A New Restaurant Is Coming To Green Lake Bar and Grill

This just in…

The Seattle PI reports that Lunchbox Laboratory will be taking the space of the soon-to-be shuttered Green Lake Bar and Grill (2200 East Green Lake Drive). According to the P.I., Lunchbox Laboratory, owned by the same parent company as the Grill, could open as soon as March 12. The article mentions that the Green Lake Bar and Grill has been losing money so the company decided to launch Lunchbox Laboratory instead because it has been a “wildly popular” model in South Lake Union, Gig Harbor, Redmond and Bellevue.¬†Green Lake Bar and Grill has been in Green Lake for 17 years.

Hope you like burgers Green Lake! It’s looking like the east side of Green Lake will be getting its fair share of burger spots over the next several months. Besides already established Teddy’s Bigger Burgers, Little Big Burger is slated to open in Green Lake Village in the coming months, just 2 blocks from the new Lunchbox Laboratory.

While each Lunchbox Laboratory restaurant menu differs slightly, it’s safe to say we can expect a large menu of burgers, shakes, beer, wine, cocktails and a fairly robust happy hour menu.





  • > After 17 years of serving families across the street from the lake, the Greenlake Bar and Grill had seen declining sales in the past couple years, Schmidt said.

    Would be interesting to know what he attributes the lagging sales to. Over the same period, street parking in that area has become increasingly difficult. That corner has metamorphosed many times over the years, beginning with the home of former Seattle mayor William Wood. Wood was one of the great land speculators in the early Green Lake community in the 1890s.

  • The food and service there has been notoriously bad for years. Their sister location, Eastlake B&G is managed the exact same way and it stunk too. The location is literally the only thing going for it. My guess is sales tanked when Shelter opened across the street, giving them much needed competition.
