I stopped in to watch and game and grab a bite to eat. The staff were nice enough to put the game I wanted to watch but the service could improve. It took over 20 minutes to take my order and took longer to get my food or refills. The food wasn't tasty and would not go back.

They have a great selection of beer that changes constantly. The food is above average pub food and the bartenders alone are worth the trip.

Have been going to this establishment for quite a few years now, a usual Saturday stop. Not a typical sports bar having bar's on both sides. One side for usual sports-bar activity with an ample supply of large screen TV's, a generous offering of different beers, both draft and bottled. The food is above average as pub food goes. The...

Well, I've never left a place because of poor service, but there's a first time for everything! Someone else mentioned that if you're a female "good luck getting a drink": that's exactly what happened. I arrived and the gal acted as if I wasn't there. Waited a few minutes, then ended up going to the end of the bar, hoping... More

We stop in once in a While for something to eat and a cold beer. It's usually busy but the waitstaff usually gets to you eventually. Most of the folks that come here are local. They cater to all age groups. Twenty something's to seniors. Nobody seems to mind. Don't expect a high end lounge experience in this bar. It's... More

If you are female, good luck getting a drink, the bartenders ignore you, skip over you many times, and then give you an attitude when you get frustrated and flag them down. This happened to several other women, and on multiple visits, not a one time thing.

This is a place in town where you can get good drinks and happy hour foods are put out around 5. You can also order wings which are really good. Enjoy.

Stopped in for a glass of wine with my husband. Never been here myself, but my husband and son have frequented here often. I was very pleasantly surprised. Very welcoming. Staff was wonderful. The clientele was extremely varied. Happy hour prices. They put out an incredible spread for Friday happy hour! Salad, deli tray, pizza, hot roast beef in gravy,... More

Nice local pub with great happy hour deals. One Dozen Clams for $6.00 and on Tuesday it was all you can eat Buffalo wings for $6.99. Hard to beat with good brew. Staff was friendly and attentive and plenty of big screen TVs with sports on.

I had an opportunity to stop by the Orange Ale House in Orange, CT. What a pleasant surprise, great cold beer on tap, friendly employees and great tasting food. The atmosphere was lively without being too loud, a separate room for darts and another for pool. It makes you want to keep coming back.If you are traveling on I95 in... More
