When we Seattleites are stuck in the middle of the work week with temperatures reaching into the 90s, there really isnât anything better than splurging a bit by going out and dining at a great restaurant with a cool breeze complimented by a beautiful sunset. From seafood to burgers, here are some of the best places in town to enjoy the dog days of summer.
Located on the north side of Lake Union, Ivarâs Salmon House is unique in that the restaurant is housed in a replica of a Northwest Native American longhouse that serves alder-smoked seafood and chicken dishes in a warm atmosphere. This is great for the winter, but for the summer, enjoy dining on the outdoor deck with views of boats going back and forth along Lake Union with the Seattle skyline in background. There is also an outdoor Fish Bar offering more casual-styled seafood (fish and chips) that will make a smaller dent in your wallet with the same view.
When you need a burger, this is the place to go. Located in the artsy Fremont neighborhood, Uneeda Burger features and all-weather patio in addition to their regular dining room. Nothing fancy here â just picnic tables â but thatâs all you really need for delicious meal of burger greatness and sides of tater tots, onion rings, hand-pulled shakes made with Snoqualmie ice cream, etc.
Elemental Wood Fired Pizza is a favorite with families. Instead of crayons and paper to keep the young ones busy, this place provides the tikes with a mound of dough for they to shape however they see fit and then they can snack on their own creations afterwards. They recommend pulling up a chair on their patio, grab a cold one and enjoy âthe best happy hour in town.â If this location doesnât suit you, they have to two others at Columbia Center and Tacoma.
This is just one of the Dukeâs seven locations, but the South Lake Union location is a favorite of many. Itâs one of the chainâs first restaurants and has great outdoor seating right off the lake. Later this year, Dukes will move up the lake to a larger location with a larger patio to match plus an additional second story deck. Dukes serves up âcrazy good foodâ including Copper River Salmon, Crab âUnâ Cakes (made of 80% crab), their own âappeteasers and award-winning chowder. Mondays make for another good reason to stop by â bottles of wine are half price.
Skillet Diner 1400 East Union St., Seattle, WA 98122 - (206) 512-2001
After years of serving customers out of their Airstream food truck, Skillet opened their new diner in Capitol Hill in 2011. They describe their place as âa neighborhood joint doing our best to make the place feel relaxed, service attentive and easy, and the food approachable yet focused.â The tables outside make for a great place to people watch while consuming dishes made from fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.

Itâs been a long time coming, but finally the old viaduct is coming
"One of their team members stopped by my house on Lake Sammamish just two days before my property was to be sold at auction. I told them that I was under water and couldnât sell. He insisted that I speak with Ky DeWald and Adam Mickelson to see if there was anything that could be done. I finally agreed. They were able to not only stop my auction and get me another 90 days in my house but also put over $125,000.00 in my pocket and sold my house for $1,550,000.00!!! I couldnât be happier!!! Thanks guys for all the help!"
