How I heard of this place: On our evening walks along the waterfront, we inevitably happen by this lively Irish Pub. When our friends were interested in getting together for dinner, it was a great excuse to sample our neighborhood fare.

Type of cuisine: The pubs “all day menu” offers traditional Irish favorites including Guinness Braised Irish Beef Stew, homemade Shepherd’s Pie and Dublin Coddle. Along with an extensive Irish whiskey and Scotch collection, imported beers and some local brew, Paddy Coyne’s offers a full, varied drink menu including a “must experience” authentic Irish Coffee.

Ambiance: Old world charm in this expansive, waterfront establishment reeks of the musty wooden empire of old Eire. From the front door, along Alaskan Way, whether you look to the right,

you are ever immersed in a warm sea of wooden booths, tables, chairs and the jovial atmosphere of an Irish Pub.

Pier 70 is our newest location. Located right on the Waterfront in downtown Seattle, Paddy Coyne’s Pier 70 is a great spot to soak in the beauty of the Puget Sound while enjoying a cold pint of beer and a good meal. Come enjoy Breakfast every weekend from 9am-2pm, and Trivia every Wednesday at 8pm. This location is also kid friendly until 10pm and includes a pet friendly waterfront patio with weather permitting.

What I ordered: We decided to start our meal with the Fry Basket ($5), a moutain-high basket of shoestring fries, topped with cheddar cheese and Pat’s special seasoning.

For our main entrees, at the recommendation of our server, I selected the Irish BLTC ($13), a toasted baguette layered with Irish rashers, mayonnaise, white cheddar, tomato and crisp lettuce. Our east-coast friend and dining companion chose the same.

My husband enjoyed – and shared a sample – of the Fish & Chips ($): Alaskan cod dipped in Paddy’s own ale batter, quick-fried until crispy. Served with coleslaw, fries and house tarter sauce.

Across the table from me, we had one order for the Grilled Chicken Sandwich ($12): grilled chicken breast on a toasted Ciabatta bun topped with Swiss cheese, Anaheim peppers and horseradish mayonnaise.

And the fifth among us selected the Fisherman’s Pie ($15): Alaskan cod, salmon, shrimp and dill in a tasty sauce topped with mashed potatoes and served with Irish Soda Bread.

What I loved: Fry Basket. The other things were great, don’t get me wrong. But the cheesy shoestring fries with Pat’s special seasoning stole the show.

Why I loved it: Not only did we randomly happen upon Trivia Night – which we won! – we had friendly servers, enjoyed a beautiful view and dined on large portions of delicious pub grub. An evening to remember.

Cost: Average ($10 – $15 per entree)
