The scratch kitchen menu is amazing!

My favorite meal at Harry’s Alehouse is the Sweet Potato Quinoa Bowl. It’s a hearty and healthy dish that consists of cilantro-jalapeno sweet potatoes, black bean corn salsa, white quinoa, and a tasty arugula chimichurri sauce. You can add chicken or salmon to it, but I prefer the salmon because it’s so tender and flavorful. The bowl is filling but not heavy, and it has a nice balance of sweet and savory. It’s perfect for someone with dietary restrictions as it is gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan if you don’t add meat.

Some other items that I recommend from the menu are:

– The Guac Burger: This is a juicy burger topped with guacamole, bacon, sliced tomato, and pepper jack cheese. It comes with fries, and they are amazing with malt vinegar!. The burger is cooked to order and has a nice flavor from the bacon and guacamole. Also, look for the burger of the week, a new creative take on the burger every week of the year!

– The Chicken & Waffles: This is a classic Southern dish that consists of fried chicken tenders on top of a Belgian waffles, chicken tenders, sweet potatoes, ancho chili syrup. The chicken is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, and the waffle is fluffy and soft. The sweet potatoes and ancho chili syrup are such a cool twist, making this a unique version of a classic. This is a great dish for brunch or when you want something indulgent.

– The Carnitas Tacos: seasoned pork shoulder, salsa verde, onion-cilantro mix, and queso fresco. The carnitas are tender and juicy, and the toppings add freshness and creaminess. Definitely check out their shrimp tacos too!

The kid’s menu will make you LOL 🤣

– The Kid’s Menu: Harry’s Alehouse has a hilarious kid’s menu that features dishes named after common phrases that kids say when they don’t want to eat. For example, there is “I Don’t Know,” which is homemade mac & cheese; “I Don’t Care,” which is kids flatbread pizza; “I Don’t Want To Be Here,” which is kids chicken quesadilla; “I’m Not Hungry,” which is kids cheeseburger; and “I Don’t Want This,” which is mini chicken tenders. These dishes are all kid-friendly and tasty, and they come with fries or fruit. I think this is a clever way to make eating fun for kids (and adults).

So if you are ever in Fredericksburg, VA, I highly recommend you check out Harry’s Alehouse. It’s a great place to enjoy good food, good drinks, and good company. Remember to bring a copy of your dog photo the next time you go to Harry’s. Who knows, you might spot it on the wall next time!
