Best bloody (Cesar) I've had in a long time. The salad included a prawn, olives, asparagus, a mussel, and various other accompaniments. The flavor was nice and balanced - although you could taste the seafood in the bloody it actually added a nice touch. The only downside is that there is no beer back; however, this seems to be normal in the west. If you end up in Victoria BC definitely check this out

Very interesting bloody. The salad consisted of eight very thin house made pickles (thinly veiled cucumbers, really). I am glad I ordered it spicy or it may have been overwhelmed by the vague flavor of cucumbers that permeated the drink. With that said, it was refreshing.

This bloody is served in a tumbler, so the size is about half of what you would expect. However, the strength and spice is right on. The salad is run of the mill, but the cost is low enough to overlook its shortcomings. This is a nice bloody in a quiet atmosphere perfect for talking.

Make sure you order the "spicy" variety. Without the extra kick it is not as good. At $4 it is a great deal with breakfast. The deep and balanced flavor was my favorite in town. However, as it is a breakfast special, it wasn't incredibly strong. Maybe a double next time?

Wonderfully balanced bloody made with house infused pepper vodka. Made unique by what tasted like a hint of clove in the mix. After too many chaserless PNW bloodys, I appreciate the craft chaser too.

Their signature bloody had a very nice spice bouquet although I could not tell there was vodka included. The salad was very nice with a peruvian pepper, some mozzarella, & a vermouth soaked olive.

Everything was alright here until the $11 price tag. Again, airport prices are higher than average but this was out of line. However, it had a very balanced flavor and served its purpose.

Very sweet bloody. Little to no spice but nice flavor overall. The vodka does a nice job at balancing the sweetness of their mix. The salad is very common for Canada - a pickled green bean, an olive, and a lime. Overall, a nice way to start a nice brunch.

Not quite sure what their "secret" ingredient was, but the flavor of this bloody was a great compliment to their breakfast. Pretty great flavor, strength, to cost ratio on this bloody considering it was a tourist town on the coast.

Wonderful bloody, wonderful view. At five dollars this might be the best bargain on the island. With craft pepper vodka and ocean side seating this is a glorious morning bloody.

Fairly basic bloody (cesar). Although strong (because it was a double), it needed extra spice to overcome the tomato flavor. With that said, the atmosphere was wonderful.

This was the "Hangtown" Mary. Any bloody with a freshly shucked oyster gets an A in my book. On top of that it was made with bacon infused vodka and house made bloody mix. Very nice flavor and believe it or not, the oyster salad didn't overpower the rest of the drink.

Making this with house infused chili vodka really made the spice in this bloody perfect. Unlike the "Hangtown" bloody, this did not come with an oyster, so the salad was somewhat "traditionally disappointing". However, the flavor, spice, and strength are hard to beat.

I believe the "Coney Island Bloody"Almost perfect. The salad consisted of olives, bacon, and a mini corndog, which went beautifully well with one of the best flavored bloodys I've had in the Northwest. The cost is in line with other Seattle establishments though it is expensive by midwest standards. All in all, I would recommend this as the best bloody I have tasted in Seattle - great spice, flavor, salad, and nice and strong. The only thing missing is the beer back.

This "famous" bloody was nicely spiced, well balanced, but nothing special. If you are in Portland and need a bloody, this is a great place to get one. Don't, however, expect anything extravagant.

If you are headed East out of Portland and want a bloody with a view of a 700 foot waterfall this is for you. I tried the "extra spicy" bloody; unlike many others, this one lived up to its billing with a nice mix of horseradish and hot sauce. The menu also boasts a smoked salmon bloody which I was not brave enough to try.

Delicious bloody. The spice was helped by the jalapeno vodka. It was uncharacteristically tall for a NW bloody which was a nice surprise. The salad had a large slice of pepperoni, a wedge of house smoked mozzarella, and some tasty olives. If you are in need of a nice bloody and are in downtown Seattle, I would not hesitate to grab one of these.

Their "el Diablo" bloody only lived up to its name after I added a generous portion of Tabasco. Good strength and overall spicing; if only it had more heat. They house infuse pepper vodka so I expected something quite spicy. With that said, it was still worth it as one of the best value bloodys I've experienced in Canada.

This is one of the best bloodys I've had in norther WI in a long time. Good balance in their mix and the single is strong enough to know you are drinking. Nice salad with a meat stick, cheese, olive, and some other salad items.

Great flavor in this bloody; the spice comes on at the end and smooths away the vodka perfectly. At $10 it is a bit too pricey for what you get. However, considering the location in Seattle (just past Pike Place Market) I think it was in line with everything else.

Nothing special here but it is a nice relaxer before a long flight; as airport bloodys go it isn't bad. Basic salad of olives, a pickle, and a lime. Strong enough but inflated price because of the location.

I had high hopes for this highly advertised bloody. However, it came in a heavily iced tumbler without any salad! With that said, it had a great balance of strength and spice. If you are looking for a mouthful of bloody without a salad this is your drink.

Although the pub is known for beer, this "cesar" is quite nice. Although it might not be too special, the mountain views make it worthwhile. The lack of spice is made up for by the selection of hot sauces you can add yourself.

Very basic salad; however, everything else about this cesar (bloody) was delightful. They use sriracha which adds a nice spice vs. Tabasco.

Quite possibly the best bloody I have had on the west coast. Actually had enough spice to taste and not get lost in the tomato/vodka flavor. The salad came with bacon which is a nice change from the normal un-exciting fare out here. Not sure if it was the bartender or the restaurant so I will need to try another.

This is one of the best bloodys I've experienced in Canada. You must take a gondola ride to the bar 3,000 feet above the parking lot. The cost for the gondola factored in to the cost of the bloody makes this quite expensive. However, with expansive views, good spice, and nice strength, this bloody is worth it.

This was the best airport bloody I have had. I ordered it "extra spicy" and it did not disappoint. Too often airport bloodys have a weakness, not here. Leave it to MN to know how to treat travelers to a nice bloody experience. Since this is in an airport the cost is high, but everything else more than makes up for it.

Made with chipotle vodka with a nice kick. Had to get a double or the bartender said it wasn't worth it. Standard salad and strong. Without the extra kick it would have been lacking. However, it's a pre-security bar in an airport so awesome.
