We came here for dinner as it was a short walk from Benaroya. We like lamb, so the Irish stew looked good. The meat in the stew tasted like roast beef, not lamb. The list of beer available was uninspiring. Overall it was a big...More

I enjoyed a steak and kidney pie. I've never ordered a steak and kidney pie before, but I felt adventurous. It was good, as were the potato mash and gravy and vegetables on the side. It's a trendy place near Pike Place Market, so it's...More

This is a really great Irish Pub, and is probably the busiest one during St. Patrick's Day, great location, and great options inside.

If you go to their website you will see that there isn't a children's menu. When we were there , we did not notice any children in the restaurant.

Kells Irish Restaurant & Bar is one of Seattle's favorite hideaways. Situated in Post Alley above the historic Pike Place Market, Kells is a fine way to round up a day's sightseeing or browsing at the market. The pub is always alive with folks cooling off after a day's work. The restaurant will be sure to remind you of the Old Country with its warm, cozy atmosphere and traditional surroundings. There's also a patio outside that's a great place to feel the breeze from the Sound and the buzz of the marketplace. We also have a grand celebration every St. Patrick's Day. Kells proudly serves Seattle's largest Single Malt Scotch collection.
