On WEDNESDAYS we have our Steak Night where our Chef Jason Slusher will come up with a different Steak Themed Special!!! Established in 1982. Doofers was originally built in 1973 as a tavern by a man named Walt Griffin. The original name of the tavern was called Walts Griff-Ins. In 1974 Walt sold the tavern to Bob Lenhart who held a contest drawing names out of a hat as to what the name of the tavern would be. Bob's three year old daughter was running around the house saying the name Doofers so he decided to put the name into the drawing as well. With the luck of the draw that was the name that was picked & the name Doofers has stuck ever since. On June 1st, 1982 Gus Routos purchased Doofers Bar & Grill & has been the owner/operator for the last 35 years. When Gus became the owner of Doofer's it was just a simple tavern but he saw potential for more & decided to rebuild it as a Bar & Grill. In May of 2000 the current Doofers Bar & Grill was built & in 2007 went through a second expansion to increase capacity.

“Nice place, friendly staff, great foof”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

We've been to Doofers several times for breakfast and have pretty much had good food and service. Portion sizes are very generous and the coffee is typical diner coffee. We can't believe that in the Seattle area there would be any difficulty getting a good coffee!

“Get the wings!!!”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Heard about this place on the radio a couple times. Finally went to check it out. Glad I did! There wings are beyond delicious and huge. They are giant pieces of chicken, covered in homemade buffalo sauce. They also have several different types of sauces you can get. There drinks are also good and a good value. They also do take out. This place is also fun on game days whether it is sounders or seahawks, it is packed and full of rooting fans. Highly recommend this place!! BTW, it is a bar but they also have a nice family section.
