824 Roosevelt Way NE

Date of visit:  January 2014

The Roosevelt Ale House is a sweet neighborhood pub with a little something for everyone:  a patio area for hot summer days, big screen TVs playing the best game available, pool tables in the pool-table area, tall chairs next to tall tables and the tall bar, and a handful of regular tables in the regular-table area.  The restaurant serves creative mixed drinks and lots of beers on tap.  The food is not fancy but always delicious.  Hamburgers, chicken strips, the house aioli, French fries, a great selection of sandwiches and fresh salads—whatever you order, you will be glad you did.  There are vegetarian and gluten free options, and the staff are gracious about requests for slight shifts in the menu. The bartender and the wait staff are cheery, attentive, and accommodating.
