We're nuts about fried potatoes, especially at these fine venues.
Steaks are legendary, prime beef cooked with care in chef Eric Hellner's kitchen, accompanied by something from the award-winning wine list. Expensive and worth it. If you're on a budget, go sit in the bar for happy hour. The burger is terrific and the bartenders offer welcome pairing advice.
Most University of Washington students come in to this friendly, family-owned pub for the awesome, ever-changing lineup of beer, but the sausage is the true star here. It's all made in-house and grilled just right. Try one of the sausage burgers like the Ragin' Cajun, topped with caramelized onions and peppers. For more heat, order a cup of gumbo on the side.
Terrific location for fish and chips, near the most vibrant working harbor in the city. Don't miss the blackberry pie.
It's an institution, this local burger chain that prides itself on using fresh ground beef and making hand-cut fries. So cheap! Gotta love the family friendly vibe.
A handsome downtown dining room that does righteous by all things from the sea. Hit the oyster happy hour, indulge in some locally sourced Dungeness crab. Or, slide into one of the comfy seats and study up the lunch/dinner menu. Chef Kevin Davis has Southern roots and he often shares. If they're on the menu, don't miss the fried green tomatoes.
There are many good reasons this place is jam-packed almost all the time: sandwiches with inventive toppings, fries done just right and a salted caramel milkshake that'll make you go mmmm! The menu also showcases local, grass-fed beef, elk and a surprisingly good veggie burger.
