This place about a dozen or so beers on tap that change quite often, what I like about this place is the they have lighter beers like pilsners and Weisse Good beers without all that heavy taste. Also the food is good I like the Guinness Stew since most places don't offer it. So it has become... read more

Excellent beer options; ok food; loyal long-term clientele. You know what these places are like, but this is better than many.

I went here for lunch with several coworkers. The service was great! We both ordered fish and chips which wasn't on the menu for lunch and turns out they'd just changed their recipe. It was very delicious. The crust fell off the fish a little, but otherwise it was incredibly tasty. I appreciated that they came out to ask us... More

A person does not go to a bar to eat. This is a bar. They have umpteen televisions to watch sports and a well stocked bar - the food is bar food. I had the fried pickle appetizer and I have to admit it was the worst fried pickle appetizer I can remember ever eating. I asked the bartender what... More

Great beer selection. Tavern atmosphere. Fried pickles on the menu. You will like everything you order. A bit short on seating. A little loud - but that's a tavern - a fun place. Waitstaff does a very good job.

I'll save the lengthy descripiton here, and resort to a bullet list: 1. Extensive beer list 2. Great food 3. Great brunch options (especially after the Rutgers Half Marathon)

My wife, daughter and I stopped in at the George Street Ale House for dinner yesterday and were pleased with some good food and a very pleasant server, and a reasonable price for the food. The meal was tasty, though not authentic, Mexican (nachos & tacos) and the choice of beer and mixed drinks was good. The meal made for... More

Had an appointment in New Brunswick so we thought we would stop somewhere nearby for lunch. I checked the web for a place,LOOKED good so we took a chance. When we walked in the place had an odor like dirty mops, and it was dark and dingy. The waitress was lovely and attentive. I ordered onion soup and a wrap.... More

Had dinner with friends at George St Alehouse recently. Was seated downstairs which is devoid of atmosphere. Service was friendly and good. Food was average. Those who ordered ale/beer enjoyed it. There are more interesting, better and comparably priced restaurants in New Brunswick
