The Capital Ale House was renovated after the roof fell in a year or so ago. I had hoped that this would help with the noise level but it did not. My dining partner and I had to yell to be heard over the constant...More

We chose this restaurant for the extensive local craft beer list. Overall it was a nice choice, the food was good and we liked our beer choices. The service seemed a little slower (we sat at the bar) but it may have been just because...More

A nice place for a good meal. Some nice selections to choose from that are not your usual bar food. Service was good on a very busy night.

This place has a fantastic selection of beer (possibly the largest in the area), and the food is always top notch. We've never had a bad experience here, and it's always a safe bet for a great meal and great beer.More

My husband had visited the Ale House before. We stopped in for a sandwich and drinks. We enjoyed our meals. The french dip was delicious. Loved the ice bar along the bar. Kept drinks really cold. We will return to the Ale House again.

Arrived after 10 p.m., we were worried it would be a limited menu, with a lot of college kids. We're told it would be a 20 minute wait for a table and took a seat (luckily) at the crowded and incredibly long bar with an...More
