As everyone has stated, this place is located in the bottom area of the Pike Place market. The restaurant and bars are comprised of several levels, and a bunch of nooks and crannies. I stopped in midday on a rainy January Tuesday. The service I had what I believe is the main bar was attentive and effiicient. There is a lot to look at on the walls, interesting Brewiana and bric a brac. bric a brac everywhere. Place feels very warm and established. If you are near the place certainly worth hitting up. I did not look closely in the coolers, but they appeared to have a decent take out beer selection.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
The food was quite nice and well priced. I have been a few times. Both the burgers and the pulled pork sandwiches are enjoyable. Many of the Pikes Beers taste even better on tap so quite enjoyable. Service usually good, server was not knowledgeable about the dessert special of Chocolate/Beer pairing, which was a shame because I was looking forward to a little education with that dessert, like why a particular beer was paired with a particular style of chocolate in the truffles.
I really enjoyed this place. My first stop on this one day stop over in Seattle. Situated in the mall adjacent to the Pike Place Market, on the lower level, the decor is a typical brewpub setting. Service at the bar was friendly. Beers were outstanding. The sampler is a bit expansive (6 3 on for 8.95$) but you can negotiate with the barman to get the brands you want. A must stop, since you can visit the Market at the same time.
Big restaurant brew pub conveniently connected to Pike Place Market, which assures a consistent crowd; has a main restaurant area, several levels & bars and a "game" room w/ pool tables, big screen tv, etc; walls are covered w/ lots of interesting Seattle history and memorabilia; food is good and reasonably priced for the area; trends a little more touristy than local; lots of bottles and Pike gear available for sale
A really fascinating brewpub concept within a mall environment. The brewery is stacked in 3 visible layers and the dinning area and kitchen surrounds it. Food was excellent and the beer was good. The wait staff seemed a little board - if not slightly rude. I’d recommend this place to those in the area.
Been here a couple of times now, but recently was the first since I have actually moved here. Always busy but not to the point where you don’t get help. Food is good. A little pricey but to be expected. Beer was good, not great, but good. Had the cask IPA which was nice. Also had the double ipa on and I really enjoyed that. Family enjoyed it too.
Made it here on a recent trip to Seattle. This is a really nice larger brewpub. Several rooms, a few TVs around, but nothing intrusive. Beer selection was pretty typical brewpub fare, but all of the beers were above average. One nice cask pull selection and an interesting rotating tap of some more extreme stuff. Had the fish and chips which were very nice, and my wife had some fantastic west coast crab cakes. Service was fine, lots of merch to look at. Really nice place and worth a stop if you’re in Seattle.
I loved this place in the cellar of Pike’s Market. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. The beers are good to great and the food was above average. A more or less chaotic combination of rooms with lots of beer stuff on the walls. The sell a lot of Pike-wear like t-shirts, glasses, caps, etc..
