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

The Irish pub atmosphere here feels authentic and neighborly. We went for an early dinner before a play at Seattle Rep, but many of the other diners/drinkers looked like neighborhood folks. You can't beat the location for Seattle Center events. Our waiter was great, giving my husband authentic input on beers and what to expect, and my cocktail was very... More

We had been to a TS McHughs several years ago and had the same order - Ploughman's platter and Fish and Chips. It was outstanding. On this visit we were disappointed in the fish - it was not as fresh and had a seasoning on it that didn't go well with malt vinegar. The service was good - we were... More

Excellent staff who served six tired Australians late one Saturday night. Everybody cleaned their plates. We had Chicken Pie, Flat Iron steak sandwich, and the rest of us had the Parmesan Crusted Sole. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and we would recommend it as place for dinner for especially on the way home from a big day out.

We were staying nearby and decided to have dinner here. Our hotel gave each couple a card for a free appetizer. When we were seated and our server came over, we pulled our cards out and he abruptly said we could only use one of them. There was nothing on the card that in any way indicated one card per...

Both the chicken and beef pies were delicious and they came with puff pastry on top. They were served piping hot and came with mash potatoes, carrots and broccoli on the side but they lacked flavor or salt. The place is a little dated but with an Opera and Justin Bieber in town we were served quickly. The basket of... More
