Was visiting Kirkland Sat, Jan 21 2012 after the streets were cleared from the big snow storms earlier in the week. Ordered food off the Happy Hour menu in the Bar. Great ambience, drinks were good for the price $4-5, and food was good too. My Lovely wife and I shared Steak Sliders, Seafood chowder, Chicken Wings and a very tasty Mac & Cheese dish (Higly recommended!) She had a couple of ""sweet"" cocktails including the Margarita that were served in Pint glasses and made strong. I had a pint of a local dark Ale, and our server managed to have made a Spicy Bloody Mary for $5 that wasn't on the Happy hour Menu. Her service was excellent BTW! We would have had a great view of the lake during day light hours.I imagine this place is packed during the summer when this lakefront area is full of people strolling and crusing this beautiful community. I'm hoping to visit again in the spring or summer!
