Came here for a quick bite before heading to a movie. Had wings and salad. The wings were awesome! The house salad was very good,the Greek salad- could have been better. Very good service, good food for the price. I highly recommend this place if you are in the area.

The wife and I come here about once a month, especially on a game night. College basket ball for her NFL football for me. Friendly, prompt service from the staff. Tasty hot food. My wife loves the crab dip and their buffalo wings. I love their burgers. The bathrooms are clean. I wish they served Reds Apple over Angry Orchard,... More

We have been there a few times and won't go back. Each time they got our food and drink orders wrong. Last time we were there with friends it was a disaster. We had to wait a long time for our drinks and then they were wrong. We ordered our food, and after waiting about 30 minutes the manager came... More

Fast service, great food in a clean and friendly environment. Huge portions and a varied menu and take-out is also available. The prices are reasonable.

We've been to a couple different Carolina Ale House locations, and this location several times. Service is usually good (a little lackluster this latest visit). The food is very good (normal sports bar fare). The honey buffalo wings are excellent and my favorite is the Island-style Shrimp Tacos (amazing combo of creamy, spicy, and meaty). Definitely glad we're getting a... More

Service was great. Will be back. The food is pretty good too. The wings are excellent. Love the seating with television viewing for all. The outdoor covered deck with the bar is nice.

Big, open sports bar. Ok menu, works well for this setting. Beer selection has definitely increased over the last couple of years so if you have not been there because of that take another look.

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!
