A word from Ship Canal Grill
The Ship Canal Grill is the newest restaurant and bar in the Eastlake neighborhood featuring a warm and stylish atmosphere, tall windows and industrial design. With dozens of incredible mid-1900's photography from the Museum of History & Industry, SCG will take you back in time during Seattle and the Eastlake neighborhood's construction era. Our menu includes plenty of local Pacific Northwest flavors such as Grilled Alaskan Salmon, Seafood Fettuccine and crispy Fish and Chips. You'll also love our mouth-watering Kobe beef burgers, specialty sandwiches, flat breads and pasta options.

  • "Booked the reservation for Valentines Day. Arrived and it had that "sports bar" appearance, but we continued onward, inward and upward into the loft - which also had a pool table. So, um...gulp...but, there was really a pleasant jazz duo playing; the waitress was absolutely a delight; and, the food was awesome. A fixed price menu for the evening and it was a very fair price for the portions and the quality. Truly, enjoyed the great food. So, would I go back - yep. Would I recommend it to a friend - absolutely. Would I book it for Valentines Day...well....maybe not next year, but for a dinner on the way to another part of the date evening. Sure."

  • "We were looking for a nice place for an early diviner on New Years Eve . We were joining Friends and wanted to be able to enjoy a meal and talk. Ship Canal Grill was perfect! It was festive yet relaxed. We had lamb, sliders and their wonderful fries! We left just as the evening music was setting up. That was perfect for us and it looked Like the place was going to hopping later in the evening. I love to find a later evening spot that has great food an atmosphere for those Of us who like to eat a little earlier! Thanks SCG for a relaxed New Years Eve! We will be back,"

  • "The main courses and desserts were quite tasty and well-done; the appetizer salads were ok, but seemed largely like they were fresh from the bag. The restaurant itself is more of a bar atmosphere with a few tables and booths for dining while the majority of the space is allocated to a bar, pool tables, and general social gathering areas. It's a nice place to grab a quick bite or casually catch up with a friend, but certainly not for a romantic evening. I will say that the service was quite nice. Though we had an Amazon Local voucher, the listed value of the voucher does not match up with the food quality or quantity: the food was overpriced."

  • "Staff was very friendly and helpful. Loved the set up and decor. Wouldn't eat there again (food isn't bad, but its not good). But will definitely be back for a drink!"

  • "Spots like this, along a busy thoroughfare, can be so easily overlooked in your day to day driving. Pay attention, along Eastlake, just before crossing over the University Drawbridge, as you head north, it is in the new building. There is a small parking lot under the building with an entrance from Westlake, or a much bigger lot across the street, and under the I5 Ship Canal Bridge, great tie in for the name huh? Modern interior, with a period style painting of the old Lake Union, as seen from the I-5 bridge under construction. The food is great, a short but varied menu, to suit everyone in your group. Seek it out, and stop by"

  • "Had a coupon and felt like the food matched the discount. Ordered from a separate menu. Didn't get what we ordered, waitress did try to fix. The salmon was way overcooked and had a strange pesto sauce pseudo drizzled on the top. Not what I expected from the décor (fairly cool) and location."

  • "The Ship Canal Grill wasn't bad but it also wasn't spectacular. Without making this a full on retelling of the meal, the best part of the meal was the appetizer, the Mediterranean Plate, which wasn't included in the deal and the wine. I ordered the ribs with fries and my friend ordered the salmon with mashed potatoes. Presentation was simple but both weren't anything special. The ribs weren't all that tender and hadn't been cooked in the bbq sauce, the salmon was supposed to have pesto on it but all I could see was pepper really. Service: As per the reviews, it wasn't the best. The staff was pleasant but made errors in our meal and others that could have been avoided. All in all I will not be going back there any time soon."

  • "If you love to explore food always want to find the next best place to eat at.Whether it's a fine dining or a hole in the wall. You would say this place is nothing out of the ordinary restaurants. Food is average. However, the service is good & friendly."
