It was bowling, I lost very bad. They had some drink that sounded good but I don't remember what
Pretty decent place for going out with friends for bowling or pool. I really liked it!
Staff was nice and food was good, but the music is too loud to have a decent conversation. Plus you need reservations for the games, however the pool tables sit open even if the reserved party isnt there. Kinda silly but we talked our way into a table. Get there early or make reservations!
Nice option in the bar's zone
Good pool table, and very professional staff!
Random bowling, pool & bar spot that’s super chill. Me and my friends passed by and drank abit.
Great spot to play some pool
This is the first time I’ve been to a bowling bar. The environment is pretty nice and the drinks are good. However the crew could have been more friendly. They seem to be a little bit impatient.
One of my favorite go to places for pool. Been coming here for years. Love the new ownership. Food quality is much better.
Food was expensive & not that good. I didn't have a drink, so I can't comment on that. I wish they had Happy hour food prices to go with the Happy hour drinks.
Nice and large pool tables. Bowling for a fair price. Great happy hour prices on drinks and games.
Great for team events, food isn't great, but easy bar food, great organization of space and communication. I don't like it enough to go when I'm not in a group, but is the easiest place to have a party with 10-30 people and actually move around instead of talking to the two people next to you, or doing nothing but drinking.
Its so sad that my husband and I's fave place was bought out by a corporate company who no longer cares about quality service. The food was not very pnw friendly, and the drinks were terrible. I hope they recover and get better!
Its a Little spendy and there drinks ARE NOT STRONG. but the environment and all things to do in one place what make me give it 4 stars
Can’t beat the draft beer prices on happy hour, plus this place gets props for all the space and activities. Our waitress was super prompt, accurate, and patient. Food was average, but portions are generous.
Google asked me to review this only because I recently said out loud the word garage a lot in reference to their change of ownership. This 3 star review is almost solely based off of that recent decision to sell the building to a larger corporate business known as AMF. I can only suspect that the workers of the garage are not excited to be a part of a national company, but I may eat my words. We will see what changes come about Garage.
Fun place to meet up with friends and have drinks!
Neat concept, but maintenance issues are apparent. Frequent errors with the lanes. The balls themselves have definitely seen better days. They would also get stuck and not pop back out until the system was reset multiple times. Drinks were pricey and pretty weak. Not a bad experience, but we expected more for the price we paid to bowl.
It's a good place. Pool tables and bowling and beer.
Cool space, but be sure to get a reservation. We went in and there was a 5 hour wait for a lane. Food was decent and prices were good.
The paste here was amazing!!
Was told that there was drink service at the pool tables but never once got asked if we wanted anything. Pool cues were often warped and be warned that pool tables are full sized, not bar sized. Front desk service was kind and welcoming when we came in. There were many tables which would be great for a large group
Friendly staff, great food and drinks. Great time bowling!
Nice bowling alley, not so much people
Beware! Prices are much higher than before. No notice but 3x the cost. New ownership operating under the same brand. Ignore reviews before 2 months ago. I feel like I was scammed coming here. What used to cost $10 now costs $30. Same pool and bowling but higher prices and new ownership.
Great vibe. Owners take good care of guests.
A fun place to hangout with friends after work. They have great staff and service. They had amazing wings but recently the management has changed and with it their chef. They don't have the same menu anymore. I wish they could bring back those wings. Other than that this place is great. 8/10 would recommend.
It's simply great.
Good place to go play pool and bowl! It's super busy on the weekends so we usually come during the week. They have really good specials. I love their giant soft pretzel!
I've been going to the Garage for a few years now for my wife's Xmas party (RGN) and they're on point. The food is good and the wait staff exhibits great timing; my beer was always full. Good job!
Food and drinks were great and bowling was ok despite lane mechanical issues. However, overall area is sketchy... Colleague had their car broken into and laptop stolen when parked in covered lot nearby.
Great staff, surprisingly good food for a joint that combines bowling and pool in a cultivated dive bar atmosphere.
Only visited for bowling. Overall very good experience. The only negative - I understand the tipping culture in the US, but didn't like the fact that the guy at the billing counter was kind of pushy about getting a tip. I'm ok tipping but don't like being asked specifically like "hey, please make sure you tip... and it goes to your server."
