    Wow. Really impressed with this place. Place reminds me of a yard house. Sporty place. We were originally here for restaurant week but instead decided to order off the regular menu. Their tavern burger was delish! Everything about it, but especially the pork belly! Def recommend! Hubby got the pork chop which was also really good. I was in love with the spinach that came on the side! Finished the evening with creme brulee and apple pie. Would come here again.

    We hadn’t been to The Ale House in years, and I have to say I love the changes they made! The restaurants is much more open, and the ambiance was warm and inviting. The food and drinks were delicious, and the service was wonderful. Can’t wait to go back!

    I now consider myself a regular as this is our go-to for a quick, consistent dinner experience. We arrived, was settled quickly and service began immediately. Food was quick to arrive, however, my wife’s food was not cooked to her requested temperature. The manger, quickly corrected the problem and resolved it to our satisfaction. My good was cooked as ordered and was tasty and satisfying. We will return. Service was good and very attentive. The staff was courteous and friendly as always.

    We went to The Alehouse for the first time to watch the US world cup game. I was pleasantly surprised by how they handled the rush. Our server was friendly and gave us everything that we asked. The food came out quickly, was delicious and hot. We definitely plan to go back! A great draft list and bottomless mimosa bar are definitely a plus for us!

    Not much attention from the waiter. Ordered a drink and they did not have all of the ingredients to make it. Instead of telling me they just made it with all of the other ingredients and thought that would be ok. Blackened chicken pasta was greasy.

    The ale house experience was in a word fine. And the food wise tasty although my friend said her, Korean BBQ tacos were too spicy for her as it had jalapeños in it, which was not expected. The beer was excellent. I truly enjoyed my milk stout and I knew I would. Unfortunately I ordered a 16 ounce they brought me a 12 ounce. My friend ordered a 5 ounce to taste her beer and they brought her a 12 ounce. We both made note of it to the waitress but it was no big deal. When the bill came, they had rung in a growler price for her beer which would’ve been $15 and a 16 ounce from my beer which was only a dollar more. They did a great job of fixing the small service pieces, and even we rung our beers both for the 5 ounce price which was unexpected and nice. All in all, I will definitely return to the ale house - the food is decent and varied, and the beer is fantastic!

    Just wanted a nice evening out where we could sit outside and enjoy the weather while eating good food. Our server gave us lots of time to enjoy the meal at our pace. There was no push to get us out. I really appreciate that. As always, the pretzels appetizer doesn’t disappoint and I love the sliders. They do really good salads with generous portions. All in all, just the kind of night out we were looking for. Thanks

    Went for brunch / game day. Very busy on game day. Energetic atmosphere. It’s not to loud that your not able to speak amongst yourselves at the table. Food was fine. I had a burger and fries. I like the idea we’re your able to try different juices with your mimosa and bottomless is always a plus. Nice local brunch spot. I would return.

    Renovating & going to be lovely! Staff was very accommodating as we were having a business meeting and so put us in an area that was quieter. Food was good as always! Looking forward to their re-opening on October 6th and the new menu! Make sure you tell them Happy 10th Anniversary!
