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.

If you're looking for tavern food, this is your best bet in town. There's plenty of variety to choose from, and everything tastes fresh. Lots of great brews. The staff is very friendly and knowledgable. Their patio out back is the perfect place to enjoy a cold beer on a summer night.

Went to watch football and figured it was a beer and burger place (yawn) but to my happy surprise, there was an excellent menu with many other menu choices, besides burgers and beers. The helpful bartender gave us his three best recommends and I ordered the fresh to ordered had battered fish and chips, it was delicious and crispy, not... More

Had a great dinner & adult beverages there. The service was on the spot. The food was excellent! What a nice clean & eclectic place. Very busy. We looked it up from our hotel. It was easy to find. Would recommend to anyone. Will come again. Thanks.

Stopped in Grand Junction for one night and wanted a hearty meal somewhere. The Ale House was it - had the bison burger and it was very good. Nice selection of beers as well. Excellent customer service and wait staff, went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Would definitely eat here again.

Stopped by the Ale House after relocating my Mother for Voc Rehab for a broken hip. We st on the patio and had a drink and the sausage and cheese board, which is excellent. Michael, our waiter was excellent and very understanding. We will definitely be here again and again!

We visited here twice when we were here for the Wine Festival. Garden sitting was a nice change from most inside bars. Weather was perfect for outside for us folks from Arizona and not used to doing this at this time of year. Great service and unique beer! Bar service was also top notch.🍺👍🏻

Thank tom_kowalinski
