Steam Plant Kitchen & Brewery offers a distinctive approach to dining in which we work with local farmers and ranchers to create dishes that celebrate the best our region has to offer. The restaurant offers seating with views of the 80-foot ceilings, old boiler pipes and catwalks as well as to the pub down below. Steam Plant Brewing showcases its very own nationally-acclaimed, hand-crafted beers using regionally grown grains and hops. The menu here offers our Chef's own twist of traditional pub fare, including meats and fish smoked right here inside our smokehouse.

The filet mignon was not very tender and was very dry and came covered with an overpowering reduction.

What a unique treasure! Happy hour has great offerings and the beer is delicious. Sadly, they were out of their IPA for us. The service was spot on. The food- also delish. Raves for the halibut. The duck Condit also great but the portion seemed a bit short. All in all a fine dining experience.

It was good, but they were out of three different things we ordered. It made it not nearly as enjoyable, especially since it was my dad’s 60th birthday.

This is a really cool restaurant, and you are free to walk around and explore. I had the pizza, so did a friend neither of us cared for these at all... Our other friends got a steak and halibut and they were happy with those. I would recommend avoiding the pizza (also, gluten free crust was not gluten free).

We won’t be back....the food was fine, but it is so noisy and cramped it’s just not a place we wish to spend money again. Neighboring tables/chairs less than a foot apart?? You feel like you’re forced to sit with strangers while you’re trying to enjoy time out with your spouse....it’s awkward. Seems like the updates included trying to shove as many people into a small space as possible.

Very busy, but good food and drinks. The lounge/bar was a little understaffed but it server had a great attitude and was working hard to get us our orders. Highly recommended!

Thank you for making our anniversary so special. The food was fantastic as was the service. It was fun to see the history of the steam plant on display too. Will be back for sure!

We were immediately served drinks, but then we didn't see our waitress for another 45 minutes. We decided to leave before ordering food because the service was terrible.

This is a cute restaurant for beer lovers. They have a good variety of beers to try. The food menu is a bit limited but what we ordered tasted good. It is a casual spot and the interior is very quaint and fun. Different areas of the restaurant can be quite noisy but we ended up in a quieter section which was fine. The server was very friendly but a bit forgetful for things we asked for and had to be reminded to bring them.. overall we enjoyed our meal. The parking around the area is very limited. Fortunately we have a handicapped sign to park in one of the few spots near the restaurant.

Location and atmosphere was great. Drinks were slow and didn't have water refills. Food was ok. Had a dry pork chop, dead fishy smelling stealhead salmon pasta and over cooked shrimp skewered pasta. Because of the atmosphere we will be back to try the bar and grill.

We never received our dinner and had to leave after waiting 1 1/2 hours! We love Steam Plant, but they totally blew it. Our order was "lost" and we ended up having to leave without eating our dinner. The manager was able to pack up 2 of our pizzas for us to eat in our car on the way back to our event that we ended up being late for. The waiter and manager were very apologetic, and the manager didn't charge us for our drinks or pizzas. He also gave us a gift card for future use. I'm sure we'll be back, but we're just bummed this had to happen at such an inopportune time.

Make sure you get a table away from the service door! Resv was at 6pm on Friday night, almost empty, open tables everywhere in sight, but yet our party of 4 were sat at booth in back. No view and lack of service attention...out of sight, etc. Food ok, nothing to write home about. Unique facility, should be better in all other respects.

Do not order the Margarita pizza. It was like soup and was burnt on the bottom. Literally the worst I’ve ever seen.

An unusual interior and the food is much better since they updated everything. We hadn't been there for a long time as the food in the past was average. The food has changed and it was very good as was the service. We would recommend it without any reservation, eating in the old Spokane steam plant is a must.

This used to be a great place with great food but has changed over the past two years. The Caesar salad lettuce was brown at the edges. The gem salad was gritty with dirt. The halibut was over cooked with no flavor at $40.

We were placed at the end of an empty room. There was no vibe.

I came here with my family, husband and three kids. We didn’t know what to expect but this place was incredibly interesting. We ended up walking around for an extra 40 minutes after we finished lunch. They have local beers on tap, very good kids menu, as far as the food not for kids, I had clams and a kale salad both of which were relatively good. My husband had a burger which he says was also good. The kids seem to like their food as well which is great. The ambience is what really made this place stand out, multiple levels very interesting pipes that made up the steam plant. There are a really cool cat walks and various little rooms and places to walk around and see on multiple levels. Some of those rooms have been turned into offices and it’s just an incredibly cool vibe. I definitely recommend coming to this place if you’re in town.

Went to have a birthday lunch, first time there. It was a really neat place, the ambience alone is worth having a bite once. We had a cocktail and the kids had a soda with some fun huckleberry syrup in it. The food came out at a good pace and everything was pretty tasty, you can tell they're making stuff from scratch. The service was probably the only thing that was a bit under whelming.

Good service. Drinks were great. Our reservation was honored quickly and our table was great. Loved the ambiance of the Steam Plant. Cesaer salad was good but no croutons. Patty melt was great, bread was grilled just right. Pizza was good also. I'd come back. It's a unique environment that makes me proud of Spokane.

The food was of good quality and was good, but felt like it missed the mark for full flavor. The lemonade was too sweet and not fresh tasting as I'd expect. Service was really friendly and didn't feel like things took too long.

Very cool building and remodel. Worth it just to see the retrofitting! Staff was friendly and efficient. Nice energy level without being too loud. Food was good although with a party of 5 some dishes were a hit and others a miss. Definitely recommend it to others for a fun night out.

Two times in the last six months we have eaten here and have enjoyed the experience.
For our anniversary dinner, we chose this of all the other to have good food in a great place.
