Service is good, food quality is great. Parking is not so great since their move. Burgers are great and their chips are addictive.

This is a converted old home that retains all the charm of such a place. As you walk upstairs to the restrooms, your hand touches the dark wood railing, you can sense the generations who went before you on that stairway. The dining rooms at the top of the stairs take you back to a time when a meal was... More

The atmosphere may be casual but the Main St Ale House is very serious about their beer, ale and menu. The ale house does get noisy but outdoor seating is available for a quieter dining experience. The waitstaff was very knowledgeable about the various ales available. My son raved about the mac & cheese and I opted for the nachos,... More

The Main Street Alehouse is a blend of small counter bar and a moderately sized restaurant. When full, it is quite loud (unless it's nice out and you are fortunate enough to get a seat in the outside area behind the restaurant). The food is really quite good; most entrees come with Main Street Ale House's homemade potato chips---the spicy... More

We were planning to eat at Rainin' Ribs in Lake Forest Park (see that review), and it turns out that they are closed on Mondays. We decided to continue driving on Bothell Way and actually head into Bothell. I found this place when searching on Google Maps. The menu sounded pretty good so we thought we'd try it. SERVICE: At...

My group waited by the 'please wait to be seated' sign while others breezed by and sat down. When we asked if we could get a table we were treated rudely. Our food was good, our service horrible.

Small classic bar/pub in downtown Bothell. Always a number of good micros on tap. Food can be so, so, but the "Spicy Cod" I had last night did not leave anything to wish for. The ones in our party who ordered burgers were not too pleased, but it "passed". Place can be a little bit noisy (bare brick walls) but... More
