The 39 year tradition carries on at one of the Northwest's most revered neighborhood establishments. Join us for classic comfort food, prepared from the freshest ingredients, served by a friendly wait staff that makes out-of-towners feel like regulars, and regulars feel like home. The Sunday brunch with our classic Eggs Benedict isn't just a menu item - it's a local institution. Or drop in for a drink in front of the 114-year old carved mahogany bar back, and imagine the stories it could tell you. The original brickwork and cozy fireplaces are still here. So is the longstanding tradition of great food with unparalleled friendly service. We intend to keep it up for at least another 39 years to come. You're welcome anytime, and we'll keep the fire going for you!

Go-To Place

Driving through Kirkland after an errand, and stopped by this place as it has never disappointed us. And it came through again. Had the fish and chips and some of the best I have had. And always a nice ambiance.

We haven't had really good experiences at Hector's in the past, though nothing completely untenable. But we decided to try them for brunch, and oh, my goodness, the Eggs Benedict! The Hollandaise sauce was by far the best I've ever had (creamy, delicious), and I've eaten this in many places. Worth EVERY penny!!!

So much cod...cheaper I guess. Dropped in for lunch with 2 associates and voila...Halibut F&C. Home run....and GREAT !! Good service (Cornelia), good food and a reasonable WA wine selection by the glass. The fact that the place has been around for > 20 years says something for it. Happy to go back next time in Kirkland

Had a friends dinner Friday night at Hectors'. It had been over 20 years since the old days of bar hopping and the noise level was increased by a large number of very small children who were out to dinner with their parents after 8pm. Needless to say, it was impossible to carry on a conversation especially when the kids... More

Good American food, pleasant surroundings. Good place for lunch or dinner, maybe a little pricey for the setting and ambience.

Hectors has excellent breakfast and burgers. If you are looking for fine dining this is not it. Yet, the food is solid, service has been excellent over the years and the dessert is rock solid. Try the Big Kahuna. Vanilla bean and espresso ice cream, fudge, and macadamia nuts. A family favorite!

Servers were friendly, food was fine, average family dining. If you like eating at Applebees-type restaurants you'll like Hectors. Wouldn't be my first choice in Kirkland though.

I had the grilled salmon. Salmon was unfortunately a bit dry, but the accompanying salad was good. Went to Ben & Jerry's down the road for dessert so can't comment there.

We found Hector's to be a comfortable, reasonably priced restaurant with good options for kids. The food won't awe you, but it is good and the service is on top of it. There are two things we liked that push Hector's from 3 stars into the 4 star category: 1) The atmosphere is comfortable for families. It's not too loud.... More

Haven't been here for breakfast in several years but recalled them having top notch breakfasts. Place was busy on a weekday morning. Very nice grouping of choices on the menu. I opted for their CFS and was not disappointed - crisply fried steak, covered in (thin) sausage gravy - but loaded with sausage! Neither steak nor hashbrowns were oily. Marvelous.... More
