This place has a prime location by the Epicenter in the middle of Uptown. Good is OK but consistent and they have good beer. Good place to go for enjoying a night eating outside.

I was alone in Charlotte (business travel) staying at a Hotel in the Center. It took me less then 5 minutes from the Hotel to the bar, which was terribly convenient. I was eager to try some american beer, so this was very happy to find this place. I'm not your usual Sports Bar customer (I admit I have very... More

This was our first stop in Charlotte and we loved it! The burgers were downright delicious, the service was quite stellar (our waiter was hilarious and took great care of us.. I wish I remembered his name. Mack, maybe?!) and the drinks were so, so good. I recommend the burger and a sangria. Great atmosphere with a sports bar feel... More

My husband and I had a late flight into Charlotte and stopped in for dinner. We shared the cheese curds and the brisket French dip (not the best food I've ever had, but good bar food). The service was friendly and fast and the ambiance was great. I recommend it.

The French Dip was awesome. The beer was pretty good too!! My husband and I dined at the Carolina Ale House while visiting relatives in Charlotte. The waitresses were upbeat and friendly and the restaurant had a cool sports bar vibe. Our party of 4 enjoyed our meal.

Even though it was during the Belk Bowl, we were seated quickly. The waitress was very attentive; brought beverage refills without being asked, and checked in on us repeatedly. Food was excellent, portions were generous and the prices were astonishingly low. Would recommend highly.

Have it a second go and alas same horrific service. Free food again. Which is nice. But really? Hire some wait staff. Or have the ones that are racing by our table say hello I'll be right with you. Never again. Food was average too.

We were in Charlotte for the night on our way down to Naples. After a 12 hour day of driving we stopped in here and immediately loved the atmosphere. It was Monday night football, and the place was packed. Our server was very sweet. We had the fish tacos and pub burger which we really enjoyed. They put the Leafs/Anaheim... More

This place has absolutely great food. They have many options of beer and other liquors. My hubby and I love their CAH fries. The server told me they fry the fries in beer batter. Crunchy and delicious! We also enjoy their mini burgers and chili soup. For dessert we had a warm chocolate brownie with a scoop of cookie ice... More
