Interesting spot in a sllghtly rougher area in the south side of downtown. Huge old building with high ceilings and a lot of character opening to a narrow-ish bar area with tables in the bar. 20 or so tap list solid local with some national items. Lotta personality.

(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.

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.

Went after a show at the 5th Street Theatre. The place was pretty empty although a few people began to trickle in after we got there. There seemed to be one guy working the bar, and he served us as well (at our table). I asked for a beer list and he said to check the chalkboard, which listed their taps. They had about a dozen, all of which were fairly acclaimed, but evidently a lot more bottles, which I never got to try.

Maybe a dozen taps with good variety of beers. Service is typically pretty good, and friendly. The outdoor section is ok, but it’s right on a busy street, and packed Friday afternoons.

Visited a couple times while in Seattle. Nice place little outdoor area bar on left side S come in. Tight space. Few booths up front. More tables in back. Solid enough selection bunch of pacific northwest brewer’s. Couple Belgians. Service was good during midday, little slower at dinner, but not offensively so. Wouldn’t go near the place if Mariners, Seahawks or Sounders have a home game. Food was good, I had fish and chips, wife got. Salad. Onion rings could of been good, but were in one big tangled blob. Not bad prices for area. Overall I like it. Pliny the elder came on when I was there.

Best tap selection in the immediate downtown/ pioneer square neighborhood. Destination for many on the march to sounders games so beware, it will be packed. Knowledgeable staff and the food is well above par. Lineup is NW dominated but usually a surprise (limited release) or two available.

Went for lunch. Has kind of an industrial office feel to it. Tables up front are kind of cosy. Lots of room in the back. Lots of beers, changing blackboard and very friendly knowledgable staff.

A bit out of the way - which means parking is easier than at most places - The Collins is one of my favorites. It’s located near Pioneer Square, so be prepared for the panhandlers. The selection is excellent and rotating constantly. Not quite in the Brouwer’s range, but invariably very fresh. They have a great cross section of West Coast beers, along with handles from elsewhere. I always seem to find a new ale or variant (e.g. a smoked or infused version of a favorite local craft brew) every time I go. The menu is varied and I’ve never had a less than thoroughly enjoyable meal at The Collins. I rate it very firmly in the gastro-pub category. Service is generally very good (with the occasional let-down, which is to be expected). Bar seating is pretty tight, but there are plenty of booths in the back and a few on the side. I really like the tall tables near the front windows. Tthe outdoor seating is lovelyl when the weather allows. Highly recommended.
