“Great hidden gem beautiful inside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

What a great selection of beer, and the food is great too!
Don't let the outside of this place fool you. The inside decor is beautiful. The lights are low, creating a wonderful atmosphere for a business meeting. The fireplaces and couches creat a romantic dinner setting.
The food was excellent. Order the beer batter onion rings. They are wonderful.
The bar with the huge selection of beers is a great setting to grab a bite and a cold beer.
Our waitress, Seirieat, had a great personality and smile. Ask for her, you won't be I disappointed.

“Awesome Fish Tacos and Suds...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Fishale has an enviable list of microbrews on tap for even the most discerning beer lover, and this is what first attracted me to try out this establishment. Clearly they delivered on the beer selections from Abita and Bells to Warsteiner and Yuenling. I had the Sweetwater IPA, and was not disappointed. But don't go there just for the beer. The grub was tops as well. I had the most excellent fish tacos (on the menu as fried grouper, but the waiter happily switched this out for grilled) in the PCB area, and the rest of my party had the root beer bbq bacon cheeseburger - quite good as well as unique. We added some delightful onion rings as well as there 'beer and blue' chips - and what a meal! This one deserves a couple of return trips!

“Beer Snob Heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Came on a Tuesday night for the beer tasting (seven small glasses of various brews). Bar staff very knowledgeable and the variation of styles and types of beer is extraordinary. 65 craft beers on tap is a lot to choose from but with the help of the "brewmaster" we were able to narrow it down to our comfort zone. We ate at the bar where the fish tacos were good but not great. Eyed the buffalo wings ordered by our barmates and those looked and smelled wonderful. Came mostly for the beer so we could not really comment on the main dinner menu. Service and cleanliness were both excellent. Overall a very friendly place and we definitely will return.

“All around good place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

We went with another couple. Great beer selection. Waitress was very helpful in making suggestions about beers and offered tastes of whatever we wanted to try. Good food. We had drunken grouper and seared tuna. Lots of families there as well.

“It's all about the beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Great selection of American craft beers on tap. The food is better than average but the beers are the stars. The bartender we spoke with really knew her stuff and was happy to share her thoughts and give samples as requested. This is truly a place for "beer nerds" and neophytes as well. Very pleasant atmosphere to snack and sample your favorite brew.
