Tried to go here for lunch Saturday 8/13/2016. Was closed for business and space is for rent 😧 Don't know if they have moved location or went out of business.

This was a return visit and we were a bit disappointed. Took ages for anyone to notice we were waiting to be served and the place wasn't busy! However, once we'd ordered, the drinks and food came quickly. The burgers were as tasty as I remembered and the chips/fries are to die for but..... the place felt like an ice... More

Thanks for coming by again, Caroline, and your kind words regarding the food. I apologize to the slow service, we're usually better than that. If you have a minute, I'd appreciate any further feedback you could offer, and details of time of day you were in so I can follow up with our staff. We always try to learn from... More

We sampled three IPA's and two of the were warm, but service was good and the nachos were good. A little pricy.

I apologize for the warm samples. Thanks for the heads up, I double-checked our beer cooler and made it a little colder. Cheers! -Jeremy More

Great selection of beers on tap and bottled. Good atmosphere and very nice food. Nothing too fancy, but there are other places for that! Nice friendly staff and a good location make this a great choice.

We checked out The Spitfire our first night in town because we didn't know much about the area and it was right across the street. We ended up going back again. The food and drinks were quite good, especially for a kind of 'sports bar' type place. I had the grilled cheese and the grilled caprese sandwich, both were quite... More

The server knew more about beer and what to try than I have experienced before. They have a great IPA beer selection with many NW local beers. The food was all made from scratch. I had the tuna sandwich (a staple for me) which was really good with just a touch of fishy. Side of fries was a bit under... More

This is a great place to watch a game. There are TVs everywhere so you can pretty much sit anywhere and have a good view. The tomato soup was really good but the grilled cheese was underwhelming. There's a great selection of beer as you expect in any Pacific NW establishment. Our server was super friendly, perhaps too much so.

A great place to watch the NFL, a terrible place to eat. There's not really much more to say, except that the service was pretty average too.....

Shared an upper service area with a group of 30 football fans. The service was very good, but the burger was out of this world. Fresh bun, perfectly cooked patty, and several options to choose from to add to the burger. Sweet potato fries on the side, a fellow group member had the Ahi Tuna Salad. It was beautiful.

Great bar, good selection of beers, good menu, large portions, reasonable prices. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere, great staff, what more could you want? Hopefully I'll be back this way soon, I'll be sure to drop by.
