We were seated in the bar area and the noise level was elevated compared to that of the adjoining room. Service staff had numerous plate and utensil drops adding to the elevated noise level and brings into question whether it also occurs in the kitchen with the meal prep! Portion sizes were abundant making it a good value for the prices charged. The meals all tasted wonderful.

First time here and everything was wonderful. The noise level wasn’t near as loud as some have written in previous reviews. This was definitely a concern with me having issues with background noise. I highly recommend and a return visit is a definite. Anthony actually walked out to check on our experience as we exited the building.

The service, drinks - especially made by the bartender Tara, and the food were all excellent. The only down side is that you pretty much have to yell at each other to be heard. Still absolutely worth a visit or takeout!

We eat at 59 Almshouse regularly and it never disappoints. We have tried many items on the menu - calamari, salads, ribs, fajitas, poke bowl, jambalaya, burgers, etc. All good. Love the porch area both for the ambience and for the reduced noise level. The other rooms are very noisy. I like that the owner/manager? comes around and checks with the tables. Great place!

We came for a little celebration. Carol had been our server previously and we like her a lot. The food was great and we both took some home for later. Carol's service was just right! We like 59 Almshouse.

I have had bad experiences with service twice and I am done trying to go there. The food is good but the service tends to be VERY slow. One time I was there for lunch and again this time for dinner. Dinner for 5 people took 2 hours.... not because we were having a leisurely dinner. People all around us were stressed and upset about the slow service, too.

Saturday night was busy, we sat at the bar and felt that we waited a while before being recognized. Then we noticed no one picked up finished plates , one couple sent their dinner back and not even a sorry at the time or before they left , nothing said or comped they were not happy. So we ordered our dinners and waited 50 mins until they arrived. We were pleasantly surprised how good it was. We had a nice time.

I really like Almshouse 59. We sit at the bar and eat and enjoy the ambience. However it took them too long to run the food to the bar and we got it at room temp. The only negative thing i have to say.

The food was really good, came out quickly. Dinner arrived just as apps were done. They were busy and our waitress clearly had more tables in the other area so we didn't see her as much, but she came by several times and made sure we had everything we needed. Food was all perfectly cooked and well plated.

In all fairness we didn't stay long enough to eat so rating the food or service would be unfair. The noise level was off the charts. We could hardly hear our waitress asking for our drink order. We did have a drink and left without ordering. Not much they could do...a lot of children which added to the issue.

This place is an amazing value with a remarkably diverse menu. The portions astounded us, especially considering the affordable pricing. And the service of all, led by our server Carol, gives this a very welcoming environment to us diners. We had a delicious lunch with ample leftovers to take home. We look forward to a return visit for dinner, soon!
