“Primo prime rib!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We were nearby for a work project and NorthSide came recommended by a local. The prime rib is excellent. It's what they're known for and I think the only reason you order something else is when they run out of prime rib. The dinner includes the soup/salad bar and coming from San Francisco, that salad bar was one of the saddest cuisine things I've seen a in a long time. Avoid the iceberg lettuce, avoid the Sysco prepared toppings, etc., don't bother perusing the options- there are none. Wait patiently (not that it took long) for your delicious slab of meat. It's even better when accompanied by the local(ish) brew.

“Fresh Oysters - delish! Plus, great Washington wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

We went with friends to this great restaurant which gives you a salad bar and clam chowder w/it, baked potato, and veggies. It's a great deal at about $20 with Washington wines plus California wines. The lobby also features their parent's art work, large and small decorative plates and serving platters and jewelry, all of which makes for a comfortable and delightful evening. They feature freshly caught seafood so the specials will change seasonally. The owner works there and their waitresses are the nicest gals I've ever met!
