Right in the hear ot historic Columbia City in Seattle, the Columbia City Ale House offers a variety of foods for both vegetarians and meat-eaters. Their spinach salad is excellent, and they offer regular nightly specials at a reduced price, which are also very good. Although I haven't had the courage to try their fish tacos, others have told me they're very good. The Columbia City district has a music evening on the first Friday of every month, and you usually will find some kind of musicians playing here also. They also have a good variety of beers on tap and in bottles. Service is excellent, even when it's crowded. This is one of my favorite places.
