Pork was cold and lacked seasoning. Fried chicken in chicken and waffles burnt. Potato soup was delicious. This place lost the good menu and charm we had with the pre-Covid Jules Mae's. No more Dragon Wings and good service. They had one cook and one...waitress/bartender for a packed bar. Meal was not worth the $50 bill for 2. They seem to be depending on the reputation of the previous management and the menu we all loved. Won't be going back until they start serving food that is of the quality we expect from Jules Maes and make sure they have enough staff to make sure food doesn't freeze on the counter waiting to be served.More

Cozy, casual atmosphere and comfort food that never goes out of style. We come here often and always leave satisfied. Favorites are the lamb burger, Shepard's pie (with Brussies!), and crispy, mouth-watering fish and chips. Did I mention the TOTS? Plus draft beer and cider...too!More

My wife & I met a colleague at Jules Maes - reputedly "the oldest bar in Seattle" - for a late weekday lunch. It can be a challenge to access from north or southbound I-5, but the destination is worth the search. There's a parking...lot out back, with additional parking along the south side street & on Airport Way South out front. This late 1800's saloon is very popular with social groups & coworkers from area businesses for lunch & happy hour gatherings, so it can get pretty loud with the high ceilings & large walls when a big group is seated. But the service is friendly & efficient, the menu offers good variety, and the food is well prepared. Our party of three enjoyed our fried cod sandwich & prime rib dip & Thai noodles dish, and the dark interior made for a relaxing meal (at least until a rowdy late afternoon crowd arrived). We would recommend Jules Maes for small or large parties, with food & drink options able to satisfy a wide variety of tastes.More

.. and he was right.... and he’s missing out (having admitted he’s never actually been there, but sends his guests there ALL THE TIME! So first: the actual place looks pretty authentic. It looks like there’s a lot of the original furnishing and fixtures -...all in great shape. It’s neighbourhood looks like it is full of trendy brew pubs and restaurants. We were able to walk the 4 blocks from our hotel. The waiter we had was great - he brought samples of both draft beers and ciders to help us choose. The menu is excellent and quite creative. Having lots of different choices and everting our group of 4 had was outstanding. The Shepherds Pie was wonderful. The Thai Noodle Salad with chicken blew me away. The Fish Taco’s were an appetizer but were filling enough for dinner. And the Tomato Basil soup was also perfect. Prices were very reasonable. If there is a negative, and I have to search hard to find one - its that there is no dessert menu. But... the upside is that there is a happy hour every day!! Don’t miss out on this great little spot.More

The burgers here are amazing. We had the Whiskey & Falafel burgers. Both were fantastic. When choosing a side I recomend the tots over the fries. Great service and lovely welcome.

We researched the place before going and decided we could walk from our hotel, and it was worth trying. Well after settling on a beer I had cannonball porter and my husband had a Chuckanut red, and both we delicious. We ordered the Jambalaya between...us and it was way more than enough. We have had it in. New Orleans and man this was better, lots of bite but very well done, certainly recommended it.More

Don't let the 100+ year old building stop you from entering. This place has character. It's old, historic, and charming. The lighting is awful very dark; it makes it hard to see the old safes, cash register, decor and more. Don't just stay up front,...head to the back. In the back you'll find a pool table /.75 a game, a ping pong table / free and a few pinball machines / .25 per game. We had so much fun. Now for the food review, delicious! Only downfall, not enough fish. You get two pieces with your order of fish and chips, three would better. It's amazing. I liked my side salad because it wasn't made with iceberg lettuce. Our server went out of her way for us. Apparently, when you sit in the game room, you are responsible for getting your own drinks and placing your food order. When I went up to bar to get our drinks the gal working asked how many? I said four. So she walked back with me and took our beverage and food order. She even kept checking on us throughout our evening. Now that's service.More

We arrived happy. Left 5 minutes later disgusted and disappointed. Senior citizens that were asked for ID! My husband had his ID but because I abstain from liquor consumption, I don’t often carry my ID with me. So we had to leave. We were visiting...from Ontario, Canada and this restaurant was one of our destinations because of its history. Needless to say, we will never come back. The waitress was extremely rude, inconsiderate, impatient, and should not be in the service industry. We enjoyed a delicious Mexican meal a few doors down the street. We were not asked for ID, we were welcomed with smiles, kindness, and excellent service. And....that’s how it should be!More
