Diner Reviews
  • "This is a small, family run place with all that entails - warm and friendly, but not professional service; good food for decent prices without being upscale or particularly innovative. If I lived in this neighborhood I'd probably go there once a month at least. The best entree of the night was salmon with a light maple glaze."

  • "This was our first visit to this restaurant and we will definitely return. The service was fantastic and the food was delicious. We had the Saturday special (3 courses for $30) and enjoyed every bite of every dish. Not sure why we hadn't tried this previously, but it is definitely on our favorites list."

  • " Over the years I've been going, it gets better and better. The food is SUPERB. The Salmon exquisite. And the service and ambience could not be warmer and more attentive, yet respectful to let one have a nice private dinner with a companion without feeling "managed" or watched or over-served by wait staff."

  • "Enjoyed the experience, we were in the area for the weekend in a VRBO and tried different places every evening. This was our last evening place and I would have to say the best."

  • "My wife and I have eaten here several times over the years, and every meal has been superb. We took a friend of ours this time, and we all loved it. The food was creative and delicious (never had garlic-almond granola before), the service was friendly and efficient, the ambiance is casual and very comfortable, and the vibes of the place are quite engaging. It is the utmost example of a "neighborhood gem.""

  • "Comfort food with a good focus on local ingredients. Picky kids, foodies, meat-and-potato lovers, vegans and folks with dairy and gluten allergies can all find something they will be delighted with! Worthy of special notice: the butter leaf salad is spectacular - seems like very simple, classic, ingredients but somehow comes together as the best salad I've ever had. My husband swears that their ribeye is better than he has had a local steakhouse, they make their own steak sauce! One last - the fish special is ALWAYS fantastic!"

  • "Sand Point Grill never disappoints. Service is friendly & attentive, menu is fresh & seasonal & their Happy Hour is the best secret in town (shhhh!). As a neighborhood regular, it remains my favorite spot to dine in the area. "

  • "We were visiting Seattle and found this on Open Table, not too far from where we were staying near UW. Wonderfully low-key neighborhood restaurant with great food and friendly and efficient service (we had the trout). Would come back next time we visit!"

  • "We looked at the reviews on Open Doors and gave this place a shot two months earlier. It was great in every way - good food, very reasonable prices, kind of a Cheers ambience, some diners came in with their kids; great neighborhood place. We went again two nights ago - same exact experience. My wife and I go out to a restaurant almost every Saturday, usually to new ones to us, and about a third of the time to "regulars' we love. This is now a regular. "

  • "First time here. Food was excellent. Very warm and friendly people working here. Did not like the seating. Chairs very uncomfortable. Only salads for vegetarians though."

  • "We just found this local gem last Friday. Great food made with quality ingredients. The small menu was made up of perfect choices for almost anybody. Attentive (but not overly) and friendly wait staff made the experience pleasant. The prices are moderate but well worth it for the quality of meal you are getting. My wife and I ordered some appetizers and split a Rueben sandwich. The sandwich was the best Reuben I've ever tasted - made with Gruyere cheese - and awesome fries! Great cocktails and local beers on tap. Cant say enough good things about this place - too bad we didn't find it sooner. We've lived in the area over 20 years and drove past this place all the time. Now that we've found it we will be coming back often."

  • "Sand Point Grill is our go-to place when we want a low stress, friendly place with reliable food. It is easy to park, they are super friendly, and have reliable good food. The Caesar salad is a favorite every time. Although not super exotic, the dishes are prepared interestingly enough for foodies to enjoy beyond the usual grill fare. We have come many times and never been disappointed. The cocktails also have some interesting choices. Just remember that you have to ask for bread (which is really good- warm little loaf)."

  • "Fantastic food leaning towards comfort classics (fried chicken, reuben, pasta carbonara) but with options featuring fresh and local ingredients (try the fish special, always innovative and excellent!). The roasted cauliflower steak with black garlic granola, pickled cauliflower and romescu sauce is possibly the best gluten free, vegan entree ever! Very kid friendly with a small plate of cut fruit and veggies whisked out to your table right away, great kid menu and kids eat free Sun - Tuesday 5 - 6:30."

