First off, the place is pretty huge. Lots of seats lots of tables. Does the Americanized Brit-pub thing pretty well. The look is right but it seems a little to clean and sanitized. Funny, it's right down the street from where my grandparents lived in their retirement and my recollections of it from when I would visit in my early 20's are far different from how it looks today. Anyway, it's right near Key Arena and the Seattle Center/Opera House so it's a good place to pop into pre or post event in the area.
Some British beers on tap and a bunch of local brews. Occasionally a surprise but most of the local must-have breweries are represented. They did do a nice job during the holidays of getting a good portion of their taps over to local Christmas beers.
Food is a mix between Brit Pub Grub and American Barfood. The usual Burgers, B-wings and Jalepeno poppers. Everything is pretty good-sized portions for normal prices.
The crowd is all over the place. You get sonics fans one night and black tied Opera goers the next. But it's the kind of place where you feel comfortable in a suit or jeans, whatever.

Decent place. The atmosphere was ok ... nothing eye catching or exciting. Certainly not anything that would get in the way of knocking down a few beers. A friend that accompanied me was hoping to drink a good stout, but I warned him that he'd likely find only Guinness. He was sad to see that I was right. That isn't to say that there were no good beers to drink, as out of the 16 or more taps there were quite a few worthy beers. Wildcat IPA, Bridgeport IPA, Deschutes Porter, Wreck the Halls ... what to choose? Anyway, I was quite pleased at the Northwest selection. Our food was brought quickly, but rightly so as the place wasn't overly packed. The food was decent in my mind, though my friend seemed to love his. Service was forgetable, and at one point our waitress apologized for "being a bad waitress" (in other words, ignoring us). Food and beer prices weren't exceedingly high, but I didn't get excited about a bargain either. All in all, an ok place, but not the best Seattle has to offer.
