The Jalapeno Bacon Burger was really good but the service was slow. Cool atmosphere. Would definitely here again!

If you are interested in drinking some craft brews than this place clearly has the variety with over 50 draft taps no other place in town really rivals it. The place gets crowded and if you decide to arrive with out reservations during peek times prepare for a wait. It also tends to be popular with tourists. I ordered the... More

My husband had their French Onion Soup and 1/2 Reuben sandwich. Again very good, Overall, they had many items I would like to try but I... More

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.
