    Good craft brews, though not all was to my taste. Come and try all!

    Their food is pretty good, my fav is the falafel tabouli plate. But above food, they have great beer and amazing bartenders that make really good cocktails even though it's a brewery :)

    Catch the staff on Monday or Tuesday, when the bar is emptier.

    Now owned by Anheuser Busch. Go somewhere independently owned. Not some sell out owned by a conglomerate bent on owning every craft brewer to dumb down craft beer.

    Big name with few actually enjoyable beers. Try the cappuccino stout.

    One of the best brew pubs in the city, so many great beers for every taste and the food is great too!

    The steak frites are always good. Don't skimp on the sauce.

  • Liz T.

    The food used to be ok but they must have gotten a new chef. The roast beef panini was awful :/

    The beer is awesome and the food is very good too! Highly recommended.

    So...it used to be a reasonable place to visit and expect great service/a great atmosphere. As of late, it sucks. If you want a corner bar with shit ass attitude and lame ass service, come here.

    Try the beer.

    If you are a fan of craft beer, you MUST go here when in Seattle.

    The food was the worst ever!! The only thing any one like was the beer. We have not been back.

    All the beers are amazing, but definitely try The Fix. You'll be wide awake for hours.

    The poutine is always bombing here.

    The Great Pumpkin Ale is good but Mortis Sour Persimmon Ale is probably the best beer I've had in my life. So, get that.

  • Drew H.

    If you like amazingly rich food, try the Steak Frites with Bleu Cheese sauce. It's soooo good! Also: the craft brews here are fantastic!

    Good beer. Food is okay. Interesting neighborhood .

    Beer is good, food not so much. The 'Steak Frites' costs $15 and is mostly fat and is not a decent cut of meat

    Next time trying a veg meal. The brisket was mad chewy but the squash and sprouts it came with were excellent.

    Unlike the rest of the people, I personally didn't like the pumpkin beer... It was pretty strong and left a strong after taste that was unpleasant.

    Tuesday night at Elysian is Friday night atmosphere.

    The Avatar Jasmine IPA is just phenomenal. Get it on draft if available.

    Tasting flights for their specialty beers means the bartender chooses their worst beers... not a good choice.

    Just tried the 10th release of the Apocalypse this year, Blight Pumpkin Ale. Freakin' delicious @7.4% too. You gotta try it.

    TGyrl · September 23, 2012
  • Shuzhen

    The steamed clams are a tad salty but delish nonetheless! Try the porter, it's more coffee than beer!

    Shuzhen · September 21, 2012
  • Lauren

    Great specialty cocktails and cider (if you can't drink beer). And the fish tacos were to die for (and gluten-free)!

    Lauren · September 8, 2012
  • Carmen C.

    Great beer, apathetic service, loud and uncomfortable atmosphere. Happy Hour wasn't worth it.

    Carmen Clayton · July 21, 2012

    Try the Black Bean Burger
