Blowing Rock Ale House and Inn
Ranked #9 of 10 Blowing Rock B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 April 2017

We decided to spend some time in Blowing Rock on our spring vacation. My husband had researched the area ahead of time and we wanted to try the Blowing Rock Ale House and some of their craft beers. We stopped in for lunch and liked it so much we decided to stay in the inn that night! The staff was super friendly and our waiter introduced us to the innkeeper who was very helpful and accommodating. The inn room was quite comfortable and we decided to eat dinner at the Ale House that evening. Loved our visit to Blowing Rock and we will definitely return to the Blowing Rock Ale House again!

Went to the Ale House because their burgers were on the top 5 restaurants for hamburgers in the area. Majorly disappointed. We arrived in the middle of the afternoon, place was busy but not packed. We had to wait 30 minutes to be seated even though there were several empty tables in the dining area. Ordered the fried oysters for an appetizer and they were very good. Hamburgers were a big disappointment. They tasted like they were originally frozen before they were cooked. They were thick and "pre-formed", you could tell they were not hand made. French fries were wimpy. Staff was friendly and service was good once seated.

Diane,
Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed by our burgers while visiting the Ale House. As a craft cuisine restaurant, our burgers are never frozen. Our meats are locally sourced through our suppliers and brought in fresh throughout the week. Many folks rave about our thicker hand patties which are always prepared in-house, daily. We would like to invite you back to the Blowing Rock Ale House and hope during your next visit we exceed your expectations.
Thank you again for your review,

Ryan Parks
Communications Manager

My husband and I always come here on the weekends. The staff and service are friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and professional. The food is very good, my favorite is the oyster bites and bison burger. Always consistent. Also, the beer is awesome, lots of choices and they have brewery tours. Big shout out to Cody, Seth, Jordan, Micki and Caroline. You all are always welcoming. Thanks for always being so fabulous. ❤

We stopped here during our anniversary trip. Place was packed, even at 3pm. We did get a seat at the tiny bar after waiting a few minutes. i was confused by how small the bar was since we were at a brewery. 10'ish seats crammed into a small room that's almost cut off from the rest of the building....which is the restaurant. Unfamiliar with their beers we ordered a flight. We have a pretty diverse palate between the two of us so we tried one of each style of beer basically. We had a hard time even finishing them because they were so unimpressive and borderline bad. I was very disappointed. The only shining light in our experience was the bartender who did a great job.

We are sorry to hear that you had a poor experience at the Ale House. Our locations began as a bed and breakfast which was converted to the Ale House and Inn once we acquired the building. We enjoy the cozy aspect of our location and hope that our patrons do as well. Our brewing styles are traditional by design and we understand that not all craft beer styles are for everyone. We hope that you will try other styles of our Blowing Rock beer and that one of our many styles may suit your palate. The Blowing Rock Ale House and Inn welcomes you to join us again for lunch or dinner. Your feedback is appreciated. ​
