I always enjoy the atmosphere, the patio, drinks, and food at The Ale House. There aren't many venues that have the relaxing patio dining offered here. Craft beers, specialty drinks, great food make this restaurant a choice destination multiple times per month. Especially, during the summer months.

Like the booth set up in the back, otherwise you can't hear yourself speak when it gets crowded - which it frequently is.

This is my favorite place to enjoy the sunshine on the patio during the warm months of the year. The sweet potato fries are yummy here.

Good food and they were able to set us at a nice table. There were several people in our party. We had called ahead but they didn't seem to have record of that yet could fit us in even though they were very busy and we were a large group.

I went to dinner here tonight as part of a group of seven. Everyone liked their food and the service couldn't have been better. One person had a haddock sandwich and said it was the best fish she'd had since moving to Colorado several years ago. I had the fish fry and I would get it again.

Met my cousin here last Sunday to have a beer, catch up, and watch the Broncos cream the Saints. (Well . . . not really cream . . . more like squeak by with a blocked PAT!). Our server was friendly, attentive and fun. We had salads (Asian and seared ahi), beer and wine. The place was relaxed and quiet... More

Was impressed by the level of service we received. Greeted immediately upon entry, seated promptly, and waitress arrived quickly for the drink orders. Food selection was terrific - had a hard time choosing just one! Not just the typical burger and chicken sandwiches - so may be disappointed if that's what you're seeking. Check their website for the menu. Lots... More

we actually hadn't been here for some time, and went because of an event we participated in had the awards banquet here. it was fun. staff was appropriately accomodating for the 'crowd' (maybe 100 or so) of the Senior Games Participants -- and we had a good buffet. Felt very welcome and enjoyed our time there.
