You can get authentic Hawaiian food here such as fresh poke, garlic chicken, Spam musubi, and more. It’s all fresh and packed with flavor.
4. Skillet (N Gates)
Skillet has multiple locations all over Seattle so it’s no surprise that the popular diner-style restaurant can be found at the airport too. Their SeaTac location serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s the perfect place to order some comfort food and a Bloody Mary (if that’s your kind of thing) while you wait to board.
5. Lucky Louie Fish Shack (Central Terminal)
You can get sustainable Alaskan fish and chips at Lucky Louie in the Central Terminal. Their cheesecake-filled waffle fish are also a nice treat before a flight.
6. Ballard Brew Hall (D Gates)
Located near Gate D7, Ballard Brew Hall is probably your best option at SeaTac for grabbing one last craft beer before flying out of Seattle. In terms of food, they offer hearty menu options with local ingredients from breakfast to dinner.
7. Salty’s at the SEA (Central Terminal)
Salty’s in West Seattle is beloved for its seafood cuisine and waterfront view, and you can at least enjoy the former at its SeaTac location.
