Located just east of Seattle, in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, the city of Issaquah has grown a great deal in recent years. If you are heading into the city, this is a nice last stop before reaching the huge metropolis. If heading into the mountains, this is a great place to stop off for one last shopping adventure or some other time spent in some sort of diversion.
Issaquah is also a nice place to stop for a bite to eat on the way out of the city. This can help you to keep better time as you don’t have to account for the congestion of the city streets or any kind of event that may be taking place inside the city.
Our last visit to Issaquah was just for this reason. The place I chose to eat at on our way out of the Seattle area was the WildFin American Grill. We showed up just in time for brunch and the selection of seafood, as well as everything else, was phenomenal. In fact, in many ways, the selection was better than a couple of seafood places we had tried in the city.
We dined outside on the patio which was a nice way to end our time on the west side of the mountains. The stylish design elements of WildFin really do add to the experience.
We all left WildFin with full bellies and a look of satisfaction on our faces. As great as the food was, oh and it was, I also loved the relaxed atmosphere there. This was not only accomplished by the decor in the dining area but also by the friendly faces that the servers were wearing.
I love finding a good locally owned eating establishment that is a little off the beaten path. The WildFin American Grill qualifies for that and has the added benefit of being absolutely superb. Brunch there was a lot of fun and very tasty. It put this place on my radar as something in the future we could try for dinner.
You can bet that I will be back to eat at the WildFin at least one more time.
