Went there with family that were visiting from CA. It's a noisy place but expected that. The food was really good and the onion rings were "to die for". Be sure to try them! Family thought the beer was excellent. I'm not a fan so I didn't try any. They brew beer themselves so liking the beer there was a... More

A fun and popular pub style restaurant. Lots going on but not overly noisy. The service was friendly and professional. My meal of fried oysters was outstanding and they have a good selection of beer. I felt the price was very reasonable considering the quality of the meal.

First decent bicycling day and off we went to try the Fish Tale Brew Pub, having seen on Bring Fido.com that Newf Ruby will be welcome there once the outside deck opens. We had an absolutely great lunch, the kind that makes you sing Jimmy Buffett's "I wish lunch could last forever" all the way through it. Fab service by... More

We were a party of 11. Service was good considering the crowds and that it was Friday. I ordered a seafood chowder and seafood salad. Both were tasty and satisfying. Raining hard, and we had to park a couple of blocks away because lot was full. (A first world problem.) A true Olympia pub scene and place to hang out.... More

Very loud, busy, we were seated in a small table next to the waiters station. Fish taco's came wrapped with only one corn tortilla which immediately ripped, good restaurants wrap their fish taco's with two. Clam chowder was basic, maybe out of a can. Bangers dish was two English sausages, instant mashed potatoes with instant brown gravy. Stephan' the server,... More

Let's list my review items...waited 20 minutes to get in, took 30 minutes to take out order, another 30 minutes to get our food, and a handwritten note was left on our car saying the parking lot was for customers only. I suspect this is where our waitress was while we waited.

We stopped for lunch and a beer on a recent west coast trip and were happy we did. Fun setting, great selection of craft beer and good food selection. What is not to like!

Our group was "wowed" by just about everything here! The beer selection is great as is the taste of them all...the crab cakes rival some of the best I've had and the staff are hip, friendly and on top of their game.

With more than triple its original seating and a kitchen that spans the former brewing floor, the Pub offers a robust menu featuring local meat, bread, and produce. And while the Pub's 24 taps of beer and cider can present guests with a daunting selection, our knowledgeable staff will be there to help find the one that's right for you.
