“Good food, Convenient to hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

The restaurant was right in reforming of my hotel, Hampton Inn, so it was defiantly convenient to eat dinner. The service was fast and the food was good.

“get ready to wait.. Good place togo.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

They have the largest crowd of cars in their parking lot so we stopped in..
WOW.. Packed 45-60 minute wait for table. Did hover around the bar till 2 seats opened up. Sat their had the sampler appetizer pretty good. Had a few beers great selection of beers on tap.
Prices were a little high but I guess worth it.

This is the place in Jacksonville if you want a good set down meal with friendly service and good food. The atmosphere here is awesome and when you leave you leave with a good experience!

“long wait/cold food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

Went to Carolina Ale House tonight with some friends and with a party of 10 on payday weekend we expected to wait. We were surprised that it only took about 20 minutes to get a table as the restaurant was extremely crowded. After we were sat and ordered we waited more than 45 minutes to get our food, which felt more like hours since we had 5 hungry kids at the table. The waitress seemed unconcerned that we had been waiting so long and after about 40 minutes told us the kitchen was backed up because it was busy. No manager ever came by to explain or address the long wait. When the food finally arrived it was luke warm and unimpressive. My room temperature honey bbq wings had so much sauce on them I could barely eat them. I had promised my little one dessert, so we got a mudpie (brownie with ice cream) to bring home. The brownie ended up being about 1/4 inch think and was the texture of a hockey puck and went uneaten. I highly doubt we will be returning to this establishment.

“Great Food at the Carolina Ale House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

Our waitress was very friendly and made several suggestions on menu items. Our meals were excellent and the wait time for our food was very good. You have to try the onion strings.
