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.

    Really great food and service even on a very busy night! The fried pickles were perfection! The prices are okay for the area! Try to scoop up a table with a view! Also the upstairs and downstairs have very different vibes, so you can choose your adventure :)

    Really delicious food and they accommodated another guest who wasn’t part of the original booking. The service was great and prompt and honestly we had a pleasant positive experience overall. Great ambiance, we weee upstairs and it was nice and warm despite sitting next to the door and people coming in and out. Our server was attentive and quick with responses to our food related queries and bringing out our meals. We got the fried pickles as an Appie, Tuna Poke Bowl, chicken strips and poutine with fries (kids shared), Plant based burger with salad and a Beef Bhrger. Every meal was delicious and hot! Crispy salty fries. I personally got the Tuna Bowl and it was so good! Might I say it was better than the otherwise known as the Holy Grail at Cactus Club. Decent portion of Tuna, crispy onions, beans, I wish I had taken my leftovers home. I’ll certainly be back here again.

    Deep fried pickles were awesome but the mains were lacklustre Ordered the seafood fettuccine which had pea sized salmon that was cooked to death as well as the prawns were severely overcooked. Could have used fresh pepper and a sprinkle of salt before it left the kitchen or a squeeze of lemon juice to brighten it up The jambalaya had good flavour but it was lost as it was smothered in the aïoli topping which was extremely oily The dark chocolate dessert was delicious.

    Lively, noisy, sports bar atmosphere with decent food. Service was terrible. They must have a staffing problem because many tables were empty, yet they couldn’t properly service the people they did seat. After waiting 30 minutes for our dessert order we were told “there was a printer problem.” Funny how other tables didn’t have a similar problem. We canceled the order, paid the bill and left promptly.

    Great food, great location, tasty food. I ordered the Chorizo and Prawns jambalaya. It eas really good. I noticed that they almost have similar menu as Rogue; but the jambalaya here at Steamworks' better. Prices are reasonable. Great location to meet up with friends as it's steps aeay from Waterfront station. Service was excellent too. Very friendly and efficient!

    Steamworks is looking a bit tired and tattered, in need of some tlc (the upstairs section anyway…didn’t go downstairs this time). However, the attentive service we received was amazing. We had a few different wait staff attend to our table, and the wonderful device more than made up for the tired state of the pub. Thank you!
