Went back for a quick visit. The house beers haven’t changed a whole lot in terms of selection, but they have added several new guest taps, and seem to feature some of the more interesting local brews.
This is the only place I have ever been to in West Seattle but it is certainly a winner. Doug showed us a great time and stuffed us full of outstanding beer and delicious appetizers. If you are in the area I suggest stopping buy and if you aren’t hop on that #22 bus and get down!

Good pub grub in an area that needs it. Nice house-made beers, usually well-chosen guest taps as well. Food is solid. Service is pretty flaky at times; it’s not a hurry-up spot for an efficiently timed meal. Husky Deli across the street makes a natural dessert stop afterward.
The Elliot Bay is a friendly neighborhood favorite. Families, hipsters, and beer geeks alike love this place. The beer is ridiculously good and they have the GABF medals hanging on the wall to prove it. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. The staff is knowledgeable about the beer and always friendly. They produce a nice selection of beers and they are all outstanding. Personal favorites include the dry-hopped IPA, the regular Elliot Bay IPA, and the No Doubt Stout. The Alembic Pale Ale seems to be a very popular choice. They usually have some sort of clever seasonal beer on tap as well. In addition to their self-brewed beers, the selection frequently includes a guest beer or two from other local breweries. You will not find Elliot Bay’s beer anywhere outside of the establishment’s four walls, so if you like good beer this place must be on your list when trolling Seattle’s beer scene. As a duly appointed representative of Beer Church, I am required to say that they do not offer any typical domestic macro-beers on tap—a reality that might be a problem for some people who have yet to be enlightened.
Very family oriented place, meaning during the dinner hour Families go there so Dad can throw back a couple of pints while the kiddies eat dinner. EAT THE CHEESESTEAK!!!
The spinach artichoke dip is good and the Brie wheel is the absolute best appetizer in the world!! The beers are extremely tasty too. The best wsas definitely the Cask conditioned Dry hopped IPA DOug made!!
Lunaweize is the best "american" heffe i have had thus far!!
Interesting joint in an interesing area. We were in and out with a flight of samplers and soem appetizers but the food and beer are decent and the service was aceptable.

Located in a artist, hippie area, it’s a medium sized building located across the street from a good burrito restaurant. Was able to try a number of beers, including a couple of IPA, some on cask. Elliot Bay got especially busy after 5pm, so you’ll have to have patience with the waitstaff.
Elliott Bay brews their own and doesn’t bottle it so stop by to sample their excellent brews. Brewmaster Doug always has several hoppy beers on rotation, as well as a good selection of rotating taps from local breweries. The food is never-miss pub style. Service is friendly and genuine. It’s a little loud when it’s packed with friends and family gatherings (nearly every night), but somehow that only adds to the friendly neighborhood ambiance.
