Good fresh food and fun atmosphere

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.

I love the Artichoke Spanish Dip and Ribs are the best very nice servers and I love the outside space. One of my favorite date night places. - Kendra

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

Stopped in here with friend for a late lunch. We both ordered burgers and fries. The burgers here are sooo good! Their prices are pretty reasonable, and service was very good. Would come back here again and again, although, since it's a sports bar, can get very busy and noisy at times.

Right? A southern ale house that offers BBQ pork and yes I ordered the fish tacos. Skip the guacamole. Slaw, spicy mayo and mango salsa so fresh! Dan (pork eater) had the turkey guacamole wrap. He could not find the guacamole but liked it nonetheless. Now, you should know they offer 99 beers (in bottles) and about 40 on tap.... More

Stopped here after a USC football game with friends. Lots of TVs with multiple college games and some NBA preseason going on. Bar was about half full. Crowd was pretty tame. Very good listing of micro and foreign beer. We ordered what is supposed to be their most spicy wings the Thai style. For those who really like truly spicy... More

This little stretch of roadway has SO MANY restaurants to chose from. We are so happy we landed here! After ten hours in the car we were so happy that there was no wait. The place is huge and there is covered outdoor seating. We sat inside because the bar area looked like fun with all of those sporting events... More
