Food was good. Don't understand why they bring the soup and sandwich at the same time
The soup should come first

The restaurant is light filled and pretty. However the food was not good. One person in my party asked for an appetizer , it was burnt. Another person asked for a burger medium rare, that too was burnt. The dinner salad had barely any lettuce . This was not the first time that salad had barely any lettuce. That is a lot of money to spend on basically appetizer portion. If we had received food that was cooked well and was what ordered then I would not mind paying what we spent. However, I am was very disappointed with the food for the third time trying the restaurant. I would have a drink at the bar. That’s what I would recommend .

This restaurant was very good although I thought the portions on some meals could have been a little better. There was a sliced steak on the menu and it was a few pieces on top of sliced bread. For the amount we paid for the dish, that should have been a nice chunk of steak and was disappointed.

Our waiter did a great job. We were a large party (8) and he went above and beyond to make sure everyone was satisfied. It was also Mother's Day and he made sure to wish our mother's a happy day. Overall he made the experience great.

We have been to Robinson's a number of times for lunch, dinner and also for just a drink and a snack. This particular visit was for Mother's Day. Everything about our visit was outstanding. Our waiter (Joe) was a wonderful host and provided great service. The food was all done to perfection and everyone's order was captured accurately. We love coming to Robinson's and we can easily recommend this establishment - our favorite of all the local McLoone offerings. Come to Robinson's and you will not be disappointed.

This was a fun place to go to with an
exceptionally good manager Dylan. Our reservation was
delayed by 20 minutes and Dylan wisely bought us a round of drinks and couldn’t have been nicer. We got a great Table and the waitress Debbie was exceptional and the food delicious. Definitely I will go back there again.

My wife and their about 6. We got a table in the Bar Area. Kasey on server greeter us. We ordered two drinks, a appetizer and two burgers. Drinks came out in a timely manner and so did our appetizer but our burgers took 45 minutes to come out. We look around the bar and everyone is getting their food. Kasey is no where to be seen accept in the corner talking with other staff. I had to flag her down to asked what's going on and she said their was a emergency in the kitchen with an order. Then I said everyone else is getting their food. At that point she should of got a manager. Then said actually told us that she didn't our ordered in till after we finished our appetizer, which was the Cheese Steak Spring Rolls. Besides what happen when my wife and I finally got our burgers they were outstanding.

In looking for something that had more than a couple of limited gluten free options for my Dad, I came across the Robinson Ale House.
The service was exceptional, our server was welcoming, very knowledgeable about food options & answered all questions quickly.
Our food - Cheeseburger on Gluten Free Roll, Shepards Pie and Grilled Chicken Cobb Salad were delicious and cooked perfectly.
Desserts - were so/so. Rice Pudding was a bit too sweet, the brownie was very good, the chocolate chip cookie in skillet with ice cream was fair, the cookie could have been warmed a bit longer to give it the "right out of the oven" taste.
Would go back again & recommend for the meals

I have been here many times but this night the kitchen was just off. I ordered the Ale house burger "well done" but it came out red in the middle. Also, the french fries were not hot so I imagined that they are cooking them in larger batches and letting them sit around until needed. Same for the onion rings on top; those might have been cooked at lunchtime and were just waiting to be served to us at dinner. The dessert was a miss at is was not very warm (warm cookie with ice cream). We had the pretzel sticks appetizer and that was great as well as the mac N cheese. I will return as I have been here many times but last night was a real disappointment. Service was good as always.

We went on a late Saturday afternoon around 4:30, after seeing a movie around the corner. The place was pretty busy but we were seated right away (we had a reservation for 2 guests). Great fried zucchini appetizer, crispy not greasy. Absolutely delish burgers and fries. I ordered a burger with portobellos and Brie; fantastic!! Very interesting cocktails and attentive wait service made the visit very pleasant!
