We’ll be back!
Not impressed, won't be back! Don't order the Caesar unless you want to cut up your own salad. Also if you want quiet this is not the place for you. There demographic now is 30 and under.
Food service was slow. Server was friendly.
We watched our fish and chips sit under the heat lamp for over 10 minutes while they were wrapping up the rest of our parties food order.
Need more selections on the kids menu. Overall we expected more.
Great service quick delivery of our food good choices for beers love the happy hour. Lots of seating options for small or large groups
Food was good. Appreciated being able to taste wines. Being sat RIGHT by a wait station is awful, i didnt enjoy tjeir drama just like Im sure they didnt enjoy mine. No waters, tiny table was tough. But over all we enjoyed it and will be back seated elsewhere🙂
Great food! Nice new menu. Big portions.
Loved my first experience at the Steam Plant. Food was fantastic. Service as well. We were visited by two managers to make sure we were enjoying our experience. This was for Inland Restaurant week in Spokane.
We got seated quickly and the service was friendly, helpful and efficient. The food was tasty and appetizing. Great variety of drink choices. We found close street parking. They also have wonderful valet parking and a close parking lot.
I was seated so closely to two tables that were also on dates. I am on my own date and don’t want to hear other peoples interest in biking or Pokémon or their fascination with the gym. My waiter stood across the room talking to another person for 5 minutes when I could really use a refill on water. I heard great reviews on this place and for my first time visiting, it was saddening to have a bad experience.
The food was very good but took a long time to come out to the table. We also were seated right next to the dishwasher & hand washing station for employees.
My wife and I enjoyed a very nice evening at the Steam Plant. I had the best Salmon dish and she had the rotisserie chicken. Both dishes were excellent. Our waitress was very attentive.
First off we had a reservation for 6:15 but upon check in we were told that they overbooked reservations and it would be a 30-40 min wait(very poor planning). I understand the restaurant reopen a few weeks ago but has been long enough to run the origination better. The service needs work.
Once we got seated and ordered the food came out quick and was pretty good. We did have to ask (more than once)for a few service items.
We probably will return here to try the happy hour and really do hope the service is better.
really good meal for Restaurant Week. good choices
I TOOK MY EMPLOYEES HERE TO CELEBRATE A "JOB WELL DONE" FOR THE QUARTER. THEY ALL LOVED THE FOOD, ATMOSPHERE AND THE GREAT SERVICE THAT WAS PROVIDED. WE WILL CERTAINLY RECOMMEND IT TO OUR CUSTOMERS.
We came here for restaurant week, and were not disappointed! Service was amazing and food was outstanding! Will definitely be back!
Great food and great service.
Good food which has greatly improved since it has remodeled. Servings could be a little bit bigger and maybe a couple more dinner meal choices.
Food was good, service was friendly, neat old, restored building. Will go again!
Service was sub par. Our waitress was rude and short (not in height). The limited menu was ok for the special occasion (Valentines) but nothing caught my fancy. I ordered a Reuben thinking that reubens are pretty safe and hard to mess up. Boy was I wrong. The Reuben had cucumbers on it and the slaw was not tasty at all. I choked down half (I was starving) but couldn’t bring myself to finish it, it was bad. We ordered a dessert thinking that would redeem the horrible dinner but the banana cream pie did not make up for it. The bananas were not ripe and it wasn’t very flavorful. My wife ordered the fish n chips which she said were good. We were very excited to visit the remodeled steam plant as this was our FAVORITE restaurant before they closed for remodel. But after eating there on Wednesday, I’m not sure we will be back which saddens us.
The noise from the piped in music was jarring and too fast paced for good dining. It was like they wanted you to eat fast.
Parking is very inconvenient for a person using a cane or wheelchair. Food and service was mediocre at best.
Unique location in the old Spokane Steam plant made for a fun ambience. We were seated right next to the open kitchen, which was entertaining to watch the meals being prepared. Menu did not have a huge selection but what they had was great. Entree salads were small & overpriced. We had them as appetizers. Pizza was fantastic. Would go back again.
The service was outstanding! Well-staffed, attentive. The remodel runs deeper than the beautiful finishes --- the menu has been completely overhauled by a new chef and the food is much better. The food is fascinating; it strikes a wonderful balance between fine dining that would please a foody, but in homey/comfort flavors. Can't wait to go back and try more items on the menu.
Whatever you do, DON'T miss the corn bread! It is rather large for 2, but that didn't end up being a problem for us ... too good to not eat all of it!
Great place. However it will be closed 6/1/17 until September for remodel. A really cool unique setting. I highly recommend it.
This is the second time having dinner at Stacks at Steam Plant while in Spokane on business. The service has alway been great and the atmosphere is fantastic. I highly recommend this restaurant.
