From the first glance, Eastlake Bar & Grill looks like one of those places that probably won’t be your jam. The signage makes it seem like a tacky diner in New Jersey, the interior design was obviously ripped right out of a page in Red Robin’s book, and they’re not known for being the most popular restaurant on the avenue. But boy, do they have a dandy rooftop situation - so eating outside when you’re here is the way to go. There’s a tiki bar, astro-turf with a ping pong table and a giant game of Connect Four (same frustration, only life-sized), and a way better view of Lake Union than Little Water Cantina down the block (and way better prices, too). Drown yourself in prickly pear margaritas, show your friends how terrible you are at table tennis, and your afternoon daydrinking session is officially a success.
