Earlier this summer, the Salesforce Tower in Bellevue got an exciting new addition: its very own Sam’s Tavern, awarded this year’s best burger in the state by The Daily Meal. It’s the fourth location in Washington, the first of which opened on Capitol Hill in 2012. Sam’s Tavern is named after the owner of the very first Red Robin restaurant, which opened in the U District in the 1940s, and its owner, James Snyder, is the son of the first Red Robin franchisee.
The Bellevue restaurant is open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 12 a.m. and Friday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. If you go, don’t miss their Bloody Mary, and check out their rotating draft beer selection.
