My friends meet here every Sunday. The happy Hour specials (which I assume are on the regular menu) go from great to good: fresh wild king salmon (umm), ribs (yum) and lots of other choices on the menu that changes at least 2x a year....More

I haven't been to the BluWater since the 80s when I believe it was called the Leschi Lake Cafe. The good news is that it has the same great location and laid back ambience from back in the days of big haired blondes and mullet...More

If you google Daniel's at Leschi, it's in the same side of the street, about 3 doors down. It's right on the water. Parking's a breeze.

We opened The 3rd BluWater Bistro location in the Leschi neighborhood on March 13, 2004.

Mick McHugh handed the reigns over to us after 22 successful years of running the Leschi Lake Cafe. With a slight remodel we cozy'd up the place, added some fantastic rollback windows, high back booths, some flat screen TV's, and leather furniture by the fireplace. The menu reflects all the goodness that a cozy bistro should offer, including the ever famous & popular "Lake Side Cafe" Fish and Chips... gotta keep the neighborhood happy.

Stop in for some brunch on the weekends or some late night food.
