The sound of pool balls ricocheting off one another welcomes you into this this spacious bar/pool hall/bowing alley. A Happy Hour on draught beer that's hard to beat in this city will keep you glued to your bar stool until your next shot at the billiards table. And when the sun decides to pop out - there's an outside deck where you can store up on some Vitamin D.
Love a cold beer paired with solid bar food and a game of pool or bowling? Look no further than The Garage. Home to all of the above plus outdoor seating and a daily happy hour featuring $10 hr lane rental, $5 hr table rental and pints for just $2.50.
Rude, crowded and expensive and has watered down vodka...... – Expensive ? over $300 for a party of 8
Horrible service - Takes for ever to receive service, and really no one cares. Also constantly messing up the orders and refuse to admit it.
Worst bar I have ever seen ? Chilled vodka is mixed with ice ? and allowed to sit making it extremely watered down ( I am Russian trust me I know my vodka, I also bartend). Kamikaze tastes like sugar water and lemon (should be lime and they over do it with triple sec)
Finally ? when asked to see the manager or the owner ? we were cut of the bar by saying ?good night? and then announcing to the whole place over the loud speakers not to ser us (BTW none of us was even close to being drunk). When I go out and we spend over $500 on drinks, pool and food, I expect service and I expect respect. We have respectfully left the place and will never come back I hope anyone who reads it will follow this example. There are plenty of great places around Seattle. Belltown billiards at least doesn?t water their drinks and has better music? (I am not affiliated with them)
Watch that liquor! – The food isn't splendid, but it's OK. I'm not a beer drinker and apparently beer is why this place exists. I had no idea that when you order a double here, they charge you for two cocktails, and cocktails here are $8! So two double gimlets and a quesadilla was $53! And by double here I'm not talking enormous drinks. Just something that isn't all ice. That's just plain greed.
If you go, drink beer (if you like beer). I won't go back. Too damn pricey!
Close fun for SU – Went here for some friend's 21st parties while attending SU. Fun little place that can get pretty busy at night. Decent prices, good place to sit and chat and meet people. Also, pool and bowling within steps of the university!
Great Pool and Bowling. Restaurant servers and kind of rude. – Have had great experiences with pool hall and bowling alley. Restaurant servers are a bit to be desired with their personality.
Great place to play pool – The tables are very decent, and it's so cheap especially during the daily happy hour. They play a variety of music. I have never tried their food yet, but this is definitely one of the best pool spot in Seattle!
Best Place for Private Parties! Flexibility, Great Food, Fun Entertainment... – The Garage is the PERFECT place to host a private party! The Spare Room is intimate - yet roomy with great sound, private bar, restrooms, bowling, pool and even shuffleboard! A big thanks to the team...Mike, Josh, Nate and Liz for making my husbands 40th birthday party a blast! Food was awesome, drinks were strong and the activities kept everyone entertained! You guys were so easy to work with...your flexibility with the hours, menu, decorations, and my many special requests made it so easy for me! It was a HUGE success! Thanks for making me look so good!
Fantastic Service – I recently hosted a 40th birthday party for my friend at the Garage. The general manager Mike Bitando really went out of his way to help set the event up. The staff during the event was FANTASTIC. Food was great too. We had about 70 people at the event, and I still keep receiving feedback from them on how much fun they had at the party. It was a great experience and I am definitely going to go back!
Amazing Place! Everything! – I am A Starbucks Manager and host many parties at the Garage. We always have an amazing time with our old and new employees.
The Manager Mike is great. Helpful with all my concerns. Its really amazing how much money we spend there, but every cent is Worth it. I had a server there, A MAN, KODY,which was rare considering I've only seen women servers there. Who generally don't leave a great impressions. He was AMAZING, Nice, Concerned, Quick, genuine, He seemed to really like people and his job. He laughed with me that he was the token MAN server. Because of him we have booked more parties at the Garage.
I tell everyone to visit for fun and food. The Beef Medallions are unbeleivable. The Lanes are the best iv'e ever bowled on. It clean and its classy.
Always a great time ans great service! – I work really close to the Garage and there have been many times when my coworkers and I go to there for Happy Hour. I am very sad to see that not everybody feels the same way we do about the place. We love coming to the Garage!! There has not been a time when we leave the place not wanting to come back. The company I work for holds our annual summer party there and the place is always excellent in both service and atmosphere. We recently had our company party there and the food and drinks were very good. The servers were very very friendly and kept our glasses full at all times. The bartender Eric was great. The employees there always especially Heather, made sure everyone was doing well. I can definitely say that my friends and I find that the Garage is a great place to go for a simple Happy Hour and is great for major functions as well. The staff is well organized and Heather the server that waited on us on our company party was very exceptional. You definitely find not only me but also our whole office going back to the Garage repeatedly. Always a great time!!
A pool hall and bowling alley for the young, hip and amateur. – In Short
This isn't old-school--table rental is expensive, the restaurant serves what it calls "international-homestyle" cuisine and pool sharks don't exactly haunt the place. Add to that the cachet of celebrity partners (Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready) and patrons (local sports figures and musicians), plus a friendly ambience, and you've got a scene-oriented pool hall and bowling alley. Cocktails and shooting stick are the main attractions, but don't bypass the food, especially the thin-crust pizzas.
