Great happy hour & staff – It's one of the best neighborhood dive bars that I've found. There's other great places in the neighborhood, but this place has the feel of a neighborhood living room. The free pool, cool staff, and sports on TV (no big screens though) and regular customers make it just feel like a great place to go.
The prices are cheap, especially the Tightway Tuesdays ($1.00 cans of Rainier) and food specials (like happy hour Fried Mac & Cheese. The food is decent, and the staff is always having fun. The dining room (non-smoking) is a little dark, but the place has an all-ages pub feel in it.
It's not the typical NW bar scene, but it's a great change of pace, and a fun place for the locals to hang out.
Neighborhood Pub the way it should be – Man, I love this place. I love the atmosphere, the owner, the servers and the food. I always feel like I'm at home. At a home with free pool and tasty little corndogs, mind you. The juke box is gone, which is a huge bummer but the rest of the Crackerjack just keeps getting better and better. I don't know a better place to get a salad in a bar. And the patio is great for an afternoon beer.
WHAT HAPPENED? – I USED TO GO TO CRACKERJACK'S 2-3 TIMES WEEKLY FOR LUNCH. I WENT ON A DAY WHEN THEY WERE, PER THE MANAGER, EXTREMELY BUSY. BUSIER THAN THEY HAD BEEN FOR A WHILE. MYSELF AND FOUR OTHER CO-WORKERS RECIVED THE WORST TREATMENT I HAVE EVER RECIEVED IN ANY ESTABLISHMENT. I WAS TOTALLY SHOCKED AS I HAD BEEN GOING THERE REGULARLY FOR ABOUT 4 MONTHS. WHAT HAPPENED THAT DAY? THE OWNER DISREGARDED MY COMPLAINT BUT WAS NICE ABOUT IT. JUST STATED THAT HE DID NOT BELIEVE HIS MANAGER DID THAT, EVEN THOUGH ALL 5 OF US E-MAILED HIM. WITH NO RESPONSE MIGHT I ADD.
GREAT PIZZA – I read about this place in the NW Examiner and it mentioned the great 'za, so I decided to try it. I was not dissapointed. The crust is thin and crunchy, the fixin's were great too. The service was fast. Crackerjacks has a great neighborhood, friendly atmosphere. I would recommend this as a great place to grab a beer and pizza after work (great prices at happy hour.)
Great Pizza & Excellent Service! – I found Crackerjacks about 5 months ago and am now addicted. I love it! the pizza is excellent. One of the best pizza's I have ever had. Everything else that I have tried on the menu so far has been delicious! The service is excellent! The bartenders and wait staff are so friendly. They also have free pool, great nightly dinner specials, outside seating at Saturday Barbecues. I highly reccomend it!
