Great mini-chain 1/12/2006

Haven't been here, myself, but I really enjoy its sister-pub Hilltop Ale House Also same owners as 74th St. Ale House Columbia City Ale House should be a good bet. more

Nice pub atmosphere, great beer selection... 12/7/2005

I like this place at lot. So much so that I wish they would change the menu every now and then. The sandwiches are great; Reuben, Green chili tuna and catfish. The burger is often overcooked so I don't order that anymore. I would go there more if they changed the menu a bit. They list daily specials but these are hit or miss. Their stews are served in tiny bowls that don't hold very much and the crust on their potpies are prebaked pieces of puff pastry which aren't really a part of the dish??? I was there last night and the music was so loud we could barely talk. Our waitress was curt and threw stuff on the table which we thought was rude. She was not even that busy! more

Your basic pub with some interesting menu choices 8/18/2005

Next-door Tutta Bella has been giving the Ale House a run for its money. Although the food is better at Tutta Bella, the advantage of the Ale House is that it is a kid-free environment. So, if you're not in the mood for the hustle and bustle of Tutta Bella, the Ale House is a good choice. Service can be great or very bad, which is also true of the specials. The sandwiches are all great. more

fantastic 8/17/2005

This restaurant and bar combines the look and feel of a British pub with the food of a place several times more posh. There is something in this neighborhood eatery for everyone, but my personal recommendation is the fish tacos with kiwi salsa. Just thinking about them makes my mouth water. Many of the menu items seem Cajun-inspired, and the beer and wine selection is excellent. The staff is knowledgeable and charmingly unobtrusive. This is a small place with the amazing abilty to deliver a relative lot of variety. Television sets are constantly on and usually tuned to sports events, sometimes there is a live band, but you can still find a table appropriate for intimate conversation. Pretty good people-watching can be had here as well. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual. Parking in Columbia City can be daunting if you don't know about the free lot hidden on Edmonds Street east of Rainier Ave.. Even this fills up fast, but pay parking is relatively cheap compared to downtown. more

  • The Scene
    Those who have visited Jeff Reich and Jeff Eagan's other pubs, the Hilltop Ale House and the 74th Street Ale House, will know exactly what to expect: a clean, welcoming and popular spot filled with neighbors. Framed pictures of English pubs adorn the walls, while local sports games air on the TVs. Servers clearly enjoy their jobs and will guide you through the menu and the beer list.

    The Draw
    Superb food, cozy ambience and an extensive list of local, seasonal microbrews you won't find elsewhere create many return customers. If you're looking for typical pub grub, this may not be your place: there's not a french fry, chicken wing or anything fried on the menu. But you'll be thrilled with blackened catfish sandwich, grilled turkey burger, homemade gumbo or one of the stellar daily specials.
