    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

    The service is good, but the music was too loud. It was strange listening to top 40 music in an upscale restaurant. We sat outside, and the view was great. The calamari was too soggy with grease, but the steamer clams were delicious. Drinks are overpriced.

    We went to celebrate our anniversary and the only reason we bothered to try it was because we'd received a giftcard. We prefer to go to smaller, local restaurants instead of chains. After a wonderful night and great food we paid our bill and as we got up to leave the server made a rude remark about our using a gift card, as if we could not afford to eat there without one. It completely threw us off that he could be so rude. While the food was great, I'd much rather spend my time and money somewhere where the staff is less judgmental and the food is just as good. We will not be back.

    The pros; nice drink menu, we sat outside which I highly recommend, hotel gave us a coupon for free crab and artichoke dip-yummy!, my husband and I started with soup. I had clam chowder, which was great and hubby had lobster bisque which I didn't care for but he liked. Cons: entrees, hubby ordered prime rib (nothing special) and a petite lobster tail-rubbery. I had the scallops-no taste. Heavily coated nut/asiago mix. Entrees were not piping hot-had been sitting under the light waiting to be ran to our table. mashed potatoes and au gratin potatoes tasted greasy, side of vegetables-mushy and yucky. Great place to go for drinks and apps, but go elsewhere for dinner! Overall, the entrees did not taste fresh or delicious for the price point.

    We looked forward to treating our son to a special dinner out to celebrate the beginning of his 1st year at GU. We selected Clinkerdaggers based on the reputation of the chain and a few online ratings which had us thinking it would be worth the splurge. We were SORELY disappointed. Though the service, atmosphere, and view were satisfactory, our meals were incredibly disappointing. The steak was tough and dry as was my herb stuffed chicken. The potatoes au gratin looked and tasted as if it had been reheated in a microwave. Even the side of gravy accompanying the meal couldn't help since it was cold and gelatinous. The pre-meal bread was the best part. Save your hard earned $$$ and skip this place.

    We came here to celebrate my husband birthday. We are from out of town and I booked this restaurant after reading many good reviews. We sat at the patio and the view was great. However, the food was lousy. The lobster bisque was horrible and steak way over cooked and salty. The service was friendly but unprofessional. Our waiter was probably a newbie.

    Food was OK. The cost does not match the quality. Even the local fish special was subpar. Outdoor patio overlooking the falls was gorgeous and they were very accommodating to us having our baby and stroller However, the waitress seemed to be a little preoccupied. The food seemed like it had been sitting under a heat lamp for awhile.

    We chose to go to Clinkerdaggers for our 30th Anniversary celebration. We asked to sit outside for the view and ambiance. They accommodated us immediately when we asked to be moved inside when the bees became to friendly. The service was great, the food was great and we received a complimentary desert to share. The tables are somewhat close together and noise was a little high inside but not bad. The price was high, but was commensurate for the product delivered. I liked that even though we were a row back from the windows, we were a level higher and were able to set much of the views of the river front.

    We go to Clinkerdaggers for special occasions. It is one of the more expensive restaurants in town but routinely very good. Was slightly disappointed this go round (which is rare) with somewhat bland tasting food. Won't give up on them though, my husband's food was a bit better than mine.
