Culinary Kudos
It seems that every time the Swedish Club is mentioned in local media, it has something to do with food and drink. Not that we're complaining. Seattle Metropolitan reviewed our julbord and lauded us for offering the city's best Swedish happy hour, and the Ballard News-Tribune liked it too. Zagat placed our smörgås (sandwiches) among Seattle's top nine. The Seattle Weekly also found some nice things to say about our smörgås, while the P-I reported on our Swedish meatball cook-off. And of course, our pancake breakfasts have gotten so much attention, they're practically a PR campaign unto themselves.
