The Fish tale Brewpub is true the Olympia dining experience. Organic options and locally brewed beers and ciders will make your visit a classic. I have attended many a social gathering, trivia, brunch, and nightlife events at this location and it serves so many purposes. The bangers and mash are Delish. It was also featured in Diners, Drive ins and... More

Fish Tale is a great place to meet people you know to talk ,eat and have a beer. Even if you just met them at the bar. I'm not sure what it is about the bar there, but I almost always meet at least one interesting person and have a great conversation. The beer is very good. My favorites are... More

So you'll stop in on a slow Saturday, order breakfast and why not have a pint, it's the weekend you deserve it. Careful tho after that first pint it's really easy to have a second and it's around this time you realize this is all some evil plot. Yes, your innocent looking wife has now talked to into remolding the... More

Cozy bar with good beer! The bar has a very comfortable, simple feel to it. The menu has pre-selected beer flights and you can also recreate your own. Good beer and cider options. Food was great! We had the turkey sandwich and fish//chips -- both were delicious. Although it was busy, Fish Tale wasn't packed enough to warrant 'ok' service.... More

We have been here a few times now, always excellent beers, really good food, and friendly relaxed staff. We enjoyed a good size stack of quality onion rings (not over battered). I had a very respectable portion of Fish-n-Chips, my Wife had the Fish Tacos, and really enjoyed them. Expect a relaxed atmosphere, but don't expect to get in and... More

Lovely little eatery/brewery. I always get the fish and chips and have sampled many different brews, all delicious, especially when the weather is nice enough to sit outside. FYI, no kids allowed.

In the middle of a nondescript block, getting to the Fish Tale may involve a couple wrong turns and possibly even trying to enter the brewery across the street. The fact that Jefferson ends a few feet away and then starts again up the hill doesn't help. That said, make the effort! The food is pub fare tweaked for the... More

What to do on a sunny afternoon after the shopping is done? Kick back and relax at this no frills pub restaurant the beer selection is excellent and the food is hearty pub fare. The pub also has live entertainment and special events. The staff and clientele are real people who make you feel at home.

Fish Tale is one of the local hot spots for craft beers and tasty foods just a great place to kick back and enjoy the atmosphere filled with local people of Olympia which includes some of our local government stopping by for a quick bite after a hard day at the capital. If you are looking the Evergreen experience you'll... More
