One of my favorite brew pubs. The atmosphere and decor (lots of exceptionally crafted steel) was a real pleasure to study while enjoying one of their fine brews. I had a "Kilt Lifter" and what a brew. I bought a t-shirt and beer glass.

The only thing that torqued me off is they wouldn't allow my 7 year old daughter in there. Not even to sit on the couch. So, my Wife couldn't enjoy a beer, she had to take daughter and go elsewhere while I sat there feeling guilty trying to enjoy a wonderful beer. Shame on them!

Really cool place where I enjoyed a sampler with my wife. We also had a couple of appetizers. They have a very large selection of beers (their own root beers) and you were very satisfied with both the food and the beer. The decor was very good and the place was overall a good vibe place. I will say that the lighting at the tables was extremely bright. I felt like a surgeon in the operating room. Other than that, awesome place and absolutely worth a stop when in Seattle.

Good beer and good food. Has separate, spacious bar seating (self-serve), as well as general seating. Whenever I go somewhere for a growler fill, somebody (often an attractive lady) "ooh"s and "Aaahh"s at my Pike Brewery euro-style growler, which they sell here for a decent price. They have beer history and memorabilia plastered all over the walls, and I always find myself reading newspaper clippings on the wall whenever I come here. It is loud and busy, but I kind of like that. They are pretty vegetarian friendly.

Conveniently located within Pike's Market in Downtown, Seattle. Pike's has been brewing for a good long while in Seattle. The vibe is kind of chill, considering its tourist local and the place has lots of vintage decor. The quality of the beer is solid, though the service could be better along with the selection. Solid if you need a quick drink!

This was a nice little tour and tasting. The food's not bad and the service was pretty good when I was there. It was sure fun to try some offerings I can't find on the shelves!

Great place to visit whether you live or are visiting Seattle. Located in historic Pike Place Market, this brewery has a huge selection of beers and good food as well. There is also a small, but very cool beer museum. This is a must visit for fans of craft beer

Pretty touristy but I'm a tourist. Very loud and busy, lots of families with children. That said, not a relaxing place but the food and beer was great. Definitely go if you're in the area.

The first brewery of many on my trip to the Northwest and not a bad way to start out. After walking the Seattle downtown 1st street area and passing through the Pike Place fish market we needed some grub and a few beers to regain some energy - Pike Place would fill that need.

The vibe wasn't my thing but in the heavy foot traffic area probably went over well with the general pop. Tons of retro beer paraphernalia lined the walls to the point where it became distracting. It reminded me of a TGIFridays for beer - super busy.

Beer quality was great - I had a straight forward saison that blew me away and a pale ale that was decent (very classically hopped with big malt character) but fell short of my expectations. The lady had an IPA and a Porter both were nice from the few sips I took.

Service was decent, waiter took our orders quickly and was informative about the beers and food menu - he was a little slow on bringing us a second round and our bill but the place was picking up in volume so not unexpected.

The beer selection was about average - Your typical IPA / APA / porter / etc main stays with a few other beers with more interesting spins. But the food was probably the highlight for me - Not sure if it was because we were so hungry or if it was warranted but the pizza I had and the sandwich she had really hit the spot - and that spot was our stomachs.

Very good set up, service, and food. Great location. The only thing lacking is World-Class beer.
