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
Nice place with great location, great beer with an above average selection of the usual pub food.
We had a very noisy section and literally could not hear each other. Not for a date night! But food was good and wait staff attentive.
Am a big fan of their butter chicken and their beers. It's the best around in town.
I took my mum here on a friend's recommendation. The service was mediocre. They did take an order and checked at our table if things were ok a couple of times but it took quite some time to get the bill and the server didn't come back take the bill soon. We walked up to the ladies at the front if we could give them the bill and they said the server will pick up the bill from our table so we had to trot back to our hotel, stand there for a couple of minutes and in the end walk up to the server and say here is the bill thanks. The food was also mediocre. I had seafood chowder and Caesar salad. It was ordinary. Mum's steak was covered in soot after ordering medium well. She had to carve off the outer layer of the steak to eat the steak as she felt too embarrassed to send it back. We will return here never.
Too noisy and portions were mediocre.
One dish said it came with seasonal vegetables which turned out to be a spear of zucchini and two pieces of pepper. Lots of mashed potatoes.
The fish and ships had few chips and dead looking coleslaw. Not very appetizing.
Beer was disappointing for a craft brewery but overall the experience was decent.
Awful. Truly awful. 20 minute wait for drinks. The breading on the crispy chicken burger had half fallen off, causing the chicken to be rock hard. Rest of the food was poor too, not good quality. Clearly the chefs at Steamworks do not care about the quality of their work. Steamworks needs a management overhaul, I used to love this brewery 5 years ago. Dont waste your money now.
The food is very good . Was also served quickly. Good menu. The beers are very good.
The resevation worked but we got wrong because I wanted (high seat) we got a normal and the right by the kitchen. The waitress was not exactly friendly on this evening. I think I will celebrate my birthday next time where different
Steamworks is an old favourite. Food and beer are good, and the location is great for us (coming from the North Shore by seabus and walking around downtown after). Lots and lots of seating means we can pretty much always get in.
Great location, good food and fantastic waiter who was attentive and very helpful! They offer a wide variety of food to we were able to make sure everyone in the family was happy. I would visit again.
For some reason the server didn't care if my drink was empty or cared to even ask if I wanted another one??????
Great food and service as always. Your hot wings are awesome!!
The food was pretty good. My friend and I had burgers and the meat was tasty, bread was good. My husband had a pulled pork sandwich, which he said was good and our other friend had a soup and salad bowl that he enjoyed. The fries were okay (but not great). Our waitress was fantastic! The only things I didn't like (and it was my fault for not considering this when choosing a restaurant) was the noise level - it was very hard to have a conversation because of the music and conversations of others. Also, the tables are very small - you can't keep 4 glasses of water, 4 beers and 4 dinners on the table. p.s. The beer was really good!
For some reason our server brought our appies with our main meals. It’s my biggest pet peeve when stuff like that happens. Otherwise food was good, service can def be faster as it wasn’t very busy.
Great friendly place, good food, great beers
Very good service
Accomodating servers when had extra people join our party
Went before Bryan Adams and had a lovely time
Quick post work drinks with some friends. Staff were friendly - food was good - beer and old fashioned were excellent.
We were hoping for views of the water, which we got... But it turned out to be just past the "backlot" and train yard. Also, the window bench two of us sat at was unbelievably uncomfortable. As for the service, our waiter was friendly and attentive. And the food was quite good. Everyone really enjoyed what they got. No one in our party ordered beer, but they had an impressive selection and a flight of 10 on the menu too. I can heartily recommend this place to anyone.
Went as a group of 5 friends. Upon arriving, the front staff ignored us for a few minutes. Once we got the food, the fries were hard as rock, the pretzel had too much salt!, also the blue cheese tasted like it had been diluted with something else, waitress seemed annoyed and impatient when serving us. The only good part was the hedgehog ice cream dessert and pool tables!
Very noisy from people talking and traffic eating outside on deck otherwise very enjoyable
Wanted an inexpensive healthy option for grilled food near Rodgers Arena. Shoukd have gone Asian.
Food here highly mediocre. Chicken was dry, salad boring, fish tacos meh. Slaw not too good.
Excellent beer selection
A nice meal. Prices are a bit higher than your Moxies or whatever, but the food is a cut or two above the chain places. A nice patio and some great harbour views. Some excellent brews on tap. Service was quick, friendly and competent. Great casual experience.
BBQ chicken burger was good. Very filling. It was a decent portion for $15.99! I couldn’t even finish all the fries.
Great beer great food.
Did not enjoy the food- fish tacos were more like a burrito. I’d only come back for the drinks.
Everything was great!
The hot wings with blue sauce were off the scale! Will be going back.
Flagship IPA is banging 6.7% fruity
Great pub food
food was below average. my burger was tasteless. yam fries were good. steelhead entree was overpriced. server was awesome. loud and noisy and busy if thats what you want
Great food, great service, super cool building.
You can't go wrong at Steamworks..have eaten here on more than one occasion and it's consistently great. Lots of menu choices, great food, great service and you can't beat the location.
Steamworks offers the standard pub food with great ambiance and beer menu. We had reservations and got a lovely view of the North Shore before dusk. The place was busy with cozy bar scene buzz. Of course my date tried a brew but recommend asking your server as the special brews will sell out. We enjoyed our house brew burger and salad. The apple caramel pie with ice cream blew us away- excellent value for $8! If you check out their washrooms, you’ll discover that the place is like an underground labyrinth - definitely will return if we’re back in Gastown area.
My girlfriend and I had our first date here and we enjoy going back from time to time trying out something new we had seen another couple eating the previous visit. Makes for a good time tryingn a new food and remembering the last one
Good food, good beer and very good service offered by Helen! Mood was great!
Have been wanting to go here for years and it was worth the wait. Managed to get a 5pm reservation for a Saturday night. Drinks were great, dinner was great, service was great, view was great - a really enjoyable experience.
Hubby had the GF pizza crust and said it was the best he's had yet.
Hope to get back again soon!
In town on a stopover and found this place close to my hotel. What a great surprise. The beer, food and service were all outstanding. I will be sure to come back when I am back I. Vancouver.
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
