Perry Street has a treasure in Casper Fry. We try to dine here at least once a month, and the bar is what drew us in initially. We come for the amazing cocktails and stay for the delicious food. Nectar Dos Deuses, heaven!! The rotating menu always has exciting offerings to share. Beautiful, rich, hearty portions. We will often just order appetizers to enjoy several tastes. The staff is beyond wonderful, and treats you like a good friend. Our only complaint is that they're closed on Monday!
What a nice place to meet and have good food, drinks, and good service! Thank you for making my last evening with my family delightful before holiday break is over.
It is hard to find a great southern restaurant up in the northwest. I have now found it. Had the chicken and green waffles and it was amazing. Love the space and what they have done with it, beautiful. They also had my favorite whiskey. I will be back. Try and the Mac and Cheese.
Attractive venue, good service, food was forgettable. Pork belly starter was cold, dry and lacking flavor; my wife's entre of chicken was good, but not great, and my skirt steak might have been good except for a distracting house seasoning applied in the kitchen, French fries were cold and tough, and the green beans cold and uncooked. All in all, we recommend giving these guys a pass for say six months - perhaps by then ------
Ambiance is nice if a little loud and tinny. The mixed drinks are fabulous and unique. The entrees are a bit on the small side. If you're going to charge this much for duck breast, you might want a bit more of the sides...very tasty butdft me wanting:(
This place came highly recommended for good reason. Each dish was incredibly flavorful and had its own creative twist that made it a bit different than expected. We had the sweet and spicy shrimp app and it was amazing. The caeser salads were nice and refreshing; not over done with dressing. Our friend had the house burger with egg and bacon and said it was very good. He suggested next time to order a bacon app as one slice was not enough! Although his slice was more steak like than any bacon I have ever seen. My husbands jambalaya was very awesome in flavor and even had him sweating a bit from warmth however, most of the shellfish was over cooked and the sausage was burned beyond ability to eat. Perhaps the bottom of the pot? I had the shrimp and grits and it looked like no other grits I have seen and they were far superior! Outstanding flavor, very rich, and my shrimp were cooked fine. We passed on dessert as we are more chocolate fans. We did order a very good bottle of Grayson cab that was something we would order again. Service was fabulous and we sat and chatted for an hour after dinner to finish our wine and never felt rushed or getting kicked out. We are from Montana and will definitely stop here again on our next visit!
The scallop dish was good except the collard greens were inedible. Every time we come here, the service is slow. This time was no different.
Our table was ready when we arrived and we were greeted and seated immediately. It take take a few minutes for a server to approach us, but once he did our service was top notch. My husband loved the Jambalaya, I had the shrimp & grits which were very good! Just the right amount of heat as to not mask the flavor of the cheesy grits. We will definitely be back!
We love the Perry district. The atmosphere of Caspers. Drinks are good food wasn't as good though as the past. Two of us had the tangy shrimp. Thought the oil need changed & over cooked. We also think they forgot to put dressing on the house salad. We've in the past loved both of those. Sorry for the comments but we thought you would want to know. We think it's a fun place overal.
The food is great. Really great! But the chairs (especially at the high tables) have to be the most uncomfortable I've ever sat in.
I surprised my husband with a brunch date. We both had a wonderful experience and a great beginning of an amazing day. The food, the ambiance and the service was outstanding.
Had high hopes and was let down. The food wasn't bad but not really what I expected at a higher end restaurant. Had the fried chicken, the chicken was ok but not spectacular, the collard green waffle was the highlight of the meal and very tasty and original. The veggies that were served I think as a garnish were ineddible. The carrots were woody and tasteless. My date had the scallops they were cooked perfectly but lacked flavor. The fried tomatoes and mashed potatoes sides were delish. The drinks were awesome the staff was great and attentive. The atmosphere was cool but the seats were uncomfortable and made me not want to stay for an extra drink.
