My husband and I were looking for a place where we could carb-load and he wanted to try their local brews, so we ended up at A1A Ale Works on a Friday night. It was pretty crowded and noisy with the happy hour crowd and we were told a wait time of 45 minutes for a party of two, but got seated on the second level after about 20 minutes.
Our table had a nice view of the Bridge of Lions, and our server Clayton seemed to be hustling with the Friday night crowd but was efficient and fairly attentive. I got the Key Lime Shrimp and Lobster pasta. It had a surprising amount of shrimp and lobster and was deliciously rich, but then again it was nearly $20 and didn't come with any sides other than the bread for the table. My husband really loved the pasta dish he ordered as well.
Their flight of beers was very reasonable at $6, but I didn't really care for any of their local beers. If you just want a microbrewery and don't care so much about food, Mile Marker brewery is about 15 minutes away near I95 and their beer across the board is much better is much better in my opinion.
Overall, I enjoyed our dinner here but would probably try other restaurants before returning. I recommend it more for a happy hour/girls night out kind of place than a romantic dinner experience.
