The Menu & theme seemed really interesting, however the service & food was poor. 1 Kids Menu burger came rare, with blood on the bun. Being Restaurant Week, we were told orders could not be placed from both the Specialty Menu & Regular Menu as it may confuse the kitchen- the place was almost empty so after begging for a Pretzel for my daughter, it came as a microwaved rock of bread for $8. We would have been grateful for this 'favor' had the server not display such a bad attitude about it. All in all, left without having a satisfying family meal, and wasted money. Didn't want more attitude during our night out from the server, so chose not to return food back.
We love love love this place! The food is always amazing and the cars added a unique experience. It is always super loud, but it is always a lovely time.
Loved that we could get a large group in with a reservation the night before. Really hidden gem for the area but a fun mix to see some cool cars and have some interesting bites! The corn is a must, Brussels were pretty great too! We loved all the apps and would consider just doing a bunch of those and sharing in place of everyone getting meals.
My friend's first visit but I come back often. Derby is a real gem in the heart of industrial Seattle and the food and service never disappoints. The wait staff are knowledgeable and make great suggestions and the drinks are top notch!
Decent place to eat if you are in the SoDo area. A little pricey for what you get, but the sandwiches are good. I wouldn't make it a destination for anything but lunch and even then you have to like looking at the cars!
Fun place. We ate at Derby previous to a movie premiere at The Shop. The Mezcal cocktail was amazing! I ordered fries and wings. Because the wings had the drum and wing attached they were a little too messy for my likings but the flavor was spot on.
Loved the place but the service was very slow. Had to ask for things multiple times. Someone that seemed to be the owner was very nice and attentive. Really fun atmosphere for those that enjoy cars. Great for kids as well.
Fun place. I took my two college kids that are home from visiting and they loved it. Food was great and they especially loved being able to go out to the garage and see the cars after dinner!
Great fun at this restaurant that is surrounded by an auto garage and storage business. Big glass windows in the restaurant provide views of dozens of cars of all kinds stored in the garage.
We were there for Sunday brunch. Brunch prices were very reasonable. The reuben benne was great; the chicken fried steak no so much. Very generous pours on the sparkling wine.
As with many Seattle restaurants these days there was a "service charge" added to the bill ostensibly to pay the kitchen crew. I find this practice annoying, especially at a restaurant with such a reasonably priced menu to begin with. Just raise the menu prices by the amount of the service charge and give that to the kitchen crew.
That said, this is a fun place to go and I commend it.
My teammates had our Xmas lunch here and for most it was their first experience. Everyone walked away full of compliments!! I’d been here a few times before and they food is always good. It was noise than usual since multiple large groups seemed to be there but the service was excellent!! Well done, Derby and thank you!!
Early dinner after a meeting downtown. Parking a little on the difficult side despite having a fairly large, dedicated lot—most likely due to Happy Hour arrival time.
Staff was pleasant and helpful, food was outstanding. Restaurant overall was exceptionally noisy (again, Happy Hour) and the acoustics do nothing to soften the noise.
Interesting concept with restaurant inside The Shop...we were fortunate enough to be seated by a window that gave us a view of a number of exotic cars.
Would definitely go again.
Food = good. Service = VERY SLOW. Irritation = We ordered Cadillac Margaritas--they were $18 each--we found out when we the bill arrived. They explained that they make Cadillacs with "top shelf" tequila and Gran Marnier. No other place in town does that. A Cad is a regular rita with a float of Gran Marnier. What a rip-off. Will not go there again.
Now that the automatic 20% tip is out the door and the servers actually have to work for the tips, the service has greatly improved!
Breakfast poutine is amazing! Great brunch spot
Wow, the food there is soooo good! Everyone talks about the bacon but the brussel sprouts and drinks were blew my mind! We stopped in before a game which was awesome because we parked in their lot for free (which they let us do since we ate there) and walked to the stadium. This place is a real hidden jem and my boyfriend was going crazy over the cars so we took the tour. It was $10 a person but they said on Monday it's free.
This place rocks! Absolutely fabulous space, amazing old vintage cars coupled with awesome food and service.
Sadly, we thought this was an Ethan Stowell restaurant. Maybe it was at some point, but no longer.
The potatoes seemed like they were from a frozen bag. The bacon was really thick and not edible. Didn't get the toast until I asked. And we had to ask for salt and pepper and all the table goodies.
The cars look cool though!
Fun evening before a concert at WAMU Theatre. Our Server was great, the food was delicious and the ambiance was fun and relaxed!
Great concept and so fun for everyone! The idea of this place is genius! My husband can’t get enough of it! The decor is great and very men club feel. The car experience is over the top. You see everything there that’s for sure and they have great events too you can attend for car lovers! The staff was so friendly and loved talking about everything. The food menu is amazing and oh so delicious! Really great! As for cocktails.... OMG amazing! They have the most creative drinks and can craft anything you want. They love the challenge and are great at it.
If you want something different and to impress friends go here!!!!
Loved the location. Great menu. Food was only OK. Staff was awesome-friendly, kind, fun. Will come back for lunch or dinner, but probably not for breakfast.
Cool cars. Great drinks. Was quiet, not busy.
The portion size of the bacon on the bad-add bene compared to last time we dined there was really sad.
Such a cool setting, for car fanatics and novices alike. And the food is awesome! Upscale comfort food is the perfect complement to the unique ambiance. 5 stars!
