Raney’s Bar & Grill

At Raney’s Bar and Grill you can find meats that were slow smoked over Washington state fruit woods for a new level of PNW flavor. Originally starting as a mobile establishment by the Raney siblings, their success led to the opening of their brick and mortar restaurant located at 3923 Airport Way South in 2017. This local favorite features a full bar with beers on tap, an outdoor patio and plenty of opportunities to tune into your favorite Seattle teams. While you’re there be sure to try out a tasty BBQ sandwich, one of their 1/2 pound burgers, or a platter with your choice of meat and two sides.
