Nothing special restaurant food in a very cool location. Pricey. Would skip unless part of an event.

I never visited before the big remodel, so I can’t compare the vibe, but what they’ve done is pretty cool and I appreciate the work and history. I think they could’ve gone further and created some more interesting nooks and hang-outs, ala the McMenamin’s style,...More

Wonderful service, hostess even pointed out interesting areas of the building I would have otherwise missed, excellent roasted mushroom pizza (roasted mushrooms, garlic, balsalmic vinegar, very tasty), pulled pork sliders better than average, herbed slaw, very different & tasty.

This place is on my top 10 list in Spokane. The sense of history has been turned into fun and engaging atmosphere. The servers can talk about history of this place as well as what's on the menu, and show passion for both. The food...More

Really walkable to most downtown hotels they serve up some very tasty entrees. A kitchen staff that turns out items like fresh berry salad with mixed fresh berries, spinach, candied walnuts and goat cheese. One is more than enough to split for a starter. Lunch...More

A former industrial site, dining on the main floor and a pub on the lower floor. Large space with plenty of seating. Great prickly pear margarita, good IPA, great rib eyes! Service was businesslike but efficient. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, overcoming a pretty jarring sound...More

Welcome to the historic Steam Plant, site of an award-winning preservation effort and a landmark Spokane destination. The Steam Plant was built in 1916 and provided radiant steam heat to over 300 buildings in downtown Spokane until it closed in 1986. Avista and Wells and Company renovated the building and re-opened it in 1999, preserving much of the original working plant. While you're here, be sure to take a moment for a self-guided tour. Narrative displays are located throughout this one-of-a-kind building. We hope you enjoy our 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.
