My family of 5 went to Davenport's Ale House on Memorial Day. We were promptly seated and the hostess, also our server, came back quickly to take our food orders. Our server, Lania, was very pleasant, but she didn't come back to the table to...check on us during the 35+ minutes we waited for our food: most likely because she had no explanation for the delay. Before the final order was submitted, Lania did come back to the table twice.. First, she told us "I forgot, we are out of fries." Then, a little later she came back to tell us that she was just told that there were no chicken tenders. So, they were out of two key items from the short kids menu of 5 entrees. My husband's burger was supposed to be medium, but was well done with a bun; he specifically indicated temperature and "no bun". My taco salad contained onions. Not requested. We did not send anything back because we just wanted to get our check for nearly $70 and escape. There were only 4 tables of guests inside and maybe 6-7 outside, with at least 3 servers and 2 bartenders. Also, there was a manager, who we identified later, hanging out back talking to two others, when we drove into the parking lot. Then, we saw him floating around the restaurant but never made a single table visit. We also saw him standing just outside the front door smoking while talking to possibly another staff member. Again, in front of the front door of the establishment! We won't return to this business.More

The food was good but th he wait was forever on drinks and food. It was not real busy and two people behind the bar and we still had to wait on a beer. Appetizer came out just a couple minutes before main meal. The...white cheese queso was delicious though.More

I realize prices are going up but when we get 2 wraps and onion rings for an appetizer and have a bill higher than a prime rib I had at Manny's something is wrong. The server was as nice as it gets but 8.99 for...9 thin sliced onion rings is pricey and they were quite greasey. We won't go back.More

We started with onion rings for $8.99 we got 8 onion rings averaged sized. They were over priced and greasy. We ordered a Build Your Own Burger. It was to be medium well and it was cooked well done. The pickles on the burger were...good. The French fries have a little batter on them, they were excellent. We also ordered the Philly cheesesteak. It was good. The service was great.More

We came because of the advertised Monday Burger special for $6.99. It was a shock to find out it was the burger from the kids menu.

First let me say my wife’s taco salad was great. The only complaint was $2 for about 2 tablespoons of guac. The reason for the 3 star is how they handled my meal. I ordered an Asian wrap, it was supposed to be with a...spicy ginger sauce. After the first 2 bites, I could tell my wrap was not spicy at all. I waited for our server to come back around as I finished my fries. Eventually, I went up to the bartender to see if she could find our server. When the server finally came around and I explained about my wrap, she commented: “It looks like they gave you a Caesar chicken wrap. Do you want me to go and get some chili sauce?” So I said yes. By the time they returned with the chili sauce, my chicken wrap was now barely warm and the sauce was chilled. When we finished and the server brought the check, she commented that the cook said they did not have the sauce to make the Asian wrap, so they decided to give me the Caesar chicken wrap. They did not even inquire if that was an ok substitute. When I commented on the ginger sauce that was supposed to be on the wrap, the server said that they didn’t even have that any longer and didn’t know why it was still on the menu and that the wrap was supposed to be cooked with the chili sauce. Note: which she was told they were out of – yet she brought me more than enough for the wrap. The only consolation was they changed the price to the Caesar chicken wrap which was $1 less.More

Love food at this place but today was bit disappointing. We had very good waitress, Leidy. But how can place be out of onion rings - that is poor inventory control. Second the loud music was more for young waiters than clientele.

Seems like a family kind of place open until 2 AM for late night dining if you need it. They were out of guacamole which was disappointing as it would have really helped the quesadilla that was very dry. The California Cabernet was marginal. Selection...of bourbons very limited - this is a beer place.More

We went there at 3:00 PM after a movie. We were a group of 15 people and the restaurant had been notified that we were coming earlier in the week. They did not have the tables set up for us. After we placed our orders,...we waited an hour for the food to begin to be served. At first only 2 people were served. It was 15 to 20 minutes later before anyone else was served. People were served two or three at a time. Some people waited over an hour to get served. They charge $1.99 extra for Guacamole. I ordered Quesedillas, so I wanted the Guacamole. When they brought the order the Guacamole was in a tiny little cup, like the sour cream, about 3 teaspoons worth. It wasn't even freshly made Guacamole. They have a lot of nerve to charge $1.99 for it. I complained to the server and asked to speak to the manager. No one ever came. The Quesedillas were good, but I won't be going back there.More

First thing to get out of the way is this is not a @millersalehouse. It is its own stand alone company and not affiliated in anyway. So the menu and any promotions are different. Now I have been to @davenportsalehouse01 before years ago and I...was impressed. So @orchid8000 and I came in expecting the worst, but after this visit I was pleasantly surprised. Are server was a very friendly and patient lady. She helped guide us through the menu and make our choices. Only bad thing is that suggestions are great, but after give a little bit more time to choose, but the service is a 8.5. In the Quality of food per cost category we are at a 1.25 per wing cost. Pretty fair price and no extra charge for extra bluecheese so definitely 8.5 here. The wings were huge compared to other places in the area The bluecheese had huge chunks that would make @bluecheese_rebellion drool. The one thing that lower this section down a bit is the sauces. Now don't get me wrong. They tasted excellent, but there are a few things that was expected that feel through. I got Hot honey garlic and sweet tangy mustard 5 wings each. Where the hot honey garlic was my favorite and had a very distinctive taste. What was not as powerful as I would like is the hot or the garlic. The later is definitely there adding to the taste and occasionally there was a note of it popping through. The heat would be there in the beginning but quickly faded out. With the Sweet Tangy Mustard it wasn't the sauce. It was when ordering the sauce is listed with the hot and spicy sauces. So I expected it to be spicy to. While it tasted phenomenal, there sadly was no heat. This was a disappointment to me. A simple movement on the menu would make this perfect. All things considered in the wings/sauces/bluecheese section is 8. Lastly is usual is ambience. Despite in it being a different company the decor and seating is much like a miller's Alehouse. Two things that did stand out to me was the patio looks nice and comfy, and there seems to be a game room on the side. I can say in Ambience it gets a 8 as well. Giving Davenport Alehouse a over all 8.25. If you like this review then please check out my Instagram page @onewednesdayweeatwings.
