Get the Fish n Chips

Good ambience, excellent fresh fish n/chips (their speciality); good billards, beer and music. Location is tough to find, but just ask any hotel bellman and they will direct you, or use yahoo maps and they'll escort you via phone! In a small alley, but friendly and good vibes.

I go to the Own & Thistle every time I'm in Seattle. Its a nice friendly pub with friendly staff and customers. Almost anyone feels right at home. Its on Post Ave. which is more of an alley than a street. Post is about 1/2 a block toward the waterfront from 1st Avenue, and 1/2 a block from Alaska Way... More

Though I've been only once, and though I didn't love my meal, my experience was overall good and I would return if ever in downtown Seattle. It was Halloween, and friends and staff were gathered mostly in costume. I took my time with the menu, hemmed and hawed over some nice-looking fare, but settled on a steak sandwich. It wasn't...

We wandered in after seeing signs for Owl 'N Thistle on the main road. What a pleasant surprise! Nice cozy atmosphere and they even projected the ALCS game on the wall in the back. Would definitely go back.

We are here for lunch, after having fish and chips several places we finally found an authentic British taste. We would definitely recommend trying this little pub!!

Popped into The Owl 'n Thisel just last evening for a pint. Neat atmosphere, and decent taps. They had the World Series on - wouldn't have guessed it for a 'sports bar', but I guess it was the final game. Didn't have any food, but based on the vibe there, would definitely return to try!

Go here between 3pm and 6pm and have fish and chips or pulled pork sliders for about $5 each. Fun place to watch a sports event on their giant screen, too.

We decided to do lunch here upon the recommendation of our walking tour guide, Jake. It was exactly as he described. Quiet bar-type restaurant off the beaten track with sensational fish and chips.