I would give no star if possible. Our 3 reserved lanes ended up being placed together in lane 1 to 3, but had to be separated due to lane 1's scoring screen. Our waitress stated that it had been that way for the last 2 years. The screen is clearly broken, but James of the management argued that it was not broken as the screen being on for 3 to 5 second before during off for 10 seconds in endless intervals constituted "working". They eventually agreed to move our lane one to lane 6. James stated they would not charge us for the 30 minutes of us fussing with broken lane 1, they wouldn't use lane 1 the rest of the night, and we would be able to leave our party's personal belongings in lane 1. Well, James clearly lied. Less than 30 minutes later, another party was placed in lane one, and my friend was charged for the first 30 minutes on broken lane 1. This place has gone downhill drastically over the 2 years since our previous party. We will not be back.
Great service. Great atmosphere. Great food.
Nice place.. lots of people. Good food, average blowing lanes, worse balls
Liked the place good drinks delicious appetizers had a great time playing pool with my sister , son and son in law
Love this place! Very good food! Great collection of pool tables, bowling lanes and even a couple of smaller games like Shuffle board tucked away in some of there corners. There mac and cheese will blow your mind. Enjoy!
Always nice to come and play pool at the garage. Tables are all in great shape and the waiter came by more times to ask if we needed anything than at the restaurant we were at previously
Best pool and bowling spot in the area. Great for larger groups.
A nice popular place for pool and bowling in Cap Hill. Spacious but can get very busy with over 3plus hour wait times during the weekend. So make sure to call in and make a reservation for either if you're Keen on not waiting round. They got food and some good drinks on bar though, so you can fill your tummy and have a good time.
Pool. Bowling. Beer. What more can you ask for?
Good place to get out and have some wholesome fun. Some of the friendliest staff, and good specials on food and drinks late night.
There are so many pool tables and bowling lanes around that you rarely have to wait. Friendly staff. The server is always walking around asking everyone if they need anything. The prices are pretty reasonable.
Hot!! But fun. Would be great if you could keep your waitress, cuz our first was awesome!
Well done date night worthy bowling alley and pool hall with a full menu. Went on a Sunday evening and got a lane in less than a 30 minute wait. I would give it a five if pizzas and some of the appertizers were a bit better. The burgers and chicken tenders are good.
Beer selection is just ok and the bowling alley infrastructure is old. Nice decor/atmosphere.
Great place for a large party !!
A nice place to have a good time
Decent place. Bowling and pool us fun.
Saw the reviews I thought I would be a wonderful place it was but with terrible service Asked for ranch almost three times and never get it.. never gonna visit again:(
Great place to drink and bowl after work.
Bar in the basement was fun. Lane against the far wall was a bit close and effected peoples game. All around awesome place though.
Bowling! And flat pool tables. Service is usually timely. Haven't tried the food yet but those pizzas sure look good.
Nice environment, great place to have a good time.
This place is the best. There are multiple large areas with pool tables and bowling alleys, along with a bar that serves each area! It's the perfect place to go for a fun date. The beer selection is good, and they have tasty food too!
Really nice atmosphere but they need to work a little bit more on the food , it wasn’t bad though
Bowling next door and plenty of snacks from the kitchen. It's a real pool hall.
Great place to have a good sized group have fun and have great drinks.
Good food. Fun atmosphere, plenty of space for corporate events.
Great place to hang out with friends, play some pool or bowling. If you want to play bowling make sure to make a reservation.
Fun and relatively cheap. Great happy hour!
Fun place, good beer. The wait times for bowling are a bit absurd, as is their unwillingness to provide any sort of estimate as to how long it will take if you’re “third on the list”.... additionally frustrating when you’re staring at wide open lanes not being used, but still have to wait. Not providing wait times makes sense since there is no time limit, which was ironic when they asked us to move since someone else had a reservation. To their credit, they did give us a free pitcher of beer for the inconvenience.
Cool place to play pool or bowl. Really good food and affordable drinks.
Great place to hang out and play some pool. Service is a bit slow
This place is pretty cool. There is a parking garage right next to it. The service is good and the food was good. It's a pool hall and bowling alley all in one place. There are multiple levels to bowl on and there is a bar and bathrooms at every level too. It is pricey for the condition of the decor but a fun place non the less.
Food was mediocre. I wouldn't recommend coming here except for pool or bowling.
Fun place to hang out with friends. It's a large pool room with a bowling alley. The bowling usually has a bit of a wait time unless you go during off times. Plenty of tables and decently priced if you split it amongst a group. Cocktails aren't bad. Long island's seemed a little on the weaker side but still a good tasting beverage.
Lots of fun, good for a place to hang out.
Food, wine and pool. Open late!
