While I’ve visited Crew’s Cup Lounge at the Yacht Club on several occasions, I had yet to stop by Ale and Compass Lounge, which is located to the left off the lobby of the resort. I was exploring the resort, and decided to stop in for a beer and a peek at the menu. Ale and Compass’ menu pulls from many items that can be found at Crew’s Cup Lounge.
When you grab a seat and order a drink, you are offered a small bowl of spicy snack mix. It certainly is easy to mindless nosh away at this while enjoying a beer and chatting!
As I mentioned earlier, the items on the menu can also be found at Crew’s Cup.
Here are the wines offered in their cocktail book, as this portion of the menu tends to be resort specific.
I ordered the House-cut Truffle Fries with Roasted Shallot Mayonnaise and Shredded Parmesan Cheese. I had tried these at Crew’s Cup before, and was a bit disappointed. This execution turned out slightly better, but I could tell they had been sitting for a while after I ordered them as it took the bartender several minutes to retrieve them after what seemed like a longer than normal wait for fries.
The Roasted Shallot Mayonnaise was still quite good, and helped to make up every so slightly for the quickly cooling fries.
I packed up the remainder to bring home for Matt, and this time around, he really liked the mayonnaise with the fries. Although, I may have referred to it as aioli when I told him what it was… 😉
Whether it’s at Ale and Compass or Crew’s cup, I look forward to trying a couple other items on the menu. Do you ever visit Ale and Compass? Have you tried any of the food there? What did you think?
