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.

They served us refrigerator temperature soup and we were told that "the soup accidentally got turned off". Also the corned beef sandwiches were cold along with the fries.

Definitely a cool place. Menu was a bit disappointing, more pub food than restaurant quality. Food was good but I expected more from this place. Must go at least once though to experience it.

Food always amazing. And the service was good. The selection was just enough next time we go back I have to get the fish and chips. And the Burgers look really good to.

Good for a special night out. The casual dress of the staff was fun, but seemed to contradict the food offerings and prices.

The calamari starter was rubbery (overcooked) and soggy, fortunately it came in a very modest portion. The kale salad recommended by our server was bitter as one would expect with an uncooked kale dish, but the salad flavors were not well-balanced to make it enjoyable to consume. Also recommended by our server was the chicken bacon mac. The bland flavors were edible, but not enjoyable. The sauce lacked a thick rich creaminess and was not tasty. Though a box of Kraft macaroni with the powdered cheese-like based sauce is no one's idea of a "great" meal, it would have been more palatable than the lackluster pasta floating in a thin pool of tasteless sauce. The baby back ribs were cooked well and very tender, but the flavor of boilermaker barbecue sauce covering the ribs prevented us from finishing the dish. The beer cheese soup was very good, and was the only redeeming dish of the meal.

Four of us went to dinner at the Steam Plant prior to attending the Mannheim Steamroller concert. We arrived just prior to our reservation time and were immediately seated. The hostess was very friendly and professional. Our waitress was professional, friendly and attentive. We informed her of our concert time and she assured us she would get us served and out in time! Each of us had a different meal and for the most part everyone was satisfied. I had the shrimp fettuccine, the smoked Gouda sauce was delicious, the shrimp were tough, difficult to get off the skewer. My partner had the kale salad with chicken....it was delicious, flavorful. She would order it again.

I have been wanting to come here for years and finally came in to celebrate my engagement. I loved the really cool steam plant interior. I enjoyed taking the self guided tour to learn more about the history of the building. I liked how there were some cheaper options on the menu as well as higher ticket items. Our server was very nice. We ordered the happy hour fried ravioli starter, the smoked Gouda pizza, and the chicken bacon mac. We really liked the ravioli and the chicken bacon mac. I felt like the pizza had too many toppings and too many flavors going on. There was way too much sauce. I also didn't like how I could clearly hear the conversation of the servers while they were at the server station, next to the booths. Other than that it was a great visit.

We made reservations for 7:15pm and were seated before our reservation time, before going up stairs we visited the bar area downstairs and walked around, such a neat place with amazing service! The Huckleberry mojitos are AMAZING! We will most definitely be going back when we are in town!

Thought this place would be fun for my boyfriend and I’s anniversary dinner. The steam plant atmosphere was definitely cool, but I didn’t realize it would be all decorated for halloween, so it kinda killed the ambiance which was unfortunate. Food was fine, nothing to write home about. Our table was right next to the waitress stand, so we got fast service but it wasn’t an ideal seat. I won’t go back to the restaurant again, but I would go to the bar.
