Really enjoyed a flight of 4 bartender recommended IPAs & super pan-seared Brussel Sprouts. Had an 8oz Belgian Strong Ale from River City that was top notch 10.5!

Ive been here before. Its a decent local place with average bar food. Very good burgers, Fish and Chips are crispy coated and surprisingly very bland but Id go back for the burgers.

I have been coming here for 20 years when I am in town but this time the Burgers were great as usual, but the Fries had some kind of seasoning on them that was disgusting. I asked for regular Fries and they said they came in a bag with that seasoning. They brought me some Fries with that seasoning hand... More

I had lunch here one day, and dinner another. Lunch was a French dip sandwich which was pretty basic, but very good. The tap root beer was awesome! Dinner was a flight of ciders - nice selection, but none to my taste - and a small marguerite pizza and house salad with blue cheese dressing. The dressing was wonderfully chunky... More

This is the best place for a delicious hamburger, crisp French fries, first rate cocktails and ambiance. The pea salad is a treat! Lots of Spokane historic photos on the walls and a vintage motorcycle are part of this warm decor. Service has always been excellent each time I've visited for lunch or dinner.

Went here with the kids on a recent trip to Spokane. My son had a basic burger, which he proclaimed one of the best he's had. I had a petite sirloin, which was adequate but a bit overcooked. My daughter had the fettucini alfredo, which had an odd amount of onion in the sauce. I guess they are serious about... More

Nice bar with good food. May be a little pricey for some. Our waiter seemed to be harried. He was prompt, but again average. Within walking distance of Red Lion.

We are on a special cleansing diet and there were several menu items that fit our needs. Our server was friendly and helpful. Fish tacos were perfect for my husband (a little too spicy for me) and my seafood arugula salad was wonderful. We ordered the pepper steak strips for an appetizer medium rare. It was way to overcooked, even... More

HUGE beer menu. Like stated in the heading the onion rings were great. Good atmosphere. The food was good, not superb. Maybe a little pricey for a pub, but not too expensive to keep us from returning.
