Great atmosphere plus good food!

Sunday morning is busy so book ahead or go in the bar! Super atmosphere and service with a delightful menu. it feels more like an English pub than a restaurant in the middle of Kirkland.I like the fact that the plate is not enormous but just right with a variety of menu items.

I love Hector's. They do a great job of serving up good food in a great central Kirkland location. We have been bringing our family here for years and it has something for everyone. A true favorite is the Big Kahuna dessert - an ice cream pie with macadamia nuts and hot fudge. My favorite is the salmon salad -... More

I've been to Hector's for bfast more times than I can count, and the croque madame is hands down one of the best breakfasts I've ever had (my friends swear by the protein power). In addition, the bartenders/servers are personable, competent, and attentive, while the bar itself has enough tvs to catch a game from nearly any location. Hector's will... More

The service, the food, the ambiance, it's all excellent! We were there on Saturday evening with a group of 12! (this sometimes presents challenges) We all had dinner and drinks, and I must say not one person was disappointed in their dinners!! Our server was on top of her game, we were treated like royalty! I can't wait to go... More

Hectors has a comfortable upscale pub feel to it, with booths and tables as well as bar seating. You'll find classic dishes with a little something extra, like crab in the mac and cheese. I enjoyed the crab chowder along with a Little Lake salad, while my friend had the spaghetti with meatballs. All dishes were tasty and satisfying. The... More

We had their queso as an appetizer and didn't bother ordering anything else and just left. Their queso was like a chid had layered kraft singles in a bowl and left it out sitting for about 15 minutes before serving. It was disgusting. Never going back. What a waste of money and time.

Went for Sunday brunch and ordered the Eggs Florentine. We've eaten here once before and were served luke warm food, so we were leery, with good reason. Once again the food came out barely warm. Obviously it was done well before my hubbys food was finished cooking, cause his was nice and hot. I didn't want it nuked cause the... More

Delicious hot meals for two friends on cold and rainy night. I wanted a martini with something different/sweet, so the server suggested Chambord with a twist. Yummy. I will go back again someday. Tip - finding the parking lot was a challenge on a rainy night - Lake Street South is a divided road, so you have to drive past,... More

Very popular for business lunches, so it can be crowded and somewhat noisy. We had mussels in cream wine sauce (excellent).The meatloaf, the flatiron steak salad and .the chowder are all good. Service is very friendly, Parking can be a problem in downtown Kirkland ; there is a city lot, on the east side of the street at the end... More
