Had lunch here recently and really enjoyed it. The $8 beer flights featuring 4 tastings of Oliver Brewing Company brews are a great value. The chipotle wings were dynamite...those alone will bring me back. Also had their Cuban sandwich which was also spot-on. The only...More

This is nice place to meet friends. They have a very large beer selection with many of their own brews. The appetizers are good and were discounted during happy hour. We had entrees which were also good but could have easily made a meal out...More

We use to frequent this place, but last couple of times it wasn't great. The food is acceptable, the menu diverse and the staff attentive. On our last visit for lunch I ordered the Bacon and Blue Chips and the Ale House Burger. The bacon...More

If you like large beer selections and good food, this is the place for you. Try their Ale house burger if you like blue cheese and bacon. If you don't like it loud, don't come to the bar or even some of the indoor seating...More
