Stopped in with no idea of what to expect. Place was busy so we grabbed a table and I ran to the bar to submit our drink orders, tactically snagging a couple menus at the same time. I forgot to photograph the menu, so i dont remember what we ate, but it was really good. We would totally hang out there if we were local. The only negative, and it wasn't us, but the folks at the table next to us took forever to get served. We felt kind of bad for them, but sitting and waiting on service in a busy bar is not how one plays the game.
Our go to spot for after work beers. Food is really good and the menu has lots of options. Delicious burgers and specials every day. The fries are amazing. Incredibly quick and friendly bartenders in an all around good bar atmosphere. They give our dog the best attention, yummy treats and water. Live music sometimes by some really good local talent. Pool table, lots of space, good seating. Nice little outdoor seats right on 1st are the best to people watch. Next door to the Showbox which always filters in a diverse crowd when there is a show.
If your ever in Seattle you must stop in The Blarney Stone Pub it's AWESOME friendly people nice atmosphere and the right place to be for any game. Big screen TV's all over and AWESOME FOOD it makes my mouth water just thinking of how good everything tastes ????.
Was there on St Patrick's Day, they had an Irish band and a lot of people. Beer was by the glass, no pitchers, but I wasn't particularly surprised by that since it was the holiday of drinking beer and they are a business. Overall I had fun while I was there, the bathrooms were down a long hallway and felt like you were going through a maze, but there was no line even though it was super busy in the bar.
I am so happy I found a place right next to Pike's Place without a snobby interior and high prices to match. Servers were awesome, prices are insanely low for this area, the food was very, very solid. Happy hour food specials are 6 or 7 bucks. I love this spot. Look for Ben, he has long hair. He is a fantastic bartender and server.
