Steamworks is a fairly large pub located steps away from Waterfront station. The first floor separated into bar and dining. Downstairs, its got a more grungy feel with a pool table and loud customers enjoying the night. I’ve been there several times, sometimes with large meet up groups, or other times with just a friend. The food has been generally good.
We were there on a Monday evening around 9:30pm. We got seated fairly quickly considering how busy it was. We also had a huge number of people – like 12, so I thought we’d had to wait a while. But since it was a large place, it didn’t take them long before we were escorted downstairs.
As soon as we sat down, one of my friend ordered her dish right away since she had to leave asap. That was a good idea because after that, the server never came to get our order. Seemed like forever…
After I ordered STEAMWORKS award winning chili , the server came back telling me that they were out of chili since kitchen was closing down. Whose fault is that? It took so long for them to take our orders, and to report that back to me. I ordered the tandoori chicken salad $14.99 which my friend had ordered first. She was long gone by then.

The chicken was really good! Great salad and crispy chips but terrible service! I can’t believe I left tip! However, this is probably an exception – I hope! I’d recommend going there – it’s got good food and atmosphere.
