I saw the sign for this pub when I was walking the skyway from the ferry. It's kinda hidden on a little eside street. Since I love owls, I had to try it based solely on the name. It is totally chill! The staff is super friendly, the beer is served promptly, and the people who come here care about... More

Too tired to go out again, hubby called in an order and went to pick up our order. Food was hot, delicious and well prepared. Hubby said service was great. We will dine IN the restaurant on our next visit.

Go here! Great fish and chips (the best we had in Seattle). Really cold beer. Good service. Convenient after stepping off the ferry.

Do the Happy Hour 4-7, great choices for drinks and food. Don't pass up the fish & chips. Location, difficult, but worth trying to find it. Was recommended by our tour guide.

We stopped by for happy hour because it lasted until 7. We both had the fish and chips. I am not a fish and chips expert, but I would say they were average. However, the tartar sauce was great! I did like that the fish was not heavily breaded. Despite not being overwhelmed with the food, it was a great... More

Great fish n chips, good beer, great soup of the day (chicken dumpling). They do have a seating area in hype bar area and separate from the bar area and have a full menu. Enjoyed the happy there!

We just had drinks there (although it was recommended to go during happy hour when the food is discounted and they supposidly have the best fish and chips..can't comment since we didin't have any). However, there was a guy who had one too many and they did a good job of not letting him ruin our time or get any... More

A fabulous pub, it has been there (same owners) over 20 years! Excellent food, friendly and attentive servers! Their 3-7:00 Happy "Hour" is a great deal! Good fish and chips, we also tried the hummus platter- yum! Will return again before we leave! Highly recommend if you are looking for a very casual, friendly place with creative and curious decor!
