A word from Stacks at Steam Plant
Our restaurant, Stacks at Steam Plant, offers a distinctive approach to dining in which we work with local farmers and ranchers to create dishes that celebrate the best our region has to offer. The restaurant offers seating with views of the 80-foot ceilings, old boiler pipes and catwalks as well as to the pub down below. Steam Plant Brewing Company & Pub showcases it"s very own nationally-acclaimed, hand-crafted beers using regionally grown grains and hops. The menu here offers our Chef's own twist of traditional pub fare, including meats and fish smoked right here inside our smokehouse.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Mix excellent cuisine with the most unusual ambience - The shell of a steam plant! It was magnificent. Due to its past, the building has numerous rooms of varying sizes that accommodates guests of varying group size. Hallways, boilers, every room is being used in the most creative way! Just loved it!"

  • "Waitress was rude and rolled her eyes at us a couple times. I was trying to show out of town visitors a good time, but she kinda wrecked it."

  • "My mom is vegan and when I reserved, I ask that vegan foods be highlighted as options. I was impressed when the waiter came back and explained how the dish could be modified to be vegan. The service was excellent and the food was great."

  • "Family as in town so we wanted to make dinner memorable. We were celebrating a 40th wedding anniversary and a birthday. The history of the Steam Plant and the remodeling to transform it into a restaurant was of great interest. Since we had an 18-month old with us, special seating requests were made and accommodated."

  • "Everything we tried here was horrible. The food was unbelievably bad (beer cheese soup, pork osso bucco, black and blue sirloin). We tried 4 different beers and 2 red wines and all of them were horrible. How this place is still in business is a mystery. The only positive was our server, Anthony, who was friendly and pleasant and knowledgeable. We will never return."

  • "We had a large group (15) and they did a wonderful job of setting us up in a private area. The food was amazing and the service was good. We had a little mix up on the delivery of two steaks and who they went but overall I would love to go back again."

  • "The food at Steamplant was good and the restaurant week deal was one of the better ones for the money. I recommend a booth away from the railing because kids and even some adults like to hang on the railing which means you have people staring at you while you eat in the half moon shaped booths"

  • "My younger sister asked our waiter about substituting a sauce because she was lactose intolerant. He went above and beyond and brought her two sauces to try as well as checking the rest of the meal and making substitutions where needed. Fabulous service abd delicious food!"

  • "Aside from trying to find decent parking (which is always a challenge in the city), this place is not to be missed! Great food, interesting menu, fantastic brews, unique ambiance, fair menu pricing for the quality of food and experience you get. Do not miss this one!"

  • "My husband and I went to Stacks for a romantic Valentine's dinner. We made a reservation via Open Table & arrived a few minutes early. When we approached the hostess stand they were seating people as they arrived-our reservation apparently meant nothing. We waited for over 20 minutes-yet there were open tables in the restaurant and our reservation had been for 8pm.Our waitress sadly did nothing to redeem the experience. She was not friendly- curt and mechanical. We'd never been to Stacks & had questions about the building & its history, but she treated our questions like they were annoying. The food was amazing.the Coal bunker cheese bread was incredible.my husband ordered a rib eye-great cut, perfectly cooked. My chipotle pork chop-delish!"

  • "I had the roasted salmon/veggies & red potatoes... It was good overall,fish a little salty.. 2nd dinner was black & white tuna...could have been cooked more & was tough.. Mushroom soup was good..Food took a long time to arrive... We felt waitress was over worked & the place was understaffed for a Saturday nite.. I expected far better service fro $$ spent"

  • "The ambience was great and the history behind the steam plant was amazing. We were not impressed by all the food. My mom got the ribeye and that was excellent but my girlfriend and I got the special and were very disappointed in the New York steaks. I think staying consistent with your portion sizes is one thing..a gentleman next to us got the special and his New York steak looked amazing and actually that is why we ordered it. When ours came they were so thin that if you put ours together it would of maybe been as thick as his. Plus are food was barely warm like it had been sitting awhile and we had to send it back to warm up."

  • "My wife, son, and I had eaten dinner at Stacks a half-dozen times before, so we knew it, liked it, and were feeling enthusiastic about it when we returned a few nights ago. This latest visit was disappointing, though, mostly because of the service. We spent too much time at the restaurant because of having to wait and wait for our waiter to bring dinner and then return once we were through, even cutting him slack because we were at the restaurant on a busy evening, the one right after Valentine's Day. The helper who brought our dinner to the table was curt too. The food was good but not hot enough. Overall I felt bad for my mom because she was the one who paid for our dinner."

  • "The décor of the Steamplant is truly unique. Much of the original building is still intact and visible. The outstanding menu and use of local ingredients just added to a memorable dining experience."

  • "Made reservations, our names were called and instead of taking us into the restaurant portion we were taken to a small area in the "commons" where they had 9 two person "card" tables set up. This immediately made us feel like we were placed in the overflow section. There was no divider between the seating area and main walkway so people waiting to be seated would walk by and look right at us. noise level made it hard to hear. something sounding like real heavy door kept slamming. asked for decaf coffee, it was luke warm at best. temperature where we were at was cool. Had salad and wild mushroom soup. Soup was just a very salty broth with mushrooms in it. not good. Waiter was very good and did not charge for soup."

  • "Second time to the plant, very glad we had reservations. We were seated very close to our reservation time. The room we ate in had room for 24 and was fairly loud. Once one or two of the noisier groups left the atmosphere and noise was much better. The food, smoked salmon pasta and the Greek chicken pasta were fantastic. We will go back but probably see if we can get a quieter table or location."

