Love coming here for drinks and some arcade games!! They have several pinball machines, big buck, pac man and some others. I haven't tried the food here since I usually eat before and come here last.

What a gem in the heart of Ballard! A quirky, vintage Seattle outpost that has a modest but excellent array of pinball machines and arcade games, perfectly framed by a few booths and a comfortable bar. Our bartender Farrah (SP?) was great in recommending food and bevs, checking in, keeping an eye on our belongings and also just pleasant to chat with in passing. The food menu is stacked and of a higher quality than most dive bars. Pricing across both food and beverage is by far...read full review

Neighborhood dive bar with a "Cheers" vibe and a Seattle hominess. Always seems to be busy and they are open until 2am so it's a popular industry hangout. The arcade games in the back are definitely worth checking out; street fighter, buck hunter and 4 player Pac-Man to name a few. Would recommend this spot for a homie hangout. Cheers!
