The beer here is extremely good, especially the stout! The food was fine, though nothing special. Take the time to walk around the brewing facility inside. You'll see "open" fermentation - different from most brewhouses. Since this is one of the first craft brewers, going back to 1983, it's worth a visit and a pint just for that!

This place was packed and I'm not sure why. It was okay, but not wonderful. It was very noisy and the beer mediocre.

So, I waited to write this review until I went back, just to make sure it wasn't me that was having a bad day. I have been back three times and it simply seems that the staff there don't enjoy their jobs. There is no conversation, small talk, beer conversation or any of the fun stuff you'd expect. The beer...

The first time I met friends, they ordered for me, food was great! I had really little interaction with the waiter so had no idea.... The second time I came with my entire family. We walked in, seated ourselves and waited there for 5 minutes. The waitress walked all around us but took her forever to say anything. We came... More

Decent atmosphere, typical pub feel. The true treasure is the HSB burger! Grilled onions, Beechers cheese, avocado, bacon... Drooling just thinking about it! I would come back to Seattle just to get that burger.

None of the beers we tried blew our socks off, it was all merely average and nothing I would put on my "favorites" list. Food was what you would expect at a brewpub. Again, nothing spectacular, just average. I liked being able to view the brewery operation. Won't go back soon, too many other places to try in Seattle, to... More

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
