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.

We got seated in the downstairs portion near the window it was nice and quiet - nobody around us quite yet. We ordered our appy, and food at the same time. Our waiters were nice! The hummus appy was delicious. However, after we ate our appy, it took over an hour for our food to come. Our waiter I could tell was a little embarrassed totally not his fault!!! He brought us some beer tasters to make up for it. Sadly my burger and the garlic fries were not good :(. My burger is lukewarm and they had to remake my garlic fries probably from how long my food had been sitting there. And the new garlic fries were super greasy and limp. I don’t know if I can ever make the trip back. And they took the lobster ravioli (the best dish they had) off the menu there. It was a disappointing visit. Maybe a one off? Our waiter was super nice though - nothing but praise for him. I was really excited for this date night - we made the best of it but it was disappointing to say the least.
Great location. Get out of the station and you are right there. The patio is comfortable and not too loud. Good selection of drinks. Food is good, and comes out pretty quickly.
A beautiful night in Vancouver with the patio closed to full. My wife and I (well dressed Boomers) had reservations but unfortunately when we arrived the Hostess told us the Patio was completely full, so she sat us alone in the restaurant with the other Boomer couple in the restaurant. I asked her to let us know when a table would be ready and gave me a half hearted “sure”. Our food and service were great but dining alone while all other diners enjoyed the patio on a beautiful Van evening was depressing. Won’t be going back…
Wonderful experience. Was my birthday, so expected a complimenrary dessert which did not happen.
Efficient, clean and friendly. Food was prepared quickly and tasted fresh. Can’t wait to visit again!
Great location, service was really good. Recommend the wings and nacho with bacon!
Went to watch a game , was expecting semi decent pub grub but was pleasantly surprised with the food and variety, food was perfectly cooked and very tasty! Good brunch menu as well, after our first couple drinks the service slowed down but it was busy for the game so I was expecting it . Over all would go back any time !
My wife and I came here for our anniversary and we’re so pleasantly surprised by how much fun we had. Our waiter was fantastic, the food was excellent and our overall experience was great. As it was our anniversary we had actually booked a hoitey-toitey restaurant and changed our reservations last minute, because we said “that’s not us” and I had booked Steamworks as a backup. We could not have had a better experience. We will be back!
Good food, good air conditioning, great service and location. When our family was seated at a somewhat uncomfortable table, the manager saw and moved us right away, which we appreciated.
Great interior and must try beer flight
Great Service. Would appreciate if the noises were a bit controlled.
Jumbo size of pretzel was the best. Over all the ambience was like German restaurant and we enjoyed. Will be there again next time
Great patio with heaters
Great to get back to Steamworks again. Got a great table with a harbour view, helped by hostess. Thanks, also, to server Gillian and manager Arishta. Sunny days again, on the patio, in Gastown!
Justin was great but I always find that it’s hard to get service and the servers are not that friendly.
Great place for beer and food. Expect more from the beer than the food. The 10 beer flight was really fun! Great and friendly service!
Good food, generous portions and good atmosphere
Good service. Fast and efficient. Portions were generous. Pretzel was delicious. Mustard dip tasted very real and not overly sweet. Fish and chips was a large portion. Lots of fries and big pieces of fish. Only wish I knew what kind of fish it was. A good experience
Though the last night of DineOut Vancouver, we chose instead to order of the menu. The food was very good, with my Jambalaya as good as I had in Vancouver. The service was very good, and the prices were reasonable. It was a chilly, windy night and it took time to warm up, once we got inside, but I'm sure Covid protocols had the air conditioning working overtime. Otherwise it was a very good date night.
Chili was really good. Fast service and everything was wonderful. Only thing I didn’t like was going down several staircases to get to our table
Had a great meal. My first time and not the last time there!
Massive selection of beers. Awesome IPA's and Pale Ales. Dinner was great and portions were large.
Great food and service. Waiter was very good. The downfall was the ambience. I like Steamworks and have been many times, but never have I been placed in the side room that felt like a warehouse with high school table and chairs.
Local brewery with decent variety of beer. Food was good, but don't expect any gourmet options - mostly traditional pub good.
Have visited this brew pub on several occasions when in Vancouver never been disappointed with the food quality. And there great selection of home brewed beers
Came here for the Dine Out menu 2021 - food and the prices were amazing!
Our server was really kind & patient. He never rushed us, checked on us an appropriate amount of times, and made us both smile & feel relaxed!
The food and drinks were outstanding! Was so honoured to spend our anniversary there ❤️
I've been here once before and had a better experience, but not amazing. The general atmosphere is good in terms of the customers that go there and that's the reason I decided to go back for a second time.
But the female servers are so rude and the food is not good :(
(Definitely stay away from any seafood option - not sure why we would order seafood from a brewery but also don't put it on the menu if it's from a can??)
On both occasions, my friend and I had a really rude server that had no time for us (and it wasn't because they were extremely busy). They were very cold from the beginning and it made the experience quite uncomfortable.
The beer was good... but it doesn't make up for the bad experience overall.
We’ve been several times in the past few weeks and we have not had a bad meal or anything like that ever!
When they first started brewing beer way back in the day I was not super impressed, but I think the variety of beers that they have on tap at any given time are excellent
Same server as last time excellent
The pretzel is the best! Better than usual pub food.
We went to Steamworks for Brunch on a rainy Saturday. The food and the service were excellent! With all the COVID restrictions, the restaurant was very quiet so I encourage people to get out and enjoy an enjoyable (covid friendly) experience at Steamworks in Gastown.
The service was amazing, the food was okay the $$ was good but the quality was not great. I did. Or care for the peppercorn steak. I asked for it medium rare I got rare. I did not complain because it was NYE but I think they fail on the quality and proper cooking.
Staff were attentive, food was good, nice atmosphere
Glad to see people getting together responsibly during the difficult times.
Covid friendly. Server was friendly & attentive. We went at 5:00pm so it wasn’t busy or loud. Nicely located near Canada Place. We’ll definitely return.
A dinner with my son. Appreciate how much harder it is for the servers during this time. Good job.
Love the atmosphere and the 10 sample flights are great!
I like the Tuna Poke Bowl a lot. Moderate cocktails selections. Good place to dine in and hangout with friends.
The Dine Outside Vancouver menu was a great value and the food was excellent. The service was outstanding, very helpful and pleasant staff from start to finish. I would highly recommend.
