New name, same old stuff. Crusty, rude bartender, (the old woman with the accent is just awful every time I've been there. She hates her job, and her customers.) Drinks are overpriced and low quality, food is standard pub fare, though, I'll credit the cook with doing the best possible job with what's available in the kitchen. Karaoke nights are too loud and obnoxious, and, my god, this place leaves much to be desired in the way of its appearance; depressing blue-grey walls meet (still) remnants of a former ship-themed place, and old-timey something-or-other. The restrooms are totally gross. There aren't many fantastic places in Lynnwood, but, this place is certainly at the very bottom of the list. (First class disaster!)
They had a DJ playing music at 90db. No one was dancing. Just people drinking and talking. Even though we were sitting near the back of the room the music was so loud you had to shout at the person you were talking to. I asked both the bartender and the DJ 3 times if they could lower the volume a little which they did for about 30 seconds and then promptly turned it back up again after I walked away. I walked around the room and asked about 10 customers what they thought about the music volume and 5 of them said it was too loud. I shared this info with the DJ and the bartender who both totally ignored it. I am a DJ myself with 25 years experience and I DJ every Friday until 11:00pm at a ballroom 2 blocks away from this bar. I enjoy having some food and drinks after my gig but will NEVER return to this bar! Very poor management.
Used to hang out here in 04-05 when the decor was somewhat bland compared to now. Now it is updated, cleaner look and a fireplace with a lounge! Way cool. The owner Randy and his staff have been professional and friendly as well as wanting to help. The 9ft tables are clean and the fabric isn't torn. The smaller tables are a bit used, but still good.. I'm used to it being on an APA league. The food is decent and a bit pricey. But the drinks are what I like the best. No watered down taste and just right.Plenty of room to throw a birthday party or whatever gathering you wish. Glad to see it is still around and continuing to progress.Definitely a must visit place for me when I visit from CA, and bring my friends and family with me.
