Since we first opened in 1995, Steamworks has been a favourite of Vancouver locals and visitors alike. Whether you're joining us for lunch, a drink after work, or a group dinner with friends and colleagues, we're honoured to have you with us.


Steamworks gets its name from the famous Gastown steam line that runs through our premises. Our onsite brewery uses steam to fire its kettles. The instant heat of steam allows for greater brewing finesse, and most importantly great tasting beer. Whether you're in the mood for a thirst quenching Lions Gate® lager, or a full bodied HeriocaTM Oatmeal Stout, we've got a beer to please your palate.

The Dine Outside Vancouver menu was a great value and the food was excellent. The service was outstanding, very helpful and pleasant staff from start to finish. I would highly recommend.

Did the Dine Outside menu. The meal was great: big portions and great taste! Included a Beer Flight, which was an added bonus (4 good sized glasses).

We drive over an hour from Chilliwack to dine here. Love the ambiance and quality beer/drinks. It’s my choice every time we head into Vancouver!

Service is always great! It was even better than normal this last time. We went for my Birthday and we were pleasantly surprised with how the server made our evening feel special.

Have been coming here for years - will continue to do so!

My friend and I enjoyed a pleasant time together having a soft taco. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. The location of the restaurant is very good, on the edge of Gastown overlooking the north shore.

The only thing was that we were close to a heater in the patio and was really hot, we asked a couple of times to turn in off, or lower it, but never happened.

We had a great server super friendly, making sure everything was okay for us. Because of COVID-19, tables were set up with appropriate distance as well as the menu was online through a QR scan. The bathroom was also set up to keep distance of each other.

Food was good, we ordered the Classic Pizza and Pepperoni Yellow Pepper Pizza. As well as beer and cider.

For 6 guests, we were seated at quite a small table. The restaurant wasn’t very busy and there were many other tables available. The server could have been more attentive. There were multiple times we had to request water. When we needed service, it look a while for the server to become visible.

Love the building! Food was fresh and not to long of a wait. Our waitress had better days. She was not most helpful with food recommendations or to personable. But none the less good experience and would come back!

Always a favourite spot in Vancouver and a great place to meet friends or date night. Never disappointed with the service, great tasting food and selection of beers and wines. The view to the North if you’re lucky to score a seat at the back is amazing!
Will return again and again!

Very nicely done food - the pizza was especially good, oh and the Manhattans too!
Server was nice, always there when we needed her, but not a "sticky, smiley, at-your-service" type.

It was really disappointing this time. I go there often but the food was cold and wasn't even tasty. Totally disappointing. We also had to wave the waitress down multiple times to get her attention.

We had a 6:00 reservation for 4 on a Sunday and one of our party was very late -- 1.5 hours. The waiter was patient and very attentive while we had a couple drinks and waited. When we finally did order we all had fish and chips. 16.99 for 1 piece and about $20 with 2 pieces of fish. The food came out really quickly but the fish batter was partially burnt on most plates. Fries were average. For the price I wasn't impressed. The restaurant also got very loud between 630 until 800 then quieted down. Conversation was difficult like being in a bar.
Overall just an average experience except for the staff who were all friendly and efficient from the hostess to the busboy.

Great location, ambience, view and service. Food was mediocre. Three out of four of the people at the table not too thrilled with the food, but that hot pretzel was great. Would go back again, sometimes the food is worth the compromise when everything else is outstanding

The staff was very friendly and accommodating, being able to seat us earlier than our reservation. The food was great (especially the poutine), and our server really knew his stuff when it came to the beer offerings. Overall, an enjoyable experience and one I would be happy to return to the next time I'm ever in town.
