The manager was great, greeted our party as we walked in the door and engaged us as we left. While only lunch, food was barely warm. Fries were overdone earlier, then held too long before serving them to our table. 9 people in our party, 8 had luke warm food. One was hot (green chili). Our server was nice, but... More

I'm a lifelong Seattle resident who has enjoyed watching many sporting events at FX McRorys. I was just kicked out of the bar without any warning. I had one beer I was sipping the entire time and we ordered 2 appetizers. Apparently we kissed a few times on a date watching a game while cheering along and someone was uncomfortable.... More

This is a great destination offering steaks, oysters, burgers, seafood & an extensive whiskey selection and 35 beers on tap. We had oysters Rockefeller which were excellent and wild caught salmon which was cooked to perfection. The prime rib was very good. They have quite an extensive menu for all tastes. That Apple to heart with vanilla bean ice cream... More

I remembered the name and the mirrored bar but that was about all I could recall. The volume of liquor up behind the bar is impressive. And each type appears to be alphabetized! The food, however, is an afterthought. I had greasy fried cod that left my stomach in trouble hours later. Nevertheless, it was fun to see the place... More

I have not been here in a few years but some things are just staples in any visit to Seattle and this is certainly one of those places. Mick the owner still greats people every day! Amazing. He is always happy to see a familiar face even if it has been a few years. Had some great service at the... More

In town for a Mariners weekday game; stopped in for a late lunch. Loved the atmosphere, the food and drinks were excellent. My hubby had the seafood stew with a pinot gris, I had the grilled shrimp scampi with a Diamond Knot IPA. An Irish whiskey bar was setting up for happy hour, the representative was very friendly and chatted... More

I stopped by for happy hour. I thought that the food was fresh and quite good. $25 for 3 appy and a beer seems fair also. My biggest disappointment was I ordered horseradish when my oysters came to the table but I received it once all my other food was done. Bit of a wait for something so basic. The... More

I first visited this bar/steakhouse back in 1977, with my future wife and friend. We were there for a business convention. I loved the bar and the food. I am also a fan of the American iconic artist, Leroy Neiman. In 1980 the artist painted the bar as one of his bar series. I was fortunate to purchase one of... More
