A fellow cruiser whom I met online via Facebook, strongly suggested Carolina Ale House. Within walking distance of our hotel, we ventured out to enjoy the Miami evening in full splendor! The warmth drew us directly to our destination. We quickly found out that the place was JUMPIN' Friday evening. Seating was fast. Beverage service was fast for 3 of us, but our 4th had to exit to call the kids back home. When he came back, we tried to get the attention of servers, but our window of opportunity had closed. Our server was replaced and our new server took our food order and our 4th persons drink order. The food and drink was fabulous. Since it was Friday evening, it was very crowded and very loud. I really like that atmosphere, but I'm only speaking for half of our group. The other half did not. All in all, I would go again and again.
