    Noisy techno music not really fitting the bar atmosphere. OK service. Great burger. $55 for 2 entrees, 1 drink, and a tip. Bit expensive.

    Try the Lox Sammy - closed face, on an English muffin as opposed to open faced bagel. And a good amount of Lox! #alldatlox

    Get a Paper Planes + Cheese Curds. One of my favorite cocktails in all of Seattle! This is a great spot to enjoy a cocktail and appetizer before going out or to treat yourself to a nightcap!

    been here a few times. Hosting a party in the back room is fantastic! I recently went for brunch and found the service very grumpy, but I think it's also a hard shift. Probably won't go back.

    Great food and drinks. The tomato bisque is rich and spicy. Space can be loud at times.

    The maple chicken n waffles with apple coleslaw sliders was pretty good. The Ramos Gin Fizz was a bit lacking though.

    Stopped in for a late night drink & the server was short with us and not interested in serving us...so we left. I have a bad tastes in my mouth for The Gerald. Don't think I'll be back anytime soon.

    Jeshua's the man. Burger is solid as are all the drinks. Ask for the off menu "Hauschka Sour" named after Seahawks kicker Steven Hauschka.

    Ask the hipster-y bartender for a custom concoction. You'll probably get something with a foamy egg white on top.

    Their Bloody Mary tastes like roasted tomatoes. Delicious.

    The shuffleboard in the back is one of the shortest tables ever. It even has bumpers. Lay off the Sun-Glo, there is plenty o' grain on that piece.

    Drapper Point is perfectly balanced cocktail. Sit at the Bar.

    Split a lot of small plates amongst friends - the truffle fries, pigs in a blanket, and devils on horseback shouldn't be missed.

    The menu is diverse and tight. BLT with fried egg. Maple waffle chicken slider sandwich. Top 5 bar in Seattle. So I'm told.

    Really great service. The happy hour was nicely priced and the food was phenomenal. We had the Mac n cheese, Swedish meatballs and the specialty fries. Go here!
