Heavenly and frothsome! – Beer was beyond excellent and we New Yorkers were bowled over!
Thanks to a timely tip by a local pharmacist at Walgreens we got the best treat Seattle could offer.
Beer at Hale's ale after a hot day's walk for a tourist is like a sweet dose of frothy heaven!!!
Brews good, service could be better – I like going here for the brews, the food is definately better than most pub fare (I like the mac & cheese), but the service isn't great-I walked in with a friend when there were few patrons, we sat down at a booth right in front of the bar, and waited 10 minutes before going up to the bar and asking if the tables where still open. I would go more often if it was better.
Great place for a Family--or not!! – I have gone to Hale's many times and I will continue to go there until they fail to impress me, which is unlikely. The food is phenomenal, at least all that I have had, which is most of the menu. The family section is definitely not just for people over 21 who are just looking for a drink, and is frequented by families with kids under 10, but there is a completely different section for only 21 and over, and still has the same great service and food, but plus the bar. Unless you are just going for an appetizer, it is very unlikely that Hale's food will leave you hungry, yet most likely wanting more.
Though sometimes the service could be a little faster, the servers are always very nice, and I love stopping in for a guarenteed delicious meal!
The best quality fish and chips ever!!!!! – I stopped ordering fish and chips because I got tired of the heavy batter, too much oil, and poor quality fish....but Hale's Ales Pub delivers the best fish and chips ever. They also have wild salmon on the menu at a very reasonable price. Please do not pay any attention to some bad reviews. It is such a fun atomosphere with great service. I look forward to going back again and again
Don't bother.... – We made a reservation for 13 people after my son's graduation, for someplace that we thought would be good yet casual. We had read the "Entrees and Sandwiches" menu on line, which turned out to be only available at dinner. Service was the worst I've ever had, with no silverware or napkins on the table until we asked for them -- after our food arrived. My husband's salad came out of the kitchen wrong, and finally after 15 minutes of waiting for a replacement, I went and complained to the manager. He got it 7 minutes after that, as all of the rest of us were done eating. The manager ended up giving us $20 in gift certs (the bill was over $200) but those will go unused as none of us desired a second trip back. As I said, don't bother!
Clears turned away! – They won't even let you in if you have on bike or soccer cleats because they value their hardwood floors more than your business!
terrible management, lousy customer service – We hosted a private party at Hale's and it was a nightmare arranging it. They gave us the wrong menu the first time, changed who we had to work with mid-stream, gave us incorrect quotes, had inflexible policies, then the night of the event had the nerve to tell us and our guests who arrived there before us that we had never confirmed the event. I had to pull up my email to prove to them that I had confirmed it, so they reluctantly accommodated us. You should take your business to a place that treats you better than a pest
A Great Brewpub In Seattle – I ate lunch here after a trip to the zoo with my wife and parents simply to try Hale's Ales Cream Ale. I was not disappointed by the beer but I wasn't blown away by my pizza, either. However, everyone else enjoyed their lunches. My unexciting pizza aside, I will defintely go back to Hale's Ales for the great service we received and to sample more of their beers. Bottoms up!
yellow salad – For a lunchtime salad for $12.95 I was expecting something really great, but was very dissappointed with the Jeerk Ceasar Salad. Ceasar salads were once green and full of nutrients and fiber. Nowadays, the restaurants are serving yellow and white romaine lettuce with about as much nutrition and fiber as head lettuce, that is, almost none. To boot, it was over loaded with thick creamy dressing, and boring white bread croutons. I guess the slab of grilled chicken on top was supposed to justify the price, but all in all it was a boring salad and left me feeling like I was eating junk food. To be fair, my husband's mushroom burger was tasty and it was nice that he had the healthier choice of cole slaw rather than fries on the side. But please please, bring back GREEN romaine lettuce.
Great visit – I had a wonderful experience the other night at Hale's. I had friends visiting from out of town and wanted to show them a "northwest" kind of place. the food here was good, a different kind of "pub" fare. No greasy fries...just good homecooked food. our server was very knowledgable about the beers and suggested we try a sampler of 5 beers. It was great...I had their summer beer which was delicious. There was a little for everyone. My husband had the USA Pizza and it was great. I had the meatloaf and was surprised by how tender it was. our friends shared a couple appetizers and none of us left hungry. It was a great way to show our friends a Seattle good time
