The Wedgewood Alehouse
8515 35th Ave NE
Seattle, WA 98115
The Wedgewood Alehouse is a little north of U Village and east a dozen blocks.
The Wedgewood is a dive, but not in the traditional sense. This place reminds me a bit of the Latona Pub, a bit of Smarty Pants, but it is way better. This place cranks out solid food, day after day, night after night, but doesn’t lack sincere character like the aforementioned. You will find guys propped up at the bar the whole day here and there is clearly a sense of community around the horseshoe shaped bar. While the Latona admittedly has good food, it’s expensive and it is a “get’m in, get’m out” kinda place. The Wedgewood Alehouse is a destination, not a stop over.
The service here is top notch, there is a swarm of servers that seem to team up on the customers to ensure the drinks are wet and the food is hot.
