Great beer, good food

Good food, great beer, good service. I don't like the fact that you can't bring kids in, at least to a certain time. We don't go as often due to kids, but would love to. Atmosphere can be a bit loud, for good conversation.

This is a fun, casual yummy place to meet up with friends. They have many craft beers and ciders. The food is outstanding. Fish Taco's are wonderful. Salads are always fresh and delicious.

I dropped in after work to do some homework and enjoy some food & drink. I ordered and uh-oh... no wifi. My quesadilla was decent, my drinks were delicious. Construction and no wifi drag down the vibe for me though.

Outside seating available if you don't want construction noise mixed with your table talk. But look, this place can pull me in with their menu, but craft beer snobs beware, you would be in Mecca. Brewery across the street. Very accommodating- hey, I'm a tourist- they scrounged in their depleted t-shirt inventory to find my size. Lord willing, we will... More

This is the second time we've eaten here, the first a couple of years ago. I hate to say this, but I think the restaurant side of the house is resting on it's "Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives" laurels. The beer my wife had, one of their IPAs, was judged to be outstanding and I had a decent Arnold Palmer.... More

The outside of the building does not reflect inside. Lots of rooms with different types os seating, including an unstairs and great for large groups. Good service, fast and friendly. The menu has good beer and food options. There was only one out of three tv's on, not sure if they were working or just turned off. Big parking lot... More

Decided to try out Fish Tale and have it be my first restaurant I visited after seeing it on Triple D. Unfortunately, I was rather disappointed. The menu was smaller, and did not have items on it that others had recommended for me. I got the fish and chips, and I've honestly had better at Skippers.

Interesting place near the capitol, had good service and the food was very good - beers were very good too. I've been here a couple times in the past and was not disappointed.

Great beer and food! Most brew pubs concentrate only on the beer and the food is sub par.......fish tale delivers on both!!! My husband had the salmon quesadilla and I had the fish and chips - both were excellent. Highly recommend you try it if you are in the area!
