Since we first opened in 1995, Steamworks has been a favourite of Vancouver locals and visitors alike. Whether you're joining us for lunch, a drink after work, or a group dinner with friends and colleagues, we're honoured to have you with us.


Steamworks gets its name from the famous Gastown steam line that runs through our premises. Our onsite brewery uses steam to fire its kettles. The instant heat of steam allows for greater brewing finesse, and most importantly great tasting beer. Whether you're in the mood for a thirst quenching Lions Gate® lager, or a full bodied HeriocaTM Oatmeal Stout, we've got a beer to please your palate.

Steamworks offers the standard pub food with great ambiance and beer menu. We had reservations and got a lovely view of the North Shore before dusk. The place was busy with cozy bar scene buzz. Of course my date tried a brew but recommend asking your server as the special brews will sell out. We enjoyed our house brew burger and salad. The apple caramel apple pie with ice cream blew us away- excellent value for $8! If you check out their washrooms, you’ll discover that the place is like an underground labyrinth - definitely will return if we’re back in Gastown area.

Have been wanting to go here for years and it was worth the wait. Managed to get a 5pm reservation for a Saturday night. Drinks were great, dinner was great, service was great, view was great - a really enjoyable experience.
Hubby had the GF pizza crust and said it was the best he's had yet.
Hope to get back again soon!

In town on a stopover and found this place close to my hotel. What a great surprise. The beer, food and service were all outstanding. I will be sure to come back when I am back I. Vancouver.

This was my third time eating here and my girlfriends first. I have always come here for the great food and atmosphere and it has not disappointed me yet! It’s a great location since there is parking everywhere. It Is next to waterfront station for those who transit.

So great to be able to make a reservation & our table had a view which was sweet.
I would’nt say food is the greatest, burgers were a bit bland, pizza on greasy side, dessert wasn’t great, but overall our table was happy.
Server was fun & did a great job!

Excellent selection of local craft biers. You can get a taster from 4 to 10 types of bier.
The sea food chowder was superb.
The main menu also had great selections but we had appetizers great variety!

We had burgers. THey were so dry you could hardly eat them. Would definitely not go back. Was so disappointed after reading the reviews. We were in Vancouver for 3 days and could have eaten somewhere that was so much better.

Felt for making a reservation in advance we had a pretty bad table. Was very noisy in the restaurant. Service was slow . It was just ok. Don't think I'd rush back too soon.

We always look for brew pubs when we are traveling. This one was not outstanding, but it wasn't disappointing either. Would probably go back if we had the chance.

Our night was amazing . You have the ability through the app to share what your celebrating. But no acknowledgement of that until we asked our server (waitress)about what options for one celebrating their birthday. The waitress was dis interested in us from the moment we sat down. All after she took our drink orders and app order. She was like food order now.. we were enjoying time with friends from toyko we wanted to take our time and chat which felt a little rush. But food and drinks were great.

Friendly fun service, great for beer and burgers. Take a pass on the lobster ravioli - a few bits of limp lobster floating in a sea of too much rich cream sauce, although the ravioli and bits of prosciutto were okay when relieved of some of the dressing.

I went for the ten-tap sampler ($21.99), but it turns out they have a policy of not selling this to one person. But my server was willing to work around this rule by bringing out one four-tap sampler ($8.49 each) at a time. (They didn't have the summer ale nor Commonwealth ale at the time.) I enjoyed trying out each of the quarter-pint glasses of different brews while reading the beer notes on the menu to understand what kind of malts and hops go into each one. I'm grateful that my server knew how to maximize my tasting experience despite some odd company rules. (I am not driving in Vancouver, so it seems like a weird rule.)
