Interesting brunch menu but kind of pricey. I tried the Greek yogurt and it had some lovely fresh fruit. Hubby tried the avacado toast and enjoyed it. Not many customers when we were there but service was slow.

We came here for brunch and were expecting a nice meal, but we were disappointed with the portion sizes of the meals. The Ale House is expensive for the amount of food you get. Not sure that we would return to the Ale House again.

We were delighted with a pineapple cider (who knew?!) on draft! The spinach artichoke dip was yummy and we’re definitely coming back for the salmon burgers. Chelsea took great care of us, too!

Even though there are items on their menu labeled "gluten friendly" barely anything except mussels and some tacos are celiac friendly. This was extremely disappointing. The waitress did a great job running back and forth to the kitchen to check with the kitchen staff about...More
