Northlake Tavern and Pizza House,  660 N.E. Northlake Way, Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. Kinds of just under the I 5 and west of the University Bridge.  www.northlaketavern.com  They have been round since 1954 and and had to move to the present location in 1958 when the Interstate 5 was being built  and they were in the way. You have to be 21 years of age or older no kids. I have to say this place is fantastic!  11 person sit-up bar with great high back chairs.  There are 6 booths of 4 on the right as you enter and the rest of the tables re covered n red and white plastic tablecloths. Good selection of beer on tap and limited wine selection but I made do! This place is know for the best pizza round any where!  It did not disappoint!  The pizza is amazing:  The large 14 inch pizza (toppings are 79% of the weight)  total weight 7 pounds of 112 oz, Crust is 23 oz and toppings are 89 oz.  Takes a while to get s the take a while too cook, but worth we wait, crispy crust and amazing!!  Everything is fresh and high quality!  It is not if I will be back but when and how soon.   If you like cool taverns and absolutely amazing pizza you have to come here!  You can't be around since 1954 with out making such fantastic pizza!!!

Galway Bay Irish Restaurant & Pub (Ocean Shores, Washington, U.S.A.)


Galway Bay Irish Restaurant & Pub, 880 Point Brown Avenue N/E, Ocean Shores, Washington,  U.S.A.   What a great find! This is a very Irish feeling pub if you know what I mean!  Tons of character. It was recommend to us by  very nice lady at a local kite shop  (she also recommended the pizza). It has a beautiful 8 person curved dark wood sit-up bar.  They have  very good selection of Whiskey.  There are 12 different types of beer on tap.  Lots of locals come here. They have a couple of tables of 4 that on one side they have church pews. You have to be 21 years old to come in to the pub.  I did not go to the restaurant side at all. To the left of the bar,as seen in the bottom photo, there is a big glass of Guinness beer, this is the door out to the patio and smoking area.  It doesn't look like a until you see some one use it!  Very cool!  They have live music in the evenings.  Servers and there is quite few are very polite and look after you very well. To the left of the bar is the tasting room which is very cozy with leather chairs and  walk in humidor. There are no TV's in the pub, but they have a separate games room which has  TV, pool table, shuffleboard and 2 dart boards. They have a good menu with good Irish pub fare.  I had the pizza which was thin crust and very good! There is also a very large gift store! I really loved this place and give it 2 thumbs up and would love to come back again!!

Mill 109 Restaurant & Pub (Seabrook, Washington, U.S.A.)


Mill 109 Restaurant & Pub 5 W Myrtle Lane, Seabrook, Washington, U.S.A. this place is located town started in 2004 and only has 35 permanent residences all of the other really  cool houses are rentals.  You have to check it out!  Tiny little restaurant and pub, with a small 6 person bar.  They have 5 different types of beer on tap.  We were there for lunch on a Friday, and it was quite busy, quite  few kids were there.  Why don't parents look after their kids.  They were running around, yelling, screaming and goofing off and not one parent said a thing, very annoying.  The walls have lots of old photos from the 1920's and earlier on them, from around the area.  There is a wrap around patio in front and around one side.  The food was very good here!  I had the Fish and chips which came with 3 pieces of panco style coating with battered fries.  The fish was very good as were the fries.  My lunch partner had the Ruben on marble rye, with a Caesar salad.  Both were very good.  I really enjoyed trying the Caesar salad.  2 thumbs up on the food!!

There are 8 different types of beer on tap. The walls are covered with mirror beer signs of all types.  There is a veranda as you walk up the steps to the pub.  I did not try the foods here so I can't comment on that. Parking in front as well as out back.  There is one pool table.  Nothing outstanding, people were nice and the service was good.
