My wife and I hunkered down at the bar a sunny Sunday early afternoon. The bartender was very friendly and helpful. The beer selection was very good and included some hard to find ones. We didn't order food, but it seemed like your standard bar type food.

Good place here, definitely worth checking out whenever near the area.

This is where I bring my dates when I want to impress them. Fantastic selection of beers, wide range of prices. The food I is ooo-lah-lah delicious. I ordered a sausage dish that arrived plated to look like male genitalia. That was a challenge for me, for obvious reasons. I ate it anyway because after all, this is Capitol Hill in Seattle! It was delicious. The food makes this a worthy destination spot for any foodies in your midst. The beer list is like a snobby wine list without the insufferable snobs. I used to be a wine snob, but beer is much better. The atmosphere is really nifty once you get over the idea of it having once been a funeral home. The pizza oven did not used to be a crematorium. I asked. Really, this is where you should bring your dates. They will be impressed, and you will get to enjoy good food and beer. Even if your date sucks, you will still have a great and memorable evening.

Came here instead of going to Stumbling Monk, which I'm glad I did. Awesome tap selection, including Logsdon's Farmhouse Ales and Firestone and bottles from Lost Abbey. Great pulled pork sandwich to go with it all. Bartender made great recommendations all night. Great place in Capitol Hill.

Reviewed during the start of happy hour - not too crowded on a Tuesday.

Atmosphere: After talking with the waiter, I learned this place was a former funeral parlor, and the main joint was originally the chapel where services would be held. Neat place - very high ceiling, big ceiling lights, huge bar, plenty of tables and a eclectic feel to the place. Great music as well. Well....I thought it was good. They played Simple Man by Skynryd which usually gets many points for me when I rate atmosphere.

Quality: All great craft beers and a handful of Belgian imports as well. All Pacific NW beers and Northern California on tap or in bottles.

Service: Great waiter - very attentive, quick service, and very friendly.

Selection: 30 beers on tap and about 30-40 beers in bottle form.

Food: Looked like pretty simple but well done fare - I had of all things the Pretzel with spicy mustard. While that mustard was infernally hot, it was full of flavor and the pretzel was perfectly done - not reheated. They took the time to make this from scratch. If this was what a pretzel was like, I suspect the rest of the menu would be quite good.

Value: Very good prices. $5 for a 160z beer, and $4 at happy hour.

I will definitely visit this place again.
