Very friendly atmosphere. We had an awesome time getting to know some of the staff. Marissa was very attentive and made sure everything was perfect. The food was incredible. Kitchen staff definitely stood out. Everything was right on point. Fast and efficient. Recommend the Mac and Cheese Burger medium rare. Best bourbon wings I've had there in a long time.... More

Three of us, on business, stopped in for dinner and had a great meal and experience. The restaurant isn't white table clothes and linens, so don't go if that's what you want. It was exactly what we wanted. It has a great draft beer selection, great food and service. We were able to watch the Olympics on their numerous TVs.... More

The Ale House has a varied menu, different craft beers on tap, a nice wine list, specialty drinks and a bar. We had our book club meeting, and there was no problem with separate checks. The hostess and waitstaff were friendly and accommodating, placing us in the corner of the rustic room so we could discuss the book as well... More

Thanks Keith. We appreciate you stopping in and apologize for it being difficult to find us. Our parking is around the back of our building and in the street in the front of the building on both sides of the street for the time being. The renovation we did was keep the retro original as much as we could with... More

Great place for lunch or dinner. Good fresh food. I have held a baby shower, 30th and 21st birthday parties here. Great venue, everyone enjoyed themselves. They even made a special drink just for the parties to honor the birthday girls. I have been here many times and will go back again.

Having been a loyal customer since they opened over 2 years ago, I must now say it is time to bring my loyalty elsewhere. Little by little, staff changes, significant price increases, and complete disregard from management when I attempted to reach out to them. I went recently and tried 1 of their monthly "Drink specials" as they are called.... More

I was dismayed by the majority of the reviews I read, but thankfully observed none of the various complaints. I am picky, so I do have my negative feedback. Turkey club was excellent. Lots of food on the plate, fairly priced. The fries were the right temperature. Beer selection lacked depth, but I had two stout options and was happy.... More
