Come between main eating hours, or you will never get in. It's pleasant in the winter, like a seaside grill, and more pleasant in nice weather, especially if you can get an outside table. Service can be slow and grumpy, but once you get your food and are able to enjoy it, the atmosphere, and company, it's hard to beat,... More

Tried the Peanut butter jelly burger....wow. Great patio, gets super busy when it is sunny. Small kitchen sometimes it can take forever to get your food.

Our friends suggested eating here on a sunny evening in early September. Knew there might not be more evenings like that, so we said yes. Hadn't been there in years. We all had some form of burger - chicken, veggie, and beef. For a not very crowded place, it took a long time for our food to come. I had... More

The Slip is poster child for what is wrong with restaurants in Kirkland. How do you make it with such a bad burger place? Location, location, location. If wasn't for their location and they were in any other city.. They would be shunned as a burger place. The only reason we still go there, is when friends come in from... More

This is a gem in Kirkland. When the sun is shining n Kirkald's waterfront... Go there... Not fancy. Not pretentious. I had the nemi ??? The chicken sandwich loaded with bacon and and and... Delicious. Really should be served with a large bib! And the Gorgonzola French fries (baked) are superb!

Love the baked fish sandwich with Bleu Cheese Fries. Outdoor dining near Marina Park where you can see and meet friends while enjoying a great meal.

On a beautiful sunny day, while the Kirkland auto show was going on right out the front door, a group of us stopped in for adult beverages and a light late lunch. We were informed of a waiting line and debated adding our names or hitting one of the food trucks in the marina 100 yards away. I opted for... More

When the weather turns pleasant we always head for the Slip to enjoy the extremely pleasant outdoor patio. Very nice view of Lake Washington, Marina Park, and the Waterfront. Their choice of burgers is great be they Beef, Chicken, or Veggie. You cannot go wrong. Nice selection of Sandwiches with Salmon being my favorite. Good selection of Beer and a... More

The first time I went to the Slip I ordered a regular burger and was not a huge fan of it. I went back a few weeks later and ordered a chicken burger and it was amazing! Their chicken burgers are the best I have had. The Tiger chicken burger is highly recommended!

This restaurant seating is 90% outdoors. The minimal indoor seating is small pub style chairs and stools and cramped. Outdoor was full so we had no choice, but we were able to move when something opened up. The seating outside is more comfortable than inside, but cramped. The place was busy. I walked by the next day as well and... More
