Great bar, Great beer! Bronx Ale House has been on my list for months and I never had an opportunity to check it out until last night. I went with a friend last night and we both really liked the place. Its a cool spot with a neighborhood feel unlike its neighboring Buffalo Wild Wings and the other cookie cutter spots that are taking over the area. Bronx ale house had a great crowd last night. Not to mention plenty of attractive women. They have a nice selection of craft beers. The first one I tried was "Bells Consecrator" and WOW! This beer is delicious! So good that I just stuck with it the entire night. This place is really about the craft beer. They even serve each beer in its appropriate drink ware. This isnt some generic pub specializing in bottles of bud light. For food I had the fried pickles and the jerk chicken bites. The pickles were pretty good but the jerk chicken bites were kinda tough and not served to me hot. I had to ask them to re heat them. Food was definitely not the highlight of my visit. Despite the misstep in the food department Im giving them 4 stars. Its a fun spot with some excellent beer, a friendly attentive staff and a good crowd. Im still going to come back and try more food, I saw things that other people ordered that looked really good.
Bronx Ale House is a legitimately good beer pub located right in Riverdale by the 1 train. It has a nice interior that is kept a bit cleaner than a lot of hardcore beers bars, although with the prerequisite dark wood paneling. Service is very friendly, with waitresses happy to grab you samples. I didnt test their beer knowledge too much though as I had company. While I wasnt completely bowled over with the finer details, this is definitely a worthwhile temple of beer. I got the Bronx Bomber sliders and they were decent, although a bit overcooked. Fries were freshly cut, and the rest of the menu looked decent as well--perfect stuff to pair with beer. Overall beer selection include some legitimately good stuff on can and bottle--such as Hair of the Dog and Oskar Blues--but I found the tap selection to be a bit lacking. It wasnt bad mind you, just nothing stood out or seemed to be thoughtfully put together. Looking at their tap selection today, maybe I just caught it on an off day when they hadnt gotten some deliveries or something. In any event, this is the only game in town for the Bronx. I will be back because it can be convenient for me, and especially considering that it is considerable cheaper than other beer bars like this.
I ate there twice. The first time the good was rather bland and overpriced for the portions but the server was nice and I decided to give it another shot. Tonight I went with a Friend and we ordered different food. He ordered the shrimp sandwich and couldnt even finish it- he said it was tasteless. It was expensive for a sandwich too. I had the mushroom chicken soup. The taste wasnt bad but it was served cold after a long wait. I asked term nicely if they could reheat it and they did but lo and behold it was still LUKEWARM. I didnt want to make them crazy and I was hungry so I just ate it the way it was. It was also crusty around the top which appeared like it was in a cold pot all day. All in all I wouldnt return there. The servers were nice today as well so we still tipped properly but we felt cheated.
Very few establishments can boast outstanding drink,food,staff and atmosphere. Welcome to The Bronx Ale House. If you enjoy delicious eats in a friendly pub setting, look no further. All the burgers are large and mouth watering. The veggie burger was voted best in the entire city,and its got my vote. The pulled pork(Carolina style)is exceptional,and you can add it to any sandwich.If you add it to the grilled cheese on Texas toast, prepare for a quick trip to Heaven. But just as important as the food and incredible craft beer selection(in my book),are the The Ale House staff. You wont find a finer bunch of friendly,courteous, and warm managers and servers anywhere else...though I have to mention Rory Dolans in that regard. Do yourself a favor and visit them soon. I dare you to be be disappointed....
Theres something for everyone at the Bronx Alehouse. From the daily or weekly menu specials to the live tap list, a good time will be had by all at the Alehouse. There wont be any big named brews on tap but you will have drafts that have more complexity, in most cases. There are also cask beers on tap. The food is delicious. Having tasted most of the menu, I can attest to the notion that the chef in the kitchen has the right idea when it comes to putting food on the plate: make it taste good. By Jove, that is exactly whats done. The atmosphere is that of a pub. No flashing lights or cacophonous music. It feels more like youre among like minded people who came to have a relaxing time.
The Bronx Alehouse is by far one of the best bars I have ever been too. They have a great selection of craft beer on tap and full bar to compliment that. The food is great too. Awesome burgers and sandwiches, big salads and nachos. Everything I have tried has been amazing. The brunch menu is absolutely stunning as well. The pork belly bacon dish is a bacon lovers dream. The chicken and waffle is one of my favorite things to eat after a night out. The chicken is cooked so well I would think people from the south would approve. The Bronx Alehouse has plenty of Tvs to watch the games and a great atmosphere to go along with the awesome menu. The free popcorn is a nice touch as well.
I have been few times in this place, the staff are very friendly and helpful, the atmosphere is very good, though the music playing was a bit loud and the sitting are a bit uncountable. They also have table outside but I did not have a chance to try it because is winter. There are a lot of draft beers and they changed it very frequently. The food is very good I can recommend the Smoked Ribs a 1/2 rack house-smoked St. Louis ribs with Jerk Sauce or Bronx Alehouse BBQ sauce, very juice and delicious, the wings and French fries are pretty good. Dont Order the burger is not good. But is nice to see a quality bar in the Bronx, I will come back more often.
This is my favorite bar in the Bronx. They have a wide selection of craft beer plus mixed drinks for those who arent into beer. The food selection is great as well especially for bar food. They have various sandwiches and appetizers that will appeal to both meat eaters and vegetarians. Its great to go to with friends or even a date since it will get crowded without getting rowdy like bars downtown. The wait time is minimal for a seat but you can reserve if you call ahead which I recommend if you have a large group. Overall, Bronxites if you want a great local bar please check this place out
One of my favorite watering holes, Bronx Ale House is one part experimentation, one part fascination. The beer menu is always changing and never disappoints. The bartenders know how to mix and present drinks which might cost three to five dollars more in the city. Over the years I have watched this place grow into a very successful business, which is not surprising - excellent product, excellent staff, well managed, consistent. These are the hallmarks of every place I frequent and the reason why I often bring colleagues and friends here to enjoy a few or even a few too many!! Haha!
