Once again I found myself with time for lunch between appointments, so I paid a visit to Miller’s Ale House in Lake Grove. This is one of 83 locations in twelve states, with more on the way. Their website describes this venue as, “…a casual sports restaurant and bar with freshly made food at an incredible value.” If my lunch salad was any indication of what they mean by “incredible value”, they are correct! It was delicious! If brews are your thing, they have 75 kinds of cold brews!
The large, paved lot has three handicapped (van)- accessible spaces directly across from the street-level, double-door, main entrance. The vestibule has a small benche on each side. Another set of double doors lead to the host/hostess area. The seating in the waiting area to the left is a nice touch.
This is a large venue, large enough to accommodate two large u-shaped, full-height bars in two separate areas with lots of TVs above. The bar/lounge areas also have high tables and stools. Besides the bars, the seating areas have a combination of high and low tables, as well as large booths. Wood and tile on the floors, along with ample space between tables make for easy navigation. Since there seem to be more high tables than low, if you want a low one, ask when you arrive.
My server was lovely and efficient. When I told her that I had a limited amount of time, she said, “No worries.” She was right. My order was brought to the table quickly and was perfect, exactly as I had asked for it. My server returned several times to make sure that all was OK. All in all a great place for lunch.
Large, multi-stall, restrooms with a large, handicapped-stall and baby-changing station are located in the rear of the main dining area.
As always, we at Destination Accessible, advise you to check a venue’s website, http://www.millersalehouse.com, when planning a visit, to know before you go.
