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, with large portions and unique items like Creole Benedict with lobster and crab. 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.
