    We were sooo late for our reservation bc our sitter was late. I called the restaurant and Andre was like, "i got u girl! Come on over when u can". I already knew it was gonna be a good night. Parking was a bit hard to find but its a busy area. When we got there, got seated right away. Lisa maybe Amy was our waitress and she was awsome. Buffalo Cauliflower, two beer flights, and the 4lb burrito were all awesome. It was such a fun night!!!

    This is usually a very reliable brunch spot but yesterday was just ok. The avocado toast came basically as just mashed avocado on toast with a drizzle of honey ... no red pepper flakes or seasoning. When I inquired the waitstaff valia

    The appearance was just what is suggested by the name. Everything is in character. My friend and I are vegans and we were very happy with the menu and with the reality of our selections. Everything was great.

    We were over a half hour early for our reservation and seated quickly. The food and service were great, as always. The vegan and vegetarian menu choices are outstanding, there really isn't a comparable place, I just wish there was more room inside!

    We had a great time at Ale Mary's. I love their Caesar salad dressing! My husband enjoyed his cheeseburger, but we'd like a larger beer selection. Also, the tables were dirty.

    I alway enjoy going to Ale Marys for their vegan menu. I appreciate that it is an option, and for all of the variety. The drinks were just so so for the price. My boyfriend was disappointed in the bloody mary.

    We had ten people for my birthday, but were accommodated easily. The waitress seemed generally in a stressed/negative space, but still tried to be nice. After taking our orders, she pretty much disappeared until it came out. With food so expensive, it's disappointing when things weren't gotten right. Burnt/not hot things throughout the table. Still a good time.

    I'm not a cheap person and I almost always get drinks, appetizers and additional sides with my entrees when I'm dining out with people. 20% is the absolute floor of my tipping scale. So, "value" is not typically something of great concern when considering my dining options. I also understand it is a tough time for supply chains and the service industry. With all that said, spending $26 on a pair of appetizers (Vegan Pickles, Vegan O-Rings) that ended up being a very moderate helping of fried vegetables, feels ridiculous. The wait time for our entrees was also bordering on absurd. Everything tasted good, the service was friendly and helpful and attentive and I will be back. But this is a place that I love and my most recent visit fell severely below my expectations.

    Overall an ok experience. Had to ask for a menu. High spot was the beer selection albeit server was not able to recc. a strong ale without help. Cheese burger melt with bacon and fries were good. Fish n chips were ok, tried to substitute fries for cauliflower, however was dripping in buffalo sauce and overly sour in taste.

    Food did not look good when served and did not taste good. Chille fries maybe had a tablespoon of chille on them that looked like dog doo doo. Corn chowder had a skim on top of it as if it had been sitting for a while. Philly chicken sandwich was served on a Toca dish and was dry. Service was ok.
