A word from Casper Fry
We take our inspiration from the world around us. From Casper and a simpler time when American craftsmanship insured quality, and most foods were fresh, and grown locally. At Casper Fry we’ve crafted each detail with thought and care. Designing a restaurant, and a menu that is reflective of the classic foods of comfort, which invoke nostalgia, yet inspire us to reinvent. We’re taking a modern approach in recreating authentic Southern dishes, relying on the beautiful foods of our region. We feel strongly about reinvesting in our local economy, supporting our local farmers and ranchers, and contributing to a sustainable environment. We think it’s important to know the story about the food we eat. As a family with roots here, we’re excited to participate in the revitalization of the historic South Perry neighborhood. At Casper Fry we embody and embrace the vital strands of this essential fabric of our town, and we promise to always deliver non-complicated, farm inspired American true f

    We had a party of five, all of us were first-time patrons. Easy parking. We had reservations and our table was set and ready for immediate sitting. Had to switch out a chair because the back was extended out too far but otherwise comfortable. Since we were new, I wish we had been instructed a little better on the drink and food menus, but otherwise our waiter was attentive and provided good service. Didn't have to wait too long. Food was excellent. Love the idea of local produce when able. Never felt rushed...we comfortably lingered after dinner for conversation.

    First the down side: I wasn't crazy about the flavors of what I ordered, and the music was a bit too loud, but other than that it was a truly wonderful experience. I would definitely go back. I'll order something different next time. The service was absolutely the best. Not only were the servers attentive and friendly, they were totally knowledgable about the food and the wine. The QUALITY of the food was superb. I love the idea of using locally grown food. Thank you.

  • How about that reservation?
    SilverThread
    Dined on 2/21/2014
    We had a reservation for 4 for 6:30 on a Friday night. Reservations are a necessity for Friday nights - the place was jammed. "Our" table was still occupied but the table next to it was not and the people slated for it were already 15 minutes late. We waited for another 15 minutes before we were seated at that table. The people at "our" table didn't leave for another 30 minutes after that. When I questioned the reason for making us wait I got a pretty unresponsive response. I was not impressed. That aside, the food and service were excellent. The place was, unfortunately, extremely noisy. Conversation was nearly impossible. We will go again, but not on a Friday night.

    Dined on 2/21/2014
    We have been to Casper Fry's before and liked the food. We asked to sit at a table with chairs rather than a tall bar table with stools. The hostess said I no can't do that the computer put you at a tall table. There were only two other groups in the place at the time. My wife' short legs go numb when they dangle from those tall seats and it is not very relaxing. She also recently had surgery on her back. Hostess still said no sorry can't do that. When we left there was still five ( yes I counted) tables open. Don't know why she would not seat us at a table?

    Casper Fry is a breath of fresh air for the Spokane culinary scene. Creative menu, equally creative cocktails, and a warm & inviting atmosphere with great personality. Food was delicious, service was perfect, and most importantly for us, they absolutely nailed the lighting. At the top of our list when choosing a restaurant for a romantic date night, or a night out with friends. Thanks for a great meal.

    The atmosphere of the restaurant is terrific. The owner also took special care of us when one of our meals was not up to it's usual standard; she took it right off the bill! They take great care of their customers, wanting everyone to have a great experience and come back time and time again.

    Dinner out with my brother and his wife. Wanted to show off our city and its dining scene. Service was great, food was great, nice space to spend time in. Only thing I might do is block the view into the kitchen from the table. Not bad really, just not ideal. Overall, a great night out.

    Found this little gem just before Valentine's day weekend. Made reservations for a small group (9) for Valentine's day evening. Sometimes it isn't the best to try a new restaurant on a busy night like that but our experience was wonderful. Everyone in our party loved the casual urban ambiance. We ordered a few appetizers and a diverse number of entrees as well as a few desserts...and were not disappointed in any. The service was very good...our server was very pleasant and patient with our group (many questions about the menu, since it was first time for all). Our meals arrived in a reasonable time and together...which isn't always the case when you have nine at your table.

    Amazing from the moment we stepped in the door! The ambiance is awesome! We had a large group for Valentine's Day plus a baby and they were fantastic! The incredibly delectable food, the warm & prompt service and the unique old fashion drinks are always above and beyond what we expect! Their weekend brunch is fabulous, too!

    Driving up to the restaurant, we did not know what to expect. Once we walked in, we fell in love with the decor and fell even more in love with the food. For fresh, southern food, with a more northern twist. Cannot wait to go back for brunch!

    We've heard wonderful things about this restaurant but our experience wasn't that great. We couldn't place it, but everything on our plates, from chicken to vegetables to biscuits had the same flavor and it wasn't appealing to us. Guess our tastes are more simple but it wasn't for us.

