Good Bar in Seattle

Great bar, good beer and the fish n chips went down really well with my colleagues. The only thing that stopped this bar from getting a five, was the small portion size of the Irish stew. Our server Christin(?)a, was very helpful, checking the local traffic situation at least 3 times for us and... read more

Happy hour is busy and bustling, a great bargain for very good food and service. Our waitress was friendly and attentive despite the frantic pace. Fish and chips were delicious, enough for a small to medium appetite. It's a great place to meet with friends and relax.

This restaurant and bar is located in an alley, a little hard to find but well worth it when you get there. This Irish pub has one of the best happy hours in Seattle. It has a happy hour seven days a week. We usually have the hummus dish for happy hour and the pork sliders. They are both a... More

Happy Hour burger is quite big and it comes with home made fries for less than 5 dollars (without taxes). Honestly Burger looks kind of modest - you get thin patty, a leaf of lettuce, slice of tomato, onion and quarter of a pickle - but it tastes really good. Buns are soft, some of the fries may be too... More

Had dinner here and really enjoyed the setting. The service was good but maybe a tad slow. They have a huge big screen TV but also a quieter area away from it. I had the Fish N' Chips. The chips were very good, but the fish, not so much. Certainly not the Best in Town as advertised on the menu.... More

We stopped here for a pre-Sounders game bite and beverage. The staff was great and the Happy Hour deals were excellent, especially b/c you are within 1 mile walking distance to CenturyLink! Don't quote me, but I believe we got some pints for $2.75, a full size burger & fries for under $5, same with the fish and chips. Why... More

I always stop here for the first or last drink after or before getting on the ferry. This is always worth the small walk. They usually have live music, and the drinks are always flowing. The food is great too. You cant go wrong heading to this Irish pub.

Went for a walk, found it, and glad I did! Hows the song go? "I love this bar" Loved the atmosphere, a true irish pub with amazing clam chowder and even better fish n chips. The staff were awesome the Jameson flows like wine and the women flock like the salmon of Capastrano! Get down here have a drink, have... More
