I've been here a lot. It's always solid and the food is always good. Service is also pretty good. My only complain is the lights are TOO bright. It looses the warmth that is there during the day when the lights make you feel like you are in a bus station.

33 West is a wonderful local place to have a drink and appetizers or to have a delicious lunch or dinner! The food is always good and the service is friendly, even if you aren't a local!

This was my first visit to 33 West Ale and Grill. I met some friends there and just loved the place. The food was exceptional and April, the Manager, provided expert advice concerning their Craft Beers. This is a very popular place from what I have been told and I have no doubts that it is not true.

The food was above average for what I expected. It was a hot day and was over 90 degrees inside the day we ate there. Thankful our waitress kept us filled with ice cold drinks.

We sat at the bar where the bartender was attentive and courteous. We split the cauliflower app which was delicious. I had the chicken pot pie which was as good as any that I ever had. My wife had the roast beef sandwich in the pretzel roll which was tender and flavorful. They have an excellent selection of draft beer

4 of us stopped by on a Thursday night for dinner. We were surprised by how many of the appetizers we wanted to get, and agreed we'd even go back a second time to try more (we didn't -- I wish we did since our final night eating at Restaurant 55 was a bit of a let down). The main... More

The first time we had the brussel sprout appetizer, we were told that they were air fried. I'm not sure what they did to them but they were wonderfully delicious and delightfully crisp. Hope they keep doing them that way.

We walked in looking for a place to have lunch. It was cozy inside and the staff was very friendly. The menu made our selection difficult because we wanted to try everything. The salads, appetizers, sandwiches and flat breads all were tempting. We decided to share the cheesesteak egg rolls and Bavarian pretzels with cheese queso. We didn't go wrong.... More
