This is truly a piece of history. You can walk through the steam plant, read interpretive signs and see the old pipes. It's been kept true to form, yet an amazing dining location. Parking is spendy, but if you have dinner they will reimburse the cost. A great place to visit.

Really not that special. Interesting to look at some of what used to be a steam plant. Not really much else to see. They advertise shops and food but my wife and I found not much of interest or anything good to eat. If you are totally bored with nothing else left to see and do in Spokane I guess... More

This place has a really neat atmosphere and you can go into one steam stack. I had the jalapeño beer, which was not good and the Gumbo which was ok but not great. The service was excellent, I would recommend for a neat place but have reservations on the food.

Toured the square for 45 minuets before dinner at Stacks Restaurant located in the square. Allot of local history in the building and very interesting how they converted space for use. If desire you can eat your meal in a converted Steam boiler firebox with some of the pipes still installed.

Instead of taking down an old building, they built some stores and restaurants around the old steam plant. You still can see history while either dining or shopping. Ingenious and with a lot of character. Kudos to whomever thought of that.

There are a few nice niche boutiques on the one side, and a restaurant on the other. It's a great renovation of the old steam plant. One of the better things about downtown Spokane.

We stopped by on a Sunday for a look around, and though the shops were closed, we had a beer at the restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed looking around the restored steam plant. The architects did a fabulous job of retaining the features of the original steam plant. One of the boilers is now a private dining room (yes, it's big),... More

Found this place on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. Had muscles as an appetizer and they were great. Also had the Blood Orange Beer and it hit the spot. If you're in town looking for a place to go this is it.
