Not for me

Some places you go to and you don't understand why other people don't like it. Just doesn't make sense. I know this is one of them for me. Not impressed with the food at all. Been multiple times. Also not a big craft brew guy so it's not my kind of spot.

Stopped here to catch up with a relative I have not seen in 30 years! This Brewery was his recommendation. We parked across the street in the library lot (which I did not know at the time), because street parking was tight and limited. We sat outside and were served immediately. The waitress was friendly but did let us know... More

We started coming here since before it was owned by Rogue, when it was the Issaquah Brewhouse. It's had its ups and downs, but we keep coming back for the excellent range of beer on tap, the fun atmosphere, the friendly wait staff and bartender, and the nearly always great food. A group of us always came here to celebrate... More

The service here consistently SUCKS, BUT the Kobe beef burgers, fresh cut fries and great selection of microbrews keep me coming back time and time again!It's what I order every time (I actually crave that meal!). I've also tried the hummus platter (good) and house salad (real good). Definitely go- just significantly lower your standards for service and you won't... More

Not that keen on the atmosphere or choice of beer, but the grilled salmon sandwich with dill sauce was the best.

I've never really been excited about this place. Not sure why. Seems to me as though (at least the last time I went there) that all they had was beer brewed by Rogue Brewery. Not one of my favorite brands. Food was okay, but nothing special. That said, on occasions like The annual Salmon DaysFestival, it's about the only place... More

The Issaquah Brewhouse (that's the name now) was a favorite post-hike stop for a friend of mine, but I had never been there. So I finally stopped in for dinner and a beer. The beer was good, and the atmosphere was OK, typical for a brewpub. But the service was lousy, and the food unremarkable, in small tasteless portion sizes.... More

Disappointed they eliminated the BLT sandwich off the menu recently. Maybe they should take one of the 3 different orders of fish and chips off the menu to add back the BLT. PS: the albacore fish and chips is awful, I sent it back and refused to eat it.

The point is it was Friday night. As a food server (or whatever these people are striving to be) you live for Friday and Saturday night! Normally on a busy night a small party (3) can just sit at the bar. NOT THIS BAR. The bartenders were angry about something and not a hello, go boink yourself NOTHING. Pushing on... More
