Good but too many old drinkers. You really can't beat the bar experience here when you are in that rare German mood. I don't really like the taste of German been when compared to Northwest Microbrews so I only go here for atmosphere.
Yeah, service on the weekend can be iffy.. but my friends and I love "Da boot.." lol
Fun place, food was good as well. I like the weekday night atmosphere here.
Great beer, inconsistent service. I have mixed feelings about this place. The beer is awesome and is the primary draw. The atmosphere is okay; the food fair but not great. The worst part is the service which is inconsistent. It just seems to be a mixed bag and usually the bartender is rude, non-conversational, cold, aloof and will ignore you if you let her. Occassionally there is a good bartender there who is friendly and service oriented. The owner should really do something to improve the service here. The odd thing is that Die Bierstube on Roosevelt, owned by the same guy, has much better service. More often than not the bartender at Prost has the unmistakable look of someone who would rather be elsewhere. But, as I mentioned, the beer is good!
Beware of the Saturday night bartender!!!. Prost is one of our favorite mellow bars - a nice change from some of the loud, happening places in Seattle. My friends and I grabbed a table and went up to the bar in groups to order a beer. The bartender was so rude to each of us, we almost left. As members of our party came back to the table, we all had the same thing to say "WOW, she was rude!" She ignored half of the group while obviously helping anyone else she could. I asked "which is the lightest beer" and she rolled her eyes at me and walked away. I was shocked. She then came up to us and said "did you make up your mind yet?" never once did she smile, make eye contact, or try to help us in a professional way. It put a damper on the night and gave us a good reason to never go back on a Saturday night.
Be prepared to clean up after other patrons. Besides the fact that on a Saturday night there appeared to be only one bartender, all was well, beer was good until someone as the bartender put it "blew chunks" in the men's room behind the toilet. The only reason I know this is because the bartender then took it upon herself to inform the group of people I was with in an accusatory manner and was quite insistent that it MUST have been someone in our group. (My guess is because we were the loudest.) She then provided rags and said that "someone" could clean it up. Knowing full WELL that no one in our group had committed the offense, one of our guys went ahead and commenced with clean up to keep the angry bartender away. I'm pretty sure that patrons are not supposed to handle the bodily fluids of other patrons be it a health code violation or even just a social yuck. We will not be returning for sure, there are other German bars with good beer, better service and a less likely chance that we will pay $7 for a beer and then be given disgusting clean up duty.
Great german bier line-up. Recently remodeled with a great new bar..
The new Prost is finally here. The great beer line up is the same as it was before. Classics and new classics like Spaten, Bitburger, Baron, Franziskaner, etc. The food is the same basic fair - brats, pretzels, etc. There are now awesome german pickles on the menu. The new bar is great. A huge piece of old timber is the entire bar - No More Pink counter top bar!!!. There is a new hard-wood floor and a fresh coat of paint. It is warmer and more inviting than before. The service is pretty good. Some new faces that are both good and bad. One server in particular is pretty vapid and slow. The other new servers I think their names are Jessica and Jimmy are great.
Just writing this makes me want a beer.
great vibe and beer. i love this place----cool bartenders and great selection on beer. it's a neighborhood bar with a chill vibe....i would go back for sure
Go for the Franziskaner Weissbier . . .. Stay for the atmosphere and friendly/knowledgable staff. Very nice selection of German beers and wine.
Strongest Beer in Town. Hard day at work? This German girl suggests the Optimator. Sweet, dark and malty-- this well-sized brew really does the trick. Now that the smoking ban is in effect this bar presents the perfect spot to lazily lounge over a Bavarian-style pretzel with mustard while watching a game or catching up with old friends. Had a REALLY hard day at work? Just order the boot. Trust me, you'll thank me later.

PLEASE somebody lay off the heavy bleach in this place! We either have some obsessive compulsive owners or they just among the rare folk that like the bleach smell. It's not just a one time deal either, I've been in many times curious to see if it's got better. Especially with the smoking ban there is no need to go so crazy with bleach.
Unless they take steps to ameliorate this olfactory roadblock the beer isn't enough to keep me going back.
