I loved wood and open feel of the Elysian on Capitol Hill. Very neighborhood feel with a selection of draft and bottles for purchase. Didn't try the food, but sat in watched football on a Sunday afternoon.

Didn't grab any food here, but the atmosphere is nice. The place is fairly small so not the best place to cart any little ones, but Elysian is always experimenting and you can bet they have something new. The quality of those brews varies wildly, but I recommend putting this place on your list for a place to stop with friends.

Went here after the Sounders game to grab a brew before heading up north. Decently busy with a good vibe going on...but that was quickly squashed by the multiple jerks we encountered who worked there. Mediocre beer. Avoid.

Being from Seattle ive been to this place a few times. Beer is mediocre and so is the food. Don't bother going if the Seahawks or Sounders are playing, you wont get in. Its overpriced for the beer but you're paying fpr the location, I guess.

I came in here not long after they'd sold to AB INBev and that kind of tainted my experience. It shouldn't have but my mind couldn't help feeling a bit resentful.

There were lots of beers in a cooler for to-go sales and a big restaurant feel to the place (Capitol Hill location). Something about the place was sterile and I guess another thing that rubbed me wrong was the liquor on display too. I want a brewery, not a bar, when I visit a brewery or one of its satellites.

Still, the beers here tasted pretty good and the service was fine. Beer selection varied and there were some unique offerings I wouldn't just find in a store. Worth a visit, I suppose.
