Happy hour from 4-6 offers some nice selections, flat bread puzzas are tasty. The menu does change from time to time, higher end bar food offered. Don't miss the chicken pot pie if it's offered.

Based upon recommendations we went to the Vail Alehouse sports bar. It had about a dozen TV screens mounted on the walls. When we were there last game of the baseball playoffs was on along with some exciting football games college football games. Our team unfortunately lost. The food was okay. Our food and wait staff was friendly.

We stopped after a long hike and were thirsty and famished. The beer was cold and hit the spot. The service was good, though we did have to search for our server when waiting for our check. Up until that point, he was attentive and helpful. We ordered three different sandwiches and none of us was thrilled with the food,... More

We have been to the Alehouse twice in the last week - the food was that good! From burgers to sandwiches to chicken pot pies, every meal has been great! The service has been friendly and efficient. One of the best blue chees burgers I have ever had!

Vail Alehouse on the north of I 70 and easy to get to although it is a bit tucked away. Even though we were there at about 5pm on a weekday, it was fairly busy with a nice and welcoming atmosphere. It has a large square bar area which seems to be a popular local hang-out. There's lot of other... More

The beer choices are good. Green chili is yummy and not too spicy. The fish tacos and bacon on the Cobb salad were undercooked. Good vibe for hanging out and watching sports on the many TVs.

Food is a cut above pub fare. Lots of drink/beer selection. Tv's for sports watching. Occasionally live music. Staff are all on point. Big thanks to Barber, Casey, Scott, Amber, Greg. They all helped try and wear out some kids that should have been tired from an active day, while keeping us from thirst. Great for group outings as well

The food was good but we got our appetizer and the main course at the exact same time. The place was nearly empty at 6 PM and the waiter seemed distracted. There were a few other minor things that raised the eyebrows so I would suggest going to another spot.

This restaurant was delicious and not crowded during the GoPro Mountain Games (most likely because it was across from the resort and not within the resort). We ordered the bacon mac and cheese and the fish and chips and they were both very tasty. The price was not too bad, given that it is Vail, so most things are more... More

Second visit last night, super burgers. No complaints. Solid choice. Lots of seating. I see some bad reviews but I had no issues.
