I hadn’t been to Steamworks in a while. It’s been open in Gastown for over 20 years and while I had been there for larger events (company party once and an engagement party another time) I haven’t been there for dinner in several years.
My wife and I ended up staying downtown overnight and wanted some good, unpretentious food. We went for a walk towards Gastown and decided to stop in at Steamworks for something we could share.
It is a pub, so mostly pub fare is on the menu. We’re both vegetarian which often limits our choices, but Steamworks did offer several salads and pizzas that looked good. We chose to order a small garden salad and their ‘classic’ pizza without meat. I had a pint of their house lager and my wife a glass of Perseus red wine. The food was delicious and service was prompt. The bill was about $50 before tip. Not bad for a couple’s casual night out in Vancouver.
Yaletown Brewing Co. is a very similar experience, but we enjoyed coming back to Steamworks again. It’s a great casual spot, in a historic part of town.
