Hectors has been around for a long time. Based on their food and service, they will be here even longer. All the meals are great. Comfort food and breakfast are the best! Bar is fun and sports are always on the TV

We used to like to come to Hector's for a weekend lunch, haven't been in a while and will not be back. For some reason it has turned into a major kid's zone. I think it is fine to have a family friendly place, but this might as well have been a Chuck E Cheese. There were tables of kids... More

They give big serving amount, always ending up taking home leftovers. Their food is good, I've always gone at brunch time when I crave brunch. Their alcohol beverages are really strong with hard A, too much for my liking, I love Bloody Mary but have to ask them for less shots in the drink or I can't drink it at... More

As we were walking around trying to find a place to have dinner, we saw Hector's and although reluctant at first we decided to give a try. We were pleasantly very surprised with how good the food was. The starter house salad was great. We ordered the short ribs and the beef stroganoff, and they were extremely delicious beyond comparison.... More

The staff was very friendly and welcoming - service was good - food was tasty. We sat in a booth, which was comfortable and added privacy for our meeting.

Hector's is a decades old staple of the community sustaining a continuous flow of regulars and newbies with good cocktails and menu. Comfortable atmosphere, friendly folks.

Average to good breakfast. However eggs were too much cooked. My sunny side up eggs were too cooked and the eggs benedicts from my friends were not liquid at all, which for good poached eggs is bad. I recommend the orange juice.

Stopped in for a late dinner at Hector's. Found the service very good, and food lovely. Had a chopped salad and friend loved her salmon tacos. Server was very prompt and friendly. Pour on cocktail was "impressive" as was the wine pour. First time in Kirkland and Hector's but will be back

A friend and I went for Crab Chowder and were informed that they no longer serve it. It was a cold day and we were hungry so we opted for a bowl of Clam Chowder instead. I asked for a basket of warm crusty bread to go with it. The Chowder was barely warm and they threw 4 slices of... More

Retro atmosphere and friendly staff, with strong coffee and classic breakfast dishes. My scrambled eggs were lovely: fluffy and light, not runny. The pancakes were fine, not outstanding, but still very good. Good sausage and crispy bacon, too. My husband and son both enjoyed their breakfasts. We will certainly return!

The 40 year tradition carries on at one of the Northwest's most revered neighborhood establishments. Join us for classic comfort food, prepared from the freshest ingredients, served by a friendly wait staff that makes out-of-towners feel like regulars, and regulars feel like home. The Sunday brunch with our classic Eggs Benedict isn't just a menu item - it's a local institution. Or drop in for a drink in front of the 114-year old carved mahogany bar back, and imagine the stories it could tell you. The original brickwork and cozy fireplaces are still here. So is the longstanding tradition of great food with unparalleled friendly service. We intend to keep it up for at least another 39 years to come. You're welcome anytime, and we'll keep the fire going for you!
