Mystery Diner Review of the Craft Ale House, Limerick, PA
On Friday, September 25th, I had dinner at the Craft Ale House in Limerick with 4 friends. This was my first visit so I was full of anticipation having heard good things. The restaurant was full!
We were seated fairly quickly at a nice table in the back of the restaurant. Our server Kate was very attentive and pleasant. She was familiar with the menu and vast beer selection.
The food is prepared to order but came in a reasonable amount of time. While we waited for our entrees, we were given bread and butter. The bread is made on the premises from the leftover hops used in the brewing process. It was very good!
Three of us ordered the fish and chips. Two others ordered the soup of the day, along with perogies and tempura shrimp.
The fish and chips were plentiful and delicious. Three generous pieces of moist and flakey Cod were accompanied by a mountain of fries. Nothing was greasy! No old oil taste! The fries were mildly seasoned for enhanced flavor. The fish was batter dipped and tasty.
The soup of the day was sweet potato. I was offered a taste and I must say it was excellent. Again a generous “cup” of soup was served equaling a nice sized mug. One of my friends had considered licking the bowl, but refrained.
The three nice sized perogies were accompanied by salad. The three jumbo tempura shrimp came with some unusual coleslaw. Again, they were gobbled up with delight! The perogies and tempura shrimp are appetizers, not entrees.
We only tried two desserts since everyone wasn’t in the mood or didn’t have room. I ordered the homemade Tiramisu which scored a 10! Nice size piece and reasonable price for dessert. Another friend ordered the homemade doughnuts which were coated with cinnamon sugar right out of the fryer and came with vanilla ice cream and peaches. That was described as “a little bit of heaven.”
One person also had a beer which they thoroughly enjoyed. Samples are provided to aid in decision making.
Our bill came to not quite $90.00 for five people to have dinner which I felt was very reasonable based on the atmosphere, food quality, food quantity and service.
I highly recommend this restaurant based on our experience. The Craft Ale House offers a nice variety on their menu and if you enjoy beer, they have over 300 varieties!!
