Great service and delicious food!

Joshua took outstanding care of us! The sauce for the cheese curds appetizer was so good, I ate some by itself; spicy and sweet at the same time. The apple cobbler dessert was also very yummy ! :) Served hot with ice cream.

I don't believe the hostess could have been more bored and less inviting. The waiter was attentive and the food was what you could expect from a sports pub.

Sports bar for sure, and tons of beer selections. They were out of several beers we selected, which was disappointing, however they still had plenty to choose from.

Stopped here on a whim. Thought it might be cheesy and too loud but it worked out fine. It was busy but the noise was not annoying. Good wait person and service at 7-8p on a busy football night. I would go back.

The BBQ combo and fish & chips we ordered were just fine, though not outstanding, and Bradley provided prompt and attentive service. Prices are about average for the area. The large, diverse beer menu offered four IPAs, some fine seasonals, a “Pick Your Own” sampler ($7.25), etc. Carolina Ale House functions nicely as a sports bar, which is its theme... More

Chicken wings and spinach appetizers were both excellant. We all ordered different sandwiches. Rueben was very good, Pulled pork was excellent, Philly Steak was below average. Fries were good too. Multiple beers on tap and samples were provided.
