Went to listen to the band that was playing, but wound up having a very nice dinner also. Only complaint, bread not included with meal.

Great music and tasty food sounds like an awesome night, Ann! Glad the corned beef hit the spot. You'll have to come check out the music again soon. Slainte, Ben, Owner More

Having spent three weeks in Kirkland with many restaurants from which to choose, the Rover was favorite. It had all the trimmings of any Irish pub in the US and added a terrific menu and a large selection of beers on tap including Smithwick's and Harp. A most relaxing atmosphere and a relatively large menu allowed a diner to choose... More

Good location at Downtown waterfront. Good food & atmosphere. Live music 5 days a week. It's a hub for local soccer funs

The food here is very good. I had had the open face steak sandwich with fries. The prices are average, but a good value for the quantity and quality of food you get. There is a nice partial view of Lake Washington in the back room and a large closed off dining room for special occasions. I don't drink beer,... More

This is one of the few places in Kirkland you can go to without getting all dressed up and just be comfortable. The lamb burger is definitely my favorite on the menu. I did try the alaskan sockeye sandwich and it was just a little too bland for my taste. Could not really taste the curry powder or the mint... More

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.
