Come here on thursdays during happy hour, lanes are cheap and so are the drinks and food! fun place to come drink and bowl or play pool

.

We used to have a good time here and enjoyed the bowling/pool games and food until tonight. We arrived around 12:30am and got a pool table and a round of drinks. The server was great and the atmosphere was like any other place on a Saturday night. Around 1am last call was announced and we ordered another round and a couple appetizers. The Garage is open until two am or so we thought. About 15 minutes later, after we had just gotten our drinks and were setting up for another game, the security guard came over yelling at us, asking us if we were deaf or stupid that we didn't hear last call was announced. Apparently to him that meant no more pool games either, though that was not said over the loud speaker. I asked why we couldn't play any more pool since it was 45 min. before closing. He asked me if I could understand English. It would be fine to explain if they were closing early, but to be rude was uncalled for. I went to pay and told the guy at the desk about the guard yelling at us, then the security guard came over and got in my face asking why I was lying about him being rude. It was one of the worst experiences with bad customer service I have ever had. Then I went back to my friends to finish my beer when the security guard came over to tell me that they were taking drinks away from people. What?! Why would you call last call and 15 min. later take away people's drinks. This place runs on truly bizarre principles. I went to ask the waitress who said she was sorry and that sometimes the owners like to close early. The manager then came over and yelled at me for being argumentative. I was totally appalled at the behavior and communication with the Garage's management. I also don't expect to have to pay for food and drinks that were hardly touched because a place decides to close early without warning. If you're going to close early and if you're going to end activities before closing, let your customers know and in a way that is respectful. Do NOT go there!! There are many finer places with better customer service!

Pros: The only place around to bowl

Cons: Aggressive staff

The garage has been a favorite for me and a lot of friends for many years. I believe that the owners are the old bartenders that use to serve us in the 90's. Still, it is a very fun place to hang out have cocktails, bowl or play pool. Good environment for mid to large sized groups for a night out.

This could be a great place, but they are dishonest. The guy who works the bowling counter on Saturday night is a liar. When I arrived at 6:30 p.m., I specifically asked him about the lane rates. He said, "It's $10 an hour, as long as you want." Of course, when I paid my bill at 7:45 he charged me at the outrageous $25 an hour rate beginning at 7:00 p.m. When I asked him about it, he smiled and said, "Read the sign." Integrity is a must, even in a pool hall.

The Garage not only is the best bowling alley/pool hall, it delivers everything you wouldn't expect in terms of food/service/atmosphere. We came here for a large party and thought maybe we should eat somewhere first. (My experience has been don't eat at bowling alleys.) However to my surprise, the food was to die for (the pizza was my favorite!) The drinks were made perfectly and the quick service definitely helped my bowling average! I like that I still feel like I am at the hottest spot on a weekend night.

Thank you Garage!

Pros: Chic atmosphere, great lanes, excellent service!

Cons: Did you not read my comments?? Nothing negative about this place!

I arrange events for my company, and it has never been as easy, or as much of a success as it was with the Garage. I had a group of about 250 people, not an easy number of guests to take care of, but the Garage staff handled us with flying colors. We were given the Star Light Lounge (the Garage's newest addition) as our own private party hall. 6 private bowling lanes, pool tables, and a private bar. Each staff member working our function was friendly and acommadating, making a seemingly daunting task of organizing a 250 person function, easy. The food was great, the drinks were strong and never left our hands, and the Garage delivered on everything they promised. They definititely gained themselves 250 more loyal customers.

Thank you, Garage!!

I LOVE the new space at the bowling alley, GARAGE, on Capitol Hill! It really is a beautiful space with many curious and interesting art pieces to look at. I've attended many events there over the years and think it just continues to get better and better! When exploring which space would be best for our group there where so many options available. The person I spoke to on the phone was very thorough and knowledgeable about which areas he thought would best suit us. At the private birthday party we had, there seemed to just be endless amounts of food! And delicious to boot! I loved the thin crust pizzas and crisp veggies to dip in the garlic hummus! The bartender was so sweet and patient with me when I couldn't make up my mind about what to drink...She suggested a grapefruit press and it was PERFECT!! Refreshing...sweet and tart at the same time! We had a great experience there! They were all very accomodating and professional and we had a BLAST because of it!! I highly recommend this venue for your party or just hanging out w/ a group of friends!

