We went here to celebrate our son's 34th birthday. I was totally shocked when he was carded on ordering a beer. I guess I am glad they are so careful. We had a long wait for food, although the restaurant was half empty. I ordered a glass of wine and thought I had gotten the sampler glass, as it was... More

I went here a few years ago and it had a great feel. We chose our hotel since the Ale House was within walking distance. We were very disappointed. We walked in around 10:00 and there were only a few people there. It was very dark and just had a weird feel to it. The staff was attentive, but not... More

I was really looking forward to visiting this establishment since it advertises such an enormous selection of beer. The staff was very nice however, we received a lot of recommendations of what not to have. Seemed sort of strange but we heeded the advice. One major downer is the coolers apparently weren't working well (we overheard staff talking about it)... More

CAH needs a serious makeover, and either more or better-trained staff. Some menu tweaks would be welcome. The menu selections are limited, and uninspiring, but the food was okay. What wasn't okay was the interminable wait for drinks, food, or anything resembling service. The decor is early 90s, and the chairs are among the least comfortable I've ever parked my... More

We were in the area for business last week and we were told about burger night here. It was a great value and delicious! The burgers were huge and we ordered some fries to go along with them. Service was slow but they were slammed! Would do it again hopefully soon! Good job here guys!

Gone here after a lax tournament. 25 people were accommodated in The Game Room. It was perfect. Burgers were outstanding as well as the appetizers. The staff were so helpful, especially with the huge beer listing. Both draft and bottles there is something for everyone's taste.

Had dinner at the Bar. Bartenders were very knowledgable and friendly. Let me try a few samples before choosing a few selections that I enjoyed. I tried the stuffed pretzel. It was a great compliment to my beverages. Would recommend and return when in the area again.

We asked our hotel desk person for a place. She recommended this place. The beer selection was excellent but the food prices were a bit steep. Kind of an upscale sports bar if there is such a thing. Just not my cup of tea.

It was nice to sit outside (and not next to a road or parking lot). Service was decent. Good beer selection. Food is okay but maybe a little pricey for what it is. i would go back.

I had lunch here with my family recently, I really enjoyed the experience. From the outside it looks like another place in a strip mall (as it is actually part of a strip mall), but inside it's quite nice and decorated in a "steak house" motif. It's nice inside, but weather permitting I would definitely recommend sitting on their patio.... More
