    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.

    Sunday brunch at Ale Mary's was awesome as usual. We live 4 hours away now, but when I am in town I make a point to stop in. The staff is always friendly, the beers are always interesting, and the food is always delicious - biggest vegan menu in the area outside of an exclusive vegan restaurant! It can get a little loud when the place is packed, but its a good vibe there - no TVs to distract from conversation, and we always seem to end up talking with someone new.

We had a group of 5 and our server, India was fantastic. she remembered all our orders without writing it down and we ordered a lot!! We were never without a drink or something to eat. We enjoyed every minute of being at Ale Mary’s and we will return for sure. Thank you for a great night out, good food and fabulous service

    3 of 4 meals were awesome. Our server, India, was THE BEST! The igloo had seen better days, the "door" was ripped and it was 27° that day so the "heater", even at 90°, did little to help.

    Seating was terrible, we were right by the door at a giant table with little kids sitting on a bench. Had a reservation and they wouldn’t offer a different location. Food was mediocre and I wouldn’t return. Worst margarita I’ve ever had in my life…tasted like watered down tequila with lime juice. No idea how this is a top 25 burger joint. I wouldn’t even put it in the bottom 25.

    There is something for everyone on the menu - vegan and vegetarian friendly, excellent cocktails, unique beer offerings, long wine list, extensive bourbon, scotch, and whiskey options - and it was an excellent choice for a celebration. India was an excellent server, down to the surprise birthday cheesecake and sparkler to round out the experience!

    Host was great, said Happy Birthday to my wife right away and accommodated our early arrival for our reservation . Server was great and very patient with our indecisiveness. Food was good to great. My beer wasn't as cold as I'd like it to be, but I'm a snob. Good music, played a good volume. We'll be back.

    food is excellent. portion sizes differ, such as the chicken and waffles which are a very filling meal versus the tacos which are very light on the protein (shrimp, etc.)

    The server was excellent. The food was really good, but pricy - 2 pops, 2 meals, and an appetizer was $70+! It was so loud you could hardly hear the person across the table, not just talking but loud music. Having a reservation on Saturday night was a must, they were telling folks an hour and 45 min wait when we arrived at 4:30pm. We were seated in 10 min.

    I reserved one of the igloos for a first date. The space heater kept it comfortable, and it made for a very quiet and cozy space to have great conversation. Bartender John made a great Spanish coffee! The waitstaff here is always amazing, and was very attentive even with us being out in the igloo! My favorite place!
