Seems to be a rundown version of the Ale House. This was last year so I don't know if it has changed.

Oysters on half shell were great !!! Our meal was good. Fried scallops needed some spices in breading. but was good. Stuffed shrimp was great, as was patty melt. Our waiter was PJ and he is the bomb for sure. Made us feel very welcome,...and was just a great addition to the night.More

Based on the reviews we were a little reluctant to have dinner here. However, Judy greeted us, provided seating and offered us drinks to start. I ordered the stuffed shrimp wrapped in bacon appetizer and my husband the ahi tuna appetizer. I had the Philly...cheese steak sandwich and fries (they were out of mac & cheese). My husband had the gyro and fries. All of the dishes were well prepared and tasty. The restaurant itself is a little bit of an arcade with a large bar and seating in booths. When we asked if the music could be turned down, it was. We enjoyed our dinner.More

Restaurant was clean, karoke on the porch, inviting. No wait to sit. Waitress was gruff, acted like it was a chore to wait on us. Being from out of state, not a very good first impression on this point. I asked her a question about...an item on the menu and she looked at me as though I had two heads and said, well YEAUH that's what it says. The menu did not state if I could get the item grilled. Anyway, she took our order and huffed off. She did not come back again until our food arrived. The food was good, very tasty! I gave 4 stars because I could just not get over the attitude of the waitress. Everything else was good.More

We were not greeted so we sat ourselves. Female server was miserable. No matter what we did to try and change her attitude, nothing worked. I am in the customer service business (airline business and was a server through HS) and my BIL managed 4...name brand restaurants for 15 yrs. Her attitude was bad enough that we will not be back. The fact that they did not have gumbo and sweet potato puffs, the reason we chose this place, we will not be returning. It’s sad bc we also came for sentimental reasons as our FIL loved this place and he passed recently so we went to remind us of him.More

This seems like it would be a nice hang out place for drinks and socializing. Food was just ok. Wouldn’t come here to eat unless it was for the atmosphere and then I would just stick with bar food type stuff (wings, raw (not cooked)...oysters, etc.) I think they have too much on their menu which keeps them from being able to be really good at any specific item. Our server was very nice and service wasn’t a problem even though she was handling the work load of at least 3 people. The food has a lot of room for improvement. I think they can’t decide what type of establishment they are. So all of it suffers. With that being said, I would never go out of my way to eat there again but would definitely consider going there for drinks with friends if I were in the area.More
