A solid restaurant/brewpub in the Fremont area. Obviously features a maritime theme. Plenty of TVs showing sports. The beers that I happened to sample were pretty good (the imperial pale ale and nightwatch dark amber), though the overall menu is not the most exciting. Mostly standard pub fare - sandwiches and some seafood. Overall a solid spot, decent to good beer, but nothing too crazy.

Fairly generic place with a maritime theme. Samplers are generous, but the beer was mediocre. Food is standard pub food but with an interesting emphasismon seafood. Tons of parking in front.

(Visited 03/2013 on the Seattle Road Dogs Tour): The Jolly Roger Taproom is located near Salmon Bay in the Fremont area of west Seattle. There is a parking lot in front of the building.

The interior is relatively small and reflects the Maritime theme. Red walls with a small bar in the center.

The beer selection consists of around 10 house beers, and there is a sampler of 5 beers. On my visit this included a Weizenbock, Pils, Red Alt and Nightwatch Dark Amber. The beers are all decent for the most part.

Service on our tour groupís evening visit was good. The server was attentive and had a good knowledge of their beers.

I did not have any food on my visit.

Overall this is a pretty good brewpub to visit in the Seattle area.

I enjoyed both their Imperial IPA and the Portage Bay Pilsener, both of which were suitably hoppy! Some friendly locals and efficient staff. I could easily have stayed here for more but had to press on with my long pub crawl.

Very laid back; service is there. Food and beer are fine. Location is unfortunate. I like the atmosphere .

I had a typical sampler tray outside and found their brews solid. Cool little joint. The location did change from the previous Leary Way location to 11th and Ballard.

2010-07. Visited at the end of a long sunny Saturday afternoon last July, we stopped in for a couple of their own brews on tap. Beer selection is good with a lot of their own available, some on nitro; the two we tried were pretty solid though I quite liked the Black Porter on nitro. Staff was friendly; we did not try any food. The place is quite restauranty with fun, loud music, a well-thought out decor and layout, and a huge treasure painted on the entire floor space; it seemed to smell of lobster. Would return if nearby again.

Solid little brewpub located in a slightly industrial block near the Ballard/Fremont border. Highlights from the sampler were the dry-hopped Islander, the DIPA and the Christmas Ale. The food is adequately hearty to absorb all the beer.

This place is decent. My brother and I visited on a Wednesday night, so I donít feel that that is a fair way to judge just how busy a place can really get. We had no problem finding A.) Parking, and B.) a seat inside. As others have mentioned, it seems as though someone from the sky just took a shit, and wherever the turd randomly landed, thatís where the bar would be. Itís in what some call "Fremont", but I beg to differ. Anyways, this place smells like fish, big time! I didnít mind that, but just be aware to draw in a big plume of fish aroma when you walk in, more so than other fish restaurants. Itís probably due to the overall size of this place, which isnít substantial. Lots of wood. The bar space is decent. The service is fairly good. The drink prices are fucking awesome. The beers we had were pretty good as well. Overall, very solid. There are some drawbacks, but thatís everywhere. Selection: just Maritime stuff, as far as beer is concerned.

The Taproom has a sizable bar and plenty of tables squeezed into a small space and a "deck area" for nicer weather; most maritime brews available and usually a cask as well; cool vibe in this place with mix of more blue collar folks compared to newer places in the area; love the little burgers and other eclectic food items; heard they were moving to a new one?
