We celebrated my wife’s birthday along with a large group of friends, including one couple’s young grandson. The food and service were both very good, as was the craft beer brewed on-site.

Varied menu with breakfast and lunch option. Brew pub for those wanting ale. Fish and chips good, not greasy, good white fish meat. Hubby had biscuits and gravy with very good bacon side. Good service. Decor is simple, bit gaudy.

Stopped in for a beer and food with friends. Beer was good as was the food. A nice atmosphere for hanging out with friends in a relaxed atmosphere.

We go to Olympia once or twice a year to pay our respects to our fallen comrades from WWI, WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. We always stop at the Fish Tale Brew Pub for some great fish and chips and beer. Friendly staff, good patrons.

Salmon something. It was great. Everyone loved it. I didn't get the deposit back, still trying to figure out what happened with that. Haven't eaten anything at the restaurant. But buy beer for parties...

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.
