Great Burgers

Three of us ate dinner here recently. It was quite crowded when we arrived. We waited about 15 minutes for a table. Once seated we waited a bit to be served. Once our waiter arrived at our table he was helpful with suggestions about the different burgers and beers. After he placed our order we... read more

You can't go wrong with this menu, so many choices, such good food. Located on Aurora St. Downtown Ithaca, friendly and reasonably priced. Great beer and ale selections to accompany your meal. A fall and winter favorite from the menu, believe it or not Three Grill Cheese sandwich and tomato soup, or soup of the day. Spring/Summer outdoor dinning. Great... More

Margherita pizza rated "perfect" by the teenager and my wife thought her plain burger was outstanding. I ordered the "ba$tard burger", which did not disappoint (dollar sign cuz review won't publish with "profanity"). Crusted with black pepper, and topped by an onion ring and spicy "Arrogant Ba$tard Ale" mustard, it was a great combination of flavors. We asked the helpful... More

There isn't a parking lot, so I wanted to make sure that if we parked in the parking garage, they validated for parking. I called and they said they did. They don't. Make sure that you park somewhere else.

Always enjoy the Ithaca Ale House. Food is good, service is good, a table outside is great, and prices are reasonable. Get the "Fat Kid", a burger on TWO grilled cheese sandwiches.........awesome place! (Justin, server, was excellent)

From the delicious tap beers to the entrees, this ale house is an Ithaca must-visit. It's a noisy bar so set your expectations accordingly, but you won't be disappointed with the food. Yum!

On vacation, tried this place due to large beer selection and reasonable prices. On "restaurant row" (Aurora Street) in downtown Ithaca. Very good, huge burgers-in fact, mine was so large with the toppings that I ate it with a fork! Waitress was a little slow, but we didn't mind as we were on vacation. Burger dinners in the $10-15 range.... More
