New favorite dog-friendly restaurant!

This restaurant has good food, great service and covered outdoor seating that allows dogs! It is difficult to find one that has all three things. We have eaten here 3 times while traveling and have not been disappointed.

This is a great place to grab wings and a cocktail. The servers always respond promptly and the food is always hot when it arrives at the table. I also like going here for lunch.

Have eaten here several times when visiting the area. Always good grill food and drinks. Occasional specials on food and beer are a great deal.

Great selection of beers at a great price plus the bone-in wings and spinach dip were fabulous. We could easily see a tv from every seat. Great service.

We were pleasantly surprised that an ale house had such good fresh food. The grilled chicken pita was really good, the chicken was tender and grilled perfectly. Ahi Tuna salad was very good as well. The portions sizes were just right and prices were fair. The restaurant is huge with lots of TV's and a few pool tables. It was... More

Wings are grilled and really good. Staff is helpful. BUT... Don't sit next to the smoking section. It reeks and the smoke blows you away when people come in and out. I had kids with me and asked to be moved because it was so bad.

Eric took special care of my cousins and I while we took out time catching up on years gone by. We were well cared for and had fun.

This was my first visit To Carolina Ale House. I had one of the best cheeseburgers I have had for a long time. That said, it's a sports bar so it is LOUD. As in so loud it is uncomfortable and nearly impossible to carry on a conversation with a person across the table. And I kept smelling cigarette smoke.... More

This restaurant had a $25 per couple 3 course meal deal for restaurant week which was a good deal. Even though was packed service didn't suffer. The select menu options all sounded good. Started with fried pickles which are my favorite. I chose the CAH chopped steak for entree which was juicy and tasty came with a side of garlic... More
