Elephant & Castle is a British-inspired pub where we encourage rowdy fun with your best mates. Here, you can always catch the match (because Football Lives Here) and have a nice hearty meal. Our menu is a Brit-"ish" invasion of flavour, yet warm and inviting. The Union Jack behind the bar might be faded, but the mood here is always vibrant. So come on in, and we'll greet you with a cool pint and tasty food.

    Server was great, as was the atmosphere. As far as traditional British food, it needs a wee bit of help.

    We booked our reservations for our last night in Seattle, where we were attending a professional meeting. All we wanted was a relatively straightforward meal for an early evening simply because we were leaving quite early the morning after. Since my husband and I have both lived in the UK, we're very familiar with British fare. Elephant and Castle did not disappoint: This was the best fish and chips we've had on this side of the Atlantic. We finished our meal with sticky toffee puddings to die for. Although we're also a bit phobic about sport bars and pubs, the ambiance was relatively moderate and the noise level tolerable. The service was excellent. Elephant and Castle is now on our permanent list of recommended places and it will definitely be a go-to place whenever we're next in Seattle.

    On our way to Paramount Theater from the Ferry. Cute ambiance. Great service. Food was fair. My husband's French onion soup was hot and tasty. My bangers and mash was barely tepid. A bit disappointed in the food.

    The food here was excellent. The fish and chips were so flaky and fresh. My sister had ordered a flatbread that ended up not being to her liking but management removed it from the bill and she ordered chicken sliders that were awesome. This restaurant definitely needs to be a stop if you’re in Seattle

    Had a very good dinner at E&C before a show at the Paramount Theater. Were a little early due to our concerns over traffic on the same night as a Husky football game, Kraken, and Mariners last playoff game. No problems. Had the sausage roll appetizer, butter chicken and ceasar salad. Very good service!

    Our waiter super nice but was very hard to come by. Said he couldn’t see us from the rest of his section, which isn’t a valid excuse for just leaving us out to dry. We had to ask the hostess to find him so we could pay. I only had a house salad which seemed a bit gone-off. Everyone else enjoyed their food and the place looked cool.

    Fish was tough. Fried pickles and pretzel bites were good. There was bitter flavor to everything. Not sure if it was the fry oil or the seasonings. Stick with the appetizers…

    Super cute pub, clean, great staff and quick service. Food was terrific, highly recommend the fried pickles. Dropped 1 overall star, just because we were told they didn’t have 3 different things we asked for that were on the menu, which was a bit odd.

    Food took over 1.5 hours to arrive after order. The wait staff did provide an update telling us the kitchen was behind. However, no effort to make up for the significant wait, no manager apology nothing. A simple acknowledgment of the inconvenience would go a long way.

    While this place looks great with an English pub atmosphere, the management should improve their guest capacity vs their kitchen workforce ratio. We went to E&C before the 5th Ave Theater show and had to swallow our meal in 10min since completion of our order took 50 min. We would leave more money in this establishment (had to skip deserts) if we would get our main meals in a timely fashion.

    We waited quite a while to get seated although we had reservations, then the hostess didn't offer us "real" menus (as opposed to using the QR code), although they had them. The waiter showed up eventually and also didn't have menus - we requested them from him, but we had to go retrieve some on our own from the hostess desk 5 minutes later because the waiter was taking forever to return with them. We ordered very promptly after we got real menus, but the food took 40 minutes and we had to gulp a few bites and then box it up to get to ACT Theater in time. And we were seated down in the basement pool room - rather dull atmosphere, but quiet at least. My Wee Pie Flight was disappointing - not as good as the food I've gotten in the past. Disappointing experience overall.

    A vibrant pub atmosphere with a typical pub style menu and friendly waitstaff. The Shepherd's Pie is delicious, as are the meat pies made with a flakey pastry crust. This was our first visit, and we will definitely return.

    We were seated right away when we arrived then service went down hill from there. We ordered an appetizer (chips and dip) them shortly after ordered our entrees. Up to 30 minutes passed after we ordered our appetizer and had not gotten it yet; the waiter told us that the kitchen was still working on it. We then waited another 10-15 minutes for the appetizer to arrive then 5 minutes later the entrees came out and were all cold. Neither manager nor wait staff were able to provide an explanation, reasoning or apology

    My wife & I had dinner here prior to a show at the 5th Avenue. We arrived just before 6pm so we caught the tail end of the happy hour crowd. They were annoyingly loud, but left shortly after we arrived and the noise level dropped significantly. My wife ordered the noble salad with chicken and I had fish and chips. We both enjoyed our meals very much. The piece of fish I was served was huge and chips were very good. I didn't particularly care for the cole slaw and, even though E&C is trying to recreate a British pub experience, there were no peas (which was fine). The service was a tad slow, but not reduce the tip slow. It worked out fine as we arrived at the theater in plenty of time. I just wish the play had been as good as my meal.

    We went to the Elephant & Castle before a play at the Paramount Theater. It was in a good location, close to our parking spot and to the theater. We were greeted pleasantly and shown to our table by the greeter. Our server was very efficient and our orders were out within a reasonable time. My wife had the fish and chips and it was a very generous portion. I had the chicken strips and it was also a generous portion. The prices were reasonable for what we got. We would definitely return if we were in the area.
