My wife and I met our daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren there for lunch after a stress filled morning with the unexpected passing of a parent. This was a blessed break in a difficult time, WE were there just after the lunch rush so the restaurant was a bit quieter than one would normally expect...again a blessing. Our server, Gabriel, was... More

Picked up the daily special; chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans. Delicious and very reasonably priced!

The Ale House has good food and the atmosphere is great for watching sports during the mid day hours, but once the sun goes down. It becomes a haven for sloppy drinkers and rowdy pool players.....

My son and I shared wings, loaded fries and we each had French Onion soup. Everything was good, not great. The fries were a little soggy but still pretty good. There was an issue with the order the food came out (we requested our soups first and ended getting them last), so the manager comped the whole meal. Would definitely... More

This place is very close to my house and it is large enough to accommodate large groups. The food is decent enough and the service is typically always good. We like to sit outside on the patio and let the kids play where we can watch them and still have some private time. Some dishes are better than others but... More

The food is typical bar food. The dry rub wings are a must try. Best thing on the menu. It is very noisy and always crowded so service is slow which you can understand. Wait staff are so busy hard for them to be friendly. Great place if you want to catch a game or be in a crowd but... More

Just stopped in to sample the beer and hang with one of my friends. The place was packed, so we had to sit at the bar. The bartender was super friendly and the beer was a pleasant surprise. I had a sampler of four beer flights which I enjoyed. The place was pretty loud, but I wouldn't expect anything different... More
