North City Lounge and Grill (Shoreline, Washington, U.S.A.)

North City Lounge and Grill,  17554-15 Avenue NE, Shoreline, Washington, U.S.A..  This place has a lot of interesting history.  Built in 1927  as a grocery store/ gas station and is the oldest building in continuous use in Shoreline.  Directory listing shows in 1932 as Tave's Motor Service. At one time around 1945 the building was known as the 177th Street Tavern.  The first time it was shown as the North City Tavern is in the 1947 street directory.  From 1935 to 1944 records are silent as to the use of the building but likely became a tavern at the end of Prohibition in 1933.  How cool it that!  It is great that it has lasted and still going.  The present owner has had it for 28 years and there has been pressure for him to put it on the historic registry, but if he does that the rules are very strict as to what he can and can't do with it. So for now not putting n the registry. 9 different types of beer on tap, and full selection of hard stuff.  The menu is small: pizza $7, chicken wings $4, chicken nuggets $3, Taquito (6) $3.00, French fries $2, Tater Tots  $2 and Corndog $1. They have a warm nut bar which you never see any more. A rectangular bar is the focal point and is in the middle, seating about 30 people.  A pint of Mac and Jack beer and a glass of Chardonnay wine is $8.  Can't beat that!  Lots of locals come hear, and the bartender knows most of them. The bartenders are great and friendly! Large selection of pull tabs.  They also have a pool table and 9 TV'S through out.  It is small yet cozy in here.  Parking lot out back. I will come back for sure....wait I did come back and will come again!!

Lodge Sports Grill Mill Creek (Mill Creek, Wa. USA)

Lodge Sports Grille Mill Creek, 15117 Main Street, Mill Creek, Washington, U.S.A. in the mill Creek Town Center. Another one of the lodge bars that re beautifully decorated in side. This one also has a stunning 25 person sit-up bar made of a long split log and finished perfectly. They have 47 different types of beer on tap an one root beer on tap.  There re 8 pub high tables that seat 6, 6 tables of 4 and 6 tables for 2. All done with the same beautiful wood.  11 large screen TV's through out.  This place also has 3 large TV style menu boards for all of the beer that they have on tap, great idea! for lunch we started with the deep fried dill pickles with a Chipolte dipping sauce.  Mmmm good!  For the main course my dinning partner had the Brussels Sprout Salad:  "Grilled chicken with Brussel sprouts, spring salad mix,candied pecans, gorgonzola cheese, dried cranberries and red onions tossed in a Georgetown Lucille IPA mustard vinaigrette." Very good indeed.  I had the "Three Cheese Macaroni, :House made macaroni and cheese with parmesan, monterrey jack and cheddar cheeses, topped with fresh chopped bacon and parmesan.  Mine was very god but not warm enough this time.  Enjoyed it hear and love going to the Lodges!!!

Went here January 2018, the menu has changed slightly, and I was advised that a new owner bought all 7 locations.  Everything is still the same.
