For a casual weeknight dinner with a few rounds of beer on the south end, Columbia City Ale House is a good choice. It’s a comfortable space with plenty of seating for you and your friends and they serve everything from fish tacos to patty melts. The beer selection is always pretty diverse, and it works well for a last-minute spot to catch a Mariners game.
