Miller's Ale House
615 Baltimore Pike, Bel Air, MD 21014
Today I went to Miller's Ale House with my buddies to watch some Sunday Football. Got there at around 12:15 PM thinking it might be crowded as compared to weekday nights where there is about a 45 minute wait. Sunday wasn't a problem, they sat us right away, a good thing.
I had come here with my daughter and it was ok, the food portions then was enormous. If you like enormous portions then this is the place to go. I on the other hand prefer tasty food of average portions.
I ordered the tropical punch cocktail instead of beer. Now, I must confess that I'm not a drinker but the amount of alcohol in this drink was so strong, I ended up sipping the drink little by little barely, I know the establishment is banking on providing the best drinks but in my opinion, they went way over the top. Now there may be some that prefer it this way but I do not. I ended up getting a Diet Coke.
All 4 of us shared the nachos as a shared appetizer. To me it was all thrown together and didn't appear to be fresh or it was microwaved and left sitting until pickup.
The reason I say this because I ordered baby back ribs and it was cold. Complained to the server and they heated it up but the ribs were nothing to brag about. My friend ordered the chicken wings with old bay, 10 chicken wings, too much, he had left overs. His wife had a salad, it was 2 platters put together into 1 big platter, too much for her to finish. The bottom line is if you want a good selections of beer and drinks and enjoy surround TV's all over, this is the place. For us 4 friends, we could have shared the one salad, the chicken wings and the ribs and saved money.
My rating is as follows:
Staff: 2 stars
Gave excuses as to why we didn't get the attention. That's not our concern, its management.
Food: 1 star
If you want enormous quantity then this is the place, but for us it was way too much and no flavor.
Overall rating: 2 stars
