After a long week it was time to hit the House and order up a beer and some wings. Problem with the beer, because they were in the middle of taps and their "new beer menu" was not ready.

The pint size of beers are not a true pint. The pint glasses have the same shape as a traditional pint glass but are smaller and consequently have less volume. Restaurants have a big markup on alcoholic beverages, please don't cheat people on the volume of the drinks they order.

We were in Raleigh this weekend and hit up Carolina Ale house for dinner. I had the Brisket Burger with the horseradish sauce and it was amazing. The appetizer of fried pickles was delish too! Kids entrees were really good and my youngest got an awesome side salad to go with his grilled cheese=one happy kid!!! Definitely will return!

During my recent stay I can stay pne thing about this hotel and it is consisted, Chef Creig opened the breakfast bar about an extra 30mins sooner to make sure that all of the guest had what they needed and wanted.

My husband and I wanted to sit at a bar to watch some ballgames and have some food. This was the right choice. The beers were cold and the food good. The bartenders were outstanding. I really liked Shannon.

They were out of ribs and the ginger ale had no syrup. Bad start, had to walk out and go to BJ's Brewhouse next door.
