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

I dropped into this lively place for a drink and ended up having the most delicious oysters. They were incredibly fresh and flavorful. Plus, the service was great despite how busy it was. I would definitely go back to sample more of what they had on the menu.

Great selection of beers. Food is decent. Friendly atmosphere. Gets crowded so table may be hard to get especially on Friday nights

I try to stop here for happy hour whenever I can. Great, fresh oyster shooters and a discounted pint. Always good service, friendly staff. Nice little pub.

Large selection of brews. Hodgson's Bitter End IPA goes great with the Brewer's Steak! Winterfish IPA is really a great Ale. Only wish they might consider serving their IPAs at room temperature as they do in England. Brewer's Steak is so flavorful I had to go back for a second visit during my one week visit to Olympia. The Bangers... More

We brought my sister and brother-in-law with us today, and everyone enjoyed the experience. When we walked in, someone was right there to show us the open tables so we could choose; I like that. Fish Tale has an open airy room near the bar; there's a separate room where you can come with kids and enjoy the food. Today... More
