Favorite place for brunch! Always delicious and the service is great. All of the options for breakfast or lunch are so hard to pick from. Will be coming back.

We love the restaurant. We always come here when we go the State Theater. You are never rushed (it’s small)and every one is polite and friendly

We had reservations for 2:30, did not get seated until 3:00; then our server didn’t come over to us for 20 minutes, and then when our food was brought to us, some of our party had cold food

Just about what you would expect from a college town brunch spot. SUPER CROWDED with huge parties but that was fine by us! If you want a quiet, private spot, this isn’t the one. Amazing value. Only $26 for the meal (which was a huge portion) as well as bottomless mimosas per person. We had a booth downstairs right next to the bar so our server was constantly passing our table and stopping for refills. Tons of TVs in the place so great for game days! I haven’t been able to find another bottomless mimosa place in central jersey so this was a gem to discover!

Went to George Street Ale House before a show at the State Theatre just a few blocks away. Had a great meal and beverages, was served on time and was offered a 15% discount because we had tickets in hand for the performance. Lively crowd as there was a playoff game on the tvs. Great experience and good price. Definitely recommend! Casual dress, of course.

Had an OpenTable reservation created one week in advance. Reconfirmed reservation via text message OpenTable a day prior, and yes you guessed it . When I get George Street Ale House on time for my reservation, George Street Ale house had no clue as to what I was talking about. Thats right, you guessed it , the place was packed and I was told because of a party of five that I had , we would have to wait 30 to 45 minutes. Glad I made the reservation?

Toughest part was parking! Sarah treated us warmly and we loved re-connecting with Jim and his great Trivia contest! We'll be back and hope to score a booth next time as well - very comfy! My Irush cheddar burger was delicious, and the awfully-named crucifixion IPA was very good(and very strong).

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.

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.

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.
