    Our special evening was a great success - the view of the falls just before sunset was wonderful, the lobster bisque and fresh oysters delish, and our entrees of scallops and steelhead were perfectly prepared and plated. The lobster bisque is especially fun, as well as delicious, as the presentation is done tableside. The waitstaff was attentive without hovering. All in all, one of our top 10 restaurant meals ever.

    I hadn't been to Clinkerdagger for many years. It was my boyfriend's birthday and I wanted to make it a memorale weekend experience. I had the hotel booked and our couple's massage. I suddenly thought of Clinkerdagger and wondered if it would prove to be as good as the many years back when I had frequented it. We were delighted when we arrived for out 4:00 reservation and seated by the river. The view was wonderful and the staff were amazing! Our service was outstanding and the food was incredible! Thank you for making this a birthday that he will never forget!

    As always, the food is outstanding and the atmosphere charming and warm and friendly. The prices are alarmingly high to the point that this is, for us, only viable for a special occasion and no other time. That is a shame, because it is a wonderful place. We have been here several times, but the prices this visit were astonomically high, and out of line with the dinner received. I will have to think long and hard whether or not we will ever return, the prices are simply out of reach.

    While Clinkerdagger has a very good waitstaff in general, they tend to be oddly stiff (not warm/engaging) & they definitely cater to large, business groups in terms of who gets their attention. Brittany stands out in the most positive of ways. She is warm, engaging, is attentive to all of the clients in her service area, asks on-target questions about what you might like (e.g. in wines) & offers good suggestions, checks back repeatedly & takes the time despite an abundance of clients to ask you questions about yourself/why in Spokane etc. In my many years of dining out, she is memorable & distinctive; she's one of the very best (e.g. top 5) wait-persons I've had.

    Have had two small family birthday events in the past two months, one supper and one lunch. Both were great. Top-notch customer service, great food, gorgeous view, and little touches by the staff made both events special. We really enjoyed being fussed over! Highly recommend as a great experience. Little curled ribbons on table were in good taste.

    We were recently in Spokane for Gonzaga Family Weekend and made reservations several weeks in advance requesting a table by the window with a view of the river. When we arrived we were quickly taken to a table by the window with the river view as requested. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious! This is our fourth time visiting Spokane and our fourth time dining at Clinkerdaggers.

    Was visiting Spokane for the weekend, so my boyfriend and I decided to dine at Clinkerdagger for the scenic view! Though it was nighttime, we could still see a bit of the river :) We shared the fried calamari and the mixed green salad (which were both delicious) and the rock salt roasted prime rib, which was outstanding! Truly one of the best prime ribs I've ever had! Our server was very nice and accommodating, along with the rest of the staff. If there's one thing I would have done differently, it would have been to push up our reservation to an earlier time so we could have seen the beautiful view with the sun still out! But overall we had an excellent time.

    Our server was very nice. Atmosphere was great. Made my wife happy. But I was looking forward to having a nice, big juicy steak for lunch but found only one small one on the menu and it was "smoked" which I don't care for. So I ordered Steelhead which was tasty but extremely small. Still hungry, I ordered a $8.95 apple cobbler. Again tasty, but about the size of a large cookie. Finally got something big when the bill came: $74.00 before the tip, for two lunch entrees and two deserts, no beverage, no appetizer. Left with an empty wallet and empty stomach.

    The salmon was very good. The prime rib and pork chop were also very good. However, the scallops were overcooked, rubbery and tasteless. The au gratin yukon potatoes served with the scallops were also burned on the bottom and completely missed expectations. Recognizing that scallops are difficult to cook properly, but at $30.00 plus per diner, one would have expected better. The maytag salad, pea salad and burnt cream dessert were also very good as was the Cambria pinot noir. Overall a good dining experience.

    We have never been disappointed by the service or the food like many other places! Always such beautifully prepared and presented food! Always great warm personal service! Love the wine list by the glass, superior choices compared to other restaurants! We left wondering why we go any where else, when the steak and seafood dishes are always prepared to our liking! Also came in this time for a special being offered to Eat, Drink and Dine Members and as usual the special entree was exceptional! And the price was a bonus!

    Took my wife there for her Birthday dinner. Very nice atmosphere and view, but the service was poor. Waitress assisted my wife in picking out a wine, then came back 15 minutes later and asked us if we would like anything to drink. How about the wine you helped us pick out? That would have been nice. The food was decent but not worth the price. Then we asked about the birthday special, we were told the burnt creme. Little did we know we paid full price for it. Had we known that we would have just ordered what we wanted. Romantic place but needs work on their service.

    We choose this restaurant as the final good-bye for my dad. We gathered as a large group after his memorial and then this past week there were four of us that gathered again as we closed his estate and said our last goodbyes. It was a quite Sunday evening so it was very nice to just have a few words and enjoy great food. The service was excellent. Thanks
