We visited my brother-in-law and sister-in-law in Cary and they brought us to the Carolina Ale House. It has a typical sports bar feel, with a lot of Carolina memorabilia -- heavy on the Michael Jordan. My wife and I love to sample the local food and brews, so we really enjoyed it.

I've been here a few times for dinner and I haven't had a bad meal yet. The food also seems to come very quickly. I recommend trying the sweet potato fries!

Had a group of 6 on a Saturday night and only had to wait 20 minutes. Good food and plenty of it! Great burger and would definitely go back.

We have eaten here often over many years, and never come away disappointed. The food is really good, the drinks are generous, and the service is always wonderful. We will eat here again and again.

Carolina Ale House is a sports bar with an endless beer selection and moderately priced, excellent food. Their beer battered french fries are awesome and the charcoal tasting burgers are hand made, large patties. The wait staff and manager go the extra length to make sure your visit is a great experience. We will definitely be back

Excellent service. I received a warm greeting and was seating immediately. I was in a hurry and the team served my food in what seemed like about 10 min. I recommend ordering a cup of the French Onion soup. It's excellent.
