I love Fish Tale. You need to try Pear cider. Dunkelweizen is great also. Try the Bangers and Mash. I like them in Ireland. But these are good. My favorite is the Cubano.

Great local brew pub. Serves beers and ciders from their own brewery as well as a sister brewery in Leavenworth. Order a sampler to find your favorite. Great seafood stew and fish and chips as well.

Wow, did it take so long for me to get here. Me and my son went here for dinner last week after a work meeting. I am so glad I did, we got seated right away, ordered a sample flight of beer, and couldn't decide what to eat, too many great choices. Decided on the burger with onion rings. Wow,... More

Met here with high school friends from Oregon we haven't seen in 40 years.. If looking for a taste of spontaneous , sometimes quirky people, this is the place- Set in the heart of Olympia, the food is excellent ... the waiters/waitresses are real Olympians from all walks of life- They also have one of the finest beer selections from...

Come here for the beer, which is excellent of course. The food selection is extremely limited, even by pub or brewery standards. The portions were nice but our burger was totally overcooked. Excellent fries though. The service was courteous.

This used to be a go-to spot for us. Excellent food and beer. If you go, and aren't with a big group, or kids, sit in the bar area. Great American fare, great brunch. But if you are with your family and have to sit outside of the bar area, man, oh man... 100% of the time it takes forever... More

We've enjoyed Fish Tale for years, and its current incarnation is a good one. The staff is quick, friendly and professional and the new menu (I'm old - they probably changed it a year ago but we're creatures of habit...) is good. I still miss a couple of old menu items but the new ones have been really tasty. Himself... More

We spent a few days in the area and tried this place for breakfast the first day, and later went back for dinner and to try the Beer. Breakfast was just sub par, generic and not a whole lot of flavor. Bloody Mary's tasted weak and watered down. Server was excellent however. Dinner we did a flight and some pints,... More
