Downtown, so walkable from anywhere in the heart of Seattle. Beer selection demands a visit from any serious drinker. Visited during a supposed Boundary Bay cask night that turned out to be one cask of somewhat stale IPA. Regional and local selection were very good, food was above average and somewhat eclectic for a beer bar. Donít have much else to say - typical tables on the patio, tables up front, then bar, then booths and dining tables. Dark in the back. Young crowd.

Conveniently located south of downtown Seattle. Easy as to walk from just about anywhere central. Good tap selection and worth just grabbing a seat at the bar. There are a few tables outside for a nice day too, which I happened to time perfectly. Who says it always rains in Seattle? Well worth a look-in for some good beers on tap.

(Visited 09/2012): Collins Pub is located on 2nd Ave in downtown Seattle. It was a bit of a hike from our hotel so not sure what the parking options are.

The interior is brick with a pea soup green and burnt sienna color scheme. Hanging lights with a floor to ceiling curtain in the back. The bar is on the left side and there is a large chalkboard listing the beers. High tables next to the bar and booths in the rear. Multiple banks of taps behind the bar.

Collins has around 20 taps with several regional offerings from Elysian, Deschutes, Anacortes and others. Other craft brewers like Epic and New Belgium are present. They also have over 50 bottles from brewers like Elysian, Hair Of The Dog, Deschutes and Lost Abbey. Some imports as well like Chimay, Maredsous, Duvel and De Dolle.

Service on a weekday evening was good. Our server was knowledgeable about the beers and made good food recommendations.

Food at The Collins pub is eclectic. We stuck with appetizers (Charcuterie plate and cheese) and it was good.

Overall this is a good gastropub in the downtown area.

Decent spot, a little bit of atmosphere and a long beer list. Well-chosen tap handles. There were quality issues with some of them (diacetyl in St. Rogue Red, stale Liberty Ale) but they took the glasses back no worries. Staff know beer, always a good thing. Good place for a pint in downtown Seattle.

Visited on Feb 11, 2008 with after4ever. Nice tap list, as well as bottle selection. A refreshingly updated web site got me prepared for the visit. Old, classic pub atmosphere with nice plasma TVís throughout. The front bar features some comfortable wood booths, past bar appeared to have a bit more space to spread out. Overall, nice vibe and a great selection. Really wanted to try the food, but arrived after the kitchen had closed. Thanks for meeting me out Tom!

82 = ★★★Ĺ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)

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

A pleasant bar just South of downtown seemingly patroned by business types with a more than decent selection. I have not checked the bottles at depth, but good local alternatives are to be found on draught and it is atmospherous enough, all kinds of conversations being held around. Certainly not a Seattle must hit, but interesting enough if youíre in the area although steep prices from downtown are to be expected. I did not eat.

I have seen news/events advertised from this pub for the last few years and had wanted to see this for myself. Parking can be tough so look for it or pay for it across the street like I did. I found the place to be a new/clean look with high ceilings and new local art on the walls with a tap list that rivals the best. Russian River, to local flair with Big Al Brewing, Trade Route Brewing and Snoqualmie Falls Brewing there where also ore around 25 taps of some killer brews. I was impressed the food was a tad higher priced pub food I am sure for the location not far from some of the big banks and buildings in Seattle plus you have the football and baseball crowds walking buy. This is a great place I am sure I will be back. The bartender knew there product and how to sell the beer.

A busy, efficient city-centre bar with good quality and choice of beers. Probably the best city centre bar, certainly worth a visit. I was pleased it was not just pints or thimble-size tasters!

A solid bar in Seattle in the Pioneer Square area near downtown. Oddly when I was there on a Tuesday evening it was fairly empty. The tap list was decent for an out-of-towner, although I suspect it is not so interesting for a local. Mostly local offerings- Yakima, Almanac, Fort George, Black Raven, etc. The tap list featured on the online menu was pretty out-of-date (and unfortunately was more exciting than the actual list). Nonetheless, the tap list is large enough that you can find something to choose from. I did not order any food. Overall, the beer list was not terribly exciting when I was there, mostly just solid local offerings, and the atmosphere was a bit quiet but that does not seem to be the norm based on prior reviews...

I visited this place a couple of times in my recent stay. Seems like a typical resto-bar that can get pretty busy. The service is a little sketchy, but not awful. They have about 20 beers on tap, with a handful of local and interesting beers. They have TVs and food, and the like. There is a bigger dining area towards the back where the bathrooms are, and a patio out front. Solid, but not spectacular. An easy walk from downtown.
