We had a delightfully delicious meal at Ale House. The fried green tomatoes atop honey drizzled over feta is very tasty. Also, the pork chop special with fresh green beans and cauliflower was a perfect clean lean meal. To top it off the service was...More

Food, drinks and atmosphere are very good! Only complaint is the need for better seating for larger parties.