Pros: parking garage right next to it!

Cons: little chilly inside, bring a sweater until you start bowling!

Went to play a little pool and have a couple beers. Paid for drinks as we went, didn't want a tab, but they keep ID for pool table rental. Went to pay pool table rental and they handed us a bill for almost $100 with food and drinks that we never ordered or consumed. We objected and said we weren't paying for anything that we didn't order and then the manager reached out and snatched money right out of my husband's hand. Of course, he told her to give back his money and she said F--- Off!

Never been treated so shabbily anywhere. These people are thieves, literally stealing money right out of our hands, for all we know they probably padded our bill with their friends orders. Cops had to be called who were also totally unhepful of course since the thief already had the cash in her possession. Awful service, we are never going back and I plan to inform the world of their thieving ways in as many places as I can. Awful business.

Ok... so we were there last night for a BDay party and we rented the room for the night and they didn't let us know about a minimum drink/food order. We didn't have a contract with them and this minimum was never discussed until it came time to pay. When it came to check out they stuck us with a $600.00 tab on top of what the 40 or so people paid individually. We thought it was unreasonable and their managers said that they have a min and we need to pay it or they will run it on our credit card anyway. Then they said "you can just take home several bottles of wine to make up the difference." So we did trying to be "fair" and "agreeable".
Then, they literally took 1.5 hours to find the bottles of wine, run the credit card, etc. Terrible. The very last thing you want to do as the party thrower, and Bday boy for 1.5 hours after you just drank and bowled for 4 hours. We asked for help to speed it up and their terrible waitress says in a snide way "I don't want to be here either, this wasn't exactly a huge party (looking for tips) and I want to leave too..."
Anyway, they lacked tack in every way... when we asked to speak with the decision maker my brother in law literally got kicked out of the bar for asking even thought it was polite.
We have had fun other times here and have had a good experience in general... until we came with a party. They showed total devotion to themselves over the customers and were just terrible to deal with. Apparently they have new management too... so maybe that is the difference from other experiences here.

I would highly discourage any large group from using the Garage as a venue. They clearly don't care about their customers... and again... the worst way to end a party is to standing there while someone takes an hour and a half checking you out. Terrible...

Cons: Terrible Service, terrible management, awful!

This place is horrible with the new owners/management. This was a regular place for us to go and play pool for the last 5 years, until just recently. On a Saturday night, I was threatened by one of their patrons. She prevented me from playing pool based on where she was sitting. I asked her to move and her boyfriend threatened me. He was screaming and making a scene. When I asked the doorman to help us with these people, it was quite obvious the screaming man was one of doorman's friends. The door man did nothing to help the situation, so we could play the pool game we were paying to play. When the verbal altercation with the patrons next to us continued, I asked to speak to the manager. I was ignored; he couldn't have cared less. The change in the atmosphere and the people who now go here reflects the horrible staff and management. I have never been threatened with a gun before, and it is not something I would ever had expected before. Avoid this place at all costs! It is now dangerous to go there.

Expensive ? over $300 for a party of 8
Horrible service - Takes for ever to receive service, and really no one cares. Also constantly messing up the orders and refuse to admit it.
Worst bar I have ever seen ? Chilled vodka is mixed with ice ? and allowed to sit making it extremely watered down ( I am Russian trust me I know my vodka, I also bartend). Kamikaze tastes like sugar water and lemon (should be lime and they over do it with triple sec)
Finally ? when asked to see the manager or the owner ? we were cut of the bar by saying ?good night? and then announcing to the whole place over the loud speakers not to ser us (BTW none of us was even close to being drunk). When I go out and we spend over $500 on drinks, pool and food, I expect service and I expect respect. We have respectfully left the place and will never come back I hope anyone who reads it will follow this example. There are plenty of great places around Seattle. Belltown billiards at least doesn?t water their drinks and has better music? (I am not affiliated with them)

This is a great hang-out place. They have a good selection of micro-brews and some good snacks. Lots of pool tables, although sometimes there is still a wait. One of the places we've scoped out that has a half-size shuffleboard table. A few lanes of bowling. Had a great time with friends after work and on New Year's Eve.

