Update 2.13: As commenter CJ notes below, Garrett Hill Ale House is now under new management, and the menus are very different than originally reported. Great tap list includes a wide variety of local and national craft beers, plus some interesting sample flights and an impressive bottle list. Food is upscale and innovative pub grub such as duck confit sliders and braised rabbit cavatelli. Sounds delicious!
The Kebob Factory in Garrett Hill is no longer, and will be replaced by Garrett Hill Ale House starting Friday, March 23rd, 2012.
Readers may recall the 2011 controversy surrounding Factory owner Bharat Luthra, who supposedly cut down as many as 45 trees on the former Villa Strafford property without permission or a replacement plan for the sound buffer and runoff aid they provided.
One wonders if the potential fine of $2K per tree might have had any influence on the closing of Kebob Factory, though reports that it was always empty probably have more to do with it. While we never would root against the success of an independent business, we won’t be shedding any tears for a man with such disregard for the community he serves.
[outdated info] As for the Ale House, they’ll offer straightforward American bar food, including “tot”chos (yep, tater tot nachos), sandwiches mostly made of hand-carved meats, and “house specialty” ribs… nothing too exciting. For booze, their all-American list includes 20 taps (with a disappointing half being macros – do you really need Bud Light, Coors Light AND Miller Lite on draft?). Full menu, including a decent list of hard liquors and an awful wine selection. [end outdated info]
