If you like cheeseburgers, go HERE and try the signature burger with a fried egg on top. This is probably not good if you are watching your cholesterol, but I think it is worth the risk just once! Tremendous staff who are friendly and outgoing. The selection of beers is impressive and they are served bone-chilling cold. Very nice place... More

If you're looking for a burger and a beer, this place is hard to beat. Lots of burger choices - I had the Campfire Burger (cheese, BBQ and onion straws) with a side of onion straws and a flight of tap beers. The beer flight is a good way to try out three different beers. I love the onion straws... More

We are not drinkers but we decided to stop in this restaurant because the menu sounded good. I had a salad with one of the best dressings I've ever had. I believe our server called it a cucumber dressing. My husband had a "stuffed" burger, stuffed with bleu cheese, bacon, and peppers. I tasted it and it was fabulous. I... More

Stopped here while visiting during a town fair. They had a special on Bloody Marys so I had to have one. They are made to your taste and very good. I ordered filet sliders on pretzel rolls. Problem is I couldn't eat them they were so tough. I doubt if it was filet. I could hardly wrestle a bite out... More

This place is a must-go if you like to explore all kinds of beers, ciders and ales. Great burgers and the choice of toppings are unique and quite good. The craft beer selection numbers over 100 and they change often.

Great environment, excellent pub food and more. Good menu and you can't go wrong with anything on it. The servers are friendly, responsive and accommodating.

We stopped after the Flea Market to watch our team and grab a burger and a cool beer. What a delightful surprise! The food was amazing…Door County Cheese Curds served with bacon aioli and the Ale House Burger…8 oz with applewood smoked bacon, sharp cheddar, grilled onions and a fried egg…plus house made potato chips. Quiet Saturday afternoon with great... More

Our group of 5 had dinner at the Geneva Ale House last Tuesday night! Got seated right away (it was pouring rain, I think people stayed in) Our server was very friendly, told us about the specials and took our drink orders. I ordered Zombie Dust on draft, I've heard good things about this beer, and it was delicious! We... More

It was a busy Friday night, so instead of waiting for the table we sat at the bar. The bartender was very friendly and provided great service. He told us that they'd had a special meal earlier in the week that included rabbit and quail, so the soup of the night was a rabbit and quail stew. I had to... More
