These guys have been farming oysters since 1890, and their outpost in Pioneer Square is one of the best oyster bars in Seattle. If you want to mix things up, you could also get some dungeness crab or manilla clams. The tables along the wall are a nice a place to sit with a date, and if your date’s interest in Russell Wilson extends beyond his relationship with Ciara, you could also claim a few seats at the bar. The oysters taste just as good up there, and you can both watch the game.
