I never thought that I would order Mac and Cheese at a restaurant, but the smoked cheeses and incredibly complex flavors make this an amazing dish. The beer and food menu is extensive and the food delicious. A great night out.

You'll find some incredible and rare beers here that you will not find anywhere else on the North Shore. The food is okay, but slightly upscale for bar food. Still, don't go for the food, as it isn't great, but the place is worth going to for the beer.

Tip: Ask for the table by the window overlooking the river.

The restaurant is in a beautifully restored building. It has booths, high top tables and a first and second floor. A large bar with seating is available as well. The menu is varied with several choices and prices. We enjoy the pulled pork sliders and the chicken Parmesan. All aspects of the meal were great including the service

Ale House is our favorite spot for a good beer and above average pub food. Sister restaurant to the Barking Dog (also a favorite). They take their beer seriously so you can always count on a great selection of high quality brews.

Phantom Gourmet was right on...you have not had gourmet mac and cheese until you have tried the creamy, smoky blend of delicious cheeses they use here. Good food and fair prices with great beer selection. Its a fun place to meet, whether sidling up to the bar, any one of the tables looking out into historic Amesbury, or choosing one of the quiet cozy booths. Our favorite place is the loft overlooking the beautiful waterfall that cascades right by the windows. The staff is friendly, and we've always enjoyed our evenings out there. Try one of their unusual martinis someday!
