This Ballard institution has been around since 1904, before Ballard was incorporated into Seattle. The immediate neighborhood has gone upscale in the past 10 years, with commensurately higher priced restaurants and pubs.

We were in the area for a girls weekend and Hattie's came recommended. If you're into local dives with great food and atmosphere, you have to stop in! Service was great, lots of smiles and they obviously have a very regular clientele. Great drink menu and the perfect late night food menu! My chicken fried chicken with garlic mashed potatoes...

We stopped here for dinner prior to going to the Tractor Tavern. The food and drinks were quite good. It was nice to enjoy a hot buttered rum and a nice hot meal on a gold night. The service was impeccable.

We ate at Hattie's Hat our first night in Seattle and it was delicious. I got the fried chicken sandwich and it was fantastic. My friend had the best tater tots of her life. To make things even better our waiter (Momo) was super friendly and fun. I would definitely go here the next time I visit.

Stumbled upon this eclectic place for brunch on a recent day in Ballard and will return on our next visit. We were quickly seated in the front section in a well worn booth overlooking a wonderful old carved bar. The prompt, friendly service was complemented by quickly delivered delicious food. The " Swedes" Swedish pancakes were delicious and my husband... More
