The Robinson Ale House
Our first time here was for Valentine’s Day . And our waitress was very nice and helpful with suggestions . The food was amazing and we will definitely be back again .
Took clients from London to dinner. Everyone enjoyed their meal.
I made an 8:15 reservation for 6 people. We waiting close to an hour and were told that tables were in the process of finishing up. Two of our party went elsewhere and the four who remained grabbed a high-top table in the bar area, rather than continue to wait any longer. Of course, once we received our first drink at the high-top, our table became available, but we declined to move and ate in the bar. As a result, our meal was noisy, rushed and in general not a good experience. When I made the reservation through Open Table I took the 8:15 since it was the latest that was listed. I never dreamed we would wait one hour WITH a reservation. As a result, I and one of my friends, split and appetizer and some soup because it was WAY too late to eat a larger meal. It was a shame. I've eaten here before and have been happy.
Good food. Comfortable seating . Good service. But pricey
We had reserved a Saturday lunch reservation for my MIL's birthday and thank goodness we did - it was really busy! The check-in process was very easy and totally understand the policy of not sitting the party until everyone arrives. My husband and I had a pre-lunch drink and the bar service was excellent. Once we sat down, our waitress was also top-notch - she was knowledgeable, courteous and friendly. We had the guacamole and tuna apps - they were delicious. All of our lunch entrees were excellent. Overall, we had a great time and we will definitely come back here for lunch and/or dinner again. Kudos to all the staff here!
Their Harvest Turkey sandwich is so delicious, you can't miss it. I lunched with a friend and our server didn't rush us at all. In spring there is outdoor seating which gets occupied really fast. It's a good, casual spot for lunch or dinner.
Love this place! Food is always so good & they make great drinks!
It's a great little spot with fantastic appetizers. The food was tasty but a little overdone however the atmosphere can't be beat. It's a very secluded spot and you'll enjoy it very much.
There is a large selection of beers to drink and a great sampler platter for the beers. I would definitely go back again.
The service was Top-notch. Our server constantly came back to us checking to see how we were.
Overall you really can't beat it for the price you pay. It was a quiet spot and I'll definitely go back again
Wonderful food, service was excellent. We did have to wait about 20-25min for our table even though we booked through here. But overall great experience. Ordered 2 drinks, 2 entrees, and a dessert. All under $100!
Everything was on point from the seating, to the service, to the food. I recommend the meatloaf for some good comfort food. Pork chop is always good. Caesar salad is a good starter. Deviled eggs are a little heavy on the mayo and not recommended.
we were in a pinch for dinner before a show at a local theater. Rolled the dice and we were very pleasantly surprised - great food, service and prompt delivery of courses! Looking forward to going back!
The food was better than I expected. Try the Beer Braised Short Ribs. The server couldn't have been sweeter.
I live in NYC and my family lives outside of AC. We always meet at the Robinson Ale House for special occasions! We love it!
Wonderful food and service. Best cheesecake!
My husband and I stop by whenever we are passing through town. Robinson’s Al House does not disappoint.
It was my 60th birthday and we chose to go to Robinsons because we always have a good meal with good service and everyone can get ‘what they are in the mood for’. Unfortunately last night our server put a little damper on the party. He gave us the feeling that he wanted to be somewhere else rather than waiting on us. He never followed up after we received our apps and our meals. Several people in our party had no drinks during dinner. He threw the dessert menu on our table as he past by even though we were still eating. He forgot one of our desserts and made no apologies. There were only 7 of us so it was not an overwhelming group. We will be back but honestly felt a little cheated on my big day.
Amazing place great food awesome drinks. Definitely recommending to friends and will be back
We had a delightful meal at the Ale house made extra special by the excellent service from Rich and the auxiliary staff!! Varied choices at different price points will also make this a frequent choice by my husband and myself.
Good menu, service is always the highlight, the hostess and seating process is always a challenge. Once you get seated, it is always a good experience. Meatloaf, ribs, burgers, and pork chops are all very good. If they can clean up their seating process, this place would be much better. Even with a reservation, we have waited 20 mins before. They also won’t seat you until every one from your party has arrived which is a complete turnoff. Your mileage may vary...
Cool spot. Food and service were okay for value.
Food good. Very crowded, felt rushed because people were waiting
first time at Robinson Ale House and it was great. Love the booths, reminds me of old Hollywood. The food was spectacular. Big portions. Will definitely return.
Great atmosphere; creative lighting decor; great service; unique menu items
The issue we had was right as we arrived. We were told our table was ‘getting set up’ and we’d be seated soon. We were a few minutes early for our reservation. At that point people waiting had to deal with a very drunk man until the manager finally asked him to leave. Then we waited and I finally had to go back up to the hostess. She said,”I was just going to text you,” and she proceeded to seat us at a table that was empty the entire time we waited. Why make a reservation when you still have to wait at least 10-20 minutes after your reservation time to be seated? Just a poor first impression. There is quite a choice of decent restaurants in the area so the next time we are there, we’ll choose differently.
Food and atmosphere were very nice. Nice wine and drink menu. Will go back.
Great as always
Robinson's Ale House offers delicious food along with great service. Definitely worth a visit.
Nice time before a show. Would recommend. Good options of entrees for all types of preferences.
Initially they could not find our reservation but were very accommodating and we were seated in spite of that. The manager did stop by shortly after we were seated to let me know that she found our reservation, she was very nice. Our waitress was awful, she lacked personality and was borderline rude - not outright rude but did not make us feel welcomed at all. Perhaps she didn't want to be working on NYE but not our problem. Food was mediocre. I will stick to burgers and beer at the bar or high-top area if I return, I do like the atmosphere.
The parmesan pretzel sticks came with beer cheese dip that was just this side of cheez whiz. Did not expect that. The deviled eggs lacked flavor. Otherwise a nice night out. White Street Cosmo was great.
Everything was good as usual. Only one minor issue for me and that was with the Chicken and Fig flat bread. I didn't taste much fig if any. Other than that, everything was great.
Wonderful lunch . Everything was delicious and the service was fantastic.
Excellent service, the food was spot on which was ordered from a menu that has many fine offerings.
Great casual spot for dinner. Staff is very friendly and food is prepared well. Great selection of craft beers.
Food was good with exception of my entree, the Barbecued Ribs, which I couldn’t eat as sauce was way too spicy. The manager didn’t charge us for my entree which we appreciated after he asked us how everything was with our meal. Our waiter was very good and we liked the ambiance of the restaurant. Will definitely come back again to try some other things.
Great food And service. Had the French onion soup and a burger and they were both delicious. Cool atmosphere and nice menu.
Went here for Christmas Eve and had a wonderful dinner with family.
Reserved table for 6 was ready on a busy Christmas Eve. Food was excellent. Only hiccup was serving main courses literally 1 minute after salads. Entrees were taken back and re-served after salads were finished. Food was still hot and delicious. Waitress was extremely attentive after this minor faux pas. Overall, just a small bump in the road on an otherwise excellent visit.
Everything from start to finish was absolutely fantastic!!
Overall, we enjoyed ourselves! We got two different burgers, the chi town and La La and they were good. We also got the wings that were yummy. I had a spiced pear mule that was very good. Loved the selection of cocktails! The service was ok.. the waiter didn’t seem like he wanted to be there and wasn’t super friendly but whatever, I’ll deal with that for good food!
