One of my very favorite places to dine in Seattle! No, really. The past few years, Safeco Field has been transformed to a dining destination featuring locally sourced foods. High fives to chef Ethan Stowell for helping to make that happen. As a consultant, he has connected the awesome crew from Centerplate with purveyors including Taylor Shellfish, Carlton Farms and Painted Hills. Mariners fans can now get oyster po-boys, smoky barbecue, even tongue tacos! Those are available at the super-chill new Edgar's Cantina and Home Run Porch, named in honor of the team's most-beloved player, Edgar Martinez. Sure, there are still popcorn, peanuts and Crackerjack -- as well as the stinky garlic fries -- but hip, hip hooray for so many amazing options. Plus, the Moose! Love the Mariners Moose, yes I do!!
Best in Baseball – I have been to nine of the top ten parks listed. Not Miller Park yet. SAFECO Field is number one. Coors is a very close second (not surprisingly since Seattle mostly copied Coors Field) PNC would be next if they actually had food worth eating and beer worth drinking.
Go Mariners! – I've never been a sports fan, but when I went to Safeco I became one. I yearn to ignorantly watch the game in person, smell the malange of foods, drink beer and indulge in the whole American experience. Safeco holds a magic that shouldn't be missed. The seats lack leg room. That is the only drawback, however, the cleanliness and general glee of the fans easliy make up for it.
My all time favorite – I love this field. It's what Baseball is all about. From the great veiw everywhere to the fun things to do and see, It's a place Seattle can be proud of. I've been to many fields through out the U.S. and most recently Bank One in Az. Safeco is my all time favorite.
SAFECO is first class! – An incredible stadium for an incredible team. When the sun is out, there is not a better place to watch a game anywhere. This is a first class stadium and everytime I am in town from LA, I will always watch a game.
Safeco hits the spot – Being a huge Seattle Mariners fan, I love going to Safeco Field. Even though I live 7 hours away from Seattle I still make the trip quite often because going to Safeco is such a pleasant experience. The atmosphere is fun, friendly, and safe. The seating is great and you have an excellent view from anywhere in the stadium. There is even a no alcohol section. Parking isn't even a hassle, you can get as close as 100 feet of the ballpark. The concessions at Safeco are superb. You will experience one of the largest varieties of Seattle cuisine and also the some of the best. Safeco Field is my absolute favorite place in Seattle and I would recommend it to everyone.
The Fans! The Team! The Safe! – I have been to over 100 games. Almost Every ticket I have had a diffrent seat. I think that so far I have not had a bad seat. I think it is the atmospher! The Fans! The Team!
WOW! – I can't even think of another way to say it other than WOW what a beautiful stadium when the sun is out.
Good place to take the boss – Safeco's always a blast. When the boss came to town recently (the guy writing about sushi at the park, two comments down), taking him to see an M's game was a good way to show him what Seattle's really about, after the obligatory trip to the Space Needle.
Best ballpark on the West coast – Safeco is a great place to take in a game for two reasons. 1: The stadium is great--it has a wide open concourse and there aren't many bad seats in the house. 2: The fans in Seattle really get behind the team. Here's hoping they take down the Yankees this year.
Sushi at Safeco – I'll admit, it felt kinda weird to be eating with chopsticks at the old ballgame -- but the sushi was pretty good. And the next night, I went for a teriyaki bento box. Save a few bucks, though, and grab lunch or dinner outside the park -- then pack it in and enjoy during the game.
