An Irish Pub with a live band playing on a Saturday night. What more do you want? The dance floor was a good size so although hopping it didn't become a mosh pit. Just a great vibe. Warm, authentic. Can't wait to get back.

We loved eating in a Legendary 100 yr. old establishment. They have to be doing a lot right to be around that long. We really enjoyed our meals, and the server was great. It really hit the spot on a chilly election night, and they even had live music in the other room, and Irish songs playing on our side.... More

Went for live music. It was one older gentleman and in the hour we were there he only played 2 upbeat songs, all the rest were really depressing. The waitress never came to our table despite the place being empty and she was only waiting on 3 tables when we showed up. The beer wasn't that great either. Could be... More

This was the start and finish of a team building event in the upstairs area. The service and food just may have been the worst I have had. The next day I could not find one of my colleagues that had one good thing to say about the food. Frankly, the only good thing about this place is its location.

On reading reviews of this bar, wanted to check it out when I arrived in Seattle. Got a pint of harp, was disgusting, tasted like the taps had not been used of cleaned in years, if ever! Seen a pint of Guinness been poured while there, the bar tender left the tap running until it overflowed and went off serving... More

Relaxing lunch after a lot of walking in Pike's Market. Good food, friendly staff. We had pasties, bangers and shepherd pie.

Wow, did not expect to have probably the best chowder of my life! Great little nook with outdoor seating, fantastic service and great beer. The rest of the menu looked amazing too!

We visited this pub one evening and spent the next two nights there. Great atmosphere, good food and great service. In particular is their Irish singer, Liam Gallagher, who has been performing there for 3 decades. Thoroughly recommended.
