    The quintessential Seattle hipster bar complete with taxodermy and a great outdoor patio. Order a tall boy of Rainier to fit in and wear your best flannel.

    Pre gaming? Come here and grab a cheap beer with a fun crowd. Patio is dope, weather permitting. There's also a little bit of history here (see every other review).

    They have the best Sunday brunch! I always order their Rio Grande omelet & substitute mushrooms with onions. Also, if you like Bloodies, their Buffalo Mary is the way to go.

    Great patio. Awesome atmosphere. Good drinks. Come see it before they tear it down and replace it with a condo building.

    Classic cap hill hang out. Great out door area in the back with a huge paint by number wall.

    One of my favorite spots, morning, noon or night. I once ordered breakfast without the hash browns and they offered me extra bacon instead (n/c).

    Myeah, this place is one of the chillest bars on the hill, yet it maintains a large crowd of people. Enjoy the outdoor patio in the dead of winter or in the heat of summer. Just don't smoke out there

    Great outdoor patio for those Seattle summer nights and Big Buck Hunter HD to settle those bets between friends and strangers alike.

    The back patio is a must!! Service can be slow, but is always nice and welcoming. Good prices too. Hands down my fav bar and my fav breakfast place on the hill.

    This legendary, taxidermy-filled watering hole bills itself as the "official tavern of the Northwest," and that's no stretch. Kurt Cobain loved the place and so will you. Read more

    Hot toddies are awful, but you can't go wrong with the buffalo Mary and the Alamo scramble! Then play some pool! They're also getting better filling your coffee!

    The chicken strips are great; get the BBQ sauce instead of ranch for added awesomeness.

    This place can get crazy on the weekend, and some of the mixed drinks can be done up very sugary.
