Two things cannot be denied: Seattle loves its food, and Seattle loves it sports teams. Since the stadium's inaugural game on July 15, 1999, Safeco Field has gained a reputation locally, regionally and nationally as a fantastic setting for baseball. Why all the hype? A combination of sweeping views of the Seattle skyline and glimpses of awesome sunsets that dazzle above the Puget Sound. Oh, and we mustn't forget the main views that draw us inâ€“the sight of the Major League Baseball action going on below. Let's go, Mariners!
Safeco Field boasts a central, urban home, located not far from the buzzing downtown scene and even closer to happening zones like the International District and Pioneer Square. Here at 10Best, we've gathered a list of venues where sports fans can enjoy delicious grub, before or after the on-field excitement. While some eateries serve up casual dishes like BBQ, burgers, tacos and to-go sandwiches, others flaunt fine-dining options like steak, oysters, salmon and alternative local delicacies.
Since kids are often in tow during sporting outings, many of these venues offer family-friendly settings. Other options cater more to the 21-and-over crowd, pouring local brews and exotic whiskies to keep spirits high (whether the home team wins or loses).
