It's been over a decade since I've been here and it feels like it was yesterday - nothing has changed. I'm not a big meat eater, but I have fond memories of the Peanut Butter burger and this was my quest - not disappointed.

This place is easily overlooked as it is located in a small building. It is worth the stop. The burgers here are amazing. They are unique such as the peanut butter & bacon. Also, the Jack Daniels Chili is terrific especially on a cold, winter day. During the summer I suggest sitting outside.

It was a nice day when we went here and the place was busy. Staff was nice. The food was OK, nothing really special, but you could tell they tried.

We used to come here a lot but the burgers are not what they used to be. My favorite is the blue cheese burger (you can even get the blue cheese on your fries). The restaurant has a very small indoor footprint (the owner once told us it is technically the smallest restaurant in the state with a full liquor... More

The spot to be to watch the boaters, the cruisers, the sightseers. The staff is fantastic, the food is worth the wait that you may have to endure on a perfect summer day.

A trip to The Slip is a must for anyone looking for the best burgers in Kirkland! Succulent, tasty and freshly cooked every time - with or without fries you will not be disappointed. Other dishes also available on an extensive menu along with wines, beers and spirits. Great staff and great atmosphere!

When you crave a decent burger, beer and fries without breaking the bank, this is a popular and good spot in a super location near the waterfront. Our favorite sandwich is the tasty grilled mushroom burger, but the regular burgers are fine and wildly popular if that's your craving. I really do admire the fries which are crispy and perfect,...

This is a fine place to enjoy a casual meal outdoors without spending too much. The location near the waterfront is the main attraction, but the burgers we ordered--chicken teriyaki and the house-made vegetarian--were tasty and generously sized. A small selection of draft beers at a reasonable price. We'll return another time for the happy hour wine by the glass.

Great place in the summer for sitting outside (usually a wait for a table) and enjoying a great hamburger. All the sides are great too. Not the most healthy, but a wonderful treat, once in a while.
