We were in Redmond and needed a place to watch the World Cup. Wilde Rover was recommended by some locals as they knew they had a big screen TV (and knew that we were looking for a European pub vibe). Wilde Rover turned out to be fantastic!! First of all, thanks to them for showing all the matches, even the... More

We had a great time with you guys! If you find yourself back in Redmond, you're welcome here anytime. We're just glad you found us to watch the matches in true European style. I'll have to share your compliments with Chelsea and our chefs -- sounds like everyone was really on their game when you came by! Slainte, Ben Owner More

Perhaps it was a bad night, but service was slow (except in getting me my pint of Guinness, which was extraordinarily fast, which is kind of unusual, but I don't mind that part), and it took about 40 minutes to get food. For part of the time, there was a trivia DJ doing a trivia thing. The trivia thing was... More

Thanks for coming out and giving us a shot! Sounds like you had some great food, but I'm disappointed that you didn't think the service lived up to the rest of your meal. It can get pretty hectic in here on trivia nights, so I'd love for you all to come back on another night when it's a little more... More

Met friends here for Happy Hour - 4-6pm and 10-midnight. Not a lot to choose from, and was told to try the basket of cod and chips. Not a real fish fan, and this serving simply solidified that. The fish was greasy and too heavily battered. The "chips" were tolerable but arrived cold. Maybe they taste better hot? Wouldn't know,... More

I'm disappointed that you didn't enjoy your meal with us more. We hope most everyone can find a new favorite among our 15+ inexpensive happy hour items, but if not our regular dining menu is available until 10pm, too. Since you aren't a fan of our fish, I'd love to have you back to try something that's more your style... More

Good service and prices. Rode my bike down for a beer and it was a great atmosphere. Would love to try the deck in the summer.

You'll definitely have to come back and try out our deck now that the weather has turned the corner! Biking followed by beer sounds like an awesome summer afternoon. I'm glad the service and atmosphere were both great when you came by. Have you had a chance to try our food yet? Our tasty burgers are the perfect compliment to... More

I had the misfortune of losing a large amount of money at this establishment. I suspect that the waitress found it and neglected to turn it in. In an effort to find a resolution or at least an apology, I'm getting stone-walled at every level, bar manager and ultimately the owner. Not to mention the waitress is lying about events... More

They serve good Irish beer and their curried cheese sauce with fries are out of this world. A good place to have a pleasent evening.

The Wild Rover has decent food, but that is where everything comes to an end. The service at Wilde Rover in Kirkland is unacceptable. Our server never once checked in with us to see if we were enjoying our meal, made no small talk (conversations were only I need to see your ID, do you want to order food,ect). The... More

I went with a friend on a Saturday night, we didn't make any reservations so we had to wait for 20 minutes. The place was pretty crowded, everybody was talking, some music was playing so you had to speak a little loud so that the other person could here you, but this is typical for an Irish pub. The menu... More

This weekend we attended a surprise birthday party here for a good friend of ours. I'm not sure what the capacity for its party room is, but it was certainly adequate for 50-75 persons. The buffet-style meal included corn beef, cabbage, shepherds pie, and, of course, a cake. The quality of the food was very good, as well as the... More
