The Ladies visit the Ale House – October 15, 2013

The Ale house opens at 11:30AM on weekdays. Check out their hours of operation. We were a bit early and being that it was a warm day, we walked around downtown Gardner. We got back to the restaurant at 11:32AM, nothing like being prompt.

My mother decided that we sit at the bar, like she always does, She always thinks by sitting at the bar, our service will be faster…. Heather waited on us.

We both ordered the Lunch Special, Lobster Stuffing topped Haddock, and two non-alcoholic Iced Teas. It only took a few minutes for our meals to arrive.  We were gabbing and lost track of time. We were not in a rush and we used this time to catch up..

Heather brought out our Lobster stuffing topped haddock. OMG, it looked so good. After taking one bite, I could taste the flavors meld and marry together to form a perfect union creating the ultimate dish topped with a lemon wedge. This came with their delicious brown butter mashed potatoes, which were fluffy and mealy, not mushy.  Their vegetable of the day was green beans, I’m not a fan of green beans, but these were delicious. I’m donating my can beans as soon as I get home. The beans had a farm fresh flavor and a lovely vivid hue. The meal was very appealing and scrumptious.

Each meal was $11.00, plus tax, tip ($7.00) and drinks. Great deal for a great meal.

This was definitely a “townie” establishment because of the beer mugs hanging over the bar with names on or in them. This is obviously a sign of a great restaurant, they just keep coming back. Pretty Cool.

The Gardner Ale house has ambiance like no other place in the area. They also brew their own beer.

Give the Gardner Ale House a try. Heather, our bartender, was like a little tornado.  Great job Heather!

I haven’t lived in the Gardner, MA area for very long. I’m constantly getting lost, even with my GPS.  On one of the many times that I was lost, I drove by a pub style looking restaurant. I later found out it was The Gardner Ale house. I called the Restaurant Manager Rick and asked about their food. parking, and events.

It turns out that the Gardner Ale House is not only a restaurant, but they are famous for brewing their own beer.
