Bellevue Things to Do

  • Bellevue Botanical Garden

    Just east of downtown Bellevue, this garden was deeded to the city to create a park in 1984, but with the significant effort that had gone into developing the house and land as a garden an effort was made to retain the developed part of the property.Thus, after several years of development efforts, the Bellevue Botanical Garden was opened to the...

  • Bellevue Art Museum

    It is a bit difficult to describe this museum in any detail, as many of their showings are only open for a period, and then get replaced by something else. All I can tell you is, check the web site schedule and you may well find something interesting on show here. However, despite not being able to give you much detail about what may or may not be...

  • Shooting Pool!

    There are not a lot of late night places open on the eastside but there is a nice place to go and shoot pool now with the opening of The Parlor Billiards and Spirits. There are 42 tables on which to shoot pool on. The wait when we went on a busy friday night was not long, only 15 minutes. That allowed us to check out the full bar and drink up....

Bellevue Restaurants

  • BIG Breakfast

    We found this place by chance on a Sunday morning when we were looking for a breakfast spot in Bellevue. We'd just about given up and were ready to head into Seattle when we spotted Gilbert's. We found parking easily and headed inside to order. The place was relatively small, but the big windows and high ceilings made it feel bright and airy.You...

  • Relatively Economical Pay-by-lb Indian...

    [Unfortunately, only one of the photos I took of this place turned out - and even then only marginally so.]While it is probably not the best food in downtown Bellevue, it is certainly a switch from the number of expensive restaurants that cater to the high-tech high-wage earners that also eat in downtown Bellevue. It is a simple grocery store and...

  • Extraordinary Steakhouse

    The overall experience and the numerous staff members that made our evening extraordinary were all outstanding. The waiter was excellent, as was the Sommelier. Even the Manager came by to ask how we were doing. All staff members were delightful and friendly. I started with the Tempera Fried Kurobuta Bacon (amazing), the Peppercorn Rib Eye (tasted...

  • They got this one right

    Out of all the I Love Sushi locations, the one in Bellevue is the best.Their quality of fish is amazing out of all Bellevue, if not Seattle. And they put time into presentation as well. The lunch time is the best during the week, they have really good sushi combos for a great price

  • Cheesecake galore

    This Cheesecake Factory is located right by Bellevue Square. The main attraction is of course, the cheescake. THey have several different kinds to choose from. The food menu is one of the longest i've ever seen so I'm sure that there is an entree and appetizer for your taste. I don't think the food is that special plus out of the 7 dishes we...

  • Great Italian food in Bellevue

    Maggiano's Little Italy in Lincoln Square Bellevue is reminiscent of New York's Little Italy. The interior of the restaurant is partitioned into 4 smaller rooms in classic decor. The service is excellent and the staff have good knowledge of the dishes on the menu. I had the fettucine alfredo with broccoli.

  • Fresh Seafood in the heart of Bellevue

    McCormick and Schmick's is a premier chain of seafood restaurants with more than 50 branches throughout the USA. I had the opportunity to dine at the Bellevue branch of McCormick and Schmick's located in Lincoln Square in the heart of Bellevue. It was a weekday but the restaurant was packed with people. Reservations are definitely...

  • The best steak in eastern Seattle...

    Located in Bellevue Square in the heart of Bellevue, WA is Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. This is a fine dining steakhouse decorated in traditional mahogany wood panelling. Popular with Seattlites, this steakhouse is a great place to spend an evening with friends or relatives. The restaurant specialises in steak. I had the sirloin steak which was simply...

  • Great Traditional Japanese Atmosphere

    Excellent service - traditional Japanese/Okinawan flavor - tastefully decorated - good atmosphere. Gyoza - and the sushi special :)


Bellevue Off The Beaten Path

  • Wilburton Hill Park

    At first glance, the majority of this park, just down the street from the Bellevue Botanical Gardens, appears to be highly developed in nature: several playgrounds, and several sports fields. However, the park also contains a fair amount of woodlands with a few trails (including a short portion of the Lake to Lake Trail) passing through them.If you...

  • Downtown Park

    While much of downtown Bellevue is today dominated by a lot of traffic noise, Downtown Park is one of the oasis from this tangle of engine noise.The park features several different fountains, one of which is a loop of water that runs right next to a gravel circular broadway that is used as a jogging path by many residents. This pathway is 1/2 mile...

  • Plaza at City Hall

    Located just two blocks west of Interstate 405, the new Bellevue City Hall is a huge edifice of a structure, and includes a street level plaza with several works of art in it, plus a glass meeting hall.The works of art include a large metal reproduction of an overturned tree stump (perhaps indicating just how much the entire lumber industry has...
