Before becoming one of Spokane’s most beloved restaurants, the steam plant operated for nearly 70 years as a functional steam plant. 10 years after its closure in 1986, it was transformed from a dirty, drab industrial behemoth into a cathedral-bright architectural showcase. Now, at the Steam Plant restaurant, you can enjoy their unique dishes with unforgettable flavors in an atmosphere that reflects quality and care.
