Reservations for three at 6 P M made a month ago and confirmed several days ago by phone; so, why weren't they prepared? Special Turkey Day menu was advertised. We drove in the heavy rain down from Warm Beach to celebrate Thanksgiving dinner with our son. Expectations ran high for our annual turkey fix. Sadly, that was not to be.... More

THis place has average food. Not bad, just not amazing. The prices seem high for what you get. I had the fish and chips, which were, well, average, but cost more than other places nearby. It does have a nice ambiance, and the service was good.

We went to Lake Forest Bar and Grill for brunch. The menu is ok. I had the garden Benedict and it was tasty enough. Our server was a bit slow. It was quiet atmosphere which was nice for our group as we were there to catch up with our friends.

I had chicken and waffles along with a bloody mary and my wife had chicken and waffles on the spicy side. We both liked the regular chicken best.

The french dip, sweet potato fries, and mac and cheese balls make for a great menu variety. This is a neighborhood restaurant done right. I have also been to their sister restaurant and the food is very consistent. I did visit on a holiday and so service was a bit slow, but otherwise great experience.

Tried this place after coming home late from work on a Friday to a house full of hungry boys (kids & husband!). They were "starving" so we decided to go to this place for a burger/sandwich (for everyone) and a cocktail (for the 2 adults!). The waitress was very nice though a bit overwhelmed. When we asked if they could... More

The servers and staff are friendly and nice, but the cooks need to get their acts together! Opens at 9am on Sat,s we got there at 9:05. Promptly ordered (2 of us), and the wait began. The 6 tables who ordered before us also had to wait. Finally at 9:25 food started to appear. We were table #6, getting ours... More

We made reservations for a group of 20 for 6:00 pm on Sunday night. It was to celebrate a 60th birthday after afternoon bowling at Kenmore Lanes. Bowling ran predictably long & we were the first 2 to arrive at nearly 6:30. I was embarrassed at our lateness, but the restaurant handled it wonderfully. Service was executed nearly flawlessly (I...

This is a good, but not great place to eat or have a couple of bevvys with friends whenever I am in North Seattle, which I am occasionally. Nothing special here, it's a neighborhood eatery, and the level of formality reflects this. The beer can be a bit pricey - seems every beer in Seattle is micro-brewery produced, which is... More
