Tips from the Net @ The Pine Box

I love their beer selection. They've got a great rotation and I can find something I want. The staff has a Seattle style (just snark enough but not rude, so I can get my kicks). The German plate is awesome. The vibe on weeknights is my thing. I have yet to be in on a weekend. GooglePlace - May 2017

Really great beer list and great food too. Stopped in during beer week and enjoyed their list of randalled beers. The standard list was pretty impressive too. The service was great, including helping us find a spot to sit on a busy night. GooglePlace - May 2017

The Pine Box gets its name as it sits in an old funeral parlor. They kept interior A great selection of beers and a very Cap Hill style food menu. We got the jalapeno hummus, tacos, the mac & cheese, and a pizza. While the food overall was pretty good, the beer is the true star of this place. They change out their kegs constantly and have a big selection of different types of beers. GooglePlace - May 2017

So the good first: - Always a great beer list. Especially considering their a Seattle craft beer bar. It's not like there's a shortage of those in Seattle. - Decent food. Decent probably isn't even a fair evaluation. The food isn't good enough to plan as a date night. But it's good enough to get above average food if you're out grabbing a pint. The not as good: - They have that beer elite attitude that you should feel lucky to be sitting in their establishment. Servers are generally rude and impatient. See also Brouwer's. - No half pours or tasters during beer events or weekends. Ignore all the 4oz tasters sitting along the bar. You can't drink out of those. They'll blame it on the space behind the bar. Never mind that other places like Beer Junction have figured it out. - It's in Capital Hill so parking is terrible. - This last one isn't a complaint as much as a warning. They are 21+. Not an option to bring kids like other Seattle favorites such as Chuck's (much friendlier staff and more relaxed tasting options as well by the way). GooglePlace - May 2017

Crowded when we arrived, employees ignored us upon entry as if to say 'we' don't need anymore customers' but we're meeting out of town guests so we found a spot outside. Unique atmosphere, food was good but need to work on friendliness and welcoming their guests. GooglePlace - April 2017
