I was visiting a buddy in Seattle and searched the BeerFlies to find some decent places to have a beer. This place showed up on the search so we decided to give it a go.

The place looked to be separated into a restaurant section and a bar section. As we had just come back from being beaten up by a mountain (some may call it skiing but I sure felt like I had been in a fight), we didn't want to stink up a normal restaurant. We fit right in at the dumpy bar though. If you don't mind a somewhat dive-ish atmosphere, the bar area won't bother you. It was not crowded at all, but there was only the bartender working the place. She didn't come to our table to take our order, but was attentive enough when we ordered at the bar.

I was impressed with the selection of beer. Outside of having their own beers on tap, they have a good selection of bottled beers and a few guest taps. The taps that night were various Lindeman's offerings and an Ayingers Doppelbock. For bottles they had a selection of Samuel Smith's, Westmalle, Ayinger, and a couple other breweries I can't remember off the top of my head. I had a Westmalle Dubbel (served in the appropriate Westmalle glass) and the Pike Oatmeal Stout. The Westmalle was of course very good, and the stout was good but a little sweeter than I like.

The food was good. Three of us ordered fish 'n chips, and another ordered some salmon. The fish and chips were quite tasty.

I would recommend going to this place for food and beer. If I lived in Seattle, I would probably go to this place on at least a monthly basis.

Went for lunch and it was fairly packed with a mix of tourists and locals. Pub looks nice all decorated in red and black with plenty of vintage beer memorabilia throughout. It is mix between chain restaurant and vintage eclectic bar. They had about ten of their beers on tap and a lot of the offerings I could get in bottles back east. I had a pint of the stout and blonde ale. Both were way better than I remember. For lunch I had the spicy wild salmon. Delicious combination of flavor although a bit on the heavy side. Overall, this was a good experience and a place that I would revisit if I was in town.

This seemed like the one place to try in Seattle's downtown. I found it catered more to the touristy crowd. Their stout was good. most of the beers were meh.

Took the tour with a friendly and informative staff member. Brewery is in a restaurant type setting. Unfortunately, I had a couple of flights and wasn't impressed.

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!
