Delicious! You have to check this place out. – My wife and I had been to the Honeyhole for drinks a few times, but never made it for lunch. We finally visited for lunch last week, and couldn't believe we had been missing this seattle gem for so long! The sandwiches were AWESOME and were very reasonably priced. The sandwiches come in two sizes which is especially convenient too. I can't wait to go back! I recommend this place for anytime of day...great food and great atmosphere.
Best damn food on Capitol Hill – After living on Capitol Hill for two years I've found most of the restaurants up there to be unimpressive, with a few exceptions. Honeyhole is one exception. While their service has never been very good when I've gone in I really must say I don't care as much once the food arrives. The place is bustling and its kind of a nice place to people watch. The sandwiches are to die for and the french fries are among the top three ever. Go in expecting awesome food and mediocre service and this place will definitely not disappoint, especially not late at night when it is one of the few places open.
weekdays only! – All in all, the whole package is great. Price, service, atmosphere, quality, etc. I suggest going for lunch or weekdays, as the weekend bartender is THE WORST! his attitude ranges from aloof to plain hostile, and the clearly overserved loudmouths at the bar will make you want to order that sandwich to go. The waitstaff is friendly and unpretentious, but their charm, and the music are not enough to drown out the drunken social outcasts at the bar. i suggest going duning the week, when the pleasant, attentive bartenders are there, or sitting far far away from the bar. good food though, and a great neaghborhood joint!
the honeyhole rocks!!!! – i have been going to the honeyhole for almost four years now and it is strange to read that some people find it gloomy:( the honeyhole is the most eccentric place in seattle. they play good music...the sandwiches, burgers,salads are of high quality and totally delicious!!! the service is unique....good service....the same people have worked there for years...shows me that it is a clean,nice environment for a job. if you take one minute to look around you will notice all of the small things that make the honeyhole the coolest place to be in seattle. besides all that there are always interesting , nice people to look at or chat with. i rate it a 10! i heart the honeyhole!!!!!
Dark, gloomy atmosphere...sandwiches overrated – We picked up sandwiches based on Honeyhole being rated a 10 for sandwiches on citysearch and were very disappointed in the sandwich quality. If you are looking for a traditional deli sandwich, you are better off going to a Safeway deli. The cookies were boring and dry. The clientele and staff are eccentric. The Honeyhole is a dark, gloomy place...not your traditional place to pick up sandwiches on a sunny Saturday afternoon.
One word - AWESOME!!! – You've gotto try them!! I read their review here, and decided to try them. Unlike some other reviews, I did not feel that the service was bad. For the kind of Sandwiches they serve .....its worth waiting!!! Slurp..SLurp... :-)
nothing like it in city – I just moved to the neighborhood and was so pleased to discover this place. Their sandwiches are yummy delicious, very reasonably priced. Gets a little crowded at lunch so I go at night. The cocktails at night are a major bonus too. A great neighborhood place to go!
worst service EVER – I have been to honeyhole over 20 times...mostly because the food is amazing and others mostly agree. But every single time I have been in for dinner, it takes 10 minutes to get noticed, the server avoids eye contact, and on several occasions has been so rude that I refuse to leave a tip. (I am a BIG tipper.) If I can help it, I am never, ever going to go back there again.
Lunch joint by day, lounge by night; this versatile shop hits the spot. – In Short
An array of colorfully named sandwiches constructed from a variety of ingredients has been the calling card of this Capitol Hill establishment since its inception in 1999. The addition of a full bar keeps crowds coming well past the lunch rush. Low lighting, comfortable booths and kitschy decor, featuring a hodgepodge of Mexican, tiki and local effects, make the conversion from day to night seamless.
HoneyHole Keepin' It Real – Damn, that's a good sandwich! I like to spread my cash around to independent businesses, and this place is solid. Comfortable atmosphere, good for drinking, and an always interesting clientele. Really good music. Saddle up to the bar and get to know someone. Great sandwiches. I hit the 'Hole before and after shows. Thanks guys!
