We came here to see my son's band Moon Darling. We ordered a pizza which was very good. Our server was very friendly. The wine in the bar was good, and the guys at the door were also friendly.

Saw nirvana back in 1991, so when I had the opportunity to visit Seattle the music culture was my main interest. That such a small city could produce so many music legends makes one want to understand the ecosystem. The crocodile is probably classed as...More

We came here for a dinner in the back room. As a side note, Stone Gossard's (Pearl Jam) ex wife owns this part along with her new husband. The place is legendary. All the grunge bands played here at one time. In the front section,...More

Having the good fortune of living a few blocks from here, it’s a regular stop for live music. Last night watching John Cragie on stage reminded me why this small intimate venue is such a great place for a concert with friends.

Saw Cam here on 12-15. First time in this venue since the 90's. Amazing sound, great atmosphere. You will stand the entire show unless you grab a side bench. 4 instead of 5 because of the screwed up will call system. They advertise the show...More

Great shows on stage here and sometimes on the bar. Zakk Wylde rocked the Croc and turned this place into his own Lizard Lounge performing on the bar! Plenty of Croc-tails on the menu, cold beer on tap. If you haven't seen a show here,...More

Amazing place to hear some great music, get a great pizza (the pepperoni) and have a few beers. The bar is a bit of a dive (authentic) - and, the music venue is small (intimate); but, this place is always on my go to list...More
