First of all, do not sit by the window: if sunny, you will get hot. Beautiful view looks out over the water on all 3 levels. Food was OK but nothing to brag about.

The food was excellent and the service was wonderful as well. You can have a nice view of Elliott Bay as you are eating. There is also a spot where Tom Hanks sat in the movie, “Sleepless in Seattle.” The beer selection was pretty good.

GREAT service! But, honest to god, I cannot for the life of me remember what either of us ordered. I think my brother ordered a salad with chicken of some sort, but I am at a total loss for what I ordered/ate. That's a damned...More

We were on a tour and our tour guide recommended this place. Sleepless in Seattle filmed here so they have a Hollywood connection. My son and husband had the fish and chips. They both enjoyed their meals. I had the Athenian side salad and a...More
