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 foir 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.

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!

This place is great. Some people seem to dislike this place for certain reasons, and I fully understand all of those reasons, but I havenít lived here (Washington) that long. With that being said, I found this place to be quite enjoyable at 3:30 in the afternoon. There was hardly anyone there, so that helped with service. Generally, I find that sitting at the bar mitigates the chances of getting shitty service. The bartendress was a nice lady, and knew enough about the beer, but I wasnít concerned with striking up a conversation about beer; the awesome, but crazy, local took care of that. Ambiance is a laid-back-Olympia-I-donít-give-a-shit type of vibe. I wish they had some Leviathan brews on tap -- oh well. Beer selection was what I expected -- that is, Fish Tale and Leavenworth. I didnít have the food, but it looked great. I really enjoyed this place. $24 for a 22 oz. of ten-squared and four pints.

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.
