The Ale House: "Good for what ales you" Grand Junction Restaurant Tip by goodfish

Grand Junction Restaurants: 12 reviews and 11 photos

We had a good time at this place on the 2004 trip and were pleased to find it still going strong in 2011. It's a biggish establishment with a dignified pool room, bar, open dining areas and patio, and was teeming with locals on both of our visits. In the warmer months that patio is the star: part covered, part open to the sun, and bordered by a lawn with adirondack chairs scattered about for lounging with your brew.

The menu ranges from appetizers to entrees with sandwiches and pizza in between. The Husband had a brie-and-apple chicken flatbread sammie with sweet potato fries, and I went for comfort food in the form of a light, puff-pastry chicken pot pie with a side salad (no iceberg!) Yummy. I can't recall what we ate there 7 years earlier but we remember it was good too.

Beers on tap include Breckenridge craft brews and host of other regional and national brands. Happy hour specials are from 4:00 - 6:00 PM, and 10:00 - 12:00 PM and they're rumored to have live music some nights.

Sandwiches, $10.00 and under; 20" pizzas, $20 and under; entrees, $28.00 and under. Family friendly.
