We sat outside because it was so nice out. The food was average as was the price. The street people came round to use the bathroom in the restaurant and grab food from plates. While I was eating one of them kept asking are you done with that? He sat at the table next to us and watched me eat... More

In the basement of our hotel, OK bar food, like soup, salad, and burgers. Totally out of keeping with the contemporary Motif above.

We went to lunch at this restaurant after landing in SeaTac and checking in to the Crowne Plaza downtown. It was about a 10 minute walk, which was nice to see sights and learn what was around you. At first I worried about the service, but the waiter then got help and everything was wonderful. We were a group of... More

We were advised by Duck Boat employees to try this bar/restaurant for lunch. It is actually part of the Red Lion Hotel. The food, drinks & atmosphere was good, but nothing memorable. It was a couple blocks from the mall & across the street from City Centre. The waitstaff was friendly, but gave us some else's bill. There was a... More

Walked in here to have dinner on a whim. Nice pub like atmosphere and great outdoor seating. Had French Canadian poutine (french fries smothered in gravy with cheese curds on top) for the very first time here and it was surprisingly delicious. Followed with a French dip style roast beef sandwich. My brother ordered a craft beer and shared poutine... More

Calm and relaxed atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The food was excellent. I had the Reuben - the best I have ever had! I love this place. The next time I'm in Seattle, this will be my first stop.

Right in downtown Seattle on Fifth Ave. Fabulous English décor. Very warm atmosphere, went back again the next night. Great meals - Steak & Mushroom pie with rich beef gravy, and pastry lid delicious- also the Fish and Chips very tasty. The staff were very a tentative and accommodating

This has to be one of Seattle's hidden gems. This traditional British pub offers options for all eaters! We got the traditional poutine (first time I've tried this dish - it's french fries covered in gravy and cheese curds), along with the pretzel sticks and Brussels sprouts! Everything was fantastic, especially the pretzel sticks! Would come back in a heartbeat!

This is a great pub located in front of the Red Lion Fifth Avenue hotel in Seattle Washington. Outstanding service, a great outdoor venue, and a very good variety of food. Loved the shepherds pie!

My friend and I did happy hour here... which was not nearly as good of a deal as I've seen in other places. None of the food was on happy hour and the drinks were only a dollar or two off (discounted). We went on a great, sunny, warm rare Seattle day and the outdoor seating was very pleasant, but... More