    Ordered the Ono special. Way over cooked. When we told our wait person, he was gracious and immediately took it away. Gave us another in about 15 minutes, but alas it was overcooked as well. Also ordered the Sea Food Hot Pot, normally one of my favoriets, but it too was a little over done. It is a cool place and will not give up on it.

    Dined on 2/8/2014
    I have been to Casper Fry multiple times for dinner so I was excited to try brunch. For what might have been the first time in my life, my entire family LOVED it! Usually one of us is unhappy when we go out, we have very differing tastes. Casper Fry proved it was possible for all six of us to have a great meal out together. The brisket and eggs with grits was to die for. My brother in law devoured the shrimp sandwich. We will be back!

    We have now been to Casper Fry twice and have enjoyed both visits! Now both sets of friends we have taken have also taken their friends! I am afraid it is going to become so popular that we will never get a reservation again! Loved the cornbread! The Flat Iron Steak and Hamburgers are to die for!

    Having been to this restaurant several times for dinner, it is worth noting that the food is consistently good. The southern flair is ever present, however, the creative spin is very enjoyable. The flavors are fantastic and the wonderful aroma of a smokehouse hits you the second you walk in the door. Fun, busy, metropolitan style dining.

    Cool neighborhood restaurant. The small plates were good. The chicken was moist but a bit sweet for my taste. Not sure what the service is usually like but it took us almost 45 minutes to get chicken, grits, and a burger. The waiter was nice and gave us some complimentary pie.

    I have tried almost everything on the menu. Except they keep adding new surprises. This is a problem for me. I like to have a favorite menu item, that I know I can always go back to and I can count on it being great. The problem is, every time I try something new, it becomes my favorite. When I come back, I don't know what to order. Every thing is now my favorite. If they have a new item on the menu, I want to try it because I know it will be fantastic. But that is a problem. A good problem.

    Excellent food and brunch cocktails. Chairs hard for a long chit chat meal which is probably by design, but it is not the kind of soft plushy place where one wants to linger. These are old fashioned school seats like they had in desks long days ago. The high chairs by the round tables for two were fine but also good for quick chit chat and out brunch lasting about an hour was not one of memorable comfort, but the food was great. The maple bacon flavor outstanding. The hash browns so so and you would do better for that at a local diner. The coffee terrific but had to ask for refills. Nice place overall.

    A group of friends and I decided to get together for dinner, decided on Casper Fry based on their selection of comfort foods on their menu. Upon arrival, the place was half full. I instantly thought Boston. The staff and hostess were all pretty hip and I recall one of my friends using the term "yuppie". Music was playing, the staff was excellent, plenty of conversations were taking lace throughout the entire room. Not only was out waiter super friendly, but he got all 10 orders correct. The food was awesome! Appetizers came out in what seemed as instanly. I'd recommend the house sausage or shrimp. For dinner, pork chop or meatloaf. It got pretty loud, but that's expected on a Friday night. Overall, we loved it!

    I've been here several times over the past year. The flat iron steak was a sirloin cut. It was seasoned well, but tough. The waitress said that they have a different supplier. It was 45 minutes from the time we placed our order to get our food. The service has definitely deteriorated from a year ago. Not sure I'd go back.

    The minute you walk into Casper Fry, you feel at home. The atmosphere is filled with commradarie. Everyone is friendly, and attentive. We never had to wait long for our drinks, which of course, was inspired by the huge bar and it's selection. There is so much to say about the food, but there is just one word that will sum up our fare, excellent! We no doubt will no doubt return and mist definitely recommend it to others visiting A dreary Spokane, WA.

    Our family likes to explore new dining locations on our birthdays. We've been doing this since our daughter was in her early teens. She wanted to experience ethnic foods, and support local artisan restaurants. We've rarely been disappointed, and our trip to Casper Fry was no different. We're glad we made reservations for 7:00. It was't busy when we got there, but was full by 7:30. We enjoyed the Spicy & Sweet Shrimp as an appetizer, and cleaned the bowl. We ordered and shared bites of the Swordfish special - great flavors, the Brined Pork Chop - wonderful, and the Seafood Hot Pot which had nice variety of potatoes and seafood. Our vegetarian friend had the Pimento & Pickles with the Roasted Pear Salad. All was good, we will come back!

    My father can eat meatloaf more consistently than anyone I know. So, I ordered the meatloaf and it was very good. Spicy but not too spicy. I enjoyed meeting a friend there and trying a place that was new. We came early enough that I got a parking spot. That could have been a problem if we'd come much later. The seating wasn't the most comfortable but it was doable. However, I did like the inside of the restaurant. I will definately go back. The waiter was fine also.
