I had the horseraddish infused Bloody Mary and it was spicy and delicious! Double YUM, For breakfast we ordered the chicken fried chicken breakfast....very good. And the corned beef hash... More

Thank God the Seahawks won the game early in the day! My wife and I were planning to host a few people (20+) for cocktails as a get together of friends, family and new to town folks. We attempted to find a location, but as it works out, our niece said "We're going to Hattie's" A small pub room, at... More

We ate at Hattie's Hat our first night in Seattle and it was delicious. I got the fried chicken sandwich and it was fantastic. My friend had the best tater tots of her life. To make things even better our waiter (Momo) was super friendly and fun. I would definitely go here the next time I visit.

We stumbled upon this place quite by accident when we noticed their sign saying " Burgers & Bloody Mary's". "Interesting combo" we though so we wondered in. Ordered two Bloddy Mary's as we checked out the menu. We are not really burger people but they got us with the tilmock cheddar and the brioche bun. This was one of the... More

Stumbled upon this eclectic place for brunch on a recent day in Ballard and will return on our next visit. We were quickly seated in the front section in a well worn booth overlooking a wonderful old carved bar. The prompt, friendly service was complemented by quickly delivered delicious food. The " Swedes" Swedish pancakes were delicious and my husband... More

OK. I'll be controversial here and give this rightly called "hole in the wall" bar an excellent rating. Obviously, it cannot measure up to the more expensive gourmet establishments in Seattle, but it succeeds because it is friendly, very neighborhood oriented, moderately priced and does not try to do what it cannot deliver. All this and in our favorite neighborhood... More

Charming ambiance with an old 1902 bar originally installed there and small, wooden booths. Service was perfect. The sandwiches are incredible; salads fresh and yummy. So glad we didn't miss going to Hattie's Hat in Ballard.

Friendly fast service and fabulous burgers! Really great Bloody Mary's that is an appetizer and drink all in one. Fun atmosphere to duck into and enjoy with friends.

Located in the Ballard District this is a fun place with good drinks and great food. Cool old bar that is rumored to be imported from England. Great The Salmon Chowder was delicious-perfectly seasoned and really creamy without being too thick. Just a couple of blocks from the Sunset Tavern and right across the street from the Ballard Hotel.

Since most of the breakfast restaurants were closed in the area on a Monday we ended up at Hattie's Hat a long time establishment in Ballard. The front had very small windows and dark facade- more for a evening bar rather than morning restaurant. The darkness carried into the inside. Yes, a bar at night but breakfast by morning. Sit...
