This is one friendly place where the owner and his staff really care about making you feel at home. The place is cosy and bright with a live band Wed and Sat. The night I was there a great bluegrass band played. The beers are almost all good with many styles available. Ask for a taster set to see what strikes your fancy. The food is tasty with quality ingredients used and a brick oven of the pizza. Service was fast and very friendly with lots of interaction with the bartender. I think that this one of the best brewpubs in the Puget Sound.

Great place considering it is in a small town. Lots of friendly regulars. Really good Beer. Service is OK depending on who the bartender is. A bit pricey for a brewpub but its one of the only nice places in the town. Overall, great place and I will be back!

Great place to go on a date in downtown. Right off the main street too. I had the Anacortes porter when I was there and it was really good. The food and service was on point and didn't take long at all. I was even able to sit outside on the patio and they had someone playing music out there to really set the tone. Highly recommend taking the lady here and it's not too expensive either.

My wife and I stopped in at the Anacortes brewery during the arts festival this past weekend. The place was full, as it was a nice hot sunny day and the festival was packed with people.

The restaurant has a good, homey atmosphere and is hung with brewery and fish-related artwork and memorabilia. They had upwards of a dozen of their brews on tap, including one beer on a cask engine (which I unfortunately did not get to try). The beer I did have, however, was quite good, and I look forward to returning there to try their other selections.

Service was a bit slow, but as I noted it was extremely busy in there. They might have done well to schedule more staff during the festival, however.

The food was quite good indeed. I had the fish & chips and my wife had the fried oysters, all of which was good. I would definitely recommend this place, and I plan on returning the next time I am in Anacortes.

stopped in after lunch (adrift - about a block away, recommended). located on the main drag of "historic downtown anacortes".

anacortes is about 75 minutes north of seattle and is a really lovely town surrounded by mountains, the sound and the san juan islands. the sun was shining bright and it was truly a beautiful setting on a fall day.

the pub is a bit sterile in atmosphere, but it was mid-day on a Saturday. we nestled up at the bar for a few pints and caught a little football as there were a couple of basic tv's in the bar.

bartender was solid and offered up samples of a handful of styles - you could tell they get a lot of non-regulars as he had a previously rehearsed routine in order to help the customer. i settled on the cask IPA with simcoe - the best of the bunch i sampled.

awesome town, kind of a dull pub, but quality beer

I stopped here on my Northwestern odyssey only after deciding that my return east could wait a day. I was happy I did, as it was a Friday night with a live band and it had a good local vibe to the place. I was extremely impressed with their Belgian beers, amoungst the favorites of my trip while the other beers were also very solid, if not also exceptional. I did not have a chance to try the food, but it probably would not have been fair to evaluate after trying two whole samplers. I really liked this place and if I am ever in the area again, a stop here for me is definitely a must.

I've visited the Rockfish many times in the past but finally had a good experience worth writing about. In the past, I've had problems with surly bartenders not wanting to fill growlers and servers who were less then pleasant. The food has always been quite well done, great pub fare with a bit of a gourmet touch occasionally. The beer ranged from mediocre to good and there was not usually much of a selection, particularly to fill a growler. This has changed. Before they would only fill growlers with the red, amber and one other selection. Now they have six or seven and some additional selections on tap with experimental beers. Certainly a great place to go, especially to sit outside in the beer garden and enjoy a nice day in Anacortes.
