Dining out in Georgetown (SEA)

I've been exploring the restaurant/bar scene in Georgetown recently and have been pleasantly surprised. I'm looking for some more recommendations to add to my list. Here's what I've tried so far:

Smarty Pants - great sandwiches

Jules Mae - we tried to order food here but got completely ignored by the waitress

9 lb Hammer - great for happy hour beer

What else is worth trying? Here's the list of potential dining spots:

Via Tribunali - not too excited about this as the Cap Hill location's menu is all Italian. I don't like waiting for the wait staff to translate for me.

Cutting Board - sushi

Stellar Pizza

Marco Polo -dive bar

Are any of these places worth checking out? Am I missing anything special?

  1. Give Pig Iron BBQ a try. I've had both the catfish and fried green tomato sandwiches and they were both good. For sides, the beans and spinach-jalapeno-cheese glop are both great.

    It's a ways from the main Georgetown action, but a good place to start off.

      I also recommend Slim's next to pig iron for the chili.

    2. squid and ink serves vegetarian fare of sufficient quality and style to appeal to omnivores and in a wonderfully shabby setting - quite outside the norm even for vegetarians

        Georgetown Liquor Company is supposed to be pretty good on the vegetarian front too, isn't it?

      2. Stellar is definitely worth it.

        1. Marco Polo lounge does a great fried chicken. (they say they have great burgers too, but I've never had a chance to try)

          Slim's has good chili (i love their verde over mac & cheese), but I like their burgers alot too.

          Over toward South Park, there's a Mexican bar/restaurant that has a decent mole and handmade tortillas called Coliman

          I've always thought Pig Iron was overrated...

          1. Well, there's the Corson Building...
