Noticed the Thirsty Fish on Holman Road in Northwest Seattle on my way home one day. I did not have a lot of time that day, so I just ordered a glass of wine and some Chicken Wings...and wow! Loved the Chicken Wings especially! Went back when I had more time and more of the same, great service, friendly staff,... More

A cozy place for a late breakfast. A must to try is the garden scramble with avocado. Tried it before and it still is great. We also had the pancakes, BLT and chicken steak. Everything really good and super service. Why go anywhere else?

This is a nice place with a great staff and I recommend giving it a try. It is somewhat on the smallish side interior-wise but they make up for that with attention to service and a tasty and well made meal. The menu is pub style food but it is well made and uses good fresh ingredients.the fries were great... More

Rainy Saturday, and met a friend at "The Fish". She had the fish and chips, I had the steak salad. My steak was cooked to absolute perfection!! Drinks were never empty and Nick handled the entire bar and floor with speed, positive energy and a smile.

Friends and I have struggled in recent months to find some good Saturday breakfast places in North Seattle area. We discovered the Thirsty Fish on Holman Road. Doesn't open until 10 am which fits our schedule. It is a pub popular among locals in that part of town. A nice deck when weather is fine. Great service. Thirsty Fish has... More

While visiting relatives in Seattle I wanted some time off and a place to have a bite and a beer. I was in the Ballard neighborhood and chanced on The Thirsty Fish. Sometimes "just a neighborhood bar" is a great thing. The Thirsty Fish is a nice open space with a few TVs and a pool table. On the two... More

Whatever you do, have the waffle flies at The Thirsty Fish! The fish'wich sandwich is pretty incredibly awesome, and the pizzas are just beyond comparison with anywhere else outside of Italy (just astonishing quality), and the beer selection is delightful as well. Just a neighborhood place, but what a neighborhood place! This is a place you must try out if... More
