Iím going to agree completely with BŁck Dich on this one. I was there with him, tried the same beers he did, ate the same food that he did and had a similar experience as him. I would have to say one of the coolest parts of the place is that you can actually go into one of the old smoke stacks. If you hold the door partially open it creates a vacuum and sucks air in very forcefully. I felt like a little kid again doing this. The bartender lady was cool as well.

Very cool location in the old steam plant, massive space that deserves a walk-through. Food was quite good, leaning toward "upscale pub fare". Service was average, even though it wasnít busy. Beers were also average, no standouts, but no horrors either. The biggest thing this place has going for it is the unique building and layout. If they upped the bar on their beers, then theyíd be a true destination.

Visited on a Tuesday evening as part of a large group work dinner, in the restaurant space. The building the brewpub is located in as very interesting, a wonderful preservation of the former steam plant. I was fascinated by the design, and the great job the restaurant did incorporated the design of the dining rooms. Considering the size of the group, the server did a nice job keeping everyone satisfied. The food and beer were both decent. Cool looking bar located a level below the restaurant. Neat design, wish the beers were as interesting.

70 = ★★Ĺ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Bartender with an attitude in a place that serves mediocre beer and barely passable food. There is better value anywhere else in Spokane. Obviously wouldnít recommend Steam Plant to anyone, particularly selective beer drinkers.

Environment: Absolutely one of my favorite environments to go to. They restored and repurposed just enough of the old steam plant to make this place an incredible restaurant. Beer: The beer on tap here is a decent variety and includes a local favorite...VBS ( vanilla bourban stout). The stout is a great 'gateway stout' to bring people over to the 'dark' side. It's not very thick, sweet, and malty. Food: Overpriced and terrible. After giving this place 3 different opportunities with entrees appetizers and desserts, I give up. I won't go here for any food again.

Nice unique setting in the basement of the old steam plant. Was fairly busy when we visited on a Tuesday evening. It does have a very corporate & confused feel to the place; is it a bar, fancy restaurant, brew-pub, tourist centre....or all 4? As noted earlier, this is a bit of a pricey place to eat & drink, but the food portions are large, so kinda make up for this. Had a few beers, one being the brown ale on cask. The server described it as a light Newcastle Brown Ale once Iíd ordered it; WTF??? Thankfully, it was nothing like Newkie Brown, as this cask ale had flavour & body. Anyway, worth visiting if your in Spokane, but not a place to go out of your way for. Pleasent enough!

The bar is in the basement of the restaurant. It was clean and nicely decorated. I was there on Wed night at 6, it was pretty empty.
They had 10 beers on tap and 1 cask. I didnít have time to try more than 1 beer, so Iíll be back next time Iím in town.

I thought this was a great place. The setting was fantastic. Overall though I think the message/theme is confusing. Is it a brew-pub or higher end eatery with great beer? It should decide and be one or the other. When I was there a family group wandered in, ordered soda-pops, walked around and then left. I assume they did not agree with the food prices or something else. There is the requisite Couer díAlene Brewery swag on display yet it isnít clear who is running the place. The brewery or Steam Plant Grill. I on the other hand was perfectly happy to quaff quality brews and enjoy some good pub food. Great Bison burger! If I need to stop in Spokane I will definitely put this place at the top of my list.

Jan 2008 - The place is really cool with all the steam plant stuff. We went around noon on a Saturday and the place was absolutely dead. Not sure how busy it gets in the evenings, but I can see the bar filling up fast. The food was ok, and $5 for a bowl of soup, Iíll just stick to the beer. Service could have been better since it was pretty quiet, but not terrible. Iíll go back for sure.

Located in an old steam plant, the CDA brewing company has done a great job on this location. It is a real testament to what can be done with an old building. The good here is very good, and a more upscale than some of the other brew pub fare you might find. The service has been excellent and I think that the beers are very good.
