Have made one visit here so far...The beers on on tap were all good, (had the Mud Shark Porter,Organic ale, and the Hefe).
Food was great, would have tried more items if my appetite would have allowed. Interesting interior, open and roomy.Came in on a Sunday around mid afternoon so not very crowded.
Service was slow, and the wait staff was aloof, don't know if it was my military style haircut or not.(maybe).
Definitly the yuppie and old 60's hangout, for the area, but that seems to be the standard in Oly. Will go back again as long as the beer is good and food is hot.

4/19/12 - Visited the Fish Tale Brew Pub while on vacation after a long day on Hurricane Ridge.
It was a busy Thursday night and we seated ourselves next to some dude heavily engaged in his electronice device, after asking him if the seats we wanted were occupied and seeing his reaction on his face, we decided to sit elsewhere. The group of people we chose to sat next to wound up being rude and self-involved to the point where we wondered if we had stumbled into some dimension where the ego is all that exists. Luckily the patrons were the worst part of this visit.
Our patient waitress talked to us about some of her favorite brews so we decided to try Soundkeeper Organic Pale Ale. I had tried an organic beer from Deschutes the day before and was pleasantly surprised by the presence of flavor and lack of gimmick so once again I was happy with my choice to go with organic beer on recommendations. I liked it so much I went with their organic IPA to join my Wild Salmon & Chips which was tasty and fresh. Since I had to drive back to Seattle after dinner I convinced my wife to order the Hodgson's DIPA to go with her Fishbowl Salad with smoked salmon and she quite enjoyed the unusual pairing. Fair prices, quality service, above-average pub fair and diverse beers will keep me coming back here next time I am in town.
