More than 18 months in development, Miller’s Ale House opened its doors on July 16, 2012 and this new restaurant hopes complement the existing eateries along the bustling Route 611 corridor in Upper Moreland. The restaurant has occupancy of about 450, plus it boasts two full bars that add additional seating for patrons.
There’s also a new dimension to this particular location of Miller’s Ale House, said Anthony Rovet, regional manager, as it features two community-type tables that have about 14 stools at each one in the bar area. The outdoor dining area also adds an appealing option for dining, he said.
“The extension of the restaurant has a patio-type feel with 5-foot windows that open up, so it feels like it’s an open air room,” he said. Phil Cugliotta is the restaurant’s general manager.
The décor is just part of the story – the menu is what really is exciting. Miller’s Ale House serves lunch and dinner daily, and also features daily drink specials. “The menu has raw bar oysters and clams, to snow crabs, fish, steaks, ribs and pasta and of course our world famous Zingers which is a fresh rolled fried tender mixed with a sauce of your choice and then you top off our meal with our famous Captain Jack ice cream dessert,” said Rovet.
Rovet said the vibe of Miller’s Ale House is a casual dining experience, with sports entertainment enhancements all held together with a nautical theme. “We are value driven and we truly want people to relax and enjoy themselves,” he added. “Our team members want to have fun and embrace what our brand is a true definition of family, caring about one another; this translates into what becomes a great guest experience.”
The venture is not only good for consumers, it is a beneficial land project, said Kevin C. Spearing, Upper Moreland Township Commissioner. “Miller's Ale House is a nice addition to Upper Moreland because it is a good land use and it offers another choice to the region for dining and entertainment,” Spearing said. “It also adds a destination for people to come to Upper Moreland from other nearby areas. It is a unique type of restaurant that is inviting to a casual crowd for lunch and dinner. Nice place to watch a game and many selections for an affordable meal.”
Spearing said the restaurant’s ease of accessibility, ample parking and access to the PA Turnpike interchange will fare the business well.
