“Great beers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

We only had beers here - but the atmosphere was wonderful. The decor was funky as was the owner. It's at the very top of the stairs at the trolley stop.

“A Little of Everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Perfect place for everyone in your group.

The Foodie- Try the Nachos or Spuds.
The Artist- View Chihuly's world famous artwork, on loan from the Glass Museum. For free.
The Musician- Live bands from the northwest. Kry is a long time favorite.
The Drunk- They have tons of beer on tap, not to mention great bartenders that know their drinks.
The Philanthropist- This pub has so many fundraisers a month its amazing. Love that they support local issues and work with the community to raise funds for many diverse projects.
The Gamer- Did you know they have a room full of games? Pool, Darts, Video Games, Table Soccor, ect.

I love this place.

“Nothing spectacular but fun karaoke.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

We went here last night with friends to eat dinner and do some karaoke. The place is not fancy, interesting but certainly not romantic or anything. I ordered the pan fried oysters. The were good but I almost could taste rancid grease on them. I had a salad and bread with it, both adequate. My husband had a burger and he said it was good but undercooked for his taste. The waitress was good.

The karaoke was very fun but so many singers that it started at 8, we left after 11 and had only gotten to sing once. We did get bumped out of our spot on rotation, which is irritating.

This was our anniversary, so it was fun to be with friends but not very spectacular.
