What Insiders Are Saying
If you’re needing a sports bar with a classy aesthetic and bar food your parents might want to eat, check out Quality Athletics in Pioneer Square.
The atmosphere was lively during a football playoff game, our server was great! We had a very old gift card that we were allowed to use still and I have food issues he gladly talked with the chef about, much appreciated! Food was good...steak sandwich could have used more steak for the price but the fried chicken sandwich was awesome. Thanks again!
Uncomfortable seats, super salty food and I love salt but this was way too much. Steak was not rare as I ordered it but medium-well. I would no go back.
We had a reservation, arrived on time, and ordered almost immediately. We waited nearly 45 minutes for our food while tables that arrived after us got their food, ate, paid their bills and left. No comments from the server at any point. When the food finally arrived, it still came in pieces around 10 minutes apart, so the first ones to get food had nearly cold food by the time the others had theirs. (There were 8 of us.) On the plus side, everyone liked their food and they gave us 25% off the bill for the wait, but I would still not recommend going unless you have plenty of time on your hands.
Quality Athletics is definitely a spot for watching a game as the TVs are very loud and make conversation difficult. The food is hit or miss. My husband's gnocchi was delicious but I couldn't even finish my fried chicken sandwich since the meat was so unappetizing. Also my fries didn't taste great.
The menu is great for a bar but the execution was hit and miss. Still, I love this place, always fun, drinks are 👍
Met a friend for lunch...both meals were EXCELLENT.
The good—food was fantastic. Small but good selection of beers and some great cocktails.
The bad—service was slow, but they were very busy just before a Mariners game. The noise in there made conversation at the table almost impossible.
Overall great, but be prepared to be patient before events at the sports fields.
We made reservations in advance of the first Pearl Jam Home Shows. The staff were prepared for the crowds and the service was excellent!!! The menu was changed so that many items were named after Pearl Jam songs. We had a great time and were able to relax even with all the madness around us.
They carded us and ask to open a tab even though we are over 50 and were there for dinner.
We were here for a special event last spring and had a great meal... thought it was nicer/friendlier.
Good pre-game place for dinner. Can't imagine going there for any other reason. Pretty limited menu. Food was average.
We checked out this place before the Mariner's game. The food was very creative, and lots of fun - not to mention delicious. The service was great, and the appetizer was awesome. I would be here before a game again next time I am in town. Great upscale sports bar!
Everything was fantastic...food, drink, atmosphere. Above all, the service rocked. Daryl and team behind the bar were awesome. Pre-game (Mariners/Redsox) crowd, and the team at QA didn’t miss a beat.
Great pre-game meal!! Tap system was down, but that didn’t affect our experience at all! Plenty of other drinks to choose from.
Service wasn't great, waited at least 10 mins between our orders being delivered to our table. Much too loud to have conversation around the table. If u r at Century link then it's close by otherwise I wouldn't make a special trip. Our food however was pretty good.
We came for a friends easter brunch before going to the mariners game. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and all shared, it worked out great and we enjoyed everything. :)
Food was excellent...a good spread for a sports bar! The brussels, broccoli, haloumi, pretzel we're delish! Atmosphere was awesome. Will be coming back!
Good was good-- salads were GREAT! Would be great for outdoor dining in the summer- nice fireplace.
The Tom Kha prawn soup rivals any I’ve ever had. I will have to branch out into other menu items but I’m obsessed! Fabulous staff!
Their website looks better than the real thing. Wine selection was not great. For a sports bar the beer selection was poor. Poor salad selection. Poor vegetarian options. The staff was fun and did a great job with what they had to work with. Probably won’t be going back.
We celebrated my son's 8th Birthday and had a wonderful experience. the Staff and food were great and my son loved the Sports theme so close to the stadiums. We came when there was no game or event, so it was relatively calm.
It was a great place not only to watch sport with friends also drink tasty beer
$16.00 for Tom Kaw soup.......holy crap and it wasn't that great.
$16.00 for nachos.......
$9.50 for a bloody mary that was so spicy my wife couldn't drink it
I was visiting for the east coast and found this place when browsing different Seattle food Instagram pages and this was a must try. Chicken and waffles were amazing and the beef nachos were delicious.
Amazing! Super great cocktails and amazing food!!
Terrible Terrible Terrible Terrible Terrible Terrible Terrible Terrible Terrible Terrible Terrible Terrible
Great food. Really inventive menu. It seems like a standard pub, but the food is really inventive and high end.
Originally had a table for 16, then more in our department RSVP'd Yes after the reservation was made. Quality Athletics immediately provided us with two tables of 10 and brought two more chairs to accommodate us. Greatly appreciated!
Good was great. Staff was minimal. Had to hunt down our waiter for a drink refi more than once. Ended up asking the bartender for our bill because we couldn’t find our waiter to ask them.
Fun place to watch the Seahawks! Our server was super friendly and accommodating. Noise level is high, but to be expected on a game night. Beware of swearing patrons though.
Had no record of our OpenTable reservation when we got there.
This restaurant must be for under-30s only. With the overpowering noise we could not carry on a conversation with our friends.
The food was okay at the price except that the portions were not competitive with, say, Seattle's Metropolitan Grill or or even Seattle's Queen Anne 5-Spot for 30% to 40% greater portions at similar price and quality.
Burgers cold and over cooked.
Drink service was painfully slow... took over 20 minutes to get drinks after server took order. This happen every time we ordered. I know it was a busy night, but our server just seemed way over his head. We could see drinks ready to be picked up at bar and server was no where to be seen. At one point I just went up to bar myself. Food came out fast. Been here before for big events, and service was always fine.
Great burger! Friendly service.
Good place to go before a Mariners game. Energetic atmosphere so be ready for some noise on game day.
Pre mariners game meal.
Horrible service. Left after waiting for ten minutes for somebody to come to our table. The tables around us weren't getting any attention either. It seemed like they don't care.
This place was amazing! So thankful for their commitment to open table and their reservations!! My entire party was running about 30 minutes late. The restaurant called me and asked if I still needed the reservation, and held it for me when I told me the situation! Best service, totally made the night!! Thank you
Excellent staff and food on a busy game day. Food was on time, front desk made adjustment for our arrival and server was prompt and friendly.
Service was absolutely horrible both times and I will never recommend this restaurant to anyone.
