Terrific, meat oriented restaurant from the same people who bring you the met grill. Beet Salad, and lamb medallions were both excellent. Kale salad was also very good. One of our other diners had the short rib and it was delicious, with a bit of asian spice. Not many veg options. Medium level noise level Good wine list.
Great atmosphere and awesome staff, Susan was extremely pleasant. The salmon was the best I had the whole trip including the pairing with tequila??? Tried them together and it was awesome! The pork chop was the beat we've ever had! Highly recommend making this a stopping point if you're in Seattle.
Large portions, so delicious! Highly recommend. My groups only concern was the asparagus wasn't too their liking, still worth going to!
I'm vegetarian and this place blew me away! There was really only a couple vegetarian options but I would absolutely go back just for the entree! Amazingly prepared! And everyone else I went with loved their stuff. Great cocktail menu. Great wine selection. Unique beers.
Nice casual place, good selection. Our bartender needed to find a personality.

Radiator has been on my list of places to go for a long time. I was excited when a friend and I finally got a chance to check this place out for happy hour. We got the tater tots w/fried egg & gravy which is a great appetizer and the $8 debris sandwich (pork, smoked cheddar, fried egg, fritos). They have a selection of whiskey that they age in their own barrels from some of the top distilleries around the country like Eagle Rare & Maker's Mark. If you're looking for some good whiskey downtown, but sure to stop by for this really popular happy hour spot.
Such a great place to get a cocktail! Cool funky decor and some good music set the stage for a good time the drinks kick like some pioneer 12s, but are very well crafted. I suggest the blister in the sun for a spicy kick on a cool Seattle night. Unfortunately I didn't get to have dinner here so I can't give a proper review on food.
Nice little whiskey bar that offered up some unique cocktails. We thought the whiskey/bourbon selection was okay (we're not far from Bourbon Country, so we're used to seeing quite a bit more) and the bartenders were friendly. Prices were a little high for the drinks and given how small the place was, it did feel a bit cramped as more people came in for happy hour. Didn't get a chance to try anything on the food menu unfortunately, but it looked good. Point of note: This place is a little tucked out of the way and can be a little difficult to find at first if you're not paying attention. Facing the main entrance to the Pike Market, go to the building on the right - there will be stairs going up to the second level and that's where you'll find Radiator.
The food and whiskey is amazing. Love this place. One of my favorites in seattle
I can not come to Seattle without coming here. The turkey drum confit is my go to, but the brisket and lamb shank are both really great too. Huge whiskey selection and always good local beers. Go.

The cocktails here are amazing: complex, balanced, drinkable, and truly craft. Everything I've had on the menu so far is stellar. This is easily in my top three bars ever and it is quite the gem in Pioneer Square. Much of the decor is from the original brothel/opium den. The music is excellent and at a level that is quiet enough to have a normal conversation. The bartender is on, even when it gets busy. Be sure to try any (all!) of their barrel aged cocktails.
Stopped in here for a sip while visiting from vancouver. Delicious drinks, super chilled out and friendly bartender, cool atmosphere.
It has a lot of potential. The decor is interesting and the bartenders are enthusiastic if not imminently skilled.
If you want different and quality visit The Visit Shoppe
Good cocktails. They have sample bitters that you can taste and then request in your drink if you find one you like

Great drinks, equally good food. I had the shrimp avocado club and my wife had the fried chicken, both were delicious. As someone from the South I was especially impressed with the collard greens. Catherine was an attentive and engaging server. We had a wonderful evening here! As well rated and popular as this place seems to be, it deserves it.
I haven't been here in too long! Tonight we conspicuously moved tables, which garnered us a double set of servers- both were quintessential professionals, and made the unexpected transition for them, smooth for us. Mike, the owner, was behind the bar tonight. He's a great bartender, bar owner, and chef. Its been at least a year since I saw him tending bar, but he could have been tending 5 days a week- I'm the one at fault for not coming in more often. If I lived across the street from this place, I'd be a fat alcoholic... luckily, I live too far away for that, and sadly, I live too far away for that... Anyway, 5 star food, 5 star service, and once again my favorite people and I spent the best times together, drank the best drinks together, and ate the best foods together! Some Random Bar has become a local hot spot that I excitedly investigated two weeks before they opened, and now enjoy reminiscing in with my closest friends...
Decided to go here when we showed up to a closed No Anchor due to an emergency pipe repair that shut down the entire block and tore up the street. Friendly server, good drinks nice beer selection, game on TVs. One star taken away because they didn't have the beer I wanted that was up on the board and then didn't have the cocktail I wanted that was on the menu. Seems like a great local hang out.
Found this little gem by simply using Google. We just wanted a bite to eat and some drinks after taking in the sights in Seattle one night. From the Space Needle area it's about a 15-20 walk, but well worth it! Crab nachos were amazing as was the yummy, flaky, buttery garlic pull apart!! If you want a 'random' place to grab some great drinks and eats, this is the place!
Great spot in terms of food, drinks and flair! Small seating option outside in special style. Don't miss out going there on Sundays: You flip a coin for each beer you order, be lucky and pay only one dollar!

Great beer selection. Very clean bathrooms. The establishment is below the ground so naturally it's very cool temperature wise. It's great for quick company outings and has plenty of fun little games in addition to the miniature golf course. The staff is always polite and helpful. I can't say I've had a bad experience here!
I've heard of Flatstick before but I'm not typically into mini golf. I finally went for a company outing and it was so much fun! It was way better than I thought it would be. For being a teeny tiny course it was entertaining and had a great atmosphere. The place was clean, had good music, plenty of seating, and there's even corn hole and board games etc. The bartenders were fun and the food was so tasty. We went on a day (Tuesday) where they had trivia so that's cool to know for future outings! I'd recommend getting there early- it was 5 pm and empty but by 6pm there were a lot more people!
Organized a birthday party with them - the support was seamless from the get go. Putt putt was so fun and everyone had a fantastic time! We could bring our own food, and had pizza delivered! Awesome staff, selection of cider, and totally wonderful support. Thanks guys :)
This is a fun spot. I've been twice, and the experiences were very different. Much more laid back without a DJ, mid-week. A bit crazier post-Sounders match on a Saturday. Tip: RSVP'ing for a "tee time" took less than a minute through the site.
This place was awesome. So many fun options for game play, even while you're waiting to hit the 9 hole mini putt course. Had such a fun time here. The beer options were great as well. Would definitely revisit often if I lived in Washington.
