A Fun Irish Pub

A bit worn in the pub, and that contributes to the aged charm, my wife and I had a very pleasant time. The beer choices were adequate, the very large corn beef and Swiss cheese sandwich good and my wife's hummus salad enjoyed by her. We accidentally went in during an hour after 63,000 people left a... read more

This place is in an old building, which was really cool. Do come here if you expect to have an English Pub type experience. The kitchen was closed but they had the best stew and homemade bread available. We're making it a tradition to come here after ever Seahawks game.

Met some friends here who were coming across on the boat. Hidden little Irish sports bar on post alley. Kind of dark but plenty of TV's, great service, good beer specials, and a decent central location to meet folks coming across the sound. Got a little packed for happy hour but well worth the stop.

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 showing our navigator the best route... 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
