206 Burger Company is the best burger spot that nobody’s talking about. Not only are the classics excellent here, but the milkshakes are perfect (get the Oreo), the fries strike the ideal balance between crispy and floppy, and the special sauce is kind of smoky. There are also some Indian-leaning items you probably didn’t see coming that are really tasty (like the masala-spiced chicken sandwich). We hope you’re a Seattle sports fan, because you can’t really escape the explosion of local team memorabilia in here. Go Hawks.

Elliott’s Oyster House
There’s no doubt that Elliot’s Oyster House is fratty, but the excellent patio and quality seafood means it’s still a good place to hang downtown.
Shaker And Spear
Besides being in a highly attractive space, Shaker + Spear also has excellent seafood. It’s a great spot for a nicer group dinner in Belltown.
