Great wings and burgers. Sat at the bar and was treated very well. Got us out in time for our show at the State Theater. Close enough to the theater and parking.

Food was good, (except for that one long hair in my chicken sandwich!!) Service provided by Margaret was excellent. She has a great personality. I hope they start wearing hair nets in the kitchen because it's a fun place and it would be a shame to lose customers if this happens often.

Food was delicious, and waitress was very attentive. Food arrived quickly as we were going to the theater. Even received a discount since we had our theater tickets.

We go to the Ale House often before seeing a show since food is good, and service is fast.

Good service even as it got very crowded. Loved the Squash Salad with salmon on top. Easy ambiance. Have recommended it to my musician husband who often plays at the State Theater. Glad I discovered it!

The food was excellent. The place is truly alive and full of noise. Including a Man with a whistle. That we didn’t need.

The staff of helpful and polite. Could have used a bit more servers but luckily we were not in a big hurry.

Highly recommend the GSAH to all.

Great place for brunch-something for everyone. And one of the best black bean burgers I have ever had. Reasonable prices. We are planning to go back to watch football.

Went for Sunday Brunch, has pitcher of Sangria very good and very large pitcher. Thought when I first saw it there was no way my husband and I could finish it , but we did yum. I had the shrimp and grits and it was very tasty. My husband had the waffles and chicken and he enjoyed it too. Will definitely be back and recommend it to others

Our waitress’s shift was over and stayed longer to serve us. As a bartender I respect that she was not rushing us especially after our 2nd pitcher of Sangria. Will be back for brunch again!

I will never eat here again. The food was nasty. I ordered the steak and eggs with French toast and grits. The steak was cooked perfectly but it was cook in A1 steak sauce making the steak taste sour! Steak sauce should be optional. The French toast taste like plain bread I had to send them back! The grits were very nasty they taste like chicken noodle soup it was overly seasoned. The service sucked! The waitress constantly walked past the table without asking if we were ok or need anything else. The waitress was at the bar sitting in her boyfriends lap tongue kissing him instead of making sure her guest were well taken care of. The mimosa was the best part and the only thing good. I’m highly disappointed I drive 40 minutes to this place. I plan on NEVER returning.

This place is wonderful. At first, from the outside it looks like a little hole in the wall dive bar, but once you walk inside you’re surprised by the space and decor of this spot. Sunday brunch for Father’s Day was delicious. My family raved at the shrimp and grits, while I totally enjoyed the French Toast platter. And I haven’t even started on the bottomless mimosas that kept coming the moment my glass was empty. I’m definitely going again and would recommend it to all

My family and I visit often in the 4 years my college son has been in the area. My son graduated and I had a reservation for 2:45. I arrived and it took a while for someone to even acknowledge my family and I standing at the front desk. The young lady finally responded and I told her we had a reservation. She said she would be back which again took a while. We are then escorted downstairs after I requested in advance a table on the first floor. As we arrived at our table there was a very large party of about 20+ people sitting at the long table beside us. It was so noisy that we could not hear each other talk. The party beside us kept yelling and being very disruptive. I asked the waiter for a table upstairs because this was way to loud. He came back to day it would be a 45 minute wait. We sat there another 5-10 minutes and the party beside us was really loud. Finally we decided to just order and take food with us. Explained this to waiter and young lady that seated us. Once we arrived upstairs no one was willing to take order for to go. We waited some more and finally my family and I decided to leave. I understand having limited space but you need to police your guests to prevent your other guest from being disrupted. They acknowledged the extreme noise but did nothing to resolve. Customer Service was definitely not on the building on this date.

We were seated immediately and the waitress was attentive and the food was great! The appetizers and drinks were served quickly. The only drawback was it took a long time for the entrees to come out and be served.

Made reservations before a show. Upon arrival, we were escorted to a basement table. After sitting for 10 minutes and a waitress walking by us and never acknowledging us, we got up and left. Walked over to the Tavern in George and had a fabulous dining experience. Found our new go to place in New Brunswick!

I didn’t like where my boyfriend and I were sat. I also didn’t understand if you’re asking what the occasion no one really said anything about it i mentioned it was our anniversary and got nothing nor was told anything. I thought our waiter wasn’t attentive only when spoken to was she. Being sat downstairs you really don’t hear the music. Overall, it was 3/5 stars maybe if I try again it would be better experience.

We ate downstairs because it was very loud upstairs. We were by ourselves so it was really nice. Service was good even tho we were the only ones downstairs. I had shrimp tacos and they were delicious!! Hubby had a burger and fries which he enjoyed as well. Beer selection was not as varied as we hoped. No porters and very few IPA’s on tap
