Having recently done a few reviews of Mercer Island restaurants, I’m interested to see what the foodies think. Chowhound isn’t kind to our Mercer Island restaurants:
Any good restaurants on Mercer Island? “I’ve been working on the island for six months now, and I am still asking the same question.”
Chowhounds note a few exceptions if you read the comments:
- “Pan Proem Thai, further south on 78th, I’ve had twice and it was well-made and fresh.” Yup.
- Bennett’s is good.
- Cellar 46 comes recommended but to date I’ve only done a drive-by. (Confidential to Ken: I’ll get there.)
- “Also, if you’re up for a bit of a trek, the new Mexican place on the south end of the island isn’t bad.” Agreed. A good find. It’s the one next to the QFC.
As for the other restaurants on the Island, let’s just say that if we want a steak we go to The Islander and otherwise we eat at home.
