Got a rare seat outside on the deck which was really nice. The only issue is the service was painfully slow. I know it was a Saturday, early evening l,... More

The ale house has a great menu, with options for just about anyone. I an not a fan of most of the crafted beers, but they have a great selection of guest beers so all is good on that front. You have to try the Duck grilled cheese, it is fabulous.

Went to lunch here last week and enjoyed it once again! They have a brewery on site and served their beer plus they have a full bar. We tried the beer sampler plus other drinks and enjoyed them all. They offer daily specials for lunch plus their regular menu of salads, sandwiches , and entrees. Loved the burrata (mozzarella cheese),... More

This was the first time we ate her for Saturday evening dining. The cook staff just couldn't get it together. From cold chilli that it took three times returned before it was hot to brown lettuce with the lobster roll to greasy clumps of whole clams which where not warm. There was no evidence of oversight of the staff. The... More

Dined here with friends and totally enjoyed our meals. Scallops were awesome, the potato salad that came with them was out of this world. Craft beers were great also. It was Italian night and the wife loved her Italian dish. Will be back for sure when in the area.

Great atmosphere. Love the Christmas lights draped across the ceilings. Fast service. Good food. There was a wait both nights. You can call ahead and put your name down on the list although it's not technically a reservation. Friday night we called 10 minutes ahead and waited about five minutes. Saturday we totally forgot and waited about 20 minutes. Not... More

Went here to meet with a customer for lunch, and was very pleasantly surprised by this restaurant, I did not have any of the beers, so I can't speak for their quality. But the food and the service were both outstanding - our waitress gently kidded with our table, which was a refreshing change of pace. Their burgers are wonderful,... More

Busy place, so it is good! Always hopping and food extremely good to eat. Not a drinker so can't comment on the ale.
