We decided to spend some time in Blowing Rock on our spring vacation. My husband had researched the area ahead of time and we wanted to try the Blowing Rock Ale House and some of their craft beers. We stopped in for lunch and liked it so much we decided to stay in the inn that night! The staff was...

Went to the Ale House because their burgers were on the top 5 restaurants for hamburgers in the area. Majorly disappointed. We arrived in the middle of the afternoon, place was busy but not packed. We had to wait 30 minutes to be seated even though there were several empty tables in the dining area. Ordered the fried oysters for...

Diane, Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed by our burgers while visiting the Ale House. As a craft cuisine restaurant, our burgers are never frozen. Our meats are locally sourced through our suppliers and brought in fresh throughout the week. Many folks rave about our thicker hand patties which are always prepared...

My husband and I always come here on the weekends. The staff and service are friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and professional. The food is very good, my favorite is the oyster bites and bison burger. Always consistent. Also, the beer is awesome, lots of choices and they have brewery tours. Big shout out to Cody, Seth, Jordan, Micki and Caroline. You...

We stopped here during our anniversary trip. Place was packed, even at 3pm. We did get a seat at the tiny bar after waiting a few minutes. i was confused by how small the bar was since we were at a brewery. 10'ish seats crammed into a small room that's almost cut off from the rest of the building....which is...

We are sorry to hear that you had a poor experience at the Ale House. Our locations began as a bed and breakfast which was converted to the Ale House and Inn once we acquired the building. We enjoy the cozy aspect of our location and hope that our patrons do as well. Our brewing styles are traditional by design...

Found this place quite by accident while looking for a parking place. Lovely interior, nice and warm on a cold, wet day. The food was above average. Tasty southern fried chicken sandwich, burger cooked to perfection, and the surprise, a salmon sandwich with country ham!!! Our waiter was very personable but not overbearing, and the brews were good. Definitely would...

Came here over this Winterfest weekend. Tried the chili at the cookoff and decided to stop in. They were out of beer cheese so got pimento cheese with pretzels which was awesome. Had the raspberry wheat and loved it. Second beer was pilsner which was awesome too. Sat at the bar (tiny) and got great service. Jourdyn was super friendly...

Beer, food, facility, atmosphere & service were all exceptional! A wonderful time with my 70+ year old father declaring his beer was the best he ever had. After travelling the world and drinking a LOT of beer, his approval is special. Our entire family enjoyed the vibe & our time together! Cheers!

My fiancé and I stayed here for the weekend. The rooms are super cute and the staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms and entire property were clean and neat. This Inn was right above the brewery and was right in the middle of town. Easy to walk to shops and restaurants. We only gave three stars because the weekend we...
