First time we tried and was very good! My husband had two samplers of the beer in tap, great, creative selection. The table spit the hummus plate, which was wonderful . The sandwichs were delicious and salads nice sized. Service was great and staff very friendly! We stayed and visited for awhile and had two babies and never felt rushed... More

Our work team had lunch here last week. The service for our group of 20-ish was great. The drinks were good, as was the hummus appetizer. I had the falafel sandwich which was okay. The side salad was delicious. The sandwich toppings were good... the falafel wasn't as flavorful as I had hoped. Most of my team enjoyed their meals.... More

Decent beer and food, just don't pretend it's "craft". Especially on Capitol Hill where there are a whole bunch of places that only serve craft beer (Canterbury anyone?).

Stopped in for a quick bite and brew before heading to Husky game. I tried their Shepard Pie and it was delicious and good presentation. Also tried the shoe strings fries but the fries were just ok. Since they brew their own beer I wanted to try their specialties so I ordered a flight consisting of 5 selections. I also... More

I'm somewhat of a beer connoisseur and have enjoyed quite a few Elysian beers over the years. We were meeting up with some out of town friends and thought we'd grab a drink and dinner at their flagship 'Public House' in Capitol Hill. As soon as we walked in I was already regretting our decision. It was a particularly hot... More

I like my NW craft ales so when in Seattle thought I would give Elysian a try. I got the last of a small batch of Split Personality which was quite good. But you can find really good beer lots of places. The ambience of Elysian is dated. The seat in the booth was uncomfortable. And the food was lacking... More

A giant beer pub with OK food . Try the Space Dust IPA if your a fan of IPA's. Service was very good and it was busy so that's saying a lot. The food is upscale bar food with some specials that can be tasty but you're not here for food alone!

Great beer so must try some of their specials, although cocktails are really good and fresh as well. Food is ok, would recommend burger and fish tacos!

Never been disappointed in the food. With seating in excess of 400 people, it's built to handle crowds so the noise level can go up during busy times like lunch or during games. The service has always been excellent, whether I am with a large party or a smaller group. I have ordered their Steak Salad several times and never... More

I came here with friends and found myself freezing. Service was good (our waitress was rally nice and had some great recommendations), the food was okay (I had a cheeseburger with fries), my company enjoyed their beer. So far so good, but not the right place for me I have to admit. The design didn't catch my eye, for me... More
