Success! Thanks for posting your review of Library Ale House. You’ve done the world some good today.

Good beer, good food

I'm a fan of the Sunday lunch on the back patio. Though, I don't drink beer anymore. I know that they have great offerings and often have specials and raffles. The food is always good, and it's a great gathering space for a meal with friends.

A Main Street Favorite

Love the food at the Library Alehouse. A few of my favorites: the portobello mushroom sandwich, the salmon enchiladas & the strawberry-spinach salad. Also great salsa and a nice selection of beer. On the downside, the place is a little cramped, so you may be elbow to elbow with your dining neighbors or have a tough time finding a seat at the bar after work.

Rude Manager

I stop in there often for lunch on weekends. A few weeks ago I went on a Friday afternoon. When I arrived, I was told I could not have a table because I was alone. I requested that the host ask the manager if it would be okay for me to sit at an empty 2-top. The manager said no.\r \r They sat me at the tiny counter in the front window. It's about 8 inches deep! I sat there quite a while with my menu. The man... view more

Holy shizz this is the best place I've ever been

Need I say more? This place will kick you right in the junk and leave you begging for more. Also, it is not a library. They got mad when I tried to check out an menu.

Great Patio on the Backside

Kind of packed inside but usually can find a great seat on the backside patio. Great selection of brews. Super spot on Main St when you dont have a reservation elsewhere. Food is above average and definitely not over priced.

Great beer, friendly staff, awesome food

I go to the Alehouse all the time, and I have been for years. The food is yummy and fresh (farmers market veggies) and everyone that work there is super friendly. The wait is generally pretty long, but I try some beers (huge selection) and it goes by quickly. Nights when they show a Laker game can be way too crowded but overall my experiences have been fun, and my meals delicious. I suggest getting there early an... view more

Loved the food, but not the lack of patio lighting

I really enjoy the crispy coconut shrimp with pineapple salsa I ordered, and my friend?s burger was delicious as well. Service was quick and attentive. The downside though is that ?cause the front inside dining area as well as the patio outback are both rather tiny, waits for a table can get long. Also fyi, the restaurant only serves wine and beer (though their selections in those categories are substantial enough). ... view more
