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.
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 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 Owner

With more than 37 years in the restaurant business, Sean Quinn is committed to providing quality, affordable restaurant dining, close to home.

Years ago, Sean cooked and ate his way through Argentina and felt he had to bring the flavors back with him. He helped create Asado – an Argentine steakhouse. Yep. He’s the guy who brought “that flat iron steak thing” to Seattle.

Deciding he wanted to have a restaurant closer to home, he opened The Flat Iron Grill.

Never one to sit idle, he expanded next door with The Black Duck Cask and Bottle House and later The Iron Duck Public House in North Bend. Now the proud owner of three successful restaurants, he enjoys keeping the quality high and creating the kind of menu you want to tell your friends about.

Sean always wants his food to take center stage and create an atmosphere that keeps people coming back over and over again. We hope you agree.

  • Doug H.

    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.

    The soups are to die for; I dream about them at night. And the sandwiches are so good that there is never anything left on the plate.
