This is definitely a good weather place, since almost all of the seating is outdoors. Burgers are OK, but only come with the spices that The Slip uses. If you like the spices on your burger, then you will like The Slip. Service is friendly and good.

Small and cozy inside, but excellent service and the hamburgers are absolutely great. We made a special side trip to come back to The Slip since our last visit to Seattle a year ago, and it was worth it.

I love having a casual lunch at Slip with my family in the summer time. It is a great and relaxing atmosphere to eat outside, in the middle of everything happening in downtown Kirkland.

Very nice setting when eating outside, with a good view of the lake. Inside is small. Solid specialty burgers and good service.

You've got to have the right attitude at the Slip - the wait may be long, but the burgers are worth it. We've been coming here for years and enjoy the feeling of being on vacation as we sit and look at the lake. My favorite is the WHole Earth burger - love this vegetarian patty they make in house....

Love the Slip, and look forward to eating here. Very little room inside, but the outside and the "upper deck" where you can see the water are great. Burgers are ordered - no sides included. Fries are so-so. Attentive staff and very kid friendly - animals, too.

Service was sooooo slow. 20 mins to get a drink and our order taken. 10 more to get the drinks. Food was good but when not was time to pay it was another 20 mins for the waiter to come back.

It may have been the heatwave or it may have been just one of those days, but our lunch at "Slip" today was the worst food we have had in a very long time. We looked forward to a tasty patio lunch and cool beverage, but what we were served was quite the opposite. My friend ordered the fish and... More

Get the burger with Cajun seasoning for $5.95 and a happy hour beer on the patio and you'll have the best f/b package in the neighborhood. Great staff...watch people pass by who paid too much money for overpriced drinks and food on Main Street.

This place is easily overlooked as it is located in a small building. It is worth the stop. The burgers here are amazing. They are unique such as the peanut butter & bacon. Also, the Jack Daniels Chili is terrific especially on a cold, winter day. During the summer I suggest sitting outside.
