This is a wonderfully unique place. The vibe is active. The wait staff in T shirts and sneaks were all so friendly and attentive. The food is over the top in portions but was very good. The coffee not so great but the bloody Mary’s...sure looked good. Lots of tvs with sports but we found a table by the window that avoided them. If you want a bigggg breakfast it’s the place to go.More

I went in and I didn’t have enough money on my card, so she “voided “the whole transaction and charged my card twice instead of just paying what was owed, train servers to actually know what they are doing, I believe her name was Erin...and the manager I talked to (Jenny or jenine) was very disrespectful and telling me “well what do you want me to do do you not understand, do you need me to spell it out to you!!!” Because on my bank statement it didn’t show any voids and usually my bank does refunds right away, TOTAL BS on what they were telling me, I was not treated the best when I called and yes I did call in frustration but treat your customers with some respect and not talk to them like they are stupid. She says this happens quite often and she gets many phone calls for this, but yet still doesn’t show servers how to ring out correctly instead of doing a whole void when not necessary!!!! Makes no sense! I used to love this place but how I was spoken to never again!!! I guess we will see what happens!!!More

We had the opportunity to sit at the diner counter. The food was fantastic and the service was even better. One my kids had the colossal cinnamon roll....to quote him,"he had a roll with the frosting." Great place!

We visited the Satellite Diner and Lounge for the second time. The first time, a few years ago we sat on the cafe/grill side, but this time we sat on the more 'elegant' side, if that makes sense. This place gets busy, so we got...here early on a Saturday morning, around 9:00 am. We had a couple of bloody marys, and they were really good. Especially the "spicy" one. A few of the dishes we ordered. I got the eggs benedict, and it was one of the best I've ever had. As you can see, very large portions. That is a lot of bacon! The service was very good, and we all had a wonderful breakfast. The only negative comment was that the pancake was not quite cooked in the center, so if you like pancakes, I would ask for a well done one.More

I have been having breakfast at the Satelite for a number of years. You can always plan on great food cooked the way you want it and a fun-loving staff. Yes, it is a dive bar, but such a wonderful one. I take all of...my high school foreign exchange students there and they all love it. If you are in town have breakfast there. Food getting to the table can be a little slow because of its popularity.More

Went for brunch, or more accurately went for breakfast food at lunchtime. I had the Wggs Benedict and it was as good as they brag that it is! Loved that the ham was several thin slices stacked together. Hollandaise was excellent without being overpowering. Husband...had the Biscuits and Gravy Meal and really enjoyed it. I had a taste and the gravy wasn’t particularly southern, but we really liked it. Our server was really nice and efficient. My only complaint was the dust. I was sitting under a huge fork decoration and it was quite dusty. Then I realized that the walls were really dusty, too. Would return, though, happily.More

We had breakfast here. As with most diners, we didn't go for the decor/ambience, but we had a hearty breakfast, well prepared, with a very tasty vegetarian Benedict

I had heard the food was good, but I was a little reluctant based on the overall appearance of the place. When I went there it was not crowded at all, and appeared clean and quiet. The food was excellent! A great menu and the...service was really good. I’ll be back!More

This diner is in downtown Spokane, and is not a fancy place. We had breakfast there, and the food was terrific. The service was fast and efficient. They have good coffee. My wife & I both had omelets which were huge. And flavorful.

This place is good for a bite when buzzed. I personally am obsessed with their philly cheesesteak with au jus. Often long wait times because of the Gonzaga crowd, but it's no biggie. Only downside is the dust level. Clean your stuff guys! Don't go...here if you mind smelling like a diner when you leave.More

Staying downtown in January we decided to try someplace new to eat. As a Spokane native, I hadn't tried a lot of downtown places when I lived there, so I try to make a point of trying somewhere new when I do get back. It...was a great place for brunch on a Saturday afternoon, with the option of having breakfast items or lunch items. The service was great, the food was tasty, and I will definitely go back next time I'm in the area.More

It's a small seating area with 20 or so tables & booths in the "family section". Looks like a party of 30 could fit on the 21+ and over lounge area.

ere is meter parking around the entire block, and meters don't need to be paid after 7 pm, nor Sunday. Be aware of the cab stations though, those are hefty tickets. There is also 3 lots surrounding with reasonable rates. :)
