Wanted to walk to dinner from where we were staying in West Seattle. With a slew of Mexican and pizza joints this was a refreshing find. Great local brews and delicious food with friendly service and a pub like atmosphere. Worth a visit.

We had lunch on a Saturday around noon. Lots of people here. There was a 10 minute wait for a table for 3. No biggie for us. Great place for families, they seem very accommodating for the younger ones. The service wasn't too bad considering how busy they were. My friend recommended their burgers so I ordered the blue and... More

I have always enjoyed the EBBP on CA, but this past trip was disappointing. I usually order their Italian club. This time it lacked flavor. There were no condiments on it and a shortage of meat. Just two very thin slices of meat. The tomatoes were much thicker than the two meats combined. Also, the bread was dry, and without... More

Went 3/30/16, never been befor, for dinner. Was seated upstairs, as a single person noted that several families with young kids also seated in that area. Ordered the no doubt stout, brewed in west Seattle, so darn good ordered another. Ordered grilled tofu sand which with Cole slaw. Fabulous, but what really sealed the deal was curry aioli served on... More

Can be sometimes loud for my taste, but they try to accommodate me and find a quite booth or upstairs table. The food is excellent. They are loved by the neighborhood. They , selflessly, helped me with a beer-tasting fundraiser for a local charity.

We had several meals at Elliott Bay Brewery while we were visiting our daughter in January and February. We found the service very good, the atmosphere cozy and the food was excellent. We tried several soups, sandwiches, and specials of the day. Our favorite was the delicious fried fish sandwich served only on Friday. The sandwiches were all very large... More

This is a good place to grab a bite and a pint. The wood booths are firm, as are the tables and chairs. They do push families with kids upstairs and to the back, where it's loud and kinda overly hot, and could use new carpet. But some families probably like that.

Seattle is renown for its breweries and Elliott Bay is one of the reasons. It has a great old pub look, a menu to please vegetarians, seafood lovers and carnivores and, of course a wide selection of its own brews. You have to try their Demolition Ale! In the past year I've been there 3 times and look forward to... More

We ate there with family, including two kids under 4. The server was patient and efficient, and the food was quite good. Two had the ahi tacos, I had a burger. It was done to perfection, nice sear and pink. I was impressed with the great selection on the kid's menu, lots of healthy, fun and finger friendly options.

We have been here several times. The food is consistently good. The service is prompt and polite and one is not hurried to vacate their tables. It does get a bit noisy as the area is somewhat small. The booths are cozier and quitter than the tables, but either is acceptable. We will continue to visit here when in West... More