Good bar team, always a ton of great stuff to do including bowling, karaoke, pool, food, outdoor patio with fire pit, and so on. Great for large events.
Was a great place for a company celebration.
Every year the conference i go to rents this place out and its a ton of fun! Would HIGHLY recommend this place if you are traveling in Seattle.
Really cool place to go have fun with your friends, playing pool or bowling. They have a ton of tables and lanes, a little on the pricey side for the hourly rate. I think we ended up with 36$ for the pool table for a a few hours but it's nice to have the table to yourself. Service was good, all around. We will be back
Great place for meeting friends for a night of pool, individual practice or a company work event. They have good billiard tables and a few bowling lanes. 4 stars only due to the food they put out is over priced compared to the quality. Staff is always friendly and the atmosphere is lively. We come here quite often!
The atmosphere is awesome and they can hold your events
Nice bowling centre
Busy busy busy. For good reasons... pool and bowing and a bar. What else would you want? Fun for corporate parties (feels like there's always one going on here.) overall a great place and one of the only bowling alleys left in Seattle.
New management. Many people don't like change, but we come here on Tuesdays and I wasn’t about to stop. However, the service is sub par. Burger? 42 minutes to arrive, cold. Ketchup? Never came. Fried cauliflower? 26 minutes and cold. An extra glass for our pitcher? 8 minutes. Garage has some work to do.
A lot of fun and options good greasy food.
Good place to bowl, good beer and food too. I always love the crowd here
nice cool hip spot for bowling and pool...I enjoy everytime I come to Seattle
Great fun and food. More of an adult place but depending on the time of day you should be fine with kids. Servers were a little slow and we had to ask for stuff you would normally be given without asking(napkins, utensils, etc.) but it was worth it.
Bowling - This is a great place to visit with friends! It has both billiards and bowling, with the bowling usually having a ~30+ min wait on weekend nights, but they have a decent finger food menu to grab some food or drinks while you wait. It's a well maintained and clean location, but it has a nostalgic feeling. My biggest complaint is the pins seem to be heavier than other bowling alley's I've went with friends. You really need to work hard to knock the pins down, so it's not uncommon for friends to complain they're bowling the worst games of their life. Overall, it's fun and I recommend visiting.
We went here on a Tuesday night and it wasn’t super busy. It took over 20 mins for us to get our first and only drink and another 20 after we closed out our bowling to close out our drink tab. Many white men cut in front of us in line. The drinks were watered down. The servers were rude. Wouldn’t come back.
It was a great place for company party. Attentive staff, fun atmosphere, and good bowling and pool options.
Our server (Lily?) Was amazing! We were a large group and she was accommodating and helpful. She separated all of our tabs from the beginning. They also had our reserved table all set up for us. Overall an awesome experience!
Pool, shuffleboard, bowling, good food, fun crowd, and great staff! You won't be bored here and might run into someone you know.
There is a lot to do here. Bowling, billiards pool tables, and drinking.
Really nice time playing pool here with my friend. The tables are always clean and smooth, as are the balls. And often times it is a wonderful spot to bowl as well, used to go every Monday with some buddies to bowl and grab a few pitches of beer and some food. The food isn't amazing but they do have a really delicious hot sauce they serve with the chicken strips.
Local staff is A+, great. However, don't bother to deal with the corporate call center. On both occasions, they were determined to be unhelpful and only care about extracting as much $$ from you as possible. Total 180 degrees different once I talked to the local staff. I hope Garage can stave off the corporate greed and stay awesome.
Great staff! The bowling alleys frequently fill up, and the wait list does get long. They have alternative games and activities to compensate for that, which is great
The bars were decent, plenty of rooms to choose from to hang out in. Everything was pretty clean except the bathrooms but it was Saturday night. One thing though, was I've never seen so many hipster kids so if that's your thing, you'll be in hipster heaven. So many man buns and weird hats. But overall fun place
Good vibes all around
Nice bowling alley with several pool tables and different bars inside. Also offer multiple levels, patios, and drink service to the lanes. My only complaint was the speed of service, we had bowled through several games before our drinks even got there.
Went after work (3pm) was quiet enough for a good work party. They were very attentive and kept the beer and cider flowing! Very enjoyable :)
The Garage was a cool pool hall and old-school bowling alley. Pool is an hourly rate prorated by the minute, and table service was nice so we could just chill at the pool table. Service was a bit slow, as they seem to get slammed around peak hours, and we had to track down our server to tab out. Beer wasn't a bad price for a big city, though their drafts (10 or 15) weren't insanely varied or anything. Great to go hang out and drink a bit, but don't be in a rush.
