used to be cool, lame now. best to avoid – If you like overcrowded bars packed with Dbags who love getting wasted and fighting... this is your bar.

used to be awesome, but playboy wrote it up and now it sucks. tons of other better bars in ballard with people who know how to drink like adults and handle their booze.

I usually like this place but. . . . . . . . . – So I have had a lot of fun at this place but I was recently there for my girlfriends bday party with a party of about 20. We were having a time, good time to be honest... but then I "did it".... I whistled.... and promptly afterword I was greeted by a little bouncer named Derrick Peffkin (sp?) who ejected me without mercy. Shocked as I was I did not put up a fight until he shove my girlfriend (birthday girl) in the back on her way out. As a industry veteran, I just don't get why these places let these type of Dbags represent them when clearly they have no idea. Our total tab count was up near $1000 and I just don't see why a whistle was worth that business, no to mention we are sweet. gday!

Best burger I was told... – eh..... mediocre at best. The patty was dry, overcooked and really quite tasteless. We had 9 people in our group and we all felt the same about the burgers. But, I dig the joint, it feels good has a cool vibe and the waitress was fantastic. I'll try the burger again if I'm in the neighborhood but I'm not driving out there again for that one, there are better ones out there to be had, but I am willing to consider that it may have been a fluke, off night.

Happy times at the Holidays – When our friends came into town but we couldnt drive to our planned holiday party because of weather--we knew we had to take them to King's so after slushing thru the snow in the cold it was great to find them open. King's saved Christmas! a warm and welcome oasis. The kitchen was closed but the awesome staff had big plates of homemade cookies for everyone. After many, many drinks and too much skee ball we managed to slip and slide all the way on our walk home.

Rude ,slack service becuase that's how hip I am. – Just that. Rude and slack.

This is a quote;

" we don't ususally do that, change your beer out. You really should try a taste first." This without meeting my eyes.

I'll just spend my money elsewhere's thanks.

Notice that your bar is kinda busy? – What happened to the bar on the deck? We used to be able to slide out there and get a quick round of drinks (okay shots) when the bar was packed inside. Now I have to wait for the whole waitress attention-order-wait-get driniks-wait-ask for tab-wait-close out fiasco. We have money to spend please take it from us. The Deck bar made it about 1000% easier to get a new round.

Anyway my friends and I love Kings and will come back again but maybe not on the weekends if it is such a production. Weekend Bar-staff gets mad props by the way. When you can find a seat at the bar it rocks...Waiting at a table--Eh.

Fun time in the hood – I recently just moved to Ballard from Fremont and I must say despite the rumors that King's Hardware is very crowded on the weekends, I think I have found my new neighborhood haunt. The burgers are great and I've found that when I'm not in the mood for burgers they have a bunch of cheap beer, who needs food really when you have booze? I know this place gets a lot of sh** for being a "meat market" or filled with d-bags on the weekends, but hey it's not the bar's fault that it's a fun place to drink Jager shots. The staff is always super friendly even the first time I went in there. It's a fun bar period. Seattle has become a town full of hipsters and d-bags, it's nice to find a place that still has a good sense of humor, drinks, and staff that doesn't take themselves too seriously.

BAD service, RUDE, meat market – We had to flag our server down and ask for everything...a second drink and our bill. other than that, our server didn't talk to us. My friend asked for a recommendation and he replied ONE WORD and then just looked at her. uh...OK.....gee thanks. It was a guy server in a fedora hat. and it wasn't super busy either.

Also, I get that the serving-beer-in-a-can thing is "kitchy" but that doesn't make me like it.

We went on a saturday night about 9:00 and the cookie-cutter Girl-in-Summer-Dress- dangly earrings was everywhere. Dumb. girls get dressed up to go HERE?? it's not belltown.

I'll go back on a lazy afternoon to try the food but the weekends are a meat market.
