    Very pleasant, but very small.

    Soccer and rare beer.

  3. Friendly Neighbor says:

    Great bar with good sandwiches and selection of beer. Too bad the female bartenders are so unfriendly.

  4. Bill says:

    A good beer selection. I’ve been there twice. The first time was enjoyable with one of the owners helping us select a beer. Nice guy and knowledgable.

    The second time a female bartender was unfriendly and unhelpful, even after we asked her to tell us about the IPA selections. Why have someone like her setting the tone. I’ll probably never go there again.

    I’m a frequent visitor to The Dray. Interesting tap selection and a great bottle selection. The sandwiches are pretty good (my favorite is the breakfast sandwich).

    That being said, I believe that The Dray has the least comfortable bar stools in Seattle. Every 5 minutes or so, I have to stand up to regain feeling in my legs. I’m not the only one.

    There is one server that makes me feel like I’m more of an imposition than a customer. She is, however, efficient and knowledgeable. At the end of the day, that’s all I really need.

    Even with these gripes, this is one of my favorite beer places in the city.

    One of my favorite pubs in the area. Which is not surprising because I love beer and football. Always had friendly service and love the speed at which they rotate the taps.
