The place is always lively. Friendly waiters and on time with the food. Some place to get good eats and of coarse your drinks are plentiful. I would definitely stop by again!

While closing out my aunts estate i had the opportunity to stop in to the First Street Ale house. From the initial greeting through dinner the staff were always courteous and eager to serve. They provided great recommendations on food and beers and were never to far away if you needed something. Great Job !!

We went there for a wedding rehearsal luncheon, and it was in their back patio. Their selection of beer was excellent, and the variety of food, in terms of starts and entrees were quite extensive. And their service was quite good as well.

How do I condense this review? Their menu is great and delicious and ample pub fare. Soups, salads, sandwiches, interesting sides and oh my God the burgers!! and a grilled cheese special of the week. (I am a fan of the mushroom and swiss burger). We choose indoors to eat most times. The guys say the beer offerings are great,... More

We were hungry, it was late after 9pm and a friend suggested this place. We were seated quickly, our order was taken quickly and service was prompt and friendly. We had two orders of fish and chips and a steak salad. the fish and chips were very good but the portions were not that big. The steak salad was delicious.... More

Well since this was rated #1 i thought we would try. Not really sure why its #1, our server talked so fast you could barely get a word in and when the food came Out it was just warm. Maybe it had been sitting for a bit. Nice sitting outside but definitely better restaurants in that area.

Stopped I at the first stree ale house for a late lunch. First time going ther and it was really good. Great service, the burger and fries Were big enough to feed two people, though we each had our own. Service was fast and we got our food in a reasonable amount of time. It was hot and very good....
