I asked my hotel concierge where to go for great ribs in Seattle and they were right... The Frontier rooms are easy to miss but you should look for them on 1st Avenue, not far from the Pike Place market because the ribs I had...More

Hubby had pulled pork sandwich and I had smoked salmon burger. Yummy meats, greasy fries. Service was very slow, but they apologized and offered us to come back for a freebie later.
