The Ale House, in Grand Junction, is a local favorite for delicious modern American fare enhanced with global influence served in its lively and rustic restaurant. The creamy artichoke dip served with veggies and toasted baguette and the sausage and cheese board served with preserves and mustard make tasty and sharable starters. Some of The Ale House's specialty entrées include the achiote-marinated shrimp tacos with pico de gallo and lime crema, the elf meatloaf in an apple demi-glace and the Applewood bacon mac and cheese with garlic panko crust, all of which are superb with a craft beer or two. Handhelds, like the hand-tossed avalanche ale pizza topped with chicken, ale alfredo sauce, pesto, garlic and goat cheese and the shaved steak dip sandwich with smoked mozzarella and rosemary jus, are also popular.
For a sweet end to your meal, enjoy The Ale House's cast iron apple crumble.
We were on the road and I'd used Open Table to reserve a lunch as we drove across Colorado on the way to California. My wife's sandwich was the best she has had since Scholtzky's closed. We dined outside, and there was a little traffic noise, but the weather was perfect.
I've seen a number of strong reviews for the Ale House, they were so good I tried it last Friday night. I was disappointed, largely in our service was very slow and unattentive, and two orders of the highly touted Mahi Mahi tacos arrived heavily dried out, obviously left under heat lamps too long. The restaurant wasn't that busy, lots of open tables, yet our service was extremely lacking.
Great place to relax and enjoy good food, drinks, and friends. The Chef's pizza is huge and great! We're going back to get more.
We had a group of eight...sat outdoors on a beautiful evening...everyone commented on how good the food was. My mahi mahi tacos were excellent as was my margarita. Our waiter was there when we needed him but not overbearing. The Ale House never disappoints!
I wish the menu would not change so much (and so frequently). The 50-50 burger was a family favorite. I asked the waitress about it and she told me about the scallop special. ????
We were in town for one night only and wanted an energetic place for dinner. This brewery delivered, great atmosphere, superb service, and amazing food.
A ++ for my vantage point
Great place to go to! I have been there many times, and I will definitely return. I will recommend this place to everyone!
We went for Valentines Brunch due to a friends recommendation. We ordered the eggs over medium and they were barely cooked. The biscuit came without butter, when we asked for butter it came out hard and the biscuit was cold so that was left uneaten. The friend who recommended the brunch especially the chicken fried steak said he went again and the food was not as good as he had had previously.
Nice place our service was good as well as our entrees. Only negative was hostess seemed bored and not happy.
We had visitors in from out-of-town and wanted them to experience something uniquely Grand Junction and not just one of the many chain restaurants....everyone had wonderful meals, drinks and brews!
