This is in reference to the Ale House on Kirkman Road which is right across the road from Universal Studios. Regular bar/restaurant. Serve till late night hours so great place to get food if you work late. Beer selection is average but on my last visit the had DogFish Head 60 min IPA and Stone Arrogant Bastard on tap. Friendly service and good place to watch sports. Now have an outdoor patio as well which is nice.

would have liked this when i was 21 and no idea about beer, not fair to call this an alehouse. all macros with one or two micros thrown in more good measure. HUGE place that seems too big even with a few people there. there are other, better places in orlando without needing this one. cafe tu tu tangos if you want food and beer, and the house of beer if you just want beer.

Been to this location a few times as itís only a few minutes from where I live. Typical chain pub. Typical grub and beer selection, just more beer to choose from than comparable competitors, problem is itís just more macro stuff. I once ordered a draft Boston Lager and it took me a good 15 minutes to convince the bartender that their lines must be mixed up because the beer in my glass was definitely a regular macro pale lager. Other than that incident, the service has always good. A little expensive for what you get, but thatís to be expected being across the street from Universal.

From what everyone said the food here is pretty good. The beer selection was average. Nothing that would make me go back. It was busy and hard to find a seat. The bartender was friendly, but too busy to talk about the beer selection. Nice place but gear more towards the food than the beer.

The food is just alright. Typical pub grub. Try the Big Red chicken sandwich. The beer list isnít anything special. The service is usually pretty good. Overall, a good place to catch a game and pound some session beers.

not a bad place, just not a place for people who are interested in finding new and interesting beer and food. of the oah establishments i have been to i find that to be deal. the ale house name should not neccessarily lead one to expect an interesting brew experience, and probably will not.

We asked the waitress if they had any local or hard to get beers and she told us that yuengling has a plant in Orlando so maybe that should count. That says it all. They did have a lot of taps though, just nothing particularly unusual or noteworthy. The food was decent.

Read. This is not a place for exotic beers but their food is very good. I have yet to have a plate I did not like. Wood layout with TVs around the bars. You will never see a mound of chips like their blackened chicken nachos. Their wings are the best in Orlando (order them naked). Service has always been great. My favorite (Millerís) Alehouse is located at Semoran/436 on the right as you leave the MCO airport.

Ale House... yea, anyway, stopped here on a business trip, not what we were expecting. Maybe 30 or so drafts, the most exotic being Anchor Steam and Guinness. Oh, and they had a rare Belgian, Stella. Bleh, avoid if looking for real beer. Otherwise, the food was OK, and thereís TVís everywhere, yippee...
