English Style Pub, Good Food

On our overnight trip in Seattle, we decided on dinner at the Elephant. It was a Saturday night weekend before Christmas in Downtown Seattle so everyplace was packed and even this restaurant required an advanced reservation for dinner during peak times. The service was definitely above average and... read more

Went here based on the recommendation of a server at another restaurant. He told us that this is where he goes after his shift is over, usually right when they are about to close. This place did not disappoint! Easy walking distance in downtown. It is a English-style pub. Wide variety of drinks. The late happy hour menu was terrific.... More

While attending a convention in Seattle stopped in for early dinner with some friends. Neat atmosphere and food was good. I had fish & chips and we shared a hummus plate app. I'm not a hummus fan, but their hummus was great! Wait staff was helpful and attentive.

Stumbled upon this place for lunch. For starters service was outstanding from the moment we walked in and were seated. Our server was fantastic and pointed out the highlights on the menu. The poutine was excellent and coming from a Canadian trying to find good poutine in the USA it was on point!!!

Great downtown location, good food and nice selection of draft drinks, cocktails or other beverages. We come here every year when we do our annual Christmas trip downtown.

Awesome location, inside the Motif Hotel, downstairs. Great for connivence if you don't want to go outside after traveling all day. The bartender, Charlie is very knowledgable about cocktails and beers and very personable. We only had appetizers. The pretzel bites were more than bites! Awesome, hot and yummy served with a nice creamy mustard dip. The chicken fingers were... More

Many different places nearby offering happy hour specials, however Service is Excellent, and there is many beers, ales, ciders, stouts on tap.... More

This restaurant was a good place to meet friends and share OK food and conversation. Since the remodel, the pub does not look as welcoming and it is incredibly noisy. I looked forward to its reopening, but now that it has, I don't think I'll be back.
