I’ve been to the Fishbowl a dozen times in four years. I like the interior, but there are some places I never sit because they don’t really fit the pub and are out of the way. Service is variable, but overall pretty good. I dislike the attitude however: bartenders don’t want to talk beer, or talk to anyone other than each other or a few chosen regulars. Selection is also good, as long as you want a Leavenworth or Fish Tale beer - there is only one or two guest handles at a time. They have 3-4 handles of cider and a non-alcoholic Ginger Brew. I’ve never had a bad meal there and usually really like the food. A bit pricy for Olympia, but a good value compared to other brewpubs in the Seattle-Tacoma area. They sell and fill growlers and seem to do a brisk business doing so. I try to support local brewpubs and craft brewing every place I live and travel to, but The Fishbowl doesn’t make it easy.

First, the place is now called "Fish Tale Brewpub (Olympia)." Came in with my wife on Sunday morning. Decent food, good prices, okay beer/cider. Laidback. Okay service.

This was my first experience with a hipster brewpub. The service was OK; a little slow and slightly off-putting, but OK. There was a great selection of beers, but the quality of them was not all that great - a few were fine, but a lot weren’t. And more weren’t than were. Food was decent, though we only had an appetizer.

We actually stopped here for breakfast since they open at 9 am. Of course, we also had a sampler of foir beers. They have their own stuff plus guest taps. The men’s room is worth a look too.

A very nice corner pub in the middle of the street. A decent selection of beer was available and the food was pretty good. The prices also were very good. The service on both visits was very good with our waiter sporting a Philadelphia Flyers tattoo which matched my sons hat. Locals told me it was the best place in town.

2010-06. Visited for an early lunch one Tuesday last June, we sat by the door and ate a tasty pulled pork sandwich and seafood stew. Full of concrete floors and wooden tables and chairs, this strange multi-level ceiling has interesting artifacts on display. Two 4-beer samplers found us trying four Fish Tales and four Leavenworths, all quite interesting but nothing stood out. Service was fine if a little on the slow side. This was en route for us and I enjoyed the break, but am not in a rush to return for the beer -- the pulled pork, more so.

I enjoyed this place. It was a pretty low-key bar on a friday night, comfortable seating outside. Beers were solid and service was good. Good curry veggie burger here.

Stopped here on a Sunday and had a couple of their good beers including a fresh hop cask ale. Had great conversations with several of the folks there. The staff was nice and attentive. Excellent stop if your in/traveling around Olympia, worth the stop!
