WHY HERE: Ballard was once known as a Nordic-heavy fisherman’s haven. Tucked away among the modern craft beer dens and the trendy Ballard Sunday farmers market is this throwback family-friendly dive that has been family-run since 1971. Diner-style banquets and a spartan marine-themed lounge are perfect for a mainstream pint and a patty melt or a bracing shot of aquavit.

WHY NOW: Finding old-school Ballard isn’t so easy these days. Sometimes, you just want a simple drink and a meal. Plus, you might spy cast members of “Deadliest Catch” hanging about.
