We always enjoy eating here. Really great service, nice atmosphere, and the menu is expansive. Homemade chips, large portions. All the waiters and waitresses are attentive and pleasant.

We stopped into Ace's unplanned for dinner and were very pleased with our meals and the service. The portions are huge and very tasty.

stopped in for early dinner. Good selection on menu and great specials. All at good prices. Food arrived quickly, hot and presented very well. Waitress was outstanding. No complaints and would go there again. This was early April, so the area was quiet compared to later in the summer season.

We are locals and have been here several times. The quality is inconsistent and sometimes not adequate. They have 2 specialty nights; Pasta night and stir fry Friday. These are ok, but not unlimited, and not all that cheap. The happy hour appetizers are good, and drinks reasonable, but not cheap. Recently they added food truck Tuesdays. We haven't tried... More

Party of 11 with 4 kids. The decor was wonderfully updated and both the food and service were great. Our server was very attentive. We were there for dinner but had we been there during the day I am sure the lake views would have been wonderful! Highly recommended!!

Beautifully appointed dining room overlooking the water. Varied menus specializing in sliders on Tuesday, unlimited pasta cooked to order in front of patrons, veggie night, etc. Approach through a bar that echos the cozy comfort of English pubs.

We chose Aces when we discovered the restaurant we had a gift card to was closed. We had a wonderful meal. The restaurant was beautiful and the service was great. We will definitely return here.
