Had a great dinner here with the family. The service was very good and the section for families is open and airy. The menu was above average pub fair and the brews were excellent

There are many great choices on their menu to eat and their great beer to add to it. If you live Olympia you will develope a personal favorite to come back here frequently.

Tucked away amongst the railroad tracks and potholes is this amazing brewpub. The beer will bring you in and then you will be delighted with the much better than expected food. The clam chowder is among the best in the city, a city that takes clam chowder seriously, hosting several annual contests. The bar staff and servers work very hard... More

We asked for a good brew pub recommendation at our hotel and ended up here. We expected to get typical pub-grub, but were very happy to find a much larger selection of sea food than you might expect at a typical pub. My wife and I both had fish - and it was great! The beer was also terrific. I... More

After first arriving in Washington State, we started driving to the Olympic Peninsula from the SeaTac Airport. We got off at an exit for Olympia in search of food. We did search reviews before arriving, and decided to try this restaurant. We were very pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was fun, and the staff friendly. The list of options for beverages...

While you expect good beer (I'm not a drinker so that never draws me but it does my dinner partners), the food was very good and the atmosphere is fun. Crowded at times, and they have added a family seating area so you can bring the kids while still enjoying the fun.

I love this place...it is always hoppin'... I am not a Beer lover but my friends love the variety and selection of beer served at the Fish Tail. It is reminiscent of Pub atmosphere in Dublin, Ireland. I particularly love their tray with pita, hummus, and a variety of veggies. If you are a Fish n' Chip lover...then you'll want... More

Went with a group from work, All around the food was tasty and fresh. The salad was great that accompanied my order but included carrot shavings were so long it was impossible to eat them politely. A co worker had a hard time as the fish tacos she ordered were on one tortilla not two like normal (not sure if... More

We have been coming here for years and before their expansion to include a family section we couldn't come when we wanted. All that say their family section allows us to enjoy all that the fish offers and our kids don't have to stay home. We are also able to meet with our friends who have kids and none of... More
