A sibling of the 74th Street and Columbia City Ale Houses, you'll find a much more interesting menu here than typically associated with "pub fare." The chicken sandwich, always a staple, was given the "Best of Seattle" award by one of our local publications, and I can see how it earned high praise. Other fixtures include amazing fish tacos and Jambalaya that's definitely spicy enough to cure what ales 'ya...I know, pardon the pun. Check the chalkboard to see what catch of the day is jammed into those monster fish tacos.
Beer selection is generous with a few regular showings, yet plenty of rotating taps to keep the menu fresh.
Service has been somewhat inconsistent at times, but on balance is pretty good and quite knowledgeable when looking for a beverage recommendation.
Lastly, watch out for weekend nights or during Sonics/M's games when it can get a little crowded.
