The veggie pizza is good as are most specials. They have a nice selection of beer and the tap system is always clean. However the staff is largely clueless about craft beer. Beer prices are a bit higher than the flying saucer.

Very LOUD but great service, beer selection and menu. We were visiting the area and had no interest in the loud Saturday football games on all the TV's

Drinks were very good and beer was ice cold. Bartender, guy wearing the glasses was amazing, always taking care of our needs. We enjoyed everything, I would recommend live music outside for happy hour.

The restaurant was far from full on a Saturday evening which perhaps should have told me something. The beer menu was extensive but had little to offer in the way of local beers. As to food, I ordered a hamburger and it was pitifully overcooked. The meat was a shrunken, dried overdone piece of meat inspite of ordering it medium rare. The waitress and manager were apologetic but did nothing to correct the situation or get me something acceptable to eat. I was looking for some local flavor in a sports bar/restaurant with decent food. It was a sports bar but offered little else for my satisfaction. I will not return nor recommend this Carolina Ale House.
