Have been here twice. Both times were consistent regarding food and service. LIKES: Decent brewpub vibe, reasonably large menu and ale selection. DISLIKES: Service both times wasn't terrible but also wasn't excellent. On our most recent dinner visit we ordered fish & chips and burgers. Both entres were unremarkable, although the burger was huge. Jo jo potatoes were underdone and... More

A gorgeous Seattle summer day and Hale's has outdoor seating. What a place to sit down and enjoy some of the NorthWest's finest craft beer along with some very tasty menu items. I enjoyed the Rockfish Fish Sandwich, served on a french baguette along with potato wedges. Washed down with a pint of Hale's Pale Ale, it made for a... More

I have eaten here a number of times and the food is always good and their selection of beers has something for everyone. The staff has always been friendly and attentive and I always seem to order something new each time which makes this place a treat to visit. Be sure to ask about seasonal beers as they usually have... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat. I guess you could call it an upscale pub but not trendy or snooty. It's been there in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle for some 30 years and very popular. I have seen people in ties, folks in lycra...(the Burke-Gilman Trail is next door) bikers and, grandmas. A darn good menu.... More

I have eaten out a lot and have NEVER had such poor service in my life. Two of out plates were dropped on their way to the table. We had to ask for water, ask for cutlery, ask for more water, napkins, ketchup. After 3/4 of our large group (we did make a reservation ahead so they knew we were... More

I didnt go for the food I went for the beer. So good. I had the Troll stout and it was delicious. It was a good place that the locals seemed to flock to.

Us country folk cannot always find a place to park. Fremont is fun to walk about in but Hales has a bit of parking. Decent pub food, lots of beer choices. We have been back several times.

This is a nice restaurant for a family meal (look for the family section) and a nice spot for a meal and conversation with a friend (look for the bar section). The managers keep the volume of music down in the bar section so that one can hear one's conversation during a meal. The food is wholesome and there is... More

I see that this place hasn't been reviewed for quite a while. We stopped in here to eat after geocaching around the area. The only reason we stopped was because of this to support the businesses. Service was pretty bad as we sat there for 10 minutes before anyone came close to help us. Finally as we were about to... More
