I'm somewhat of a beer connoisseur and have enjoyed quite a few Elysian beers over the years. We were meeting up with some out of town friends and thought we'd grab a drink and dinner at their flagship 'Public House' in Capitol Hill. As soon as we walked in I was already regretting our decision. It was a particularly hot... More

I like my NW craft ales so when in Seattle thought I would give Elysian a try. I got the last of a small batch of Split Personality which was quite good. But you can find really good beer lots of places. The ambience of Elysian is dated. The seat in the booth was uncomfortable. And the food was lacking... More

A giant beer pub with OK food . Try the Space Dust IPA if your a fan of IPA's. Service was very good and it was busy so that's saying a lot. The food is upscale bar food with some specials that can be tasty but you're not here for food alone!

Great beer so must try some of their specials, although cocktails are really good and fresh as well. Food is ok, would recommend burger and fish tacos!

Never been disappointed in the food. With seating in excess of 400 people, it's built to handle crowds so the noise level can go up during busy times like lunch or during games. The service has always been excellent, whether I am with a large party or a smaller group. I have ordered their Steak Salad several times and never... More

I came here with friends and found myself freezing. Service was good (our waitress was rally nice and had some great recommendations), the food was okay (I had a cheeseburger with fries), my company enjoyed their beer. So far so good, but not the right place for me I have to admit. The design didn't catch my eye, for me... More

Went for drinks and found beer to be much more complex and better than Pike's down the street. Cool spot and atmosphere. Much go if you like interesting yet delicious beer!

The burger and sweet potato fries are really good. I cannot say I've liked everything I've had here, but the service is very good and the atmosphere is friendly.

We stayed in the Capitol Hill area and this place was walking distance from our condo. Great beer and great food for happy hour with decent portions for very cheap. Wings and hummus and burgers were delicious. We were there for a short time but sampled many beers which were all delicious and service was good. Definitely not a fancy... More

Came here because I'm a fan of Elysian beers. Tried two on tap that they do not sell in stores and loved them both. We tried the Poutine on the food menu. It sounded gross and looked even worse, but was soooo good!

Thank lajb
