  • No-Li Brewhouse

    1003 E. Trent Ave. Spokane - East


    Is there anything better than drinking an ice-cold beer by the water? You can do just that at No-Li Brewhouse, the brewery that created “Spokane Style” beers and has seen their bottles shipped across the country. Enjoy one of their “Usual Suspects,” offered all year round, or a rotating seasonal craft brew, while taking full advantage of their outdoor patio that overlooks the Spokane River. Try their newly released Switch Hitter Golden Ale, which debuted earlier this summer in place of the ever-loved Creme Ale. The brewers at No-Li love to experiment with flavors, so order the “randall,” which changes every few days, and prepare for taste-bud excitement. The randall is a chamber that connects to the keg, freshly infusing beer with whatever they decide to put in it that day.

  • Nosworthy's Hall of Fame

    4045 N. Government Way Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls


    No smoking and cash only? That's two strikes against Nosworthy's right there. But those inconveniences are more than compensated for by the 32-ounce glass chalices of domestic beer for unbeatable prices. Nosworthy's walls are covered with photos of athletes, many autographed, and we feel that any sports bar that doesn't have such an array is simply not trying. Plus, the pancakes are enormous, and the bacon is cooked just right.
  • O'Doherty's Irish Grille

    525 W. Spokane Falls Blvd. Spokane - Downtown


    Downtown emphasizes the Irish; in the Valley, it's the barbecue. Either place, you’ll find the Irish stew — meaty broth chock-full of veggies and potatoes — and the Burnt End sandwich, which sounds funny, but it's tangy and delicious. And if you're hankering for a Butte meat pasty, this is the place. On the boozing side, O'Doherty's is where you go to get a Johnny Jump-up (a shot of whiskey dropped in a pint of cider). It's also where you go hoping to see someone stand on the bar and sing for a chance to put a dollar bill on the wall. (July 2012)

  • O'Doherty's Irish Pub & BBQ

    11723 E. Sprague Spokane Valley


    The menu here is similar to the downtown O'Doherty's — Irish stew, corned beef and cabbage, fish and chips — with the addition of barbecue dishes like pulled pork, smoked right there in the applewood smoker. You can get Guinness and other Irish favorites on tap, and if you like beer of the root variety, they have their own special blend. The ambience is closer to sports bar than Irish pub, but a sip of the stout will get you in the right mood. (AC)

  • Old Spaghetti Factory

    152 S. Monroe St. Spokane - Downtown


    Little ones will enjoy the kid-sized spaghetti and sauce, at this family-friendly Italian spot inside an old brick warehouse by the railroad tracks. They'll also love the spumoni ice cream for dessert, but adults can take solace in the pasta with browned butter and grated myzithra cheese. Also, the surprisingly beautiful bar, which could be pretty cool if it weren't, well, at the Spaghetti Factory. The space is old-world chic, with a huge wood bar-back, plush booths, a backgammon tabletop and 10 or so inexpensive cocktails.
  • Olive Garden

    221 N. Wall St. Spokane - Downtown


    If you’re looking for friendly service and a family atmosphere, don’t miss the bar at the Olive Garden, where they also offer wine sampling and unique Italian drinks. (January 2013)
  • One Shot Charlie's

    200 S. Coeur d'Alene Ave., Harrison Rural Idaho


    If you can stomach the long and windy drive, it's beautiful. But going by boat is best. It's a taxidermist’s paradise with stuffed deer and critters galore. This marina bar on Lake Coeur d'Alene is hopping during the summer. Give the bar dog a scratch behind the ears. Drink straight whiskey. (JB)

  • The Onion

    302 W. Riverside Ave. Spokane - Downtown


    Hearty burgers and towers of onion rings promise to send your family home fat and happy. Friendly, prompt service is a plus, and while the ’50s traditional roadside diner atmosphere might be a bit overwhelming for adults, the more things kids have to look at while they munch, the happier they (not to mention their parents) seem. (July 2013)

  • The Oval Office

    620 N. Spokane St. Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls


    Despite its decidedly “domestic” name, The Oval Office serves Northwest cuisine with “foreign flair” — namely Mediterranean, Mexican and Moroccan influences. They have steak options, seasonal fish, a wide range of cocktails and two daily happy hours. (July 2013)

  • P.F. Chang's

    801 W. Main Ave. Spokane - Downtown


    The menu melds traditional favorites - beef with broccoli, moo goo gai pan, lo mein - with oolong marinated sea bass, Chengdu spiced lamb and the curiously named Philip's Better Lemon Chicken. Pull up to the bar (a great option if there's a wait) order some lettuce wraps, and imagine you're at the P.F. Chang's in Vegas or perhaps Schaumburg, Illinois.

