Stopped in this past Sunday noon with a large group of family (10 of us). I had their pulled pork sandwich (smoked pork shoulder, coleslaw, house BBQ sauce on a Kaiser roll), plus french fries on the side.

This is the place to bring friends and family when they come from out of town. Eclectic and classy, a menu like few others with brews an ciders for the discerning foodies. I had the brie with pear slices on sourdough. Very satisfying and a one of a kind sweet savory taste.

We always enjoy taking out of town guests to Fish Tale Brew Pub. The have great food and a variety of local brewed beer that is tough to beat. We have yet to be disappointed in either the service or the food. We would recommend this to anyone who want to explore local food and beverages!!

They have a wide variety of their own beers on tap, it was a great atmosphere to hang with friends. Food was eatable, nothing to write home about.

Okay I love beer and I love food. I went here 3 times in 10 days. Shrimp and grits were great! Oysters we good. Salad was outstanding. Beer was better than average. Service and staff were okay. Took the whole family one night and survived without any incidents with 4 kids.

Food was mediocre so was service and to top it off there were an incredible amount of flies. Definitely won't return.

We came for dinner. It was busy, but they had plenty of servers. We had the Fish Tacos and the Salmon Salad, both were excellent with a fresh local taste. I had the Organic IPA which was a very nice compliment to the meal. If you want a local restaurant with great food, you have to try this one.

Fish Tale is a good, solid choice in downtown. The food is local when possible(mostly?), freshly prepared, and the fish and chips are the best in Oly. The beer is Northwest solid (which is way above average for other spots on the map :) ) Definitely recommended
