This pub is what all small town breweries should be like. Itís housed in an amazing old city building, has very high ceiling, large circular bar tables, and the bar itself is a work of art: very colorful and well crafted. The servers were awesome to talk to, they knew their beer and had some good opinions, and can spot a beer drinker fairly well. I scribbled some RateBeer graffiti on the bathroom chalkboard.

Typical warm, woody NW brewpub. On the waterfront in a historic building. The brewery is quite small, but the place was packed when I was there. Live music and an energetic crowd. The beer is pretty good, the service was fine enough given the busyness. Iíll try to get back on a quieter day, though.

Great place to knock back some pints. Live music (bluegrass) played loud enough to know its there but not so loud that you canít hear. Friendly staff and locals, high ceilings, and a great bar. All cocktails are made with fresh-squeezed citrus which almost looked good enough to put my beer down. Eclectic decor and some decent food make this an awesome place to grab a pint (or two, or eight). Entertaining to watch the female owner totally take the piss out of a drunk who thought he could talk smack to her.

Had a nice lunch here with my wife and child. We came in after a nice drive up the hood canal. The service was awesome we loved the atmosphere. Just a simple pub with great art and a fun feel. The huge bar area with the bar was just what one would look for in an old bar. They have pool tables upstairs and with the no smoking so you can pay with out issues. Lots of beer on tap over 10 of their own taps. The food was awesome and they serve lots of it. This was a fun place I will come back for the Strange brew festival next winter. Will check this place out in the summer I bet it is rocking then. The beers did have a flavor that was a tad too hoppy but that goes to show you what they do in the Pac NW.

Great beers, spotty service, occasionally obnoxious crowd. Been here a few times, though, and only saw the obnoxious crowd once. Beautiful setting--picturesque shoreline location, historic old brick building surrounded by many other fine historic brick or stone buildings. The food is great: mussels and clams, burgers, fries, lots of elegant pub grub. Live music, funky decor, decades-old bar and barback. And as a little recent-past bonus, this is where the fight scene between Gere and the locals was filmed in Officer and a Gentleman. Combined with the very good to great beers, itís a must-stop.

Food was fantastic, beer pretty good with seven of theirs on draft. Service was OK and they had run out of things but it was 7PM on a Monday night.

Spacious, red-walled bar area with actual wooden bar tables (a rarity), weathered brick dining area, little nooks with chintzy couches and comfy upholstered chairs. Lava lamp collection. Alternative music was college station-ish, but better. Eclectic, arty, fun, and architecturally cool. Thereís more I didnít see; billiards upstairs? Quirky local art is tasteful and kept to a minimum. I include in that category the gent sipping PBR from the can. Despite being only a quarter full, the spirited clientele (20- to 50-somethings) kept up a pleasant din. There were several that I would swear were homeless, but turned out to be ungroomed slobs with cellphones and goodwill wardrobes. Service and food were good. Very good beers.

Food was very good, beer was good. Service could have been better, bit slow and were out of greens for salad, and crab.