  • Pacific Avenue Pizza

    2001 W. Pacific Ave. Spokane - Downtown


    Sit out on the patio in Browne’s Addition in the evening sun. Leaf through the Transformers comic book the menus come in. And then order a pizza — yeah, sandwiches make the menu, but this place is about pizza — with a name like the Gladiator (meat, mushrooms, sausage, pepperoni) or the MAC (white and red sauce, chicken, artichoke, bacon). Or go with our favorite: the gourmet barbecue chicken. Vegetarians, try the Leonilda. (July 2013)
  • Paddy's Sports Bar

    601 W. Appleway Ave. Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls


    Rows of pool tables and ample room to set up a shot make Paddy's the only good venue in Coeur d'Alene if you're looking to play a serious game and split a pitcher without the fiasco of the bar scene. Nights are usually chill, and there's always someone to challenge to a game of pool if you're bored, lonely, or feeling lucky. (January 2013)
  • Park Inn

    107 W. Ninth Ave. Spokane - South


    As Sacred Heart’s campus grows around the Park Inn, this South Hill institution remains untouched by time. They serve straightforward bar fare here, and what we would argue are the cheesiest pizzas you can find in the Inland Northwest. This old-school approach seems to be working — the P.I. is consistently packed with health-care workers, neighborhood regulars, and impromptu class reunions. (July 2013)

  • Peacock Room Lounge

    10 S. Post St. Spokane - Downtown


    If you’re in the mood for a scotch neat, say, or a Sazerac or a Ramos gin fizz, you’d want to order it in the sort of place where the bartender would nod knowingly, and say, “Very good, sir.” Bartenders at the Peacock Room know a great number of classic cocktails. All the martinis are doubles, and the gorgeous stained-glass ceiling is an experience in itself. (June 2013)
  • Pend d'Oreille Winery

    301 Cedar St. Sandpoint


    Sandpoint’s Pend d’Oreille Winery offers samples in its bright downtown tasting room (open daily), and you can dine in the adjacent Bistro Rouge Cafe. The sweet Huckleberry Blush is perennially popular, as is the Bistro Rouge red blend. (July 2013)

  • PJ's Pub

    1717 N. Monroe Spokane - North


    In PJ’s, my ears are assaulted with loud rock music in the vein of 3 Doors Down, Staind and Daughtry. I flinch. I’m on a level a few feet higher than a pool game and the bar. Stairs lead up to another level with more pool, darts and a karaoke pit. Some raucous and strange woman is yelling at me. I smile and ignore her. Sitting upstairs, I see layers of different decorating philosophies — and perhaps eras — from this one vantage: stucco on one wall, wood paneling on another, straight-up wood on one more and brick. This, without a doubt, is a dive. (ND)

  • Post Street Ale House

    1 N. Post St. Spokane - Downtown


    Post Street’s prime downtown Spokane location, across from the Davenport Hotel, draws a mix of businessmen, concertgoers, sports fans and college kids. If you go, try the burger, which pairs well with the house sauce. Feeling more adventurous? Go for the fried pickle, a sweet, deep-fried morsel that can be enjoyed with one of their 26 beers.

  • Press

    909 S. Grand Blvd. Spokane - South


    What is a tasteful, modern coffeehouse in the morning transforms to a trendy neighborhood bar at night. It’s conceivable to spend an entire day at Press, starting with coffee or pressed juice and ending with a glass of wine, a beer or an inventive cocktail like the (fresh-pressed) grapefruit martini.

  • Prospectors

    12611 N. Division St. Spokane - North


    Prospectors’ natural log interior and granite fireplaces give this north-side restaurant a mountain lodge feel. So of course what you want here is comfort food. And that’s what you get at Prospectors. In epic portions. Burgers, brick-oven-cooked pizza, po’ boys and “Mom’s Meatloaf” are served up at lunch and dinner, and hearty country-style breakfasts start the morning right. (July 2013)
  • Rain Lounge

    1007 W. First Ave. Spokane - Downtown


    While it’s an ideally located place for a drink before or after an event at the Fox, you don’t need to have somewhere else to go to enjoy Rain Lounge. But come hungry, because this brick-brimmed bar that shares a kitchen with Scratch Restaurant has late night and happy hour menus, and a generous selection of wine, beer and high-end cocktails. (July 2013)
  • Red Lion BBQ

    126 N. Division St. Spokane - Downtown


    Red Lion BBQ is known for strong drinks, great wings and an incredibly casual atmosphere (not exactly a first-date venue). This legendary sports bar also is a non-official gathering place for University of Montana alums... unless there are other people who go to a bar to watch the Grizzlies. Unique in that this place stays open well into the late-night hours, the Red Lion serves barbecue standards like tri-tip and ribs, but they also do salmon and a long list of hot sandwiches. (July 2013)
  • Red Robin

    725 W. Main Ave. Spokane - Downtown


    With tall, chocolaty malts, bottomless fries and burgers you can hardly wrap your lips around, this gourmet burger joint will satiate your cravings for a big, juicy, American burger. Though being sung to by a herd of clapping, grinning servers is probably obnoxious to an adult, what kid doesn’t want that attention, not to mention the free ice cream for their birthday? Or their “birthday,” if you catch our drift. (December 2012)

  • Red Room Lounge

    521 W. Sprague Ave. Spokane - Downtown


    The Red Room focuses on bringing in live music, drawing young-ish weekend partiers and maintaining its fun and festive vibe. Its alcohol selection is so big the bartender needs a ladder to reach everything. It’s also home to one of the best in-house sound systems in town, so both the live shows and DJs sound top notch.
