    The outdoor patio is great, but if you prefer to be inside, there’s a huge skylight over the bar that fills the dining room with sunlight. There are plenty of great beers on tap.- © 2013 BuzzFeed, Inc

    Great 2 pretzels and all the sauces! Good rotating beer selection from the northwest and beyond. Open, family-style seating with bar games and TVs.

    Had a smoked ham sandwich special with pickles and BBQ - one of the best sandwiches I've had in a long time. Good beer menu, fries and curds were also good (almost WI quality curds😊)

    I go here for lunch and just get the pretzel. They come out pretty fast, so it's convenient to just stop here quickly. Most of the other items on the menu take much longer, so plan more time.

    Sat by the dart boards in the back corner. Live listening to the revelry and cheers surrounding the shuffleboards. Burger was delish and get the Silver City Rootbeer if you are DD!! Yummy!

    Yeehaw! Seattle has a new Texas-style bar in "Allentown" or South Lake Union corridor. Saloon-themed bar beckons near new tech offices. Gluten-free options limited to salads, slaw and Redbridge beer. Read more

    My favorite place for drinks in South Lake Union. Plenty of free parking, reasonably priced drinks for premium micros, and they got darts!

    Although you definitely get your money's worth with extras on the burgers, look out-- whether the black bean or beef patty, they fall apart in your hands.

    Gets really packed on Friday afternoon with happy hour-ers. If at capacity, they will not let people in unless more people leave. Avoid busy times and enjoy amazing burgers!

    The ham and cheese on pretzel bread is amazing! Fries are $3.50 extra and they don't offer free refills on soft drinks!

    Pretzel with peanut butter & bacon is always the right answer! Awesome beer selection too-when in doubt go with the bravehorse ale!

    Keep it simple with Beer & Fresh pretzels ... If you order a burger, remember to add the trimmings - they are not included by default :)

    The burgers are king don't forget to sprinkle you're fries with unicorn garlic. And the service is impeccable. Coming back for sure.

    The house-cured smoked ham is the best pork sandwich I've had in a long time. The pretzel bun really makes it.

    Weeknights after the work shift this place is slammed with Amazoners. It's surprisingly not packed on my weekends. Also, put the low-carb diet on hold for a night and have a pretzel already.

    Pretzels are great, but be prepared to share a table with people. Sat by two girls that said "like" waaaayyyy too much.

    Order the burger straight up and put some cheese on it. Mine came with too much lettuce, in a tight thick chunk, and it caused the onions to spill out an I could not enjoy them with the burger.

    The deep fried cheese curds are pretty darn close to those you find in Wisconsin. Authentic batter-fried and all!

    Favorite Tom Douglas restaurant outside of Lola's patio in the summertime. The burgers are perhaps the second-best in Seattle.

    If you plan on staying a while or watching a game get the hams in a can. Save yourself a paycheck.

    If you're international, they INSIST on a passport. Anyone else gets carded (even those with grey professor hair). Good otherwise.
