Food and drinks were great. Service was phenomenal. It’s a bit pricey though.

There aren't many vegetation options so I really appreciated them making me a vegetarian burger, sadly I hate the mushy house made burgers that seem to be the trend everywhere.

I did not like my chicken sandwich, because it had so much breading and was not made with chicken breast. The fries were good, the bun was good, the flavors worked, but the main ingredient fell short for me.

Food and service was good but the background music, really? Acid rock and hard, driving blues does not make the dining experience very pleasant. Change that and the experience would be tons better.

Quinn’s is my absolute favorite pub in the city- food is always high quality and delicious. We went this year for my birthday, and the waitress was even sweet enough to put a candle in the dessert we ordered. Love Quinn’s! The wild boar sloppy joe is a must-try.

We went to Quinn's on NYE, and the atmosphere was terrific as always. The service is always an easy going professionalism, the lighting good, and the crowd lively without being too intrusive. The food is reliably good to great, the ingredients well chosen, and there is excellence to be found, this time in the perfectly cooked octopus, the romanesco salad that was so bright with flavor, and the incredible beef cheek that was an incredible portion that they could have charged ten dollars more for and we would have still considered it a bargain, as it was savory and so tender that it pulled apart with a fork, on top of a perfectly grilled polenta cake. The cocktail menu is one of the more fun one's to explore on The Hill. Quinn's is still a favorite after all of these years.

Nice dining space and good service. But
Dead on a Saturday night. The place across the street was busy. I think the difference is the menu at Quinn’s. The gastro pub menu needs a makeover. Not many appealing selections. Our food was so-so.

It was my birthday and I rallied the girls together to go eat here before we caught the show “Jingle All The Gay” at Century Ballroom. The ambience is super cozy and happy. It was delightfully boisterous inside and our waitress was very attentive. I stuck with a classic cheeseburger and I couldn’t have been happier. I’d go back again.

I think this is one of the most underrated restaurants in Capitol Hill. It was one of the first restaurants I ate at when I visited this City. And I finally made my way back 6 months after moving to Capitol Hill and their food is great. Simple, comfort good but made the way a real cooking crew makes food. Burger is full of flavor. You ask for medium rare and you get medium rare. Their bone marrow was to die for. Their steak was cooked to order medium rare soft and juicy. Their old fashions are amazing and cheaper than some of the neighboring bars that "specialize" in bourbon. They use a single square or circular ice cube. Their Manhattans are also very delicious and not over baring but smooth. This was my favorite restaurant 6 years ago and once again, its my favorite restaurant in Capitol Hill after eating at all of the usual suspects!

Quinns used to have a great burger. I thought it was the best burger in Seattle - very simple and well executed. On top of that, they had great fries and a wonderful beer menu - all the things to make a great burger experience. It had been awhile since we had been to Quinn's and, while surprised that we were able to grab a table at 830p on Saturday, was excited to order a burger. Unfortunately, it took us 40 minutes to get our appetizers and, about 2 minutes after they arrived, the main dishes arrived too. (our server apologized and ended up comp-ing the appetizers - very nice of them!) The burger arrived without the advertised bacon and the fries were not so great. The meat was cooked well, the bun fresh (potato roll, though, the old one had brioche), the bacon was missing. Quinn's, bring back the classic burger!

Honestly, Quinn's has been one of our favorite places for years. But over the last year I've noticed a decline in quality. The Bone Marrow (one of their great dishes) was underwhelming - the quantity and quality of the dish used to be much better. The prices are higher (probably to match the competition) but quality has gone down. It's just too bad. Will need to find a new go-to when we visit Seattle.

The food was over priced and not very good. Both my steak and lamb were so rare it was cold and couldn’t chew them they brought it back out and because it was the same meat cooked again it was tough. Not a fine dining but fine dining prices. It was my birthday so it was disappointing but at least they took a couple things off the bill since they weren’t eatable. The only thing that was good was the fish and chips and no one else like their meal. Server was a nice guy but overwhelmed with tables.

The overall experience was fantastic. The ambiance was comfortable and the pub scenery had a welcoming attitude. The waitress was friendly and accommodating. I had steak frites, and the food was delicious. My only real complaints were that the noise level was too loud. I had to shout at people next to me and strain my ears to hear them. That and the area around the front door smelled like a used bathroom stall. But aside from that, I had a great time here. I would definitely come back and/or recommend it to people.

We had a nice dinner, but the whole restaurant smelled like a urinal. I almost pulled our party out of there but we stuck it out. I don't know if it always smells this way, but it was very distracting. Everything else was good.

Horrible smell when we walked in. Like a barn or toilet. Didn’t abate when moving past the door but we eventually got used to it.

Scallops and carrots were great. Burger was pretty good but had no greens of any kind - fell sort of flat for a $20 burger.

Everything here was just okay. The service was okay, even through they weren’t busy for a nice Saturday night (lots of empty tables and only 2 people at the bar). The cocktails were nothing to write home about. A good portion of our food was unexpectedly “charred,” which is not my forte. Definitely not worth the $153 we spent on 3 cocktails, ½ dozen oysters, octopus salad, a sloppy joe, and short rib.

The food is delicious, especially their burger and fries. Quinn's is a great location if you are going to Neumos or Barboza. Quinn's is also fun if you like to "people watch" as both floors of the restaurant have nice lighting and views of Capital Hill life at Pike and 10th. However, when one of our party tried to get a drink at the bar, they were questioned as to whether they were eating at the restaurant. It is confusing that a reatai with a BAR seemed bothered by someone ordering at the bar.