My family and I liked the booths for dining. We found it very easy to talk amongst ourselves and didn't feel like we had to shout to hear one another. It was very easy to talk and we couldn't hear the people in the booths next to us. We liked the privacy aspect of the seating accommodations. The food was excellent and even though our waiter had a large group that was somewhat needy he sent other staff over to check on us and make sure we had a pleasant dining experience. The spinach dip was excellent. Out of town guests that I have brought here had great things to say about the restaurant. I will definitely be back.
We were very pleased. We were glad that there was plenty to eat, the food looked very appetizing but was more than just pretty food. The bread appetizer is amazing. Everything was cooked to Perfection, nothing was overcooked. We will gladly go back again
I would recommend this to a friend with reservations. The Steam Plant is one of the most unique buildings in Spokane and to be able to wander around it, exploring the various parts and experiencing a piece of Spokane history is a pleasure. However, i think the food and drink have become overpriced for what the offerings are. Our appetizer and entree were both mediocre in quality and taste, but the prices would have led you to believe the food would have been well above average. Though not exorbitantly expensive, I believe it is priced well above where it deserves to be.
The atmosphere is fascinating and the beer is great. The food though? Left something to be desired for the price.
We went as a family of 5 for Mother's Day lunch. All had salad. Never have I seen a more uninspired fistful of iceberg lettuce with a smattering of mushrooms, a few cherry tomatoes whole in a pile on the side and a few slices of cucumber. $11.00. For such an amazing place to have a restaurant one would think they would put a little more love into their dishes.
I took my parents there for Mothers Day. They had never been there before, and were very impressed. The food was Great, as well as the service. The building is beautiful. It was very nice to tour, after our meal. It was quiet, and very friendly.
What a disappointment! After reading varied reviews of this restaurant, we decided to give it a try. I took my wife and mother-in-law there for dinner in lieu of Mother's Day Brunch. We all ordered the prime rib which was more than more than a little over-cooked and dry, but edible; I expected more from such a great venue! I chose not to say anything and ruin dinner, and we all ate without comment. After we left we all confided that it had honestly been one of the worst dinners we ever had. What a shame! There were other things on the menu that looked good too, but we will not return to check them out.
I will say, however, that the service was very good....too bad the food didn't measure up!
Excellent service by an entertaining waiter, engaged and atuned to our needs with being overbearing. Food was delicious. Had the prime rib special recommended by our server. And did I mention the Huckleberry Martini? Also delicious!
Very cool location. Waiter was very nice but food was underwhelming for price point. One meal had to be sent back as unsatisfactory and replacement meal took far too long. Not sure I'd return. However, beer drinkers in group were very impressed.
A great place! Excellent service from Pauline!! The atmosphere was superb.
Everything was great. Our server was very fun and a delight. The food was delicious and the environment was very warm and relaxing. Thank you for a great experience.
Waitress Alexandra. Been around the world, She was/is the best ever. Food, Hot/ Tasty. I will be back. TY. Was our Daughter Graduation from Zags. Again TY.
We really enjoyed our dinner at the steam plant. We come to Spokane occasionally from Canada. This time for bloomsday. We are putting the steam plant on our list of must go to places when we next visit. My wife is still talking about the food she had. Personally, I created the heat for a couple of steam plant as one of my jobs, so I had an historic interest in the building as well. Thankyou for an enjoyable evening.
This is by far the most interesting environment I have eaten in, in a very long time. This historic steam plant that heated downtown Spokane until the mid-80's, has been turned into a restaurant, but much of the old industrial machinery still remains. A quick walk around the building allows you to view the factory from interesting perspectives, and read information on historic plaques. The menu is small, but all the dishes we ordered were of very high quality and generous portions. The 11-beer sampler allowed us to try all of the attached brewpub's interesting selections, from I.P.A.s to a bizarre jalapeno beer.
Awesome setting, loved the steam engine dining space for larger groups. Maybe next time. Disappointed that resto wasn't a little busier, it was almost empty on Thu. night. The dishes, beers were superb. I had the steelhead, my colleagues, the steaks and meatloaf.
Made a short notice reservation for out of town guests and dinner for four. Took a chance after reading prior mixed reviews. We were rewarded with an all around excellent dining experience. Ambiance, service, food (4 different entree's), and beverages were all wonderful. Server, Jess, was a 20%'er - never hovering, but always on top of our beverages - plus made a last check before happy hour ended. She checked in just enough after our food was delivered, as well. One caveat: We were dining on a SUNDAY evening from 5:00 - 8:30 PM - it was not a busy evening; so I don't know how "flawless" things might be when they are more crowded.