When you are in the Perry Street District you should definitely give Casper Fry a look. The menu is eclectic and the preparation is excellent. The wait staff is generally friendly and attentive but not overly so. The space and decor are attractive and inviting but certainly not elegant. This is a good place to meet with friends and enjoy a reasonably priced meal. My go-to menu item is the whole Idaho trout (large plate) but also check out the daily specials. The only drawback a Casper Fry is the seating, and this is a pretty big one. The wooden benches and small wooden chairs are really uncomfortable and become annoyingly so after only a few minutes. We are really surprised that the management has not addressed this issue. It is the one thing that prevents us from visiting the restaurant more often.
I ordered the skirt steak and asked for it Medium. It came very rare. All food on the plate was cold. And I mean not just sitting on the counter to long cold, the potatoes tasted like they were just pulled from a refrigerator. I told the waiter and my plate was removed from the table, about 5 minutes later I was asked if there was something else I wanted. I wanted another steak but apparently that wasn't an option. Ended up with a burger instead. My steak was comped but had to pay for the burger. A good restaurant would have given me what I orded and not charged me for another menu option. Won't return to Casper Fry!!!
Don't bother making a reservation, because it clearly doesn't matter. We had a 7:00 reservation and arrived at 6:55. Our party of 4 stood in their entry way for 45 minutes (they don't have a waiting area) and watched them seat an 8 top, a 6 top and multiple 2 tops that all came in after us. When I asked the host he said "yeah, sorry. A table for 4 just hasn't come up". Unlucky??? What good is a reservation?
great food great atmosphere friendly hosts and waiters service was excellent the whole experiance was enjoyable tried new foods new drinks that pretty well sums it up thank you very much for the great time we all had at your restaurant also the restaurant was easy to find ample parking
This is a very popular spot, and a great asset to the neighborhood. The food was good but garlic was the main flavor profile. We were a small table of four and it was loud enough that the people diagonal to each other could not converse. We go for out for good company, food is a supplement to that , so Casper Fry will not be on our list of favorites.
Had heard about this, went there with my brother to try it out for brunch. I recommend the trout hash. We had a great server who gave us the history of the building, warned us about the offerings that were not on the menu and cautioned that reservations would be a good idea for dinner. I would definitely return, with my bro again, with friends/family or that special someone - single and looking, ladies!
Brunch is my favorite meal out . . . and Casper's is one of my favorite places to go to enjoy it. Great variety, fresh and delicious. Fun, historical neighborhood and eatery.
Food and drinks were fantastic as always. The staff is friendly and helpful. Will be back for more!
I will forever regret taking four out-of-town friends to Casper Fry for a weekend brunch instead of choosing Sante. I made a reservation for six. We were the first table seated when the restaurant opened. We placed our order in about fifteen minutes, as the staff brought us waters and coffee and served the other six tables who were also having an early brunch. We did not receive our food for another 45 MINUTES. When it finally arrived, two dishes were cold, as if they'd been sitting while the other entrees were prepared. While we waited for those 45 minutes three other tables received their meals, including those who arrived AFTER we did and without a reservation. When I asked to speak to a manager, there wasn't even one available and one of the waitstaff people refused to even come to our table to speak with us. Finally, a cook from the back came to our table and actually argued with us that due to our six-top, they had to spend 45 minutes making six brunch dishes, DESPITE the fact that it should have come as no surprise that there was a six-top, given that I made a reservation and we were the first table to arrive at the restaurant. Rude, unprofessional, insensitive, and pathetic. We will never return for business or for pleasure.
Food is awesome! Had Sunday brunch, eggs Benedict , porky belly, trout hash, and smoked brisket and gravy biscuit . We were catching up with an old friend so we didn't mind the hour it took to get our food.
Comfort food with an updated twist, foods you love with a little more flavor and a little more spice. Great cocktails!
Everything about Casper Fry is nearly perfect. My only complaints would be that the wait time for your food to be served is a little lengthy. But the wait is worth it...also I wish the menu was a little longer, but that's mostly because the food is fantastic!
