I have been here several times and they always have something new on tap that is local and I have not tried. They have also a list of what will replace the beers currently on tap to entice you to return. Amazing place for a great selection of Washington beers.
Good vibe. Good service. The food is reasonable. Thereís a very nice selection of beer on tap. This brewpub puts out their own beers as well as putting on some very good taps from the area and the region. Very good spot to check out.
I absolutely love this place. Beyond the calm, chill, and not pretentious atmosphere, the friendly service even when busy, the option for vegan friendly hearty food thatís great, and the fact that they have somewhere around 24 taps, that rotate consistently of course, but...they also donít overcharge (!!), which these days happens not as often as it used to.
This is for these reasons, which are all incredibly solid, why this is now what I would consider to be thee taphouse to regular and/or stop by when youíre in town.
Good location in Greenwood, next door to Flying Bike, and walking distance from Chuckís on 85th. Iím very impressed with this place, and continue to recommend it to people who are visiting the Seattle area. Dozens of taps, with at least a dozen guest taps. Impressive food menu, that shys away from the fancy stuff, and sticks to what I enjoy, which is burgers and sandwiches and such. Good beer, good food, and a huge outdoor beer garden. Always enjoy coming here.
A nice large tap room with a large bar and some indoor seating but the kicker is a nice outdoor area. Server was happy to talk about beers and was prompt with everything. A great number of their own beers on tap and samplers were available as well. Food was very good with a variety of sandwiches available. Prices seemed fair for the area. A pretty great taproom.
Really liked this place. The cheddar mustard dipping sauce with the pretzel was divine. The new Naked City beers on tap are great, and the prices are a touch below what I normally see. ambiance is nice. Will be back often.
Iím lucky enough to live within walking distance - this is one of Seattleís best beer bars, and they made it especially interesting when they opened their own brewing operation recently. The beer selection is fantastic - constantly rotating taps, usually featuring a few of their own and a good deal of other regional brews, as well as a bunch of other really great domestic and imported craft brews. Iíve seen RR Consecration, LA Angelís, and The Abyss on tap here - so they know their stuff. The service is prompt, and friendly enough, though as often as Iím in I donít feel like they recognize me as a return customer. Kids are allowed in the restaurant portion, but Iíd certainly stop short of calling it a good place for kids - this is definitely geared toward people who know and like really good beer. My one complaint is the food. The menu doesnít change much at all, and whatís there could be a lot better. The pretzel is great, but the rest of the menu seems like itís only there because it has to be. The place is absolutely packed on a Friday or Saturday night, but they could be raking in the afternoon crowds with a better food selection. Theyíre now open at noon over the weekend, but are still closed until 4 p.m. on weekdays - something Iíd love to see change. Itís a great place overall, though, and Iíll certainly remain a return customer.
One of the top new taphouses to hit Seattle recently; a beautiful, long bar seats probably 20 or more; another slender bench in the bar area for more seating and a host of tables; 20+ taps of mostly local offerings as well as their own brews (look forward to more!); havenít eaten their yet, but the menu has a german feel to it that more than just the average pub grub; was packed on a recent friday night, so this has been a hit with the neighborhood
(Visited 09/2013): Naked City Taphouse is in a quaint neighborhood in the Greenwood area of north Seattle. It is located on Greenwood Avenue off N 85th, and street parking seems plentiful in the vicinity.
The interior features a long bar along the right side, with table seating opposite, plus a couple high tables near the front windows. The motif is wood and dark red, and there is a large mirror behind the bar behind the many taps. Artwork on the walls as well.
Naked Cityís tap totals over 20, with 10 of them being house beers. On my visit that included a few different IPAs, a Porter, Pro-Am Rauchbier, and a couple Pale Ales. All of the beers were above average, and they do flights. There are also guest handles from breweries like Ballast Point and Everybodyís Brewing.
Service on a slow weekend afternoon was good. The bartender was knowledgeable about the beers and attentive throughout my visit.
Food at Naked City is pretty good. I enjoyed my sandwich.
All in all this is a brewpub outside of downtown Seattle that is worth visiting.
