8 of us had Dinner at the Ale House ( 8PM Reservations) on a Saturday Night. The up stairs dinning room was less than half filled. However there was a party downstairs. Kitchen was total OVERWHELMED!!! We waited over an hour for our food (...More

Capital al house is great for beer lovers. Plenary to choose from and lots of fun options. The food is good, but I really go here for the drinks.

Nothing bad to report. Food was great and excellent service from the staff. A diverse beer and wine selection. It's a bit crowded during peak hours so that should tell you something. It's GOOD!!!

I love it here! The Mussels and the Calamari are the best I have ever had. Not the run of the mill. More like gourmet! The staff is always friendly and the variety of beer is insanely wonderful.

We've eaten here several times and love the food but every time we wait forever to get our food. Also takes the server longer than it should to even acknowledge you.

Capital Ale House is a really nice upscale bar atmosphere with really REALLY good food! Seriously, everything I have tried here has been amazing. I highly recommend it. The fries are good, the beer cheese soup is really good (I get it almost every time),...More

Out shopping and stopped in fir a cold drink. Lots of choices in draft and even more bottled or in cans. The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable. Sampled a couple craft brews before selecting a locally brewed one. Great selection from which to choose.
