I really wanted to like this place, but ridiculously slow service is the NICEST thing I have to say about it. The service was extremely slow the whole evening, but most notably the manager was terribly rude, and the food was unremarkable. My daughter ordered...More

Our food was just average.... the fish tacos only had one taco and fell apart in my hands but were tasty. my wife's chowder was good and her caesar salad was good. the beer was good.... Vicious brew. Service was good.

Casual atmosphere, outdoor seating available, craft brewery on site. Wide variety of organic craft beers and ales on tap. Order a sampler of 4 to see what you like best, then get the 16 oz pint or 22 oz imperial pint (if you're not driving)....More

Came for the beer and had on of the best ciders I've tried anywhere. Of course they have good beer and food too.

This Brew Pub is a popular restaurant to enjoy a beer and great menu items. I recently order Fish & Chips and now realize why it is a favorite of patrons. The fish was cooked perfectly and the hand cut fries are my favorite.

We love Fish Tale and their remodel made it so much better. There is much more room and you can bring your children to the one side if you really wanted to. The food is always great and the beer for sure.

I love Fishtails, every time I go there I meet someone new and interesting! It's a place where meet and greet was invented. If you don't want to talk don't go to Fishtails. If like me you like to go out alone, have a drink,...More

We were there on a Friday and it was packed. There were a number of us and staff was able to find us a larger table. We were still quite crowded. Most people come here for the beer which I understand is quite good. The...More

And while the Pub's 24 taps of beer and cider can present guests with a daunting selection, our knowledgeable staff will be there to help find the one that's right for you.
