This place was not up to the rave reviews, but it was good. The Reuben didn't have a lot of zing, and the corn pasta was kind of beat. My gripe was the price, fairly spendy for plates that didn't fill us up. The kids burger looked good, and the service was friendly and speedy.

A fun place to eat and drink. Very much a a local place, tucked into the "Browns Division" are of SW Spokane. Good selection of beers on tap, decent wine list and a very varied menu. We had a BBQ Turkey Dip sandwich which came with home made potato chips, and a grilled lamb Sandwich which came with a side... More

We've been going to the Elk for several years now. It's always been one of our "go-to" places because the food and drinks and atmosphere have been great. Lately we have noticed that the place has a run-down feel to it. Worn tables and booths and a general less-than-clean feeling. The menu is tired also. Really need some new offerings.... More

This one came on the advice of a good friend who had seen it on Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives; and went with her husband to check it out! It sits on a quiet, but cool corner in the Brown's Addition district in Spokane. First time I saw it, I didn't stop because it was Mother's Day and it looked crowded.... More

While on travel we once in a while like to go to places that were shown on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, featured on the Food Network. This place was and it lived up to expectations. Great food, excellent service with great advice and located in a wonderful neighborhood. I will be back if in Spokane again.

Had a group of nine. Excellent service and great food. Great atmosphere as well. Really enjoyed the smash burger and the portion sizes were generous. Plus great beer selection.

The beer selection is normally good, but out of several beers due to Bloomsday. The food portions are big and the prices are reasonable. The service is super - definitely a revisit to see if the beer situation improves.

I lived in Spokane, for a year, and this became my favorite. They have the best Reuben and the corn pasta is excellent. We always make sure to stop for a bite anytime we drive through, which isn't often but always worth it!!!!

My husband and I originally saw this place on diners, drive ins, and dives. We went on a little get away to Spokane for a few days and decided to try it out. We had the Chicken Quesadilla with the smoked onion sauce and it was amazing!! The beer and bloody marys are great and the rest of our food... More
