Went here before a mariners game, like everyone else. Cool ambiance, long bar, open floorplan, modern, lots of TVs. Service was OK, you may have to flag the bartender down. Selection was very good for the brewery, they seemed to have most of their seasonals on tap and they were mostly fresh and tasted awesome. They had all their normal brews, too. Value during happy hour is exceptional, for appetizers too. My wife may have gotten sick off the mussels. Overall a very good spot for pre/post game or otherwise. Recommended.
Nice big place right up from the ball park and football/soccer field. Huge bar with lots of seating, everything was nice and fairly clean. Service was excellent at the bar but it was a Tuesday afternoon and not that busy. Very nice selection of Elysian beers, with some draft only and cask selections. Food was really good, taco Tuesdayís is a winner. Prices seemed good considering the area. This is a great place, way better than I had expected.
Visited for lunch in Nov í12 prior to catching the plane home from SEATAC.
Largeish single roomed venue with the bar area breaking the room up into 2 parts.
The place was pretty dead, no more than maybe 20 other folks there.
I had a couple of sampler trays on my visit. Around half the beers were standard Elysian offerings, the other half less seen examples.
We ate here and the food was really good, however our server showed up with our main courses literally 2 minutes after putting our starters in front of us !!!
Stooopid and no need - the place wasnít even busy or anything so we watched our burgers and fries cool in front of us !
That aside the food was really good here.
Having visited the other Elysian establishment on a more recent visit this place is a much classier joint though at the business end the beer selection is pretty similar. 15 minutes walk from Pike.
I made the mistake of going here about an hour before a Mariners game. There were no seats at the bar, and the staff was overwhelmed. I promptly left, and re-visted after the baseball game (I left in the 8th inning), and there were literally 5 people here. They have about 15 beers on tap with their regulars, and a few special beers. One of those was full of diacetyl, and clearly not ready to be put on tap. I ordered the cured meat platter, which was pretty darn tasty. All in all, a decent place, and probably worth visiting - just not before a Mariners/Seahawks/Sounders game.
Big warehouse space. Meant to hold the ball game and business lunch rushes. Service was fine when we stopped here, but it was damn slow, Unfortunate timing on our part as at least half the lines we down getting ready for the pumpkin beer line up. I had the esb and ipa. Food was good, usual pub grub salads, sandwhiches, burgers. Prices were fine for the metro area, tad high in the scheme of things. Wouldnít go here during game time, but fine place to go if your hanging out in the area.
I was here after a Mariners game on a lovely Summer Thursday night and it was virtually empty. I know the Mariners suck, but whatís that about? And then, their taps were decimated. No stout, no porter... Is this place reliable? Our bartender was nice but awkward--far too enthusiastic. The price on samples is a bit steep. Not a great brewpub experience, Iíd go to the other location if you must.

This place was really nice and they make great beer.This Place is more of a bar than a brewery.Bartenders donít know much about beer.If your in Seattle ,Elysianís brew is a must to try out while your out there even if you donít come here..I liked the beer so i canít really hate on this place.
Go when there arenít games or events. Iíve never had an issue with the waitstaff--theyíre knowledgeable about their beers, as they should be, and score points by allowing soccer to stay on the screen rather than switch to football. Happy hour food is good value but mediocre; regular menu is fairly tasty but higher priced. Elysianís special brews are often quite good.
