Diving Into a Seattle Character Bar

It's shoulder-to-shoulder cozy in Seattle's Pacific Inn Pub

It’s shoulder-to-shoulder cozy in Seattle’s Pacific Inn Pub

The Pacific Inn Pub has been called a dive bar. I consider it merely comfortable, with a low stucco ceiling and comfy blue vinyl booths and counter stools. Rubbing shoulders with regulars at the counter offers me a good vantage point for keeping an eye on the ball games, while watching a friendly, efficient server pour pints and relay food orders to the cook at the end of the bar. It’s evidence that a small, well-run joint with a simple menu can be run by just two people.

I order a Mac and Jack’s amber ale and a two-piece order of fish and chips, the thin slices of cod lightly breaded and crispy, the mountain of fries hot and crunchy. If this is a dive bar, I’m ready to dive in.

The cod fish and chips are thin, crispy and tasty
