Looking for a great bar to check out in the Olympia area? One that caters to sports fan, the dive bar crowd, and college students alike? Look no further than the Office Bar and Grill in Tumwater, Washington. Located across the street from South Puget Sound Community College, The Office is a hidden gem of a bar in an otherwise overpopulated town.
Olympia has more bars than Seattle has coffee shops. So what makes The Office Bar and Grill so special? They do not have a happy hour, but they offer daily food and drink specials. Stop in on Monday for a $5 burger. The bar is always crowded on Taco Tuesday, when soft and hard tacos are only .99 cents. On Wednesday they offer a burger dip you can't find on their regular menu. Thursday has beer battered fish and chips for only $6. Friday is all about beer. Starting at 4 PM, pints of Oly are $2 and pitchers are only $5. On Saturday you can get a bacon wrapped steak served with fries and a salad for $9, and on Sunday they offer all-you-can-eat spaghetti for only $3.99. The best part? Their food is actually good. Try their pulled pork sandwich. You won't regret it.
Now let's talk about the staff. The women working at The Office Bar and Grill are attentive, personable, and welcoming. They move seamlessly through the crowd, moving from table to table, at ease with every crowd. They recognize regulars and welcome each new face with a friendly greeting. That's the other great thing about the Office, it attracts a wide range of customers. Step inside and you'll find yourself surrounded by college students, biker gangs, elderly couples and professors from the college across the street.
If you are still not convinced this bar deserves a five star rating, stop by and pay them a visit.
