Stopped by while visiting Spokane because we like to hit the Food Networks Diners, Drive-in and Dive locations when we get a chance. Typical bar environment and menu for the most part - but good quality. Guy had the quesadilla, Reuben and corn pasta so we did too. Nice, but nothing to write home about. I enjoyed it, but I... More

My husband and I met another couple there about 5 nights ago. What fun! The joint was busy! I had the bean burger and it was extremely tasty. My husband got the Reuben, and he said it was more than he could handle! For dessert, the 4 of us shared a specialty of the house. It was a huge brownie... More

I heard about this place from Diner's DriveIns & Dives. So since we were in Spokane thought we would give it a try. Loved the atmosphere. Really loved the food (dreamed about the sausage stuffed ravioli with lobster sauce all night). Hubby had the pulled pork tacos (also awesome) Only downfall was the snooty server Don't know if she was... More

We visit several times of the year all year long, but especially like to come here during the summer. Park the car near by and then go for a bike ride. Come back and drop the bike gear at the vehicle and then walk over here for beer and food. Some interesting choices on the menu and the specials are... More

I went to this place to eat with 2 business associates. We just got into town and none of us had ever been to Spokane. We wanted try somewhere somewhat close to the hotel we were staying at but not next door, if that makes sense. We drove to the restaraunt, which was a beautiful drive. The neighborhood that this...

Love Browne's addition, and this is the star of the area, with nice outdoor seating, and a fun bar. Had a kale pesto the last time we were there, and it was delicious! Great beers, OK wine list, fun place. (Wait staff seems bored - seems like they could use some motivation and training, but all in all, worth the... More

Sometimes, when is travel, I like to try something a little different. A local suggested the Elk Public House. At first I thought it was just another "gastro pub" but soon found put that I was totally mistaken. Of course, there was an extensive selection of bar choices, including many local brewery selections, all offered up by a VERY knowledgable... More

Might be some of the worst service ever- eaten here at least 30 times and the waitstaff always acts like they could care less or be some place better. Although their food and drinks couldn't be better- especially the corn pasta and lamb sandwich. One of the few places in Spokane with nice outdoor seating.

Elk Public House is a very good restaurant in a quaint and beautiful neighborhood. On a recent visit to Spokane we had the pleasure of eating here and found it to be one of the best restaurants around. My wife had the BBQ Chicken Quisadillas and a small salad which she said was very good. I had the Rueben Sandwich... More
