Fodor's Review

Right off the Maple Street Bridge, this is the state's oldest railroad-car restaurant. Built as an observation car in 1906, it has original light fixtures, stained-glass windows, and mahogany details. Breakfast is the specialty here, and portions are large; for dinner there's such comfort food as turkey with mashed potatoes, meat loaf, and chicken-fried steak. Everything is made from scratch. The North Spokane branch (10929 N. Newport Highway; 509/465–2464) is housed in a luxury Pullman car built in 1913.
