  • Skillet

    Skillet

    Edgar Martinez Dr S and Occidental Ave S
    Skillet makes its way around the greater Seattle area, but on Tuesdays it blesses Sodo with its lunch offerings. Call it roach coach chic, these are not you typical cantina truck offerings; fennel roasted pork sammy, grilled chicken with lemon zested couscous and that Montreal staple poutine, fries covered in gravy and topped with cheese.

  • Safeco Field Diamond Club

    Safeco Field Diamond Club

    Safeco Field1250 1st Ave S
    Safeco Field, home to the Seattle Mariners, is one of the finest ballparks in the country. Right field bleacher seats enjoy a panoramic view of downtown and Elliott Bay. The train whistle during the game creates a special atmosphere just like cheering for a homerun. The stadium offers anything from traditional ballpark dogs and the famous garlic fries to fine gourmet fare and local beers. The aroma of food is everywhere inside the park. There couldn't be a better way to spend a summer evening with friends and family in Seattle.

  • Marination Mobile

    Marination Mobile

    Edgar Martinez Dr S & Occidental Ave S
    Yet another cantina truck, with a cuisine all their own; a cross between Korean and Hawaiian (Kalbi Beef, Spicy Pork, Miso Ginger chicken and Kimchi) mostly served in a corn tortilla for excellent portability. Oh, and of course, spam is represented on the menu! Marination Mobile is new to the scene having started operations in July 2009, but have been posting their trials and tribulations since early spring. They also suggest that you follow them on Twitter for updates.

  • Western Bridge

    Western Bridge

    3412 4th Ave S
    Th-Sa noon-6PM. Free. While it may seem a odd location for a modern art gallery, amid the light industrial and retail sprawl the makes up the bulk of Sodo and a stone's throw away from Qwest and Safeco fields, perhaps it isn't after all. They make great use of warehouse they came to occupy, never changing anything to take away from the fact it is a warehouse. They host museum quality exhibits and, especially for this neighborhood, a unique, cultural outing.

    2445 4th Ave S
    This quiet, unassuming mom and pop place, quite simply has the best doughnuts in town.

  • The Corson Building

    5609 Corson Ave S
    The Corson Building is trying very hard to develop a rural setting in a very urban surrounding. This is a very chef inspired and driven restaurant and your only opportunity for fine dining in Georgetown. Dinner is served at certain times (check website) and at communal tables. You generally get to choose between two entrees and are left to the devices of the chef for the rest of the meal which is served 'family style' on large platters and/or in bowls passed between diners. Wine pairings and flights of wine are offered for an additional cost.

    Stellar Pizza & Ale

    5513 Airport Way S
    M 11AM-11PM, Tu-F 11AM-midnight, Sa 3PM-midnight, Su 3PM-11PM. A hip, fun and boisterous pizza joint that produces some seriously good pies. Don't overlook the appetizers, the hummus platter is particularly good. They have some decent sandwiches and salads, too. Has a full bar with several beers on tap and a reasonable wine list.
    Beacon Hill
  • Alki Tavern

    Alki Tavern

    1321 Harbor Ave SW
    Their motto 'the 10 cent bar with a million dollar view' might be a little harsh. The Alki Tavern is a rustic, no nonsense watering hole to hang out with friends over a pitcher of PBR. They have some fun specials, Tuesday $1 Wimpy burgers and $1 tacos on Thursday to mention a few.

  • Salty's on Alki

    1936 Harbor Ave SW
    Situated on West Seattle's popular Alki Beach, Salty's offers a wide variety of seafood and steaks. The restaurant offers one of the most amazing views of downtown Seattle and is a popular hot spot with local celebrities. The food can range from catch of the day, various poultry dishes, or top sirloin. Reviews of the food itself and the service are mixed, surprising considering it's one of the most expensive restaurants in West Seattle. When the sun is shining or downtown is lit up, there is no better view of downtown Seattle.

  • Pyramid Alehouse

    1201 First Ave S
    M-Th 11AM-10PM, F-Sa 11AM-11PM, Su 11AM-9PM. Strategically located across from Quest and Safeco fields, very popular indeed, especially on game nights. They specialize in their own microbrews, although, at this point they are a pretty big brewery. They offer the classics, with their excellent Hefeweizen and IPA as well as some rotating seasonal varieties. Food is your typical pub grub; burgers, sandwiches and fried food. They do offer a selection of salads and other light fare to round out the menu. 21 and older only.
    Industrial District
  • Pig Iron Bar-B-Q

    5602 1st Ave S
    Tu-F 11AM-8PM, Sa noon-8PM. A busy lunch spot on weekdays. The Pig offers up some great 'Que', the brisket is especially good, with your choice of sauce on the side. Don't overlook the sides including jalapeno/spinach casserole and cornbread stuffing, as well as the more traditional slaw, potato salad and some seriously good beans. Full bar.
    Georgetown
  • Pecos Pit BBQ

    2260 1st Ave S
    Brave the long lines for one of the best pulled pork sandwiches in town. This is a very popular Sodo lunch spot for local workers, so going after 1:30PM might lessen your wait. From their ordering window they offer different degrees of heat in their sauces, be forewarned: their hot is hot. 'Spike it' if you want a sausage link with your sandwich. Know what you want before it's your turn, so you don't hold up the rest of the line. Make sure that you get a fork and plenty of napkins, you're going to need them.

  • West Seattle Bridge

    West Seattle Bridge

    W Seattle Bridge
    The high-level West Seattle Bridge is a cantilevered segmental bridge that serves as the primary connection between West Seattle and the rest of the city. It was built between 1981 and 1984 after the previous bascule bridge was deemed inoperable as a result of being struck by the Chavez freighter in 1978. The West Seattle Bridge was renamed as the Jeanette Williams Memorial Bridge on July 6, 2009, in honor of Jeanette Williams, who served on the Seattle City Council from 1970 to 1989, and was instrumental in securing political support for the construction of the bridge. However, all directional signs continue to carry the name, "West Seattle Bridge."
