“Good bar scene if you can get a seat.”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Great TVs and location and good bevearge choices and pub food. But makes very very popular for sporting events. Get there really early if wanting to watch NFL or NCAA Basketball.

“A Place to watch Games”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We found the food pretty good, the waiter needed a little more training and the sound level was not to our liking, but the beer was good and the family with the children were having a great time climbing in and out of the windows of the restaurant... I would go later in the evening to miss the families with little ones if you want a quiet romantic dinner. Maybe the music and tv's would be turned down some also..

“The Same”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

Carolina Ale House is your average bar and grill. The food is the type that one would find at you Chilis, Applebees, etc. The fries are awesome.

“Zingers were wonderful wish I only ordered that”
Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

Tried something new and tried nachos and onion straws could have done without either. Didn't like nachos with the whole bean chili. Onion straws not cooked enough. Loved the zingers like always best part of the meal.

“Keep Driving”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Nice place, great atmosphere, LOTS OF TV'S!!, but way too expensive for what you get. I ordered the CAH Turkey Club almost $9 for 1/8 of a lb. of smoked turkey, maybe 2 slices of grease soaked cold bacon, a slice of tomato, and a piece of lettuce on a stale pita. The Fries were pretty good, but would have liked something more than ketchup. Sarah J. was a great waitress! I would have like to sit somewhere else, but was not given a choice. $30 for two sandwiches, fries and two soft drinks, that's why I say keep driving.
