T.S. McHugh's Brings Irish to Seattle

Everyone loves a good Irish joint, including me (a Greek). This place hosted our family and business for a big dinner before a show in the city. They gave us the back room, and ironically this is one of the rare restaurants in Seattle that does not close in that really awkward 3 PM to 5 PM time... read more

The food was excellent; big portion, perfectly-done crust, good veggies and moist chicken. It was a very good meal, and the price was modest for Seattle at $17.95. Thursday evening and not crowded; slow service (9 minutes)to get drink order placed; after our order for six was taken, our food arrived in moderate amount of time and served our three... More

Very good food. On the way to the theater at Seattle Center, we stopped at McHugh's for dinner. It was not especially crowded, and after the order was taken, our food arrived fairly quickly, but the server took a long time to take our order and to bring the bill when we were done. The Irish soda bread was wonderful.... More

in all fairness, we are not drinkers when we wander about, but the bar looked amazing! We went in for dinner. I had this incredible (huge) salad - it could feed two!. We had a chicken pieces appetizer and my husband had the fish and chips. The fries were fine. The chicken and fish were in the fryer just a... More

Husband and I enjoyed a quiet dinner here. We each ordered the TS burger. Mine was a little overcooked (I had asked for medium and it was well done). However, the flavorful toppings more than made up for it. Also the fries were seasoned well and cooked to perfection. I would have liked to have tried the freshly made pot... More

This place is amazing! It has a very rustic charm and is in a good location. We had the Guinness Pie and the Fish and Chips. We really enjoyed the food and the service was great! Would recommend.

We came in late after the Mariners game (10 pm) with our teen daughter. Server seated us quickly and took our order. There was a group in the adjoining banquet room singing Irish songs which was a nice touch (I guess they come in almost every Thurs night to sing together and drink beer/whiskey). We had wine and a Ploughman's... More

Apparently this is place is a brewpub preying on tourists. Long wait for a table. Indifferent service. My wife got the beef pot pie which I admit was good. The bread was good. I got the flat iron steak sandwich which was the smallest steak I ever ate. Maybe 3 inches by 2 inches at best. Along with that came... More

There were lots of tables available at 5:30 in the afternoon on a saturday...But... the manager chose to seat us at a dinky little table near the beer kegs at the back of the restaurant. When we asked to move to a bigger table he said no ,they were fully booked. we left. Obviously they do not like tourism.
