The Restaurant

Tucked away in the heart of Historic Gilman Village in downtown Issaquah you will find Flat Iron Grill. It is owner Sean Quinn’s not-so-traditional take on a steak & seafood grill with the addition of some South American twists.


 You will not find the classic steak sauce of America but chimichurri, the traditional condiment found in Argentina.  You will also find great combinations of flavors in every dish from the Quinoa salad to the Flat Iron steak to the seafood dishes. The kitchen crew work hard to put out amazing dishes utilizing as much regional and organic product as they can and the latest in modern cooking technology.


 The dining area is a comfortable industrial-rustic room featuring classic and modern guitar music,  red ceilings, warm colored walls and spattering of metal work from Gagnon Welding, giving it a not-at-all pretentious but a welcoming ambiance that makes you wanting to come back. All throughout the space you will find beautiful black and white photographs of local Washington destinations taken by local artists.

The cozy bar features a large collection of American Whiskies, great local beers on tap and highly rated bottle beers from all over the United States and Europe. The wine list is priced to allow the guest to be able to enjoy a great bottle during their dining experience for not the price of any other restaurant – anywhere.


 With no busy, noisy streets or parking lots Flat Iron Grill’s large deck is the ultimate destination to enjoy the great happy hour and sunny days with friends and family. Another amenity is the private dining room that can accommodate up to 26 for anything from business, holiday or rehearsal dinners to meetings and even sporting events on the rooms’ private television.

    The food is fresh and exceptional. Great spices and flavors. I got the Apple Fritter Bread Pounding for dessert and I have to say it is one of the best desserts I have ever had. Unique, flavorful, and not too sweet. The wine list was extensive and provides a great selection at good prices.
