Defintely tastes better than the exterior of the bar looks. But don't judge a book by its cover. Very good food and service. Had wings -they're delicious! And, a cheeseburger, which was juicy, and good, but needed a little more flavor. Great stop if headed...More

Curbside looks are deceiving. The food is wonderful,delicious. The chef must have work in a top-notch restaurant before because the special's menu is anything but pub. Yet the wings are OUTSTANDING;AWARD WINNING so get your grub on. Easy local vibe..Decent prices. Won't disappoint.

The seating area is very welcoming and away from the bar which is nice. The waitresses are always friendly and attentive. I can never turn down the wings, they're certainly a must try!

Over the years, the Ale House on River St has always been a favorite of mine. If you're looking for ambiance, go someplace else. If you're looking for great food at a reasonable price, the Ale House is the place. In my opinion, they've got...More
