The Gerald

The Gerald is a restaurant/bar located in the heart of the Ballard Historic District.

Featuring classic, hand-crafted cocktails & comfort foods with a modern twist, The Gerald invites you to unwind in their"easy-on-the-eyeballs & quick-with-the-highballs" mid-century modern-inspired space.

Think Gourmet Mac & Cheese; Truffle Popcorn; a Grilled Cheese menu featuring local cheeses & flavor pairings; Sliders; Deconstructed Chicken Pot Pie; and Bacon-Wrapped.....well...ANYTHING! (WHAT isnt' d'lish wrapped in bacon!?!)

Think nostalgic cocktails of yesteryear - Sloe Gin Fizz; Singapore Slings; Sidecars; Gimlets; Highballs; & more!

At The Gerald, your drink can be half full or half empty – as long as there’s booze in it. :)

It's Bloody Mary Month! Come enjoy our Ballard Bloody Mary made with bakon vodka (bacon infused potato vodka) and our house made Bloody Mary mix. Bloody Mary's are really about the snacks, so we garnished ours with house pickles, and fried cheese curds :)
