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.

Awesome food and great cocktails! Totally recommended.

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.)

Food was good, not outstanding. Beer was excellent and IPA was nice and hoppy. Service was prompt and friendly. Great brick walls, curving staircase, and historic feel.

Uriges Pub mit lebhafter Atmosphäre und sehr guter und großer Auswahl an Bieren, teilweise selbstgebraut. Wir empfehlen das selbstgebraute Kölsch und BBQ Chicken Burger.
Eine Reservierung in diesem vielbesuchten Pub ist empfehlenswert.

Table too small for 4 people who were having dinner. Would be nice if we had the option to reserve the patio as well.

The fish & CHips were cod at halibut prices. A reasonable portion of fish, but small portion of chips. A small amount of bland coleslaw. Service was reasonably fast to cater to quick turnover. The food was just over fast food in quality/presentation but overpriced. Other brewpubs sell beer at very good prices, but not here. Premium price for their own beer. Tourist trap prices but have a lot of locals. Second visit, the burger was not excitable either.

Canibal Cafe has closed so the quest for good food/beer near the water will lead me to try Mahoney and Tap & Cask as they are within a five minute walk.

The food was pretty decent and the service started out great but after we had our food the server seemed to disappear. Great location next to the train station ideal for commuters out to the suburbs. The bench seat at the window was extremely uncomfortable and too high for the table. I ended up with a kink in my neck trying to sit properly. They should pull out the benches and simply use chairs.

Restaurant was very busy, tables were intimately close together, restaurant was loud and fun. Beer was delicious and food was filing, typical pub food

Great neighborhood find, seated right away, very good service, fun place but not so loud you can't talk. Enjoyed our dinner, good hamburger and the roasted chicken was also quite tasty.

Great Pub food!! Try the pretzel with smoked cheese. Good wine and beer list, service was good considering how many large parties there were in one area. Pretty waterfront setting

Fish tacos were the worst I have ever had. Yuk. Big guy next to me looked like he didn't enjoy them either bc he only ate one.
