I tried to go there last week but it was closed and there was a sticker on the door warning future restaurants that the linens were the property of a linen supply company.

We've eaten here several times, and have always been very happy with our meals. Usually the service is very good...last time we visited, though, the bartender had to do double duty by waiting on our table, too, and it was a little slow. It's not a fancy place - but offers live music some evenings and bar trivia which we... More

This Irish restaurant was a great asset to the area, but unfortunately, recently went out of business. I am hopeful that another restaurant will take the reins.

I've eaten here twice. Once for lunch and once for a friday night dinner (the place was packed). The decor is old; the booths are ripped and in disrepair. The wait staff is prompt and accurately brings your order (even if it is the bartender who has a lot to cover). The food is delicious and in abundance and that... More

We were looking for a place to eat in the mid afternoon on a Sunday and decided on this place. It is a spacious location, on two levels. We were seated immediately with an immediate apology because they were very short staffed for the day. The four of us ordered three different dishes, Eggs Benedict, Banger Burger, and Mac &... More

I dropped into A Terrible Beauty for much written about classic Irish pub food and ran into a Trivia contest! Sat at the bar, immediately offered a choice of beers from their lengthy list of choices, and just in time for round 1 of the contest. I didn't do well with the trivia questions (very challenging!) but quite well with... More

I wanted to have a quick lunch and I love Ruebens. Good beer doesn't do any harm also. I had their Rueben before and really enjoyed it. But, their sandwich "The Gaelic" looked really good so that's what I got. From now on I'll be having The Gaelic. The beer was especially good also. I had a Boundary Bay IPA.... More

Great Irish pub in Renton or any where! It's our go to place after a long day working, a place to relax with one of their many draft beers, or just because. The fish and chips are some of the best in Seattle, but my favorite is the fishermans pie. Like shepards pie but loaded with different types of fish... More

We ordered drinks with the meal and we got our drinks in like 30-45 min. Then some other people came and sat right next to us (by then an hour had... More
