Stopped today on my birthday because of a big sign out front that says you eat free on your birthday. I am not the cheap sort - I was going to spend some time and money on other things at the bar too - including a nice big tip for the bartender. Just to be sure I didn't run afoul of any rules for the free meal i decided to ask before eating vs. waiting till the end.

It was then I was told "well you only can get a free meal if there is another meal on the check" As in, the sign out front is a great big lie!

If they are comfortable with such bait and switch on that level it makes me wonder about the food being as advertised too.

One good thing - she had already poured me a beer that I got to leave on the bar - waste my time, waste your beer. DON't GO!

This is a relaxed and comfortable restaurant with good food and good bar with beer and appetizers. Local place with a good reputation and its is easy to get to and plenty of parking.

I go to the Ale House fairly often. I am usually very impressed by the food. However, the last time I went I was literally appauled and disgusted at the food. I went there to have a great dinner but I was served breaded chicken with Chicken Noodle Soup as gravy. There were literally tiny squares of chicken on top of my soggy chicken that was supposed to be crispy...and that sat on a bed of INSTANT POTATOES, with some oddly bright neon green beans next to that. I've had mashed potatoes there before and they were fresh! I had some skin in my potatoes before but this time they were bright white and pasty!! what happened Ale House?!?! Did you fire the great cook?!?! this was wednesday night the first night you had the trivia night....i'd fire the cook!!

I was there last week and had the buffalo chicken dip. It was out of this world! The salads are enormous and fresh as can be. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I've never been disappointed. The portions are huge and the quality is excellent. There's no downside to the Abington Ale House, other than the noise if you're looking for peace and quiet. It can get packed here.

A friend invited me to the Abington Ale House, I had never been there before and what a surprise! The landscaping was absolutely beautiful, they had a great outside deck where you could eat dinner and enjoy some drinks. I had a lobster roll that was great, tons of fresh lobster and the roll was extreemly fresh. My boyfriend had a salmon special that he also said was great, it looked delicious. My friend that invited us ordered a chicken broccoli and ziti and said it was delicious. Overall the food, appearance and service were great.

I was pleasantly surprised during my last visit to The Abington Ale House. I hadn't been there in years. I went there for my mother-in-law's birthday party. First off, they give everyone a free meal on their birthday. (Bring a photo ID for proof.) So that is really cool! Secondly, the waitress was super friendly and flirted with all the men at my table...my husband included...but that's ok. More importantly, the food was excellent. There were 10 of us. Not one person had a bad meal. In fact, we all loved the food. I had chicken pot pie, which was about the size of my head. And I am a fathead! One cautionary note, it was chock full of garlic. So, if you are trying to keep vampires at bay, this is the meal for you. My mother-in-law had steak for her free meal, and she adored it! And she is not an easy woman to please either. The atmosphere is neither quiet nor romantic. It truly is like a pub...kinda loud and kinda frenzied. Prices are fair, and the portions are huge. Doggie bags for sure. For a real treat, go around Halloween when they open Barrett's Haunted Mansion, which is adjacent to this restaurant. I think the restaurant owns that too. It is one HELL of an awesome haunted house! I scream my dang lungs out every Halloween there.

We had a great time there. The food was delicious, the place was immaculately clean, the service was friendly and the prices were reasonable. The atmosphere is extremely inviting and the all the artifacts and trinkets are very cool to look at. It does get busy so plan accordingly.
