Since 1974, Clinkerdagger has been serving gourmet eats in a structure that was built for a very different purpose: milling flour. Built in 1895—right around the time young adults began flinging flour at each other as part of the courtship ritual—the mill was designed to use the power of the Spokane River. But though the mill's location was chosen for practical reasons, Clinkerdagger took it over for aesthetic ones. Today, visitors get to soak up views of the rushing tides and city skyline while they dig into the restaurant's classic American dishes, including signature shellfish creations. The pan-seared shellfish fettuccine, for instance, is a maritime bounty of prawns, mussels, clams, and scallops. But the menu also features plenty of beef and chicken dishes, highlighted by bacon-wrapped meatloaf served with roasted wild mushrooms, mashed yukon potatoes, and a brandy-mustard sauce.
