It was my son’s birthday, and we had a festive experience. We had a great waiter and enjoyed our burgers.

Always a pleasure to have a casual diner at Emma’s Ale House. The food is really good, well cooked (as we asked for) .
I would like to mention also, compare to other restaurants, Emma’s has a low noise level which is really appreciated.

Got together with college friends from 30 years ago and had a great time. Everyone loved the place, food and atmosphere. Food prices are fair and drinks are a little expensive but they need to make up for the pandemic. Sorry if it was a little loud as it was probably our table having a lot of fun.

We always find the service to be so welcoming, start to finish. Tonight was a burger night. We skipped the buns to allow more room for pretzel sticks and French fries 😊 And our starter of yummy brussel sprouts ensured out meal was balanced.

Good selection of draft beers though the draft system was not available the night we were there. The fish in the fish and chips was lightly fried and crisp, however i doubt it was cod. The texture was more flounder. also expensive at $27. ribs were excellent. Prices were on the high side for an Ale house.

Bruce our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive to our table. His enthusiasm for the menu and cuisine recommendations were excellent. We loved the chicken special meal and will definitely be returning to Emma’s Ale House in the near future.

Hi we have been coming for years and I know they were closed for a while but they had a few issues. Apparently they had lost power at some point so they had no draft beers and had also run out of the bottled beer we chose. Our bill was closed early and was inaccurate and we had to specifically ask for a new printed bill after the waiter tried to use a calculator app on his phone to adjust it. Worst of all, the busboy spilled a full dish of mustard on my son and me and was a bit rushed about providing clean up, plus he didn’t tell the waiter or manager. We didn’t feel like making a big stink about it but proper training would have meant notifying the manager so he could come over to apologize. The food was fine as usual but we won’t be rushing back soon.
