www.alehousebothell.com Taken from their web site: "Classic cuisine and a huge selection of craft brews. The Main Street Ale House opened as a restaurant in the summer of 1996. It recently relocated from downtown Bothell and moved in with Preservation Kitchen. The Ale House is now located in the 1916 historical Kaysner Estate. Owners, Gary and Susan Southwick strive to provide excellent dining at a reasonable price."
I went there with some friends and I had the Mac and Salad: Ziti, bacon, cheddar cheese sauce, breadcrumbs and Caesar salad. My friends had, Beet and Quinoa Salad: Roasted beets, quinoa, arugula, Daphne goat Gouda, lemon vinaigrette and the other friend had the Artichoke and Feta Cakes: Cabbage & jalapeno slaw, feta & oregano. Every thing was very fresh, good portions and very good!!! They have 16 different types of beer on tap and they change often. When you go through the rest of the place it is very cool. The bedrooms are converted n to dining rooms. One seats only 6, which is great for a private get together. A great place and I highly recommend trying it out!

www.boxhouseseattle.com Located in Pioneer Square area, the Box House name comes from, goes back in the late 1800's when Pubs and Saloons in the Pioneer Square are were commonly referred to as "Box Houses". They have a U shaped bar that seats around 12 to 15. It is packed before the Seattle Seahawks of the NFL games, virtually as soon as the doors open. So it is tough to tell how good the service is as it is so busy in there and you can't avoid the line ups. They have a second level. I haven't had the food here but a couple of people rated it as fair. It is a short walk to Century Link Field and Safeco Field. 9 beer on tap including rotating IPA's and seasonal beer. I had a good time before Seahawks games!!

www.scottsbarandgrill.com A great place with a reputation for having very good food. They have a straight 12 person sip-up bar. The tables a r granite with leather wrap around chairs. There are 2 pub height tables that each sit 10 people and you get to sit across from the person in close proximity. 13 different types of beer on tap and they are mostly local ones. For lunch I had the Blue Maytag Salad, which has lots of blue cheese crumbles, slivered almonds, it was very fresh and good! We had the French Onion soup with nice aged parmesan cheese. It was excellent as well! The kitchen is wide open so you can easily watch them cook. There exposed 6 X 6 beams through out. The other two thirds of the bar is for families. There is lots of parking n front and daily specials. I really like this place and the food is excellent!!

The Shed Pub is in the courtyard and seats about 20 people. There is a beautiful curved brick wood burning fireplace and is used. They have a wonderful selection of Whiskey here. I tried the Knappogue Castle 16 Irish Whiskey which was pretty good! We met a local couple who come here at least once a week. The courtyard has lots of tables and chairs and I am told it is packed in the summer time. In one of the other buildings is the Woodshop Pub .
The Woodshop Pub was actually the schools wood shop back in the day. There is a beautiful long 16 person sit-up bar, the wood in this is stunning. There are several quaint small booths running across from the bar. There are 2 full sized shuffleboards and 4 pool tables. They serve 13 types of their own beer that is brewed on premise. They also have a few guest taps to try. With a very large selection of Whiskey, Rum and Tequila you can find something you will like. The area in the picture above is adults only. Children can come in the other areas of the bar. Out side the front doors they have a covered wood burning fire pit complete with warm blankets if you need to cozy up. On one side of the pub is the Tavern on the Square and the Theatre which has a bar too is on the other side. We did not try these out, maybe next time. across one of the parking lots is the South Seas Pub in the building called the North Shore Lagoon.
When you enter the North Shore Lagoon they use what was the school swimming pool and have given it a Polynesian theme to it. Up stairs and over looking the pool is the South Seas Pub. Once again very well done, beautiful wood sip-up bar that holds 14 people. The tables again all have the beautiful wood tops. There are 5 booths running along facing the bar. Kids not allowed n this part. They do have an area for kids. Lots of bamboo is uses and gives it a great Polynesian feel. They have a killer Mai Tai!!
What a great complex, I look forward to coming in the summer and sitting in the court yard! Definite two thumbs up for this place!!
The Tavern on the Square, another great place. All of the booths are 4 person church pews. The bar is a rounded rectangle that seats 40 people. There is a nice fireplace at on end with nice comfortable chairs in front of it. For lunch most of us had the: Tavern Boilermaker, which is a toasted hoagie roll with garlic butter, hogshead onions, roast beef & Gruyere cheese served with a house made Terminator stout onion jus. This was a great sandwich, the bun, the beef the jus all awesome! The beer/ wine etc. is the same through out the complex. There is the shop which is attached to the Tavern and has a huge selection of items, \i got a double walled stainless steel 64 ounce growler painted in orange. They say it can keep beer for 7 days. That was a great gift to receive! Thanks!!!
