Great Local Bar

The beer was local and cold. The fries were hot. The people were cool. The whole scene was what a great local bar should be. We've lived near and worked in New Orleans for years, and this place feels like a great joint at home.

We came in for a drink and the band that was playing was super loud. They were playing heavy metal and that's not my favorite. But the drinks were good.

We were told about Central from Dan, our guide from Beneath the Streets. No complaints from my husband and I. It was a rainy day in Seattle and we decided we needed a beer and a snack and this ended up at Central. Truly glad we did. From the food to the service we had a wonderful experience. I loved...

If you want cheap beer, no dress code, and awesome live local music then you must stagger over to the Central. It's small, so expect to share your table with strangers - but this makes it fun. I love this place. Great atmosphere and awesome staff.

This place has some pretty cool history behind it and it has been here forever. I went here to listen to my sons band play. After seeing some other folks food, I decided to give it a try.

Went there for happy hour- $2 pbr's, good and friendly service. $3 sliders which here very good, and $4 for a half rack of ribs and garlic fries. All the food was good, service was quick and friendly and the atmosphere is fun. Check it!
