I had lunch here several times while in Seattle. It is a nice change from the very modern buildings all around. The menu is fairly standard cafe/pub type food. Good and copious. The ambiance is laid back and service is friendly.

My husband and I came here for lunch and the grilled cheese was delicious as was the salad. Perfect Bellini and my husband had the steak sandwich on special which was also delicious. Cozy place with great staff!

Nice little neighborhood bar. Friendly staff and a very good kitchen. Friday live music is at least decent, and sometimes excellent. Relaxed vibe makes this an easy place to hang.

Great brunch spot. Made me feel a little like I was back in New Orleans with the blues music and decor. Love it.
