If you have not traveled to the end of Ballard Street by the docks to check out Bad Albert’s Tap and Grill, then I feel sorry for you. Bad Albert’s is a family-owned (by twins) tap and grill. They just celebrated their 20th anniversary, and the young professional crowd loves them! Not only do they have a neighborhood atmosphere, they also have 12 TVs and a full bar with award-winning food. The door is open, and an inviting staff welcomes you in. The air is fresh, the tables are clean, and people are happy. There are events during the week to keep you engaged and entertained.
The staff goes above and beyond here to make sure that you have just what you want. If you are looking for something gluten-free, do not be shy. Ask for what you are in the mood for, and the chef will prepare something special just for you! If you come back enough times, they will remember what you like! They are open late on the weekends, and cater to an older crowd during this time.
The coolest part, if you are not familiar with Bad Albert’s, is that they have a trivia night every Tuesday. Bring your co-workers after work for some bonding over a fast-paced game of trivia. If you have the munchies, feel free to come and get specials on their scrumptious appetizers and wash it down with a nice ale. Come on a Thursday and catch live music by Bill Chism and Annie Eastwood. Relax to the tunes with a $6 glass of wine and enjoy yourself!
Some menu items that are a must try are the Famous Dock Street Burger, the Bacon Gorgonzola Benedict, and the Tenderloin Steak Dinner which goes on sale during Happy Hour. This will soon be your favorite event spot on Tuesdays and Thursdays with ample parking and a full crowd. This could be the place where “everybody knows your name”.
