“Elegance in the East County”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Sockeye's provides dining elegance in the small town of Monroe. The food is always excellent, the customer service is attentive and friendly and, when the weather is nice, a lunch outside overlooking Lake Tye is a treat.

“Don't Waste your Time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

This place is over priced for what you get. You'd think that being on the Pacific coast, we'd have better and more fish than what is presented. The shrimp is overcooked and the salmon was just okay. Service is haphazard, even when the restaurant is nearly empty. We also had a Sunday brunch there recently and that was no better than an evening meal.

“Good views, good food, ok service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Although slightly high in it's prices, the meal itself is almost worth it. My wife an myself both had salads. She had the seafood cobb (they no longer have lox which my wife LOVES, they gave her cold salmon instead). She reported it was ok, just not as good as before. The size also wasn't as large as before. I had the shrimp and crab louis. It was actually quite good. The louis sauce tasted homemade and was quite good. The presentation was unusual as the lettuce was 4 wedges with the shrimp and crab in the middle. I had the cut the lettuce myself. Also the tomatoes were far from being ripe. Green and hard.
The dessert was mousse which was quite runny and pudding like. We switched to a chocolate cake which was awesome!
Will we be back? Yes, but not often.

“Great seafood and steaks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

LOVE Sockeyes, I personally think it's the best restaurant in Monroe.:) Whenever we have friends or family in from out of town we take them there. Consistent service and quality of food. Nice ambiance, set next to a man-made lake. I like to have their fresh fish, planked is always good or their high-hat top sirloin...tender and delicious.. They have happy hour there as well.1/2 price appetizers and drink specials. A big plus too, if you like to have wine with your dinner, they have 1/2 price on bottles of wine on Monday nights (at least the last time we were there they still had it). They have wine tasting dinners once a month...we've really been wanting to go try it!
