Steam Plant Kitchen & Brewery 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 showcases its 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.

Everything was good except for the chicken wings; they’re we’re not hot (temperature) when it was served to us.

Very overpriced for what we got. There was no bread or rolls with the salad. Our entree and salad were brought at the same time. The croutons in the Caesar salad were stale cornbread. We had eaten there once before but probably will not go back.

The setting, the former city center steam heat plant, makes a nice casual spot for dining. High school Prom season and the accompanying groups of tuxed and suited dudes and gowned and high heeled gals lent continueing entertainment. Smoked steelhead buccatini and Caesar salad with chicken delicious and well presented and service quick & professional, but friendly. Great place for a quick meal prior to a concert at the Fox.

My staff and I traveled to Spokane for a state conference and my assistant found Steam Plant Kitchen from a google search. We had a wonderful dinner, excellent wait service, and enjoyed the ambiance that allowed for us to discuss work. I had the Emerald Kale Salad (w/add'l shred chicken), and we also ordered The Codfather, Bone-in Pork Chop, and a Smoked Gouda pizza (I think this was a special request that was happily accommodated). Everyone said their respective orders were great. Don't overlook the Fire Roasted Cornbread. It was delicious and although there are Anaheim chiles in it, it's not at all spicy. The apple-hazelnut crisp was a bit too sweet and underwhelming. All told though, we would definitely visit again!

Excellent, friendly service. Even tho was an extremely popular
and busy eatery,were very prompt, cheerful with delivery of all beverages and foods.
Conversations were easy as background noise was easy absorbed into the "Wowsie" historical setting of this building.
Fun menu to choose from with generous portions and packed with presentation.

We were visiting our daughter in college and decided to try this place out. Pleasantly surprised on how fantastic everything was!
Located inside the nearest building, the food & selection was wonderful.
We booked our daughter’s graduation dinner here and so glad we did.

We hadn't eaten here in almost 10 years and it was nice. The atmosphere was more casual, like a spot for a light meal or just meet for drinks rather than an upscale restaurant. Our server was very nice and attentive. Would definitely go back for the right occasion.

Excellent service! Pizza crust is very tasty but a little doughy, but the toppings were outstanding (chicken, sun dried tomatoes, artichokes).
My wife's fish was very good but the French fries were "batter dipped" prior to frying, which we don't understand at all. Fries should be fried just as they come without any adulterations.
Our friends salads and chili were excellent. The apple crisp for dessert was great, though they put the ice cream on mine despite my asking for it to be left off. I scooped it off and they generously left it off my bill. Overall, a good dinner.
I especially liked how far apart the tables are. In many restaurants the tables are far too close, but here they are well spaced allowing some privacy.
The noise level got pretty loud probably owing to the fact that the walls are located brick creating a lot of reflected sound and reverberation.

What a great surprise for a family meal. First time visitor and your restaurant exceeded our expectations. The food was top notch, I tried the Worlds Greatest Turkey Sandwich on a whim and yes you're right! It was awesome. Can't wait to visit Spokane again and visit your restaurant once again. Thanks

Food was very good if not slightly over priced. The service was nonexistent, we sat for maybe 15 minutes before some came to take our order. That would have been forgivable if not for the hour and a half following our food arrival that we were ignored. No water refills or offers of any other beverages. We had to chase a waiter down to pay and even then it took him 10 minutes to come over with the bill. Service is everything in my opinion, and the Steam Plant is very weak in this area.

Great food in a cool venue. Despite the fact that our waiter kept telling us “no rush” throughout our meal, we definitely felt rushed. At one point, he grabbed our check thinking we had put our card in it but we had not as we were still eating our dessert. We were in and out within an hour withdrinks, dinner and dessert. We had no desire to be rushed.

The food was tasty and they had a wide selection from soups, salads and appetisers to full meals. I'd say it was mainly Continental dining selections. Nothing weird.
The atmosphere was interesting and historic. Watch for the resident ghost.

I will not return to the restaurant nor recommend the restaurant to anyone, the food was terrible and the service was unfriendly and very slow. Ordered a casear salad, it had only balsamic vinegar no casear dressing, stale croutons and no bacon, dinner was to be blackened chicken, not even close. Was a cheap piece of chicken in a tomato sauce. Certainly not fine dining.

Food & service were outstanding ... Table location & noise level were disappointing for a dinner date with my wife ... Having never been there before - would go back, but only for better/quieter table location ... Would be among favorites if noise and table were not so bad

Poor Gluten free choices and they can't guarantee that any of them are completely gluten-free because they make everything right next to the pizza dough oven.
