Hostess was very warm and polite. Set the stage for an enjoyable evening Waitress and servers were efficient and polite
We ordered from the brunch menu and were very happy with our dishes. Our waitress was very attentive.
Ask for David. He meets your needs.
Happy place and great beer and burgers
Great Valentine’s Day menu options, great fast service. Delicious food.
We usually go to the Ale House on week days. Saturday was not as pleasant as our normal visits to this restaurant. Despite our reservation, we had to wait over 20 minutes for our table. When we were finally seated, we noticed a lot of empty booths. The restaurant had a lot of screaming kids which we have not encountered on previous visits. The service was okay although the waiter brought our check without asking if we wanted dessert.
We dine here frequently and it is always enjoyable. The food is excellent, the service is lovely, and the atmosphere is relaxed. Making a reservation for Friday night dinner is essential!
We had a beer at the bar and then was seated for our meal. Enjoyed a fantastic salad and had great service provided by Chelsea. Will definitely return and highly recommend!
Alehouse Columbia is one of our favorite places to eat. Food, beverages, and service are consistently great. We love that the menu has so many different things to choose from.
Service and food were very good. Prices are reasonable.
Servers forgot we were there. A manager stopped by to say there was confusion or miscommunication between the servers. We still had to wait to get out drinks and order. Once the server arrived no specials or soup of the day were offered. Which doesn’t matter bc we already had about 25 mins to look at the menu. We were able to hear the special of the day when the server spoke with the couple behind us. The server did get my very picky order correctly which I appreciate it. It almost felt like making a reservation was the worst idea for this restaurants. I’m sure the bad service was an isolated incident and does not change our view of The Alehouse Columbia but when date nights are far and few between we hope for what is normally expected out of a restaurant.
Great beer selection and drink list.
Everything was great but I never get my dining points here for some reason. Open table is not working for this location. I have been there 3 times this year and zero credit. Food is great and the service is great.
We came to celebrate a friend's birthday. I had made reservations for 7:45 pm. We still had to wait an additional 10 minutes to get seated. Once we were at the booth, our waitress didn't stop by our table for another 30 minutes. We didn't even get water or anything - she did pop in at one point and said she'd be right over but it took a long time. It was ridiculous because we had been trying to get her attention from the beginning (before the birthday boy arrived) so that she could hide our surprise birthday cake for our friend in their back fridge, and then wanted to ask her to bring it out later.
When she finally arrived, one of my friends still asked her to hide the cake while I distracted the birthday boy. Our meal was nice - fried brussel sprouts were amazing, honey sriacha wings were a little dry but flavor was good, loaded crab chips had little crab but great potato chips, the bruschetta mussels weren't anything special with a tangy sour broth that I didn't like - but our birthday boy enjoyed his steak dinner!
She kept asking when we wanted the cake (blatantly in front of our friend). When it was time to bring it out, she literally brought out the brown paper bag that we had put the cake in. No thought whatsoever to take it out and at least put it on a plate, let alone with a candle in it or something. She didn't even bring plates/ utensils - she asked if we needed some. OF COURSE WE NEED THEM. I mean seriously, how stupid can you be?
Apparently they were closing so she asked us to leave.
Good customer service means everything in a business. We're never coming here again. Next time, don't treat your customers like crap.
Had a nice father-son dinner and good conversation... shared some excellent food... and a nice selection of beer and cider. Just awesome!
Server was very rude, snatched the pen out of my friends hand after we sign our receipts and punctured her hand. Manager did very little to resolve this issue and very upset about this.
The restaurant ran out of glasses, the food was poor quality, and the restaurant was dirty.
We won’t be back and we’re mortified we choose this restaurant for a double date with our friends.
Very busy Saturday nite. Nice menu. Service fast and pleasant.
Large sports bar, but broken up into several area so it doesn’t seem cavernous. Great, personable service and good food - in particular, wonderful mussels.
The recommendation is yes, but with a few caveats. The first visit here had great service & beer, but the food was disappointing. The second visit had very good beer, food was better, but service was terrible - they were not busy. Had to flag down a server who went & found the server for our table. Asked for extra napkins 'cause we ordered wings - never got them. Never got water that was asked for twice.
Go for the beer. Keep expectations low on food. You'll be set.
One of our regular dinner spots. Service and food quality are above-average. Great beer selection.
We were sat by the second bar where they seemed to be seating families with young kids. That is fine, but the TV color was off and our waitress was less than energetic. It didn't really feel like we were in the same restaurant as everyone else as this section was very secluded. It was cold as well. The food and drinks were just ok. We have been here before with a much better experience so hopefully this was just an isolated thing.
Never been there before. Loved it and was very pleased that they had a brunch menu on the weekend as well as a Bloody Mary bar. Will definitely go back!
I like their beer selection and menu options!
Awesome beers! Love that they have flights! Service was great as well.
Lovely New Year’s Day brunch
Four of us went to Ale House for dinner on New Year's Eve. I hadn't noticed any specials online for that evening, but there was a short New Year's Eve menu in addition to the regular menu. The New Year's Eve menu included rockfish topped with crab imperial along with a couple side dishes for $24. Two of us ordered the rockfish and enjoyed it very much. The other two ordered from the regular menu and were also happy with their meals.
It was Christmas Eve, the staff was super friendly and the food we ordered was great!
Took the family for an early dinner, the food is good and the service was even better. Great selection of beers on the menu, my kids and wife all enjoyed.
The 3 of us had a nice dinner before the busy family get together at home. My Seafood Fra Diavalo was very good...lots of lobster meat and 5 mussels. The others enjoyed their Crab Cake Sandwiches which came with fries. We finished off by sharing a Smith Island chocolate cake. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Lots of free parking.
Nice place good beer food is good too
