The Old Town is my favorite bar in Seattle for beer and nice bar grub. As the title states, the Fish is really good. It's fresh cod battered in and deep fried but there is something special about the crust and the tartar. What makes it

The Old Town is my go-to pub in Ballard! The food is always great and it's not too expensive. On my most recent visit I had the fried eggplant sandwich which was delicious and my fiance had the beef dip, which he loved. The house salad

Found this place back in 2006, and was instantly a fan. The bar/restaurant is spacious and accommodating for small groups as well as families. The food is above average and reasonably priced. The staff has always been polite and prompt.

Got a table on a Friday night at 8pm with no wait! Food was delicious and the beer selection was great. Atmosphere was fun and relaxed.

Old Town Alehouse is a great place to unwind. Yummy food and beer, a perfect place to meet friends and catch up on the week. The atmosphere is great and the prices are reasonable.

I've been going to Old Town for a few years now, and I almost always get the eggplant rustica sandwich. The sandwich is a great choice even for non-vegetarians. My fiance loves the barbecued beef sandwich as well, and they have a great selection of microbrews on tap. The fries are really good too, lots of salt and pepper and some shredded cheese sprinkled on top. Parking can be a pain, and sometimes it's pretty cold inside the restaurant, but otherwise it's an excellent choice for lunch or dinner or even just a drink.

Better than average bar fare. The sandwiches are all very good and the salads are fresh. I've had spotty service though and hope that they get back on track. Most times something is forgotten whether it's a refill on a drink, a salad,

The beer line up is good. Lots of fresh local beers that cover the spectrum of all the styles. There is porter, stout, hefe, pils, IPA, amber ale, etc. Small but dependable bottle list. The food is pretty good for pub-grub. Some

Pros: Solid beer line up with some good menu items

Cons: Hours. Closing at 10? I don't get it. Don't you want to be open and busy?

Quiet, homey ambience, good beer selection, really good lunch/dinner menu suited to the place. An Irish pub in Ballard which easily beats most of the actual Irish pubs I've been to (21 from Dublin to Galway). Quick, non-intrusive service

Pros: Ambience, Food, Ales, quiet, friendly

Cons: Parking in Ballard

It's funny. 2 of the other reviews have cited "poor service" as a major drawback of the Old Town Alehouse. But I have received great service there. The wait staff is businesslike, sure but they do their job well. The food is good. I

The most rude bartender i've ever had! My wife and I left after our first drink ... they should be in bellevue, not ballard.

Very Dissapointing Place! Does not belong in Ballard. Clearly belongs in a shopping mall or suburban plaza. Not sure if it's a franchise-chain, but it sure seems like it. The staff is very rude, and the food is average at best. They

Cons: rude people, bad ambience, high prices

the fact that it's non-smoking is the only thing going for this place. the atmosphere was stuffy, our service was rude (in a quiet, passive-aggressive kind of way), and the beer, while good, was certainly not unique enough to be worth the

The Old Town Alehouse is a great little find. It's out of the way, so it's not usually really crowded. It's really great for lunch. The beer and ale list is wonderful and they know it well. Belgian ales are their specialty. The food is
