The Saint John Ale House offers progressive pub food in a casual, relaxed dining room, in our pub and on our waterfront patio during the summer. We take pride in knowing where our food comes from and use locally grown and seasonal produce, meats and fish from New Brunswick farmers in many of our menu items and daily specials.

We offer the largest selection of beer in Saint John, including several local craft beers such as Moosehead Cask Ale made exclusively for the SJAH. We have an extensive wine list and also serve creative cocktails hand-made by our mixologist.

Join us for a few drinks in the pub, or dine in our restaurant. If you're interested in an all around fun night out in Saint John - we look forward to hosting you!

Sorry we do not accept reservations in the pub or on the patio.

Pub Club, fries and beer were perfect. Service was friendly and fast. Perfect spot for lunch, dinner, or multiple drinks.

Had a lovely date night out with my husband. Service was quick and the meal was delicious.

My wife’s steak was excellent but my burger was really dry, I couldn’t finish it. I didn’t realize the Ale House asks for how you want your burger cooked so I said “cooked” well done. But either way it was really dry. Our server was great, she recommended a great beer! Overall not bad, but not my favorite meal or restaurant.

A really nice touch is that the management listened to my pre-booking request about it being my partner’s birthday and brought out a cake with a candle in it for her. No singing or embarrassment, just a nice touch.

Really appreciated that, plus it was really good food, good value and excellent service. All round highly recommended, I will definitely return next time I’m in town.

My friend was a vegetarian and was having a hard time finding something that she could have. I hadn't really noticed this issue until she pointed out that the only thing she can really have is the Kettle Chips with no bacon. This surprised me as a lot of restaurants now cater to vegetarian's and vegan's and based on the Ale House's high-end reputation you would think there would be plenty of neat dishes that don't involve meat.

Outstanding service from our waiter Andrew. Food was awesome and his recommendations and knowledge of the food was bang on. Will be going back again for sure!

Great table at the window but felt rushed. Was told another reservation was waiting half way through the meal.
