    Clinks is always a great place for dinner. As with everywhere in Spokane (unfortunately sometimes...) you can dress up or down and not feel out of place. Service is friendly and generally very attentive. The menu has a great selection of delicious sounding options.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 5/17/2009
    My wife ordered a chicken dish which was very good. I ordered a trout dish which was nearly inedible. Our friends had a ribeye steak and the halibut fish dish. He mentioned that the steak was OKAY. She said the halibut was 'almost' OKAY. Based on this first experience, I would not visit Clinkerdagger again for seafood. I honestly thought the restaurant 'Sawtooth Grill' was much better (and cheaper) in terms of seafood. Overall, Clinkerdagger has a very nice setting and an extensive wine list, but can greatly improve in food quality. I would not recommend this restaurant based on food alone.

    We went for my husband's 49th birthday! It was the best meal we have had in 16 years, We usually go to Beverly's and over the past years their service and food has really gone down hill. We will be back to Clinkendaggers for our anniversary and any other special occasions. I can't say enough about this place! P.S. the Creme Brulee was out of this world.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    The food is always fabulous. I love the view and the ambiance. We had a reservation at 6:45pm on a Friday evening and were warmly greeted and promptly seated in a location I requested when I made my reservation on-line. My husband had prime rib and I had the steak salad. We also ordered a side of asparagas, which was wonderful! We were both very pleased with our food and wine selection. We did not feel the service was as good as we have experienced in the past. Our waiter was not as attentive as we would have expected. That is the only negative. With the e-mail specials and gift cards available through Costco I am able to enjoy one of my favorite places...we will definitely be back!

My wife had the ribs and they were $25.00 there prime rib is $32.00 with no sides they are extra. what I am trying say is bring your money clip you will need it.

    Dining experience was good! We requested a window seat, and received a great table. The food, service, everything was very good. The only problem was the noise. We had two tables around us that were extremely loud and inconsiderate. Frustrating when you can't even hear your other member in the party talk because of the tables around you. But the food was great!

    My friend and I made this reservation for lunch, she had not been to Clinkerdaggers prior. I knew the view was spectacular at this time of the year, the Spokane River runs high and fast just before the falls. I had forgotten that the portions were hardy, so we had more food then we could eat in one sitting, even sharing. The food was prepared well,tasty and the presentation was appetizing. Our server was on top of her game. It was a very enjoyable experience!

    Service was awesome. We got two different dinner specials and were not overly thrilled. Mine was the mixed seafood grill - the salmon was pretty good, the scallops awesome but the shrimp overcooked. My husband got the flank steak and it had too much fat/grisel. Our side was the mushrooms and we were not impressed with those. Usually the food is top notch so I was a little surprised it wasn't just right! Would still go back!

    A wonderful place with great food. Would recommend it. Be ready to spend quite a bit. This is no cheap night out, but if your willing it's worth it. The one problem I had was trying to find it. You will see the sign but it is actually located downstairs in the Flour Mill Building - the sign really needs to say that and direct you but our group and another man wondered around outside in the cold for quite awhile before I decided to try and open the door. I only knew that something else might be in there because I had been in the building once before. Probably loose quite a few people that way.
