“Kid Freindly sports bar! Awesome Wings and Waitress!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Took a minute to get seated but staff was busy, no big deal. Waitress was right on time with order, drinks, food, etc etc. Awesome wings, really great zinger wrap that my wife had. Ale House is always good, we have been to them in Florida, NC and now SC. Love all the locations!

“Large Sports Bar with a Small Town Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

We were there on a week night and it wasn't crowded. Obviously, there are MANY TV's for sports fans and the selection of beers on tap is ample. Our service was great and the prices were reasonable. We plan to return for a sporting event.

“Never Go Back!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

We have tried, time and time again, to like the Ale House. There is not one thing I could comment nicely on. From the food (horrible) to the service to the management to the parking!! NOTHING is worth enduring this place...NOTHING!!

“Lots of TVs best rooftop but drinks and food are poor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

Revisited twice in the same week. Friday evening, friend ordered a mixed drink that arrived in a glass I'd consider a shot glass. I ordered the cowboy salad which usually is on a plate and quite generous. It's been insmalled to a regular salad bowl and I had a total of 4 pieces of meat. Our waited acted as though he was clueless to any question asked.
Returned on Sunday at request of friends wanting to watch football. Dry rub wings, greasy and raw. Took her to Liberty and she said why didn't we come here first??!!! I always end up asking myself that. Had removed myself from dining here before and I will return to that stand.
