We came for dinner and drinks during Happy Hour and we not disappointed. My husband and daughter had beers I had a Martini. Our dinner was delicious but out server was busy and not very attentive or we would have had more drinks.

Great food, good service, great for families. Homemade potato chips are a must. Love the pub menu which offers some delicious alternatives to the standard pub menu.

My wife and I drove specifically to check this place out. Good reviews, etc. however we showed up on a Wednesday night at 7:30 pm. The place was half empty and they had like 4 people working. We sat at the bar and the bartender was covering half the restaurant handling 14 tables. Took 15 min to get a beer.... More

My wife and I stayed at a nearby hotel and were hungry. I looked on Google Maps, and we found the Ale House. Good selection of beer, and the food was tasty. I had the mussels and burger sliders, both very good! We didn't know Bothell was a college town until we saw all the University of Washington Husky jerseys!... More

Good food, good beer on tap. The Ale House burger is a knife and fork burger IMHO, it's that large. If you want simple non fussy American fare, this is your place.

Service is good, food quality is great. Parking is not so great since their move. Burgers are great and their chips are addictive.

This is a converted old home that retains all the charm of such a place. As you walk upstairs to the restrooms, your hand touches the dark wood railing, you can sense the generations who went before you on that stairway. The dining rooms at the top of the stairs take you back to a time when a meal was... More

The atmosphere may be casual but the Main St Ale House is very serious about their beer, ale and menu. The ale house does get noisy but outdoor seating is available for a quieter dining experience. The waitstaff was very knowledgeable about the various ales available. My son raved about the mac & cheese and I opted for the nachos,... More

The Main Street Alehouse is a blend of small counter bar and a moderately sized restaurant. When full, it is quite loud (unless it's nice out and you are fortunate enough to get a seat in the outside area behind the restaurant). The food is really quite good; most entrees come with Main Street Ale House's homemade potato chips---the spicy... More
