Great food!

Ohh the onion rings are so good! Make sure to get a reservation as this place is busy. Food is fabulous and if you like beer you will be in heaven.

Went there for lunch last week with a client and had a very good meal. The atmosphere was very nostalgic and we were able to talk w/o shouting. The French dip was good and large and includes endless fries for like $10. Also try the fried mozzarella very good.

My wife and I stopped in for dinner. Nice place, about a 10 minute wait for a table. We were escorted to a table - one of many empty tables at the time. The server asked for our drink / appy order. My wife had their special of the day - Margarita. I ordered a "fresh coffee with cream and... More

Best home made cheese sticks and marinara sauce we've had in years. Tex-Mex Egg Rolls were so good at lunch, sent hubby back later that night to get an order of each to bring home. Sauteed Shrimp and Battered Shrimp were delicious with no iodine aftertaste. We'll be back whenever we are in the area. This review is for the... More

Recently visited this one-of-a-kind restaurant/pub in Spokane after attending HOOPFEST. It was 100degrees outside, but The ONION was a welcome relief from the sun. Packed with players and supporters, the service was great, the food delicious, and everyone having a grand time... Another "place to visit in Spokane!"

This is a great place for a quick sandwich type meal and drink (beer and Wine). They have a bar and a restaurant for family's or just a quieter place to eat. The Monte Cristo sandwich is the type you'd get at a fair, battered/deep fried with raspberry dip. Very fattening but delicious. The Turkey club sandwich and pulled pork... More

Very friendly and they got us right in. The menu is huge. Famous for their French onion soup. We had philly cheese steak and Chicken burger, portions are very big. It's not fine dining and it's super fattening, but it was good and the service was superb.

Just my kind of place...like a Sports bar but not overdone...friendly staff that offered suggestions (like deep fried OREO'S)...nice bar and comfortable atmosphere...they served a good peppery sauce with many dishes and it was very tasty but not too hot. Will go back again!

I had hoped for a better tasting Monte Cristo sandwich, as this one was really greasy. My Friend had a hamburger and he advised his food was good. The restaurant was clean and the service good, but the prices were a bit high for what you get. If I return, I will try the hamburger next time.
