Apres-ski on Phinney Ridge – No matter the time of year, it's always a winter wonderland at Sully's, a tiny, Bavarian-style A-frame lodge planted at the top of Phinney Ridge. Snowshoes and a stuffed goose decorate one wall; a gas fireplace occupies the other. In between are a pair of vintage pinballs, a few worn-in booths, several tabletops, and a slew of worn-in neighborhood regulars. Warm and cozy in January or Juneuary (Seattle's early summer can be kinda brutal) it's a great spot for sampling some 20+ unusual brews on tap, many of them local. This is a beer bar, not a cocktail bar or scene spot, which means it's OK if you linger over a game of Scrabble or pump the jukebox and rock out to air guitar with a pint in your hand. If, lo and behold, it's nice outside, there's a small beer garden right outside. Don't fear the homemade chili.
Owner's lost his way – The owner gets wasted and chases women (out of his place) including his staff (short term employment.) His customers are a bunch of loser yahoos that exert their opinion on anyone with half an ear lobe.
The place has great asthetic, and great potential, but until the first two issues are fixed (new owner and new tenants), avoid and cross the street to the Pub.
Mean locals, dirty beer and uncomfortable if you don't know anyone. – This place could be so cool. Too bad the owner is a weirdo and the locals that hang out there are too good for you and don't take kindly to new faces. Also it would help if he cleaned his beer lines. All the beers had this vinager buttery thing going on that was terrible.
good beer selection – and they also allow dogs on the patio...they offer a neighborhood vibe and feel...i always feel comfortable when i am here and the locals are friendly....i would go back
Hang out with tim and his crew – The changes Tim made to the bar are great. The old bar was full of heavey smokers and drug usuers. I'm glad that messy crew went to the bottom of the hill, thats a good place for them Tim has a huge selection of beers on tap and there always fresh. Tims a great story teller and has lots of great events and or functions throughout the year. If you want some great beer and want to watch some baseball sullys is the place to go. Thanks for the great service Tim. See ya soon Tim.

Good mix a neighborly friends – Sully's has the low key atmosphere for relaxing after a game or a hard day at the daily grind. A lot a attention is paid to giving the customers what they want, either a well filled pint of a bit of sage advise. The great part about Sully is that he waves the Gaelic flag not because it is fashionable but because he is 4th generation Irish.
Stay away unless you know Sully... – This could be a great place if the regulars all got a life. Great atmosphere as far as the structure & decorations are concerned, but the locals get jealous if you have more fun than they do. Skip Sully's and go to the Baranof, or try out the bar now run by those who started Sully's before it was Sully's, the Reading Gaol down the hill on 65th. It has better beer & far better people...
