Description: Spur Gastropub An intimate urban pub in Belltown. Plates to share. Cocktails to entice. Chefs Brian McCracken and Dana Tough opened Spur in Seattle’s Belltown in 2008 and already it’s been recognized by Food & Wine magazine as one of the country’s top restaurants. Acknowledged for turning out some of the best dishes and cocktails in town by local media, the Chefs were selected as "Rising Star Chefs" nationally by the industry insider magazine StarChefs. In addition to earning the attention of Wine & Spirits magazine, their cocktails have made Spur one of Seattle’s top 10 bars. The Chefs’ collaboration dates back to their time in the kitchen at Maria Hines’ Earth and Ocean restaurant, together on Hines’ traveling team at the 2005 James Beard Dinner in New York, and today creating their menus at Spur.

This little hideaway is a wonderful find. Every dish we tried was wonderful, but off the charts were the Smoked Hamachi, Salmon Crostini, and Pork Checks, and heard another table raving about the chicken dish. The drinks are creative. Lots of energy and great atmosphere. Make reservations as the word has got out on this small place and it's busy in the middle of the week. It is expensive, but the food, the service, and the atmosphere is Seattle casual.

Amazing food...tried three different bites including the salmon crostini, and each thing was one of the best things I ate in my life! And you can get pretty spoiled with good food in Seattle. Definitely recommend.

We really enjoyed our meal. We followed our servers advice and got a few different dishes apiece. We shared everything. The best thing was either the burger or the pork belly. I didn't love the strawberry shortcake dessert (I think it was seasonal though). I don't remember what my drink was but I really liked it.

Whatever you get at Spur, chances are it will be delicious. The drinks on the menu are great, if you go off menu and request certain flavors, you won't be disappointed either. And the food's a delight, no matter what you opt for. What a great place!

We went to the Spur for a holiday celebration and had a wonderful meal. The two of us shared four selections for dinner and we each had a dessert. Our favorite dishes were the salmon crostini (these could be addicting) and the tagliatelle (the foam does taste like parmesan). The seasonings, the presentation, and the portions were perfect.

This is one place that we will come back to. So many other dishes to try. And maybe more salmon crostini.
