“Friendly Tavern, exceptional food”
Review of The Blackbird

The Blackbird
Ranked #38 of 935 Restaurants in Spokane
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$12 - US$28
Description: The concept, atmosphere and flavors have changed. Our scratch food, exceptional service and extensive offerings of beer, wine and spirits are even better than before. Serving up traditional Southern barbeque with a few twists, The Blackbird has the freshest wood-fired fare in Spokane. Our newly-crafted cocktails are prepared to pair with our smoky plates, adding to our already-comprehensive spread of beers (34 on tap), wines (4 on tap) and spirits. Adjacent to the Spokane River, we’re on the restored first floor of the historic Broadview Dairy building. Friends, family and travelers alike gather here for the fresh, locally-minded food, and fun, casual surroundings. Want to bring a crowd? Our banquet rooms can accommodate meetings, working lunches, private dinner parties, sports fans watching ball while drinking beers and much more.

We stopped in for lunch and had a great time. It was about 2:00pm so not a lot of people. Our serve was great. Knew the menu inside and out. Very good describing not only the food selection, but also the beer selection. Food was fantastic. The Mac and cheese creamy and rich, the charcuterie was very nice, and the pork belly sandwich was worth a trip all by itself. The chorizo corn dogs are nicely plated, but not too exceptional. Prices are moderate to slightly expensive, but great value all around!

My buddy and I came here for a late lunch and the food and service did not disappoint! Started with a few pints of beer with the bacon fat popcorn which was so good. We then had the famous brisket sandwich and shared their home made garlic fries. Amazing food and service and will be back. Thank you!!

We had the worlds nicest waitress.. She put up with a bunch of us that were coming in at different times, ordering food at different times, but all drinking! She was extremely patient and accommodating. The food is to die for. I had two of the most amazing things I have ever had in my life.. The bacon fat popcorn, and the Mi Mi burger.. DELICIOUS!!! I don’t know if I will ever be able to eat normal popcorn ever again.

We recently at here with a large group of friends. Everyone enjoyed their meals. We shared bacon fat popcorn, yum! Brisket sandwich, Mac and cheese and Mimi burger and fries were all enjoyed. The deserts we tried were also tasty and large enough to share. The key lime donuts were great. I will definitely visit again soon.
