The fact that my friend and I were seated, served beer along with two decent brunches from a bright-eyed server wearing high-heeled boots during one of the biggest NFL playoff games of the season speaks volumes about this place. It's pretty much standing room only when the Big Game is on, but the service is friendly and the energy is contagious.
Maybe just a bad day? But still...won't go back.. Off day (1/2/12), few customers. After seating ourselves and sitting a while, had to ask the bartender if they were serving food since we weren't getting service. Server showed up 10 minutes later (did I mention there was almost no one else there?), took our order. Drinks showed up 15 minutes later (did I mention...oh, I did). Had to get my own straw and napkin/coasters for my drink. Then we saw our server out front having a cigarette. Bottom line: fries were really good, everything else pretty much sucked.
DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE HEADLINES! HORRIBLE!.
People waited to be seated for almost 20 minutes before leaving.
Have to hunt down waitresses
Management is by far the worst I've seen after living in 6 different cities.
Food is decent, but this is common to just about every place to eat in this area.
If you're looking for a sports bar DO NOT GO HERE!
Great HH. This is one of my favorite spots to time travel after a fab dinner. Now that they've added fresh fish to the special you don't have to go for the usual fare.
Great Happy hour. Great Happy hour and fin place to watch the game. Decent beer selection, and service is pretty good for being so busy.
I love this place!!!. Great drinks, attentive service, welcoming staff, community atmosphere. These are just a few of the reasons that I am a regular at Spitfire. I live in the belltown area and frequent many bars and Spitfire is at the top of my list. Whether I am the bar or sitting at a table I get great service. The staff is cool and chill. The lamb skewers and the BLT are amazing!!! I am ready for some football!! Go Hawks!!!
new favorite place!. I went to spitfire recently for a birthday party my friend was having in their private backroom, and have been back almost every day since. They have a killer happy hour, discounts on both food and drinks! and the food specials are all under $5!! I spend $10 on dinner and 2 drinks and always end up leaving the girls who work there a ten spot for their great personalitys...They get every game I could ever ask for and also have been showing election returns, very cool. I like this place because I can go in anytime, dressed for work, a night out or just rolling out of bed and I feel at home. The place is not pretenious, if you *think* you are really cool, this is probably not the place for you, but if you like good inexpensive food, strong drinks and great conversation, come in, I will be sitting at the bar-
average.... I have some friends that live in the area and so we come in on occasion to have some drinks. There are certain days we avoid because there is one female bartender that must think large fake breasts are the answer to everything because the attitude is ridiculous but if she's there we sit at a table because the servers are usually pretty easy going.
The spitfire staff act like they're serving movie stars from Beverly Hills with their snodiness. I totally agree with the last review. I receive an email about for the Cinco De Mayo posting for this Monday and you could'nt pay me enough money to step a foot in that place. Whatever happen to customer service because they don't have it. NONE. Oh! the food is awful. It you're going serve mexican food at least try to make it authentic and I'm 1/2 mexican. I would not feed that mess to my dog if I was homeless.
The customers will see their true colors and hopefully this place will go out of busines becuase is awful.
Don't no go there for Cinco De Mayo, your evening will be ruin.
Not LGBT Welcoming. I have to agree with the previous posting. I've been here twice, and both times the bar/restaurant was not very welcoming to my group of LGBT friends. I don't plan on returning to this bar, and won't be referring this venue to any friends.
We chose the Spitfire for their large and reasonably priced VIP room for a birthday party recently. The photos on their website do it more justice than in person but still not too bad. The party consisted of predominantly women most of whom are lesbian and a few guys. As the night progressed my friend who we were throwing the party for went to the restroom with her girlfriend. Both, shared a stall due to the line and came out a few seconds later. An "employee" saw them come out of the stall together and assumed that they MUST have just finished having sex....OF COURSE. Two girls.......one stall. This was not the case and the rather large bouncer approached the birthday girl and began to physically man handle her asking her to leave. He told her that his "manager" had given him orders to remove her from the bar because of what had happened in the restroom. She was confused and politely asked him to talk this out with her because she had NO idea what he was talking about. He kept grabbing her and roughing her up. Her arm was badly bruised the next day. We kept asking to talk to the manager but no manager ever appeared. We dropped A LOT of money that night on a bar tab for a party of 40 + guests. When the "manager" was finally notified that the person they were trying to throw out was actually the b-day girl who's credit card help the deposit for the space they let her stay. Needless to say this put a damper on the evening and we all closed out our tabs shortly after. This is Belltown people!!! Homosexuals and heteros have been getting along here for years!!! I think the Spitfire needs a lesson on human kindness and customer service. Lord knows they could use it.
Homosexuals beware.....this is not a good place to have a drink or a party.......or the bathroom for that matter!!! God only knows what they think you might be doing in there!!!
