    A mean made-to-order mac & cheese. Chock-full of five different cheeses, this mac elevates elbow pasta with the option to add bacon, ham, jalapenos or chicken breast to the dish. Read more

    Belltown's oldest bar and Seattle's best jukebox. Hearty and chceap food served 24/7. Legendary men's room periscope with a clear view of the Space Needle.

    Don't judge this book by its cover - the Halibut and Chips was excellent, some of the best I've had in awhile. Only knock is that I felt the portion could have been bigger.

    Wow, the open-faced turkey sandwich was everything I wanted & more! Thanksgiving leftovers without the hassle. Sit outside for a great view of the Space Needle while you chow down!

    Get the one pound order of tater tots + ranch dressing and share it with a few friends. The tots are the best I've had in Seattle and the dressing is more creamy then ranchy. perfect combination!

    Come for the early happy hour – if you can get away with it. The $3 half eggs Bennie is a great deal. As are the $5 mimosas!

    Completing the look of this dive bar are duct-taped furniture, a jerry-rigged periscope in the men’s room, and an all-day-n-night breakfast menu to complement the 40-ouncers of Olde English. Read more
