My inlaws and I went here while we were on vacation in Seattle.
You enter from the street and walk down a long flight of stairs. The area is a vast dimly-lit bar with booths surrounding the outer edges. Lots of big screen TVs showing sports. The bar is very long and there were tons of tap - something like 80 different beers on tap. Unfortunately nothing really exceptional but I say that from a beernerds perspective. There were lots of good choices but I would say the most impressive selection was Old Rasputin.
We sat at a booth and I asked about the NW sampler. The guy told me: "a blonde, a red, an IPA, and a dark beer." So not much info there. I would have at least expected him to know the brewery that each one came from. The nice thing was that they were all from smaller, lesser-known breweries that I had not seen or heard of before so I was happy with that.
The meal was very good and reasonably priced - fish and chips - some of the best I've had in a while. In fact, everyone seemed happy with their meal and it was all reasonably priced.
Overall not bad but probably not a real destination. A good place for a beer lover who doesn't mind having some good (not extraodinary) beers.

My second son and i visited after a 13 hour drive from the SF Bay Area. We were in Seattle for the weekend to check out Seattle University (which he decided to enter this fall).
Atmosphere: We both liked walking in and having to go down to get the bar/restaurant. Definitely gave a different vibe. Decent crowd with a mix of ages.
Quality: My mouth was watering with the number of different styles. I DFH Aprihop and North Coast Brother Theolonius. Both were tasty and fresh.
Service: The waiter was nice, but a little too indifferent.
Selection: 160 taps. Please.
Food: We really enjoyed our food. Chicken pasta and fancy cheese sandwhich for my son.
Value: Not really sure. Probably a bit pricey, but it's downtown Seattle.

A bit classy. It is downstairs in a basement, there is a large bar and quite a few tables.
The service was good. The place didn't seem too busy, and I was well attended. I didn't ask many questions on the beer, but the waiter was able to give a recommendation when asked.
Obviously the draft list is solid, a wide range of beers and all kinds of styles. Local and import.
The food was really good, and the value was so so for a place like this.
Overall I would visit again. Worth a trip if you are downtown.

A-It is a big space, but it is downstairs, no natural light, cavish. Sports on TVs, downtown professionals, slow in afternoon, busy at night, 9 ft pool tables
Q-food is okay, beer has never been an issue (160 taps), but it has made me wonder when I don't enjoy something new- is it because it is sitting or do I just not like the beer?
S-Staff is usually knowledgeable, usually attentive, but sometimes a little understaffed, beers on menu are often out
S- Who couldn't get selection right w/160 taps?! But they do better than average, almost all craft beers. Ruination on permanently when they don't run out, Russian River, Avery, Bear Repub, HUB, you get the picture.
V-prices vary, pints$6-7, tulips the same, food can get pricey, but happy hour has some good value like sushi rolls, wings

160 taps, it's a lot. That said a lot are fairly easy to find anywhere so there are only a handful to write home about, the first two iasked for were sold out but still on the menu, a bit disappointing but what can you do. They had damnation on the menu so that's always good.
Atmosphere is decent, baseball games on TV, decent music at a decent level, the bar is huge and its quite busy but no wait on a weekday evening. The bar seemed a bit under staffed so super wasn't super fast but the girl seemed pretty up to speed with what was on tap.
