Overall, I liked this place. Even the aloof waitress, probably taking long breaks turn edit her tome of the modern decline of something....was randomly informative, and present. Hey, it's Seattle. The Perseus Porter stood out for me. Quite nice. A good mouth feel, not to heavy, not too light, almost just right. Not going for a session here though, just one or two. My wife and I had a burger-good, along with some fries- decent, but honestly nothing jumped out as memorable about our selections. Next time, maybe I'll ask for a recommendation to give them a fair shake. When I come back to Seattle, I'll definitely give Elysian another shot.

The place was packed for the first Mariners game of the season, but there was a good feel in the place and it's a very large with a number of seating areas and places to stand, so it wasn't uncomfortable. My wife and I found a table in the back room where you were allowed to have drinks without eating. They don't do samplers on game nights, unfortunately. The beers were good and overall we enjoyed ourselves. However, they were out of many beers that were listed as being available, were not available and so I could not get a couple of the beers that I would have really wanted to try. Other than that, worth the stop if you're in the area.

I went to Elysian Fields again the other day to see what interesting beers they have available and to relax after work. It was my first trip to the location not either immediately before or after a sporting event; as this place is just a few hundred feet from Seahawks Stadium, you can imagine how busy it gets on those days.

Overall the location is pretty sizeable, with a big oval central bar that has copious seating. There were around 20 taps, including both Elysian staples as well as rotating and seasonal beers; I really appreciate the variety. Service was a bit slow, considering the relatively low volume of people in the place, but the staff were friendly and helpful -- and I wasn't in any hurry.

This place is definitely worth a stop. They make some interesting beers at Elysian, and this location seems to have their biggest selection.

Right next to CenturyLink and Safeco Fields. Good food and beer. Modern compared to the Capitol Hill location.

Went for dinner last Saturday and lunch last Sunday before the White Sox games.

Vastly preferable to Pyramid (which is closer to the ballpark). Bigger selection of better beers at comparable prices. Smaller selection of better food at comparable prices.

Prices are reasonable (for close-to-stadium joints). Beer is good-to-great. Food is good. Service is pretty good. Location is a walk from the ballpark (practically in the football stadium parking lot, though).
