Ventured there with four. Street parking or a garage available. No one in our party of four did not use the bathroom facilities so no comment can be made on them. Have eaten there several times and will return. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere satisfactory. They have a full bar and... read more

This is a fun spot on restaurant row with a college feel, but not up on the collegetown hill. Enjoy a burger and (for the gluten-free like me) hard cider.

They have a great food selection and everything is delicious. What I like about it the most thought is the different beer selections they have and it's a great place for catching a drink with some friends.

The burgers are amazing, flatbreads delicious, and beer selections incredible. This time my daughter and I got the nachos and split a burger. We took most of the burger home and a box of nachos.

They Serve Kobe Beef and that's not all they serve it with brie cheese. If that were not enough to earn an excellent they also serve a Angus burger with grilled cheese sandwiches as buns.

Trying many venues for lunch we found the burgers at the Ale House exceptional and their assortment of beers well worth mentioning. Service quick and affable.

Think of Applebees, only more expensive, louder and slower. That 's pretty much the ale house in a nutshell.

Best veggie burgers I've ever had! It's a pub and always crowded with college kids so I was not thrilled the first time my son dragged me here. But everything is homemade and excellent. My go to place in Ithaca.
