There are a few nice niche boutiques on the one side, and a restaurant on the other. It's a great renovation of the old steam plant. One of the better things about downtown Spokane.

We stopped by on a Sunday for a look around, and though the shops were closed, we had a beer at the restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed looking around the restored steam plant. The architects did a fabulous job of retaining the features of the original steam plant. One of the boilers is now a private dining room (yes, it's big),... More

Found this place on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. Had muscles as an appetizer and they were great. Also had the Blood Orange Beer and it hit the spot. If you're in town looking for a place to go this is it.

The staff is always kind and knowledgeable. The atmosphere is so eclectic. Being in and old historical building and see all of the amazing things and reading about the history. Their fish and chips are always great and their own beers are always the way to go.

This is one of our favorite places to eat. A friendly atmosphere that never feels crowded even when it is full. Excellent food. I like to try different dishes each time and have never been disappointed. Friendly, fast service.

Really interesting old power plant, turn of the last century. Not much open until about 4 pm so they need more bars and restaurants for mid day. But good for the viewing.

Fabulous steam punk building. Staff a bit over friendly. Prawns in app were a bit over cooked but very well spiced. Mushroom shitake sirloin was fabulous. Perfectly cooked. Side veggies as well. Same for cashew chicken. Double stacked stout worth a try. Stick with the beer rather than wine list. Chocolate dessert very good.

I had heard this place was great. I had the trout that was stuffed and my guy had lasagna/pasta. We had two huckleberry martinis that were fabulous. The service was slow. The restaurant was not that busy and the menu was moderately limited. My fish was a bit rubbery and there were too many capers.

This is truly a historic place to see here in Spokane - it gives a full history of the building and a great place to eat!

The restaurant is great and it is really cool to walk around however the restaurant food is marginal. Waitress was marginal. Beer was good. Would recommend if you are interested in history not if you want a good meal.

Thank Karen R
