Visiting Spokane? Check out our Top Five Spokane Valley Restaurants:
Are you planning a visit to come and tour the World Wide Group™ building out here in lovely Spokane Valley, Washington? Will you be stopping through on your way to a function? We love visitors and we have some great tour guides!
You’ll probably need to eat while you’re here, right? Take it from us, you’re going to want to try every one of our Top 5 Spokane Valley Restaurants while in town, and you can’t go wrong with any of these fantastic options.
We don’t like to play favorites, but when we gaze out the doors of our building, Thai Kitchen is just a hop, skip, and a jump away. We hop, skip, and jump over there quite often (Thai Tuesdays, anyone?). So frequently, in fact, that the owners created a World Wide Group sign for our table!
If you love Thai food, you will love Thai Kitchen. They are family-owned, authentic, and every dish is made fresh when ordered. Make this your lunch spot when you have a few extra minutes and a hankering for Thai (tom yum soup and cashew chicken are the most popular at our table!). Call in your order ahead of time for quicker service and enjoy the comfort of the best Thai food we’ve ever had. Stop in more than once and you’ll likely be remembered by name.
Trick of the trade: This is NOT fast food. It is slow, amazing food that is well worth the wait!
Monday–Friday: 11 a.m.–2 p.m.

Embers by the Lake might be a few minutes out of your way, but they’re well worth the extra drive. On the jaunt out there, you might be met by a mama moose and babies, deer, and other inland PNW local wildlife. Walking in, you’ll be surrounded by good vibes and a huge woodfire pizza oven pumping out some amazing pizza pies.
Husband and wife owners at Embers quit the hustle and bustle to slow things down a bit. “Slow things down” to them means making and serving pizzas four days a week and charming their customers with fun conversation, craft beer and wine, appetizers, incredible pizza, (make sure you try the “Goin’ Back to Cali” and “The Reuben”), and lemon pie gelato for dessert!
Every season at Embers offers something for everyone. Watch whatever local game is on at the bar (pro tip: The owners are of the Seahawks persuasion). It’s a snow globe in winter with s’mores over the fire on the heated patio, and the lazy days of summer offer incredible sunsets and live music overlooking Hauser Lake.
Thursday–Sunday: 4 p.m.–9 p.m.
Craft & Gather is a chef-inspired neighborhood restaurant nestled in the Spokane Valley with sprawling views of the surrounding hills. This local, hidden treasure features a full bar with a focus on local brewers and an array of seating with family tables, a patio with yard games during the summer, lounge couches, and bar seating.
Stop in for a drink and apps during Happy Hour, every day from 3–6 p.m. Think wings, sliders, burrata, and calamari. Or spend an evening trying out the Cuban or the Wagyu Craft burger with their garlic bacon Brussels sprouts from the main menu. The food, the people, and the atmosphere at Craft & Gather are comfortable, approachable, and fun. Whatever you decide to try from the menu will surely exceed your expectations.
Monday–Thursday: 3 p.m.–9 p.m.
Friday & Saturday: 3 p.m.–10 p.m.
Sunday: 11 a.m.–8 p.m.
New to the Spokane Valley restaurant scene, Crimson Hearth offers an upscale and relaxed atmosphere for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Their European-style menu is packed with pastry goodness, including items such as traditional aebelskivers, pillow-y beignets, and a hollandaise sauce that doesn’t quit.
The food at Crimson Hearth isn’t the only draw; the staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and offer great recommendations for everyone.
Pro tip: The Crimson Cheese Board on the dinner menu is exactly what you want in a charcuterie board … including brûléed apples!
