“Poor Service and Poor food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

After years of viewing the Club as a Special Place the food and services have tumbled to the Poor rating. Over Priced and under preformed food can't be covered up by the view. Tofu was like dried overcooked French Toast and the Crab Cakes are what I would expect in Kansas, dry, overcooked and barely warm. Maybe the cook needs to eat out more often to see what is really good in the North West. Won't be going back soon.

“can't beat the view, need to work on service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012

Love the view of this place. Can't go wrong with happy hour. However we were there for a girls night out a week ago for a real dinner, and I asked the waiter if the seabass was sustainably harvested. He may have just been out of high school and immaturely answered, "I have no idea what you just asked." The rest of the service staff was about as professional as he was. Pretty disappointing for a very expensive meal.

“Great prime rib and drinks from very personable server/bartender”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2011

Great dinner with friends who are regulars here as they live within 2 miles. Typical dark colored heavy wood bar with comfortable booth seats and hardwood bar chairs. Great views to the west overlooking Seattle and the Olympic mountains. My wife had a cosmo- like drink that the bartender invented that tasted like an adult smoothie. Excellent. He made me a nice gimlet. My prime rib was perfect. Correct temp, nicely marbled, tasty!! Peach cobbler desert finished off a great evening. Would highly recommend.

“This is actually the Calcutta Grill in Newcastle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2011

I ate here compliments of my employer for 25 years of company service. The food and atmosphere are excellent, as was the service and the view, though much of the view was distant and hazy. I think the price was reasonable considering the superb quality.
