What's terrific place to hang out with friends. Great pub and eating place for the college crowd. It can get loud but the place is always jumping. Cool atmosphere.

If the number of customers is any indication of a restaurant, then Ale Works is easily one of the best and most popular places in Bozeman. No reservations, so arrive early if you don't want to wait or walk a bit from your car. Ale Works offers a great selection of beers, the service is efficient and quick and the... More

I am a frequent diner at Ale Works. I bring friends from out of town and my family too. It has the perfect beer selection to get a taste of the area. The food is always up to par on quality too. Service has always been great too. I have eaten here probably 40 times or so and only once... More

The Ale Works was a very fun and lively place to eat and drink. Food was good and large portions so I would suggest sharing. Dark and cosy and a fun places to be with friends or a date night. Prices reasonable and service very good!

Went here on a Saturday night after a day trip to Yellowstone. They have a nice pager system that will text your cell phone when your table is ready so we ended up walking around the old downtown area of Bozeman. Staff was knowledgeable about the food, beer and gluten free options. The burgers and fries were great. Some of... More

We go to Ale Works whenever in Bozeman. It was the usual packed parking lot and restaurant at 4:30 on a Friday. Fun atmosphere and friendly service. Skip the chicken enchiladas--bland and tasteless. I was really stunned as food is usually very good here. The flourless chocolate cake is nothing to brag about either. Bummer visit--hopefully next time will be... More

Great selection of local brews. There are several options as to where to dine in this restaurant. There is the bar area, separate dining adjacent bar and an isolated area away from the bar which is nice for those not wanting the bar scene. They have an awesome pot roast which was recommended and I make it my go to... More

Dined here several times while in town on business. Very large, diverse beer selections. Service was always good. The Monday special roast beef is the best I have ever had.

We were staying in Bozeman on our way to Glacier National Park. We love brew pubs and found this one on your website. The place was packed (good sign) and we ended up eating at the bar (once we got seats!). No big deal for us as we like that atmosphere. Bartenders are very knowledgeable about the different beers, and... More