This place is for people who like to get down on their billiards, bowling, and straight gettin' their game on, son. Garage ain't no cookie cutter smoke filled bowling alley. The low lighting and stylish decor give it a jazzy vibe. Whether you're on a romantic date or looking to make some bad decisions, Garage is the place to be fo sho!!!

The food isn't splendid, but it's OK. I'm not a beer drinker and apparently beer is why this place exists. I had no idea that when you order a double here, they charge you for two cocktails, and cocktails here are $8! So two double gimlets and a quesadilla was $53! And by double here I'm not talking enormous drinks. Just something that isn't all ice. That's just plain greed.

If you go, drink beer (if you like beer). I won't go back. Too damn pricey!

This place is a gymboree for the 21 and over crowd. I have gone for several work parties and this is one of my favorite venues for them. The beer is great with some local breweries represented and the atmosphere is friendly and casual. Street parking can be difficult but can be found.

The tables are very decent, and it's so cheap especially during the daily happy hour. They play a variety of music. I have never tried their food yet, but this is definitely one of the best pool spot in Seattle!

The Garage is the PERFECT place to host a private party! The Spare Room is intimate - yet roomy with great sound, private bar, restrooms, bowling, pool and even shuffleboard! A big thanks to the team...Mike, Josh, Nate and Liz for making my husbands 40th birthday party a blast! Food was awesome, drinks were strong and the activities kept everyone entertained! You guys were so easy to work with...your flexibility with the hours, menu, decorations, and my many special requests made it so easy for me! It was a HUGE success! Thanks for making me look so good!

I recently hosted a 40th birthday party for my friend at the Garage. The general manager Mike Bitando really went out of his way to help set the event up. The staff during the event was FANTASTIC. Food was great too. We had about 70 people at the event, and I still keep receiving feedback from them on how much fun they had at the party. It was a great experience and I am definitely going to go back!

I am A Starbucks Manager and host many parties at the Garage. We always have an amazing time with our old and new employees.
The Manager Mike is great. Helpful with all my concerns. Its really amazing how much money we spend there, but every cent is Worth it. I had a server there, A MAN, KODY,which was rare considering I've only seen women servers there. Who generally don't leave a great impressions. He was AMAZING, Nice, Concerned, Quick, genuine, He seemed to really like people and his job. He laughed with me that he was the token MAN server. Because of him we have booked more parties at the Garage.
I tell everyone to visit for fun and food. The Beef Medallions are unbeleivable. The Lanes are the best iv'e ever bowled on. It clean and its classy.

The Manager Mike is great. Helpful with all my concerns. Its really amazing how much money we spend there, but every cent is Worth it. I had a server there, A MAN, KODY,which was rare considering I've only seen women servers there. Who generally don't leave a great impressions. He was AMAZING, Nice, Concerned, Quick, genuine, He seemed to really like people and his job. He laughed with me that he was the token MAN server. Because of him we have booked more parties at the Garage.
I tell everyone to visit for fun and food. The Beef Medallions are unbeleivable. The Lanes are the best iv'e ever bowled on. It clean and its classy.

Pros: Good food, Great service!

Cons: Parking can be a challenge.

I work really close to the Garage and there have been many times when my coworkers and I go to there for Happy Hour. I am very sad to see that not everybody feels the same way we do about the place. We love coming to the Garage!! There has not been a time when we leave the place not wanting to come back. The company I work for holds our annual summer party there and the place is always excellent in both service and atmosphere. We recently had our company party there and the food and drinks were very good. The servers were very very friendly and kept our glasses full at all times. The bartender Eric was great. The employees there always especially Heather, made sure everyone was doing well. I can definitely say that my friends and I find that the Garage is a great place to go for a simple Happy Hour and is great for major functions as well. The staff is well organized and Heather the server that waited on us on our company party was very exceptional. You definitely find not only me but also our whole office going back to the Garage repeatedly. Always a great time!!

I have never seen such worthless people attempting to work in a Seattle establishment. They treated people like we should be serving them. We were out for an evening of fun ready to spend some money on drinks, food and fun but instead played one game of pool and beat it over to a place that offered much, much better service and actually appreciated the business we were giving them. Save your money and your time, it certainly isn't worth it!!!!!

