Dining area was freezing. We had to keep our coats on while we ate and the whole time we were there. Other than that everything was great.

Took us 25 minutes to get our table even though we had reservations. The whole process seems rushed.

As always, the food and service were spectacular. They were even good about my making a reservation there for Thanksgiving.

Food was good and service was great.

Air conditioner was blowing cold air on our table so we all had our jackets on during dinner.

Also when almost every table needs there phone to read the menu you might want to turn up the lights just a little.

This was my first visit to Robinson ale house...it looked great on their website., and being a visitor to the area, I needed a nice place before seeing a show at the count basie theater. The menu is high end pub food...the beer menu is amazing, the atmosphere is dark, casual, with background music at a low, talking level. Our server paced the meal perfectly. I suggest reservations...it filled up quickly for pre theater seating. It's a 10 minute walk from count basie...easily done in nice weather...we had a cold night so lyft got us there in under 4 minutes

The main dining room was too dark to read the menu (or see the food). Although burgers are supposed to be their specialty, the three of us were disappointed in our burgers ... the two ordered medium rare were rare - the medium was even rarer. French Fries were not fresh - the texture hinted that they were sitting under a heat lamp (it was a slow Monday night). I noted in the reservation that this was a birthday dinner (for our daughter) - no one said a congratulatory word. Given the legacy of restaurants in the McCloone family, we expected far better.

We had brunch at The Robinson Ale House and it was very good. Not many menu choices but just enough to satisfy the 4 of us. Waiter was attentive and the food was good. We are never disappointed there for any meal - day or night. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Sat outside on Saturday, it was beautiful and the food was delicious. Not crazy where we sat because the servers kept squeezing by our table to go in and out the side door. Our server seemed a little flustered but she was super nice. Can’t wait to go back.

Food is quite good and service is excellent. A bit louder than usual. We had six people at one booth and could hardly hear conversation from the far end of the booth. Been there at least 6 times and and has always been a pleasant experience.

went for a quick Sunday lunch - flatbread pizza was great, good burgers. service was really great , attentive. Accidentally put an extra $50 bill in when paying the check . Waiter brought it to my attention and returned it . Honestly, i wouldn't have know what i did with it when i realized it was gone - would have thought i dropped it somewhere or just lost track . Cheers to Robinson Ale House for hiring good people .

Had a wonderful luncheon with Aunts. The service was attentive and allowed us plenty of time to chat and catch up. Food was abundant, took half of sandwich home. Fresh Turkey and tomatoes. Loved the half-moon booth where you can sit close yet comfortable. Would certainly return

Excellent salads with well prepared chicken or salmon added. Nice atmosphere and efficient (if not slightly brusque) service made for an enjoyable lunch where we were able to talk to each other and be heard. Our first experience here. Will definitely return.

Nice all around. Friendly service, good menu selections, fair prices.
Ordered the short ribs and the mahi mahi and both were tasty. Calamari came with 2 sauces.
Wine glasses were reasonable but we should have ordered a bottle.

We were four college classmates, having lunch together for the first time in many years. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly, and even took pictures of us with our phones when we asked . We weren't rushed, and everyone agreed it was a great place to meet. One of the group is gluten free, so those options were very important to us.

The main course was brought out before we were finished with our apps! The waitress wasn’t too attentive and we had to keep asking for drink refills. Felt very rushed and they weren’t even busy
