Conveniently located in downtown Olympia and featuring rare adjacent parking, this popular brew pub restaurant is casual. It features a great assortment of locally brewed beer. As a occasional beer drinker, it has to be good for me to try it and I have yet to be disappointed. The food has been consistently tasty and while a little on the... More

A fun place to gather for a true pub experience in downtown Olympia. Good food and beverage created on the spot. The only complaint I have is it can get a bit noisy during peak business hours....if you want or like pub food I think you will love this place

Hands down my family's favorite spot now for good drinks with a welcoming environment for families. We were long time fans before but now have a new appreciation because we don't have to find a sitter to enjoy all they have to offer.

We came to this restaurant by accident. Our original choice was a Mexican restaurant on the corner. As we were scouting the restaurant out, we noticed the Fish Tale Brew Pub next door. This restaurant with a patio looked busy whereas there were maybe 2 customers at the Mexican restaurant. For a Tuesday night around 7:30 PM, the restaurant was... More

Met my family half way between Vancouver and Kent for lunch. Great beer selection. Lunch was wonderful. Burgers, seafood and sandwiches. We had the ability to tie up the table for awhile as we met around 1 and it was great to sit and visit.

Walked in to see about a table for a family of 13, the host abruptly stated he couldn't do it now and it would be at least an hour, and turned away. I tried to catch him to say we would take separate tables, however he walked away while I was in mid-sentence. Very disappointed. I am a Seattle native... More

The French fries were great. The chowder was great too. I had the fish tacos. They were overflowing with goodness. Would go back and would recommend.

We were heading south on I-5 after spending Sunday afternoon in Seattle at Pike's Market. We left the market too early for dinner so by the time we reached Olympia, the kids were hungry. We were all craving seafood because of where we spent the day... so I went to Trip Advisor and searched seafood restaurants in Olympia... my youngest... More

We recently my husband's brother and wife for dinner here. The restaurant wasn't so busy when we first arrived at 5 p.m. but soon after was full! The service was excellent. It was a very casual and comfortable atmosphere and it appeared that most of the patrons were enjoying themselves. All 4 of us ordered the fish & chips and... More

My brother took me here while I was visiting. It is awesome. The special was a smoked chicken with mac and cheese with blue cheese crumbles. The meal was fantastic.... loved the chicken and the mac an cheese. Topped it off with a Pear Cider which is a light hard cider. Very tasty! My niece got the garlic fries with... More
