Stopped by for dinner with friends before catching a UW play. Not busy at all, so we had no trouble making show time. Our server was very personal and efficient. Everyone liked their meals, especially the Shepard's pie. Beer was very good too. No complaints.

Cool little brewery near the college district of Seattle. We had a good time taking a break from exploring to have some drinks here. It looked like everything on tap was made in-house, so that's always a cool experience. We didn't have any food, but...More
