We had a wonderful dinner here with our teenage children. Our daughter would have liked to see more vegetarian/vegan options. Will return!!

A 57th anniversary of our marriage was a good excuse to dine at Stacks. The hostess was outgoing and friendly and elicited the reason we were dining there. Our waitress, prompt, precise, and caring, did not hover but anticipated our every need. A magnificent gifted desert was the perfect conclusion. A memorable evening enhanced by the employees of Stacks.

First Time Visit
Our group enjoyed the beer sampler presentation and praised the brews. Each ordered a different entrée. Lamb porterhouse had rave reviews, steaks and seafood all delicious. Very nice salads. Great ambience in a unique venue - our group enjoyed the self-guided tour after dinner.

We have been here several times. The food is usually really good. I had the ribs and my wife had the squash raviolis. The reason we go to the restaurant is for the building itself. It is AMAZING. If you are looking for a place to eat that has a great history, this will fit the docket. Show up early (or stay afterwards) and wander through the building on a self guided tour that will blow your mind! Oh yeah, and they brew their own beer...

Don't miss the rib eye steak.........it's 5 star, for sure!! The birthday group was treated to a massive dessert we all shared and the service was wonderful. We'll be back.

Bustling Resteraunt and Bar
Our visit to stacks was the perfect romantic evening. We made reservations on line because phone reservations are not accepted. The drinks and spirits were awesome; the appetizers were delicious and the food was average. As far as the menu goes, theres a good selection of entrees and meat dishes. With that being said, the venue was great and that was worth the slightly higher than average price. However, the dishes we ordered did not leave us saying..."I have to have that pasta from Stacks ASAP," rather "well, "maybe we'll come back sometime."

A special place
What a treat for our out of town guests to experience this unique space with such good food and friendly service!

I brought my mom here for her birthday and we were very pleased with the service, the ambience, and the quality of food! Thank you so much! It made her birthday all the more special. I felt like the wait staff were organized, real and very professional.

Unique and Delicious
I took my wife to Stacks to celebrate her birthday. This is one of the most unique and interesting restaurants you will find: it is set within the large industrial pipes, boilers, coal bins of a long-closed power plant. Tables are far enough apart to actually feel private. Stacks is one of the few restaurants where you can get happy hour prices at the dining tables. Food was tasty and a great value: I had steelhead with a scallop sauce, my wife had smoked salmon pasta. Everything was hot, fresh and tasty. Hostess Makenzie found us the perfect table for our event. Our server Brittney took great care of us, with spot-on recommendations and tips. They comped us an epic birthday ice-cream sundae with cookies and brownies aptly titled, "Wow."

Unique but not Pricey
Great atmosphere. Food has a selection of a bit of everything, but not a lot of vegetarian or light food. Large restaurant so service seemed spotty, especially for a Friday night. Worth it for the beer and atmosphere, if you are into those things.

My wife and I have been to the Steam Plant several times and every time we go we get wonderful service and amazing food. It is also a treat to get to poke around the building and explore all the history contained within its walls. The waitstaff are very courteous and flexible with small and large groups needs. The easy online table reservation system is very useful as well. After all of my experiences with dining at this establishment I fully recommend it to anybody.

Great food, service, ambiance!
First time and really enjoyed myself. Good was amazing! I really enjoyed the Jalapeño Beer! (Brewed by Steamplant)

The menu was very appetizing and extensive. Three out of the four of us were torn between two or more items and requested Kim, our server's, input. She hit it out of the ballpark with each recommendation! Every plate at the table was an exciting presentation, and followed through with fabulous taste. We were celebrating my husband's birthday - they presented him with a dessert large enough for the 4 of us. We will be back, there are many more menu items to try!

Exceptional Dining experience
In town for a wedding and we were recommended to experience Stacks at the Steam Plant. Was not disappointed. The atmosphere was unique, the service was excellent and the food was outstanding.

A Great Dining Experience
I have been to the Stacks several times, and I always enjoy the food there. The service is great, too, and extremely helpful. The building itself is fascinating in terms of the history of Spokane and a great architectural gem! It gives the restaurant a unique feel. I highly recommend the restaurant to anyone wanting a great place to go out to dinner to in downtown Spokane. The one downside to our dining experience this time was that we were placed in an area next to a large party even though we had a reservation and the restaurant didn't seem busy. We were a small group of 4 and we had a hard time talking and hearing each other because the large group was so loud. Make sure if you want a quiet corner to ask for it when you go!

We wanted a restaraunt downtown and something kind of nice. The Steam Plant fit the bill. Our server, Jackie, was very nice and seemed to know the menu. The food arrived right on time and was very good. The steak was much better than the one I had last week at Outback. Anyway, we were very happy, and plan to go back soon. Thanks!

Great atmosphere, delicious food and beer! I want to visit again, great for dates and groups as well.

Besides the wonderful service we received, it's a great place to celebrate just about anything. The atmosphere was simply unique and definitely a piece of conversation. The waiter was friendly and helpful, always smiling. Our drinks did take a while, but other than that it's a great place to dine. I would definitely eat here again.

Awesome time out with my wife. Fun and unique setting with amazing food. Pork Paso Bucco should not be missed. Amazing in home brews at an amazing price (for growlers).

Stacks at Steam Plant -"Owning it!"
The food was great, the garlic bread went to another level with it's herby-creamy topping. Their salads are meals in themselves, interesting vinegrettes and toppings. My Tri-Tip was cooked perfectly and the red-eye gravy was a first for me, but won't be my last. Looking at the menu there are a lot of things I am looking forward to going back to try. The portion sizes were large, but not to the point where we needed a box to take home. The menu has different price points for all of their food, making many of their choices attainable. I was impressed withthe diversity of the menu: Greek salad, Curried Chicken, Ribeye and fish and chips, and on and on. The beer selection was great - try the Vanilla Burbon Stout - It is AMAZING!!!

Very nice evening
We arrived much earlier than our reservation (6:45) on Monday night. I checked in and was offered a table. They were very flexible and told us to walk around and enjoy the old steam plant history and then they would seat us whenever we were ready. The hostess was awesome. The waitress was awesome too. Didn't rush us and was very accommodating to our need to take our time and talk. The only negative was that the veggies were barely warm. It was served on a cold plate. I had Salmon. It was excellent and the right temp. My date had steak. It was cooked to her preference. I'll be going back!
