Celebrated an early Valentines Day dinner with four friends. We intentionally avoided the holiday crowd by having dinner a couple days before the event. A server or manager? Noticed our odd number (5) kind of crammed in at a table and asked us if we would like to move to a larger area and better view. Of course we did, thanks for noticing. The variety of food and beverage for all five of us was excellent. We also enjoyed the waitress, who had a bundle of personality. Clinks is on the pricey side for sure, but again, everything was very good. Noticed on the bill they have a “surcharge” for employee wages. That did not go over well with most of those at our table, as they felt he prices were already high and they are now nickel and dining customers. Hmmm. I’m sure everyone else at the table would drop to 4 stars over this alone, but I did not.

Ate here for the first time when in Spokane. The outdoor seating has an amazing view of the city and river. Our order took a little too long to arrive but the waiter made it right by bringing a free bowl of chowder and owning the issue. The food was good and I would go again. Their steaks and prime rib are on the spendy side. Giving it 4 stars now but hope to give it 5 on the next visit.

Rarely do I consider a restaurant "excellent" but Hubby and I both loved this place. The atmosphere was warm and reminded me of the Winchester Mystery House with all the narrow walks, heavy carved dark wood and elegant furnishings. Our view was the falls, our server was the most entertaining we've ever had and was there when needed but never intrusive. Hubby and I had the Louie Salads and pea salad, both thoroughly enjoyed. Others at the table enjoyed their choices and the flavored teas were a big hit. If you park in the lot, parking is validated. We will be back.

Has been awhile since we have been here. Server was great, checking in with us frequently and serving about 5-6 other tables as well. Food was good and tasted great. My rib plate had plenty of food on it. Wife's filet mignon plate had an 6 oz. thin piece of meat, small scoop of mashed potatoes and 6 very thin pieces of asparagus. My plate had more food on it then her's did and was cheaper. Bill was quite a bit more than expected for the amount of food we got. Took a bit to get window seat for my wife to see the river. Was told they are limited and mostly taken. Need to be requested in advance. Wife informed manager it was requested when reservations were made 1 week ago due to being her birthday. Took them about 5 minutes to get us a window seat after that with no further acknowledgement of this being her birthday. Will probably be another long while before we come again. I know the issues Covid is causing restaurants is making it hard on them, but increasing prices and decreasing food amounts and sizes is not going to help them either.

We went here for my birthday tonight. I ordered Ribeye steak ($56), medium well. It was a frozen, very dried out steak that was very overcooked. It was less than a half inch thick and so tough I could hardly cut it. Another member of our party ordered the New York steak, medium. It too was flat, had been frozen and was very well done rather than medium. The prime rib was very good. The service was terrible. We had a 4:00 reservation so not too many people there. It took 20 minutes before our order was taken. Then an hour to get our food. The waiter never checked on our food. We had to track him down to get more water and wine. After we were finished (most of the food still remained on our plates), we couldn't find any servers at all and waited another 40 minutes just to get our bill. Again we had to ask. It was a birthday celebration and the host greeted us with a happy birthday but our waiter said nothing. No dessert or dessert menus were offered. Our meals for 4 people and 2 glasses of wine was $250 not including tip. There are so many other places in Spokane to go for $250 and much better food and service. So disappointed.

This is the most overrated restaurant in Spokane. The food is good, but not great. It pleases you with big portions instead of flavors, imagination, combination of ingredients, presentation. The server was not rude by any means but just like the food, a bit dry. None of this is expected at this price point. You don’t go to this place for the food, you go for the great location.

I really wanted to like this place but... My ribs were extremely fatty, and it seemed like they could do with more cooking time as they did not fall off the bone. It was quite difficult to cut them. My mashed potatoes were COLD and waaay too salty. The salmon/fish of the day was also lukewarm and the potatoes cold and too salty. The fried calamari however were excellent. I would come here just to eat them! The staff on the other hand over exceeded my expectations, they were wonderful. All in all I’m torn because I REALLY wanted to like this restaurant, but it just fell flat.

I searched online for best prime rib in Spokane and Clinkerdagger came near the top so we opted to have our anniversary dinner there. The hostess and waitstaff were friendly, the table was nice with a view of the river. The seating is a little close and noisy but not a big issue. We ordered the 12 oz prime with yukon potatoes and creamed kale cooked medium. We asked about substituting salad for the kale and were told that would a charge. We got and were charged for 16 oz prime with creamed kale and carrots. The prime was cooked correctly but was served luke warm. The creamed kale had a nice flavor but was also luke warm. The carrots were horrible, no flavor, cooked just enough to not be a nice fresh veggie and not enough to be a cooked veggie. When we pointed out the potato had been substituted with the carrots they brought potatoes which we appreciated, but they were also not hot. Definitely memorable in all the wrong ways and with tip it was over $100 with no drinks. Milk ordered with the meal was brought halfway through the meal.

