King Leroy

We had high hopes for this all-day bar smack in the middle of Amazon territory, especially since it’s owned by the team behind Bateau and The Walrus And The Carpenter. However, King Leroy feels like a half-baked dive bar plopped in a neighborhood that didn’t really ask for one. Between mediocre jalapeño artichoke dip, buttermilk-brined wings that could use more crunch, and a seared bologna sandwich loaded with way too much smokiness and raw onion, the pub snacks here miss the mark. King Leroy would still be a decent late-night option in South Lake Union, though, and we wouldn’t mind stopping in for evening cocktails and beer, or a blackened cod sandwich, but only if Gold Bar is packed.
