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.

A casual local bar with a small dining section and a comfortable lounge. Bright and airy. Lots of beers on tap, non particularly great. Tasters available and well priced. We didnít eat but it looked OK. Not a bad stop and a convenient location if you are going between Seattle and Portland.

Old school brewpub with a decent selection of house beers on tap. The regulars are very bland, but the seasonals are decently made. Service is friendly, though not overly knowledgeable about the beer. Very reasonable prices. Worth a stop if in the area, but not a must stop by any means. Better go to Three Magnets a block away if you have to choose.

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 werenít. And more werenít 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 four beers. They have their own stuff plus guest taps. The menís 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.
