Just popped in for drinks. Seated quickly (5mins max) in a booth and drinks presented very quickly and we didn't have to wait for further rounds. Nice bar with friendly staff.

Elliot Bay is a classic NW restaurant and pub. Our lunches this time were good but not great and the service was a bit slow. Two of us ordered manilla clams--one serving came with an open mud clam!

My sister, niece and I went for lunch, Both my sister and I had the fish and chips. It came with 3 huge pieces of cod lightly beer battered. Plenty of fries and coleslaw. Fish and chips are usually my choice when eating out. This fish was probably some of the best I've eaten. I grew up in West Seattle... More

We ate here this evening (09/22) upstairs. Had to wait 15min for our table: it was worth waiting! We started with the nachos and both had the burger. Very good food. Also tried several beers here. The waiter has a passion for his job; he came with three very nice tasteful beers to try! Try Elliotts dry hopped; very hoppy... More

I've eaten here three times in the past month or two. The menu has a good variety and nearly everything is going to be a little "different" than you've had. Many items pair flavors in ways I have not seen before. I also like that that make their own dressing. I love their bleu cheese and I think their green... More

Elliott Bay Brewery & Pub in Seattle: Had a great lunch, with great food, in a great location. Service was good, although our server got switched out for some reason and we were never told why, another employee just started helping us.

My husband and I have been frequenting the West Seattle Elliott Bay Brewery for the past 9 or so years and it's unusual when we don't go there for dinner and drinks to cap off the end of a work week. This place has a definite 'Cheers' vibe- the wait staff is so welcoming and always say hello even if... More

I had Luna Fish and Chips (13.25) and Chocolate Pecan Pie (5.95) for lunch today. The serving was huge; they provided 3 pieces of fish and it was lightly battered; could still taste the freshness of the fish. The fries they came with it was plenty. The pecan pie was good too! It came with 3 scoops of ice cream;... More

The food is always good, the staff is wonderful and the restaurant is cozy and comfortable. I eat here often and always enjoy myself. Grass-fed organic beef burgers, too!
