A word from Wilde Rover Irish Pub & Restaurant
We borrow a part of our name from the well-known Irishman Oscar Wilde, a man who brought wit and entertainment to the world around him, and we strive to follow in his footsteps.  Since opening our doors in August of 2006, we have enjoyed being the premiere Irish pub and restaurant on the Eastside serving literally thousands of guests every month, and hosting dozens of events a year for a wide variety of organizations and individuals. We believe that our dedication to the community through event sponsorship and giving back is a key factor in our success.   We are located in the heart of beautiful downtown Kirkland, and the sparkling waters of Lake Washington can be enjoyed from our outdoor deck, our 980 sq. ft. banquet room, fireplace room or our game room.  The Wilde Rover offers a wide menu of food and drink that is reminiscent of “the old country,” serving lunch, dinner and happy hour daily, and brunch on the weekends. We have a fully stocked bar that includes many Irish favoritesContinued

Diner Reviews
  • "The food was OK, think bar food trying to seem like it's not by adding a few nicer items and jacking the price. But if you want a bar environment (noisy, music, etc.) and where you can bring kids then this is your place. Lots of live music to be had. Just don't order the lamb stew."

  • "The servers were very nice but we had 3 year olds with us and they brought their food out early and then we waited for ours for another 10-15 minutes so by then they kids were done and wanted to leave. So we all ended up taking boxes of our food with us. There were not a lot of people in the restaurant so I am not quite sure why it took so long to get our order. The food was good, but nothing special. I think I would go back without the children."

  • "Wonderful establishment. Been there for bands before, were very accommodating (we messed up on our booking/wrong day), we were an hour late and they were happy to seat us and still take care of us (and 15 ladies can be a handful :)). Exceptional customer service...drinks were good and brought in a timely fashion. Very grateful for the dinner to go off without a hitch!"

  • "A dozen of us who had traveled together (as part of a larger group) on a trip to Australia and New Zealand a few months before decided to have a "reunion" to share pictures and memories. The Wilde Rover proved to be an excellent choice for this. Everyone enjoyed their meal and reported that the location was perfect."

  • "tHE MENU AND PHOTOS OF FOOD ON THE WEB SITE WAS VERY DIFFERENT FROM WHAT WAS ACTUALLY SERVED. THE POT ROAST SANDWICH WAS DRY AND POORLY PRESENTED. THE MEAT WAS LIKE JERKY. ONLY ONE OF US FOUR DINERS WAS SATISFIED. I DON'T THINK I WILL GO THERE AGAIN."

  • "Good food and atmosphere, service lacking attention. Had a large group and there was some confusion at the end with the bills. The waiter said well, it's not my bad.. yes, actually it was. Other than that, everything was fine"

  • "I've been to the Wilde Rover several times. The service has always been terribly slow but I was in luck this last visit and my waiter was very attentive. A happy improvement! It is a great place for Science Café:showing up at 5:30 and ordering off of the Happy Hour menu was a smart idea since the room was packed by 6:15. I have food allergies and the waiter made sure nothing was in my dinner that I couldn't eat. What a relief. All the other times I have been there I've had to send something back because the kitchen made a mistake. One thing that annoys me is that a waiter takes your order but a different person delivers it so it makes it hard to discuss any problems with the food or the service. Good luck finding your waitress!"

  • "Food was good, but the service was only so-so. Place was very full so waitress many have had too many customers. Our husbands enjoyed her low cut dress, but really wished she had brought the food and drinks sooner and without mistakes. It was our fault for coming for a dinner on a night when there was a game on TV. We were seated in the bar area and if we had known there was a game we would have asked to be seated elsewhere. We had wanted to visit with old friends, but it ended up being too noisy to talk."

  • "Good food. Good service. Nice selection of local craft beers and Irish whiskies."

  • "Not my first visit and certainly won't be the last. Dreary Northwest day outside, warm and super friendly inside. We were early so the restaurant wasn't crowded and noisy. The quiet was just right for our monthly discussion of politics and the Seahawks! The lunch crowd trickled in while we were there, but we still got top-notch attention."

  • "I am a huge fan of Wilde Rover. I have always had a wonderful time here. You can never be disappointed when you visit Wilde Rover! The staff here is better than all the other restaurant staff anywhere in Kirkland!"

  • "Food was good. Only complaint was that we reserved a booth in advance and was told they couldn't honor our requests once we got there due to the football game. We had a larger sized group so we couldn't go anywhere else. We were put in the back of the restaurant in a bad location. Restaurant shouldn't accept reservations they can't honor."

  • "Bad service, mediocre food, waited on by a blonde gal in a skimpy black dress. Avoid this place!"

  • "I met friends for dinner here...my first time. The food was great (can't recommend the cookie dessert though, it was too soft and weird). The waitress was good, not great. She wasn't super knowledgeable about the menu and ingredients since one of my party was vegan. The football game was on and it was loud. I was not there for the game, so it was disturbing at first; we got used to it. I don't prefer restaurants that have t.v.'s in them and I didn't think this would be a "sports bar," so I was disappointed in that aspect. I would still recommend it. The food was really good and the ambiance was fun."

  • "Went here to have dinner and watch a band. Food was quite tasty. Service a tad slow and not overly friendly basically adequate."

  • "We made a last-minute reservation for a group of 10 at 7pm, and by the time we arrived the table had been set up. The staff was very friendly and quick to take and deliver orders, and at the end of the meal the waiter offered to split the bill by couples (which was a little awkward for our single friend, but still very convenient) instead of waiting for us to ask. The food was great and plentiful for the price, and our table in the back was far enough from the live music to hear each other while still enjoying the music in the background."

  • "If you want a great time, the Wilde Rover is for you! The food is fabulous. The wait staff are on top of things (tip well), and the music? Wow!! Don't miss Geoffrey Castle on Monday's."

  • "Couldn't possibly hold a conversation. We went elsewhere. Large room with bar had music blaring AND TV on."

  • "Met family here for an early dinner, so we could catch our Christmas lake cruise on time. I had made reservations, but when I arrived, no table. Had to wait awhile. They were understaffed and our food, drink took time. Their ethnic Irish food was tasty and well-presented; dark beers outstanding. Their bangers and mash, particularly, were good. But we had to rush our dinner to board our nearby cruise ship on time. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is the mess-up with the reservations and the slow service. We did get on our boat on time and it was a wonderful evening. This would be a great place to meet friends on a Friday evening after work, too. It is in the Kirkland harbor area so access to many nice places and parking."

  • "Gets a bit noisy - loud music in vicinity of bar. Food was quite good."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "So many choices on this menu it was hard to choose what to order. We were a party of 5 - everyone ordered something different and loved it. Only dim spot was our server who didn't seem to want to be working on a Sat night."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "Our server was superb! He recommended great choices. Nice evening but...I wanted to hear Irish music. Billed as an Irish pub but has Irish music only on Mondays and we get up at 4am so weeknights don't work for us coming from Snohomish."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "This is a great Irish Food place. It also has a full bar. The service is great and the seating is very comfortable. I would highly reccomend this as a place if you are looking for good food and great service."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "Good beer, nice hot food, prompt service. Later there is entertainment so it can be noisier due to the music but that's just as much a bonus."

  • "Was a little loud for our older, out of state guests on Monday night. But we thoroughly enjoyed it!"

  • "Between us we had a burger, a reuben sandwich, and fish and chips. All were good, but I had a Caesar salad with the Reuben and it was fairly wilted and sad."
