Located in the heart of Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, Capitol Cider is a restaurant, bar and bottleshop that offers one of the country’s largest selections of hard ciders on tap and in bottles. Capitol Cider also offers an entirely gluten-free menu. The frequently-changing 30-handle tap is split between 20 ciders and 10 beers, and the cider bottle list includes more than 100 selections from Washington state, Montana, Oregon, California, British Columbia, England, France and Spain. Capitol Cider’s downstairs bar—The Ballast Bar—has a capacity of 190 and feeds all the senses with terrific food and drink, live music, art, board games, shuffleboard and a 91” big screen for the big games and current events.

Gluten free kitchen, great cider selection, great atmosphere, or two atmospheres even, with a more lively downstairs and more laid back main floor. Bars on both floors. The food is consistently good, service is mixed, normally solid, sometimes just adequate.

We love eating at Capitol Cider ~ the food never disappoints and the service is excellent. Look no further than this menu! Definitely a 5 star rating.

Amazing cider selection, worth a visit for that alone. Staff is knowledgeable but otherwise average. The food is fine but not the star here. This really is all about their cider selection.

The food was fine but the staff was pretty rude, which made us unlikely to go back. The hostess was unfriendly when we asked for a table, and the server walked away when one of our party was still talking to them. We weren't being rude and weren't drunk or anything, he just said he wasn't sure if he was going to order food just yet (she walked away after "I don't think I'm going to order" before he even finished his sentence). I could understand the server getting frustrated about tips or something bc of that, but still... We definitely didn't feel warm customer service here.

My mom was visiting Seattle from another country. She is 56 years old. She CLEARLY looks like a 56 years old person. They did not let her come in because she was not carrying an official ID (passport). I come to this bar almost every weekend, and some days they don't even ask me for my for IDs. It does not make sense. We came from another bar in the area. In that bar, they asked ME for an ID, but not her. We were not intoxicated, we were behaving well, we were well dressed. So what are you people trying to achieve? Is this some kind of discrimination? Please explain this to me.

Great place to try some interesting ciders. The food leans toward the more expensive, but the happy hour has some great specials. The fries are very good.

Wait staff absent. They take your order, but disappear and check on you about every 30 or 40 minutes. Panhandlers present to bum money or ciggs outside. Management will ask you step outside of the iron ornamental barricade that they have established outside if you go out to smoke even if you are a patron, No "NO SMOKiNG" signs posted along the wall to give the patrons a clue. NO PROTECTION FROM PREDATORS.. This establishment more interested in image than the well being of the patron. Yes, it's gluten free, but the burger bun tastes like cardboard. The other offerings get a 4 star.

The ground floor seems tiny, but opens into a massive basement with a bar, games, and plenty of seating. Excellent food, beer, and ciders!
