The other night I visited George Street Ale House in New Brunswick, NJ. I'd been here a few times before, but not in quite sometime. The place was pretty busy, but not packed for a Saturday night. There had been a Rutgers football game earlier in the day, so there were still some stragglers left over from that. My boyfriend and I made a reservation and were seated right away. Our service was a little slow to begin with, but after we placed our orders for food, it definitely picked up a little bit. We were seated in the bar area and not the downstairs seating area so the wait service was a little different than a traditional restaurant, as we had many different waiters and waitresses coming to check up on us.
For an appetizer we ordered the Nachos Grande. My boyfriend and I absolutely love nachos, so we were really excited for this appetizer. The nachos were covered in a cheese sauce, onions, pico de gallo, steak chili, jalapenos and sour cream. Only negative of the nachos is that I wish they were covered in real cheese rather than a cheese sauce. The steak chili, however, is phenomenal. You can definitely tell the difference from a standard beef chili and it really makes the nachos so much better.
Overall, the George Street Ale House is you're typical Gastropub with some interesting twists on the menu items. The bar, in my opinion, doesn't look too enticing from the outside, but the inside is nicely furnished and has a great atmosphere. Additionally, it has a great beer selection with some of the more unusual beers on tap. I'd say it's a great place for a casual dinner or a night out for drinks. I'll definitely be back!
