Steam Plant unveils updated interior, menus

The restaurants inside the landmark Steam Plant recently announced changes to the interior decor, menus and even names.

Updates to interiors of the restaurant and pub formerly known as the Steam Plant Grill were completed recently, and there are new names for the restaurant, microbrewery and pub housed in the historic complex.

The full-service restaurant is now known as Stacks at Steam Plant and it is led by chef Barry Matthews, who is exercising some new culinary freedom over the offerings. The menu features regional and local ingredients, as well as meats, fish, cheese and vegetables smoked on-site using a variety of fruit and hardwoods. Beer brewed by the Steam Plant Brewing Co. is also a featured ingredient.

Steam Plant Brewing Co. produces more than 10 microbrews on site. The brewery was formerly a branch of Coeur d’Alene Brewing Co. The microbrewery recently hired Greg Piller as head brewer. Piller worked with Coeur d’Alene Brewing and has recently begun recrafting the beers that are offered by the Steam Plant Brewing Co.

Quaff a beer in the in the Steam Plant Pub and order from a more casual menu there, including some of the favorites from Stacks.

There are more details at We’ve posted the new menus for Stacks and the Steam Plant Brewing Co. and Grill.

The Steam Plant is at 159 S. Lincoln St. Reach the restaurant by calling (509) 777-3900.
