Great 4th July brunch

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.

This is a good restaurant in the downtown area of Kirkland, with a convenient parking lot behind the building and Milagros Cantina right next door (also delicious food) this is a treat for visitors to the Eastside.

busy place on the weekend but the bar is open and they serve the full menu. The cinnamon rolls are out of this world. Worth the calories. Corn beef hash was good but not the best I've ever had. Good omelette choices.

So the food is fine but this is the most incompetent wait staff I have ever seen. Big on talking to each other but not so interested in doing their jobs. The manager who allows this should get the boot, too. My crab cake was delicious but God help you if you want more coffee-or anything else-you should bring it... More
