Located in the touristy Pike Place market, this is a great place to seperate yourself from the wife and kids and grab a beer while they wander through all the craft booths and marvel at the salmon tossing.
Place is big and takes a few minutes to get your bearings. Walls are covered with beer memorabilia, much of which pays homage to Seattle's beer past. Very festive fun atmosphere, the crowd was a mix of thirsty tourists and young local urbanites. Had a sampler flight and I found the offerings good but not great. (519 characters)

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. (194 characters)

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. (1,380 characters)

Very good set up, service, and food. Great location. The only thing lacking is World-Class beer. (98 characters)

This place is near and dear to me. I first visited in 1997, when craft breweries were popping up all over the Pacific Northwest. The combination of funky location, great food and interesting beer had me hooked immediately. Each of my return visits have been equally favorable. They make great burgers, but my absolute favorites are the Penn Cove Mussels or the fish and chips. For me, no visit to Seattle is complete without a stop by the Pike Pub & Brewery. (458 characters)
