Went with a friend and had a lovely time. Service was great and pea salad and French onion soup with the complimentary fresh garlic butter bread was all wonderful. Would return. Definitely get reservations.

All was great, getting a near waterfall view, ordered the 40 day aged steak, they were not particularly tender, the potatoes were Luke warm and the asparagus was cold, the waitress did not check our table during our time, because of this we did not...get a second round of drinks, I even moved the empty glasses to the very table edge in the hope she would notice, the flavours of the food were great, and my wife got a complimentary dessert as the booking was for her Birthday dinner, crème brûlée was very good, overall a nice venue but the main meal at $39 a plate did not meet our expectations.More

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.More

This restaurant overlooks the falls in the middle of Spokane - quite dramatic. the wait staff was great - friendly, fast and helpful. Food was OK - shrimp were overcooked

Two people ordered prime rib medium rare, both got prime rib that was brown all the way through. A second order was brought out quickly, but that brown prime rib should have never left the kitchen. The combination plate had a small thin piece of...average salmon, three scallops the size of quarters, the prawns were OK and the mashed potatoes were excellent.More

The service, food, atmosphere, and view was absolutely amazing! It is worth the drive to the middle of Spokane. If you haven’t been here, you are honestly missing out. I can not compliment this place enough!

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.More

My wife and I decided to give Clinkerdagger's a try since we've lived in Spokane for over twenty years and have never eaten there. The parking situation sucks. We paid to park and took our ticket in the restaurant for reimbursement but was told that...we should've brought the ticket in first before acquiring it. (Whaaaaaaat?) It's not like the parking is just outside of the restaurant either. Anyway, once we sat down and ordered we both agreed that the atmosphere is delightful, and the serving staff was friendly and professional. The food was incredibly good. I had the breaded scallops and lobster and Jackie had the Sole. We split our plates and were delighted with everything, except the parking, but the ambiance made up for that. Jackie and I both would recommend eating at Clinkerdaggers to anyone wanted to spend a wonderful night out on the town.More

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.More

Came in with a party of four to celebrate a special event. Atmosphere was excellent with beautiful decor highlighting the season. Pros: atmosphere, decor and location. Cons: booth was very uncomfortable, seats were too low and too far away from the table - would definitely...ask for chairs next time, table was leaning to the right so much so that our drinks 'literally' slid sideways. Ordered: Louis salad - massive amount of iceberg lettuce, came with two eggs, some crab, salmon, artichoke, asparagus, etc - for the cost, I would not get this again. Seafood trio was very good, salmon meal included excellent salmon and sauce but potatoes were undercooked. Moscow Mules were average. Overall a bit disappointed but would likely try the restaurant again.More

This place is located in a former flour mill with a decor of wood and brick. It overlooks the Spokane River and you can sit outside in good weather. Seafood and steaks are main fare. Prices are reasonable. My wife had the seafood Louie salad...and I had grilled salmon with asparagus. Both were delicious and well presented. You can walk here from a downtown hotel.More

PROS -easy to get to from downtown hotel -many wine selections and many food options to choose from -very nice and friendly service from Rob -tasty Halibut CONS -a bit over priced for items- like $35.00 for a small piece of Halibut -very over priced...wines (often 4 x retail ) -very few wine options from Washington... put more good wines from Walla Walla and Chelan Valley on the wine list. Help build Washington wine regions! -enhance the aspargus on the side of Halibut dish...they were so wimpy & thin -way too noisy- build some noise abatement in the celings and walls -place a a bit damp and cold -don't serve me $60.00 bottle wine on a cheap small nosed glass TRIPADVISOR- please stop with your COVID questions and help end the COVID theatre!More
