GREAT GREAT GREAT service. Awesome bar food is a staple at all Carolina Ale Houses. The service this location provide, is by far the best I have experienced. If you want a perfect cocktail the bartenders Nikki and Savannah are at you beck and call.

A group of us stopped in for the evening and had a fun time. The atmosphere is pub like, and our server was nice and prompt. We ordered a variety of sandwiches, and all of them were fresh and tasty. I would recommend this place, especially for watching sporting events, tons of TVs!

Kids and parents had great selection. Staff was welcoming and attentive. Will return but not on a game day as we can imagine it gets pretty crowded there on those days.

We visited Columbia last weekend and We went to the Carolina Ale House near by the Children's Museum Edventure. I had a BBQ Cheeseburger with Fries and a drink. Burger was great & the fries were really good too. I would go back anything I am in that area.

This place is a must stop on Gameday or anytime your looking to watch a game. The fried buffalo wings were outstanding and a small order of six is plenty. The craft beer selection is enormous. I will definitely return the next time I am in Columbia.

I was in Columbia for an overnight stay on business and me and my coworkers decided to eat at this establishment. The atmosphere was fantastic and there were people everywhere. The food was generously priced and you were given quite a bit for what you paid for. Our waitress was great as well and I can't remember her name (sorry).... More

Stopped for dinner on our way to Hilton Head. It was just average. The burger were ok. The nachos used liquid cheese instead of shredded which gave them a weird taste. It was ok for what it was - something in our stomachs but this is some place that I would not returned to.

We sat upstairs so had seating with a nice view. They have outdoor and open air seating which is nice. Bacon cheese burger was very good. I substituted cheddar cheese for the American. Burgers were juicy and had great flavor. Others in our party had wings and those were good. Would definitely go again.

Been there about 20 or 30 times, so it's clear that I like it. Their burgers are excellent, and the onion strings are my favorite. The only thing I ever had that I didn't like was the Greek Pizza. Service is always cheerful and prompt.
