When the weather turns pleasant we always head for the Slip to enjoy the extremely pleasant outdoor patio. Very nice view of Lake Washington, Marina Park, and the Waterfront. Their choice of burgers is great be they Beef, Chicken, or Veggie. You cannot go wrong. Nice selection of Sandwiches with Salmon being my favorite. Good selection of Beer and a... More

The first time I went to the Slip I ordered a regular burger and was not a huge fan of it. I went back a few weeks later and ordered a chicken burger and it was amazing! Their chicken burgers are the best I have had. The Tiger chicken burger is highly recommended!

This restaurant seating is 90% outdoors. The minimal indoor seating is small pub style chairs and stools and cramped. Outdoor was full so we had no choice, but we were able to move when something opened up. The seating outside is more comfortable than inside, but cramped. The place was busy. I walked by the next day as well and... More

The Slip has always been a favorite lunch spot; the Earth Burgers are the best. But the last few visits we have been disappointed in the meal and service was very slow. The outside patio is nice to eat out on a sunny day but it would be nice if they bought more sturdy chairs and tables.

This is definitely a good weather place, since almost all of the seating is outdoors. Burgers are OK, but only come with the spices that The Slip uses. If you like the spices on your burger, then you will like The Slip. Service is friendly and good.

Small and cozy inside, but excellent service and the hamburgers are absolutely great. We made a special side trip to come back to The Slip since our last visit to Seattle a year ago, and it was worth it.

I love having a casual lunch at Slip with my family in the summer time. It is a great and relaxing atmosphere to eat outside, in the middle of everything happening in downtown Kirkland.

Very nice setting when eating outside, with a good view of the lake. Inside is small. Solid specialty burgers and good service.

You've got to have the right attitude at the Slip - the wait may be long, but the burgers are worth it. We've been coming here for years and enjoy the feeling of being on vacation as we sit and look at the lake. My favorite is the WHole Earth burger - love this vegetarian patty they make in house....

Love the Slip, and look forward to eating here. Very little room inside, but the outside and the "upper deck" where you can see the water are great. Burgers are ordered - no sides included. Fries are so-so. Attentive staff and very kid friendly - animals, too.
