Happy Hour at Daniel's

Once Seattle’s premier fine-dining steakhouse, Daniel’s now attracts a crowd that prefers traditional hearty fare, big portions and a killer view over linen-draped tablecloths and expensive stemware. It’s the 180-degree view of Lake Washington and the Leschi Marina that continues to make this one of Seattle’s best destination restaurants. That view comes with a price, however, which makes Daniel’s happy hour one of the best bargains in town. From 3-6:30 p.m. daily in the bar, you can sample some spendy appetizers for half-price. You can’t lose with anything on the menu, but the bacon-wrapped scallops ($8), the jumbo Gulf prawn cocktail ($8) and Daniel’s popcorn shrimp with Sriracha chili sauce ($7.50) are crowd pleasers. There are also martini, draft beer and wine specials. Even though Daniel’s has a reputation for catering to the well-heeled crowd, the staff couldn’t be more hospitable and accommodating towards folks who are there solely to take advantage of this awesome dining deal; proof that a spectacular view and good cheap food puts everyone at ease.
