Green star Calamity Jane's (Georgetown)

5701 Airport Way S
Seattle, WA 98108
(206) 763-3040

Calamity Jane’s sort-of-vintage chandeliers, cowgirl logo, etc., approximate the Georgetown historic aesthetic, and the building’s the genuine article (a 1909 hotel). The antique oak bar came from the defunct Georgetown Tavern. The scene’s neighborly (“Billy bought your first beer,” says the barkeep to a guy sitting alone). And what comes out of the kitchen—which, through its door and window, seems lit by its own close-range fluorescent sun—is unpretentious and satisfying good ol’ American food. Get soup, the ribs if they have them, and definitely dessert, made by Janice with love.

Good food, art and service

Had great service, food & the art was very interesting to look at! Try it, you'll like it!

I live in Gtown

So yes they are not open on Sunday. Other then that it's a great place to eat. The bbq sliders are the best. I've had everything on the menu at least once. It's really all good. The service is the best you will get in Gtown...Trust me I know since I've wait 2 hours for a pizza at Stellar and was totally forgotten about at Smarty Pants. The only other place that has great food is Juls Mae's and the Hanger Cafe. CJ's is one of the best in Gtown.

Go There

I have never done a food review before, but Calamity Jane's compels me. Every time I've gone there the food has been wonderful and the service competent and friendly. I do notice it seems kind of empty, overall, and I am writing this message because I hope things improve. Just go there, and you will want to come back. And these people who deserve to do a good deal of business will, and their will be harmony in our universe. (And order their Shepard's Pie. It just might change your life).

Veggie Cottage Pie!

This is the best vegetarian shep pie (Cottage Pie) I have ever had! Amazing, I would totally go back for it.

Basic doesn't mean average

Four of us went on a Friday at about 6:30. My date had crab/shrimp sandwich, I had angel hair pasta with clam sauce, and the other folks had grilled ahi salad. Everything was way above average, and the crab/shrimp melt was wonderful, although it cost 14 bucks, which is an expensive sandwich. The service was fast and friendly. It's a pretty large place for Georgetwon, with about 15 tables, and the parking could be better ( we had to walk a block to get there ), but all in all, worth the trip.

Best food in G-Town

If you're looking for a bar that can't be reached for the crowding or a half-hour wait for a table, this isn't the place. I eat out at least four days a week, and lately CJ's gets three of them. I've never had a bad item on the menu, and the crowwd seems normal when I stop in, usually 7:30 or 8:00 PM. Maybe the food tastes different from the street, but it's pretty damn good at the table. Tonight's special was a crab and shrimp sandwich, and baby, it was good.

Uh ...

Does it seem to anyone else like the employees of the restaurant are writing the reviews of this place? I actually agree with the reviewers who comment about the lack of patrons. Hey, it IS Georgetown, after all. Nice, but usually empty. (I saw no one licking their plates, by the way.)

Take Out or Go In

The food is refereshingly different, and the sauce on the burgers is world class. I'm a picky eater, and I've got no complaints about any of it. The Happy Hour is greata, and the folks are fast and friendly. What's not to like?

The Brunch of Heaven

Sunday brunch has become a habit in a few short weeks. They've only been serving on Sunday mornings for a little while, but everything I've tried is perfect. From Steak and Eggs to Benedicts and back - it's perfect. The happy hour gives you a place to actually talk, and people you'd actually like to talk to. For a new joint in Georgetown, it's off to a good start.

As Good as G-Town gets

Unlike VAL, I actually eat in a place before I review it... I went in on a slow night, and the staff treated me like I was family, or at least a welcome guest. No too-hip-for-you stuff. The food was 'way better than I expected for such reasonable prices - are these gourmet chefs slumming, or talented youngsters? Worth a trip out of the way.

I was there last Thursday with my date and loved it. It's the best burger I've had in Seattle. My date had the Cinninati Chili and practically licked the plate clean. Dessert was a hot apple pie with ice cream. I'll be back, Just thinking about it, maybe tonight.

Did it close?

I ate here a while back and had a good burger and a beer or two with some coworkers. Nice atmosphere and within walking distance of other G-Town hangouts. But I went past it on Saturday night about 8 p.m. and no one was in the whole place! It would be a shame if it closed. Or is it just really, really unpopular -- even for Georgetown?

Does anyone eat here?

I'm usually in Georgetown once a week, and I've always wanted to try this place for dinner. Either it's not open (closed on Sundays?) or not a soul is dining there. This scenario also occurred just last night, leading me and my crew to flee for another spot for a burger. So, positive reviewers: When do you eat here? And how come it's not when I am there?

Right On

I had a great experience at Calamity Jane's. The food was surprisingly yummy and the presentation was nice as well. The service was pleasant and didn't seem to skip a beat, even though they were short staffed. And let's not forget the cleverly titled and good going down drinks. It's definately a place that I will frequent.

Not Miraculous, Just Okay

I have been to Calamity's more than once and find it to be pretty average. Only three beers on tap is a bit of a bummer, but I can satisfy my thirst at other Georgtown watering holes like nearby Stellar Pizza. The food is what you would expect. It's the atmosphere I don't like. The bar seems to be in akward place, making you feel like turning around in your seat. The seats & tables just don't look inviting. At night, the glaring bright light from the kitchen is rather annoying. Service has been great though.

Good Stuff

Stopped by for lunch and had the catfish sandwich. Very tasty and nicely presented. Friendly staff, casual ambiance. Nice place with good food.

Totally yummy

Just ate there last night for the first time, after driving by zillions of times. Very comfortable setting. About half couples, half families with lots of well-behaved kids. My dining companions had the beans greens, and a burger w/salad. I had the veggie lentil pot pie and a cup of the soup. Our table got suddenly quiet as we all were too busy enjoying our food to talk. Great food, reasonable price, relaxed atmostphere. We'll be back. And I'll definitely be stopping by to take home a big order of their sauted greens on a consistent basis.

Casual place with great food

The bartenders are always friendly and the food is good and fast. What more do you need in a place? The drinks are pretty strong but that isn't a bad thing. The only negative is that there isn't any parking.
