A must when visiting West Seattle! Friendly, popular neighborhood pub in the Junction. Great mai tai at Happy Hour. Doyle took excellent care of us. Terrific comfort food - try the mac and cheese. Nice vibe. Highly recommend!!

You can not go wrong with this selection. Apart from the wonderful decor, the food selection is beyond what your mind can imagine. Get their early, or wait for a seat, it is so worth it.

Great bar and restaurant on the casual side with great food and cocktails, ambiance and service. We shared the steakbites to start with, and I had the meatloaf sandwich and we tried a few different wines. Would go back again for sure!
