“No Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

I arrived on a Sunday evening at 9:05 p.m. hungry. I sat at the bar and requested a bar menu. The bartender was not rude, but not extremely friendly either. I am sure I received the tourist treatment as I was told that the kitchen closed at 9:00 p.m. Although I understand that a Sunday night probably is not the busiest time to keep the kitchen open, maybe offering some pretzels would be nice. I will not be returning. Now I know why it is not at the top of the North Creek list.

“Great Bar in North Creek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Generous drinks; Excellent food (quesadilla w/homemade salsa, burger made with local meat); Super friendly bartender and everyone else at the bar; Great jukebox. What else could you possibly ask for in a bar?

“Good place to meet the locals”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Nice hometown bar with shuffleboard table. Three or four beers on tap, including a couple of "craft" beers. Barmaid was friendly and drinks were reasonably priced. Music was playing constantly, which I wouldn't normally mind, except the speakers were terrible.

“Great quesadillas limited menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Menu is bar bites only -- 3 burgers and 4 quesadillas. 2 people can split a quesadilla, they are huge! We wanted to try the burgers but they ran out, bummer. Quesadillas were very good and the staff is friendly. Craft beer selection very limited. They had a Goose Island seasonal on tap so we were satisfied. Fun atmosphere for a small town joint.
