Permanently Closed - Spur Gastropub


An intimate urban pub in Belltown. Plates to share. Cocktails to entice. Seasonally curated menu with Chef's tastings, & exclusive tasting menus crafted for Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve.

Chefs Brian McCracken and Dana Tough opened Spur in Seattle’s Belltown in 2008 and it’s been recognized by Food & Wine magazine as one of the country’s top restaurants. Acknowledged for turning out some of the best dishes and cocktails in town by local media, the Chefs were selected as "Rising Star Chefs" nationally by the industry insider magazine StarChefs. In 2015 Chef Jeff Vance and bar manager Seth Sempere earned "Rising Star" status as well. In addition to earning the attention of Wine & Spirits magazine, their cocktails have made Spur one of Seattle’s top 10 bars.

Found this place our last night in town. The bartender was attentive and very gracious. The food was exceptional - we had the specials ( tagliatelle for me and duck for my husband ) and very good smokey mescal cocktails. It's a beautiful space with a lovely staff and very good food.

as a gastropub, one expects something more of a casual food & presentation. I was pleasantly surprised to have experienced highly creative, excellently plated and tasty food creations, far exceeding my expectations. The service was professional, knowledgable, prompt and friendly. What else can I ask for? Well... cocktails of course, which were consistent with the rest of the experience! Creative, tasty, well presented ! Under promised, over delivered! Well done!

The food is superb but I miss the lamb tartare, which must have been seasonal last time I was in Seattle. They do proper cocktails with proper ice and glassware, which make all the difference. Portions are small but meant to share so I order one extra plate just in case.

The server was lovely and knew the details of each dish quite well. The food not only tasted delicious but we're visual works of art too (almost to pretty to eat).

The two of us chose the tasting menu and wine pairings, choosing to take both options so we were able to try everything. Told our server to go slow, and she did! Everything tasted great, and pairings went well. Noise level increased as the night went in, but never too loud.

We had a wonderful Friday night dinner at Spur. Our appetizer and entrees were superb - both tasty and creative. We will be back. However, we won't be ordering dessert again. Like so many restaurants nowadays, they left a bad taste in our mouths, literally and figuratively. Despite this flaw, Spur is still a Belltown gem. Recommended.

Was looking for a foodie friendly dinner without fine dining price tags - sure it's not cheap, but the food was just fantastic. Everything hit the mark. Wholesome with well balanced flavours, both classics (beef burger: best I've ever had!) and some more adventurous combinations (lavender and fois gras milkshake? Delicious if uber rich) all worked. It's share plate style, though we picked our own mains. Great cocktails too. Would definitely come back when in town next.

For the last couple of years (since Crush closed) Spur has been my favorite restaurant in Seattle. There is no better place to go for cocktails. The food is perfectly done and is an experience without being pretentious. The staff are good or great. The ambiance is slightly antiseptic but in a way that really appeals to me. The music and art are good. It's not too loud but you can carry on a conversation without thinking you are being listened to. The prices are reasonable for what you get. I had the most perfectly cooked duck breast and the sweet potato gnudi was awesome. The tasting menu is a good way to go, and you can make minor substitutions. This is where I would take out of town foodies to show off Seattle cuisine.

We had a really nice time. Our food was really good as were our cocktails and the service was good.

Two complaints though; we sat at one of the long tall tables and my wife shared that the chairs were just really uncomfortable. Would have been better if they had backs instead of just being stools. Lastly, we ordered coffee at the end of dinner and it was not hot. Pretty warm but not hot.

Definitely stop by and try to get a table if possible for the most comfortable option. Really nice atmosphere and delicious food and drinks.

Both the food and cocktails were interesting flavors that I haven't really seen around Seattle. While everything tasted fine, the flavors don't really come together for me to create amazing dishes. We do not eat meat, so those dishes may have been better. For the amount we ate and drank it was expensive. Service was good and share plates were fairly well spaced.

We went for NYE and had a 8 (I lost count!) course meal and everything was amazing! My only critique is the dining space. I wish we could have had more room to comfortably cut and eat our food.

Prix Fixe New Years menu was well thought out, great conception of flow throughout each plate. Servers were aware and knowledgable of timing, drinks and the chefs menu. Great experience.

We had dinner here before a show and again we were very impressed. This was our second time in here and our first time for dinner. I do love small plates and with food like the Spur you cannot go wrong with anything on the menu, although I thought the price was a bit steep. 1 Salmon crostini 4 bucks (although I did order 4 of them) and the drinks are amazing as well, but again small and a bit on the expensive side. However this seems to be a trend in the local bar scene. I have noticed a 2-4 dollar increase throughout Seattle with regards to the "craft" drinks.

Overall you cannot go wrong here. Fantastic food, great staff and amazing drinks. This has made my list of Top Ten places in Seattle, so I will be back.

Order the Sockeye Salmon Crostini and the Beef Heart Tartare. You will not be disappointed. The cocktails are a creation all on their own, I prefer the Bad News from Houston but venture away and try the Time Has Its Revenges. The absinthe flavors the cocktail with the perfect hint of anise.

The cocktain pairing in particular with the chef's tasting course were a real treat. This was our second time we have been there and have been exceptionally impressed. Spur it up there with the big name restaurants in Seattle.

We love Spur because of the food. We are never disappointed. My fav is the burger with a sous vide duck egg. It isn't always on the menu but whenever I ask, they always seem to accommodate. My husband is a big fan of their sweet breads, not my favorite dish in general but I will eat them here and that says something! Their beef heart tartar is outstanding too! I feel like you really can't go wrong.

Very good experience. You just have to try the grass fed beef burger w onion jam, delightful! We even had a dish that we did not care for and our server was incredibly gracious and immediately removed it from our table as well as from our bill. Service and food was a definite 5 our of 5!

We enjoyed sharing several of their small plates. The tables are quite close together, so it can feel a little bit crowded (similar is restaurants in big cities in Europe). Our waiter was very kind and attentive, but the service was a bit slow--we think he must have gotten slammed with too many tables at once. Food was delicious with some unusual twists. I would definitely visit again! :)

Once again Spur delivered; great meal, cocktails and service. Considering our party of 3 had about 15 different dishes and all of them executed well with friendly service.
