Great beer selection. Decent menu, but we thought the prices were just a tab bit steep. Still, we would definitely return.

I dine here for the vegan menu and always bring my non-vegan friends and they are amazed at how delicious the food is. This is my favorite spot to get vegan food. It is my husband's favorite spot for beer. The service is always, always fantastic!

I think the food was a little underwhelming, especially for the price, but other than that, it was timely and I had no complaints about the service. I’d recommend this place for drinks and for the milkshakes, but not so much for food.

Drinks were expensive and not great. Food was greasy and I was sick all night and the next day. Needless to say I won't be back. Sad too. It has potential but the food, drinks and service were all poor.

This place came highly recommended, and yet, I was so let down by the food. The beer selection is consistent with what I would expect to see in Royal Oak. My server was extremely attentive and brought everything from my beers to the app to my main ASAP considering it was a Saturday evening. What really tanks this review, is the food. Where do I start?

-The cheese curds I ordered were very bland. I mean I know, cheese curds don't have much to them to begin with, but these didn't have any flavor to them whatsoever. They served the curds with what they claimed to be a "smoked tomato compote", which in actuality was more akin to a cold marinara sauce, no smoke to it whatsoever. A small handful of curds set me back 10.50.

-I was looking forward to the chicken and waffles that I ordered, as they touted their "secret, spicy" fried chicken on their menu. What I received was just plain sad. I got 3 of the smallest chicken tenders....tenders! Not even actual pieces of chicken like you'd get in a respectable place...but 3 anemic looking tenders with yet another flavorless breading, paired with a waffle which I am convinced was made simply from flour, water, and very little else. They ask that you part with 15.95 for this atrocity. I tell ya, if someone had come by and asked me how I was finding my meal, I'd have let 'em know right then and there, yet management was a bit busy trying to wrangle all the people who were coming into the establishment and just sitting where ever they pleased, masks off and all. I was asked if I wanted dessert, and well, after all that, I think I had had enough. I paid my bill, and went next door to Astoria Bakeshop where I was convinced I'd be able to get some dessert that had a bit of personality to it. That kind of food may pass muster for your standard Royal Oak diner, but I know I won't be going back anytime soon.

Went out with bae for dinner. I love this place! The amount of vegan options is mind blowing 💕💕 ! The seating is a little awkward with the long bench but it’s enough room in between seats. Food is sooooo good! The Nashville chkn sandwich is delicious 😋

The restaurant has a great selection of beers, ciders and ales on tap. Also great assortment of cocktails. I went there only to be stood up on a date. Matthew, my waiter, saw this and was very accommodating. I highly recommend this restaurant due to the food and good vibes and very professional staff.

The server (Carmen) was great and the drink that I got was very good! However, the past 2 times that I have gotten food here it’s just been bland. The menu is fun and the food isn’t necessarily bad. It’s just not seasoned. They accommodated me for disliking my food and they were cool about it. I’ll be back again for drinks, just maybe won’t get food again.

Made a reservation here on open table... got to Ale Mary's, they said it was made for 2, I said no, its for 4. They took good care of us. Food and service were a 10 out of 10. Short, metered pours on liqour... order a double. We'll be back.

Service was a little slow but not horrible by any means. Great food and drink options. Nashville hot chicken was amazing, the Mediterranean bowl was very bland and small portion. We will be back again to try other items that sounded great on the menu.

Our favorite thing to eat was the warm pretzels and beer cheese dip, but something has changed. The pretzels were not the same (had less of that "pretzel" flavor, and the cheese dip had a weird texture - almost lumpy as opposed to smooth and creamy as it was in the past.

Our other stand by - the Brussels sprouts were also different - not as crispy as they once were. I'll admit it has been a while since we've been here, but we were disappointed in the food a bit.

Covid seating arrangement is terrible - too small of a place to allow for true 6 feet distance, and the tables are all high tops, except 2 groupings at a long table. Oh yeah, two sets of 2 seats at the bar.

The high tops are also in the hallway to the bathrooms and kitchen. Not very comfortable.

With such so few patrons allowed, I still waited 20 minutes for someone to wait on me. Claimed it was a "shift change" screw up

First and last visit. I had such high hopes for a great named place.

I love Ale Mary’s because it has both a vegan and non-vegan menu, with a variety of delicious food options! It’s really the perfect place to go if you and your party all have a taste for something different. Also, the staff is always very nice. I had Nate as my server during my most recent visit and he was very attentive and accommodating, which I super appreciate! Ale Mary’s is definitely one of my favorite places to eat.

We always love coming to this place because they have a great selection of food, cocktails, and beer. I am vegan and my husband is a meat eater so we love the variety and we love that we can go somewhere together and both eat and be satisfied!
