Best Bar in town

Okay, in the name of full disclosure I have to admit that I'm pretty biased. I have been coming to the People's happy hour once a week for almost 5 years now, and know the awesome staff well enough to just tip my head or flare a nostril from across the room and I'll receive what I want from the beer and food menus. They take care of their regulars, even keeping a a special table set aside for them, but new patrons shouldn't be timid - everybody is friendly and upfront. The People's does everything a good bar should do - focus on great beer, keep prices low, have a line-up of well constructed bar food, and keep a laid-back unpretentious atmosphere.

Never going again-

I'm never going to this bar again. My first time ""dining"" there was my last. The owner of this establishment should screen the servers much more carefully. Our server grudgingly brought us drinks, food, and water.

At the end of our night, we asked to split the check (a normal request). We handed the server four credit cards and asked it to be split four equal parts... not an uncommon request.

When we were given our cards back, the waiter said, ""Next time, swing by an ATM on the way.""

Bizarre... anyone who's worked as a server before knows this is unacceptable.

Love Peoples

Generous happy hour with great cheap food. Nice BLT and the veggie burger is the best in town. I eat it and I'm a carnivore. Great kraut. Great german and local beer. Try the Kolsch and Spaten.
And Sabrina rocks!

I love the People's Pub

I love the People's Pub. It has great fish and chips and bratwurst. It is one of the few places you can get german style potato salad with your brat. The service is always frienldy and fast. The best part about it is that you can get food even into the wee hours.

drink the beer, skip the food

the review from 5/30/07 says it all: it MAY have been good, but not now. We went in on a Tues, early evening, looking forward to some great German food. Still looking. My pork cutlet was so dry, I had to choke it down with the beer; I finally gave up and left half of it. The red cabbage side was just that : red cabbage, no seasonings that I could taste. My husband's fish and chips were so dark brown, they looked burnt; he left most of his, too. If people reviewing this site really believe this is how German food tastes, I hope they try it somewhere else for comparison.

Can't beat $2.50 jager/schnapps on Sat nights.

My friends and I discovered this hole in the wall about 6 months ago and have been regulars on the weekends ever since. $2.50 jager/schnapps on a Saturday night? Yes please. The service can be a bit flaky but they make up for it in friendly attitude and freebies. There is also a collection of board games to play, which only become more fun as the night goes on. This is a great place for a cheap drink and a laid-back atmosphere on the weekends

Great food and location

Glad to see this place recently got named one of the top ethnic restaurants in the city by Seattle Metropolitan Magazine. I was there last night after a show down the street and noticed they added some new items to the menu as well that I can't wait to try!

User review by fiat

Perhaps this place made an effort to offer food that was meant for human consumption when it opened but those days are long past. What tries to pass for schnitzel would be more inconspicuous nailed to the bottom of a boot. The ""german"" potato salad was a hard pile of undercooked potatoes tossed with (are you ready for this?) MUSTARD!

Go for the beer and stay far, far away from the food. There are other german pubs in the city that at least try to offer german food.

Great People!!

Last Monday night we had my brother's 30th birthday party here. It was a very large party and they went out of their way to accomodate us. They even gave us some birthday candles when we forgot to bring our own!.....The staff there is a class act and I will forever be a loyal patron of theirs!

Great brats in Ballard

When you are craving brats or german sausage, this is the place to go. The brats are always dellicious, as are the sausage and cheese plate, the fries (huge plate- split them with a friend) and the fried pickle. The beer selection is also quite varied and large. The only drawback is that the bar is very stale-smoky and could use some ventilation.
