Waking from our hotel to the Seattle Center, we passed this pub. So, when returning we stopped in for dinner. Cold Guinness on tap (2 sizes) and a full bar. Neat decor, reminded us of pubs we visited when in Ireland. Great waitstaff, friendly and efficient. I had the Grilled Chicken Cobb Salad and my husband had the Fisherman's Platter.... More

So, my sister is an electrician at the Seattle Center so I let her choose the lunch place for my wife and me during our weekend trip to Seattle. "There's this great Irish place on 1st," she says. I was a little concerned because, in my experience, Irish pubs don't usually have a ton of vegetarian fare. To be honest,... More

Staff was enjoyable. Ordered calamari appetizer and it came out overcooked, very small portion for the price. Sandwich was tasteless and lacking. Bad bar food.

We spent a good bit of money here for a very average meal of pub grub. Lots of seats and lots of different beers, I recommend you go here to drink not eat.

This is a great place to stop by to snag some reasonably priced drinks while walking around a great area. We had just eaten dinner, so our group didn't eat. However, the bar staff was friendly and the drinks were strong.

If you want to drink -- this is the place -- food is just ok and not very Irish at all. Was pretty empty when we were there and still took a while to get dinner --

Good food, a bit pricey but nice wait staff and quick service. Limited selection. Had the chicken pie and crust was undercooked, doughy.

We stopped in here before the Bocelli concert at the Key. It is within easy walking distance of most Seattle Center parking. The menu has lots of choices. I wanted to eat light so I had the tomato soup, which was delicious, and a salad. Since it was my birthday, my family also ordered me the chocolate torte, which was... More

Went here for supper as it was close to our hotel. This is a neighbourhood bar and restaurant in need of a good overhaul. Despite the atmosphere the staff were friendly and we had very good service. My husband had a burger and I had the prawns both meals were good.

Weird on a Saturday night at 8 pm there was no atmosphere at all in here, kind of quiet, no music. It seemed very busy at about 6 pm when we walked by so we went here for a late dinner. Food was just ok. Hubby was a little disappointed by his steak sandwich which was described as accompanied by... More
