Dad Watsons

Dad Watsons in Fremont is one of the many McMenamin pubs here in Seattle.  Wooden booths and long tables greet you was you enter, and if you wander all the way to the back you’ll find a staircase to an outdoor deck overlooking Fremont’s main drag.  The long tables are one of the really nice features at Dad’s as it makes it easier for large groups to gather. 
 
They brew their own beers offering several standards and a rotating cast of seasonal specialties. Currently on tap is Scarecrow ESB.  I guess fall really is here!  Food is mostly comforting pub grub with excellent burgers.  It’s one of those places you can always count on for a nice, casual meal or beverage or two. 
 
 
 
 
 
On Friday, while taking a break from the Fremont Oktoberfest activities a group of friends and I stopped in for a bite to eat.  I ordered their Mac and Cheese, which I’d never had before.  I thought it was good but not great.  It seemed to be lacking a distinct character.  The flavor was a little flat and I wish the cheese had been creamier.  It wasn’t a bad alternative but the burgers at the table looked much more enticing to me.  However, on Friday, with a bit of drizzle in the air, the warmth and idea of Mac and Cheese was comforting. 
 
The place can get very crowded but I find that patience can pay off.  There is a lot of activity here and it seems that someone is always coming or going.
