Run down place in the ass-end of nowhere. Rogue junk on tap. That Oregasmic made me gag. Food is typical of the company, though the staff were nicer here than any of the other rogue establishments I have visited.
This is the local stop for myself. Dirty, smelly brewery that is overpriced and the food is below par. That being said they have almost all rogue beers available on tap and a good selection of guest beers. The garage sales canít be missed as it is the only time you can get a bottle selection without being robbed. Staff is very knowledgeable and always willing to let you taste. For all the faults with this place I still come back weekly.
Came here for some lunch. Bartender was very generous with free samples. Great selection of Rogue specialties, including many from the XS series, as well as many great guest brews (Pliny the Elder, Hercules Double IPA, etc.). The food was your standard pub affair, though quite delicious. Iíd come back if in the area.
My girlfriend and I ended up here to meet a few friends on my birthday [beer] trip up to Washington. It definitely had a nice cozy feeling to it. Not too busy and the staff was very friendly. Unfortunately I never tried any of the Issaquah brews while there, I ended up getting stuck on the many Rogue brews they had on tap. My girl started off with a flight of 4 - Double Dead Guy, Chocolate Stout, Mocha Porter, and the Red. I ended up getting a couple pints - The Rogue Charlie 1981 and Old Crustacean ( one of my favorites from Rogue) Everything tasted fresh and delicious. Our food was amazing. I got their baked mac and cheese, one of my favorite brewpub foods. The service was great and the waitress later informed me that since it was my birthday, I could sign up for the "Rogue Nation" and receive a free t-shirt(my choice) and 2 free pints(also my choice) right then and there. That made my night! I left with a brand new Rogue T-shirt, and 2 of my pints were free! All in all a great place, I would definitely return in the future.
A first class brewpub for a cool niche town. Small but friendly, this is must see for anyone like myself who happen to be visiting Issaquah.
The Rogue and local brew is varied and delcious. Pub food and friendly atmosphere make this a great little visit.

This was my first time at this Rogue so I was not sure what to expect. They had a very nice selection of beers on tap and the food was the regular Rogue pub food. The service was nice and pleasant. We where able to bring the kid into the pub and she liked the French fries. Was also able to buy several of the off styles in the bottle so I can check them out at my leisure. They have a sample tray of 4 which does not do it justice I must try to get more next time. Rogue found a nice niche up in Issaquah WA. They got a huge sports bar area if needed and the brewery is right there. Check out some of the different brands they got some good stuff. They may even start Micro Distilling in the near future.
Visited on a weekday afternoon. It was virtually empty, so service was very good. Typical pub type atmosphere. Nothing that sets it apart. 15 or so taps the day I visited. I had a Rogue Imperial Porter. Didnít eat.
