I called ahead since we had a party of 10, and while they don’t take reservations, they were very friendly about putting us on a wait list. We had an early dinner (5:00) and didn’t really need the wait list, but it definitely picked up...More

Hadn't been here in a while. Although past visits were average, this visit was excellent. Had a great beer selection which included an outstanding Lagunitas Willet Barrel Aged Imperial Stout which we don't see on tap very often. The Southwest Chicken Salad was loaded with...More

I would give Geneva Ale House a 3.5 if I could. Some of the items are quite good, and others are fairly average. The atmosphere is nice, but not a huge place so can get crowded on the weekend. Decent beer selection but there are...More

Large beer selection but they do not brew their own beers. Nice varied menu with lots of different selections. Small casual place, good food and service. In the old Geneva theatre building.

Went for a family birthday dinner. The hamburgers are superb - all of them. The fries were not very crispy, but tasted fine. There was a flatbread special that was excellent taste, but the portion was very small. Incredible selection of craft beers, but less...More

This is a decent spot for lunch. There are many options and the process are reasonable. They do a good Fish & Chips and the variety was surprising. The food was good and it's not far from the Herrington Inn.
