If you are a lover of history, industrial architecture, and are interested in something unique and interesting in Spokane, then you should definitely check out Steam Plant Square. Once a fully functional steam plant that operated for over 70 years, the last boiler in the Steam Plant was shut down in the year 1984 and from then on, the historic steam plant underwent several transformations giving result to the present Steam Plant that is complete with retail shops, brewery, and a restaurant. The interiors of the Steam Plant are completely different from the normal buildings and taking a tour of the historical landmark is a worthy experience for sure.

Steam Plant Reviews & Ratings
Very interesting place. Definite heavy industrial feel which should be the case for an old steam plant. Service was very good. Food and beer were good. I can recommend the smoked chicken bacon mac.
Unfortunately, we had a terrible experience trying to celebrate my friend's engagement. We made a reservation for my 4, but when we arrived, the hostess told us it would be a long wait and it would be better to go find a table down in the bar. We did get a table downstairs and the waitress took our drink order somewhat quickly. But she didn't come back with our drinks for about 15 minutes. Then she left her tray on our table and never came back. After another 30 minutes, we decided to go ask the bartender if we could just pay because we never got to order food and we were just going to eat somewhere else. The bartender was fantastic! She is the only reason I gave 2 stars instead of one. She was obviously very busy, but still took the time to give us our checks and bought us all shots to make up for the wait. We ended up getting burgers down the street rather than the nice dinner we were planning... needles to say, I won't be coming back.
We made a reservation for a party of 12 same day. Our table was located in a private room lined with old steam piping. It is a very nice space with interesting architecture and decorations. The our server was very friendly and handled our meals very well. Food and drinks were enjoyed by our entire party. We will definitely continue to be returning.
We had such a great nite here. We had family come in from out of town and took them here. There were minor issues with the cooking of the steaks and them running out of a cut of steak we had ordered. The manager came out and let us know and communicated what was going on. Which was something I had never experienced while eating out. I know things happen that are out of employees control. But the kindness and communication was what made the experience. Our server Alyssa was very attentive and helpful with questions over menu and what to order. The food ended up amazing!!! I can’t wait to go back and I would encourage anyone to eat here. Food was awesome and good service with great integrity.
I only went for happy hour, but the food was delicious. The blackberry margarita was flavorful but not too sour. We had the deep-fried ravioli with marinara sauce. The raviolis were good, but the marinara sauce was lacking in flavor. The brisket sliders were a nice size for $3, and were really good. Cool building!
