    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

    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

    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.

    I had the pretzel with the peanut butter and bacon dip. This was a disappointment. Salty, bland, overrated and definitely over priced. Must I add it looked very unappetizing too. Save your money.

    1st time here -Sun early eve - lively crowd. Fried Chicken dinner underwhelmed. Gravy on mashed taters = heavy roll = meh, chicken really salty (pickle batter) -crowd = fun. (1 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    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.

    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!

    The Friday night crowd reminded me of a college bar and the quality of the food matched that. The menu has no focus. Oyster sandwich was underdone and BBQ platter was disappointing. Not recommended.

    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!

    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.

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

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

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

    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.

    Apparently this place no longer gives stamps for Wabl members so if you are coming for that.....don't bother. Our guy server was also a real douche bag.

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

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

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

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

    Try the seared albacore tuna burger with some avocado on it. Also, if you didn't know: 24 taps and shuffleboard!

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

    Try the Brick Over Pretzel, it's recommended by the Seattle Times, Seattle Weekly and Seattle Magazine. Can't go wrong! Read more

    Just not a place for food... food is very average... dessert is good though you can get the coconut cream pie from Dhalia Lounge/bakery.

    I had their quinoa scramble. Don't get it if you're not going to have the bacon. It needs to have the bacon

    Vegetarian? Get the black bean & green chile burger!! Not vegetarian? Get the black bean & green chile burger!!

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

    Be cautious if you get a "scoop" of ice cream with your $2.50 cookie, said scoop will add an additional $3.00.

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

    Sour cream and onion dip rocks my world but not so much the natural peanut butter, too dry and flavorless.
    Faith Yi · November 14, 2011

    An excellent burger. Great for lunch, and not too much food. Very tidy, very tasty.
    Chris Camargo · July 13, 2015

    Definitely try a pretzel with your beer - sour cream and onion dipping sauce is super delicious!

    Good beer selection, tasty pretzels. Slightly overpriced. Come back for the weekend brunch.

    The bacon, onion and cheddar breakfast scramble on the kegs and eggs menu is delicious.

    Get the corn dogs! The fries are also absolutely fantastic (and the orders are huge)!
    Amanda Panosh · October 27, 2014
  • David N.'s favorite spot in Seattle for a burger. Beef chunk, applewood smoked bacon all on a brioche bun.

    The spiced rubbed grilled turkey burger is awesome, the spicy Dijon mustard is!

    Delicious ham and cheese and great beer selection. It's basically an extension of the amazon offices

    Ask for your burger on one of their made in house pretzel buns. Delicious!

    Food is good but beers are overpriced. Unless you specify, they'll bring you a 20oz pour for$9+.

    Get the steamed clams & pretzel. Ah-mazing. And the corn on the cob was delish!
