Walking into this Post Alley bar, you really feel like you're in Ireland with the dark walls, wood furniture, and the cozy little nooks to sit in while you try one of the many brews. Our server was from Ireland, so the authenticity is thorough!...More

Ate there as soon as we arrived in Seattle. Hadn't heard of it but saw it on one of the tourist maps we found. We weren't disappointed. Interesting location in an alley just above the Pike Place Market. Expect very expensive parking and warnings to...More

We came here for a drink after dinner at the Pink Door. The drink selection was a little limited but good and the service was prompt and attentive. The seating was comfortable and the atmosphere was enjoyable.

Being one that looks for paranormal activity, I heard that Kell's was known to have activity so decided to check this place out. Our bartender, Rory Kell, explained that the current bar was a temporary one and that they were renovating the original restaurant which...More

We stopped in Kell's the last night (7/30) we were in Seattle. I ordered the Shepherds Pie and my husband ordered the Kell's Bookie, a NY steak. Both were delicious! Our waitress was fairly new but she was very pleasant and efficient. We would definitely...More

Nice atmosphere off the main drag. Good draft beer selection. I recommend the Kells stout. I had the corned beef sandwich, which was very good, but not a lot of meat. My wife had a salad and the others in our party got the dungeness...More

Don't even stop here. Service was slow. Food was horrible. I took my cousins from Europe there and it left a bad taste for Seattle. Non recommend.

The Kells is a good place to stop for a pint, or even a meal, out of the bustle of Pike Place market. Located in an Alley a block back from the action it has both inside and limited outside seating. Service was good as...More

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.
