"Been to the Alehouse four times and hoped for better food. The prices are high considering the environment and the food has been consistently underwhelming. The short rib (not plural) tasted great, but with only one section of rib, it left me wanting more. The fish and chips were a great portion size, but the fish was overcooked and under seasoned. My wife was happy with her French dip, but sad that the 12.99 shrimp appetizer only came with five shrimp. All of the appetizers are overpriced for the area and compared to competitors.
Not sure I will return. Some hits and some misses, but too pricey for what you get."

"This is one of the few restaurants in Columbia that isn't a chain, and yet it still has the feel of a restaurant that is properly run with experienced staff. Their food is fantastic (they even have a wide array of vegetarian options), they have awesome beers, wines, and cocktails, and the ambience is fun but not too casual. I love the Vegetarian Bahn Mi and the Pineapple Chili Margarita, my boyfriend loves the prime rib that they serve on Friday and Saturday nights. This is definitely one of our favorite restaurants!"

"It's a step up from your average sports bar. The food is great and has unique sauces and flavors, not your standard sports bar fare. I had the grilled salmon which had an excellent pesto sauce with a hint of orange on sautéed spinach with risotto. All great flavors and prepared perfectly."

"Online reviews were pretty good so we went in with high expectations. Left very disappointed. Tex Mex eggrolls were mainly onion which was sad because the server highly recommended them. Buffalo Chicken sandwich was almost inedible because the bread was so hard and the blue cheese tasted off. My boyfriend's bacon cheeseburger was totally understand cooked and the bacon tasted store bought, not like the maple bacon that was advertised. Will not be returning."

"My husband and I are regulars at the Ale House (sometimes for dinner, sometimes just at the bar), but decided to take advantage of the special NYE menu. The food was well prepared and appropriate portions (Caesar salad, roast duck with farro and greens for me, crab bisque and filet mignon with shrimp and fried brussel sprouts for him) so we could still enjoy the mindblowing fresh made cinnamon sugar doughnuts for dessert. The prix fixe menu had suggested beer or wine pairings; I followed the suggestions for the beer with great results. (You can't go wrong with ordering the drinks on your own or with suggestions from the knowledgeable staff, either.) The menu featured things I would never try to make myself (see: roast duck) and was a nice change from our dependable sandwiches, salads, flatbreads and appetizers."

"I wish OpenTable would allow just a quick rating rather than having to write something. Would make me more apt to review every place vs just when there's something in particular to rant or rave about.
So: Food was pretty good (brunch). Nice bloody mary bar with option of bottomless for $10 which I could see being trouble/fun. Our server was great to start out, then completely ignored us for 20 min once we'd finished our meal. She'd walk by, look over, keep walking. Almost like she thought she'd handed us off to another server. We had wanted to order dessert and coffee - too bad/after 20 min we finally got attention and by that point it was time to cut our losses, just pay and go elsewhere."
