Ale House opens for lunch
Another burger, brew and more lunch option is now available in downtown Huntington.
Huntington Ale House, 1318 4th Ave., started opening its doors to the lunch crowd in June. The decision to start extend hours and services from 11 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. Tuesday-Saturday has been a good one, said Mackie Robertson, owner and house chef.
“People had been telling me for a while I should open up for lunch, so I did,” Robertson said. “When I first opened this place I envisioned a bar, because that’s I’d been doing for years, but now we move more food than alcohol.” Robertson said despite the Ale House’s proximity to Marshall University, his main crowd sit somewhere in the 35-45 range. He said the restaurant has a “Cheers” atmosphere, a place where people can get together and enjoy the company. Robertson said this is important to him because he wants Ale House to be more than just a place to drink, he wants it to be a true part of the community.
Huntington Ale House has around 90 beers available, with 17 of those on tap. The menu offers a variety of food from more than 15 types of burgers to grilled salmon. Those seeking more information can call 304-522-2573 or visit www.huntingtonale.com.
