When the Kalispel Tribe bought the former Spokane Country Club, they tapped Executive Chef Tyler Schwenk (former of Beverly's at the Coeur d'Alene Resort) to create a menu that captured an upscale gastropub feel, but that was also family-friendly. The result is a widely varying menu featuring Schwenk's take on youthful foods and traditional classics alike, like the lobster corn dog appetizer, or the honey-stung fried chicken entrée. With sweeping views of the golf course below, a cozy bar and sizable patio that offers spectacular sunset views through the trees, 1898 is a place for both special occasions and post-golf refreshments. Daily happy hours from 4-6 pm offer downsized versions of many of Schwenk's regular menu mainstays, and Tuesday night hosts "Burgers and Brews," where diners can choose between two featured burgers that come with a 20-ounce pint of beer, all for the cool price of $15. Portions at 1898 are hearty, and with so many options, no matter your reason for stopping in, you'll find more than enough to sate your hunger and slake your thirst. (CHEY SCOTT)
