We loved our Igloo lunch at Alter. We had our two young boys with us and it was nice to have our own space to eat and drink, and let them be silly or loud and not be a bother to other diners around us. A very fun experience. The staff is very attentive, the igloo was heated and cozy. I hope the whole "igloo dining" concept stays around even after COVID is no longer an issue.
We dined at 3pm in the afternoon in an igloo. It was very comfortable and the server, Paige, was outstanding. Food was hot and good and I commend Alter for a great idea for those who do not dine in during the pandemic.
Great beer, food, and view of the river. The igloos look fun.
Alter Brewing gave a wonderful opportunity for my family to celebrate an anniversary. The food was incredible and the ambiance was fun and unique from other experiences. We were seated in one of the outdoor igloos which were equipped with daring decor and a way to connect our own music in a private setting. Service was fast and friendly. Highly recommend!
The best place, food, drinks and staff on the planet!
We have had the pleasure of enjoying Alter Brewing a few times and this is my first review. I like to try a few times to make sure enjoyable each time.
And I say Bravo.
I give five stars.
Had only had a drink there previously. Menu limited but struck me as interesting. Sampled pork belly minis. Outstanding. Chicken breast sandwich my girls enjoyed. I had the grilled caprese with just veggies and it was terrific. Wish they had an NA beer but small issue considering the service, the food and atmosphere.
We visited the Alter igloo for my birthday happy hour .. a perfect Covid-safe outing !! Like a little winter wonderland ..
Excellent Brussels sprouts and mini-crab cakes.
Very good wine .. will come back to sample the beer.
Would definitely recommend !
ambiance and location is great. Food was okay with a limited menu. Nice place to sit and converse with friends.
Great Beer! Great Food! in a great safe environment with a very friendly staff!
The outdoor igloos were great. Bluetooth speaker to connect your phone to, light to notify server you need something to reduce the number of times the door opens, heater to keep igloo warm. Service was great and staff friendly.
Beautiful night in an igloo next to the river. Great food & service! I also love that you can sync your phone to the Bluetooth speaker for music. Wonderful experience!
My wife and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary at Alter Brewing. We reserved an igloo and it was amazing. The service was fantastic, the food was amazing. The ambience was perfect, it was a little cool in the igloo. However it was freezing sleet outside. We had a great time and they made it special for us with a champagne toast.
Great food and Beer
Outstanding service and awesome time in the igloo! Love Alter Brewing!
We dined at Alter for New Years Eve. We were able to get an igloo and the service was great! We had a wonderful experience. The staff was excellent and always available. The food and beer were also great! We will definitely be going back! I would highly recommend dining here!
Came here for NYE and ate in the igloo. Paige was wonderful! The igloo was a little cold! But, altogether it was an awesome experience! Maybe more heaters next time! Thanks and we will be back!
Amazing service, amazing beer and amazing food. You have to try the lamb chops!
Dined outside in the igloo and it was an awesome experience! Cozy, fun and a good way of getting out while staying safe.
Really enjoyed the burger and Caprese melt. Tabasco onion straws were outstanding.
We were lucky enough to get one of the outdoor igloos to dine in. It was a perfect snowy night and we enjoyed the ambience of the igloo. We had appetizers which were very good and the beer was delicious! Service was very attentive.
The food was pretty good, beer was delicious. Mixed drinks were meh. The service we received wasn’t great. Our server was rude and very short with us which seemed strange especially since we were in $100 minimum igloo. Unfortunately, we won’t be back for dining because of the service.
Second visit. A lot to like. Food is pretty good. Beer is great. Service was great. Too expensive overall though. Music in the glass room was way too loud (again). Hard to have a conversation. Even the waitress seemed to have a hard time hearing the customers.
Great food and atmosphere!
Only gave the food three stars because we only ordered a few appetizers. The beer cheese fondue pretzels were very good, and the messy fries were okay.
Beer selection was very good...Had a couple Swedda Wedda's and an Orange Hwip.
Definitely coming back after the Holidays
From start to finish: EXCELLENT!!!
Very good experience! Nick was great! Very accommodating.
Love the igloos!!! N
The beer is the star here, food is OK pub food and service pretty good. "Outdoor" dining is really a sunroom with 3 glass sides - not outdoor at all. But they have pods if you can get one.
Have a good set up in regards to safe dining during the restrictions in place. And the beer is real good!!
Great! Gluten free diner present and all were happy.
Very helpful staff. Was willing to meet our requests.
Excellent food, beer and ambience! We’ll definitely be back!
Open. That is key.
Great as usual !
A 10! The server was terrific, and the beer plus plus!
Sunday afternoon lunch on the front patio. Very accommodating, because we wanted to be “socially distant” from another couple, we were given a bigger table.
Glad to see that wait staff all wore masks and respected ours.
I do not understand how an enclosed area on the side patio fulfills the “no inside dining” rules. If all the sides are closed, it may as well be inside dining.
Food was outstanding. Always love the burger of the week. Cheese fondu appetizer is great!
We have been wanting to visit and were lucky to get the last reservation of the day. We sat outside and the service was great - the food was excellent. We will be back!
Great food and brews - cocktails too! Chef Eric and his sous chef served all our courses, nice personal touch.
