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.
Steamworks is very much a boutique event facilitity. Gaze upon spectacular views of the harbour and north shore while you enjoy our friendly, professional service. With three private rooms, Steamworks can host private parties from 30 to 700 people. From burgers to bubbly, we do it all!!View Private Dining Details
Seafood fettuccine was marginal. Sauce was like soup. My guest's chicken was was overcooked.
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.
Super Essen - etwas laut - tolle Biere
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
Enjoyed the Seafood Fettuccine.
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.
Great location on the waterfront in downtown Vancouver with phenomenal views of the water. I really enjoyed grabbing a drink with old friends and catching up over some delicious poutine.
Very good selection of beer/ales, also available for purchase in attached outlet. Food good, serving staff pleasant and efficient
Wonderful spot for lunch! The staff was able to move us on quick notice when the original table did not work for our group. Great menu, good prices, busy location so reservations are a good idea.
chicken tenders were very dry and over cooked. otherwise, the staff was friendly and accommodating.
Nice place overall to get something to eat. Like the ambience and it being on the water. Food was so so not even as good as the regular pub food I'm used to it's a good place to get a beer
Great food and atmosphere. Love the pub decor casual style and the selection of beers.
The only one pint - I have ordered medium raw steak but obtained well done
Otherwise - no issues.
Walked in at 12 in the afternoon and make a reservation, the hostess said they were full for the evening, went on open table and there were lots of openings, so that is the way to go I guess! We arrived a little before our 6 pm reservation and we're seated right away, had the best server, fight of beers and watched the game. Food was excellent.
good service. good atmosphere
It was good overall. Good location near the waterfront and transit. Neat old building and nice views. Food was good. Pretzel was great!
We were in town overnight for a cruise leaving the next day. We loved walking from our hotel to Steamworks. We shared a pretzel and I had the seafood chowder, my wife had the beer soup. We enjoyed all.
Great atmosphere. When I asked about the sugar levels in the Apple crumble, the waiter got the chef to make one especially for me without the caramel topping etc. That is exceptional service. I did ask the waiter to thank the chef for me.
The TV sound leveLs were however “a little intrusive!l
Great location. Delicious fish and chips for lunch.
We made a reservation for a specific table and they gave it away to another couple, we had to wait an hour although we made a reservation weeks prior...
Invited out of town guests for lunch. Good time great food but very noisy.
A great choice! Ask for a table with a view or the patio. Craft beer galore. Some seafood choice obviously a pub atmosphere!
Delightful meal, super friendly service. Ideal location in Gastown neighborhood.
A nice sportsbar with good food and the best Beer in Vancouver!
The wine was great! Worst charcuterie board I’ve ever had...too many olives and short on cheese and meat. The baguette was dry to a crisp and not cut all the way through, so got quite mangled as we tried to tear pieces off.
The best wings!!! Great service....great location...highly recommend
A great place to meet friends for dinner. Excellent drinks and food. Great ambiance that allows for conversation. Central and great views.
Very good food... service was a little slow
We added a person to our entourage & Steamworks were very accomodating. One dish came late and we were not charged for it. Our waitress was outstanding!
Reserved with Open Table. The site offered a chance to request a view which I did and to offer whether it was a special occasion which I did. Neither of those two pieces of information was acknowledged by the restaurant. The restaurant was fine, food was good, it was a busy weekend, we ended up in the downstairs next to the kitchen. I didn’t feel the need to point out the info provided with the reservation; however another person might feel differently.
Very good. Would go back again.
Although the service, ambiance, and location of this pub are all excellent and the food is decent, the big surprise--considering that this is a pub that specializes in local brews--is that the beer is pretty bad. We ordered to different samplers of their and local beers (a total of 10 beers), and only two of them where semi-decent. In short: go for the ambiance, location, and good service, but not for the beer or even the food (which was okay, but not foodie-worthy).
Great food and service I would recommend to everyone
Perfect place for a casual gathering of old friends.
thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Waiter was knowledgeable and made good recommendations, and price point was affordable.
Glad we made a reservation cause it was very busy inside and out on the patio. Ppl ahead of us that didn't make reservations had wait time of 30mins according to hostess.
We were seated comfortably for our table of 4 by the bay windows and our server was professional and personable. (Malcolm)
We enjoyed our drinks and courses. This was the second time dining here in less than 2 months, where we celebrated my sister's birthday back in May. SteamWorks was an easy choice when we were planning our dining eventtonight meeting a friend from overseas.
We just love the ambiance & vibe of SteamWorks gastown. Keep up the good work. We'll be back shortly.
Teresa was amazing. They made my birthday lunch a memorable one.
