“Great Local Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

I travel to Seattle several times each year and there are a lot of good restaurants. The Sand Point Grill is a really consistently good local place. I always have one or two meals there when I'm in town. It's a casual neighborhood place in the "U" district on Sand Point Way. One signature dinner dish is the fried chicken with mashed potatoes...great! But the Penn Cove steamed mussels are the best in town. You have to have the Penn Cove mussels! Good little deserts too. Good wine list, casual friendly service.

“Outstanding Neighborhood Resataurant. Gret Food and Very Nice decoration.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2011

We had a great dinner. Everything was delicious, the aspargus cream soup, the salad had a great sauce and was very flavorful. My wife had the salmon special which was really good and I also liked my entree. The hazelnut tart was very good as well with a just of orange flavor. The new owners have done a great job. We are sure to come back often.

“A neighborhood treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2011

We've eaten at Sand Point on the average of about once every 2 months for the last year or so. What was always a good, predictable and friendly neighborhood eatery stepped up a notch when the new owners took over last year. The fare is typically American with a continental touch (the divers scallops ... wow!). The food is always well prepared, generous portions and quite tasty. The service is good, but on nights when the place is slammed you need to be a little patient ... doh! And as long as they keep serving this level of good, hearty cuisine . . . well, it's liable to be slammed. So just chill out and enjoy really good food at fair prices.

“Truly don't bother.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2009

Truly terrible. Really. We try it every few years thinking it must have gotten better or it wouldn't still be in business, but no. Maybe after enough bad reviews they will get a new menu and new chef. It is a nice little place with ambiance. Too bad the menu choices and food are so poor.

“a terrible meal”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2007

I just had my worse restaurant meal in many years. First, there was a long wait (an hour) to get outr meals. The green salad was tasteless and the apple salad (for $9) was tiny. The special of the night was cod (for $21). Out came a tiny, cold piece on some beans. Just terrible. My son could not finish his hamburger due to some unpleasant sauce on it. The tables are very narrow...and don't work for people with long legs. We complained about the food and long wait and the owner gave us a $ 25 gift certificate. We won't use it....never will set place in that restaurant again!
