Sluggers is the place to go for drinks if youre a power drinker lookin for a $5 tall boy to pound down. This place use to be great but its alllllll down hill now. Clearly ownership doesnt care about food quality either. Tonight we had a salad, a burge, some pickle chips, and 2 drinks and it was $50. Mcdonalds has better food. You can't tell the difference between staff and customers...my server said she was getting my drink...I look down the railing and shes hugging customers and talking to people. 20 min later I get my drink and its not even what I ordered. The floors are dirty...bathrooms are gross, and they should really consider some remodel work. This place hasn't changed in years.

I'm not picky....I know nothing is perfect, but the past few visits here have been just like this. Not going to return.

This place is as good as it gets.

It's part of my Seahawk pre-game ritual and if i didn't have season tickets I'd park myself here all day to watch all of the Sunday NFL games!

The atmosphere on game day is fantastic, the service is superb, the memorabilia all around you is wonderful as well!

For 1pm game days during the NFL season, you need to be inside by 8:30am if you care to find a seat---that fact alone tells you as much as you need to know....it's that popular and that good! That said, you don't need a seat to enjoy Sluggers, it just makes a 5 hour stay easier on your behind. The key is to be there, the atmosphere is what makes Sluggers so much more than just another sports bar. Whether your sitting or standing---who really cares---just make sure you're there. To be honest, 3 hours later, you won't even know (nor care) if you're sitting or standing.

The staff is great (and easy on the eyes for both genders), the beers and other assorted bevvies are real nice, the food is well priced and tasty and with too many tv's to count, it's simply the ideal place (heck the only place) anybody should consider when watching the NFLon a routine busy Sunday!

Kudos to the owners, the staff and the Seattle home town clientelle who have made Sluggers THE place to be on game day or any other day for that matter.

One more note, you'll stand out like your weird uncle Melvin if you don't show up wearing your favorite Seahawk or Mariner jersey, t-shirt or sweatshirt...and be prepared to be peppered with an array of rather loud (yet friendly) BOO's if you dare show up in the opposing teams uni's---just as it should be!

Go Seahawks!!!!
