Northwest | Bellevue, Eastside

First time here, it was down a side ally but easy to find. Bartender was very attentive and friendly, enjoyed a cocktail at the bar before friends arrived, than moved to a booth. Limited amount of booths, so if you want one, be sure to reserve it in advance! Food was great, HIGHLY recommend their fish and chips. The pieces are HUGE, so unless you are really hungry or splitting, I'd recommend just getting one piece. My wife got the halibut which was also delicious. Oh, don't pass up on the crab brochettes and fried calamari before your meal, they were both a ten. We will be back for sure. More

Amazing! Not crowded at all. Two Tone Blues featuring Tommy Wall were performing. They have a soulful and powerful voice and were playing their guitars phenomenally. The staff was very attentive. We enjoyed our evening here relaxing on our drinks, relishing the delicious small plates of food, and listening to outstanding blues music. More

The food was outstanding. We tried the vegetarian tasting menu. So many different flavors. The service is amazing. The lightning and decor is great. It is expensive but for a special occasion it is worth it since it will be an experience and memorable dinner. You only live once. Love that you can bring your own wine and pay a corking fee. More

Discover Eastside

The Eastside is home to an amazing variety of cuisines with a great selection of delicious restaurants, cozy cafes, and exciting bars. Start your food adventure by trying an appetizing local shellfish dish at one of the steak, seafood, French, or Northwestern establishments. Taste one of the local elk, boar, or veal dishes at any number of the inviting contemporary American restaurants or steakhouses. Many dishes at the American, Italian, steak, and seafood eateries use the area’s wild mushrooms in a variety of dishes. These would be a great meal option if you wanted to get a taste of the area favorite. The Eastside region is also known for its local craft beer, which can be found in any of the restaurants in this charming suburb.