  • "Very interesting combination of comfort food and innovative menu items and preparations. We truly enjoyed our evening -- great happy hour, cosy bar, well made drinks. The dinner menu had something for everything. The clientell was a mix of ages, families, couples, etc. The food was well prepared. We will definitely go back. "

  • "This is a great neighborhood restaurant, with friendly owner and wait staff. We keep coming back for the Reuben sandwiches and the schnitzel. A good place to stop in for happy hour at the bar. Small, kid-friendly (but grown-up friendly too!). "

  • "My friends and I are frequent diners at Sand Point Grill. It is a great neighborhood place with great food and service, and if you are a regular, they know your name. Our latest visit was for my birthday. There were nine of us, and everything went smoothly."

  • "There is nothing to say but go try it and enjoy! Saturday Market meals bring a wide variety of flavors to an otherwise fairly simple menu. Not to say that simple menu is a bad thing but limited choices, all of them delicious. Best Risotto I've ever had. Bring your vegetarian friends for the Cauliflower Steak mine say it's great!"

  • "We ate here recently with friends from a small town who needed a menu that wasn't too scary (read: no octopus soup), whereas my husband and I are moderate foodies who like thoughtful choices of wine and beer. The Sand Point Grill navigates that great food space of not intimidating and not boring - every dish we had was well executed, generous, and delicious. We ordered halibut on a lentil/asparagus pilaf with fresh nettle puree (a daily special); a beautiful steak with roasted potatoes and greens (the safe food guy); and Cioppino. The desserts were standouts - key lime tart and probably the best German chocolate cake I've ever had. Service was prompt, friendly, and funny. Don't expect fancy ambiance- this is a neighborhood joint."

  • "Been dining here for awhile was surprised by new greeter this week with a lot of attitude no table in spite of reservation. When asked why he simply stated "I haven't checked it for awhile". No apology seated by door had to put up with his attitude all night as he waved patrons in and was really rude and not at all what I expect from this restaurant. Had a great waiter usually seated by a waiter should go back to that and get rid of the rude kid."

  • "In a region of Seattle hardly known for memorable cuisine, much less the nexus of foodies mania in other parts of the city, the Sand Point Grill is a sweet spot of excellent NW bistro style food, select drink and wine and a very comfy neighborhood feel. It can be a bit jammed and even backed up during Happy Hour but very comfortable most occasions."

  • "Everything was fabulous from the ambience and staff to the delicious food. We took two friends who were visiting from out of town and rather than take them somewhere familiar I decided to roll the dice and try someplace new. When I read that they focus on using quality organic ingredients and buy local and regional farmers I was sold. I've been very conscious of my diet recently learning what a huge difference it makes relative to the food you eat. Everything they prepared for us was delectable. We cleared our plates and I was a little sad that none of us had room for dessert. We will certainly be back for more and I will certainly recommend this restaurant to friends."

  • "We've been to Sand Point Grill many times before, but this was a special occasion--my husband's birthday. I love that they're taking reservations so that we had a reserved table in the back, where it was a bit quieter. As always, the food was fantastic and the service was impeccable. I was a little disappointed that they didn't either stick a candle in my husband's dessert or give it to us for free, but that won't keep us from going back."

  • "There were eight of us and we all agreed the food was very good and that we would return for another meal. Five out of the eight ordered the hamburger per recommendation of one of our party who had been there before. All agreed the burgers were excellent. Other dishes ordered were fish tacos, fried chicken and the special of the day, seared cod which was outstanding. Clean plates all the way around the table. The service was friendly and efficient without making us feel rushed. Prices were reasonable without breaking the bank. All and all an enjoyable experience."

  • "I have been taking my wife to Sandpoint Grill for her Birthday for almost a decade. It is a small quiet spot perfect for a weekday evening dinner. We had the same this year as last: crab cakes and risotto, both of which are excellent."

  • "Wonderful little place to drop in and catch up with friends, food is fine although just a touch heavy-handed (my trout was well done but the sides and garnishes overwhelmed it). Service can be quite slow but the ambience is relaxed and friendly so that's not too much of a problem."
