Best Sandwiches, 2014:
The sandwich menu at Washington Street Ale House features anything but the usual suspects. The Cubano stays faithful to the Cubans you first encountered in South Florida. Seared tuna with wasabi aïoli is a great alternative to your run-of-the-mill crab cake. Crispy jalapeños and flatbread transform pulled pork.

From 2011:
The Ale House hits mainstream tastes with standards such as Yuengling and Smithwick’s, but we’re glad to see local brews from Dogfish Head and Twin Lakes.

From 2010:
Here’s a novel idea: a legit pub atmosphere (lots of brick, wooden floors and exposed ceilings) and a selection of about two dozen great beers. There’s never anything too wacky among the regulars and seasonals from microbrews like Dogfish Head, Harpoon, Victory, Magic Hat and Boddington’s. Throw in a solid late-night menu. It’s no wonder Washington Street Ale House is packed most nights.

From 2009:
Fine dining is one thing, but it’s just plain creative to elevate chicken and waffles to the masterpiece of a curry Belgian waffle topped with crispy tandoori chicken pieces and a sweet-spicy mango chutney. Washington St. Ale House has it wired. Even burgers get flipped into new realms when topped with Thai chili paste and smoked Gouda.
