Interesting place with good food and very good beer

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.

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.

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!

The place does not look like anything special, however the food and beer was great. The staff were very friendly as well. If you ever find yourself in Olympia, eat here.

The specials change frequently. Last night, I had the shrimp and grits with andouille sausage. The flavorful, spicy saucy contrasted beautifully with the creamy grits. I loved it. My husband had the lamb poutine: a pile of their excellent fries, with freshly grated fontina and savory gravy. While he would have liked more meat, he thought it was delicious. I... More

Breakfast was perfect. Poached eggs on rye with a to-die-for rarebit sauce (mascarpone and cheddar) and the eggs were perfectly poached! Julia would have been proud! Try the dark and dry with orange juice!!

If you want a nice selection of micro brews...this works. If you want to talk and listen...this does not work. If you want bar food...this works. If you want quality selection of food...this does not work. If you want to stop on and get a growler..this works. It is a hang out for locals from every walk of life...particularly working... More

I've enjoyed enjoyed a Saturday brunch and an afternoon lunch at Fish Tale. I liked the menu selections and the servers were courteous and prompt.
