Default Miller's Ale House?

Can anyone fill me in?

There's one of these opening not far from my house. It seems like a run of the mill wannabe-beer place, but they have a "local beer lists will vary" disclaimer on their site.

we have them down here - several in a 60 mile radius. they usually have a large variety menu and a lot appetizer type dish's. Usually they have most of the commercial brews as well as local craft brews they can get access to put them on tap.

Yeah they're nothing special, kind of a glorified sports bar. Food is mediocre and the beer selection is fine but nothing great. They're a dime a dozen here in the south. Maybe you'll get lucky and they'll have an okay local beer selection though.

One opening in Paramus, NJ shortly. Had the same questions and came to the same sort of conclusion upon googling. I'll probably check it out once though.

I've been to a few different locations of these ale houses and they vary quite a bit from place to place. I tend to think of them as a step up from bw3...

Looks like it's at least worth a shot. I'm not sure when it's opening exactly, but they seem to be trying o build the entire shopping center as fast as possible.

We have one in Boston and the food and service is pretty mediocre. The people that work there are clueless and have served us beer AND food we did not order. Luckily we have other options, but they have an ok beer selection.
