Traveling with a flight layover is not always an enjoyable experience. For travelers that have an hour or more to kill at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, you are in luck. SeaTac, the nickname local residents have given the airport, has a few nice, yet reasonably priced places to stop off and have a beer or mixed drink and a bite to eat. These are the best airport bars in Seattle.

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport – Concourse B

Casa del Agave is a Mexican restaurant with a full bar, perfect for a solid bite and a stout drink. It is best known for serving reasonably priced drinks and a variety of Mexican dishes. The wait staff is friendly, attentive and the bartender serves your drinks at full strength. The most popular drink served here is called the ultimate margarita, but you will also find a variety of draft beers served in over-sized mugs, shots and a number of delicious mixed drinks. If you would like to dine in house or place an order to go and take with you on your flight, try the chicken, salmon or vegetarian enchiladas.

Considered the best sports bar at the Seattle-Tacoma Airport, the Sports Page Pub is the “it” place to have a drink and catch a game on one of its many TVs. Its full-service bar offers a variety of wines, beer and mixed drinks. The Sports Page Pub is favored over other airport sports bars due to its quick service, friendly and laid-back atmosphere, and its proximity to many of the airport’s gates and baggage claim.
