    great food and good beer what else could you want

  • 2 NoraBell // Aug 19, 2009 at 8:38 pm

    They have plenty of meatless items on the menu and the beer is always cold and yummy. The little bar section is comfortable and you can't ask for better service.
    And newspaper clippings in the restroom stalls? How great is that?

  • 3 bobinballard // Sep 4, 2009 at 11:49 pm

    Been there twice had very decent food for the money there. You must remember that first and foremost its a brewery, not a gourmet restaurant, you are only paying $12-$14 an entrée.

  • 4 amusedpen // Oct 23, 2009 at 9:26 pm

    Use to be better, or maybe with all the great food in Seattle, we've become jaded.

    On our last visit, we stopped by around 9 PM. The menu said they served until 10 PM. The server brought us menus, then when we tried to order, she said the kitchen was closed – huh? So why did you bring us menus?

    We pointed out that it said they served until 10, she had a consult with the kitchen, and then said okay. Whatever we ordered wasn't available, and what we did order appeared to have been thrown together with little enthusiasm.

    We'll probably try again one day, but the competition for the food dollar these days is frantic, and you can't really afford to tick off customers.

    My husband and I will be moving across the state in a few months– and one of the things I'll miss most (besides Ballard Market) is Hale's. I felt the need to write a review to combat all of the salt lovers that are posting. As far as pub food goes, Hale's has a tasty, consistent menu. The rock fish and chips are awesome (granted, some days are a bit better than others) with panko breading instead of beer batter, the club sandwich is great, and the happy hour burger deal is fantastic. If you're not a fan a salads swimming in dressing, the pub salad is an excellent side. Also, the meatloaf is a standout — on par with the Tin Hat.

    Summary: Good pub food with good beer. Salt shakers are on the table.

  • 6 Josh Young // Mar 14, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    3 strikes and you’re out. Attended Hale’s “brunch” after the St. Paddy’s Dash this morning. Ordered Biscuits & Gravy.
    Biscuits = dry
    Gravy = bland
    Sausage = rubbery
    Potatoes = burnt
    Waitress = Careless

    3 visits to Hale’s Ales has led to 3 disappointments. I will not go back.

    Their beer is not good either.

  • 7 Bryan // Jun 22, 2010 at 3:47 pm

    Great beer, great place to sit back with a group of friends and relax, good enough food to make the beer that much more tasty.

    Nothing here to complain about for me. I love having this place in the neighborhood.

  • 8 Murray // May 3, 2011 at 4:38 am

    Fantastic beer. Food’s good too especially burgers. Service is always good and we’ve been there dozens of times. Just wondering how godawful Barking Dog ended up with same overall rating as Hales – that’s crazy especially when you read all the deservedly bad reviews!

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  • 41 zakup paneli // Nov 3, 2014 at 12:39 pm

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  • 42 okna // Nov 3, 2014 at 2:00 pm

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

However, because of what precisely I have experienced, I only wish when the commentary pile on that folks stay on point and in no way embark on a tirade associated with the news of the day. Still, thank you for this fantastic piece and though I do not go along with it in totality, I respect your point of view.
