Floyd’s Place
521 1st Ave N
Seattle, WA 98109
(206) 284-3542

Hours: Mon to Sat 11:30 a.m. – 2 a.m., Sun – 9 a.m. – 2 a.m.

What’s better than baseball? Baseball and barbeque, of course. Floyd’s Place has garnered a reputation for their pulled pork and turkey sandwiches, but they are overshadowed by Floyd’s shoestring fries, which have received far more attention than a barbeque place would assume. Game days means Floyd’s is packed, but that’s part of the fun of a sports bar, right? Lots of cold beer and ardent fans are two signs pointing to a good time.
