“Love Steamworks, but seating was weird...”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

We made reservations and they put us in the basement seating because of the "lunch rush." The place was dead all through lunch and we were eating by ourselves in the cavernous basement. A little odd and we missed out on a sunny view, but the food was good as always.

This is the best restaurant I've ever been in! The atomsphere is absolutely fantastic and the beers and cocktails are top notch! The food is also great!

“Return Visit and glad we did”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

This was a return visit for us and we were not disappointed. Our server was attentive but a bit yappy at payment time. Food was gorgeous. I only had the Poutine but would go back for it. Beer was great and its obviously made with love and great care. Love the atmosphere of this place and the general feeling that you are somewhere nice but not too posh! Recommend a visit if you are in Gastown or if you enjoy a great glass of ale.

“every time a good time”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

no matter when we go or what we order the service and food are excellent. Everyone is frienldy and service time frames are good as well. Last visit one of my friends order was on the pass bar (right across from us) for about 10min and another friend about half that. we hoped the order would get picked up but nope it came to us. they quickly offered to replace after she said how long the food was sitting there, it was quickly redone. just fried food so not sure why the chef didn't manage his time better, but great service and great food every time. always a good place

“My "Go-to" place in Vancouver”
Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

This must be my 6-7th visit and still love this place.

The building is beautiful and it's always full. The beer is excellent and the prices quite reasonable. Nothing wrong here!

Beer soup is a MUST.