It is rare to find a restaurant that knows how to cook fish correctly and Casper Fry will not disappoint. We loved the small plates and fresh salads as well. There was good variety and just enough spice. Bring friends and share. The service was good and attentive. This is our new favorite dining place in Spokane.
I'd describe Casper Fry as Southern with a "twist" . We had the fried chicken, it was light, crispy and flavorful. The chicken was served on a bed of the most amazing mashed potatoes I have ever eaten. My husband had jambalaya, very spicy and packed with flavor. The fried pickle appetizer was great too. I grew up eating fried pickles down south, but their version was not the traditional fried pickle I was use to, their take was surprisingly delicious. Love thus place!
My daughters and I went for a girls night on a Sunday evening. Service was great, food was great. Highly recommended. I have been several times and always tried something new. Everything has been excellent.
Set in te Perry St. neighborhood, Casper Fry delivers it's food, drink and atmosphere with a smile.
Travel a great deal and always on the prowl for a neighborhood bar/restaurant that gets it right. Casper Fry does just that. Inventive cocktails and tasty southern inspired menu to match.
The salmon and the fried chicken were excellent. The salad with balsamic drsg and candied pecans and fennel would have been wonderful, but it was drowned in the balsamic dressing. We had to ask for water refills after waiting a long while, as the waiter must have been too busy to check on us. He was not very friendly either. The place was empty at 5pm when we arrived, but within an hour it was full so I would recommend making reservations ahead of time. A fun place to go with a group I think. Nice area as well.
Casper Fry is just a solid, southern restraunt. After growing up in the south and moving to the PNW it's tough finding good southern food, but Casper Fry delivered. I got the fried chicken, one of the best meals of my life.
Atmosphere was fine. Service was fair. Wife and I had beef bbq ribs they were old and tasted reheated. Ordered drinks took way too long. Then ordered desert and was told they were out of coffee. Our guests were not sure they would go back either. We drove in from Post Falls. It was a Thursday evening at 6PM
If you have not eaten Southern cooking, Casper Fry is the place to go. Great atmosphere and an eating adventure. Guaranteed to challenge your food choice and you will not be disappointed. Try it.
Service was quick and friendly.
The food is excellent. we will be back with family and friends.
If I lived in spokane I'd go to Casper Fry every night. Great atmosphere, great service, and a creative menu that focuses on local farmers and seasonal ingredients. It's great to find a place where the cooks actually cook; no short cuts and everything made from scratch. I hope the staff realize they've made Casper Fry the best restaurant in Washington.
Food was nothing special. Overpriced. The grilled oysters were the size of a quarter. The burger was awkward to easy and the flavored in the meat were overpowering. Service was slow.
Loved the décor !! We found the menu a bit limiting, especially for a plain eater ;-)
Great find in Spokane. Cocktails were fantastic. Grilled oysters were so-so but the braised short ribs and Kentucky derby pie made up for them.
We were ahead of two large groups--10 or more per table which seemed to cause a problem for the wait staff. Although we had booked on Open Table the hostess had a problem with seating us. We ordered small plates but they did not all arrive at the same time and we had to keep reminding the server--they trickled out. Maybe it was because it was 6:30 on a Wednesday night? We would not go back on a busy night.
We were eight w/two kids for Saturday dinner. Indoors much too noisy to talk, so we moved outside. Servers very accommodating. Food absolutely delicious & imaginative. Salmon w/spaghetti squash perfectly cooked & delish! Caesar salad w/salmon, bacon dish starter & Jambalaya also excellent. Then we had the surprise pleasure of the South Perry Saturday outdoor movie being shown on the restaurant's wall right above our table, with hundreds of people in the parking lot next door. Such fun!!! This restaurant has heart and a personality all its own. No chain restaurant/franchise feel here. Will definitely recommend Casper Fry & look forward to returning again & again.
