    Service, server were great, was disappointed that menu online is different than in person. Also my husband ordered shrimp and crab fettuccine and very spicy. Nothing on the menu indicating there would be cayenne so it was pretty much inedible for him. Otherwise drinks were great and our server was awesome.

    Our dinner was incredible as always and Clinkerdagger a favorite of mine and my husband’s! But, I took a friend out to dinner and we didn’t get our food until almost an hour after we ordered. We were there exactly 2 hours, way too long. Yes, they were busy, however I watched several tables get seated after us, eat and leave while we still sat there. So, the night was a little disappointing.

    Met a girlfriend for lunch at Clinks because it is such a fun place , great food snd service. Have been going there for 42 years. Was a bit noisy because it was so busy but we managed to enjoy ourselves anyway. Drinks are a bit high priced. Had a good Cosmo though it was $15. A bit high. Quality and quantity of food was fabulous. Had my favorite, The open faced crab and artichoke sandwich. Incredible.

    Warmly welcomed. Minor wait for our table but sat in bar. (Bartender did not know how to make a scotch old fashion. ) Great table. Asparagus was tough, chewy and should not have been served. Filet mignon was tender but over cooked. The Waygu (sp?)steak was cooked to perfection but tough and hard to cut. Felt somewhat rushed even though we made a point of telling wait staff that this was our 54th wedding anniversary and we didn't want to be rushed. Wouldn't recommend this place to friends.

    Not possible to ruin a meal more than this place did for us. Poor preparation on the two fish dinners. Overcooked mahi, undercooked halibut. Flavorless rice. Rock hard vegetables. Management comped our inedible entrees. Way overpriced. Loud as heck. Waitstaff overwhelmed. Do not patronize this sorry excuse for a cafe.

    We’ve been dining at Clinkerdagger’s since 1975. It’s one of our most favorites! We think it’s even better today than it was, and we mean that in the most positive ways. Top quality food, and presentation, and excellent service and care. We always love going to Clink’s!!👍🏻😀

    I made the reservation over 2 weeks prior to Mother's Day to take my 84 yr old mom who's has terminal lung cancer. Fortunately she still has some mobility as she walks with a walker but a wheelchair would have been very difficult if not impossible to navigate all the steps/no ramps in the restaurant. Despite the fact my reservation was well in advance, we were first seated at a tiny table for two on solid wood chairs off to the side in the dark dining room with no view out the windows. My mother is very thin and frail, her chair was very uncomfortable for her. I noticed a nearby table for two closer to the window open up with bench seat on one side and asked our server if we could move. Server was very helpful to accomodate us which made our experience much more pleasant. The food was good (I had shrimp - mom had pork chop) but both served with charred vegetables that were way overcooked, shriveled up and over charred, brussels sprouts not properly trimmed had some tough pieces, mom didn't eat any of hers... I hate to waste food & money so I made myself eat mine. We had a pleasant time and I would like to come again and try something else. If I did, I would ask any side veggies to be steamed not charred.

    I used to love Clinkerdagger’s ... But this was a super disappointing Mother’s Day… The food was cold, dry, very over priced, overcooked and totally tasteless… The service was mediocre at best… We couldn’t even get him to return to refill our drinks… drinks that were watered down and didn’t resemble bloody Mary’s ... And he never ever brought my son his French onion soup… The only good thing about the experience was sitting by the window and watching the beautiful Spokane Falls… I don’t think I’ll ever be back ... ... this used to be an amazing restaurant that I looked forward to returning to, each Mother’s Day… But after spending over $200 for three terrible meals… It’s a guarantee I won’t be back ... 😔😔👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼

    It was Mother’s Day at 1pm when we went and for a party of four, so it is expected to be busy and that is fine. We were seated quickly because we had reservations and our server was very nice but busy. Our food was cold when it came an hour after ordering and missing ingredients. We had 2 orders of Eggs Benedict, one came with asparagus and one didn’t. We also ordered the Milton Chocolate cake with berries and there were no berries on the plate, (My parents steak and prime rib seem to be fine and their bread pudding was delicious)We didn’t complain or notify the waiter cause the wait for him to come back wasn’t worth it. The views are beautiful and the building is historic, I don’t recommend Clinkerdagger for a special occasion or for a WOW experience at this time because every table possible was full and they didn’t seem to have enough staff (as everyone is experiencing) they should have cut down the occupancy because it effected our experience as being underwhelming and sloppy for what you spend. I’m not complaining about the price, I knew I was going to spend a bit there because it’s a nice place and typically great food.

    Went on a date night with my partner; the food was on point and our waiter, Joe, was also in point (if we were Rockefellers he'd have received a tip to match the bill). The only thing left to be desired was the music - I wish it were a tad bit louder...BUT that's okay - it was a great time and we're so grateful to Joe and happy for the delicious food.
