Convenient to events in the area. Short menu the night we were there. Plenty to drink. It was a warm night and the restaurant was unbearably hot with no AC or fans. Burger was good. Noise level is extremely high. Despite that the place was packed.

We wanted a fun and tasty dinner and a few beers before the Mariners game. It was perfect! We parked nearby and had a great meal, wonderful waitress and delicious food! The service was prompt and we were so happy to be able to have reservations before a game. Great place to dine with anyone for any reason!

Lively, terrific place to watch a game. Good, not overwhelming selection of beverages. Food was a step more creative than usual sports bar food, which had mixed results. Elote was yummy, Korean beef in the rice bowl was dry, loaded fries were OVERloaded. Service was friendly but took a long time, probably because the timing of the crowds went with the game schedule. It would seem that sports bars could make a game day menu of easily produced, popular items that would sell well to people who plan to be there for a game for 2+ hours.

I'd definitely come back to watch another big game there. We had a great time.

I am not a stranger to Quality Athletics. If someone asks me to lunch in Pioneer Square, it is my first choice. It's not so much the location or atmosphere (both are great). It's the eclectic menu and top-notch food that keeps me coming back. It's hard to describe. It's like bar-fusion or bar food on steroids. They take what could be lackluster bar food and ratchet it up a notch. The result is satisfying (but rich) starters and entrees.

Food was good, but service was a bit lacking. It was busy, but it seemed other tables were getting much quicker service.

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 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.

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.
