Good food, simple bar – I love this bar and I love all their food. they have the best nachos in town. And surprisingly enough they put together a pretty amazing hummus plate too! Never had bad food here and the mixed drinks are how I like them, a little strong. Service can be slow or seem unfriendly but I think it's part of their charm.
Not as good as I remembered – Saturday night around 9:00. Not busy but service was very slow and inattentive, "remarkably bad" according to my companion. Music was too loud. The burger was not fresh or 1/3 lb as advertised. Good cheese and condiments although no mustard was offered. Bun to meat ratio was way too high. Good onion rings and fries but both were over salted. Fish and chips used to be great back in the day. Now, not so much. Tough batter that did not stay on the fish. Cole slaw was okay, nothing special. Lot's of places offer wide selections of beer these days. No reason to return to Cooper's in my opinion.
An established neighborhood pub in Maple Leaf with a deep selection of beer and amenities – In Short
Cooper's is one of the original Seattle neighborhood alehouses, with plenty of tables and booths in the spacious drinking area. The crowd is a friendly mix of neighborhood locals who come to unwind, watch sports, socialize and participate in the popular Tuesday night trivia game. The bar offers 22 frequently changing taps: all the familiar Northwest labels and rotating selections of new ones.
Great place to watch all the games! – Cooper's is a very comfortable place with fantastic access to all major sports on the multiple High Definition plasma and projection televisions mounted generously throughout the place. The crowd is young and fun. The food is fantastic traditional pub fare with a few unique dishes mixed in to keep things interesting. Free video games, darts, and pool always provide a distraction if one is needed. The free board games and weekly trivia contests are also good times with friends. Thursday night $2 pints is a popular night too. Check it out on Sunday's for the NFL Sunday ticket where you can pretty much be sure to watch your favorite team in an fun atmosphere full of fantasy football junkies.
In general I like everything about Cooper's Ale House. The beer selection, cocktails (stiff pours I might add), and food are all great. The staff is friendly, and you always feel welcome.
Sweetaz Local pub – Great food,beer and drinks. Great seasonal brews from winter brew to IPA fest to octoberfest. Steel tip darts boards(4 set up nicely) pool (free on Sun)and trivia Tues.are a must. All the best board games you played as a kid and an adult. Football Sundays rock,all the games you want to see from 10:00 am till the eve. game. The staff rocks till they get slammed then its bar service vs. slow table service.But generally have enough staff on hand to take on any crowd. Food is above average pub grub. Gotta try the chicken Ceaser,the gobbler sandwich, french dip, french bread pizza and kickass buffalo wings. Infamous fish and chips.Great place makes for good times
Great Pub Grub and atmosphere – Cooper's is a classic neighborhood pub. (kinda like Cheers!) You go enough and everyone knows your name...Great place to watch a game(great breakfast bar for Fantasy Football Sundays...) or just kick back..The food is pretty good for a local pub..the service at the bar is great.. it is a warm inviting Pub atmosphere. I recommend Trivia Tuesdays and $2.50 pint Thursdays, these typically draw a fun crowd. Check it out.
Try it out... – Great neighborhood pub and it's not even my neighborhood! Plenty of choices of good beer on tap and the cocktails are tasty. Nice atmosphere to just hang. Plenty of sports viewing as well. Active darts league as well. Stop in some Sunday for Hawks football and enjoy some good food.
great wait staff! great atmosphere – Cooper's is one of the best neighborhhood pubs in the city. It's my "Cheers"
Love sitting at the bar or with a big group. Everyone feels welcome.
Fresh jalepeno's on the nacho's no less!
And the margarita's are the best I have had outside of Mexico!
Fun Pub – Cooper's is a great pub with lots of good beer, great drinks made by friendly and fun bartenders, yummy food (too many good things to pick favorites), and a nice crowd. It fun to play darts or pool or board games if you want. It's not too crowded, but gets busier later on the weekends. Trivia on Tuesdays is a good time and challenging. Sunday football is great, with a good breakfast buffet, and lots of fans and cheering for the Seahawks (enough TVs to watch all the games). It seems like a nice well-rounded bar with something for everyone!
best beer and nachos – I'm new in town and a coworker recommended Cooper's to me. I really liked how much of a casual place it was. The staff was very friendly and the food was terrific. I had the nachos and they were perfect to me. I tried a few different kinds of beer and I was amazed at the huge selection they had. I was there when there was trivia and I loved how many "regulars" there were. You can tell it was a place to hang out with your friends and just have a good time! The atmosphere was inviting.
I recommend the nachos!
