I went to 13 coins on 4th of July around 2am, it was quite unruly (very bad crowd) and no security in sight. As I approached the entrance I was harrassed by people who were outside drinking alcohol and picking fights. After getting my name

Looks like the Rat Pack could walk in any second. Leather high back studded bar stools, pendant lighting, and a relaxed staff all contribute to the retro styling. Food was delicious, but watch out! Not a place for dieters! They don't hold

13 Coins have mastered the art of destroying simple, healthy breakfasts. My spinach omelet was swimming in a pool of oil, and contained a gross lumpy bechamel sauce. And they had the guts to charge $10 for ruining some eggs.

I am sure this restaurant is great during the day but not so good at 3 am. The cooks and staff are probebly tired by that time. I ordered filet mignon as did three others with me. Our steaks were way overdone, CHEWY! And it took us three hours from start to finish, because it took them so long to get us our food! We werent very pleased but the manager apologized, told us she has had many problems with them this week and gave us a discount. It is pricey there but the food is very good. Could be just one bad day.

Come to one of Seattle's most well known restaurants. It's no surprise that it's so well known, the food is great, the service is terrific, the atmosphere fantastic, what more could you want? The prices are a little high, however it's worth it. They don't mind making any substitutions so don't be afraid to ask. I recommend any of their steaks, they're tender and juicy.

13 coins is the only restaurant i know, ever, that serves great food anytime of the day or night. the menu includes new york steak to the king salmon. very unlikely to find in the late eves of the night. the place itself, is such a suitable place for the young 21 and older crowd. there are booths for the privacy for each party. and the tables are candle lit. the feel of the restaurant is like the good 'ol western days. so, cowboys and cowgirls, grab your hats and taste some luxurious food at 13 coins!

A Seattle institution since 1967, this high-quality, all-American restaurant is famous for 24-hour service year-round. A visit to the darkly-lit spot, known for its huge, always available breakfasts, is like taking a time machine ride back…
