I've been here a few times when in town on business.
This location has a modern loft style atmosphere, with enough dark wood and dim lighting to seem more warm then cavernous, which it is. Huge and inviting chocolate brown leather booths, stainless steel bar, and some interesting artwork, 1/2 of which has the look of graffiti artist gone legit, which I really dig.
The quality of Elysian beer is great, quintessential Seattle microbrew. You really can't go wrong. And if your just not in the mood for one of the 10+ styles of their own, try one of the well chosen guest taps, which are mainly imports and macros.
Staff is helpful, friendly, attentive, and generally good looking. Note that whenever I'm here, it's on the slower side. I'm sure it's a whole new ballgame when the stadiums are kicking.
The menu is a bit more upscale then average pub fare. I like the kobe beef burger, with their tasty Heinze 57 style house sauce for only $11, which is one of the lower priced entrées, all of which sound very appealing and upscale. The burger though is a real winner, with rogue blue cheese another 50 cents! Definitely on par with rogue's version, and while it comes with applewood smoked bacon, is another 4 or 5 bucks. I remember having some sort of chicken dinner the first time I was here, and while it was fine, was nothing special.
Beer I think is about average, I'm normally there around happy hour, and never seem to drink my way into too large of a bill! Their main location is definitely a younger more laid back atmosphere, but this one has it's charm and plenty of good food and drink.

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).

Crazy place on game days as one might imagine but is a great spot to eat and drink in the Downtown Seattle area. They keep the standards you see on tap in the area as well as specialties you can find only here. Beer list is 5 pages long so take your time and try some of the more unique listings. They have a full bar too but who needs booze when there is beer? Food is good but a little pricey. Go early if you go on the weekends or like I said earlier on Sounders or Seahawks games. Enjoy the mayhem and fun.

Stopped in here when I was in Seattle for a conference. Neat ambiance, HUGE place, and a great selection of Elysian brews. Got a bunch of brews, 4 or 5, on cask and on tap. There was a nice variety from stouts to IPAs and other things. Food was solid enough and prices--while not cheap--weren’t completely outrageous. Decent service. Recommended, especially for game time.
