A nice spot to drink beer or dine on delicious seafood, this eatery is a refreshing change from the typical dark and smoky pubs of Ballard. The well-lit bar, cheerful with its colorful tables and chairs, serves breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner at moderate prices. Recommended seafood dishes include pan-fried mussels, oysters on the half shell and the blackened halibut entree. On Thursdays and Saturdays, live blues and rock music is featured.
Tractor Tavern is a down and dirty home for blues, foot-stomping rock, country, bluegrass, folk and Celtic music. If it's twangy, it's here. Shows blare into the street nearly every night of the week, and the space fills up faster than you might expect. A full bar is also available.
Grab a Guinness and a chair and sit back against the warm brick walls of this engaging Irish pub to enjoy the scene. There is a long, mirrored bar and the main floor is full of calm regulars and boisterous Irish-music enthusiasts. Open fiddling and dancing nights, as well as local bands including house band the Suffering Gaels, fill up the weekly schedule. Those looking for low-impact exercise can play pool or throw darts.
