Great restaurant for families. Wonderful comfort food. We love the variable grilled cheese sandwiches on the menu. This time it was BBQ chicken, bacon, green onions and several types of cheese. Yum! We sat outside on the back patio where the weather was perfect.

If you're lookin for a crowded spot with great brews, plenty of TV's and a great vibe, this is the place! The appetizers are good, the main menu however is pretty basic. All I can recommend is the burgers.

The ale house always has Old Rasputin on tap. There burgers are first class and the specials of the day are very good. Service is first class. I always make a point of eating there when I pass through.
