The theme at Messhall? Glorified summer camp food, with the intention to improve upon All-American comfort food favorites—turkey kale chili is served with fresh cornbread, smoked corn fritters are garnished with a poblano and pumpkin seed romesco, and the fried chicken sandwich does justice to the recent dish of the moment. Oyster fanatics will be happy to know that MessHall has an excellent raw bar, stocked with plenty of bivalves, ceviche, shrimp cocktails and tuna tartare.

I am a big fan of Mess Hall for many reasons. They have a large and impressive drink menu that has options that range from simple to adventurous. Their food menu is equally as vast, with many shareable dishes that can satisfy a group. Every time I come here though, I most look forward to the great oysters they serve. Whenever I am heading to a show at the Greek, I try and stop by Mess Hall beforehand. It's an excellent place for a meal before your concert.

This is a great brunch spot!  It feels like a classier version summer camp in the Pacific Northwest without the Birkenstocks.

I love coming here before seeing a show at the Greek. It has some of the best weeknight specials that go way beyond happy hour: $12 burger-and-beer on Mondays, $1 oysters and tacos on Tuesdays (+ $5 beers!), and Thursdays are throwback-themed cocktails at throwback prices. Speaking of cocktails, they're solid here. If it's not too busy, put your trust in the bartenders, name a type of booze, and ask them to make you something fun. The food could be a little better, but it's a great neighborhood spot.
