Great wings and friendly service

We've eaten here several times and each time our service was very good. The food isn't overly creative, but that's what we like. The wings were cooked and seasoned perfectly. The "meat head pizza" was awesome. We love thin crusts and they couldn't have made a better one. We loved it. The "fiery... read more

Lots of screens, every game is shown and you can get a seat and a beer near the team if your choice (usually). I hear there is food too but as you can tell it isn't memorable. It's average bar food in a fun sport bar setting.

Gluten free options, great food and great service!! Kids really enjoyed to menu selection as well. Cool atmosphere whether you want to sit at the bar, inside the restaurant or even have an open-outdoor option.

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

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.
