Steamworks is my comfort restaurant - I have daydreamed of sitting down in this restaurant countless times while deep in the backcountry. A conductor or a train smoke are my favorite beers in town, and I have my assortment of favorite menu items, which are always good, consistent, satisfying, hearty, well balanced, etc. It's my favorite place to go when I'm looking for something more than a burrito but it's not a super special occasion. It's not gourmet or organic or unique, but it's reasonably priced with a broad and solid menu and friendly waitstaff.
That said, everyone else seems to feel the same and I've stopped going in the evenings, because of the wait. I get annoyed that with all the restaurants in this town, that everyone else seems to want to come to Steamworks too (and they don't take reservations). I wish that either Steamworks opened up a 2nd location, or that someone else opened up a reasonably priced restaurant with better food than the other bars in town (which aren't up to Steamworks' level at all). Being able to order a shaved brussels sprouts and kale salad on the side means a lot to me! Thanks Steamworks. ALSO, please bring back the Bread ciabatta rolls. Letting those go was a major misstep, to me and everyone else I know.
