Green Lake, Seattle. Beef & Fish Spot?

DriverPhil Nov 6, 2006 10:39 PM

We are going to be in Seattle at the end of the month and I need a place to take my Niece too that we will enjoy also.

My wife and I would like fresh seafood, my Niece only eats beef, poor thing.

Can you suggest something casual, preferably in the Green Lake area that would meet our needs? Price is not an issue.

    Not in Green Lake, but...try Waterfront Seafood Grill on Western http://www.waterfrontpier70.com/water...

      Most good restaurants in Seattle serve excellent seafood.
      A Greenlake restaurant that might please all of you is Nell's:


      Or you might want to try Eva, also in Greenlake.

        Uh, these sound great for us but my niece is more of a burger or steak gal.

          I think Nell's would satisfy all of you... lots of seafood, plus they have a hanger steak.

          Greenlake Bar and Grill (http://www.greenlakebarandgrill.com), Tangletown (http://www.elysianbrewing.com/Tanglet...) or the Blue Onion Bistro (http://www.theblueonionbistro.com/din...) on the other side of the freeway--but still near would also fit the bill, but be less expensive and maybe safer choices.

            Not far from Greenlake (only a few blocks west) is http://www.stumblinggoatbistro.com/. It is a small menu but everything is good, and they have beef and seafood.

              Interesting dilemma . . . Nell's always has great seafood and, as previously mentioned has at least one steak (last time I went it was a Kobe hangar steak which was great). If you do hit Nell's I strongly encourage you to have the calamari appetizer--a house specialty and a standout. Eva is one of my personal favorites, and one of their standards is an Australian rib eye which is also great, and HUGE! I love the Tangletown brewery, but I think you'd find less fish there (I recall a fish & chips which was good, but that was lunch, not dinner). I haven't hit Stumbling Goat (I know, I know) but it just got a great review and I can't wait to try.

              Pretty much all of these can be casual--Nell's is probably the most dressy, but I've been there in very casual clothes and didn't feel odd.

              Waterfront has great food and a wonderful view, but more dressy--maybe more fun for you & wife alone . . .

              Good luck and have fun in Seattle!

                  Not far from Greenlake is Jak's grill. Great steaks for a more reasonable price than something like Ruth's Chris or the Met. Haven't tried their seafood before.

                    I'll second the recommendations for Nell's and Eva, but my last meal at The Stumbling Goat was a bit of a disappointment, and friends recently echoed that experience.
