Okay, the food wasn't anything to write home about, it is still pretty good. Add the view and pretty good turns into really good! We have eaten there before, down in the bar/grill, and enjoyed it more. This time we had lunch; the food was just pretty good. Next time we will go to Pike St Market for lunch.

NOTE: I know that the date posted says August 2014, but we visited August 2012, but we never wrote a review about our... experience. I finally decided to write a review and warn others. First, we arrived at the restaurant and we were seated right away. My wife and I used to love this chain, and we were looking forward... More

Loved the oysters .. we came for a late night dinner on arrival in Seattle. Perhaps we were late so service was a little gruff but we enjoyed the meal, and have to say the oysters (we tried all three kinds) were the highlight for us

This was a disappointment. It's a chain so we thought it's a safe bet on the food quality. Wrong - the food was pretty bad. Steak was overcooked and the fish tasted terrible. Either the food is not fresh or they need a new cook. Even the bread was stale. Our kids hardly touched their food and we had to... More

It was a sunny lunch meal and the view was great. Well worth the trouble to find parking. I recommend it for a place to just eat and watch the boats.

My wife and I did one of the Seattle stairway walks from Lake Union up Queen Ann. Some fabulous views. At the end we returned to Lake Union and ate at this restaurant. The service was great as was the food and the view. My wife wanted a crab louie but it wasn't on the menu. Our server went to... More
