“Great Beer Selection; Good Burgers and Aps”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

If you are looking for beer selection beyond the normal, than this place is for you. Geneva Ale house has a great (and plentiful) selection of beers and the atmosphere is cozy and comfortable. We live nearby and visit often as their beer menu changes from week to week. The food is very good as well, especially the grilled cheese burger!

“Beer and More Beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

This place has more beer than you can imagine. We only sampled beer and ate some fried pickles. The pickles were great and the food that was served around us looked very good. The service was very good and the beer was better. The menu looked very good and we will return to try some of the food. This time it was just beer and more beer.

“Great food, nice people, delicious beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

We are frequent visitors with and without our children and love coming here to sample many different beers and to eat really great food. Their burgers and the Cuban sandwich can't be beat while the fried dill pickles appetizer with scratch-made sauce is tasty every time.

“Excellent Burgers and Beer selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

Geneva Ale House has excellent beers and food. I have never been disappointed there with any of the beers I have had. The staff is excellent and helpful and they can pick out a beer for you if you feel overwhelmed with the selection. Three Floyds GumballHead is by far my favorite beer.
I recommend the Black and Blue Burger its excellent with tons of blue cheese crumbles.
I come here about every other week with friends or the family.

“Geneva's cure to what ales you”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

Short notice dinner plans had us walk into this friendly place. A perfect place to spend a couple of hours!

Good: Beer selection, nice bar, staff, location, free parking

Bad: noisy - needs more fabric to make it quieter

Anyone inspired: our waitress was awesome!
