“Best beer selection downtown”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

Have been coming to Olympia for business for a few years and kept looking for a decent local place with a good selection of beers. This fit the bill with a friendly staff and patrons to boot. Not an upscale place by any means, but if you're looking for a tavern with good beer, a few tvs, and pool tables, this is the place.

“Don't judge this place by the exterior”
Reviewed 7 February 2013

If you want craft beers and a good selection this is obviously the place in Olympia. While at another place I asked where to find a good sour ale in OIympia and was steered to the Eastside Tavern. They had a good Petrus Brown on tap that was just what I wanted. They carry probably 30+ different beers it looked like on tap and some others. It was a place with a mixture of people on ipads, laptops, having beers, just a regular dive bar but with a great selection. Bartender knew his beers and was friendly and fast. It's a good place and reasonably priced.

“beer buddies”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

Excellent beer, lots of variety and quality hard to find elsewhere. Several of the bartenders are really nice and good about recommending/discussing beer with the clientele but there are a couple that are dismissive and rude. There are many regulars and the place has a "Cheers" feeling to it.
