Friendly Staff + A Delicious Chicken Sandwich

Great low key bar beneath the Ace hotel. Typical bar food, so wouldn't venture here for a gourmet experience, but if you're staying in the neighbourhood, it's perfect. Open late, good selection of drinks, and I craved the Blackened Chicken sandwich long after we left Seattle. Had lots of sports... read more

Great atmosphere in a laid back environment. Our server was great and the food was yummy! It's a consistently good place to eat and the service is always reliable and friendly. People who come here are always happy because the service and food is great!

Across the street from El Gaucho where we were staying. Varied menu, great prices, good service, food was well prepared and presented. A variety of beers that we knew nothing about and the server helped choose those that paired well with what we were eating.

Nice corner bar and place to eat. The Cuban sandwich was fantastic and we really enjoyed the polenta fries. The velvet paintings and eclectic decor is fun! If we make it back to Seattle and stay in the same area, I will certainly go back. This is place is everything chain eateries lack, it has personality.

Funky place with good food! We went here our first night in Seattle on a whim. Food was excellent. Décor is as fun as it gets! Who doesn't want to see a wall of 1970's velvet paintings? It was cool. I had the quesadilla and it was really tasty.

Cyclops is a Belltown institution, been around forever and has a cool funky hotel called Ace above it. The food is really good, great burgers and snacks, diverse crowd including the old couple that sit in the window late mornings on weekdays with a glass of wine and their lunch.

It looks a bit grubby from the outside but I think it just needs a window cleaner because it was OK inside. I think it's meant to be eclectic & slightly crazy. Great range of beers & the burgers are highly recommended

This was our first stop in Seattle! It was great sitting outdoors and our server, Susan was very helpful. I had the falafel sandwich and my husband had the fish sandwich and both were excellent and the beer was cold!