Garage was recently acquired by chain bowling company Bowlero, and it might as well be a whole new business (and not in a good way). They no longer offer craft beer on tap (Blue Moon is the closest thing they have to Widmer). The happy hour has become unreasonably complicated, with some good deals ($2 Tuesday), but their old happy hour was CONSIDERABLY better. The food itself has degraded in quality, from what I considered top tier bar food to what tastes like grocery store frozen section food. The service was subpar (it often took 30+ minutes to get a new drink) but I don’t blame the server, as it seemed they had 1 bartender and 1 waitress for the entire outside area + about 1/3 of the massive inside area. Garage has gone from one of my regular spots to somewhere I don’t plan on returning.
We had a conference after party here and it rocked. Huge space, loads of pool tables and bowling lanes, would hang out there otherwise too.
I love the Garage at Capital Hill, well worth the visit.
They don't accept drivers license from other countries as proof of age.
The Garage is a great place to hang out with friends!
Ambiance was definitely good. Great taco tuesday=)
Big pool hall fun place
Fun Great value
Love the copious amounts of pool tables they have. Their happy hour is amazing
I really fun spot but annoys the s*** out of me that they card people that are in their 40s and 50s. So only go with everyone's got a current ID because they have bouncers at the door like their studio 54 or something.
The only place to go bowling in seattle proper, so they got that going for them. Thankfully, they don't take advantage of the monopoly too hard, and have one of THE best happy hours in Capitol Hill, with good cheap drinks and half priced bowling. Highly recommend going during non peak hours, like week nights or Sundays to avoid the long queues if you expect to bowl without a lengthy (1.5hr+) wait.
9/5/19 Drink was pretty tasty, but definitely not Ciroc or strawberry purée like the menu stated...I watched the guy at the only open bar pour a random vodka and some strawberry syrup into the cup...Not worth 11ish dollars
One of my favorite go to places to hang with amazing people!
The garage is great for bowling and pitchers of beer no matter who you are. They also have pool table set up in a lot of breathing Room. Though it kind of reminds me of a warehouse turn into a bowling alley, it's good vibes all around
Good place to bowl and play pool. Good vibes and good people working there!
Came here a while back, and it was really awesome. The billiard hall combined with the bowling alley is a pretty cool setup. The food is really good as well, but with more of your smaller bar sized portions. The service was pretty good, but when they get busy, it seems like you can get lost in the crowd and it takes a while to get someone over again. I kept having to go up to the bar to get things. Still, it's a cool place with a cool atmosphere and well worth a visit.
Very cool place to hang out with friends. Bowling pool and a bar.
Entering inside the garage, I noted some spatial rearangements since the last time I had been here. Probably for the sport hall's improvement. Was it? Well, the food tastes significantly better. As far as the space is concerned, best to ask leagues that might take advantage of the hall seperations. Also, the availability of new clean socks for the bowling shoes is a big plus in terms of sanitation.
Came in on the 4th of July. Fun and relaxed atmosphere for bowling - it was a slow day - and decent drinks, but pretty expensive. We hadn't been here before, and the guy at the door, Aleric, was super helpful when we weren't sure where to go, even walking my friend to the bathroom when she couldn't find it. Good experience, though the price of bowling really added up quick.
Solid bowling alley, technology is a bit dated but I recommend it anyways. The venue is 21+ and offers food and drinks. Usually pretty busy to be sure to reserve if you want a lane for sure.
Interesting place. Expensive. Limited parking. Lane appeared to be in need of serious TLC. Poor attention from waitstaff. Good food though.
I used to go to The Garage all the time before it was purchased by Bowlero. Unfortunately after the buyout, prices have shot up, the menu has shrunk, and food portion sizes have been seemingly cut in half. The cost to reserve one lane for two hours was $50/hour, with a two hour minimum, not counting shoes. Before The Garage was purchased, lane reservation rates were $12/hour, with a single $10 reservation fee. The price increase from $34 to $100 for the same number of lanes and time used is kind of a bummer, especially considering they haven't made any improvements or anything. The staff was very nice there, but they were obviously understaffed, leaving our poor waitress juggling way more lanes/customers than she should have had to.
Relatively cheap bowling only 4 dollars a game. The machines are a bit old but it adds to the atmosphere.
Bowling alley is in the basement with its own bar. Great vibes for a Friendsgiving/work party. Not sure about the music playing, or the bright lighting though.
