Dang they have a beer selection at reasonable priced. Plus they sell carry out beer which is great en route to the Amtrak. The food though was so so, had a burger, but maybe try something else.

Nice spot for dinner. Service a little slow but attentive staff and nice beer selection. I had the build it board with German food and several others had the schnitzel. All very good and a very nice evening.

We called in here for a pint and something to eat - impressive list of beers - and great food. We would have called in the following day - but the place was shut for a private function. Well worth a visit

Recently enjoyed a quick calamari and beverage at Capital Ale House. Friendly server on a Sunday afternoon. Watched some of the NFL games before departing. Wish they had a few more brown ales, but they had a few other flavors.
