Not much to say that hasn’t already been said. Great selection, great food and great people. I never seem to get enough of this place. It can get rather loud when it is packed though.

The selection of beers here is perhaps unbeaten in Seattle. Great selection, and therefore worth visiting. However, the staff can be rude, and the atmosphere unpleasant. Like the Red Door down the street, and other Fremont bars, the fraternity crowd sometimes takes over. Timing matters here.

Not exactly noticeable from the outside, but the inside is another matter. Was there on a weekday afternoon, so was quiet. Great selection of taps, and many interesting bottles I have not seen before. Bartendress was quite knowledgeable, but a bit unfriendly.

I visited this place on a Friday afternoon, and boy was I in for a pleasant surprise. Very spacious, bright interior with skylights. Plent of tables downstairs with a long long bar as well. There is also a surrounding loft-like second floor with more intimate booths I believe. Updated and accurate tap list with coolers behind the taps filled with bottles. Rediculous selection. I had the veal, which was absolutely awesome. The bartender I had was extremely knowledgeable. Bathrooms were tidy. It is very challenging for me to find faults with this place. The best beer bar I have ever been to.

Very nice, clean establishment with a very attractive atmosphere. Plenty of great beer, but the prices for the belgian drafts are rediculous. Duchesse is the only semi-reasonable belgian draft. Other than the price, the food was outstanding and the service was great.

The place is huge, and I almost missed it. If it weren’t for a small, lighted Chimay sign, I would have. Interior had a mountain lodge type of feel. Excellent beer selection that appeared to be primarily a split between local/regional offerings and Belgians. I had halibut, quite nice. Worth going to, glad to see more and more cities with bars like this one.

Have been meaning to update my rating for some time now....I’ve had some of the worst service ever over the past 6 months at various times, once when we were 1 of about 3 tables in there. Yes, they still have awesome beer. Yes, I’ll go back. But, I’m going to do my best to just sit at the bar and not have to deal with the servers. I’ve kind of just stopped frequenting here. Too many other good options in town that try hard to make you happy. Original rating: This place is a must for anyone visiting Seattle...unparalleled selection and a great place to grab a few beers. Bartenders are very knowledgable. Food is great. Yeah, it’s expensive....but well worth it.

State of the art. New construction, mountain lodge feel. Exposed rock, channel steel, and timber. Long beer bar backed with endless bottle coolers (glass fronted). Side bar for spirits. Back room for fireplace. Lots of yups due to the neighborhood, can get crowded. Food is great; they make a good yeoman effort at Belgian dishes. Good steak, good frites, good mussels, good salads. The catch? Spendy. $40/plate if you have apps and a couple of interesting beers. As the years have gone by, the kitchen has come up steadily. It’s easily worthy of your food dollar, the food is easily worthy of the beers it accompanies. Not the greatest restaurant in Seattle, but many very fine dishes. Prices aren’t getting any lower, and never will, but the beer selection is phenomenal and the kitchen is now rock solid.
