“Great food at a very reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Really enjoyed dinner here. We were a group of 11 and the service was great. I'm a wine drinker but my husband was impressed with the beer. I ordered the special: mushroom flat bread pizza. It was huge and really good. Apparently the Kobe beef sliders are a must. Huge bar for those interested.

“Great food, but a little $$”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

I loved the food it was delicious. You have to try the nachos. Good family restaurant. The servers were nice, the atmosphere was nice, lots of elbow room at the tables. However it was a little $$, but i dont mind paying more for good food. Overall: Very good

“Big Beer selection Great eats friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Finally a place in Columbia with character. It's hard to find a place in Columbia that doesn't have that "sterile" feeling. Beer selection is excellent, food menu offers something for every taste.
Our server was friendly, personable, unhurried but attentive to her tables. My wife went here on a GNO on a Wednesday night and couldn't wait to bring me out to buy me a beer on Friday after work. We couldn't get near the place! The parking lot was packed. She said they have valet parking but hey, I wasn't "going to a brew house with valet parking". When we did go back another time I really enjoyed it. Go for the beer enjoy the food and relax.

“Great beer selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

Nice atmosphere. It's still new, so I expect the service to improve over the next few months. Appetizers are awesome! And as expected, great beer selection. I recommend it

“Very nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Took a wrong turn, passed by the Ale House and decided to give it a try. Great decor, great bar and lounge. They have a wonderful selection of brews, and are happy to bring you a sample to help you decide. We had the shiracha honey glazed wings, very good. We also had the blue cheese burger, it was very good. Service was excellent even though the place was packed. The manager was on top of his game, came around to see how patrons were doing, a nice touch. We'll be back!
