About Steamworks Gastown
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.

Steamworks Gastown Ratings and Reviews
Always a great time!
We have been to Steamworks a number of times and always enjoy the menu and selection of beers/drinks/wine.
Really good beer choices and the best chili north of the Border
Very slow service and stood around talking to other idle servers most of the time
This was my third time eating here and my girlfriends first. I have always come here for the great food and atmosphere and it has not disappointed me yet! It’s a great location since there is parking everywhere. It Is next to waterfront station for those who transit.
Attentive staff. Great view from the patio. Try the Thai pizza, amazing!
Very pleasant meal. Relaxed atmosphere but fairly high noise level. Prompt cheerful service. I will definitely return.
Food was very good pub style food. We were disappointed in the service - indifferent server.
So great to be able to make a reservation & our table had a view which was sweet.
I would’nt say food is the greatest, burgers were a bit bland, pizza on greasy side, dessert wasn’t great, but overall our table was happy.
Server was fun & did a great job!
Excellent selection of local craft biers. You can get a taster from 4 to 10 types of bier.
The sea food chowder was superb.
The main menu also had great selections but we had appetizers great variety!
We had an amazing view of the mountains from our table! The food was delicious and a wide variety on the menu as we had some vegetarians in our group.
We had burgers. THey were so dry you could hardly eat them. Would definitely not go back. Was so disappointed after reading the reviews. We were in Vancouver for 3 days and could have eaten somewhere that was so much better.
Reliable! Every visit we enjoy very good food and very good service.
Felt for making a reservation in advance we had a pretty bad table. Was very noisy in the restaurant. Service was slow . It was just ok. Don't think I'd rush back too soon.
Great service and food. Terrific view
Had an amazing time here. Food was really good, and beverages were amazing. Will definitely be back! :)
Fantastic dining experience. Definitely will visit this location again when in the area.
Great atmosphere and even better food and beer. Perfectly walkable in and around Gastown.
Another good experience at Steamworks. Love this place.
Overall, service and food are good; drinks are pricey though and too noisy.
Waiter/Waitress service was good too.
Unfortunately we left after 10 minutes - no one came to our table.
Fun Vancouver restaurant. Dinner was great and a great value too!
We always look for brew pubs when we are traveling. This one was not outstanding, but it wasn't disappointing either. Would probably go back if we had the chance.
Our night was amazing . You have the ability through the app to share what your celebrating. But no acknowledgement of that until we asked our server (waitress)about what options for one celebrating their birthday. The waitress was dis interested in us from the moment we sat down. All after she took our drink orders and app order. She was like food order now.. we were enjoying time with friends from toyko we wanted to take our time and chat which felt a little rush. But food and drinks were great.
Awesome place. Need reservation, very busy. The filet mignon is to die for!
Friendly fun service, great for beer and burgers. Take a pass on the lobster ravioli - a few bits of limp lobster floating in a sea of too much rich cream sauce, although the ravioli and bits of prosciutto were okay when relieved of some of the dressing.
Went prior to Canada's 150 fireworks, fast service and good food, just right to set up for the event.
Awesome food and great cocktails! Totally recommended.
I went for the ten-tap sampler ($21.99), but it turns out they have a policy of not selling this to one person. But my server was willing to work around this rule by bringing out one four-tap sampler ($8.49 each) at a time. (They didn't have the summer ale nor Commonwealth ale at the time.) I enjoyed trying out each of the quarter-pint glasses of different brews while reading the beer notes on the menu to understand what kind of malts and hops go into each one. I'm grateful that my server knew how to maximize my tasting experience despite some odd company rules. (I am not driving in Vancouver, so it seems like a weird rule.)
Great restaurant and brewery. Lots of choice for food & beer. Enjoyed it very much
Food was good, not outstanding. Beer was excellent and IPA was nice and hoppy. Service was prompt and friendly. Great brick walls, curving staircase, and historic feel.
Uriges Pub mit lebhafter Atmosphäre und sehr guter und großer Auswahl an Bieren, teilweise selbstgebraut. Wir empfehlen das selbstgebraute Kölsch und BBQ Chicken Burger.
Eine Reservierung in diesem vielbesuchten Pub ist empfehlenswert.
Table too small for 4 people who were having dinner. Would be nice if we had the option to reserve the patio as well.
Nice nostalgic room, good size portions and friendly, timely service
The fish & CHips were cod at halibut prices. A reasonable portion of fish, but small portion of chips. A small amount of bland coleslaw. Service was reasonably fast to cater to quick turnover. The food was just over fast food in quality/presentation but overpriced. Other brewpubs sell beer at very good prices, but not here. Premium price for their own beer. Tourist trap prices but have a lot of locals. Second visit, the burger was not excitable either.
Canibal Cafe has closed so the quest for good food/beer near the water will lead me to try Mahoney and Tap & Cask as they are within a five minute walk.
The food was pretty decent and the service started out great but after we had our food the server seemed to disappear. Great location next to the train station ideal for commuters out to the suburbs. The bench seat at the window was extremely uncomfortable and too high for the table. I ended up with a kink in my neck trying to sit properly. They should pull out the benches and simply use chairs.
Restaurant was very busy, tables were intimately close together, restaurant was loud and fun. Beer was delicious and food was filing, typical pub food
Great neighborhood find, seated right away, very good service, fun place but not so loud you can't talk. Enjoyed our dinner, good hamburger and the roasted chicken was also quite tasty.
Great Pub food!! Try the pretzel with smoked cheese. Good wine and beer list, service was good considering how many large parties there were in one area. Pretty waterfront setting
Fish tacos were the worst I have ever had. Yuk. Big guy next to me looked like he didn't enjoy them either bc he only ate one.
Again we had an attentive but not pushy server. Beer was local and cold and good. Great view for my guest. Just an all round great dinner. PS good parking close by too. Tnx gw
