Came here for a drink and a bite with friends, since it was right near my Seattle hotel. The waiter helped my sister choose a beer (since there were quite a few tasty-sounding local brews on tap.) I'm not a beer drinker, so I had the cider, and it was delicious. The food was okay - not the best pub... More

Nice restaurant with an old fashioned atmosphere. Food was blah, price reasonable. We had Fish and chip and calamari appetizer. $23 Service was quick.

We were on vacation in Seattle and this restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel, so we went during Happy Hour to have a few beers and a little bite to eat. My husband ordered the soup of the day- chicken and rice. I ordered a cup of clam chowder. I was extremely disappointed that the chef, cook, sous... More

As this is chain style pub, they have everything you expect; pub food, okay price (although little pricey)...nothing astouding.

This used to be a fun place. We were there Saturday afternoon and Saturday evening, both times there were only a handful of people (which is a clue). No atmosphere, surroundings are drab, and no Irish music on a Saturday night.

T.S. McHugh's is located in the lower Queen Anne section of Seattle and within walking distance to the Seattle Center. I have found the food to be consistently good throughout the years. One of my favorites is the Alder wood Salmon. I would recommend it for lunch if you're in the area. The only downside is that you have to... More

The staff was wonderful and attentive. The food was good, especially the Irish bread to start. The beers were cold, the place was well lit, able to catch a game, extensive menu, and good price point and value.

This seems to be pretty typical of a bar/pub (having had one in the family for many years.) We had reservations for 5 pm Sat., but pushed them to 6 pm. Interior was ok...worn like a pub. Not overly busy, but business was ok. We were seated away from the bar along the wall. Our waitperson came by, gave us... More

The appetizer with the cheese, meat, and fruit was delicious. The sausage on the plate was the best. The chicken dinner was tough but okay, kinda bland. For dessert we had the bread pudding which was good but, the whip cream was not sweet. The service was Great!
