Pros: Good beer selection, great food choices, great atmosphere, pool/darts, handmade deserts, service
Cons: Service could be a touch better, nothing else really worth mentioning, service could be a little better
The Bungalow Alehouse…”Bungalow”…”Alehouse”…”Bale”, ok no one calls it Bale, but regardless, whatever you call it, it shouts good times. This is the place for “Usuals”, “Happy Hour Goers”, and those with a case of the Mondays. Beer, wings, pool tables, dart boards, great food, and excellent service. I’ve been several times, whether with my wife or a group of friends, we’ve always had a good time.
Being a Alehouse I will lead with the selection of beer. You’ve got a good selection of stouts, ales, wheats, and lagers, about 25 different beers. I wouldn’t say a lot of them are significantly great and different. Although, my opinion doesn’t count because I’m not a huge beer drinker…yeah, I’m that guy.
The food has always been pretty good. They just redid the menu awhile back. Expect your usual bar foods with a little added quality. I’m not sure what it is with Alehouses trying to go above and beyond for food but I like the effort. I’m a big fan of the wings and all of the sauces. I have to give them props for the deserts, all are handmade daily and switch out regularly.
Service has always been pretty good. A group of us have come there 10+ times but sadly they never seem to remember us. I guess that is my own personal standard, if you go more than 5 times and on a schedule, they should remember your name or drink…like Cheers.
Prices aren’t that bad, you can get some good deals on drinks and occasionally the food. You have deals throughout the week, ladies night with skinny and well drinks. Wing Wednesdays are great, you can get them half off for 10 wings plus half off on beer flights.
This place has a wide variety of things to do, from pool, darts, and TVs with every sport up on them. There are a few pool tables, 4 I think, I have yet to play but have seen them from the restaurant and they usually seem full. They have 5 dart boards in the bar area but they are never full. The place has TVs throughout the restaurant with a wide variety of sports, and if I was a huge sports fan, I would probably choose to come here over a few other places that offer the same luxury.
Overall a great hangout with friends or even a casual place for a date. Whether you sit in the bar or dining room you’ll have good service and a great atmosphere. Not the greatest place to bring kids but you’ll feel like a kid with all the fun you’ll have. I couldn’t give it the full five due to nothing really stands out above and beyond but they make the effort which is what I appreciate.
