Picture a classic Oktoberfest celebration, but with the intensity turned down a few notches. That’s Fierabend in South Lake Union. Come here with some friends on a Friday night, pile into one of the long biergarten-style tables, share some boots of pilsner, and get some soft pretzels, brats, or the excellent fried pickle chips dunked in spicy remoulade.

100 Pound Clam
The seafood at 100 Pound Clam in South Lake is great. Just know you’ll be eating it next to a screaming two-year-old and a dad wearing Sperry’s.
Evergreens Salad South Lake Union
Evergreens is a Seattle chain of casual salad spots, and the South Lake Union one is extremely worthy of your lunch break.

For a grown-up biergarten, try Altstadt in Pioneer Square. It has giant communal tables, solid German food, boots of beer, and customers over 21.
Rhein Haus is your stereotypical biergarten in Capitol Hill, and it’s great. There’s a patio, glass boots for beer, and comically large pretzels.
