The place still looks brand-new after a few years. Huge sprawling dining/drinking rooms. Some say Hale’s is a genuine artisanal craft brewer; others see it as just a stalwart micro with its share of the market. Either opinion can have a nice meal here. Efficient (if occasionally utilitarian) service, good choices up and down the menu, comfortable couches and tables/chairs. They’ve thought of everything; the kitchen borders on emerging from the pub grub ranks into serious consideration as a restaurant. You can take buddies or families here. Probably nothing special as a place to impress a first date.
Nice modern looking building, lots of good seating. Basically it’s a good restaurant with a bar and a brewery. Very clean and modern but not much personality. The waitstaff I’m sure rotates as often as the beers. The waitress I had was nice and friendly. They had lots of beers on tap, most of which weren’t their usual mass distributed stuff thank god. Food was extra tasty. I would go here again and recommend it to anyone in the area. If you come here though, you must go to Maritime as well.
Another must visit brewpub when in Seattle. We went on Sunday morning after visiting Mars Hill (www.marshillchurch.org) because it was right down the street from there. The service was good and food pretty tasty. They had all their normal beers on tap and a not too often seen one - their dry hopped 2IPA. This too is in a cool industrial location and the guts of the brewery are in plain view for all to see. They have a separate bar as well as a restaurant. Enojoyable!
Service is hit or miss; love the shows at the Palladium. Food is delicious; solid beer, seasonal brews are the best.

Pretty neat place. Large glass walls allow you to watch the beer being brewed while you relax and enjoy your pint. They offer a large variety of beers from which to choose, in pints, schooners or even a sampler platter. There have at least two beers on nitro tap. The place is clean and relatively quiet with large windows that let in lots of light. The booths are large and comfortable, so it’s a great place for a good conversation. The service is always quick and excellent. The menu is about average for a brew pub--been here many times and although the food is pretty good, I haven’t eaten anything outstanding. Prices are about average for a brewpub in this area.
Very cool place here. I’ve been in a couple times and have enjoyed it each time. Right in the middle of a location spoiled with places to grab a good beer, this place fits right in. The entry way is a very nice loft like scenic view of their brewing facility. They feature a section for families, and a pub section. No dogs here unfortunately, though I understand. I love the food menu. It seems like a lot of the beer places these days have a food menu full of items that are either too hard to pronounce, or look way to fancy for someone like me. Hale’s has burgers, sandwiches, wings, nachos, and great beer. My kind of place for sure. They offer a wide selection of their beers, some on nitro as well, and a guest tap. Good guest tap too. When we were there it was decently busy for a weeknight near closing time, however they were all over it with good service. A big group of about 10 came in literally 10 minutes before closing time, and they kept their doors open for them and provided a full service. Not going to lie, I am impressed with this place. Good beer, good service, good selection, good price. What more can you ask for. I’ll be back.
Upon entering I am right in front of a full scale, functioning brewing system. To the left through some glass doors is where the actual pub is. Atmosphere in here is basic brewpub ambiance. The beer lineup is solid, not knock-my-sock-offs, but decent.
Quality brewpub with lots of the brewing equipment on display inside a really nice space off Leary. The beers are an interesting mix of European styles and some hoppy IPAs. The menu is also pretty solid for pub grub.
