  • Over Priced Red Lobster

    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 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.

    3 in our party had beef which they loved. i made the mistake of trying the halibut which I usually love, but was very disappointed. Not sure what I was served was actually halibut, it was small and overcooked and warm at best as if waiting on other's meals to be prepared. I should know not to order fish at a steak restaurant

    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.

    One of our all time favorites in Spokane. Service was very slow, but this was a first for us here. We also had reservations after a broadway show let out so I'm sure that's why. Staff was wonderful and food was great. Will of course be back again!

    Perhaps our expectation was too high given that Clinkerdagger's was recommended by the hotel, Open Table and residents of Spokane. We found the service to be excellent, but the food a bit of a let down as hot food was served at barely room temperature.

    The Clinkerdagger is one of the best restaurants in Spokane and we really do enjoy going there as often as possible. The food is always good and the service very prompt and courteous. Since we live out of town it's always a treat.

    My wife and I go for our birthdays and anniversary as a special treat. This time was quite a let down. We got a seat near the window like we asked, but our table was really slanted, so much that our glasses were constantly sliding and almost falling off. The waitress was very laissez faire about it just saying it was a silly table. We both ordered the filet mignon with the lobster tail this time because the last time it was outstanding. This time the filet was still pretty good, but everything else on the dish was in varying degrees of burnt. When this is the highest priced dish on the menu I feel like more attention should be given to the preparation. We may be looking somewhere else for our next celebration.

    We've been to Clink's many times and have never been disappointed. Three of us went on Thursday, August 7 for dinner. One had prime rib, I had salmon with hazelnut butter, and the third had salmon on a cedar plank. It was all excellent. I rarely order salmon anywhere but Clink's because it's the best. The service was attentive but not intrusive. My favorite place.

    Klinks has been our favorite Spokane restaurant since 1988. The atmosphere, view of the falls and amazing dining experiences always brought us back for more. The military moved us from Spokane, but we have returned after a 15-year absence. Ambiance and superb service are still amazing but there were disappointments with this return visit. The prime rib was smaller and not spectacular. A baked potato that always compliments a good prime rib wasn't available and the tiny sprinkle of fancy pants home fries was very sad. For $115 we left sorely disappointed, hungry and wondering what happened to this fine restaurant since our last visit.

    We went to celebrate an anniversary. We sat on the outside deck protected by plexiglass. The wind was blowing but by sitting on the upper deck we were protected somewhat from the gusts. Our server started off very attentive and pleasant but as it got a bit busier we did not get the service I had expected. My water glass was empty and not refilled until we were ready to leave. I realize it got busier but I think servers need to make an extra effort to take good care of all customers. And really, our tip is based on the quality of service. The food was excellent, although there was a mix-up and my husband's food was served several minutes after mine and where there was just the two of us it would seem easy to bring them at the same time.

    My wife had the ahi and it was good, albeit a little more done than I prefer so it was lacking the inherent richness of good tuna. The fried rice and sides were ok but a little bland. I had the halibut, which was cooked perfectly (not always easy with halibut), but the dish as a whole was lacking some sort of sauce or dressing to tie it together, especially with the raw, undressed arugula garnish. Roasted veggies were good (again, a sauce to pull it together would have made it work), but the corn puree was not good - sour flavor and gluey texture. Service, however was excellent - attentive without being pushy and very friendly and warm. I liked the restaurant and would return, just not for seafood.
