In addition to pumpkin patches, corn mazes, and hay rides, the onset of fall also brings the start of football season. Though this year may look different for sports fans, you can root for your favorite teams safely and still have fun with socially distanced game viewings at bars and restaurants and with take-home food and drink specials. Whether you want to cheer for the Huskies, the Hawks, or the Cougs, we've rounded up a list of places where you can watch the games with brunch specials, all-day happy hour, flat-screen TVs, and more, plus specials available for pickup. For more ideas, check out our full in-person dining directory, our takeout & delivery directory, our guide to where to try fresh hop beers in Seattle, and our guide to where to celebrate Oktoberfest.

Note: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, seating and availability may be limited. We recommend making reservations in advance and/or showing up early to secure a spot.
