The name of this place sort of made me laugh to begin with, and the place itself just made it even better. Sort of a similar decor to some place like Elephant Bar (do those even still exist?). Leopard and zebra print and all that garbage. I guess at least some nice dark stained wood...

Beer selection is not as extensive as some of the other places, but they do have a few local beers (had a Mac & Jackís IPA) as well as the typical macros. Service is fine, typical of any airport, really. Same with the pricing, though not as bad as some airports are.

Decent enough place if youíve got time to kill in the terminal.

Located by A5 gate at SEATAC, we popped into the Africa Lounge for the best part of an hour, prior to boarding our íred eyeí to LHR on 27/05/13. 6 taps and about the same number of bottles in the fridge. Of the 6 taps one was not pouring, the others contained Coors Light, 2 x New Belgium offerings and 2 from MacíníJacks. Bottles included Deschutes and more New Belgium. The place was dead and the server was pretty shocked when asked for a taster of each of the 4 craft beers on tap ! Fair play - he manned the fuck up and did as he was asked!!! We settled on a couple of cans of New Belgium Ranger which came to $13.56 pre tip, so airport prices but not as crazy as JFK! Overall a decent enough airport stop - you may pick up a tick ?!

Super airport lounge! Three mac and jacks brews on tap. Beware of iced pint glasses. Ivars clam chowder was hot and yummy, served in fresh bread bowl. Nachos were excellent airport food with plenty of guac and good salsa. In A terminal.

Great place to kill time waiting for your flight - hard to find airports with a decent selection and this one really shines as it tough to find most M&Jís pours other than the Amber outside the brewery taps.

Didnít mind making a stop here before my flight to Alaska last year. Nice selectionof Mac and Jacks, always a pleasure to be drinking those. Did not eat anything, just relaxed and got my head in the right place because I hate flying.

I like Mac and Jacks so this was a good stop my first visit to Sea-Tac in 2005. It was a bit of a distance but I had lots of time before my flight. I only had M&J beers that I had not had and did not order food.

Itís an airport bar but it happened to be next to my departing gate. When I found out they had all four Mac and Jacks I made a stop. The prices are a bit high as usual for this setting ($5.00 plus tax per pint). It is however probably the best option at the airport. The other one nearby (Seattle Taproom) had only two good bars out of its rotation. The decorations are a nice touch. The food looked good but because I was limited for time I was only able to order the IPA. Stop in here if youíve got time to kill.

As mentioned by others, the big draw of this place is that it has all 4 Mac and Jackís beers (Amber, Wheat, Porter and IPA) as of 12/13/07. Nicely decorated airport bar, and help was actually really friendly and helpful. Didnít have the food yet.

58 = ★Ĺ (Local place tickers only)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Itís an airport bar. As such, it benefits from lower expectations. The selection was M&J, plus some BMC to keep guys who say woo and exchange hi-fives happy. Props to the bartender, who was better than he needed to be.
