We were on a family road trip last week and rolled into this place at about 10 pm on a Tuesday. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and the beer & wine selection were great. Great prices too!

The restaurant was cooking for a Friday night. The acoustics of the room are old school and the noise level was not meant for conversation. The beer menu was varied and the brews good . Typical bar food. Check it out.

The food was a little more upscale than we expected for a pub (which was nice), and there were more casual offerings like burgers as well. Quick and friendly service, and a nice selection of craft beer.

We went for lunch today and the Ale House never disappoints! We sat at the bar and Dustin, the bartender, was very helpful - letting us taste several of the different craft beers on tap and explaining the differences between styles of beers. He's very...More
