The Carolina Ale House concept is the better alternative to a typical sports bar with scratch-made food, high-quality bar choices, and a locally-focused, hospitable environment. Its high-energy atmosphere, especially during big game days, and the multitude of TVs makes it the ultimate meeting place for food and sports.
Carolina Ale House, established in 1999, is owned and operated by LM Restaurants (LMR). LMR was ranked the 24th Fastest Growing Private Company in the Triangle at the 2012 Triangle Business Journal’s Fast 50 Awards and 27th in the NC Mid-Market Fast 40 by Business North Carolina. It is the parent company of several award-winning restaurants on the East Coast.