Before the pandemic Clinkerdagger was a great restaurant. The view was very pleasant (not so much when the river is very low) and all the wait persons were competent and professional. The customer service was excellent. The food was very good. At my recent visits the customer service varied from just O.K. to poor. The wait persons seemed out of step and unable to handle a half crowd. My spouse and I noticed the air conditioner on a hot day was not as good as our portable air conditioner at home.The furnishings are getting shabby. Our first martini arrived half full although the second was full. My salad was served with huge chunks of vegetables and fish. I had a hard time eating it although it was commonly good. We realize it takes time to come back from the pandemic so we want tourists to know that this restaurant needs time to recover.

Everything was perfect. The bartender & drinks were awesome while we waited to be seated. The indoor atmosphere is one of a kind. It was a birthday night & the one & only time we would be in Spokane, so we wanted a table with a view on the roof deck. We didn't get it, so we asked the floor manager for a better table with a view, he obliged. The view was awesome. Our server was quick, responsive, & very nice. For a starter the French Onion Soup, the best I've ever had. They brought bread with a yummy garlic butter melted over it (even better when dipped in the soup). More great cocktails which came quickly. Then for our entrees, she orders Sea Scallops & I got the Prime Rib. (we always surf & turf to share). The Sea Scallops were amazing with a crusted layer that we have never experienced. The sides (veggie medley, mashed potatoes, asparagus) were all delicious. But sadly the Prime Rib was the only nail in the tire. It had plenty of flavor & the au jus was full of flavor. But the meat was very chewy. Maybe a supplier's problem or a cook's problem, not sure. It didn't ruin the experience though. If we're ever in Spokane again, we'll probably give it another chance.

Clinkerdagger had one of the most spectauclar settings we have seen anywhere with great views of the rapids/falls from most tables.  And I must say the onion soup was quite spectacular, especially if you like lots of cheese (and I do!).  However, the rest of the meal went downhill - we had high expectations from reviews we had read and it failed to live up.  The shrimp/scallop pasta was fine/even good, but the sauce was a bit thin/watery and I was expecting spectacular.  The 'fresh' halibut was a bit dry and fishy tasting and quite a disappointment.  But I must say the grilled asparagus was great.  Sorry, but we made our first and last visit.

Fantastic location, great atmosphere, great decor, incredible attentive service…but there it ends. My wife’s prime rib was great, but my 9 oz Filet was comparable to eating a chewy sirloin, and did not even look like a tenderloin cut. I couldn’t help but notice that someone at a table next to us was served a normal “round” tenderloin, which I learned was a 7 oz Filet. I reluctantly complained about the poor cut of my steak, and was extremely happy to have our awesome server to have the entire item removed from our bill…very impressive! Server told me a long sorted story about the 7oz & 9 oz they serve…. which explained the difference in appearance and quality, needless to say I recommend to NEVER oder the 9 oz Filet at this restaurant.

I gave this 3 stars for the so so seafood linguine. Service was great. Seating just okay. The table had red lighting. Used my cellphone to read the menu. Didn't have a reservation and accepted a seat near the bar. Had a great view of the river, but no AC in that area. As for the food...to much butter and scallopes appeared to fresh, but tasteless. Zero flavor. The bottom of the dish has soggy tomato strips in what seemed to be water. Desert was bread pudding with no pudding consistency. Just chunks of bread covered with a sugar suryp. Maybe they cook a great steak or the hype is about the location. Great atmosphere to bring a date, but nothing to bring a solo guy back.

Excited to come here during a weekend away. Sat outside and the ambiance was great, but sadly that’s was the extent of what’s good about this place. We waited about 20 minutes to be greeted by the wait staff. After that everything took forever, next time he came by (again about 20-25 minutes) we ordered an appetizer which took about 30 minutes. All and all we were here over 2 hours and only saw the waiter about 4 times. To give them credit it’s during covid wave 2 so maybe they’re short staffed??

Had dinner there Saturday late afternoon/early evening outside on the deck with the wife. The view was breathtaking. We shared the signature Crab/artichoke dip which was fantastic for starters and then on to the French onion soup for my wife which came in a large crock with plenty of a three cheese blend topping which she said was delicious, my Caesar salad was quite good. Wife shared her Coho salmon with the fennel relish which was cooked to perfection (medium rare) I had the spicy teriyaki tenderloins which I thought was a bit too sweet. Only problem was that the sun was still quite strong and they didn’t have enough umbrellas to cover each table. Had to share one with another table…..didn’t work for either table.
