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!

Hector's is like Cheers for us, a place you go that you know will come through for you and everybody knows your name - or at least your face. The food is good and reasonably priced. The interior dining area is in three parts with booths in one area and tables in that plus the other two. There is... read more

We were in Kirkland for the 2015 Junior World Series. Our team was the East team. We got nothing but phenomenal service. Great food,great service, and great drinks. About 30 people showed up to this buffet style dinner in a private room and we were all very happy with everything.

If you are an Eggs Benedict lover you won't want to miss these. Eggs just right, English muffin was toasted just right but the best part is their hollandaise sauce, Perfect. I've never had better. A really nice breakfast restaurant and I'm anxious to try lunch there. Service was good put not 5 star so I'm giving it a 4.5.

Had brunch before the parade and enjoyed sitting on the patio with the dog. Food was fast, efficient and tasty. I would return.

Friendly folks. Good service. Generous portions. All good . . . right?! Except if you want your pup with you - you sit in the back - yes - in the back - by the parking lot. Could have easily been more accomodating. Don't claim to be pet friendly when you aren't. Just tell it like it is. What a... More

Hector's is a casual eatery in Kirkland Washington with really excellent food. The appetizers during Happy Hour are a really good value and the variety is great. Try the Ahi, hummus and mini grilled cheese! Service is attentive and the location near the water is sweet!

having spent 5 days in Kirkland we sampled a lot of different places and menues. Our 'Best Breakfast' award goes to Hector's hands down. Nice atmosphere, great & friendly service, food was very good, promptly served and reasonably priced. Didn't have the opportunity to try lunch or dinner, but would go back here whenever we return to Kirkland.

Hectors can usually be relied on for great comfort food but after visiting recently, i can see that the quality of the restaurant has really gone down hill. The place is still ok but there are much better places in kirkland. I used to always go there for their fantastic reuben or crab cakes but these are no longer on... More

We stop by sometimes as we walk to Lake Washington. The food is decent and the service is good. Love to just sit, drink and watch the crowd walk by.
