In a time of phony pubs and library bars where the books are screwed to the shelves, this is the real thing. The beer is made here, it's served by people who live in the community and once you visited once or twice your regular and that means it's genuine real and totally enjoyable. The flights of beers, a free... More

Ordered the Ruben sandwich - totally awful: the bread was like dried toast that had been sitting out for an indefinite time; the sandwich seemed to be cold and was lacking taste; the homemade chips had no flavor at all (not even salt). Overall, the experience was really bad; non-attentive server until the bill came - then it was all... More

I've been here twice and each time not impressed with the food. Maybe I'm ordering the wrong things in the menu. Soup is oily and separated. Fish tacos might as well been beef tacos. Nothing resembling "fish" in them. Beer was pretty good. Unless I'm stopping in for just a beer won't return.

I can't drink beer but I love breweries and was surprised as what a nice selection of wines they had. Fun upbeat place with good food. Had hamburger which was excellent. Staff was very helpful with giving us tips in the area.

Rogue is great beer and the food is upscale pub food. Nothing special but good execution of the basics.

I tried this place a couple times during my trip to Seattle, and, let's not call a donkey a horse, it's just okay. If you like Rogue beer, then this is your place. Rogue bought Issaquah Brewery a few years ago and has allowed them to offer their own brews alongside Rogue's impressive line up of craft beers and spirits.... More

Hey, I liked the food, and the drinks were pretty good. The service was crazy. I think our waiter was handling three rooms at a time but he did a real good job with help. Anyhow, good beer, including root beer. Mahimahi fish tacos, beer cheese soup, Kobe French dip, pulled pork sliders and philly cheese steak. All were very... More

Rogue Breweries produces a great variety and quality of beers. Lots of folks come in to fill their growlers. Family atmosphere. Neighborhood feel. My only wish is for better TVs in more locations, but that's just me. Food and beer gets all your attention without the tube. Kobe beef, too! A real neighborhood pub.

Standard American grill style menu, but with an upscale quality (i.e. Kobe beef for burgers). However, the atmosphere is very laid back. Lots of beers on tap, mostly from Rouge Brewery, but also some of their own. They even have a few spirits from Rouge.

My husband and I met a friend there Friday night. We had the absolute worse service we have ever had - it's always slow, but this evening it was really slow and confusing. The food was terrible. The only redeeming thing was the White Frog. It's sad to have such a poor experience at our local brewery. Probably won't be... More
