Alehouse Testimonials

“Dropped by for dinner around 5:30 on a Saturday, it was quiet and pretty slow which was refreshing. I'd imagine this place gets MUCH busier at night for the late night crowd. The menu isn't huge but their food was excellent, very tasty!! We ordered a Biscuit and Bird for me, Alehouse Burger, and wings. So much flavor, even the coleslaw might be the best I've EVER had! They have board games and darts you can play while you wait or while your eating/drinking. LOVE the fries!!! Yum!!”
