WARNING!! This is not a legitimate company and they will rip you off. They are part of a nationallocksmith scam that is happening all across America. These companies are notorious for taking advantage of vulnerable people who have been locked out of their car, home or business. They falsely advertise and quote low prices for their services then when they get to your location, they change the pricing most often OVER-CHARGING CUSTOMERS BY HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS!! To make matters worse, most of them are not even American citizens!! BEWARE!!!

On the phone, they told me $25 + labor starting at $40. When they arrived they told me $90 for labor, even though it would be 10 minutes work. It did in fact take 10 minutes. They really had no excuse for this change and stuck with it even though I told them I would leave a bad review.

"Bait & Switch Operation!! Beware of these guys as they are not a real company and they do not have a business located at the address they list on 6th Avenue. They are part of a nation wide locksmith ring who are ripping people off all across America. They quote low prices for their service then when the technician arrives, he jacks up the price 3 or 4 times the original quote, then they force you to get money from a cash machine. Their favorite targets are women and elderly folks who are locked out of their car, home or business. BEWARE OF THESE THEIVES!!

smells bad, horrible food, and weak drinks. I've had a couple sour/old beers so now I usually order a bottle or can. cocktails are a joke.

this place is rarely packed and there is usually ample seating... but that's probably due more to

Just thinking of this place warms my heart. It smells heavenly. Like pork. It's tucked snugly on the corner, the last stretch of the pub crawl route. I like to skip the rest and go straight to the Lock and Keel. It's got a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere. You can hang out , listen to the juke box and shoot pool, but I wouldn't call it a dive. There's usually just enough room, and the other patrons are usually more than willing to make some if there's not. Friendly staff, stiff drinks, good beer selection, good food, and a mix of all kinds of people... Lock and Keel is what's great about Ballard.

This is a lovely, very laid-back and fun place to hang out. There are lots of seats so it's usually no problem finding a table. They also serve tasty pub food. The macaroni and cheese is especially good! You get a good mix of people and will even find some willing to strike up a conversation, which is a nice surprise in a Seattle bar! The waitstaff and guy checking IDs at the door are all friendly and professional. Probably my favorite bar in Ballard! No pretentions, just fun times.

The Lock & Keel is a mellow and comforting bar on the Ballard bar list. The bartenders, particularly Brian, kick butt. It's a great place to grab a pint after work or before you go out and get loopy with your amigos.

Pros: music, inexpensive, good parking

Cons: no male strippers

Editorial from

A nautical themed, low-key Ballard watering hole. With pool tables and ample seating, decent pub food and friendly servers.
