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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

A slow Tuesday night, probably 15 people in the place. Service was good at first, drinks came fast, ordered appetizers waiting for our party to arrive. Food was less than expected, burgers and chicken sandwich were forgettable. Service at the end of the meal was non existent. there were 3 servers all working to clear other tables and close up patio, waited for at least 15 minutes to get our check. Would not recommend this place...........

How can you have a place that holds so many people and have only 4 toilets for everyone? And one didn't flush properly! I don't want to stand in line, crammed into a hallway, men and women, waiting for a bathroom. (First world problem)
Way too loud. Food...m'eh...adequate at best.