The lane next to where we were bowling was where all of the employees (that were "working" at the time) were bowling, so for the entire 2 hours that we were there, not once did anyone ask us if we wanted anything. The employees were all too busy sitting, hugging, cheering each other on, and enjoying thier own drinks. It's too bad the atmosphere is great, but thanks to the service i'll never waste my money there again.

There were tons tables open, but they were "reserved", though the tables remained open for the hour or so we were there. Since we had a party of 6, we asked if it was ok to sit in the dining area to drink, even if we didn't order food. They said yes, and then when the waitress came to serve us she told us we had to go sit in the bar (though the dining room was empty and the bar area was pretty crowded). Then the SAME waitress came and served us in the bar area. She was snotty, rude, forgot orders, brought the wrong orders, charged us incorrectly, flirted with my husband, and took forever. The drinks were not good at all either, very watered down.

It's too bad, cause this place HAS potential to be a cool place.

Ok.. Pool AND bowing, AND a bar under one roof. You just can't go wrong with that! The biggest down fall is there are only a few lanes for bowling, so unles you want to wait HOURS on the weekend for a lane, dont plan to bowl. There are like 20 some pool tables and they are usually easy to get. The evening can run into a lot here, but its definatly fun for the occasional night out with a large group of friends.

PROS: bowling,pool,beer.. need i say more?
CONS: not enough bowling lanes

I had a great time at the garage. Always an open pool table, free shuffleboard, and good fries. However, the drinks are more watered down than I've EVER had ANYWHERE... And after spending $90 on multiple tabs, I was chased down as I was leaving by my server, after leaving a $10 tip. She asked if I didn't like her or something, as though I gave a crappy tip. After much investigating, I found I had three separate tabs, and my tips were uneven. They are ALL lucky I tipped at all, after making me seem as though I don't know how to properly tip. No ranch? No energy drinks for chasers? The Garage gets a big FAT "F."

The Garage is actually a fun place to hang out. They have good drinks, friendly bartenders, lots of pool tables, and a fairly new bowling lane area. Everything is buy the hour, and on weekends, it gets expensive. But if you come here on certain weekday nights, the rate is cheap. They also have nice booths to sit in, which is a nice touch. Convenient Capitol Hill location.

PROS: Cheap on some nights, good stiff drinks, friendly staff.
CONS: Can be expensive and crowded on weekends, have to wait long for pool table.

Can't decide between Pool or Bowling?! Well decide when you get there. Garage offers 8 lanes for bowling on one side and and 18 pool tables on the other. They also offer a full-service bar and restaurant. It's a very relaxing environment. Garage offers daily specials/happy hour prices for both billiards and bowling. Can be hard to find a lane, but I went on a Sunday afternoon and we were the only ones. It's a 21 and over establishment but minors can eat in the restaurant before 10pm. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, and good mixed drinks.

PROS: Lots of pool tables and friendly staff.
CONS: Positioning of people on lanes when it's a small crowd.

Great location, the place is super clean/new and the staff is really friendly. Your best (and only) bet for a pool hall or bowling in Cap Hill. The cheapest pitcher, $10 for High Life make, make it an expensive experience.

I've always had fun at the Garage until I went bowling. Not only is the place way too packed, but they don't carry enough shoes in common sizes. I ended up waiting about half an hour for shoes, meanwhile the clock was running on my lane rental and they wouldn't give me a break. What a ripoff.

Me and my friends goto Garage quite a bit and everyone we take loves the place. Good drinks, great tables, great atmospehere. Everyone is there to have agood time and play some good pool. Though on a busy night it can be hard to find a straight cue. Most of their staff is very helpful and friendly. I have never tried the food yet, bet the drinks are always good. I just wish I could afford to go more offen. I have

Excellent poolhall/bar. The tables are big with lots of room to shoot. The bar is great, and the food is tasty. A good crowd comes to the Garage. You'll see a very diverse crowd, but very friendly.

Editorial from

Located in a once bustling 1928 auto repair shop, this boisterous hang-out honors its blue-collar roots with extensive chrome and vinyl detailing. The venue holds 25 pool tables and 20 bowling lanes, but it's also a favorite Capitol Hill…