  • "It took quite a awhile to recieve appetizers and drinks. The lemon drop was very good but took 20minutes to get. We noticed a number of other couples receive foods sooner. Even though we were first seated. Quite honestly the food was blah. I guess i expexted WOW for the price. Overall we were there for an hour and a half which seemed like a long time waitimg for meals to arrive. Also dont order mustard sause on wings it tasted like feet."

  • "My date and I were pleased to have dined here on valentines day. our server was super friendly and not a blanket. There was a bit of a wait but that is expected so any person with common sense shouldnt be upset with a wait on a day like that. the food came out hot and was delicious, little bit of extra sauce i could have gone without on the pork chop but it was still tasty. For the price I was pleased and was also very fortunate to get a very nice table which was the stereotypical dining experience youd see on tv versus a small table by the railing like many folks had. so granted a very fortunate seat i was pleased with everything and only spent 100$ with 2 mid price ranged meals, 2 drinks, an appetizer 2 salads and a pretty generous tip."

  • "We went to Stacks for Valentines Day, and had reservations for 8pm. We go there are tried to check in at about 7:50 and were told to come back at 8 to check in. When we did this, we were told that they were a little behind on seating people, but it shouldn't be too long. We waited. And waited. We were finally seated at about 9:10. Our waitress was awesome, as was the food, but the hour+ wait put a damper on the experience. The calamari was excellent, as was the beer and cheese soup. I got the Pork Osso Bucco and my boyfriend the Tri-Tip. Both dishes were about 8/10, but good portion sizes. Overall I would recommend Stacks, but stick to weeknights or maybe lunch."

  • "First off, we arrived at 7:20 and wanted to check in for a 7:45 reservation. We were told to come back at 7:45, so looked around and then sat on the foyer at the entrance till 7:43. By this time there were 7-8 sets of diners in line so we got behind them. When we got to the hostess station we were told they were seating people on a first come first served for the 7:45 reservations. Even though they remembered we were there 20 minutes earlier. 45 minutes after our reservation and in the bar and we were finally seated. The bar service was below average, no wine list at table and had to get from bar. Ten minute wait to order. Food took over 30 minutes to arrive and fortunately was excellent. Not sure I would go back or recommend to friend."

  • "Besides having to wait 45 mins after our reservation time for a table, all was great. We had the oysters and tuna poke for app, and rib eye for a meal. The server was great and offered free dessert for the wait. The bar was fine to wait, friendly server, good space."

  • "Food was avg. at best. The New York Steak looked Like pot roast. The food was plated poorly. For the price you will not see me back. One of the coolest spots, to bad the food was so bad. Our waiter was very nice!"

  • "Since it was Valentine's day, we made reservations to eat at a new restaurant. We heard a lot about this place and we're excite to check out a new restaurant. However, when we arrived on time, we we're asked by the hostess if we thought we'd be done in an hour and 20 minutes. Apparently they had booked their tables to tight and wanted to make sure we'd be gone. We found this really inappropriate. The ambiance of the steam plant is great! And there is so much potential for this location. However the food is average at best. For instance, I ordered the New York steak but what I got was prime rib. I asked the waitress if I received the right dish and she assured me it was...l but I've never seen a steak look like prime rib."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Everything about this place is very cool, except the food, which we would rate average to below average. Nothing we ate was special or memorable. It is a great place to go for drinks and maybe appetizers. Parking can be a little tricky, but they will pay if you have to park in the pay lot just north of the restaurant."

  • "The majority if our food was cold and/or not fully cooked the table was not cleared regularly so it was cluttered."

  • "We had a wonderful time! Both my husband and I had previous meals here, and they were not-so-great. We did not want this to be our special choice for my brother and sister in laws' birthday dinner. But they choose The Steamplant as the place they wanted to go, so we went. What a pleasant surprise! The food was delicious, the drinks were delicious, and our Server was wonderful. We had a great time...thank you!"

  • "My wife and I enjoyed our dinner. She had the butternut squash ravioli and I had the chipotle pork chop. Service was quick and attentive throughout the evening. We shared the beer sampler and that was very good as well. Great food and drink plus a unique, museum type setting made for a great evening!"

  • "Saturday was our first visit to the Steam Plant. We sat down at a table in the bar at 6:30 pm, and within 5 minutes had ordered a drink. It took 30 minutes of waiting as one bartender, who was making drinks for the entirely packed out bar area, as well as the entire restaurant on the floor above. In the bartender's defense, I saw that he had the drinks made and sitting at the server's pick up area at the 20 minute mark. It was another 10 ten minutes before the server brought them to us. It was such a downer that we finished our drinks and left."

  • "Our group (8-12 people) has been to Stacks twice. We like it because each time we have been seated in the semi-private alcoves or seating areas. You still feel that you are part of the restaurant but it is quiet enough that the conversation at the table can be heard."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Stacks at Steam Plant is one of the better restaurants in Spokane. The menu has a lot of variety and the libations are extensive! Including a brewery, which creates many fine beers - especially the stout. All of this would be enough for any establishment, but Stacks is located in Spokane's old steam plant. The incorporation of the steam plant's infrastructure into the restaurant is definitely worth seeing."

  • "I planned to have my husband's birthday dinner here on a Monday night. It was very quiet, and we (our group of 6) pretty much seemed to have the waitress to ourselves which was great. The food was presented nicely and tasted delicious. I am looking forward to eating there again!"

  • "We enjoyed the Stack @ Steam Plant for a family Christmas Eve dinner as we did not want to cook and have the chance to spend a quality evening out with our teen boys. This was a great choice as we were allowed to order more pub food from the bar to be served at our table in the dining room. (teen boy friendly menu) We had a great experience, service was excellent and the environment was very good. Parking was not an issue either. That is a huge plus for downtown Spokane."
