Stopped in here with my GF while looking for places to live in Burien. I was pleasantly surprised by how nice, clean and big the bar was. They had about 20 of their beers on tap and the ones I had were very good. We also got some wings which were tasty. The service was great and the girls were very helpful explaining the area.
Nice place in West Seattle. great service, good food and beer. The vibe was nice with all kinds of different kinds of people. A nice place to enjoy dinner or just a few brews. Worth the stop.

The interior of this place has a really warm, comfortable feel to it. It can get a little loud in the evening on weekends, however. They rotate their own beer offerings often and also bring in some good guest taps. I like a great deal of their beer. Not everything’s a hit, but there’s usually something good or awesome available. The food has always been reasonably priced and delicious, and the service friendly. Love the stout ice cream.
We showed up at the height of the noon rush, and signed in on the waiting list with some worry about the wait. Turns out that the staff is quick and efficient the food was great, and there were some very nice beers in the sampler. My wife was happy to find Lindeman’s Framboise on tap, and the in-laws went for Heineken in bottles.
Don’t be derailed by the cheesy exterior as this is a great little brewpub; and while I don’t care for too many of their brews, Elliot Bay is certainly doing some interesting things; here they offer the full line of beers (samplers available), above average bar food and an amazing stout ice cream brownie sundae made with the trub from their stout; that dessert is worth the trip alone IMO
My favorite place in W. Seattle. I had their stout and a sunnydale pale ale and I was pretty impressed with both. Good selection of seasonals, including a few belgians. Good service and ambiance, not your typical catering-to-yuppies Seattle brew pub. Food was awesome, definitely worth visiting. Pints are 4.50, which is a bit steep, as was the food, but worth it.
Cool place with a laid back mellow vibe. not terribly busy when we arrived on a Saturday afternoon. Beers were very good, no complaints. Did not have a chance to try the food on this trip. Parking was kind of a pain in the ass, had to walk a little bit, but other than that everything was roses.
Visited in March of 2008, Monday evening. There was a nice crowd in here of locals. I took the last spot at the bar and almost immediately was included in conversation. Nice vibe. The brewpub overall has a nice bar area, bar tables and a larger dining room. All nicely done, with a space for everyone. I only had time for one Pint and a taster, no time for food on this trip. They had a very large number of beers on, so should be something for everyone. Though not outstanding, the beer was certainly good enough to make this place worth a visit. The one word I would to describe this place is comfortable.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