Great space. Bowling alleys and pool tables to entertain. Nice selection of beers including Two Beers from Seattle.
Always a great venue for the last night of MozCon
Awesome place to hang out with friends! The food is amazing and lots of pool tables and bowling! Def a chill place to hang out on Capitol Hill!!
Cool place to hang out with a friend or in a group. Food was good, I liked the pulled pork sliders and drinks were kind of weak. Service was fast and friendly. But the bartenders were overwhelmed took us 20 min to get a drink at the bar. But we will definitely go back.
This place used to have pretty good food, but recently changed their menu and did not do themselves any favors. Went from tasty mix of American dishes to nasty greasy slop. The bowling alleys are extremely dated and malfunction constantly. Even the bowling balls are so damaged they jump out of the gutters.
Love the garage. Very fun and great for company parties. Only thing is the bowling lanes mess up quite a bit but other than that definitely recommend
Awesome! Get there and play some pool. Good date spot or place to meet up with friends
Pool tables and bowling lanes charged by the hour. Free shuffleboard. Decent drinks and food. A great place to spend any night of the week. Beware of weekends and LONG waits.
Had a work team outing here. Very nice, accommodating staff, excellent food, great atmosphere. We reserved the mezzanine for 40 people and it was the perfect size. Also adding 3 pool tables and 2 bowling alleys was perfect.
I hadn't been here in two decades. The renovations since I last came really gives the place an interesting feel. I like the separate bowling area. We had a private event and the staff made us feel welcome and special. Great food for a bowling/billiards spot.
Nice bowling alley and pool place with good selection of beer, cocktails and side bites to go along with drinks.
Staff and drinks are the best part of this place!
Nice bartenders. Great garlic parmesan fries. Good happy hour and daily drink specials
Great pub, great place for pool and bowling
Great service. Bowling lanes not the best of all conditions and wouk recommend other locations such as West Seattle Bowl.
Clean and can accommodate very large groups. Food was good too. Great place for parties.
Great venue. Poor service
Good food. Standard bowling. They have a downstairs that can be reserved for company parties, etc.
Very nice restaurant nicely laid out, The menu is very good and the food itself was excellent couldn’t ask for better. The service was impeccable the staff very attentive. They pulled out all the stops for my friend's birthday and made it a wonderful experience. And a very enjoyable evening.
The place is quiet unique, everyone is over 21, there is bowling on 2 floors, a private room, and a number of pool tables.
Fun place and cheap beers.
This bar/restaurant is a real find! You can sit at a table and have waiter service to order off of the menu posted on the wall, or you can stand at the bar and point at various small plates that you'd like to try. The staff is really friendly and so this isn't as intimidating as it might as first seem.
Kinda expensive. The music could be better too. Very limited space during the weekend.
So they allow service animals but some guy on a power trip with a broken leg denied me access. Art Marble 21 and Flatstick much better time and allow service animals with out being hassled. Garbage staff
Great place for bowling and pool! Great customer satisfaction - our lane got stuck multiple times and they sponsored the game on the house!
Cool bar in the middle of Cap Hill with a massive footprint. Lots of pool tables and bowling alleys. Great happy hour deals - $3 beer!
We played for about 30 minutes here. Cost $7.43 despite on the receipt saying it's $6.75 per hour for a table. It was overcrowded so you constantly need to wait for the tables next to you to finish their shots. We still had fun but I would not recommend this place because of overpricing, overcrowding and we had to wait about 15 minutes to get a table.
Great place meet up, shoot pool or bowl and have a libation. Small groups easily handled in this large space!
Combine bowling booze board-games and billiards and you get a wonderful experience
Fun, two level bar with bowling and billiards. Great for birthdays, corporate events, and get togethers.
Fun pool bar, tons of tables with bowling available too
Went on a Saturday night. There are few people serving tables, so it can take a lot until the waiter/waitress get to you. It has pool and bowl in the same place, which is good, but you are obligated to pay for the shoes when you go bowling. Food is nice, though the fries looked like they were not fresh.
Good bands, decent drink prices
Drinks are okay - Long Island Iced Tea was quite strong - but not exactly high quality. Bowling and pool are fun, and everyone is nice. I'd come back with appropriate expectations.
Went there will office colleagues, good price for bowling, we played for 2 hours. Food was great too. Would definitely like to visit again. Only reason to reduce 1 star is because of their old bowling lane and machines which sometimes gets stuck in middle of the play.
Friendly service, good snacks, and fun bowling.
Great pool tables at a reasonable price
