Great beers and burgers

Here for an overnight trip and a tour of the nearby Ithaca Beer Co. Kobe burgers and apps were amazing and the beer selection is great! Will definitely come back. Was busy but we took seats at the bar until our table was ready....

Went there at the weekend. Beer selection excellent. Food was plentiful and the waiter friendly and helpful. Nice relaxed late lunch. Couldn't ask for more.

For the beer lovers in our group, there were many choices and knowledgeable bartenders. It was busy in the bar/restaurant, but we were seated before the stated time and the food was good. The burgers were exceptional and the portions were generous.

Very nice facility. While no free tastings, unless you do the 1 hour tour, the flights are very diverse and cheep. The food here is amazing and everything is fresh- gotta try the beer cheese soup any time of the year, to die for! Homemade rootbeer floats make a great dessert also.

This place has great burgers. Good portions. Half of our party had burgers and they enjoyed it. I had a Reuben sandwich and it was good. They also had a good selection of beer and the menu does recommend what beer goes with what entree. The waiter also will recommend the beer for you.

The prices are very high for this type of food, especially when it was not cooked as we requested. On top of that, our server was indifferent when we informed him we weren't happy with our meals. He essentially just shrugged and walked on by.

They have an impressive beer selection and a knowledgeable wait staff. However,the food menu is limited. I ordered a veggie burger. It was cold, dry and the toppings were not the freshest. There are better places to eat a short walk away.

The menu features typical pub grub which is fine for the Ale House. They have a great selection of brews. I wish I remember the name of the bar keep - but his knowledge of beers wasexpansive - best I have run across in a long time.
