Fun at the 520 Bar & Grill

The 520 Bar & Grill is right smack dab in the middle of Old Bellevue. Although space can be limited and the restaurant can get loud, its welcoming, casual and classy atmosphere makes 520 one of Bellevue locals’ favorite spots. Year-round outdoor seating (covered with a plastic canopy) is complete with heat lamps and blankets, making it a great place to meet up with friends, coworkers, or even a date. An added bonus: there’s always a game on TV.

520 has pretty cocktails and a wine list full of a variety of Washington, Oregon, and California wines to choose from.  The food choices are interesting and have definitely improved over the years. 520 can be pricey but you’ll definitely leave fulfilled. We had a great time at and, although we were hoping for healthier options on the menu, our service was fantastic!

It depends on what you order. The nachos are always delicious (too bad they weren’t on the HH menu!).

Drinks

It was nice to get $3 off my favorite wine for HH!

Service

Superb! The waitress was super friendly and smiley–probably the best I’ve ever had here. She let me taste the wine before I ordered.

CAMI’S CORNER:
Parking

There is close parking but not on-site. Bellevue Park is under construction so no parking is available there.

We chose this Sunday because there was a Seahawks game so there were a lot of fans! 520 is a super cute environment (with some super cute guys)!

The HH menu is super limited although the waitress did offer some gluten free options.

I like the fact that you can order any bar beverage off the menu for some $ off!

An okay value for what you get. However, there aren’t as many healthy options as there are at other places.
