    We sat outside in view of the roaring Spokane River. Fantastic. Beautiful weather. Service was very good, attending to our needs and desires. Food portions were generous. Halibut and salmon were moist and tasty. Vegetables (string beans, Brussel sprouts, potatoes) were roasted, but under cooked. Dessert was complimentary due to our annual celebration. Can you say chocolate?

    Food and table service is always good. If booking a reservation on a holiday (Father's Day) expect the Host/Hostess staff to be overwhelmed and a wait of 30 min after your reservation time. Made a reservation 3 weeks ahead of time for 6:15 not seated until 6:45, and several other reservations were in the same situation.

    Requested special seating outside by falls. Celebration of graduation. No mention or little decor like normally done. On top of that when lead to seats .. not places where asked but by the back corner with the only view f you want to call it that was of brick building. No water no outside as requested. Reservations were made a month ago. Very disappointed in clinks as this is something we have always done and NEVER had issues For the amount of money we spent, should be treated that way.

    It is within our budget to dine here two or three times a year. Always a pleasant experience. More so than usual as they have managed to keep price increases very reasonable. We may return more often.

    Our reservation for 4 was at 6pm. We were seated at 6:10. So far, so good. But then came the actual service... or, rather, lack of it. Didn't get our waters until 6:20, when we also placed our order, which included not only dinner but drinks, an appetizer, and their normally good pea salad. We didn't get drinks for another 15 minutes (along with the bread) and our appetizer another 15 minutes after that! Our dinner didn't come until 7:30, and the dessert, which was on the house (good on them) didn't arrive until 8:15! We left the restaurant at 8:30, almost 2.5 hours after we arrived. Ridiculous. As for the food, it was very "meh." The Bree with Macadamia Nut appetizer was borderline hilarious. One corner of the rather large plate was empty -- like Sahara Desert empty. Nothing on it. And the apples and honey? Enough to maybe feed a small mouse. Truly. When you have super salty cheese (in fact, whoever was in charge in the kitchen that night clearly has a thing for salt) and salty bread, it's nice to have some honey to cut the salt. What honey?!? One of the lamest charcuterie boards I've ever ordered. The pea salad was super salty. I've been ordering that plate for decades and it's never tasted saltier. The dinners were okay, but nothing terribly special. And for heaven's sake, Clinks, get some veggie options. This isn't the 80s anymore. The veggie options are basically non-existent. I've been a fan of Clinks since 1975, and my family has been celebrating birthdays here on and off since then (with a 30-ye. I used to be a big fan, but the place has clearly plummeted on many counts, and we actually talked about celebrating the next birthday somewhere else. Honestly, this makes me sad. I want to love the place. But at $188 for a dinner of four, you'd expect both better food and much, much better service. I'm willing to give this place another chance, but after that, my family will revolt and it'll be time, sadly, to move on. The view of the river, however, is killer!

    It was a wonderful experience. We were cordially greeted. Sat with a view, like I requested. Received excellent service. Our waitress had such a positive attitude. My drink was exactly like I requested. Then had the caeser salad with grilled chicken and the chicken sandwich. It was perfect and delicious. I love this place. View of the beautiful falls too! thank you!

    We went to Clinkerdaggers last year for our anniversary and it was great, excellent service and great food. Went back this year and was sadly disappointed. Fish was almost raw and had to send my steak back. Ordered med well and got med rare. Service was mediocre. Very expensive for what we got. Will find a new place for next year’s anniversary

    The service was subpar at best. The only good thing about this restaurant was the view outside. Our waitress took 1 hour to get our food order, kept running past us. Then our food was cold once it came to us. Was really expecting more from this place.
