This place reminds you of a old time saloon. The staff is very laid back but courteous. I loved their onion rings and fish. Didn't realize until this trip that they have gluten free choices. Always love to pop into this establishment when in town.

We've eaten there several times. Food is fresh and well prepared. Prices are fair. Service has always been friendly and attentive. They have a good gluten free selection but the menu does not show all your choices.

Very nice "pub" atmosphere with lots of big-screen TVs for sports. Fish and Chips are highly recommended. The batter was crispy and did not dry out the Alaskan Cod.

Shortly after arriving in the US it is great to walk into a local eatery with a Harley Davidson as its main decoration. The noise from several TV screens (Football) was deafening at first, but gradually became bearable and part of the show. Do have onion rings at "The Onion". They make them from onions the size of a coconut,... More

There were many choices on the menu but the waitress we had was too pushy and not willing to offer much time we had to tell her to come back at least 3 times because she was too persistant. Same with ordering drinks - no time to peruse the menu. Then, towards end of meal she was no where to... More

I really like this restaurant for its charming decor and great location when I visit Spokane. On both occasions that we have dined the food, service and atmosphere has been very good. Extensive (although somewhat typical) menu so there is something for everyone. Many of the dishes had 2 portion sizes which I liked. Portions are generous so my husband... More

We went here with my 80 year old dad, 18 and 16 year old daughters and 11 year old niece and everyone was pleased with their food. It was quick and friendly service and the food was awesome. The portions were great and the price even better. A must eat if you are visiting SPOKANE.

Attended a group dinner with my wife's tennis team. They seated us in the back room. The waitress was extremely accommodating. The food was very good. I had the apple salad and the onion soup. Really enjoyed the meal.

Friendly place that is easy to find, as first time visitor they bring you small sweet onion rings, they are GREAT! We ordered some mustard for them because being from the South we do not normally put tarter sauce on our 'rings, but we tried their sauce and it was GREAT as well. The Alaskan Salmon was cooked perfectly with... More
