A Pub that is run by a beer geek. This is yet another gastro-pub in Seattle (in the key of Brouwer’s) with a kick ass food selection and a great selection of beers. With a varying selection of bottled and draft ales, this place offers alot of surprises almost daily if not weekly. Try the clam chowder, or the cheese plate. Another bonus is the number of hosted beer dinners per year that they put together. Such previous dinners included Silver City, New Belgium, Stone, and many others. Well worth the visit. Cheers

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 TV’s 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 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)

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

I stopped in here after a visit to Pike’s Market. It is about a ten minute walk. I didn’t get a chance to see the bottle list due to time constraints but the taps more than made up for it. Along with one macro there was Hair of the Dog Fred, DFH Festina Peche, Georgetown 9 lb Porter and some other gems. It took a while to get service even with the place totally empty. Apparently paying customers should not show up until the lunch rush. I’d recommend stopping by if you visit the market but don’t spend too much time here. There are a few better options in other parts of town more worthwhile.

Nice selection of West Coast/PNW beers and an upbeat, cosmopolitan, near-waterfront sort of atmosphere that one is likely to find in downtown Seattle. Ask what’s on, though, as others have mentioned, as the wait staff seemed to have a good idea of what’s what even if the beer list didn’t. Food was not bad a bit pricey.

Got there right as the lunch crowd was clearing out, but it still a bit hectic - I guess folks will linger over lunch as long as possible on the last working day before Thanksgiving. Anyway, the service was attentive and accomadating but a little harried. I was impressed with the beerlist, although, as other have mentioned, you can almost ignore the printed list. The waitress had a hand written real list. Food was a notch above standard pub food and very tasty. Nice place.

We arrived at the Pub around 8:30-9:00 on a Saturday night. They said she would be closing because it was so dead and I thought she was kidding. She wasn’t. She was. Good enough to pour us a round and a sample, I also got some directions to a restaurant. We enjoyed the beers and the nice staff. Too bad we couldn’t try the food. I would love a chance to go back and try more of their North American selection of brews.

Nice little joint near Pioneer Square. Stopped in just before quittin’ time and ordered a bottle of ??, which they didn’t have, so I settled on a Doggie Claws. Nice place to people watch, my waitress was really nice, and the selection was pretty good. Looked like it could get a little stuffy in there (shirts, not atmosphere) with yuppie types and the like, but for the most part seemed like a hangout for people in the area businesses. Nice place to stop if you’re in that area of town.

God, did I get the total opposite opinion of bitbucket. I thought that place was snooty with a rude waitress and I loved the low background jazz music. Menu would be impossible to keep up to date, so I don’t know why the print it. They should just put beer list on wall. Loved the fact you can get 6 BIG sampler glasses for $7. Great place to sample top notch beers and the best place to drink downtown Seattle IMO.

Cozy little bar that tends to upscale withut being stooty, Nice layout, and a nice selection of beers, and better than average food. The service was outstanding - if they were any more attentive it would border on being pushy. The beer list is sadly out of date, but they do have several stellar taps. The live music was pretty terrible.

Collins Pub is a comfortable place to retreat from the bustle of Pioneer square, comfortable in an upscale but not imposing sort of way. They’ve got a diverse and interesting set of taps, and a bottle list that featured several high quality surprises that are none too common locally.

For a pub that so clearly caters to beer lovers, the service was disappointing. Despite the place being empty, the waitress seemed annoyed that I wanted to look over the taps, and instead told me to order off the printed list. So I did...and the first three things I chose were not available. Instead of apologizing, this seemed to put her out further (In a "why couldn’t I just order a Stella and leave her alone?" sort of way). As my friend and I went through a half-dozen beers over an enjoyable three hours, our interest in the beer list (kept tasteful, not mega-geeky) and our abortive efforts to order brews that were listed but not in stock were met with barely disguised impatience. The waitress also appeared to know next-to-nothing about the beer she was serving.

The food was quite good in a pub food sort of way, and all in all, I’d be very happy to return if only for some of the exotic taps and bottles. Perhaps different servers would lend a different feel to the place.
