Seattle Restaurant Openings

Full Tilt’s Ballard Location Opens Today

Prepare to revel in beer floats and pinball.

Seattle gains another Full Tilt…this time in Ballard.

Today Full Tilt Ice Cream unleashes its brilliant triumvirate of pinball, beer and creative frozen delights on Ballard. The shop at 5453 Leary Ave NW opens at noon.

Owner Justin Cline says Full Tilt Ballard will be “a lot more pinball-focused” than the White Center, Columbia City and University District locations. Right now 12 pinball machines await patrons, including this one, and Cline says he’ll ultimately have 15. Not to worry, there are arcade games too.

The new location is the largest Full Tilt yet, and will offer bottled beer and oh-so-trendy cans, including the wares of new Ballard brewery Hilliard’s. On the non-alcoholic side of things, look for Dry Soda and retro-tastic soft drink Moxie.
