    I love knowing I can always get my favorites, but check their specials menu anyway for great new things to try. And ask about their burger of the week! Here's the one I just had.

    Had some creole salmon when I was here that was on special, as well as fried yucca. Both delicious! My friend had a pepp. pizza burger (also a special) that he said was also delicious. I will be back.

    The Jambalaya is fantastic. Gotten get it on rice. The Mac and cheese with chicken is wonderful. If you see it on the menu, you must have the butternut squash soup. (Seasonal offer)

    60 Minute or the 90 Minute? Always a tough decision. Try the Alehouse 75! It's everything you love about each mixed together. Can't go wrong with this one.

    Not a good vegetarian selection. Eat before you come. Basically not so good hummus, pizza, one sandwich. Gluten free menu (limited, but hey- they have one)! Good beer and good waitstaff.

    One of my gave places in this are, and like every new dish I try. However, we weren't big fans of the new bread pudding. It was more like cake than the warm drizzly mess it should be!
