Seattle >Food & Dining > Greenlake Bar
Love GLBG. I've lived in Green Lake for 3 years now and this is one spot that I LOVE! Happy Hour is great, servers are friendly. One of my favorite menu items is the Chicken Club Burgers and Fries! Breakfast is pretty delicious as well.
Great happy hour and location. This place is right on greenlake in a cool old brick building. The decore inside is old-school, dark, but there is a view of the lake. The food is really tasty, not cheap, but the happy hour food and drink prices are great, and there is no better restaurant on Greenlake.
Great HH. My friends and I have a sort of "HH club" where we try different places for HH periodically and we all give kudos to Greenlake Bar & Grill as having one of the most decent HH food for the value. For the prices you get pretty decent sized portions of your basic menu items, such as wedge and Caesar salads, burgers, fries, etc. Drinks specials also during HH.
Why bother!!!! Does not even deserve a single STAR!!!!!!. Seattle is a city with great restaurants, bars and cuisine, why bother embarrassing yourself by taking a date here and wasting your money and looking like a scmuck for bringing them to such a horrible less than zero restaurant and bar, that even the regulars scoff at. The Grill offers mediocre food that is over priced, bad service not worth tipping on and an environment that makes a morgue look like a rave. Seattle has to many great places to choose from, find a better place to go.
Great Happy Hour, Good Place for Families. I like this place. The atmosphere is comfortable. The food is good. The service is good. They have a great happy hour and I can take my kids here sometimes and they enjoy it. Parking can sometimes be a hassle - but it's Green Lake!
nt so great commpared to what they say they're.
bit too pricey for quality i got and service wasn't there when i needed.
i wouldn't recommend anyone again, disappointment and tasteless cold dish i got.
An all around amazing restaurant. I love this restaurant. I have been there probably 30 times and I have never left dissapointed. They have great food and drinks and the most amazing happy hour I have ever been too. You can get a plate of pasta for $1.99! It might not be the best pasta you have ever had but it's cheap and it tastes good. During regular hours I always get the raviollis or the burger--both are delicious! I tend to drink mixed drinks and cocktails and while they are a little spendy they are always stiff. They have great servers too; everyone has always been friendly, energetic and attentive, even when they are super busy. The atmosphere is great, it's funky, upbeat and they play great music in the bar. You are never subjected to dreary elevator type music. It's a great place and I recommend it to every one.
Great Happy Hour. I have dined here on several occasions and have left satisfied each time. The happy hour menu cannot be beat--it's so cheap--I especially loved the coconut shrimp for $1.95--a whole platefull!! Though I have not sat at the bar, the drinks I have had there have been great, if not a bit strong on the amaretto sour. I would recommend this as a good place to take a date--not too expensive and the atmosphere is great.
The last time we went.....
The service was average, the fish tacos were okay. The lobby smells of cleaning products. (Go easy on the bleach next time.) I had the worst pork chop I have ever paid for, dry, flavorless and small. They brought the wrong side dish with the plate. I sent back the rice for the expected mashed potatoes. I should have kept the rice, the potatoes were cold, clammy and tasted like they were from a box.
I say the last time, because it was and will always be, the last time we go there.
Yick! Only if you're desperate!. We were lured in by the $13.95 three course dinner -- but should have known that it was too cheap to be good! The pasta with chicken literally tasted like Pasta-Roni -- but with less salt -- and the chicken looked like those pre-cooked strips you can buy at the supermarket. My rice was crunchy and the steak came with a huge puddle of thousand island on top -- ew! The only redeaming thing: a gigantic ice cream sundae for the third course -- but you really cant screw up ice cream!
