Outdated menu, poor quality for the price. Far newer and better options in Spokane.

As always the food and drinks were delicious and the service was friendly. The only negative is that like most businesses today they were short staffed so it took an eternity, or actually over 45 minutes from the time we ordered just to get our 2 appetizers. It took another 30 minutes after that to get our 2 entrees. Fortunately we weren’t in a rush and patio was pleasant so it was still a good experience.

Great service and amazing food! Only downside was availability, they kept running out of items on the menu. Even though food is spectacular it was frustrating trying to find what we could actually order and not being able to order our first choice.

The food was mediocre at best…service was fine. Our waitress did go above and beyond so totally not her fault, but things were slow, they were out of steak at 7 pm, and by 8 out of lobster. We would not go back nor recommend the restaurant but the single waitress we had tried her hardest and was very good.

This was the first time I had been here in years and thought it would be a good choice for my son who was looking forward to his first steak meal. It was good, but not the quality I remember. The bacon on his filet mignon was burned and the steak did not have the flavor I remember from past years. I ordered the prime rib which always came standard with horseradish and it did not have it this time. We did enjoy the mashed potatoes and my son loved the seared teriyaki steak appetizer as well as the chocolate indulgence cake. The lighting in the restaurant was pretty dark so I had a tough time reading the receipt and when I got home and was able to see it, I realized I was charged for a drink that we didn’t order. Needless to say, this did not help improve what had been a disappointing meal that I had high hopes for. We rarely get out for a nice meal and this was a splurge for us and left us disappointed!

Charming restaurant in a fantastic setting…the river and being in an old flour mill. Food was excellent. Server offered good suggestions including a wonderful wine! Would definitely recommend and return.

The food and service was amazing like always but the table they put us at was right next to the door going outside so lots of traffic and the ac wasn’t working so it was warmer then it should have been.

Waitress helped me with gluten free questions. The river was a very relaxing sound as we ate. I had some very quality driven people eating with me and they only had compliments. That's a first! Beautiful and memorable experience.

Clinkerdagger had one of the most spectauclar settings we have seen anywhere with great views of the rapids/falls from most tables.  And I must say the onion soup was quite spectacular, especially if you like lots of cheese (and I do!).  However, the rest of the meal went downhill - we had high expectations from reviews we had read and it failed to live up.  The shrimp/scallop pasta was fine/even good, but the sauce was a bit thin/watery and I was expecting spectacular.  The 'fresh' halibut was a bit dry and fishy tasting and quite a disappointment.  But I must say the grilled asparagus was great.  Sorry, but we made our first and last visit.

My husband and I recently visited Clinkerdagger's (for everyone but me was their first time). First, we were seated in a fantastic table with an amazing view of the falls. Second, our server was awesome, so friendly and knowledgeable and helpful with all of our questions. The food was dynamite, sooooo good. We all shared an appetizer and ate dinner. The noise level was perfect, not too quiet and not too loud. After dinner we wandered around a bit to check out the rest of the restaurant and bar (it was closing time). The place is beautiful and full of charm. We happened to run into the owner who explained some of the photographs hanging on the walls and told us about some of their community projects. It was a really great experience and we can't wait to go back next time we're in town!
