mixologist and super friendly. The food was terrific and so was our waitress, Kelsey! Worth the wait for a table on the outside terrace with a view of the water.
